Cut the bullshit...

Have you ever read something that was so surreal yet real... in the most oddest of ways?

Yeah, I have.

I received a message from my friend Sobia - who had a mini sorta rant on Facebook about it - and it was the most bizzarest of messages.

Here it is:

"Please Read and spread to all the girls u know:
Guys: to all ur friends, sisters, cousins etc. Please send it around

A girl applied Mehndi called "Red Cone" before few months of her wedding, after applying that mehndi her hands n legs got seriously infected with some disease, so doctors suggested to cut off her hand n legs .. Instead her parents gave her poison..


Please Pass it on!

This cone is available everywhere with the name of
"PARTY MEHNDI RED CONE"
Kindly dont apply it!!!
Because it contains dangerous chemicals which can take ur life!
Dont think evn for a minute not to forward it bcz EID is nearer girls buy such cones(plz save other's life)
Its 0ur duty plz..
AND INFORM YOUR SISTERS AND COUSINS NOT TO USE IT!!"

Erm... okay?

Now I'm not talking about the product itself, because there are mendhi (Henna, in case you didn't know haha) that is pretty bad for your skin and can cause reactions as they contain a ton of chemicals. But I don;t think they cause reactions that are THAT bad.

But more so the fact that there is a message going around about the product... and what happened to the girl... and I can't help wondering a number of things:
- Why haven't they reported the company to the police? Wouldn't it be best to get the authorities involved if there is a life threatening concoction in a tube. Especially that they know the brand name too :S Wouldn't it be best to shut the company down? Or even make it illegal?
- WHY would a doctor suggest amputating your arms and legs?! I don't understand... Especially with technology these days, I'm sure there is something much more ideal and will actually do the trick of removing the chemicals rather than remvoing the entire limb.
- Actually wait, before all of this, WHY didn't the girl just go to the doctor or A&E if she noticed that her skin was reacting to the product, like any normal human being would? Isn't that the first thing you'd do? OR look it up on NetDoctor?
- How come the parents haven't been prosecuted yet?
As harsh as it may seem, they should be prosecuted. They gave posion to their daughter and killed her... I'm pretty sure thats homicide, and there are laws against that!

So, after all of this thinking, I'm in two minds about this.

It seems to drastic and really far fetched, and therefore that makes me think this is fake.
Yet, there are places in Asia where this would happen, and it's perfectly okay for it to happen and there are no laws against it. As sad and cruel as it may seem, it is true.

What do you think?

  1. It is possible to have a very bad reaction; 'this' bad, well, I agree there are some holes in this story. However, to discern that because the story is far-fetched in many ways that henna cones are 'not that bad' isn't the solution.

    We are fighting PPD and many other harmful ingredients in 'black henna' daily; so any alert is a good warning, imo.

    I, too, would like to know more about this story:)

  3. Better be safe than sorry. Would there be greater impact if a bride will not wear her prized mehndi or henna on her wedding? Best wishes ladies.
