The establishment of the first Hindu Court in UP’s Meerut district on August 15, 2019 (72nd Independence Day) with Pooja Shakun Pandey, national secretary of Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha, notorious for re-enacting ‘Gandhi assassination’ on last January 30, as the first judge should not be construed merely as symbolic. The judge then itself, pronounced that the Court will have proper jails and maximum punishment will be death. The bylaws of the Court based on Manu Smriti will be released on Gandhi Jayanti on October 2, and the names of five more judges will be announced then, who will take charge…

The unfolding scenario with respect to Kashmir now reveals a well-thought out strategy behind abrogation of Article 370 and 35A as these clauses had been a barrier to the unfettered plunder and loot of the Kashmiris and their resources by the corporate speculators and financial cronies. The Modi regime which in its compradorial role acts as a facilitator of corporatization, on account of this, has already led India to an unprecedented economic collapse as manifested in diverse forms. But, due to its 'special status', unlike in other parts of India, J&K has been relatively immune from this predatory plunder and…

[Re-published by the Indian Cultural Forum on 11th July, 2019. One of the early writings of Dr Ambedkar, it gives a clear understanding on the origin of the caste system. From here he had developed his vision to the concept of Annihilation of the Caste System by 1936 as explained in his famous writing on it already published in the Red Star. “Castes in India: Their Mechanism, Genesis and Development” was a paper read by BR Ambedkar at an anthropological seminar of Alexander Goldenweiser in New York on 9 May, 1916. In 1979, the Education Department of the Government of…

[Note: The report given below is on the latest developments in Hong Kong which is getting major coverage in the corporate media in India also as a fight between ‘socialism’ in China and freedom fighters of Hong Kong! It is contrary to facts. The capitalist roaders in China after usurping power in post Mao years had turned it to a capitalist imperialist country with one-party bureaucratic ruling system which is on the one hand colluding with US led imperialist forces against the world people, while on the other contending with them for world hegemony. China’s accession of Hong Kong with…

A rejoinder to Dr. Ramachandra Guha’s Article in Telegraph: “Does the Indian Left Have a Future?” presently, when ‘the parliamentary communists have descended from the high of 2014 to the low of 2019’, Dr. Ramachandra Guha, a well known intellectual, in his article “Does the Indian Left have a future? (Telegraph) has given many advises for reviving it. As, not only in India, but internationally also when all the former socialist countries have degenerated to capitalist path and the communist or left movement as a whole is facing severe setbacks, it is the task of people who are engaged in…

[The neo-colonial transformation of its colonial policies by the US led imperialist camp during the post-Second World War years was a major step taken by it to overcome its crisis and to beat back the growing challenge posed by the socialist forces. But by 1970s, in spite of the disintegration of the socialist camp, the imperialist system could not overcome its perennial cycle of crises. So the neo-liberal policies with the liberalization-privatization-globalization trio under IMF-World Bank directives were imposed. But it only intensified the speculative nature of finance capital and frantic monopolization of wealth, along with sharpening of inter imperialist,…

the return of Modi rule with increased strength is not like Indira Gandhi led Congress returning to power in 1971, or any other such change of governments under the bourgeois democratic ruling system. Such comparisons will be simplistic. It reduces the great threat from the ‘New India’ RSS is trying to mould through the Modi rule. Even a glance through the Bunch of Thoughts of Golwalkar show that through its Hindu Rashtra concept RSS wants to take the Indian society back to the pre-renaissance Manuvadi conditions, to a caste and communal divided situation, which had weakened this South Asian polity…

as we have unequivocally pointed in the Party statement on the Pre-budget Economic Survey presented on 4th July, its ultra-rightist orientation is concretely manifested in Modi.2’s maiden budget presented to Lok Sabha by the new finance minister Nirmala Sitaraman on 5th July. Under the populist cover of certain freebies under several heads to peasants and rural sector, and for the appeasement of middle classes through income tax exemptions, this budget has initiated the biggest-ever integration of India’s infrastructure, finance, trade and service sectors with foreign corporate speculative capital. All restrictions to the free entry of FDI into social overheads, insurance,…

The Communist movement in India has a history of almost a century after the salvos of October Revolution in Russia brought Marxism-Leninism to the people of India who were engaged in the national liberation struggle against the British colonialists. It is a complex and chequered history.
