Working people of Dhule city in Maharashtra demand justice

Rioting police caught on camera!

On 6th January six people of theMuslim faith were killed in the course of state repression unleashed by police in Dhule a city of Maharashtra.Many people suffered huge economic damage during that incident.The affected citizens have pointed out that even after 4 weeks of that incident the Maharashtra state government has not given any compensation to the affected families of diseased or injured people. In fact they are being told that they will receive compensation only after an enquiry commission submits its report. A person injured during the violence reported that "it is more than 3 weeks since the violence happened but even now the Chief Minister has not declared as to which judge will be conducting the enquiry! This clearly shows that the Chief Minister is not giving any importance to the injustice we have suffered”.

The six people who were killed all died due to police firing and police resorted to firing without any genuine reason. This is proved by the photographic evidence published in the Indian Express which clearly show that the police went around smashing two wheelers and hawker’s stalls on absolutely deserted streets and that they fired above the waist. The rule book of Maharashtra police clearly states that before resorting to firing warning must be given on a public address system and if resorted to then the firing should be done below waist height. It also mentions that the objective of such firing is not to kill anybody but to disperse the mob. But all those who have to bear the brunt of state violence know fully well from their experience that all such rules are meant to be only in books. In Dhule also the same thing happened. No warning was given before firing and all those who died had bullet wounds in the upper parts of their bodies.

Whether it is the experience of thousands of people of Delhi who raised their voice for justice against the Delhi gang rape or the experience of state organized pogroms of 1984, 1992-93, 2002 etc. , it is a clear lesson that we must focus on building peoples samitis in residential areas and workplaces to defend ourselves against such violence and assert our rights. We cannot rely on the state or any of its institutions to protect us.

All over the country people from all sections of society are fighting for justice and rights. The ruling class and all their major political parties have been thoroughly discredited in the eyes of majority of our people. In such a situation the ruling classes are using their favorite weapon of creating communally charged atmosphere, organising communal massacres, etc. It is the working class and the other sections of working people who are at the receiving end of all such heinous activities. To divide the people and to divert them from their struggle for justice are the main aims of the ruling classes behind such activities. We will have to be alert and not fall prey to such machinations.
