Description:
Federation of Indian Rationalist Associations (FIRA) is an umbrella body of more than 75 rationalist, atheist, skeptic, secularist and science organisations in India. As an apex body of rationalist organisations, it is committed to the development of scientific temper and humanism in India.

The beginning

There are a number of rationalist, atheist, skeptic, and secularist groups active in various states and regions of India. It was to coordinate the activities of these organizations at the national level that as part of 10th Kerala State Conference of Kerala Yukthivadi Sangham, a meeting of activists from various parts of India was convened at Trivandrum, Kerala. The meeting decided to launch a federation of all the rationalist and skeptic associations active in India. As a result, the Federation of Indian Rationalist Associations was launched on February 7, 1997 at Palakkad, Kerala. Basava Premanand of Indian CSICOP, Tamil Nadu was the founder-convener of the Federation.

U.Kalanathan of Kerala Yukthivadi Sangham was elected as the patron of the Association at the 7th National Conference held at Chennai on 26 & 27 December 2009. The conference reelected Prof Narendra Nayak of Dakshina Kannada Rationalist Association, Karnataka as the national president of the association and R.G.Rao of Goa Science Forum as its General Secretary.
