Saajhi Duniya began some decades ago with passionate intervention by a few individuals in the increasing communal situation in the country. For a couple of years it worked without a name or structure. Soon a structured group emerged under the name "Nagrik-Dharma Samaj", and other issues of human rights, especially gender issues, came in the focus of our activities along with the question of communalism. Also, the name "Saajhi Duniya" replaced "Nagrik Dharma Samaj". Although, working for several decades,  almost entirely on our personal resources, “Saajhi Duniya” got itself registered only in 2004 under the societies Registration Act of the Government of India.
