okay how i found this site was by searching the web for the Hindu term for a evil or malevolent witch or sorcerer. Now i am still looking for such a thing, even the word for it in a language of the Sub-Continent would surfice, i havn't been able to find anything suitable, so anything would be helpful :D

thanks and may your Gods bless you

Jin? Dijin?

How about the Asuras? (see here (http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Kurma) and here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asura).)

I'm not sure if this is the word you were looking for, but, a Google Translator search for "evil witch" into Hindi pulled up this:

duṣṭa cuṛaila (http://translate.google.com/translate_t?hl=en&ie=UTF8)

Hope that helps a bit :).

Jin? Dijin?

That would be Arabic.

thanks all, and its true Dijinni (Alternate Dijinn, Jinn) are malevolent spirits in arabic folklore and similar to cast out, along with Iblis (Lucifer) from Heaven by Allah for not bowing to Adam. Asuras are actualy a type of demon in general and though I see where your going with this Lost_Sheep.

duṣṭa cuṛaila (http://translate.google.com/translate_t?hl=en&ie=UTF8) u say? Which word is which? this is greatly useful adn i'd love to know what sight u got this from cuase Gods know I can't find a web translation that gives me the english version for pronounciation, this could be very helpful,

Thank you to all that helped! :D
