Brahminical-Manuvadi Sangh Parivar Strikes at Basic Unity of the People – CPI (ML) Red Star

03 April 2018
What Indian sub-continent is witnessing today is a third wave of assault on the unity of this region by the Brahminical forces, the first wave starting with the Aryan invasion, subjugating the natives of this vast region. This divided society was given a progressive direction by the thoughts of Gautam Budha preceded/followed by Lokayat/Charvaka schools. For a millenium or more the Brahminical divisive thought and the caste system it imposed were weakened and kept at bay. But the most foul and criminal aggression by the Adi Sankara led Braahminical forces, the second wave, struck at these progressive schools barbarously, imposing the hegemony of Manuvadi caste system and gender inequality. A millennium of domination by these disintegrating forces during which many other forces also entered the scene and all of them trying to dominate separately/cumulatively, weakened the sub-continental polity. It created conditions for imperialist invasions and colonization by the British imperialists. It was the resistance to this colonization and the national liberation movement of the peoples of the sub-continent, in spite of the heinous ‘divide and rule’ policy of the colonialists leading to communal division between India and Pakistan, which paved the foundation for whatever unity of the various nationalities continued in India.

But, a century long propagation of Hindurashtra concept, the RSS leading present BJP rule, has led to the third wave of assault on whatever unity is existing in this sub-continent, in spite of the comprador rule which survived through communal- caste appeasement policies. Whatever unity of Indian polity is still surviving is attacked by the Sangh Parivar using its divisive policies of Hindutva, frenzied efforts to create a Hindu vote bank. By unleashing Islamophobea, lynching of Muslims, military occupation of Kashmir and hate Pakistan campaign whatever religious inclusiveness survived are destroyed and communal division is taken to its peak; the frenzied imposition of corporatization and Hindu-Hindi-Hindustan slogan have cut at the roots of federalism as manifested through statements of even ruling class leaders of the Southern states; and now the successful Bharat Bandh on 2nd April in which many millions of SCs/STs along with their supporters and compatriots got mobilized has clearly shown the growing anger of the suppressed classes and sections who are challenging the attack on them in all fields by the Brahminical forces. The Indian brand of fascistic hegemony sought to be imposed by the Sangh Parivar is striking at the very root of the unity of India which is a multinational country. Along with its mad pursuit of neo-liberal policies, it is challenging and destroying the unity of the people of India. On all counts it should be resisted, isolated and defeated.

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.
