OBSERVE DECEMBER 6 AS ANTI-COMMUNALISM DAY

–> IMMEDIATELY ARREST CULPRITS OF ATTACKS IN MUZAFFARNAGAR
–> ENSURE THAT DISPLACED GO BACK TO THEIR HOMES
–> DECOMMUNALIZE POLICE AND ADMINISTRATION

Organizing violence against minorities and deepening communal division has been an old practice of Indian ruling classes to disrupt the unity of the people to pre-empt and disrupt their struggles against the ruling classes. It has also been an instrument used by the ruling classes in their contention for power. Thus division of the people has been an instrument of state policy of the ruling classes along with repression of people’ struggles and reforms to sow illusions among the people.

Muslims in Muzaffarnagar have become the latest victims of these nefarious designs. A conflict over an alleged anti-social act of eve-teasing has been converted into a full scale pogram, killing over 68 people (reportedly 13 belonging to Jat community, rest Muslims), injuring hundreds of them, destroying thousands of houses and displacing tens of thousands of them (50,955 admitted by UP Govt.) In its bid for power and having nothing else to offer to people, RSS-BJP have tapped into social unrest- agrarian crisis, gross unemployment of youth, conflicts in agrarian relations and also social conflicts as the rigid caste structure is shaken by youth who are moving out of the rigid rural framework, decline of agriculture relative to other sectors of economy and resultant relative prosperity of hitherto unprivileged owing to non-agrarian sources- to create a powerful mix of social toxin to create the havoc being witnessed in Muzaffarnagar.… Read More

Communalism

SP Govt. not to let Muslims return to their homes

Mulayam Singh Yadav graced Talkatora Stadium for the Convention Against Communalism. Even though convened by parliamentary Left parties, he did not leave anybody in doubt as to who was the master of ceremonies as he rose to ask his supporters not to leave the venue after his address which was threatening to almost empty the Stadium. But more amazing was the feat of these Left parties who did not even press him for announcing the time line by which his party’s Govt. would ensure that all Muslims forced out by violence orchestrated by Sangh Parivar and assisted by SP led Govt. would be able to go back to their homes.  But Mulayam Singh does not want to send them back to their villages at all.  It is time that parties are judged by their deeds. This certification office of secular parties which is but a euphemism for doles of seats by the powerful regional satraps, should be closed. What justification could there be for the presence of AIADMK which did not and does not mince words as to where their sympathies lay in the political spectrum of the country.

But let us stay with Samajwadi Party of Mulayam Singh. Its UP Govt.… Read More

STOP THE £ 3000 CASH BOND PILOT SCHEME FOR THE UK VISITORS FROM INDIA, PAKISTAN, BANGLADESH, SRI LANKA, GHANA AND NIGERIA

(The following letter was sent from CPI(ML)-New Democracy to Rt. Hon. Theresa May M.P., Home Secretary, U.K. through British High Commission, Chanakyapuri, New Delhi on October 10, 2013)

Through this letter we wish to draw your kind attention to the proposed introduction of the £ 3000.00 UK Visitor visa pilot scheme which applies to visitors from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Ghana and Nigeria only. While there is no scientific immigration data to substantiate that visitors from these countries overstay the permitted period of their visa, the proposed imposition of £ 3000 cash bond scheme only on the visitors from these countries, four South Asian and two African, is highly discriminatory and smacks of racism.

This scheme will cause a lot of hardships to the families and prevent them from sharing their happiness on occasions like weddings and other social events and also their sorrows in cases of deaths and terminal illnesses.

Besides smacking of racism, this scheme also creates division between haves and have nots as not all can afford £ 3000.00 cash for the bond.  It will put a lot of burden on the common families who can not afford the above mentioned sum. These ought not be used as occasions for earning money by the Govt.… Read More

CPI-ML New Democracy Land Struggles Ruling Class

Press Release – CPI(M-L) New Democracy opposes High Court decision to free Bathe killers

             The Bihar State Committee of the CPI(M-L) New Democracy strongly opposes the decision of the Patna High Court declaring all the accused in the Bathe genocide not guilty and freeing them. The result is that after a long process of 16 years, the govt., its police machinery and the judiciary has not found guilty or punished a single person for the brutal cold-blooded massacre of 58 landless poor peasants mostly dalits in Laxmanpur Bathe on the night of 1-2nd December 1997. It is no secret that Bathe massacre was a part of a series of murderous assaults unleashed by landlord goonda gangs and private armies in order to terrorize landless and poor peasants of Bihar who were daring to stand up against feudal exploitation and oppression. This decision and the earlier similar decision in the Bathani Tola massacre case will further embolden the oppressor upper caste landlords and their goonda gangs and armies like the erstwhile Ranvir Sena in Bihar. This decision is another reminder to the exploited and oppressed toiling masses particularly dalits, adivasis, minorities that they cannot expect to get justice under the present law enforcement system and it is only through intensifying their own struggles that they can defend themselves.… Read More

Muzaffarnagar Riots – SP Govt allows BJP to Replay Gujarat Game Plan to Communalize Uttar Pradesh.

Led by Amit Shah, UP BJP has launced a vicious communal propaganda against Muslims in UP particularly in the districts of Muzaffarnagar, Shamli, Meerut, Bijnor, Bhaghpat, Saharanpur of West UP. Like in Gujarat in 2002, they are conducting a malicious disinformation campaign with regard to safety of Hindu women to inflame anti muslim passions and to target them. More than 42 people have been accepted by the govt as killed with widespread violence in rural areas. Several thousands have been displaced as they ran to safer places, mostly to relatives in less affected areas. Hundreds of dwellings and shops have been destroyed and looted. It is apparent that majority of the affected people are muslims as it is mainly they who are being discovered displaced.

CPI(ML) ND has condemned the Hundutwa brigade for conduct of the riots and the communal propaganda. Criticizing the failure of the SP administration to stop these riots, it has said that evidence points to Samajwadi Party’s willful and conscious connivance in permitting and aggravating these riots.Read More
