FREEDOM WEEK PROGRAMS: August 9 – 15

This year, the country celebrates the 75th Anniversary of one of the most glorious chapters of our Freedom Struggle, the Quit India Movement, that was launched on August 9, 1942. The irony is that the Hindu fundamentalist forces, who today are attempting to redefine nationalism and instill their false nationalism in us, had not participated in the freedom struggle and were more interested in dividing the people on communal lines effectively sabotaging the freedom struggle. In these difficult times, when there is a massive resurgence of HIndu fundamentalist forces, it is important to recall the values and spirit of our freedom struggle. Every year, Lokayat celebrates Freedom Week, starting from August 9, Quit India Day, to August 15, Independence Day. This year’s public programs:
