Communal violence in India has always been organized and planned with a definite aim

Yesterday was the 30th anniversary of assassination of (former Prime Minister) Indira Gandhi. She brought death and destruction during her life and she brought death and destruction in her death.
Thousands of people across India were killed by the goondas led by Congress leaders. In Delhi alone, right under the nose of seat of power, thousands of Sikhs were massacred by the gangs led by Congress leaders such as Kamal Nath, Jagdish Tytler, Sajjan Kumar and others. These massacres were well organized and premeditated. Needless to add, guilty have not been punished to this day.

This was not the first time Congress goons had organized a massacre. They have a long history of such massacres. For instance, in 1969, they drenched the streets of Ahmedabad with Muslim blood and killed thousands of people. Nobody has been punished to this day for that crime.

Gujarat massacres of the 2002 were continuation of the massacres initiated by Congress leaders over the years all over the country.BJP and others were following the same template. One does not expect leaders to be punished for these massacres either.

Communal violence in India has always been organized and planned. It is never spontaneous. Always, following elements will be involved: Goondas: They are the henchmen of the rich and powerful and enjoy their protection; Police: They either close their eyes or actively join in the mayhem; Local Administration: It turns a blind eye or encourages massacres at the behest of rulers and Political leaders: Leaders of this or that party, especially the one in power, lead the goons in these massacres directly or indirectly.
One investigation into communal violence in India pointed out that there has never been a “spontaneous” communal riot in India since 1880s when they were first started to be organized by the British and their collaborators.

Some people have pointed out that communal violence in India is actually state terrorism and has definite aim. History of more than 100 years proves this. All the incidents of communal violence reveal the hand of state and its agencies behind them in one shape or other. Delhi 1984, destruction of Babri Masjid or Gujarat massacres of 2002, each one of it is clearly an evidence of this.

People have been successfully able to stop these massacres where they are organized. For instance, residents of Ram Rahim Nagar in Ahmedabad have not let anything happen there since 1969. Similarly even in Delhi in 1984, there were many areas where people relying on their own unity and forces did not let such attacks come to a pass.

On the 30th anniversary of the Sikh massacres, victims are still asking for Justice which has been eluding them and the government of the day once again has shamelessly announced compensations. Why can’t they understand that the victims and their families want Justice and not compensation?
There are suggestions that peoples’ tribunals and courts be set up to punish the guilty. These proposals have to be considered seriously as there is no hope for Justice from any part of the state including the judiciary.

  1. I am a non Sikh from South . It so happened that I was in New Delhi on that day proceeding to udyog Bhavan for my DGTD permission. I left the udyog bhavan building as soon as I reached and walked back to Janakpuri as there was total riots and madness.

    In mortal fear I was witnessing the most ugly face of humanity. I myself would have seen 12 murders ghastly as they were. My parents were thrown out of Lahore during partition. They nursed the bitterness throughout their lives. I wondered if i would see an actual massacre and I had my misfortune when I saw it on 31 st october 1984.

    Why God made me see it and remember it in my life. I cannot forget the shocking scene of a half burnt and beaten man with his hair still burning and still alive, his eyes looked at me. I could not help as I myself was running. However I looked back after half a minute. he was still looking at me. I hope he understood my predictament in not helping his lost cause.

    I recollected 1947.Lahore. Till late no one left as all thought it would be with India. Then the announcement and the burning of my cousins in the afternoon and the fleeing.

    How much my parents would have seen and suffered. Can Man ever become Godly?? Why are we fighting over religion, caste and ethnicity.

    I can only meditate on emptiness , as all religions have had their difficult times of Joy, Sorrow, Abuse, cruelty cruelty to others….Humanity on the whole is mad.

  2. The best thing about this article is that it takes off the clothes of the so called secular Congress which in reality is the mother of communalism in modern India.
