But honestly, they may call themselves Muslim but nothing they are doing is from Islam.

I've never heard of this either before today.
But honestly, they may call themselves Muslim but nothing they are doing is from Islam. First of all, going to shrines is *not* permitted in Islam. It is a form of Shirk (giving 'partners' to God), which is THE biggest, only unforgiveable sin in Islam.
Second, it's haram (again not permitted) to believe in "luck" (good and bad) since we are to believe that everything happens by the will of God.
Third, it's a known principle that "There should be neither harming nor reciprocating harm." and throwing a baby from a building is definitely harming it in some way, even if it's just scaring the poor thing to death.
Sorry, felt I had to reply.
I also posted on the news thread that got removed, but I just wanted to mention that in india, sometimes the line between culture and religion gets super blurred.
For example, hindu (indian) weddings and muslim (indian) weddings have a lot of rituals/traditions/practices in common even though they arent the same religion. And both may consider it part of their religion.
It's kind of neat actually
