Passport for my daughter with mother´s name
I am a single parent. My Husband abandoned my daughter and me when she was born just because she was a girl. He never looked back and doesn’t even care whether we’re dead or alive. Recently, I applied for the passport of my daughter. My daughter doesn’t want her father’s name on the document. Our application was denied and we were told that both names are required. My daughter did her schooling with my name only. Her voter ID card, Aadhar card and bank account have my name. Why was only the passport denied? My daughter and I were forced to go through mental agony and torture. We tried to convince the passport officer, wrote letters, met senior officers but our request was denied. In the end we were forced to include his name. Every time my daughter looks at her Passport, she sees the name of a person who hurt her, who abandoned her. Single fathers and mothers face several hardships. Often there is a traumatic story behind the reason we are single. We have to work extra-hard to support our children and be there for them. The judiciary has given progressive judgments that say that the Father’s name is not required. My humble request is for the Prime Minister and the Ministry of Home Affairs to look into this matter and help single parents - fathers and mothers, so that they don’t have to go through this agony.
.@SushmaSwaraj @MEAQuery @passportsevamea: Help me get a passport for my minor son
Dear Madam, After a lot of failed attempts since past 3 years consistently; I have decided to write this petition in order to get permission granted to acquire a passport for my son. I am a single parent of a 10 year old boy. I was married to an abusive man who did not spare me even during my pregnancy. I some how managed to come back to my parents home after 3 months while pregnant with my unborn child and firmly opted not to go to that man ever again. To which he retaliated by filing for the custody of my baby and harassed me for 6 years. Despite all his slanders and attempts to harass me I won the case since I was abused and also because my ex had not given any child support, maintenance or alimony. The man I was married to lives in Dubai currently. Its been 4 years now, he has not gained access to visit my son. Now he is married for the 3rd time and has a family of his own. He has no contact with my son what so ever, nor does he make any effort to visit him. Kindly consider my petition to help me get a passport for my son, it would mean a lot to the little one. Thank You.
Help my disabled daughters get passports
For 40 years we have been taking care of our disabled daughters. I am 70 and my husband is 75. We don’t know how much longer we can take care of them. My younger daughter R. Sarvani is 90% disabled and cannot move. The elder daughter R. Gayathridevi is 72% disabled, when she walks, she often slips and falls and needs constant assistance. Our sons are settled in the US and Canada. They would like to take care of their sisters when we cannot. Unfortunately we have not been able to apply for a passport due to my daughters’ severe physical disabilities.. The nearest Passport Seva Kendra is 110 km away from our residence and my daughters have to be personally present in order to apply. Travelling by bus or train is very hard for them. Due to our old age, my husband and me are also not able to help them travel. It is our humble and earnest appeal to Smt Sushma Swaraj and the Ministry of External Affairs to help us get passports for our daughters without insisting their physical presence at Passport Seva Centre distantly located. I have faith that Smt Sushma Swaraj and the Ministry of External Affairs will listen to our request and help us get passports. Sign our petition and help us get the passports for our daughters. - Subbalakshmi & RS Rallapalli
Indian Nationals who die abroad, their mortal remains to be carried back to India for free
Mortal remains of Indian Nationals who die outside India should be bought back to India by Indian carriers, free of charge. (All airlines operating from India or atleast the National Carriers.) Currently the charge to send a dead body from the UAE to India is AED 18 per Kilo. Ticket cost to send a dead body is more than five times the regular fare. Usually if the relatives of the dead do not have funds then the Indian Community raises the required funds to send the body back to India. However, chances are that there could be a delay if necessary funds are not arranged on time. There is a large number of Indian labor force working in the Middle East region. These people do not have any relatives in the country they work and cannot afford a regular airline ticket. God forbid if anyone die's, then the mortal remains are sent to India, subject to collection of funds from company mates or Indian Community. This is an appeal to all Indians to come sign this petition to help families who have lost their loved one. Together we can made a difference
Support for Kartarpur Sahib Corridor
Sikhs sentiments are strongly attached with the long standing demand of Kartarpur Sahib Langa (Corridor) where direct access has to provide to historic Kartarpur Sahib Gurudwara without visa.This is place where Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the Guardian of Humanity, had spent last 18 years of his life and attained salvation. Kartarpur Sahib is situated within Pakistan border with 3-4 KM distance from Dera Baba Nanak,India. Sikhs have emotional involvement with this place but borders have separated humans. Since Pakistani Government has taken step forward and decided to give their approval now we need consent from Indian Prime Minister Narender Modi Ji. Please sign this petition and show your support for this noble cause. This support letter would be sent to Honorable Prime Minister of India. Thanking you in anticipation.
Officially Declare Pakistan as a Terrorist State
Ever since the birth of Pakistan, it has been creating a mess for all of its neighboring countries; be it Afghanistan, Iran or most importantly India. A country that can't feed its own people due to lack of funds but always has money for Nuclear warheads and sponsoring terrorism. A country where UN-designated terrorist lives lavishly and even try to fight elections. A country which took billions of dollars from the United States to counter Terrorism but was a safe haven for the worlds most wanted terrorist as he was shielded by their own army. A country that shields worlds well-known, terrorists ... A country that is not safe for its citizens but its a heaven for Terrorists. Its high time we realize the facts and stop doing the mistakes we have been doing for over 70 years. India foolishly offered Pakistan the status of Most Favored Nation for over 20+ years, while in return we were backstabbed on multiple occasions. America offered Pakistan a huge amount of money and weapons to counter Terrorism but instead, they shielded worlds most wanted, terrorists. We need to take Actions, and the Action Begins here. I request the Indian and American Governments along with the UN and UNSC to take these major steps. Terrorism has to end. Sign this petition and share it with your friends and families to make the world a safer place.
