It is on record that on 5th May 2017, a horrifying campaign of communal violence was unleashed at Shabbarpur village of Saharanpur, targeting the homes and property of Dalit residents. Men, women and children were fatally attacked. The state administration, the police and security forces were initially mute witnesses to the attacks and have since then begun harassing the victims. An atmosphere of communal tension is prevailing there.

Com. R.K. Sharma of SUCI (Communist), Com. Santosh Rai of CPI(M-L) Liberation, Com Nathu of CPI(M), Com. Nizam from RCP, Com. Dharmendra Kumar of Forward Bloc and Com. Santosh Kumar of the Communist Ghadar Party of India addressed the demonstration.

All the speakers unequivocally condemned the attack on Dalits.The speakers pointed out that the Saharanpur incident was neither the first nor the last of its kind in the country. The practice of dividing people on the basis of community, religion, language and area, targeting people of a particular community or faith, spreading lies and rumours about them and organizing genocide is a preferred and tested method of rule of our ruling class, notwithstanding the party in power. Our rulers are intensifying the attacks on the working class in the interest of augmenting the profits of the biggest Indian and foreign monopolies. Debt-ridden peasants are facing the bullets of the state. Thousands of youth are being rendered jobless. The ruling class is organizing these incidents of communal violence in order to divert the attention of the workers, peasants and youth from these problems. The bourgeois media plays its role in spreading rumours. All this happens under the supervision of the state, its institutions and security forces. The 1984 genocide of Sikhs, the communal bloodbath in 1992-93 following the demolition of Babri Masjid and the genocide of Muslims in Gujarat in 2002 are all examples of this.

Condemning such communal attacks, which are organized across the country, speakers pointed out that it is the monopoly capitalist class that is principally responsible for vitiating the unity of and peace among people. Instead of guaranteeing the prosperity and security of the people, the State is blatantly violating its mandate. We have to bring about such a state and political system that is accountable to the people if the prosperity and security of society has to be ensured.

A representative committee of the parties in the demonstration submitted a petition to the Home Minister demanding that immediate steps be taken to treat the injured, to award compensation and to rebuild the homes destroyed, to mete out stringent punishment to those found guilty of organizing the communal violence and to ensure the restoration of peace in the area.

Working class representatives from all over the country are gathering on 4th September, at a time when a titanic struggle is going on in our country. The struggle is between the majority of toiling and exploited people and a minority of exploiters. It is between the majority whose labour expands wealth and the minority who enjoy the fruits of wealth creation on the basis of their private property and positions of power.
