Baby with tail 'reincarnation of Hindu god'

Date: 14-01-2002

Crowds are flocking to Indian temples to see a Muslim baby with a 'tail' who is believed to be the reincarnation of a Hindu god.



The 11-month-old boy has been named Balaji or Bajrangbali, another name for monkey-faced Lord Hanuman.
He is reported to have a 4in 'tail' caused by genetic mutations during the development of the foetus.
Iqbal Qureshi, the child's maternal grandfather, is taking Balaji from temple to temple where people offer money to see the boy.
Mr Qureshi says the baby has nine spots on his body like Lord Hanuman and showed them to journalists, reports Indian newspaper The Tribune.
There have been other cases of babies born with tails. A report appeared in The New England Journal of Medicine in 1982 by Dr Fred Ledley.
His paper entitled 'Evolution and the Human Tail' concerned a baby born with a 2in growth on its back.
