Probably, you did not go through my scribe fully, and patiently. Mention of Sweden has been made in the international context. And it was the first country to pass freedom of Information law.
In India also, it was not like that one fine day Indian Government woke-up and decided to pass the RTI Law. It was the tremendous internation pressure, mandates of Universal Declaration of Human Rights, International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and other International public laws, Judgments and opinions of Supreme Court of India and also continuous efforts of various NGOs and fighters of civil rights including H.D. Shourie, Arvind Kejriwal, Aruna Ray, Nikhil Chakravorty, Kuldip Nayyar, Swami Agnivesh andMedha Patkar.
And all these, boosted the awareness of people of India of their fundamental right i.e. right to information to such a magnitude that India for the first time witnessed the incident like Bhim Tehsil in Rajsthan in the year 1998.
Shri Anna Hazare, of course one of them. He was instrumental in passing of Maharashtra Right to Information Act, 2002.
I understand, you may not like anything talked about RTI without mention of "Shri Anna Hazare".
