- What is the purpose of Indic Forum?
We realize that free speech is important. There is a need for truthfulness along with free speech. Traditional social media is designed to make money by generating activity and often these companies suppress viewpoints that they do not agree with. Indic Forum is a portal – yours and ours – where ideas can be shared freely. We believe that discussions important to dharma and the plural civilization of India should be discussed in a safe environment without imposed censorship.
