Human or Inhuman demon: Nepalese priests sucking fresh blood of goat!!!

"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way in which its animals are treated.
I hold that the more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection by man from the cruelty of man.
I feel that spiritual progress does demand at some stage that we should cease to kill our fellow creatures for the satisfaction of our bodily wants.
I do not regard flesh-food as necessary for us at any stage and under any clime in which it is possible for human beings ordinarily to live. I hold flesh-food to be unsuited to our species."
- Gandhi
Even being a Nepali myself I'm foreigner to our own cultures, traditions and rituals that we have in Nepal. It is shocking to know in the name of "Ancestors worshipping festivals" in Nepal priests suck fresh blood of "He" goat.
One Nepali lady said about this picture:
" Nepali men drink blood the concern is that I think we need to respect every culture and their norms.It is our traditional ritual (Khaptari Basnet Kul Puja) which happened once in three years. Although this picture is not about our puja but I think you are trying to refer similar culture in Nepal. We do this when we worship our god and especially to make our god happy (Although I am not a religious person). And my question is that is it ETHICAL to share a picture of an Animal right club and compare with "Nepali Men"? Is it Ethical ? Moreover, we consume lots of Meat and Fish at our home for our "lovely" lunch and dinner but we take this as for granted (Since we are non-veg). And we even don't think of it when it comes to us but are always forward to point out others. Also we believe that drinking raw blood (after few processing) will help us to be healthy." 

Naresh Bk RN (saint Manu made lower caste) said:
Most of the hinduism animal worship called Diwali..pujari drinks all the blood of goat....specially it's happened inside of home...lot of system in hinduism...this system is in braman hand..if thy don't like they can change the most of braman started to not eat his son and daughter cooking. like baism... "

I just wonder is this practice also done by Indian Brahmin or just Nepalese Brahmin because Hinduism is the same both in India and Nepal. However, Indian and Nepalese way of practising and observing Hinduism feast, festivals, rituals, customs and cultures are very different.
