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.

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