Dear Comrade, US President Mr. Barak Obama is going to grace the India’s Republic Day Celebration on 26th January 2015 as a Chief Guest of the Function. The main agenda of the present fascist communal Government of India for inviting US president as a Chief Guest in the celebration is nothing but a strong message of consolidating anti-people reactionary alliance of the Imperialist world. We the proletarian revolutionary people of the world must unite and prepare to fight the Imperialism.
So I Therefore would like to request the genuine revolutionary party and citizen of United States to support Revolutionary movement of Manipur. International Committee of Solidarity for Manipur Revolution calls for “International Protest Day against Indian Expansionism” under the banner of “End the Indian Occupation in Manipur” on 26th January 2015 at New York, USA. State violence in India is institutionalized through a culture of institutional impunity to the police, the paramilitary and the army. In June 1984, Thousands of Sikh People were killed and hundreds of Sikh women were gang raped in the sanctity of golden temple by the Indian Army during ‘Operation Blue Star’.
In Jammu and Kashmir Thousands of People were killed and In the village of Kuman-Poshpura in Kashmir valley, about 100 women were mass raped by the Indian Army in a single night of 23rd Feb 1991, Hundreds of peoples disappeared. Hundreds of Muslim People were killed and hundreds women were gang raped by security forces during the anti-Muslim riots in Gujarat in 2002, as the then Chief Minister Narendra Modi just watched. Almost Ten Thousand of people have been killed in Manipur under the Armed Forces Special powers act 1958 is an example of Indian Army’s on-going war on people in the South Asian Sub-Continent which is presently kept under Indian Colony. Operation Green Hunt is another example of hypocrisy of the so-called “largest democracy in the world”. Is really mean India a republic?
India is a Prison house of various nation and nationalities. Under the signboard of globalization, structural adjustment and open market economy; world imperialism has announced its global agenda to further intensify the domination, exploitation and oppression of the people. The agenda reflects a new spiral of crisis of world imperialism bringing about the inevitability of even more misery, horror, devastation and war, on a world scale. The proletariat and the oppressed people of the world continue to resist this agenda by raising revolutionary struggles, against imperialism and the subservient reactionary ruling classes of different countries, generating a new wave of people struggles all over the world, particularly in the oppressed countries. As Mao had formulated, the oppressed countries constitute the storm centers of world revolution and revolution is the main trend in the world today.
The region of South Asia continues to provide a concentrated expression of this truth. South Asia, with more than 1/5th of the world population, is a simmering volcano, as recognized by the imperialists themselves. All the major contradictions in the region are intensifying and call for revolutionary solutions. National liberation movements are continuing in Kashmir, Assam, Nagaland, Manipur and other South Asian Sub continent. Various people’s struggles against imperialism and the reactionary ruling classes are also surging forward. India continues to forcibly maintain the oppressed nationalities within Indian hegemony. Not only does the Indian army of occupation crush their just demands with utmost brutality, they have been pitting one section of the people against the other to drown their just struggles in oceans of blood.
This is to be seen in Nagaland, Manipur, Assam, Kashmir and Maoist liberated areas of Mainland India. Naga regiments are deploying at Maoist Liberated area to oppress the Dalit and Adhivasis people and Indian Army are deploying in Nagaland, Manipur, Assam, Tripura and Meghalaya to oppress the Indigenous Peoples. The irresistible advance of the New Democratic Revolution and Protracted People’s War in India led by The Communist Party of India (Maoist) is changing the political geography and revolutionary dynamics of South Asia. The emerging new wave of protracted people’s war is clearly visible in India.
The Indian ruling classes under the leadership of the BJP, sharpening their offensive against the on-going protracted people’s war and various nationality movements in South East Himalayan Region which are now kept under their Colony. Various operational command units have been formed to suppress these struggles and the central government is directly coordinating all the various operations. The BJP, a Hindu chauvinist force, announced that an integrated and comprehensive strategy to root out the Maoist movement in the country would be soon finalized. The ‘usual’ encounters and fake encounters (of both revolutionaries and common people) are on with not a single day passing in the movement areas without cordon and search & combing operations, areas dominations, loot, destruction, mayhem, tortures and atrocities on people by the government forces.
