Recently, the Russian Orthodox movement “Forty Forty” called for the banning of Harry Potter books and films for promoting witchcraft and Satanism. The request was sent to the State Duma.
Alexander Sholokhov, the first deputy chairman of the Culture Committee of the State Duma, called it “too much”. According to him, it is worth looking for things that destroy the public consciousness in other places.
Such a search for witches can be carried out indefinitely. In fact, Satanism develops much more richly in other ways. And this is a children’s fairy tale that conquered the whole world. I think it’s really redundant. And it’s probably worth looking for more bogus things to destroy the public consciousness than “Harry Potter.”
Harry Potter is one of the most popular fantasy franchises created by the writer J.K. Rowling created. Eight films have been made based on his books, which have earned recognition and love from all over the world.
