Vidya Bhushan Rawat

Working as a full time human rights defender. Have made several documentries and also written books on the issues of human rights, Dalits, women and minorities. Though, I am a humanist and defend the right of an individual to be religious, However, I firmly believe that there is nothing like ’God’s Word’ or final truth. All God’s words can be challenged. We defend the rights of dissenters. Democracy can only flourish when people respect dissent and resolve their issues through dialogue. I personally feel that religious laws cannot override secular laws of a nation and that society has to accept wide diversity across the world. However, parochialism in the name of diversity should not be supported at all.
