Bengaluru : Chief Minister Siddharamayya has granted permission to present the Bill on anti-superstitions Act during impending Legislative Assembly session. Dr. G. Ramakrushna, a philosopher gave the above information to reporters after conclusion of work-shop held on anti-superstitions Act at ‘Central College Senate’ Hall on 24th May 2015.
Dr. Ramakrushna said, “The Government had not given up the issue of passing anti-superstitions Act but it was only temporarily kept on hold. A draft of the Bill will be given to all members of the State Legislative Assembly and their views would be sought. The Bill will be presented only after this process, promised the Chief Minister Siddharamayya. Deliberate attempts are made to spread misunderstanding about the anti-superstitions Bill 2013, drafted privately. It was discussed before media and on different platforms with imaginary objections. The 3 important points of the Bill are – ‘Do not do something that would malign the image of a human being (e.g. ‘Made-snana’ at Subramanya where people grovel on used plates of Brahmins which should be avoided); a person should not perform a ritual that requires being violent to self (e.g. causing wounds on body with sharp weapons as done during Moharum) and avoid violence in the name of faith. The Act is not intended at putting curb on personal religious rituals.” Maharashtra Andh-shraddha Nirmulan Samiti’s Manisha Mahajan and scientist Prof. Prajwal Shastri addressed the work-shop.
Draft prepared by two universities !
National Law School of India and ‘Kanunu (Law) Vishwavidyalaya’ from Hubli have prepared an independent copy of draft of the Act. The Government can adopt any one of the drafts or take points from both the drafts and make own draft. Ramakrushna said that even before a copy of the draft was presented to the Government, media managed to get few of its points.
