Speaker: Babu Gogineni
The secular nation of India has a long tradition of atheism, humanism, rationalism and skepticism. Nonetheless, India continues to struggle against religious superstition and persecution as social intolerance is rapidly growing. Meanwhile, the legal framework of blasphemy laws remains in place. Incitement to violence against Rationalists has become common place, and in the last few years four leading Rationalists have been gunned down. Babu is the founder of the South Asian Humanist Association and Science for Society. He is past-Secretary of the Rationalist Association of India and the Indian Humanist Association, as well as a Trustee of the Indian Renaissance Institute. In 1997, he was appointed Executive Director of the International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU). Read Event Details …
