Title: Information awareness through effective information support system to stop superstitious practices
Authors: Giri, Biswanath
Issue Date: Sep-2008
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: Explores newspaper reports regarding crimes developed out of superstitions and the motives behind those crimes. Newspaper reports were analysed to draw quantitative statistics of collected data. Shows that untested presuppositions not only challenge the development of society but also raise serious debate regarding the prevailing callousness in eradicating unwanted criminal activities under the shadow of superstition. Suggestions have been made to check unwanted deaths and other crimes over innocents with the spreading of scientific temperament and rationality among semiliterate. A model of effective information support system has also been incorporated in this paper, which can gradually eradicate the untested preconceptions.
