Description

Aman Biradari
Aman Biradari is a people’s campaign for a secular, peaceful, just and humane world. It aspires to build local level institutions mainly of youth and women, of diverse faith, caste and gender, at village and district levels to strengthen mutual bonds of tolerance, fraternity, respect and peace between people of different religious groups, caste and language groups, to promote equal citizenship, justice, communal harmony, peace, and the celebration of our social and cultural diversity.

The Dil Se Campaign was launched in June 2005, with the objective of developing a scaleable intervention model that upholds the dignity and inclusive rights of the urban poor, specifically for children who live and work on the streets. Dil Se is not about short-term solutions; it is about building capacity in all sectors of society to help ensure that the most vulnerable urban street children have nutritious food, protection, health care, and proper education. Led by Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) Delhi, Government of Delhi, the Dil Se Campaign is a joint endeavor with the Center for Equity Studies (CES) and Aman Biradari.

The aftermath of the carnage in Gujarat in 2002 has witnessed the most elaborate deliberate subversion of legal justice by the government in Independent India. It has also witnessed some of the most effective resistance but civil society and human rights activists, and moments of unprecedented judicial remedies by the Supreme Court.

The Nyayagrah team is comprised of Hindus and Muslims, men and women, middle class and working class, believers and non-believers who are drawn together by their commitment to the ideal of equal citizenship rights for all Gujarat is irrespective of their religion, class, caste, or gender. The team strives to create a self-sustaining legal resource that will provide valuable legal advice to the poor and vulnerable sections of both the Hindu and Muslim communities in Gujarat.

Nyayagrah with the Lawyers’ Collective fought a long battle in the Supreme Court to challenge the closure without trial of more than 2000 cases registered after the Gujarat carnage. An enormous success of Nyayagrah, in January 2006, the Gujarat government ordered the reopening of all but 22 of the closed cases.
