Arrest of senior journalist Sh. Vinod Verma by Chhattisgarh police Condemned

Senior journalist and writer Mr. Vinod Verma was arrested by the Chhattisgarh police from his residence situated in Indirapuram in district Ghaziabad. The Police allegedly arrested him in connection with possession of a CD showing amorous acts of a Minister in Chhattisgarh’s BJP Govt. and attempting to blackmail the concerned Minister, Mr. Rajesh Munot.

Mr. Vinod Verma is a senior journalist working for last three decades and has worked with BBC and Umar Ujala. He is a member of Editors’ Guild and was a member of the fact finding team sent by Editors’ Guild that had gone to Chhattisgarh to investigate cases of intimidation of journalists in that state.

Mr. Vinod Verma had been writing about the people’s issues and has exposed the violations of human rights in Chhattisgarh including attacks on the journalists who have exposed high-handedness and atrocities by the security forces. While Mr. Verma does have in his possession the material which incriminates a Minister of Chhattisgarh state, this is no crime and his arrest in this dramatic manner shows the increasing intolerance of the RSS-BJP Govt. to the exposure of the misdeed of its leaders.

Arrest of Mr. Vinod Verma is part of the attack of RSS-BJP Govt.Read More

AIKMS Condemns Police Firing on Peasants in Gujarat

CEC AIKMS has condemned police firing and tear gas lobbing on farmers protesting peacefully against a custodial death in Dahod, Gujarat. One farmer was killed and several others injured in the firing.

AIKMS has called for registration of separate FIRs of custodial killing and firing on unarmed protestors and arrest of persons involved in both the incidents. It has also demanded a judicial enquiry into both as is mandated by law.

 The police have registered a case of murder, section 302 and abetment, section 114 against 5 policemen while wrongly charging the victim peasants with a rioting case against 400 persons. The peasants were only demanding enforcement of law and it is the police which is responsible for the incident. None of the policemen has been arrested even though there is no way they could run away without depositing their arms.

AIKMS has also called for political will across the board to ban lawless actions of police force and strong administrative/ legal actions against such anti farmer, undemocratic, illegal actions by law enforcers. It has demanded measures to make police persons abide by the law. While govt. policies of ‘development’ are harming the people and undermining the peasantry’s ability to survive, the govt.Read More

US Imperialism: Aggressive Rhetoric, Declining Power

US President Trump’s speech at the United Nations General Assembly could be dismissed as madman’s rants but this mad man is the leader of the strongest power on the earth. It appeared that Trump was not addressing a gathering of diplomats from across the world but his domestic constituency – white supremacists, unemployed and of course big business. Despite the lunatic streak in his ravings, Trump has been intensifying attacks on third world countries to force them to submit to US dictates. Trump wants these countries to buy more from America while America closes its markets to them and it means more sales of armaments. However, Trump’s thrust is being checked by other sections of US establishment, in some respects toning down his war rhetoric and in other cases blunting the edge of his attempted rapprochement with Russia.

Trump selected Govts. of North Korea, Iran and Venezuela for special attack though he did mention those of Cuba and Syria as well. He threatened North Korea with nuclear annihilation while appreciating efforts by China and Russia on this issue. His threats were criticized by the leaders of the most countries who favoured that the issue be resolved through discussions.… Read More


Women and Socialism


India 2017. Rampant gender discrimination and gender exploitation prevails. This is despite upsurges of struggles against violence on girls and children in recent years and even earlier sustained struggles of 1970s and ‘80s forcing changes in rape, dowry and custodial laws pertaining to women. This is over and above and in fact often a form of expression of class exploitation, rendering lives more miserable for peasant and working class women and poor women in general. In addition, women of the minorities especially Muslims, also face gender violence by the state, by lumpens of ruling parties and even the state forces as part of violence against minorities. And perhaps the oldest and most sustained is the gender violence and discrimination faced by Dalit women from the so called upper castes. The challenges before the women’s movement are severe indeed, not only for fighting the immediate issues, not only running the battle against patriarchal attitudes and state sponsored and defended gender violence (rapes in AFSPA areas) but also some thought to an alternative society. The challenges are all the more urgent in the current political milieu, where the rise of Hindutva forces to power in the Central Govt. and in many state Govts.… Read More

Police Attack on Girl Students of BHU Condemned

UP committee of CPIML New Democracy has condemned the brutal baton charge on peacefully protesting girl students of BHU and has demanded immediate suspension of all officials concerned including the Vice Chancellor, Proctor and administrative and police officials pending a judicial enquiry by a Woman Judge.
The baton charge was obviously consented to by the BHU VC and the district officials to quell the protest against eve teasing and to assert imposition of Hindutwa code of restrictions on girl students of BHU, against which they have been struggling since long.
The VC has not only been justifying acts of violence against the girls, he is lending moral support to eve teasers, the BHU proctor and guards who failed in their duty to prevent sexual harassment and the officials who led the cane charge on girls. This is integral to male supremacy which excuses sexual assaults against women and is in harmony with Hindutwa ideology.
In order to divert attention from the basic demand for security by the girls and not answer for his abject failure to provide it, he is giving lame excuses ‘no written complaint on Sept 21st’, ‘protest by outsiders and political forces’, ‘petrol bombs’, ‘politically motivated to trigger fiasco during Modi visit’.… Read More

 S.S. Mahil

Chief of Dera Sacha Sauda, who designated himself as Gurmit Ram Rahim Singh pretending to be inclusive of all religions, and whose original name is Harpal Singh has been sentenced for twenty years of imprisonment in two separate cases of rape filed by his two close followers and has been sent to jail (In each of the two cases he has been sentenced for ten years of rigorous imprisonment) and a fine of thirty lakhs, out of which each victim is to be paid 14 lakhs each. After hearing this sentenced this so called baba squatted on the ground crying and started pleading for forgiveness. He was behaving like a child saying will not go to jail. Thus a self created aura of divinity around him was smashed proving him to be a coward. Even when his crime is proved and he is in jail, his representatives claim that they have been denied justice, some of his chieftains continue to say that even Jesus Christ was crucified and Guru Nanak was also put behind bars and all great gurus had to face such injustice. A majority of his followers still think that their guru is innocent, has not committed any crime and is wrongly jailed.… Read More
