In order to discourage peoples belief in black magic, The Karnataka state government passed the Karnataka Prevention and Eradication of Inhuman Evil Practices and Black Magic Bill 2017 bill. According to the latest reports, the Karnataka has found that the black magic can be a risky thing in the state, and just to make sure everything is safe. The state government has launched the bill on black magic. The bill was tabled by the Social Welfare Minister H Anjaneya and it was approved on the basis of voice votes.
The bill was formed up by some of the specialists at the national law school university. Later in Bengaluru, a special team of trustees framed the draft to a bill. The bill was pending since the year of 2016 before putting everything. However, after a year back in 2017 the bill is cleared.
However like the Maharashtra’s ‘Counteractive action and Eradication of Human Sacrifice and other Inhuman, Evil and Aghori Practices and Black Magic Act, 2013. The Karnataka’s bill does not mention about any of such superstitious practices. In the Karnataka Prevention and Eradication of Inhuman Evil Practices and Black Magic Bill 2017 bill, there is only 23 rehearses that would be restricted in the state.
Some of these restrictions include announcing a person as the ‘Shaitan’ or the demon’s incarnation. Or Hanging a man upside down and making them breathe and stay in the chili smoke. Or touching the person’s body parts with a warming element in order to abhorrent spirits. It also includes killing an animal by biting their neck or listen to someone who is pretending to own supernatural powers. The restrictions also apply on piercing tongue with a rod or throwing children from a height.
However, this restrictions will still need a few more years to get applied to the state citizens. Apart from passing a bill the government also should promote their restrictions to the citizens so more people can get to know about the bill. And less risk of black magic will be there in the Karnataka state.
