These past 25 years have witnessed an escalation of state-organised communal massacres in the name of "fighting terrorism" and opposing "religious fundamentalism". Starting with the attack on the Golden Temple and the brutal massacre of people of the Sikh faith in November 1984, demolition of the Babri Masjid in Ayodhya followed by brutal massacre of Muslims in 1992-93, and the genocide unleashed against Muslims in Gujarat in 2002 – all reveal a consistent pattern. They reveal the unmistakable hand of the ruling class and its state in the organisation of the communal pogroms.

Organising communal genocide is part of the preferred method of governance in India, institutionalised into the state apparatus. Governments use communal violence to divide people and divert people from their common struggles for a better livelihood.

All parties in power justify using state terrorism and communal violence, in the name of fighting terrorism and of defending the unity and integrity of India. We must demand justice for victims; end to state sponsored communal violence and punishment of the guilty. We must support the struggles of Indian people to fight for an end to this hateful system which offers nothing but savage exploitation and unbearable oppression, death and destruction, poverty and destitution; Struggles for the realisation of a People's Democratic India with working people empowered to be sovereign.India with people as decision makers, masters of their own destiny with no place for exploitation, oppression and insecurity.
