Help transform India – Fight for your Constitutional rights

Wake Up India

Fight for your Constitutional rights, because your Government wants you to be illiterate & subservient

While the majority of India‘s population lives in abject poverty & faces severe malnutrition, shortage of food, water, clothing, low income housingrunning water, electricity, healthcare & education, which forces millions of poverty stricken parents to take desperate measures such as having their 5 & 6 year old children to work as bonded laborers (slaves) in the most appalling conditions and without adequate food, education, shelter or sanitary conditions.

Instead of declaring WAR on the very problems that keep India in absolute mindbogglingly poverty.

The Government of India (GOI) has decided to declare WAR on its citizens by undermining their intelligence and attacking their Constitutional rights.

The Government of India and the selected (not elected) criminals in the Indian parliament in New Delhi cannot stomach the fact that dissent, and a more outspoken citizenry demanding their legal rights, enforcement of laws, equality, due process, accountability and civility from its government (Saarkar) are gathering momentum.

It is only a matter of time before UNITED CITIZENS OF INDIA (Hindus, Muslims, SikhsJains, Christians, Jews and many more) are more likely to bring law and order, civility, accountability and respect to the nation and to its democratic institutions.

A civil revolt of Himalayan proportions is inevitable if Indians get more legal rights, knowledge from the Internet, education and awareness of their region and the world in which they live in. This is the BIGGEST threat to the criminal politicians who want to keep the masses under their thumb.

Curbing free speech, expression and general knowledge only helps the criminal politicians to solidify their positions of power.

WE will not let this happen.

Dear Friends and critics

Let’s help Mr. Anna Hazare and his team by showing our support and through monetary contribution.

My response to the Indian Government’s steps to censor freedom of speech.

MY PLEDGE 

 Author ~ https://thelargestdemocracy.wordpress.com/

I am compelled to say “Free speech, is a fundamental human right and I shall have it and exercise it whenever and wherever I feel do so at any and all cost. Even if it brings death to me”.

“Free speech, is a fundamental human right and I shall have it and exercise it whenever and  wherever,

I please to do so. 

I will NOT adhere to any law that infringes upon my Constitutional right to question any authority or those who hold higher offices, this I shall continue to do so as a citizen of India at any and all cost.

No force on earth can stop me from speaking my mind, I shall continue to speak against the injustices perpetrated by the Indian Government on all Indians. Whether they may be Hindus, Muslims, Jews, Bahai, Zoroastrians, atheist, agnostic or of any caste, denomination, creed or color. For, I firmly believe in the greatest religion called HUMANITY.

No force on earth can stop me from questioning or speaking against the unjust laws or the social injustices that I and many others experience in India on a daily basis.

I am free from the shackles of intimidation and death. May God grant me HIS wisdom and strength to fight this battle against wolves in sheep clothing”.
