What happened and happening in Hathras are horrific.  On 14th September night, a 19 year dalit girl was dragged out to nearby field from near her house, as she resisted she was thrashed, gang raped, her spine damaged under torture and thrown to the fields to die by four Thakur goons. After hours of search when she was found and taken to nearby police station in precarious condition, SHO refusing to file FIR, delaying her hospitalization for hours, doctors under orders from above not giving proper treatment, shifted to Safdarjung hospital after a week where she succumbs to injuries.  Though the girl complained of gang rape and told the names of the culprits police refuse to record. When the girl died, after a hurried post mortem, instead of handing over the body to family, under DM’s orders body taken to her village, and after surrounding her house and other dalit houses by hundreds of police men, detain all in their houses, burn the body to destroy all proof at 3 am on 30th September!  Journalists and activists of political parties trying to go to the village are forcefully stopped or detained declaring 144 in the whole area. While her family and neighbours are still detained and prevented from moving out of their houses, the  Thakur goons are allowed to demonstrate with threatening slogans and demanding the release of the culprits. The RSS parivar and the whole state machinery is seen distorting the case, even accusing the girl for everything and protecting the culprits, even after Allahabad High Court taking suo-moto case against the horrific incident.

 

What is happening under RSS led Modi-Yogi rule reminds us of the days of Brahmanical offensive under Adi-Sankara, in 8th century, killing thousands of Budhist Shramans, destroying Budh vihars, eliminating the Charvaks and Lokayats, burning down their books, and imposing Manusmrithi in the most barbarous form. Under it women should be detested, kept enslaved by men for fulfilling their lust and getting served well. All Sudra and Ati-Sudra women were reserved for Brahmins’ sexual plunder, and laws were made for it. Though some of the earlier Sudras have raised their economic status and behave like upper caste today, in every region their women had to satisfy the Brahmin-Thakurs, men had to work like slaves for these upper caste lords. Many of the neo- Brahmanical leaders of middle castes and dalit, Adivasi sections  forget their past under Brahmin-Thakur raj. In Bihar villages and many other places the Brahmin-Thakur landlords had the first night right of dalit brides till many of them were annihilated by the first wave of naxalites. That is why they organized many senas to protect themselves. Now the coming of Manuvadi Hindutua of RSS, these Brahmin-Thakur who have become capitalist landlords and neo rich sections want to re-establish the right to enslave dalit men by throwing out of whatever little reservation rights they have to their old  menial jobs and their sexual rights over dalit women. In different states in different form this new onslaught is taking place in newer forms. In UP under Yogi the Thakur raj has taken most horrific forms, In this they help the naked support  of the IAS-IPS lobby and top administration, police men also. Whether Mayavathi, or SP raj they had done it at low key, but under Modi-Yogi they are coming out to openly assert with  the still Brahmin-Thakur dominated political and administrative system. The Communists who recognize the need for caste annihilation and revolutionary social change and the dalits and other oppressed sections who  are prepared to pursue caste annihilation, women’s liberation, educational, economic uplifting  of the women and all oppressed should join hands to overthrow the barbarous domination of the caste system and corporate plunder for social revolution to create a casteless, genuinely secular, democratic and egalitarian society.

Today, the curtain came down on the drama enacted by consecutive governments for the last 28 years after the criminal act of demolition of Babri Masjid on 6th December, 1992, in broad day light with millions of people hearing the extortions of Uma Bharathi, LK Advani and others to the tens of thousands of the hoodlums mobilized by RSS, many of whom were staying at Ayodhya for many days and getting trained how to demolish such an old structure, and thousands of them rushing up to the tombs and start demolishing, with the large numbers of state police, para-miitary and military forces mobilized to implement the assurance given to the Supreme Court by the state and central governments that the babri Masjid shall be protected at any cost, standing like silent witnesses to the barbaric act. The governments at centre, the investigation agencies and the judiciary were engaged in finding out the culprits. Today reading out the 2,000-page order, CBI judge Surendra Kumar Yadav acquitted all 32 accused in the 1992 Babri Masjid demolition case. The court observed that the demolition was not pre-planned and evidences are not strong. Earlier, the former CJI, Ranjan Gogoi,  reading out the  Supreme Court order handing over the  2.71 acre land where the Babri Masjid stood to the very same criminals of RSS parivar who had committed the criminal act of demolishing the Masjid. Today the honourable judge for the CBI found no body is responsible for the demolition and acquitted all the criminals. This is the way fascism works, and CBIs and Judges works. Decisions are taken in the  office of Modi and everyone will implement it.

 

It is high time we clearly say Down with Manuvadi RSS Neo-Fascism and strengthen our efforts to overthrow it.

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.
