Karnataka Minister Spends Night At Crematorium To Bust Superstition!

In his fight against superstition, the Karnataka Excise Minister Satish Jarkiholi along with hundreds of people spent a night at a crematorium at Vaikunth Dham. It was also his way to observe the death anniversary of B R Ambedkar. Jarkiholi and hundred others had their dinner at the crematorium belonging to Belagavi City Corporation (BCC). He has been vociferous for bringing in the anti-superstition bill in the state assembly.

"By spending the night in the crematorium - firstly, I want to bust the myth that graveyards are places where ghosts reside and secondly, I want to clear the tag of fear attached to it. Graveyards are holy places, in fact," he said. Jarkiholi said that he would go on about his mission against superstitions even if he loses power and added that 'unless people do not fight the superstitious mindset, people belonging to lower castes and other backward classes would not get justice.
