How safe is Bangalore for Women? FEARLESS KARNATAKA to promote safety and reclaim public spaces.

Bangalore was known as a tolerant city, where women can walk safely.

In the past few days many women were attacked and insulted on the streets of Bangalore – for speaking in English, for wearing  jeans/ sleeveless shirts. The moral policing has spread from Mangalore to Bangalore. Some self-appointed custodians of morality want to dectate what we should do and what we should not.

In Mangalore, they attacked unmarried couples belonging to different religions, they even attacked students for speaking with classmates (same gender) of different religions.  They devided the society on religious lines. They attacked people for going to pubs. They destroyed peace and harmony in Mangalore. They forced people to live under constant fear. These fundamentalists have the active support of the present state government, who are known for spreading hate. They want to turn Karnataka into another Gujarat.

Their next target is Bangalore. They want to destroy the peaceful, tolerant and diverse nature of  Bangalore. They want to enforce their moral codes through intimidation and violence.

Many individuals and groups, who want to resist this moral policing have come together as FEARLESS KARNATAKA, to defend the freedom and rights guaranteed by our constitution.

Join the protest march to the office of Dr. Ajai Kumar Singh, DG & IGP (Karnataka), on March 7, 2009.
