The world of Harry Potter is full of imagination and magic where characters are interlinked with some power of magic. There is a conflict between witchcraft and good magic for their existence. The series of novels reflect the true picture of the present political and social conditions where the powerless are suppressed politically, socially and economically by the powerful people. The aim of present research paper is to explore various issues related to power in the world of Harry Potter. The issue of power is approached mainly through Foucaultian concept of power. According to Foucault, power is something that is exercised: “There would be no power if it were not exercised by agents”, and “Power is exercised by individuals or groups of individuals”.
