“Avada Kedavra!”: ‘Harry Potter books’ BANNED in a Catholic School.


One of the most successful works by J.K. Rowling, Happy Potter series, is still a bestseller among the fiction lovers. It includes all the kind of character that one would love to hear about. Apart from the books, there are movies made based on the writings of Harry Potter, which are also in the list of hits in the field of film. The plot revolves around the life of Harry Potter and witches. It has got magical moments in the stories about evil and good spirits. Being in the most beloved books, Harry Potter has also been added into the syllabus of many institutions and is furthermore gaining popularity as a syllabus novel. However, unlike the trend, a catholic school removed the Harry Potter series from its library. They warned the readers that the book amounts to risk conjuring evil spirits.

Rev. Dan Reehil, a pastor at the St. Edward Catholic School in Nashville, has turned to several exorcists for advice regarding the Harry Potter books. He was worried about the lesson that the students would learn from the Harry Potter books. He expressed his point of views to the faculty members on Wednesday. He said that the books represent magic to be evil and good, but the point is that it is not valid, while it is just a clever deception. However, the curses and the spells that are used in the books are actual curses and spells. Moreover, if a human being reads them, there are always chances for the risk of conjuring evil spirits into the presence of the person reading the text.

It is not the very first time that the books of Harry Potter have been kicked off from the campuses of the school. The Satanism and devil worship has died in recent years.
