Indian Atheists Celebrate ‘Hug An Atheist Day’

Nirmukta, an organization promoting freethought in India, is celebratingHug an Atheist Day” today with all of the other atheist groups in the country:

“A lot of people still think atheists lack morals and have to be shunned or silenced. So we thought it would be a good idea to tell the world that we are humans like them and the only difference would be that we believe in science and not a supernatural being,” says Dolly Koshy, who is part of Nirmukta, an atheist group organising the event.

This is the first event of its kind in India, though Hug An Atheist Day has been loosely celebrated in the U.S. on the first Friday in June for the past four years.
