Maharashtra Andhashraddha Nirmoolan Samiti (MANS) is a voluntary organization struggling against all forms of superstitions for three decades, in the state of Maharashtra, India. Since inception, MANS has been actively pursuing its goal of spreading scientific temper through educational, cultural activities and even through public protests. Despite stiff challenges, we have exposed many miracle men and opposed, with corrective measures, exploitative, inhuman, rites and rituals. We have had few spectacular successes, the law against black magic and a law against social boycott ‘Caste Panch.ayats Judicial Council’ and its inhuman practices being one of them.

Despite the martyrdom of our versatile leader Dr. Narendra Dabholkar, we strived and continued, undeterred. To mark the completion of thirty years of activism, we have planned a three day meet in Mumbai from Friday, 9th August to Sunday, 11th August, 2019. We have organized an ‘International Conference on Rationalism for Development of Humanity’ on 9th August, 2019 followed by a State Level Convention of MANS on 10th and 11th August, 2019.
