Karnataka may ban TV astrology shows

Bengaluru: Karnataka government plans to ban shows which peddle astrology based on zodiac signs. CM Siddaramaiah said: “At 7 a.m. channels air programs related to astrology, horoscope and zodiac signs. Women of our houses sit with dedication to watch. Earlier, astrologers used to offer free horoscope tips based on zodiac signs. But now in the battle for TRPs, they include predictions on natural calamities and political prospects. They tailor programmes to match current issues.” This growing addiction to such shows, which he believes propagate fallacy and blind belief, is sought to be brought under the ambit of the government's proposed anti-superstition bill.
