An attack on one is an attack on all!

Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 22nd May 2017

It was a communal act, an act of blatant interference of the State in a religious congregation. It was an act of the highest criminal degree, in violation of all accepted principles of governance. The State, whose core duty is supposed to include protecting its citizens’ lives and their right to any form of religious worship, sent its army to attack a place of worship, killing thousands of its own citizens assembled there.

Unite and fight for a State that would guarantee prosperity and protection for all!

Statement of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 5th December, 2015

The demolition of Babri Masjid exposed the fact that communalism and communal violence had become an unwritten policy of the Indian State.  It is not the religious beliefs of anyone that is to blame.  It is the ruling class and its method of rule that is responsible.

The dispute over Babri Masjid was deliberately reignited by the Indian big bourgeoisie to divide the people on communal lines.  The aim was to disrupt and paralyze the struggles of the working class and people against the all sided attacks being launched on their rights, as well as to suppress dissident factions within the bourgeois class.

Communal violence and incitement of competing sectarian agitations based on religion and caste were all deployed to create a climate of mayhem and chaos, within which the unpopular policy changes could be pushed through.  This is the real explanation for the rapid escalation of communal and sectarian violence in the nineties.

Protests and demonstrations across the country marked the 22nd anniversary of the demolition of Babri Masjid. From Kolkatta to Malegaon and from Dehradun to Coimbatore, people came out on the streets in hundreds of thousands to demonstrate their anger with what happened 22 years ago – the criminal act of the demolition of the Masjid and the communal killings organized by the State in its aftermath.

Delhi witnessed a massive rally from Mandi House to Jantar Mantar that culminated in a 3 hour meeting at which speakers from about 30 organisations condemned the criminal act and committed to unite against state terrorism and fight for the renewal of Indian Society.

Starting from 10 a.m. in the morning, hundreds of people began assembling at Mandi House. The numbers swelled and by about 11:30 a.m. the rally began with thousands of protestors marching in a disciplined manner behind the main banner, which boldly declared, ‘Unite against communal hate-mongering and violence, state terror and for rebuilding a just society!’ and ‘An attack on one is an attack on all!’ Representatives of all the organisations were with the main banner as the rally proceeded towards Jantar Mantar. Militant slogans of “Down with State Terror” and demanding punishment of those guilty of the crime reverberated in the air.

Sixty five years after independence from the British, who is free in India today? Workers, peasants, intellectuals, women, religious minorities, nations and nationalities are all oppressed. The big bourgeoisie has used the state of the Indian Republic to become the most dominant and ruling force of society, and is dragging the entire country onto a dangerous path – colluding and contending with other imperialist powers, and has grown rich not only by domestic but also through external plunder. The time has come to negate this state which negates the rights and aspirations of all our peoples. This can be done if and only if the working class takes the lead.  For India to be free and independent, it is essential that every part our country, every section of our people, is free from oppression or discrimination of any kind.  On the 65th anniversary of independence, the Communist Ghadar Party calls on all… to unite firmly around the program to reconstitute the Indian Union on a voluntary basis, redefine democracy to empower the people!

Sri Krishna Committee submits report on Telengana: Condemn the deliberate inflaming of passions among the people!

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Sun, 16/01/2011 - 10:30

 

The Sri Krishna Committee on Telengana submitted its report to the Central Government on December 30, 2010. It presents six options to deal with the problem, with one identified as the "most preferred option", and another identified as a second option. The other four options are termed impractical by the Committee itself. The Sri Krishna Committee had been set up by the UPA Government in February 2010 to allegedly assist it to arrive at a solution to the agitation in Andhra Pradesh for and against Telengana. Now, the ball is in the court of the UPA Government to hit which way it chooses.

Sir,Operation Blue Star was the opening of the flood gates to a massive onslaught that would be launched against Sikhs in the coming months and years, which would tear asunder the struggles of the peasantry and the common working people. The use of massive violence then paved the path to the dovetailing of the people of India into the agenda of the bourgeoisie.
