We must build a system wherein state organized communal and terrorist violence will have no place

I read your article entitled '21 years after the destruction of Babri Masjid: State organized communal violence and terror remains the preferred weapon of he ruling class' in the Dec.1-15, 2013 issue of MEL. It is very important to note, as has been done in the article, that the '...destruction of the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya on December 6, 1992 was carried out with the full complicity of the Congress party government at the centre and the BJP government in UP.' This is very important because there is a lot of confusion in the public mind about the nature of that event and the tendency to lay the blame on the doorstep of the BJP alone. Indeed, by naming both BJP and Congress, it is clear that the the blame must be apportioned to the entire Indian state machinery which time and again resorts to divide and rule in order to prevent the people of India, who are presently powerless, to aspire to a situation where the power may pass into their hands. In fact, the events of December 1992 brought out this situation in particularly sharp relief. In fact in the ensuring two decades, the perception that the bourgeoisie continues to use communal violence is continuously reinforced by their activities.

As for the events of 1992, no significant person has been brought to book and has been punished for his or her role in those events, or in the horrific riots that took place in many important towns and cities. It is no surprise since those riots were organized at the highest levels of government and political party apparati and thus no one was ever expected to be brought to book. On the other hand, in the struggle for justice for the victims, the birth of the consciousness of the reality in India has taken place with many principled individuals and organizations taking up a tireless struggle. All this is the part of the struggle for the revolutionary transformation of India that is still nascent. Indeed, I would like to second the sentiment expressed in the article that reads “The challenge before the working class and all people of conscience is to put an end to this system and replace it with a new system in which the toiling people will have political power in their hands, to set the agenda of society in the interests of the vast majority and deal the harshest punishment to all those who inflict such crimes on our people. In such a system, state organized communal and terrorist violence will have no place and the rights, the lives and liberties of every human being will be secure.''

Sincerely,

S. Nair, Kochi

Manifesto 2014Unite around the program to reconstitute the Indian Republic and reorient the economy to ensure prosperity and protection for all!

There is growing realisation among workers, peasants and other self-employed people that the program of liberalisation and privatisation only serves to enrich an exploiting minority at their expense. Mass resistance is growing to this anti-worker, anti-peasant and anti-national program.
