Repeal the law against black magic, since it is treating a religious act performed for the well-being of people as a crime!

Filing a case for chanting ‘Mahamrutyunjay Jap’ to prevent accidents on Samruddhi Expressway is condemnable !

Many accidents are happening on Samruddhi Expressway. Maharashtra Government is trying to find a solution to this problem. The members of Shri Swami Samartha Sect from Dindori (Nashik) recited ‘Mahamrutyunjay Jap’ 1.25 crore times with the resolve of saving people’s lives. However Buldhana Police filed a complaint under the Black Magic Act, 2013, as demanded by Dr Hamid Dabholkar of ‘Maharashtra Andhashraddha Nirmoolan Samiti (MANiS). Treating a religious act performed with the people’s well-being in mind, as a crime, is a misuse of the Act. It has been proved through this complaint that the Maharashtra Prevention and Eradication of Human Sacrifice and other Inhuman, Evil and Aghori Practices and Black Magic Act does not eradicate superstitions, but it also eradicates Hindus’ religious faith. We had staged several agitations opposing this Act. If anyone performs the ritual of sacrificial fire for the welfare of the world, MANS will demand the filing of a case even against the concerned person and create problems in the performance of every religious act; therefore, such black law, that creates difficulties in Hindus’ religious rituals and attacks their faith, should be repealed, demanded Sunil Ghanwat, the State Coordinator of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) for Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh. He said he would soon meet the State Chief Minister in this regard.


Mr Ghanwat said further that Maharashtra Prevention and Eradication of Human Sacrifice and other Inhuman, Evil and Aghori Practices and Black Magic Act, 2013 is against Hindu Dharma. If this Act is against cheating, financial exploitation or oppression, what is wrong with performing religious rituals, praying, etc., by some people with their money, that too with an honourable purpose of preventing accidents on the expressway and saving people’s lives ? Hindus need an answer from the members of MANiS and Police, who have taken cognizance of the complaint under their pressure.

The State Chief Minister and Dy Chief Minister pray to Shri Pandurang every year on the occasion of ‘Ashadhi’ and ‘Kartiki Ekadashi’ for the welfare of people and farmers, for good crops, and for the eradication of natural calamities like famine. Are the MANiS members going to file cases against them too ? Many ministers perform ‘Shri Satyanarayan Puja’ at their residence or office to eradicate obstacles in an auspicious event organised by them. Are MANiS members going to file cases against them ? How can one think about people’s welfare by filing cases against those who pray for people’s welfare ? This law is being used as a weapon to attack Hindu Dharma. MANS members have never come forward to file cases against Christian missionaries who hold programmes to cheat people by claiming to cure incurable diseases like AIDS, cancer, etc., though they have filed a case for performing ‘Mahamrutyunjay Jap’. It proves their Anti-Hindu Dharma stance. The Government should foil the conspiracy of MANiS and repeal the Maharashtra Prevention and Eradication of Human Sacrifice and other Inhuman, Evil and Aghori Practices and Black Magic Act, 2013, demanded Mr Ghanwat.
