Goal of the fundraiser:
The only crime Babulal Vaishnav did was to standup against people who wanted to take over temple land. He leaves behind a family of 6: 4 daughters,1 son and wife. We must ensure that he gets justice, while we understand that no money can bring back a life, but the funds raised will help the family sustain hardship funds raised from this campaign will come to the immediate assistance of the family. The funds raised from this campaign will be transfered to the family members of Babulal Vaishnav.
