The third All India Kannada Vachana Sahitya and Samskritika Sammelan resolved to urge the state government to table the contentious ‘Anti-superstition Bill’ in the Assembly soon. A resolution passed in this regard at the Sammelan will be sent to the government.

The Sammelan concluded on Sunday. The resolution said the state government has planned to bring the Bill to ban a host of superstitious beliefs practised in Karnataka.

“If anybody has objection, they can approach the government and the Bill can be amended. So it is not right to protest against the Bill before tabling it in the Assembly,” the resolution said.

Shivamurthy Murugha Sharana of Chitradurga Brihan Mutt, Mallikarjuna Murugharajendra Swami of Bekkinakal Mutt, Gurubasava Swami of Pandomatti Virakta Mutt, Basava Machideva Swami of Madivala Gurupeetha and Sammelan president S R Gunjal,  former speaker B G Banakar, industrialist and former KPSC member S Rudre Gowda, All India Veerashaiva Mahasabha district president Rudramuni S Sajjan and Kottureshwara Rastapur Mutt have jointly taken a decision at the convention.

The people gathered at the Sammelan supported the decision, said a press release from Basava Marulasidda Swami of Basava Kendra.
