There have been strong attacks against Astrology and objections to it being described as Science in some sections of the Scientific fraternity following the University Grants Commission's February 2001 proposal to introduce astrology in the Universities. The Criticism has done Little to hurt astrology and its case but has exposed the bias and ignorance behind these attacks. Most of the times, the arguments against astrology appear to be based on, not what astrology is but what its critics assume it to be. Such assumption is invariably based on bias, prejudice, misinformation and of course, ignorance. In this book, the author exposes the hollowness and invalidity of such attacks. It is an unfortunate reflection on the degree of Prejudice against astrology that even crude lies have been made a part of the anti-astrology campaign. She has brought to light certain unpalatable and unpleasant facts concerning such concoctions.Printed Pages: 85.
