We have decided that the entire SIFF and AIMPF will join his movement along with civil society to take this issue to its final conclusion. We were shocked about the kind of action that was taken against Ramdev. Not only was he arrested but women and children who were participating in the fast were beaten up which reminds me of the Jallianwala Bagh incident in Punjab during the British rule,” added Manjit Puri (President All India Mother In Law Protection Forum) while representing the members of the three organization. Over 70 activists from all walks of life were present for the protest.
