SIF Activists meet Parliamentary Committee

The ground level activism of the Save Indian Family Foundation (SIF) took a sudden surge today as SIF Members in Bangalore were invited to join other NGOs for a meeting with "PARLIAMENTARY STANDING COMMITTEE ON PERSONNEL, PUBLIC GRIEVANCES, LAW AND JUSTICE" at Hotel Grand Ashok. Today morning, they met MPs including Dr. P. C. Alexander and Mr. Ram Jethmalani. They got 8 minutes to talk, and that was more than enough to put the phrases like "LegalTerrorism", harassed mothers and pregnant sisters under 498a. Please find more details at:

The activists included Gorky, Saraswathi (president of Asha Kiran), Suresh, and father and brother of Sandy Patel.
