Humanists at Risk: Action Report 2020

The Humanists at Risk: Action Report 2020 exposes a lack of separation between state and religion, as well as an array of tactics used against humanists, atheists and non-religious people in Colombia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nigeria, Pakistan, the Philippines, and Sri Lanka to limit their rights to freedom of thought, conscience, and religion or the right to freedom of expression, association and assembly, including:

  • Legal provisions, such as ‘blasphemy’, ‘apostasy’ and other laws restricting so called ‘religious insult’;
  • Impunity for attacks and killings;
  • The privileging of one or some religions by the state, sometimes leading to discrimination in terms of access to public services or positions;
  • Bullying, discrimination, ostracism and social isolation.

Humanists and atheists face intimidation, threats, arrest and prosecution, and even death, for sharing their views on social media. For some, while challenging legislation is important in the long-term, their most immediate concern is simply achieving recognition and respect.
