Indian Freethought On The Move

The Indian Freethought Community is getting busy organizing and building the Freethought movement in India.

At the forefront of this movement is a group called Nirmukta, many of whom are members on various atheist sites like Atheist Nexus, alt.atheism, Atheism versus Christianity (theism), etc.

One member has actively organized campaigns to go into the countryside and teach the villagers science in order to educate them on superstitious beliefs and the damage they do.

They've started a website and Forum which some of you might be interested in reading or joining.

I don't think there's any requirement that you be Indian to join the Forums.

They are located here:



One of the Nirmukta articles was picked up and Tweeted by Richard Dawkins recently.

And posted on

India is a land entrenched in superstitious belief but it is also a land which gave rise to the earliest known atheistic, materialist, naturalist and secular belief system known to humanity, Carvaka.

Best wishes to the Indian Atheists and may they enjoy the same successes that have occurred with other atheistic groups around the world in recent years.
