Bengaluru: Writer Chandrashekar Patil on Sunday said that the review committee for recommending changes in the crucial Anti-Superstition Bill proposed by the state government will be headed by retired judge Shivraj Patil.

Addressing the gathering at a programme organised by the Forum for Anti-Superstition Bill, Patil said that after the committeee makes its recommendations, the government will be urged to enact the Bill.

Gautham of Alternative Law Forum said the draft Bill required more clarity as possibilities of it being misinterpreted to oppress the already subjugated communities were very high.

Since several laws that aim to prevent violence which might or might not be caused due to superstition already exist, there should be a clear demarcation between existing laws and the proposed Bill, he said.

G N Nagaraj of the forum said the body would organise demonstrations at the taluk level across the state on October 30, pressing for the enactment of the Bill.

After the demonstrations, a rally will be taken out in Bengaluru on November 1 and a memorandum will be submitted to the state government.

Exhibitions of posters depicting the perils of superstitious practices were displayed near Samsa Open Theatre, Ravindra Kala Kshetra.
