Atheism existed in India before anywhere else on earth. Today also there are many prominent figures in India who are atheists. Why don't they come forward as atheists and help promote atheism in Indai? Is it because of general apathy for which we Indians are famous? Is it because they view atheism is purely personal belief?
If this is the case of prominent figures, that of the ordinary atheists also does not seem to different. They are also absolutely apathetic to the cause of atheism. This raises one question. Will atheism progress in India?
