Enough of Superstition

The religiously superstitious are working hard to globally revive polio, most notably in Pakistan. Ironically, the Qur’an has absolutely nothing to say about polio vaccines. They were not even invented until the 1950s. It is just plain superstition and rumour running rampant, nothing to do with religion at all. Generally we try to bend over backwards to accommodate religious and superstitious nonsense, but when it results in child deaths, it is time to put our feet down.
