Mumbai: A day after the death of activist Dr Narendra Dabholkar, the Maharashtra Cabinet adopted the anti-black magic and superstition ordinance on Wednesday.
Protests erupted in the city after Dabholkar was murdered in broad daylight yesterday and they questioned Maharastra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan for not taking enough steps to take up the bill and discuss it.
Dabholkar had founded the Andhashraddha NIrluman Samiti; anti- superstition movement to change the mindset of the people and had also started to work against widespread superstition.
He was killed yesterday when he was out for his morning walk. Two assailants came on a bike and shot him. A huge manhunt has been launched to trace the killers.
