S V Raju (1933-2015)

SV Raju, 81, a founding member of Swatantra Party and longstanding editor of the lone libertarian journal in India, Freedom First, who passed away on Tuesday (19 May 2015) morning, was no lily-livered, fair-weather votary of liberal ideas. The stated objectives of Freedom First, and indeed the Swatantra Party were: creating a new society, secular in its foundation; ensuring liberty of thought, belief and action; and the realisation of economic and social justice for all the citizens of the free republic.
