Witchcraft has been one of the most controversial issues in the West. Abrahamic religions such as Judaism, Christianity & Islam consider it a sin against God but what does Hinduism say about it? Can a Hindu indulge in sorcery?
Also certain Wiccans (adherents of the Wicca religion, a Western pagan tradition that developed in the twentieth century that involves the practice of witchcraft) perform spellwork using the deities of various ancient religions including Hinduism (Lord Ganesha and Goddess Kali are the most used deities from Hinduism in Wicca). Is this practice legitimate?
Update: Seeing some of the comments, I wish to clarify Wicca is not black magick. In the Wiccan Rede, it is stated:
An it harm none, do what thou wilt'' (''Do what you will, so long as it harms none'').
