New Delhi, 4 Dec 2014 : More than two dozen political and social groups have demanded that the government should punish the perpetrators of the Babri Masjid demolition. They pledged on Thursday that on the eve of the 22nd anniversary of the demolition of Babri Masjid on 6th December, that they would continue struggle till justice has been done. They announced of holding a massive protest march in the capital on 6th December to press the demand for justice.
Addressing media persons here, President of Welfare Party of India S Q R Ilyas said it is not only shame that the Babri masjid was demolished but the perpetrators were still not punished. President of Lok Raj Sangathan Raghavan said the on this day, people belonging to different political parties and organizations committed to fighting for human rights and peoples empowerment, will hold a powerful protest rally in New Delhi. The rally is being held to demand that those who organized the demolition of this historical monument must be punished. The joint organisers of the rally demand that state terrorism including state sponsored genocides should be stopped once and for all, by building a just and peaceful society that will ensure prosperity and protection for all.
The entire operation to demolish Babri Masjid was a carefully planned act of the Indian ruling establishment. The executive, legislature and judiciary were fully involved in the demolition. Various political parties and other organizations of the ruling elite were entrusted with the task of inflaming passions amongst the people, dividing them on religious lines, to set the stage for the demolition. The rulers and their state deliberately spread the monstrous lie that “people wanted to demolish the historical mosque”.The fact however was that the people of our country, irrespective of their religious beliefs, were horrified at this terrible crime and totally opposed to it.
The demolition of Babri Masjid revealed that it is not the people but the Indian state which is communal. Far from fulfilling the duty of ensuring security and prosperity for the people, the state itself is guilty of organizing communal pogroms and massacres. State terrorism, the targeting of this or that community for genocidal massacres, has become a preferred weapon of those in power and their state to destroy the unity of our people.
On the occasion, Hafiz Manzoor Ali Khan Vice president, Social Democratic Party of India; Parvez Muhammed State Commitee Member, Popular Front of India; Adv ND Pancoli and Abdul Rasheed Agwan of All India Majlise Mushawarat also addressed the conference.
The organizations that will organize the rally included Lok Raj Sangathan, Popular Front of India, JNU Students Union, United Muslim Front, Jamaat Islami e Hind, AISA, Sikh Youth Forum, DSF, Left Collective, Citizens for Democracy, Sikh Forum, Social Democratic Party of India, SUCI (Communist), CPI(ML) Liberation, Communist Ghadar Party of India, CPIML (New Proletarian), Socialist Party of India, Welfare Party of India, Association for Protection of Civil Rights, All India Muslim Majlis e Mushawarat, All India Imam’s Council, National Patriotic Peoples Front, AIPWA, Purogami Mahila Sangathan, Hind Naujawan Ekta Sabha, Mazdoor Ekta Committee, Peoples Movement against UAPA, All India Sikh Conference, Nishant Natya Manch.
