a 65 year old lady tortured as witch in village.

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                                    Hurhura is a  remote village in District Bankura of West Bengal. Only 50 people live in this tribal village. As usual there is no electricity and primary school till this days. 2nd week of August 2014, a 65 year old woman was mentally and physically tortured after being accused as witch by the villagers.

The members of our organisation "Bharatiya Bigyan O Yuktibadi Samiti" (Science and Rationalists' Association of India) met the villagers and tried to convince the villagers. On 17th August, we organised an anti-superstition camp in the play ground of the village.

BIPLAB DAS, I am so very impressed with your work. Look at all those children with bright eyes listening to what you have to say. The Young people, just starting out as adults, will carry on the message you give them. I hope the elders listening intently. 

How do you feel about progress in ending witch burnings and other atrocities? Do you see change in individuals and communities? Oh! You face challenges I can only imagine. Please keep us informed.

I just now looked at your photos and commentary about the torture of an old woman. I am impressed. You have a great team working and I give you high praise! I see there is a small child observing your discussion. 

Science and Rationalists' Association of India deserves acknowledgement from atheists worldwide. How did the public respond to your anti-superstition camp?

Michael, we just can't say the word, "superstition" too often. It is outrageous what religious get away with because it is a RELIGION. Well, they are just going to have to get over it.
