Re: [IAC#RG] PRESS RELEASE­­: publication by India Against Corruption


So you want only normal / bland / safe / conventional views to exist. In your cloistered world the term "dissident" ought not to exist ?

Let us all collectively forget that Galileo held extremist views. So did Martin Luther, Jai Prakash Narain and Adolf Hitler.

In the warped "controlled" world of Wikipedia Jawaharlal Nehru (?) is one of only 4 "dissidents" India had.

I suppose we should let only Arundhati Roy or Madhu Kishwar or Ranjana Kumari speak on behalf of Indian women - because these are the only faces we see jabbering away on NDTV.

SIFF's theme is simple - Gender specific laws like Domestic Violence Act and IPC 498A are being abused and should either be repealed or made gender neutral.

This is now substantially also IAC's position (arrived at after much internal debate and discussion) as IAC conveyed to the Justice Verma Committee. A copy of IAC's submission can be accessed at IAC's website.

I had similar opinion as Vidyut on the piece from Mr Sarkar. I am not getting into details of what he has put forth, as Vidyut has already done so.

To even think of putting the problems women face with those of men is audacious, to say the least.

We must not encourage extremist views, even if we propagate freedom of press.
