Anti-Superstition bill introduced in Karnataka assembly
Karnataka Prevention and Eradication of Inhuman Evil Practices and Black Magic Bill, 2017, popularly known as the ‘Anti-Superstition Bill’, was tabled in the Legislative Assembly.
It seeks to ban the controversial ‘made snana’ ritual (where devotees roll over plantain leaves that have leftover food) in public/religious places.
The Bill, however, does not regulate astrology or Vaastu practices. It primarily aims to protect people against evil and sinister practices and combat inhuman and sinister practices propagated/performed in the name of “supernatural” or black magic.
