  1. A humankind is going to be executed on the plea that she does not believe in God. She is an atheist! It is absolutely the personal right of any person to follow & belive in God or not. Will the state control & decide whether a person will believe in God or not? Some countries even today have failed to emancipate themselves from the ‘Dark Age’ dogma’!
