Vi skall inte låta oss luras av etiketter

I texter om Indien upprepas ofta att Indien är “världens största demokrati”. Om man betraktar saker och ting endast utifrån hur det är etiketterat så blir världen helt obegriplig. Rimligen måste man i politiken inte endast se till de formella utan främst till det verkliga. Vilka demokratiska principer i den indiska konstitutionen försvarar den indiska staten? Inga svarar Azad som blev mördad 2010.

In which part of India is the Constitution prevailing? In Dantewada, Bijapur, Kanker, Narayanpur, Rajnandgaon? In Jharkhand, Orissa? In Lalgarh, Jangalmahal? In the Kashmir Valley? Manipur? Where was your Constitution hiding for 25 long years after thousands of Sikhs where massacred? When thousands of Muslims were decimated? When lakhs (hundred thousands) of peasants are compelled to commit suicides?


When thousands of people are murdered by state-sponsored Salwa Judum gangs? When adivasi women are gangraped? When people are simply abducted by uniformed goons? Your Constitution is a piece of paper that does not even have the value of a toilet paper for the vast majority of the Indian people.” – Azad
