IHEU’s Executive Director, Babu Gogineni, took part in a BBC World Service programme on Saturday 18 September. The BBC programme, The Big Question, is broadcast throughout the world.

You can listen to a recording of the programme and read more about it at [url=http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/programmes/big_question.shtml]http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/programmes/big_question.shtml[/url].

As the BBC web site says, Babu Gogineni does not believe in God, so cannot conceive of turning to religion to find the answer to the big questions in life. For him, the impulse to do good is part of human nature, and it has nothing to do with religion. He believes humans have a common moral decency and do not need religion to be good. “Not all religions have morals. Not all morals are religious.”
