Subject: Please help to defend an Indian rationalist from false accusations
Date: June 8th 2012
The urgent message below is based upon an email I received from Caspar Melville, editor of New Humanist. Whether you are religious or not, I hope you agree that Sanal Edamaruku should be protected from harassment by the Mumbai authorities. You can read more about the background to the case here:
Please sign the petition.
Sanal Edamaruku, the President of the Indian Rationalist Association, is facing arrest for exposing a fraudulent âmiracleâ in a Catholic Church - the Archdiocese of Mumbai have made the complaint and Indian law allows him to be arrested even without a warrant. Heâs been denied âanticipatory bailâ so might end up in jail for a long time pending resolution. He is currently staying away from home and office, and getting daily calls to give himself up. Heâs not worried about the substance of the complaint, which is fatuous and should be struck down by any court, but he is worried that he will have to spend a long time in jail. The single most important thing for him at the moment is international support and pressure from the outside.
We have created an online petition- calling on the Archdiocese of Bombay to withdraw their complaint. You can read and sign this petition here:
and please share it with your networks - facebook, email, websites etc..
