The Indian Government

Support Ashis Nandy's Freedom of Speech

    1. Ravi Sundaram
    2. Petition by

      Ravi Sundaram

      Delhi, India

We the undersigned express our solidarity with Prof Ashis Nandy, a distinguished scholar and public intellectual. Over the years Ashis Nandy has affirmed the rights of marginalized groups and communities to assert and express themselves in their unique ways. His own method has been to illuminate through anecdote, aphorism and irony. In the context of the discussion at the Jaipur Literary Festival, Nandy was asked to respond on corruption, the marginalized and the state of the Republic. While Nandy’s deliberately ironic remark on corruption in the OBC and SC/ST political elites as a form of equality may not be to the liking of all, we have no doubt that it was meant to question the upper caste-middle class notions of morality rather than denigrate marginalized and subaltern groups. Ashis Nandy has evolved a distinctive and provocative style of making claims, comments and arguments.

In a country where intellectual freedoms are shrinking every day, the right of thinkers like Ashis Nandy to argue and articulate unconventional views must be protected at all costs.

To:
The Indian Government
Support Ashis Nandy's Freedom of Speech

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Anyone who questions the morality and integrity of the Indian upper middle class is close to my heart. Moreover, I met Ashis in Zagarolo, Italy recently at the inuguration Mela for FIND.

      In "Ramayana" , the devils named by 'Khara' & 'Dushana', practically it means 'Khara' the devil destroys 'Human Intellectual' & the devil 'Dushana' creates pollutions as mental, environmental etc.

      from my writings:" Mind is the speediest and strongest,

      On top poses Impulses of Sense ,

      Greatest of All 'He' who wins over Intelligence.

      Thanks & Regards

      We are turning into an intolerant society which does not allow free thinking individuals to question the prevalent view or reappraise the role of public figures, who have been appropriated by various practitioners of identity politics. This trend must be reversed if we are to survive as a pluralist democratic society.

      We have the right to express our views and that's why I support Prof Ashish Nandy. Now let's see who wins the battle between limited knowledge and wisdom.... AD
