DAVANAGERE: "Do not be afraid of devil and ghost. It is just a
superstitious belief," said Chitradurga Brihanmath pontiff Sri
Shivamurthy Murugharajendra swamiji. He was speaking at a public
meeting at Gandhinagar extension, a dalit colony of Davanagere on
Wednesday midnight, after taking out a padayatra in different streets
of the extension to create awareness among the citizens about
superstitious beliefs.

The padayatra was organized in view of the fear of devils and ghosts
being expressed by the citizens of the area. The seer came down
heavily on certain people responsible for creating and spreading such
false messages.

"We are living in the era of highly evolved society, with the
advancement of science and technology. There should not be any scope
for superstitious beliefs," the pontiff said.

He urged the residents not to be cheated through such blind beliefs.
Noted revolution thinker Prof B V Veerabhadrappa along with other
leaders of Gandhinagar were present.
