Namaste All,


We understand how passionate most of you all are about India. We understand you speak here with that passion and try to voice your support and defend what you believe in when expressing your feelings. However, we have built this organization/community to be together no matter what happens outside this community. 
We built this community to not just for the people who are in these groups today; we built for it to last for generations to come as a place where everyone feels safe and feels a place they can come to celebrate with each other and support each other in times of needs.

Please be mindful of this overarching vision of why we started VSF and why so many of us strive everyday to keep that vision alive.

 

We do not tolerate  personal attacks (direct or indirect) against any individuals for what they believe in. We also do not tolerate inciting comments and posts. Being part of this community is a privilege;  please be respectful of that.

 

We will revoke the privileges when someone actions are not supportive of the vision with which we started this organization.

 

Sincerely 
VSF Board
