Stop attacks on witnesses & lawyers of India's 8-Year-Old Rape Victim from Kathua

Witnesses and lawyers representing the 8-year-old Muslim girl who was gang-raped and murdered in Kathua, India, this year, are being attacked and intimidated, as the trial unfolds. We need to put a stop to this!  Sign this petition and join Apne Aap and Equality Now to ask Prime Minister Modi to ensure that justice is not denied in this case! Despite the brutal nature of the crime committed by powerful men against an innocent child, some groups are running media campaigns and holding rallies in support of the perpetrators and attacking the lawyers and witnesses. They have politicized the case by presenting it falsely as a case against the Hindu community. They are even hounding the entire nomadic community of Bakarwals that the little girl belonged to.  Some police officers (who are now co-accused in the case) also tried to destroy evidence of the crime. Attempts have been made to physically prevent the charges against the accused rapists being filed in court.  Despite an increasing number of rape cases being reported every day, survivors of sexual violence struggle to get justice within the Indian legal system. Between 2015 and 2016 alone there was an 82% spike in reported rapes of children. Another 133,000 rape cases were pending trial in the same year. Please sign the petition and raise your voice to demand a fair and impartial trial in the Kathua case, so that the family of the 8-year-old gets justice. Insist that the Modi government take immediate action to stop the intimidation and to address the larger systemic problem of sexual violence within the country. Thank you.

Petition to PM Narendra Modi

Once and for all Small and Marginal Farmers Loan Waiver throughout India!!

I, as an Indian support once and for all Loan Waiver program to the most deserving profession and back bone of our country. I also want the GOI under PM Modiji to ensure that insurance penetration is done at high priority so that there will no need of  loan waivers again as  they hurt our financial institutions and economy substantially.  We are ready to waive off bad loans for the rich but not for those who feed us?  Give it a thought and spread as much as you can. Its the minimum respect we can give to the God in the form of human. All small and marginal farmer's loan should be waived off is my request. It would be great If someone can suggest an alternative to help the present farmers as the future is planned well under the leadership of PM Modi. Whatever is the solution, addressing the issue is my utmost priority for my petition. Jai Hind!! " I just want to mention that even I am against regular loan waivers and thats the reason I mentioned once and for all!! What I meant by dat is: the GOI has already started kishi kalyan cess and fasal bhima yojana with a long term agenda which is sucessfully being impelemented. By that I can say the future is safe and I am very happy about that but what about the present generation farmers? Look at the suicide stats and the loan issues being faced by farmers!! The NPA's by big corporates can be considered as waived on a broader scale. I know what I meant and I can explain but to cut short I said waived. Our laws cant be changed to completely remove NPA's concept as to say on a broader scale it will not motivate comapanies to innovate and invest which will reduce our economy nd economic activity. So, legally few can escape using the loops and being unethical. But what about our farmers whose pain cannot be described in words" "Simple arithmetic shows that while the present size of tax exemptions on corporate income tax, excise and custom duty help only a handful of the ultra-rich (the top 1% who owns 58% of India’s total wealth), a farm loan waiver of one tenth the size would help crores of farmers who live on the cusp of life and death because of faulty economic policies." Please give a deep thinking and support the cause to save farmers from suicides and also save their families who are also a part of next generation. Jai Hind!!!

Petition to Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India

Make it mandatory for all Political Donations to be Cashless

The Demonetization of 500 and 1000 Rupee notes on November 8th, 2016, by the Prime Minister of India was hailed as a bold step in the fight against black money, supposedly expected to give the hoarders of unaccounted cash sleepless nights. While the common man has been forced to stand in line for hours everyday for more than 5 weeks, the Political Parties have conveniently escaped the inconvenience. As per current rules, Indian Political Parties are not required to declare the donor details if the donation received is less than 20,000 Rupees, and they are 100% tax-exempt. So, the parties can deposit infinite amount of cash in old notes, by saying that it was received in parts, with each part less than 20,000 and can escape any consequence.I have explained how political parties can exploit this loophole in detail here - https://yourstory.com/2016/11/demonetisation-loophole/ Currently, there are more than 1900 political parties in India, and they are using this loophole to convert all their black money to white. This concern has also been raised by the Chief Election Commissioner of India. (http://www.hindustantimes.com/india-news/parties-being-used-to-channelise-black-money-chief-election-commissioner/story-PcJ1GSSAErLPr32xym561K.htmlWhen the common man has to face so many restrictions on deposits and withdrawals, why should the Political Parties be exempt ?(http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/politics-and-nation/poliitcal-parties-exempted-from-scrutiny-for-cash-deposit-of-old-notes/articleshow/56022656.cms?from=mdr Dear Mr. Prime Minister, if according to you, these days beggars are also using Swipe Machines, and you are forcing everyone to go Cashless, why should the political parties not be forced to go cashless. We therefore urge you to 1. Make it mandatory for any donation above 100 rupee to any political party to be cashless2. Bring Political Parties under RTI, as per the CIC order #BringPoliticalPartiesUnderRTI#MakePoliticalDonationsCashless
