Why I Am An Atheist By Bhagat Singh Oct 1930 A new question has cropped up Is it due to vanity that I do not believe in the existence of an omnipotent omnipresent and omniscient God I had never imagined that I would ever have to confront such a question But conversation with some friends has given me a hint that certain of my friends if I am not claiming too much in thinking them to be so-are inclined to conclude from the brief contact they have had with me that it was too much on my part to deny the existence of God and that there was a certain amount of vanity that actuated my disbelief Well the problem is a serious one I do not boast to be quite above these human traits I am a man and nothing more None can claim to be more I also have this weakness in me Vanity does form a part of my nature Amongst my comrades I was called an autocrat Even my friend Mr BK Dutt sometimes called me so On certain occasions I was decried as a despot Some friends do complain and very seriously too that I involuntarily thrust my opinions upon others and get my proposals accepted That this is true up to a certain extent I do not deny This may amount to egotism There is vanity in me in as much as our cult as opposed to other popular creeds is concerned But that is not personal It may be it is only legitimate pride in our cult and does not amount to vanity Vanity or to be more precise Ahankar is the excess of undue pride in ones self Whether it is such an undue pride that has led me to atheism or whether it is after very careful study of the subject and after much consideration that I have come to disbelieve in
