Maharashtra has imposed the new law in response to the recent killing of rationalist Narendra Dabholkar.

Quote

The comprehensive new bill makes it illegal for anyone to engage in superstitious practices such as black magic and witchcraft. Maharashtra is the first state in India to enact such a law which could lead to similar restrictions being imposed elsewhere in the country.

(sighs)
Whenever possible always blame your problems on superstitious nonsense instead of real people.

Then if you outlaw said nonsense then the problems will magically stop....what a priceless mode of thinking, truly...priceless.

I doubt this bill will bring about any real change but it'll be interesting to see how things pan out from here. It is an interesting move on the part of the government.

I guess this is what the superstitious do now instead of putting a hex on someone. Just gun them down. I wonder how much effect the government's decree will have.

People should be free to practice whatever they want, as long as it doesn't harm anybody.

It is just another religion, just like all the others.
Don't know who told you otherwise.

From the link:

Quote

Among other things, the new law will ban inhuman practices, human sacrifice, rituals to enable sex selection by pregnant women, and all forms of acts known as 'Jaadu-Tona' in common parlance.

I've still a hard time seeing they'd ban a lot of things Vatican considers black magic, like less victimizing forms of divination. Or maybe they did, but I doubt it, since vedic astrology is an age-old practise in India, known to be harmless except for having a tradition of arranged marriages based on it in there, can't say I approve that as an astrologer but it's usually a victimless practise in the end, from the little I've heard.

Can you imagine? Can you choose?
One thing there's more room for, is humility. Can you answer the question whether we're the epitome of existence, or extensions of it? Whatever existence, god, holiness, the god particle, life, or whatever it is.
