Justice for Rohith Vemula: The Struggle Continues….

The following article is written by a student of Hyderabad Central University and member of New Socialist Alternative (CWI-India). It documents the experiences of the students in the past few days and their determination to fight against the administration against all odds.

Certainly the return of Appa Rao marks a new low for the HRD ministry and the Central govt who have not uttered anything of significance on the whole incident. But one thing is clear, they want to crush this budding student/ youth movement that has grown rapidly into a significant force ever since Rohith Vemula’s institutional murder by suicide. read more

Book Review: Blood On My Hands

From reading circles to raising slogans, anything questioning the present regime is now an act of sedition. Even voting for a non-BJP government to power inside this limited democracy is an anti-national act. Not just the Muslims but every one is in an obligation to prove oneself as a nationalist.

In a multi ethnic, multi cultural union like India being a nationalist means to conform to the holy cows created by the state. From cricket to capitalism, any one who presents an alternate view is a Naxal or a Maoist. Both BJP and Congress are guilty of promoting such a mind set. One such holy cow is the Indian Army. read more
