Challengers of the book
Many people opposed Harry potter.
Religious organizations challenged the book
the most. Religious people challenged the book due to it’s focus on magic and wizardry, which went against many beliefs of certain religions.
The Christians opposition to the book is
understandable. Some people don’t want their children to be influenced by things of that nature. I am sure J.K. Rowling meant no harm, while writing the story. The Christians nor J.K. Rowling are at fault.