Attacks, political and physical, on any kind of opposition, trampling of civil rights and revolutionary workers’, peasants’, students’ and women’s, threats and attacks on revolutionary and democratic organisations and severe repression in various forms on political prisoners incarcerated in prisons all over the country are continuing unabated. They are now going to transform the state into a fascist apparatus and adopting to crush all types of democratic movements in India, surpassing all its predecessors. It has also started functioning as the gendarme of US imperialism in order to fulfill its expansionist ambitions, suppressing people’s movements in the sub-continent. Indian rulers have been even more crudely intervening in the internal affairs of neighboring countries like Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and Maldives. The recent visit of Indian Prime Minister at various parts of the Asia and US is a new step to consolidate its political and economic hegemony in the South Asian region.
The Indian expansionist state backed by world imperialism, particularly US imperialism, constitutes the common enemy of the people of South Asia. This provides a concrete political basis for fighting the common enemy is become a Revolutionary necessary of South Asian sub continents. Without Fighting the Imperialist Indian State there will be no advancement of Revolutionary movement in Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Sri-Lanka and all so called North East Part of India which are under colonial rule. The increasing collusion between Indian Expansionism and National Bourgeois of Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, Maldives and Sri Lanka can be clearly seen in the politics of the region in recent SAARC Summit held at Kathmandu on 26th and 27th November 2014. Indian Media’s clearly mentioned that India is no more in the position of Big Brother but as a Big Boss of the South Asian Countries.
The Reactionary Government of Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and are supported by the Indian Reactionary Government and Indian rulers have been working as prop of US Imperialism in Asia. The Indian rulers seek total domination of the countries of South Asia acting as the props of the US in this region. It is very clear that without fighting Imperialist India, there will be no advancement of Revolutionary Movement in entire South Asian sub-continent. The North East part of India which is under Indian colony has been controlled by imposing the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (1958). The AFSPA has its roots in British colonial legislation dating back to the mid-19th century. More directly, it was based on a British colonial ordinance, called the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Ordinance promulgated in 1942 to assist in suppressing the “Quit India Movement”, a phase in the movement for Indian independence. The Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act, 1958 (AFSPA) a law operative in “disturbed areas”, including large parts of the Northeast region of India and Jammu Kashmir, has facilitated grave human rights abuses, including extrajudicial execution, “disappearance”, rape and torture.
Declaring an area a “disturbed area” and granting the military extensive powers is in practice imposing an undeclared emergency regime. The AFSPA has not only led to human rights violations, but it has allowed members of the armed forces to perpetrate abuses with impunity. They have been shielded by clauses in the AFSPA that prohibit prosecutions from being initiated without permission from the central government. Such permission is rarely granted.
The AFSPA empowers security forces to arrest and enter property without warrant and gives the security forces power to shoot to kill in circumstances where members of the security forces are not at imminent risk. It’s a license to kill and rape when they want. It facilitates impunity because no person can start legal action against any members of the armed forces for anything done under the Act, or purported to be done under the Act, without permission of the Central Government. We all know that the people of Manipur, Nagaland, Mizoram, Assam, Tripura and Meghalaya are the most vulnerable victims of Indian counter Insurgency Operation.
Thousands of beloved Peoples have been killed by the heartless Indian Armed Forces. Only in Manipur 8983 (Eight Thousand Nine Hundred and Eighty Three) beloved people had killed by the Indian Armed Forces under the Armed Forces Special Powers act 1958. The death toll is very uncertain that it’s a biggest threat to the Indigenous population of Manipur. Manipur have only 16,000,00 (1.6 Million) indigenous population in Manipur which control by the One hundred Thousand (100,000) of Indian democratic Killers equipped with sophisticated weapons like AK 47 Riffles, Insas-Riffles, 80 mm Motors, MP 5 Rifles and so on. So I Therefore once again would like to request the genuine revolutionary party and citizen of United States to support Revolutionary movement of Manipur. International Committee of Solidarity for Manipur Revolution calls for “International Protest Day against Indian Expansionism” on 26th January 2015 in front of the office of the Consulate General of India, New York. The Protest will be held under the banner of “End the Indian Occupation in Manipur”.
Thanks and regards,
International Protest Day against Indian Expansionism
