JR, what's the intention behind this pathetic title change? what do you mean by "the india thread"? that you want people to see india in a negative angle after reading the first few posts of this thread?
mods, please close this thread......
I will say is that the thread has gone off topic and perhaps another one should be created but women's rights in most cases have never been changed without civil disobedience no matter what country it is. In the U.S. we can go back as far as women fighting for the right to vote so what the women in your country is doing is no different than what women all over the world has done and will continue to do. These women and their supporters have the right to fight for the right for women to no longer be victims of physical and mental abuse and they've had enough. Of course it hurts when it's your country but in the world of technology it only helps the cause because without it many abuses wouldn't change. We can go back to the Civil Rights Movement in the U.S., apartheid in S. African, genocide in Southern Sudan and the list goes on.
I'd like to make it clear to you that I have no ill feeling nor am I judging your country any more than I judge my own and am sorry that you're taking it personal because all countries have done and or currently doing things that embarrass their citizens but I will not stop fighting for the rights of people that are being disenfranchised.
Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.
