The Atheism Campaign
The British Humanist Association with support from Prof. Richard Dawkins has started a bus campaign promoting atheism. Devised by comedy writer Ariane Sherine, these posters will be seen across 200 buses in London and 600 more across England, Scotland and Wales.
Ariane Sherine says she was inspired to seek donations after objecting to a set of Christian advertisements on a bus. These donations were later used to create this campaign which is now seen all over Britain.
But the question on my mind is this: How would we as a nation react to a campaign like this? Especially, when religion in India has become a burning issue in the society. Rather than it being just a matter of faith.
