We dedicate this campaign to Lila Salter, an Australian girl who spent most of her life in India and loved Vrindavan more than life itself, but was murdered there in February 2008.
This event could have been averted had there been a more adequate system of law and order in place for the safety of all the people in that area.
It is said, ‘God is too big to fit into one religion.’ In this age of stressful living and threats of war and terrorism, many of us like to take solace in our spiritual beliefs. It is a world of choices, be they Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Hindu or any other spiritual path.
We all expect to be free to visit the holy places all around the world and imbibe their spirituality in safety.
Vrindavan Dham is one such place. It is unique, in that there are five thousand temples in a small area. A huge number of pilgrims and tourists flock yearly from India and abroad in increasing numbers.
Unfortunately, it is common place for tourists and pilgrims to experience criminal elements, corruption, and a general lack of adequate law and order.
Please, no matter what your religious beliefs, sign our petition to the Government of India to declare Vrindavan a tourist place, to crack down on violent crime, to increase law and order, and to bring in tourist police for the safety and protection of all pilgrims.
Let us create a Vrindavan that is a wonderful, secure place for everyone for many generations.
