Not in the interests of the peoples of India and Pakistan

Submitted by vivek on Sun, 17/02/2013 - 03:00

I am writing to thank you for the insightful and important article entitled "Warmongering is totally against the interests of the peoples of India and Pakistan" in the February 1-15, 2013 issue of MEL. It is an important duty of all communists to avoid narrow chauvinism and to adopt the most sophisticated and enlightened position on the issue of warmongering, a favourite tool in the hands of the reactionary bourgeoisie. It is important to realize that the people of India and Pakistan are a fraternal people and it is only the reactionary bourgeoisie that has benefited first from the partition of the country and from every single war that the two countries have fought over the last nearly seven decades.

These wars have been fought by two countries which are themselves incipient imperialist powers and are willing participants in inter-imperialist and superpower intrigue during the days of the cold war, and now in the era of the unipolar world. While Pakistan often finds itself cornered by the machinations of the Anglo-American camp, it is also a player in the Sino-American contradictions and has courted disaster in the AfPak policy of the US. The diabolical Indian bourgeoisie now senses opportunities to try and corner Pakistan even more to find itself in a superior position in this imperialist chess game. Such games are bound to bring the worst kind of disaster to the peoples of the countries involved, with no guarantee that these will not spread beyond the borders and indeed precipitate a disastrous Third World War. I am writing to thank the CGPI for its timely warning on this issue.

Sincerely,

S. Nair, Kochi

Call of the Central Committee of Communist Ghadar Party of India, 30th August, 2012

Working class representatives from all over the country are gathering on 4th September, at a time when a titanic struggle is going on in our country. The struggle is between the majority of toiling and exploited people and a minority of exploiters. It is between the majority whose labour expands wealth and the minority who enjoy the fruits of wealth creation on the basis of their private property and positions of power.
