There is a likelihood of now presenting Black Magic Bill in the Legislative Council. The bill is anti-Hindu and its presentation was postponed during the monsoon session of the Legislative Assembly. Shri. Diwakar Raote, a senior leader of Shiv Sena gave a representation cum request to the Speaker of the Legislative Council Shri. Shivajirao Deshmukh.
It is said in the representation, �there is likely to be pandemonium in the Assembly hall due to the suicide cases of farmers and incident that took place at Vani and the atmosphere can become very tense. It has been the past experience that many times during such pandemonium; Bills have been passed in a hurry without holding discussions. So far you must have realized that only a handful of persons who have no knowledge in such matters are trying to present the Bill which is against Hindu traditions and customs and will bring so many restrictions on Hindus for performing rituals if passed.
When there is already a provision under clause 25 of the Indian Constitution to take care of offenses related to Black magic, there is no need for a separate Act for the same. Earlier, the Supreme Court has also given its views on clause 25 that even the Parliament won't be able to change this clause. Decisions taken by the Supreme Court, after much deliberation, are applicable to all the States in India and it was accepted by the people in the present Government although at that time they were in opposition. Still the State Government is trying to mislead people and we Hindus can not accept such things.� In the end, Shri Raote has appealed, ''the only request through this representation is not to play with the feelings and faith of Hindus and decision on the Bill may be taken only after giving time to every member of this House to express his opinion on the same.''
