From corruption to crimes against women, racism to religious intolerance, and now ban against cow slaughter to mandatory link of Aadhar with Pan Card, India has been witnessing a number of protests in the last few years. Brave citizens across the country have stood up against all odds to protest against insensitivity, apathy or one-sided ideology of the authorities, groups or government. Thousands of activists and civilians regularly come out on the streets to protest against one issue or the other which they think are a threat to democracy.
Utilizing their freedom of speech and expression, people have protested or are protesting using various tools and platforms available to them. Ranging from truly humourous ones to serious notes, here are some of the most creative and funny protest signs from both online and offline worlds. Take a look.
1. Linking of Aadhar with Pan Card
This is how a redditor has linked his Aadhar card with Pan to mock or protest against the government’s move to mandatorily link the two.
2. Against cow slaughter ban
It seems true that cow has become more important than the lives and rights of citizens in the largest democracy of the world.
3. On rape or crimes against women
Clothes have nothing to do with rape. It is the mentality of men that needs to be changed, not the clothes.
4. Against religious intolerance
True, the greatest tragedy is not the brutality of evil people, but rather the silence of the good people or those in the position to.
5. Against violence on Christians
Simply the best protest sign. Indeed regretted!
6. For corruption-free India
There’s time to meet and time to part, time to sow and time to reap. It’s time we are free from all kinds of corruption.
7. Demand for job opportunity
Yes, what good is education or high percentage of marks if there’s no future or opportunity to make a living.
8. Against the reservation system
True for many. Indeed reservation system compromises better quality of things in many crucial areas.
9. Against politician’s remark – “immodest dress invites rape”
What about men? Will a woman kidnap and rape a man because he comes out on the street with a so-called ‘inappropriate dress’? Never. It is all in the mentality of men, not in the dress of the women. Change the minds, people.
10. Against racism and discrimination on people from the northeast.
“Chinky” is a racial slur, not an identity!
Let us wake up and make a better India.
