Established by a group of rationalists in Kerala in 2008, Dinkoism, the newest religion worships a superhero mouse.

Dinkan, the superhero mouse, is a native of a fictional Pankila forest from a children’s magazine. The holy book of Dinkoism  is the comic Balamangalam  which was featured in a children’s magazine series from 1983 to 2012.

According to the Dinkoists, time and space was created by Lord Dinkan. Lord Dinkan was eating a Cassava and he let out a laugh out of boredom which caused the formation of time of space. Thus,Lord Dinkan’s Big Laughter concept replaces the current Big Bang Theory.

Dinkoism is mainly inspired by a mock religious faith called Pastafarianism, which also has a flying spaghetti monster as a God. They have their own holy book, symbols, priest and parodies of devotional songs, said the sputnik.com report.

The core principle of the Dinkoists is to make satire of all other religious groups though they deny that they are a spoof religion.

“In our belief, Dinkan is the God who created this world. He is also the one who keeps the world as it is now. And, we believe Dinkoism is the most suitable religion for the modern age. This is the belief part, “says Sukesh Vadavil, spokesperson for the Mooshikasena (meaning mouse army) to Sputnik.

The Sputnik report also states that Dinkoists value human rights and all the modern-day values that a religion should have. Values such as animal rights, gender equality and freedom of speech are the nucleus of the belief.

The followers of Dinkoism had celebrated Akshaya Jetteeya on the 8th and 9th of May. They sold undergarments to the public as anyone who buys the undergarments would be blessed by Dinkan and would be prosperous in life, according to Dinkoists’ belief.  Akshaya Jetteeya is a parody on Akshaya Tritiya. Akshaya Tritiya is a holy day for Hindus and Jains. People generally buy gold on the auspicious day, as it is the ultimate symbol of wealth and prosperity.

The event was inaugurated at the historic Mithai Theru in Kozhikode by exchanging brief packets stuck with stickers of Dinkan among themselves. They told the curious crowd that gathered there that buying ‘Jetties’ (briefs) on the auspicious Akshaya Jetteeya day will bring good luck.

‘Akshaya Jetteeya’ and ‘Konaka Tritiya’ was celebrated in Kochi by selling ” undies that can cover the shame of corruption and communalism.”

With over 9000 Facebook followers, Dinkoism has spread around the world.
