Photos from the protest outside the Indian embassy in Stockholm (1/5-20)

A group of people gathered outside the indian embassy yesterday. There were songs played, a speech held and slogans shouted. Embassy staff came to the entrance to complain. We asked the staff to open the door to talk but they refused. Instead a hostile man came out as people were leaving and he took a photo. Comrades stopped him from taking more photos calling him a “hindu fascist”. The embassy staff called the police and four cars came in high speed trying to find participants, but they couldn´t.

The following speech was held outside the embassy:

“We are here today under the slogan Stop India’s War on the People. Why do we use this quite broad slogan? Because we want to gather as many people as possible against the Indian ruling classes and its government.

We want to be a part of a resistance against their furious attacks on the people. Conducting massacres has a political cost, but it is quite low if no one knows. Today, the dominant image of India is still “the world’s largest democracy”.

India is ruled by a Hindu fascist government that sells the country and creates ever-increasing poverty.

-They propel fascist lynch mobs who murder, burn people alive with the rationale that they have damaged cows that are sacred to them.
-They have passed a law saying that Muslim refugees cannot become citizens of India.
-They are waging a war against the people of Kashmir and against the minorities in north-east India and against the adivasis in central India.

The war agianst the Naxalites is now being fought with 600,000 thousand troops.
-These troops shoot at crowds
-Conduct massacres
-Shooting with artillery against villages
-Rape and murder women

The Indian state imprisons those who openly criticize them and defend the people. They have imprisoned many intellectuals and even music artists.

One of those they have imprisoned is Saibaba who played an important role in spreading international solidarity for the people’s struggle in India. He was here in Sweden where we met him a few years ago.

Although he was wheelchair-bound, he traveled around different countries to talk about the struggle of the people. Saibaba is an incredibly knowledgeable and inspirational person and well known among anti-imperialist intellectuals in various parts of the world.

On May 9, 2014, he was arrested and is still being held under severe conditions and despite being severely ill.

Saibaba is a symbol of international solidarity.
Saibabai must be released!

What then do the Naxalites say about this situation?

They say there is a lot of aggression from the ruling classes but that it expresses that the enemy is desperate.

They write, among other things, like this in a document from last year:

-Let us successfully fulfill our role in speeding up the mobilization and united struggles of proletarian revolutionary forces, oppressed nationalities and oppressed people in order to wipe out the imperialists and reactionaries all over the world!

-Let us mobilize lakhs and crores of oppressed people into the
Protracted People’s War going on in the leadership of our Party and
expand the People’s War all over the country!

How, then, do we relate to this strongest revolutionary struggle in the world?

The international support for the people’s struggle in India today is rather weak. If we had 3-4 comrades who put their soul into the support work, we would certainly have a support work that very well would serve important political goals.

We should do it. Why?
-Because their fight is a torch of hope that lights new fires.
-Because their struggle is ours, because we are part of the same great anti-imperialist struggle.
-For the international solidarity is strengthening the movement in India and giving hope to the comrades who are fighting huge enemy.

Finally,

Support the struggle of the people in India!
Free Saibaba!

    The Hindoos butchered millions of Buddhists from the 3 century BC to 6 th century AD and then again millions of Muslims in 1947 ! The Indian PM himself killed 1000s of Muslims in Godhra ! The Hindoos wiped out the entire Buddhist religion from Kabul to Cape Comrim.

    Genocide comes naturally to the Hindoo ! The verses quoted by ISIS are mostly in the Hadeeths ! But the Hindoo version of ISIS is far more sophisticated and detailed in abhorrent minutae – in the SCRIPTURE (akin to the Quran). It is a duty of the Hindoo to carry out genocide and the white man is easily fooled by the supine,servile,menial,heathen and perfidious culture,mannerisms and sophisry of the Hindoo !

    I present the rationalisation and justification of genocide by the Hindoos ! THERE IS NO HOPE FOR THE LOWER CASTES IN INDIA !

    ISIS has a natural bond with Hindoos ! The conceot of Shariat is all inspired from the Hindoo Scriptures

    Sample 1 – Death to those that reject Vedas

    This deceptive vision shall wholly beguile the Daityas,so that, being led astray from the path of the Vedas, they “may be put to death”; for all gods, demons, or others, who shall be ” opposed to the authority of the Veda,shall perish by my might”, whilst exercised for the preservation of the world. .Vishnu Purana 3:17

    Sample 2 – Killing Atheists and Kaffirs

    Rig Veda 1:174:8 These thine old deeds new bards have sung, O Indra. Thou conqueredst, boundest many tribes for ever.Like castles thou hast “crushed the godless races”, and bowed the godless scorner’s deadly weapon.
    Rig Veda 3:24:1. AGNI, subdue opposing bands, and drive our enemies away.Invincible,”slay godless foes” give splendour to the worshipper.
    Atharva Veda 11:2:23 Homage be paid him with ten Sakvari verses who stands established in the air’s mid-region, “slaying non-sacrificing God-despisers”!
    Rig Veda 6:25:9 So urge our hosts together in the combats: “yield up the godless bands”, that fight against us.
