STOP Moral Policing. Liberty For All.

There comes a time
When we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one.
There are people dying
And it's time to lend a hand to life,
The greatest gift of all

We can't go on
Pretending day by day
That someone, somewhere will soon make a change

We are all a part of
God's great big family
And the truth, you know love is all we need

We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives

It's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me

For a very long time, I have been a mute spectator to the horror that continues to unfold in front of us. But I realized that keeping quiet about it probably gives encouragement to the defaulters.
So here it is today - a petition to the President of India.
Do go over it and please,please sign it.
I dont know if it`s going to be of any help. But that uncertainty cannot prevent us from NOT voicing our opinions and dissent.
Staying so far away from home, this is the least we can do.

I will happily sign the petition because I abhor and detest the self titled moral police. I as a believer am ashamed at these acts and by these people who do no accept or understand my faith and mailgn it.

I also have my two cents on what and how we define Liberty/Freedom call it what u may and will be writing about it in my blog as coherently as possible. ( My brain is a muddy puddle..too many randome thoughts)

You have me scratching my head, Piper.

I know so little about current events in India that I have no background information about the activities and conditions of which you write. Is there a website where I might learn more?

Mamma mia! Me a mamma? said...

First time here, Piper and I'm so glad I came! Great petition! Have signed it and will definitely post this link on my blog! Great job!

Piper .. said...

Chrysalis: Thanks my friend. And I shall be waiting for the blog!

Fram: hmm..dont knnow where to begin. I can send you newspaper clips, but I guess its better for me to email you. I could do with some advice as well. Thank you for the interest. It means a lot to me.

M4: Thanks a lot! and yes, do put it up on your blog. It`ll help. Imagine the horror! We all need to do our bit.

I signed it after seeing your link at some other blog.

I don't know how effective its going to be but high time all of us stand against such moral polices of our culture. The culture which they have no clue about.

Piper .. said...

Sukanya: Thank you

Solilo: Hey thanks for dropping a line. It means a lot to me :) Infact I have my own doubts about the petition thing. But that`s about all that I could contribute to the cause, sitting here so far away from home :(

Sunshine said...

I signed up as well tho i agree with Solilo...i don't know how much of an effect is this going to have on anything...when have higher authorities listened when they were supposed to?

The violent acts by these moral policmen actually reflects the pervertion of thier own minds as well the ignorance about the true Indian culture.

Want to educate these perverts about the true ancient Indian cultur take them to the ancient heritage sites at Konark, Khajurao, or even Jagan Nath Puri and tell them to have a look at the stone idols embelishing the walls there.

Sunshine, Chandni, Deeps, Just call me A, Balvinder Singh :
Thanks Guys! I was beginning to lose hope :) I dont know if this is an effective means. But what other option is there for us, who sit so far away from home? I couldnt think of any other way to protest!

Piper, I already signed as you know. Now I have put up a link on my blog too among others.

Piper .. said...

Solilo: Thank you so much, my friend :)

Just call me 'A' said...

hey I saw your comment on Chandni blog about the email ID to send chaddi pictures. you can send the pictures to That's the email ID one of the members gave me when i left a comment in their blog.

Mystic Margarita said...

Signed! Hop over to my place for my view on the pink chaddi campaign -

Piper .. said...

Mystic: I did :) see my comment

Monika said...

piper great initiative, have signed it but tell do these petitions ever achieve anything

i have signed so many of them on varios topics but nothing happened...

Came over from Phoenix and Roop, and glad I did. Have signed the petition too.Hope something positive comes out of all this!
Keep writing!

Piper .. said...

Monika: yup, I know. I`m beginning to get a lil disheartened myself. Esp since the President herself is one of the same league we`re fighting against. But then again, when I think of it - I cant attend the protest at Delhi(am here in the US) and I`m not sure sending pink undies will really do the trick, though I am pretty excited about the campaign. So If I want to do my bit, this seems to be the only option. I have done my homework and will ensure that the petition reaches the proper authorities. I can do my bit. That`s the point really. We cant just sit quiet, expecting others to bring about change, can we? :)
Thanks for supporting the cause.

Writerzblock: :) Thanks for dropping a line and welcome to my blog! I hope too, that there`s some change for the better. Whether its by a petition, a pink chaddi campaign or a peaceful protest, I do hope this makes a difference!
