From 10 schools in Dubai to 5 balwadis in Mumbai. From schools for the mentally and physically challenged. From small village schools to city schools. From J&K to Kerala to Kolkatta to HP.
They read out the Fundamental Duties from the constitution
as part of the Fight-Back, No More Terrorism Republic Day initiative.
Fight-Back, No more Terrorism.
A country plagued by parochialism, regionalism, religion, poverty, inequality and political double-speak is an ideal breeding ground for terrorism. Not only do we incubate our own disenchanted youth who become easy pickings for radicals but we play tag with seriously dangerous ideas like regionalism, language parochialism and religion. From a country united in common belief on the 15th of August,1947,
we have sunk to a country divided by belief, caste, and language.
And yet, we have hugely positive forces working amongst us, forces of healing, peace and solidity.
Join us as we try and strengthen India, firm ourselves up, heal and remember 1947. Its time to say no to terrorism, by understanding why it occurs, by working at its roots and giving new ways living a chance.
