AVS Press Release dated June 5, 2011

Arsha Vidya Satsanga, Houston, condemns the violent crackdown of and dispersal by the Government of India of the peaceful anti-corruption protest by unarmed citizens at the Ramlila grounds in Delhi on Sunday, June 5, 2011.

The citizens of India, under the leadership of Swami Ramdev, have demonstrated that they are capable of protesting peacefully. In turn, the Indian Government has demonstrated that it will not hesitate to violently suppress legitimate grievances of the citizens of India. We salute all Indian citizens who displayed patriotism and have shown courage in the midst of lathi-charge, tear-gas and other violent assaults.

Corrupt Governance has been eating into the vitals of India. The Indian Government has shown no willingness to bring action despite ample evidence of massive fraud over the years.

Arsha Vidya Satsanga prays to all Indians to express solidarity during this crucial period and stay with the movement to reform Indian Governance.
