Women's Organisation Condemns the Targeting of Senior Lawyers

AIDWA 13 May 2019

AIDWA condemns the targeting of Human Rights activists and senior lawyers Indira Jaising and Anand Grover and their organization “Lawyers’ Collective” through a petition filed by a so called NGO “Lawyers Voice” where credentials are totally unknown.




Ms. Indira Jaising had recently, like so many eminent citizens and lawyers and women’s rights organizations and groups been critical of the procedure adopted by the Supreme Court and the “In-House Committee” of the Supreme Court in dealing with the case of Sexual Harassment filed by an ex-employee of the Supreme Court against the Chief Justice of India. The timing of this petition immediately thereafter asking for a criminal case to be filed against them for some alleged violation of “FCRA” directly in the Supreme Court seems to suggest that they are being targeted for this. We feel that no notice should have been issued in this matter and urge the Supreme Court to immediately dismiss the petition.

What is the Ram Temple REALLY about?

For the many who do not know what the original Ram Temple movement is and the many who may have forgotten the mayhem, eminent activist and journalist Teesta Setalvad presents a ready reckoner on what the Ram Temple movement really is about and why has it been so conveniently resurrected, twenty six years later in 2018.
