Rationalists’ Association


The Science and Rationalists’ Association of India (name of the organization in Bengali  is “Bharatiya Bigyan O Yuktibadi Samiti) established on 1st March  1985, our organization is made up of like minded people coming from different professions. We are not affiliated to any political party .

Our aim is to eradicate superstition and blind faith, which  include religious fanaticism , astrology , caste-system, spiritualism  and numerous other obscurantist beliefs.

Our view is that rational way of thinking shall be spread among the people as against spiritual or religious teachings, and that alone can bring about social change.
