But we cannot ban them. Astrology should be allowed to exist but at the same time it is essential to see that no one is exploited. Banning astrology might affect the feelings of people,” he saidChairman of state legislative council DH Shankaramurthy, registrar of Karnataka Sanskrit University Dr Sidde Gowda, junior swamiji of Pejavar Math Sri Vishwaprasannateertha Swamiji, and scholars from Karnataka Sanskrit University were present during the occasion.
