The content is reports (from the mainstream media, autonomous media and unpublished material) and information on implications of the rise of fundamentalist politics and shrinking secular spaces in South Asia; It is intended as a counter information effort for people concerned and interested in issues of peace, secularism and democratisation in or connected to South Asia.

* SACW posts are about 70-90 k in size and there is normally one post every 5 - 6 days.

** Sister Initiatives of SACW include:
- South Asians Against Nukes [the website not being updated currently but its newsletter is active]
