Go to: living in the watchtower

This may be easy for me to say but I'll say it anyway. Tell your in-laws you do not want them to involve your child in their religious engagements, or give instructions on prayers/observances at home. They are likely to oppose such an arrangement but I think you can just say (as you already have it) - I respect you, not your ideas. Also you might want to let them know that you'd otherwise like your child to spend time with them. Assert your right to provide the environment you want for your own child.

Let's just hypothesize that Jindal is trying to start a rot in the system. Could he have started at a more vulnerable spot?

Go to: Leo Igwe—The Constant Fight Against Irrationality

"even though there are people who are rationally minded, they are not speaking out"

Now and then a few of these very people come out and do something about superstition and such, because of efforts made by people like Leo Igwe. Wish him all the success!

How easy it is for them! When their lies are exposed all they have to do to get attention is to claim hurt religious sentiments. They are getting away with it and apparently a country of 1.2 billion dares say nothing against it. The burden of proof that offence was meant lies with them.

Surely, a potent law against religious rabble rousers is necessary. But then it should come with equally potent safeguards against abuse like this.
