Astrology is Ancient Science - Highcourt

The Bombay High Court is hearing a petition, which seeks a ban on the Astrology, Vastushastra, etc. In reply to the petition, Dr R Ramkrishna (deputy drugs controller, government of India) said, "Ban on astrology and related sciences sought by the petitioner, which is a time-tested science more than 4,000 years old, is totally misconceived and unjustifiable".

Further, the affidavit said, the Drugs and Magic Remedies Act does not cover astrology and related disciplines. The act can be used only against misleading advertisements relating to drugs and magic remedies, such as an advertisement of a drug assuring the prevention of pregnancy, improvement of sexual power, etc, without any scientific basis.
