Satya Satyagrah

A Humble Reminder for Social Reform, Justice, and Harmony
 

2004 marked the second anniversary after the Gujarat Riots and the completion of over two years in which Gujarat managed to avoid major violent actions. However, Mr. M H Jowher,  SPRAT's President, recognized the enduring presence of social iniquity, injustice for victims ofthe riots, and unfounded arrest of hundreds under POTA. He wished to take astand against the increasing apathy of society  and the government about these issues.

SPRAT's president, Mr. Jowher, in the middle As a result, Mr. Jowher sat in his outdoor Satya Satyagrah shelter for 13 days, consuming only liquids while continuing to perform his normal daily office tasks on his laptop. When not working for the Home Office, Mr. Jowher met with fellow activists, religious leaders, and professionals to discuss the issues of his Satyagrah and their possible solutions.

ImageAdditionally, to increase active participants in the movement for harmony and justice, SPRAT developed and handed out Satya Satyagrah forms for both Hindus and Muslims. These forms each consisted of over thirty undertakings, at least half of which signatories were encouraged to commit to before returning the forms to SPRAT. The replies in these forms were also used for research purposes post-Satya Satyagrah.
