Title: Thugs -> Θαγκ
Post by: evdoxia on 09 Nov, 2006, 13:54:40
A thoughtful comparative analysis of three religious groups, the Zealots, the Assassins and Thugs, by David Rapoport, indicates at least as many differences as similarities between them, particularly in the matter of intention.

Και Θαγκ (http://www.google.gr/search?hl=el&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Ael-GR%3Aofficial&q=%22%CE%98%CE%B1%CE%B3%CE%BA&btnG=%CE%91%CE%BD%CE%B1%CE%B6%CE%AE%CF%84%CE%B7%CF%83%CE%B7&meta=lr%3Dlang_el).

Traditional view

The English word thug, meaning a violent criminal, comes from the Hindi word thag (and originally from the Sanskrit word sthaga), meaning a thief or villain.

The original Thugs were bands of roving criminals in India who strangled and robbed travellers. Originally these gangs committed murder following precise religious rites to honour Kali, the Hindu goddess of destruction.The crime was known as Thuggee.

In the 19th century Thugs were strangling 40,000 people a year but by then many cases of Thuggee were straightforward robbery with no religious significance.
