Anti – Superstition Bill?

The Karnataka Cabinet has passed the Karnataka Prevention and Eradication of Inhuman Evil Practices and Black Magic Bill, 2017. This Bill has been much debated and much delayed and still needs to be cleared by the State Legislature before it can effectively do away with practices involving black magic and various acts which causes harm to humans and animals alike. It it a very interesting piece of legislation which aims to ban practices like ritualistic sacrifices, segregation of menstruating women etc.
