Campaign to Make Vrindavan Safe sign now

To the Government of India

17 year old Lila Salter was brutally murdered in Vrindavan, Utar Pradesh in February 2008. Her death could easily have been avoided.

For Lila, Vrindavan was the most wonderful place in the world due to it's spiritual nature as the birth place of Sri Krishna. Most Indian nationals value it as the place of many spiritual pastimes or lilas and it attracts increasing numbers of peaceful pilgrims and tourists year on year. Such activities are vital and should be highly valued in our war torn age.

But this Lila, an intelligent young woman was not safe. After several incidents known to the police, where her safety and the safety of other tourists was threatened, she was ultimately murdered.All these incidents could have beenlawfully dealt with and her death avoided.

Vrindavan is becoming famous world wide due a large number of people converting to or rediscovering their Vaishnavism, or spiritual heritage. There are many foreigners residing here long term as well as many Indians purchasing holiday residences and retirement homes along with just weekend tourists coming to visit the some 5000 temples.

Given that India is set to deploy tourist police at its important tourist destinations to ensure the security of foreign visitors and also in view of the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi in 2010, we urgently request that you seriously consider our petition. Your own Minister of State for Tourism and Culture, Kanti Singh, said at a press conference recently:

"To ensure safety and security, the state governments have been requested to deploy tourist police at all important tourist destinations,"

India is progressive and understands the need for security and safety for tourists: Vrindavan is a key tourist resort.

We urgently request that you make this LILA SALTER CAMPAIGN FOR SAFETY a priority so that other such deaths are avoided.
