Rajasthan brings Bill against witchcraft

Read more at: The Hindu

Branding women as witches, witchcraft and such practices will soon become punishable offences in Rajasthan. The Rajasthan Prevention of Witch-Hunting Bill, tabled in the Assembly, provides for life imprisonment if witch-hunting causes death, and imprisonment up to five years and a fine for practising witch-hunting, witchcraft and so on. At least 60 per cent of the fine will go to the victim for her treatment and rehabilitation.
Quote of the moment:
The world owes all its onward impulses to men ill at ease. The happy man confines himself within ancient limits.
