KASUR-The administration has turned a blind eye to the activities of fake faith healers who have been befooling the illiterate and poor people since long in the name of ‘spirituality’ across the district.

The report of a survey conducted by The Nation reveals that women are the easy and worst victim of these ‘healers’ spirituality’ who generally believe in whatever they say. These so-called faith healers aim at nothing but swindling people, especially the women out of money by telling them falsehood and fabricated stories. They claim to possess unique knowledge of black magic through which they can get people’s problems regarding love-marriage, exorcism, cruel mother-in-law etc resolved. But in reality, their objective is to sweep pockets of the poor people and for the purpose, they demand hefty amounts of money from people visiting them for solution to their problems. Worse yet, these healers are allegedly involved in drug-peddling. Moreover, they perform objectionable acts with women, visiting them for spiritual healing and shot the videos. The women, later on, are blackmailed into paying money.

During the survey, the correspondent approached several victims of these healers who, seeking anonymity, told him that these healers have destroyed the lives of many people. They said that they are free to loot people and ruin their lives as there has never been a heavy-handed crackdown on them. They demanded the administration and police take notice of the situation and launched a vigorous crackdown on fake healers so that lives of poor and innocent people could be saved.
