Sign the petition to demand an end to arbitrary Internet shutdowns

I think the title says it all.
India had more Internet shutdowns in 2016 than any other country.

State governments are increasingly shutting off the Internet, supposedly to thwart everyone from protesters to exam cheats. Millions of people are routinely cut off on someone's whim, with zero rules or oversight. This is unacceptable. Even for stopping riots — the official justification often provided for many shutdowns — there is evidence that blackouts do more harm than good. Cutting off Internet access prevents innocent people from using the Internet to learn about trouble spots to stay away from, from reaching out for help and from making sure that loved ones are safe.

There is little evidence that that harm is even prevented by Internet shutdowns.

I'd like Indian pirates as a group to sign the petition below by Internet Freedom Foundation demanding an end to Internet shutdowns in India.

Though I don't think it has happened in India before. Correct me if I'm wrong.
