We call on the Catholic Archdiocese of Bombay to encourage the withdrawal of complaints against Indian Rationalist Sanal Edamaruku
Please join the Rationalist Association (UK) in condemning the misuse of Indian law by several Catholic organisations to silence a campaigner against superstition. In March 2012, following his exposure of a supposed miracle at a Catholic Church in Mumbai as nothing more than the result of a leak, a complaint was lodged against Sanal Edamaruku by local Catholic organisations with the Mumbai police, who are now able to arrest him. He has been denied 'anticipatory' bail which means if arrested he faces a long term in prison merely for explaining the science behind an apparent mystery.
richard dawkins "He exposed a fraudulent miracle. Since when has the unmasking of a fraud been 'offensive'?"
pz myers ""Harassing Sanal Edamaruku for exposing the truth is an outrage against reason and justice.""
john opie ""I am signing this petition because a person exposing any sort of fraud should not be hounded or have the fear of prosecution forced upon him.""
david wonfor "The sleep of reason produces monsters."
noel doyle "Exposing opportunist religious propaganda should never be a reason for a human being to be imprisoned or punished in any way for. "
