Its again and again proven that Stupidity has no boundaries.
Mahim beachfront is known to be one of the most polluted in the world. In normal circumstances, People will not even touch the seawater there unless you want to get some sort of skin disease. But last week thousands thronged to the Mahim creek to drink the normally filthy coastal water believing that it was holy.
On Friday night after local fishermen washed their hands in a stream off the Mahim bay after namaaz and allegedly found that the water was sweet, word began to spread about the 'miracle'. The miracle-tales were further stoked by the fact that the 'happening' had occurred in the vicinity of the old Mahim Dargah.
It was hilarious that Mineral Water Vendors did brisk business selling for as high as Rs 50. People bought the bottles and promptly emptied the contents into the sea and filled the bottles with sea water! Tell me how more stupid you can get!
The Water samples show that the water is highly unfit to drink, It would be Allah's karishma if they donot die of Gastroenteritis and other water-borne diseases. Now already overloaded BMC is bracing themselves for a possible outbreak of waterborne diseases.
Of course the simple explanation of Dilution will not hold water when it comes to matters of faith
