Possessed by Jinn

These two entries by ‘e3ashig online’ about his grandfather’s possession by a jinn make fascinating reading.
It’s easy for those who are relatively new to Dubai, such as myself, to forget that the modern city around us isn’t that old at all. The events eashig describes probably happened only around 20 years ago, if I’ve judged his age right.
I like the fact that eashig, who is a practising doctor in the UK, reserves his judgement on the medicine used to treat his grandfather and the process he went through to heal this particular illness. Traditional medicine works for some – although I can’t see exorcisms being available on the NHS any time soon.
