Swimming in the Ganges most certainly will make you ill, considering it's full of poo, pee and dead bodies. What sort of people would treat a river they claim to be holy to them in that manner???
'So the Ganges is worshipped by Hindus as a divine goddess who is, by definition, pure.But empirical evidence tells another story. The goddess can be a person.
Heavy metals, pesticides, arsenic, mercury and even, in one place, reported traces of plutonium contaminate the great waterway. To say nothing of disease-causing fecal coliform-animal and human waste in water.
Every day our modest laboratory in Banaras takes samples of fecal coliform at one or more ritual bathing ghats. The count can reach as high as about 67,000 times the accepted Indian standard for human bathing.
This count rises still higher at those ritual bathing areas near the drainage pipes that dump raw municipal sewage into Ganges.
Drinking untreated Ganges water in Banaras is not exactly salutary and could conceivably move you far more swiftly into the Next Life. Bearing in mind that up to 40,000 pilgrims arrive every day in the holy city to ritually sip some river water, and you can easily understand what our campaign is all about. And because of Ganges pollution overall, across her entire length, millions suffer. To die of dysentery is a ghastly exit.
The Ganges is thought to perhaps contribute to the rests of as many as 1.5 million Indian children under the age of 5, struck down by waterborne diseases such as dysentery and diarrhea. '

Yes I know what is a nazi, I am happy hello well aware what is a Nazi, but I don't work for a call centre, so actually I know what a Nazi is.
No I don't, you obviously do though.
You mean if a train full of people had one lunatic inside the train set it alight to blame the people outside of the train?? After all that's what happened at Gujarat.
