I never imagned Wiccans in Hogwarts: J K Rowling

J K Rowling said the 'Harry Potter' school Hogwarts would have been home to all kinds of students.

Los Angeles: Author J K Rowling said the 'Harry Potter' school Hogwarts would have been home to all kinds of students.

The 49-year-old author addressed the issue of why there were no Jewish students at the school in her books during a Twitter session, reported People magazine. She explained that this was incorrect, that Anthony Goldstein, a Ravenclaw pupil, was in fact a Jewish wizard. The 'Harry Potter' series author took to Twitter to set

the record straight.

"If Harry Potter taught us anything it's that no one should live in a closet," she tweeted along with a picture. She added that the only people she didn't imagine at

Hogwarts were 'Wiccans' and also explained the reason behind it. "To everyone asking whether their religion/ belief/ non-belief system is represented at Hogwarts: the only people I never imagined there are Wiccans. "It's a different concept of magic to the one laid out in the books, so I don't really see how they can co-exist,"

Rowling said.

Rowling has released new writings on the Pottermore website, including a back story to Dolores Umbridge and new stories concerning Draco Malfoy for the Christmas event, which started on December 12.
