International Humanists’ Day: 14th Anniversary September 11, 2007

HUMANISTS’ ASSOCIATION was born on September 11, 1993. Even after 14 long years the relevance of a secular haman society is increasing. In the wake of the demolition of Babri Masjid we felt the need to stress on the new religion ‘HUMANISM’ and our organization was born; and on 10th December, the same year 54 of us officially embraced ‘Humanism’ as our religion.  Eight years back on the same day the world saw the biggest act of ‘terrorism’ in America that killed thousands of innocent people.

We feel the spread of Humanism as a creed is the answer to all acts of violence, of terrorism, of exploitation, and of corruption in this world. So, friends– spread the message and be united.

Mother Teresa and Sainthood September 6, 2007

We the Rationalists and Humanists of India want to clear our stand regarding Mother Teresa and her proposed sainthood. In the wake of the recent discovery of Teresa’s letters proclaiming her spiritual doubts we feel that our views have a greater relevance at the moment. 

Mother’s was strong personality combined with deep compassion and an immense ability to work with singular determination. She justly got the Nobel Peace Prize and we express our respect for her.


She worked for the spread of Christianity under the guidance of Vatican; if Vatican decides to confer ‘sainthood’ to her, we should have nothing to say. But, the criterion required for formally calling her a ‘saint’ calls for ‘miracles’ attributed to her. In the name of a great worker if we proclaim and establish the occurrence of miracles in this 21st century, it would be ethically wrong.

 We are fighting for the last more than 20 years for the spread of scientific spirit and rational thought process. We have seen that belief in ‘miracles’ and supernatural powers do immense harm to people. We have investigated into the ‘miracle cure’ of Monica Besra of West Bengal in 2003 claimed by Missionaries of Charity and found it baseless. Monica was treated in Balurghat Hospital and was under medication for 9 long months. She was not cured by Mother’s picture. This false propaganda was a criminal act (The Drugs and Cosmetics Act, 1940), seriously damaging to our society. 

Hence, our request to the honorable Pope is to desist from this farce of ‘sainthood’ and stop spreading false stories of magic cure which would only mislead our poor common people.
