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.

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”.

To:The Honorable Preside…

To:
The Honorable President of India
The Honorable Prime Minister of India
New Delhi, India

In response to the Orwellian steps taken by the present government to curb freedom of speech and expression, which is a Constitutional right of every Indian. This law or proposition of such a law violates the Constitutionally protected fundamental right of every citizen of India.

I vehemently oppose such a law on Constitutional grounds and in the name of my beloved country. These Orwellian laws are in violation of every citizens human right to feel free to express himself or herself, without fear of punishment or reprisals from the government.

Dissent is the very basis of a democracy. May I remind you that our late Prime Minister Mrs. Indira Gandhi felt the need to curb political dissent and she achieved the same by declaring a state of emergency in India. This declaration was an effective tool for her to stay in power.

The Indian Emergency of 26 June 1975 – 21 March 1977 which lasted for a 21 month period, when President Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed, upon advice by Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, declared a state of emergency under Article 352 of the Constitution of India, effectively bestowing on him the power to rule by decree, suspending elections and civil liberties. Mr. Alok Narayan, a well-known scholar of law, called it one of India’s “blackest hours”.

The 42nd Amendment, which brought about extensive changes to the letter and spirit of the Constitution of India, is one of the lasting legacies of the Emergency. One of the consequences of the Emergency era was that the Supreme Court of India ordered that, although the Constitution is subject to amendment (as used by Indira), changes that are ultra vires to its basic structure cannot be made by the Parliament of India.

Internet Censorship in India

Internet Censorship in Indian Democracy will ONLY stifle public debates on issues, it is a TOOL THAT HELPS THE ONES IN POWER TO KEEP THE POPULATION UNDER DARK & UNDER CONTROL.

Politicians DO NOT want to be questioned, DO NOT want to be challenged, DO NOT want to be held accountable, responsible and prosecuted. This is a DIRECT ASSAULT ON THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS OF EVERY INDIAN CITIZEN.

Unite, stay united for the cause, challenge the one’s in power, question authority & be vigilant. Democracies are manipulated, subverted and democratic values and freedoms vanish giving way to tyrannies, communism, authoritarian or totalitarian regimes. PLEASE SPREAD THE NEWS & FIGHT THROUGH PUBLIC INTEREST LITIGATION (PIL).