We Ask General Vk to help as and ask UN Security Cancel - external security unit- to put "
We Ask General Vk to help as and ask UN Security Cancel - external security unit- to put "Rapid Support Forces militia" and his leaders at the terrorit organizations list that they are responsible for crimes in Darfur and the recent massacre in Khartoum against a peaceful sit-in. On June 3, 2019, the Rapid Support Forces militia used brutal force, against the peaceful sit-in that's the main goal was to call for a democratic and civil led government in Sudan, initial reports by news outlets mentioned that 100 protestors killed, bodies found on Nile river , and women were raped by this militia. The Rapid Support Forces is a rebrand name for the “ janjaweed militia”, that is well known for the crimes it committed in Darfur, International rights organizations issued several reports about these crimes, such as “ men with no mercy” report by human rights watch. The militia has recruited children to become solidres in yemen war. The leader of this militia, mohamed hamdan hemeti, has been put on the “ Partial list of individuals who should be investigated by the ICC” So we ask security cancel to take this action and put Mohammed Hamdan Daglo and his militias as terrorist organization.
Women in the Indian Armed Forces
Giving voice to a million other female aspirants, with this petition I'd like to draw your attention towards the huge difference in vacancies of men and women in the Indian armed forces. The Indian Air Force merit list was issued recently along with the merit of Indian Coast guard, women:men intake ratio being 1:4 and 1:6 (as usual) and the same is the case with Army and Navy. On the other hand cut off for women candidates in army technical entry is 80% and 50% for men of the same branch, therefore female candidates are not even allowed to appear for the interviews. Hence, the percentage of women in the armed forces remains less than 15%. If Permanent commission is being granted solely to men, can't Short Service Commission be for women candidates only? Or issue a general merit for both so as to eradicate all the differences and biases, so the deserving gets in despite the gender? Can equality exist on ground and not just in the heads of the people? Real opportunities need to be created and not just false hopes since ladies are getting recommended from all the stages as men and yet, the system being such, unfortunately, they are off the merit wherein male candidates with even lesser marks are in due to higher number of vacancies. With your voices echoing mine, I believe it would be easier to urge the government to not oppress women in the sector that is still the most trusted and unbiased, and revise the number of vacancies in the Indian Armed Forces, if the motive really lies in empowering women.
Fight Against Injustice- Stand With Ritu Jaiswal
In a series of unprecedented events- the iron lady of our Bihar who lately gained immense recognition for leaving behind the fine luxuries of city life and decided to dedicate her life towards the upliftment of Singhwahini Panchayat, Sitamarhi Bihar- Ritu Jaiswal (Mukhiya) has been wrongly accused of the Prevention of Atrocities SC/ST Act. Considering the unfairly stringent provisions which follow under the law- she along with her team will be facing imprisonment or legal custody very soon. Ritu Jaiswal is widely recognised for the extra ordinary work she has done towards the betterment of Singhwahini Panchayat. Be it from bringing electricity to the place back in 2016 to declaring the entire Panchayat Open Defecation Free in the same year. We present this news with the utmost sadness that such selflessness and dedication towards social betterment is met unfairly. The accusations are briefly wrong and serve as a tool towards the benefit of corrupt local politicians and goons. Here’s a series of events which took place. RItu Jaiswal received a complaint for harassment against a local goon- Virendra Ram (who’s infamous for drug peddling and Sand Trafficking). When she arrived at the spot along with her team- she was mobbed and threatened with unlicensed arms and weapons. The notorious goon along with his accomplices threatened her to leave the spot immediately stating that otherwise he will (taking advantage of his caste) book her under the SC/ST or Dalit Act. After suppressing the matter, Ritu had to flee the place considering the threat to her life. Later on, the goons proceeded to the local Dalit Station and accused her of violating the status of Dalits. The accusation under SC/ST act leads to direct arrest i.e. without any substantial evidence. Hence, it proves to be a sure shot method to defame any individual without considering the seriousness of their offence. Ritu’s work clearly suggest that her efforts are for the poor and un-prejudiced. Now be it for the Dalits or General. She believes in equality and her work clearly glorifies the same. She’s highly vocal about the Rights for Minorities and believes that their upliftment can be brought through working on Education and Job Opportunities rather than creating such laws which only proceed to create more unequality and tension in the society. Though we never present our statistics based on caste or religion, such events force us to do so. Therefore- last year she has educated over 500 students from minorities, has planted over 53 solar water pumps, constructed over 2000 toilets, skill training and job opportunites for over 20 girls. As a society, it’s our core responsibility that we raise our voices against such injustice and show our support to people who work on ground level and depict an infinite sense of selflessness and hope.
We desperately need doctors and a hospital in Varahi, Gujarat, India
Recently my mother visited Varahi which is a town near Radhanpur, Gujarat died because of Cardiac Arrest. She did not get proper medical assistance as there was no proper hospital in Varahi. Thousands of tourists visit Charanka Solar Park every year. In medical emergencies for tourists as well as for people of Varahi their must be a well equipped hospital.
