This association stems from a Facebook group started off as a source demonetization news and views group on 29th November 2016.

It has now been re-purposed to become a group that will work actively to protect the fundamental rights of every citizen of India as enshrined in the constitution of India.

The association is not pro any particular party but is pro-people.

Where ever the rights of individuals or groups of people are trampled, the group will raise its voice and work towards restoration of individual rights. It will channel its energies in fighting for the Idea-Of-India as a country with multiple religions, castes, creeds, color of skins and try to integrate all these into a fabric of secular India.

Started on 29th of November 2016, the group quickly grew to 75,000 members in the next 3 months. Today the group membership on Facebook stands at 88,000+ members.

Background

IAD started off as a Facebook group. When the group grew rapidly, there was a demand from the group members to do something more than just have a presence on Social Media. Around December 2016, a meeting was called of Group members and some group members met at Dadar on 8th January 2017 in Mumbai to chalk out a future course of action. The group membership at that point in time on Facebook was about 35,000 members.

Over the ensuing months the group membership has grown to more than 91,000+ (as on 08.08.2017) members on Facebook.

The group started off as a source of news and views on the Narendra Modi Government decision of demonetization of 500 and 1000 Rupees notes and the ill-effects it was having on the Indian economy.

The group, which started as Demonetization-2016 was renamed as India Against Demonetization. A public protest was held on 29th January 2017 at Marine Drive to register probably the only public protest by any Indian against the decision to demonetize 83% of currency and putting emergency brakes on the Indian economy.

As the effects of demonetization are wearing off, group members decided to organize themselves into an association that will protect the fragile democracy that now exists in our country.

About Us

“I will give you a talisman. Whenever you are in doubt, or when the self becomes too much with you, apply the following test. Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man [woman] whom you may have seen, and ask yourself, if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him [her]. Will he [she] gain anything by it? Will it restore him [her] to a control over his [her] own life and destiny? In other words, will it lead to Swaraj [freedom] for the hungry and spiritually starving millions?

Then you will find your doubts and yourself melt away.” – Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi.

Preamble

India is a socialist democratic republic as declared and enshrined in the constitution of India given by the people to the people and made operational on 26th January 1950.

The Indian Government is elected by the people of India to provide a framework of law ensuring the betterment of its people.

Over the last 67 years since the operation of our constitution, it has been repeatedly observed that political parties that form the government at the center and at the states no longer work for the welfare of its people but serve a few masters in exchange of pecuniary gains.

The letter and spirit of the constitution has been violated several times during the intervening years. Political parties that form governments are no longer working for the welfare of people anymore.

Therefore there is a need for the people of India to organize themselves in such a way as to be able to ensure that any political party that comes to govern India and its people remains within the framework of the constitution and does not use executive powers to bypass the constitution at will.

 And that every action of any such government is open to review by the people during the tenure of the government rather than once every five years at the time of elections.
