'Fishy' cure?

The legendary 'fish prasadam', so called to work around problems the term 'medicine' brings, will be dispensed to hordes that are bound to descend on Hyderabad, come Saturday. The 'prasadam' will be dispensed as an asthma “cure” packaged inside a live murrel fish.

HT Mint reports that since 2000, a small but seething opposition has decried the remedy as sheer quackery and protested the government’s tacit, at times overt, support of the magnetic annual event. Now, a public interest litigation filed in a Hyderabad city civil court challenges five government departments and the Gouds, the family dispensing the cure; the case comes up for hearing on 19 June.
