Is this what we get from the scholars of the end of days A lion in a costume beating himself. Is Allah swt humiliating the maraje'
But while that video is beyond revolting, I just wanted to point out that unless you can, without a shadow of a doubt, prove that all scholars who've seen this and/or have knowledge of this approve of it, your statement holds no water. Since its just as easy for someone who is anti-Shi'a to use this video and say "Is Allah SWT humiliating the Shi'a?"
There is ignorance and ignorant people in all quarters regardless if its within Islam in general, within Sunnism, Shiaism or within other religions or indeed even within Atheism. It is very easy for non-working scholars to mislead people into performing such acts, but that does not mean that ALL scholars are non-working.
In Pakistan you have such wierd practices "shia" do in Muharram it makes this video look tame. But you have scholars that support such embarrassing rituals (and other practices to make money) and you have those that speak out against it.
