Senior journalist, editor and activist Gauri Lankesh, 55, was shot dead by unidentified assailants at the entrance of her home in Bengaluru West on 05th evening! She was fighting against communalism and RSS divisive propaganda.
Her murder is openly being celebrated by RSS supporters!
And there are people, parties, ideologues looking forward for revolutions through parliamentary path? As if they will win Parliamentary election and the fascists, bourgeois pillars of the bloody democracy will watch them change the property relation; from capitalist mode of production to socialist mode of production!
Examples of Chile (Where Allende’s regime was toppled by the CIA aided Chilean Army & big capitalist & their agents) and at home in Delhi, where AAP government, even engaged in bourgeois reforms, is not permitted to work even an inch!
Some try to convince you that even Lenin wanted the European Communists to participate in the bourgeois elections, even though the Parliaments had become redundant historically as far as people’s democracy was concerned.
But same Lenin says, Parliament is not redundant politically and whenever possible, the Left must use it for its own promotion, for raising the class consciousness, unity & struggle. Mind it, using an institution and making that institution as the prime goal or even as the main path for the revolution differentiates between the revolutionaries & revisionists!
In today’s India, revolution is a historical necessity, but any extreme, like predetermined violence or parliamentary path is doomed to fail. We need mass movement (under the leadership of the working class), on political line through class struggle to replace capitalism, based on exploitation, which breeds all evils, by socialism, to have a society based on equality, brotherhood and freedom!
