Farmers keep the flame of resistance against neo-fascism alive.

With the expansion of the movement by consolidating democratic forces from other states in support of peasant agitation, the movement is on the verge of creating the effect of an inferno. The peasantry of Punjabi has inspired the peasants of other states, particularly Uttar Pradesh and Haryana, to join the ranks of the movement. We must salute the peasantry for having so heroically resisted the repression of the state unleashed in a crescendo.

The most significant development is the influence of the Bharatiya Kisan Union under the leadership of Rakesh Tikait, which carried out the Mahapanachayats and is in the process of laying the seeds for many more. Tikait may belong to the ruling class, but he gathers strength with the utmost vigor, to abolish the 3 agricultural laws and achieve the minimum support price. A mahapanchayat may not be a true revolutionary democratic organ as it is based on a traditional system, but it can nonetheless be a channel through which struggles for revolutionary resistance could be developed. Most progressively, the movement is now taking an All-Indian form or character. Like the waves of an ocean, the farmers are now charging from the BJP-ruled states to create a basis for the polarization of the anti-Hindutva apolitics. The staging of the first mahpanchayat in Punjab in Jagraon was of historical importance. Finally, there was a big boost when tribesmen even joined the ranks a few days ago.

The Chakka Jam on February 6th had a highly electrifying effect by igniting the spark of agitation, despite all attempts by those in power to suppress it. The BJP was confronted in its own den, which spoke volumes about the death-defying spirit of agitating peasants.

Most heroically, the democratic forces among the peasants rose again after the BJP government's conspiracy in Delhi to sabotage the agitation. It is noteworthy that the basis was even broadened through the continuous reinforcement of the agitators and the greater participation from neighboring states. It is truly remarkable how they have come together to regroup and confront the forces of the state. A strong core has formed which further increases the resistance of the peasants.

It is encouraging to see more and more sections of artists and athletes support the movement in Punjab, as well as Bollywood stars like Sonakshi Sinha and her father Shatrugan Sinha. Unfortunately, people like Amitabh Bachan, Sachin Tendulkar or Akshay Kumar have completely turned their backs on the movement. There couldn't be a more vivid example of how the Bollywood film industry and even the sport of cricket are being co-opted or subordinated to the corporate world: movie stars and cricketers practically sell themselves as slaves to patronize globalization and are one integral part of the neo-fascist social order.

The voices of Rajinder Singh from the Kirti Kisan Union as well as Joginder Singh Ugrahan and Shingara Singh Mann from BKU (Ugrahan) let the hearts of the farmers shine in a crescendo with the spirit of resistance.

It is encouraging to see that in several parts of Punjab the revolutionary democratic forces have waved the flag of democratic support to an even higher degree after the Delhi setback.

The forces of the BKU (Ugrahan) and the Kirti Kisan Union have made the greatest contribution to the galvanization of the democratic forces. Both perform exemplary mass work, whereby the flame of resistance flares up in dizzying proportions.

The Punjab Khet Mazdoor Union is holding a three-day dharna in several districts on the issue of the minimum support price. It is very progressive that the rural working class organizations work day and night to combine the struggle of the peasants in Delhi with the daily life of the Dalite farm workers. Significant protests have also been made by the Zameen Prapt Sangarsh Committee and the Krantikari Pendu Mazdoor Union, and the interview with the leader of the Punjab Khet Mazdoor Union, Laxman Singh Sewewala, is very revealing for any democratic cadre the link between the agitation or the farmers' demands with that of the Dalit agricultural workers. The PMKU has planned a conference in Bhana village on February 20th.

Among the student and youth sections, the Punjab Students Union, Naujwan Bharat Sabha, Punjab Radical Students Union, Punjab Students Union (Shaheed Randhawa) are consistently mobilizing the forces to support the struggling peasants with flag marches and street corner meetings. Qualitatively, they lit the torch of resistance in many areas of the Punjab.

The sad thing is that the forces of the student democratic organization and the students for society are still being washed down with the Sikh identity line and not delimiting themselves from local politics. It is unfortunate that, however progressive, certain writers still portray the struggle of the peasants as that of the Sikh peasantry.

The issue that has burned the hearts of peasant lakhs is the imprisonment of Dalit women activist Nadeep Kaur. Leaders have organized grassroots rallies highlighting how such events are part of the rulers' conspiracy.

Whatever the differences, Joginder Singh Ugrahan firmly believes that maximum forces should be brought together for the common cause of eradicating the agricultural bills. Forces like the BKU (Ugrahan) and the Kirti Kisan Union have welcomed the mahapanchayats organized by the Uttar Pradesh BKU leader Rajesh Tikait, but the democratic revolutionary leaders expressed concern that the peasant movement does not lag behind the dictates of the ruling class who cultivates economism and that Tikait, while pursuing democratic demands, has been influenced by the politics of regionalists, upper caste and Hindus.

The movement must be careful not to fall victim to Gandhian tendencies which hinder revolutionary militant resistance or are tainted by religious or casteistic undertones. The peasants, even on the broadest front, must not allow themselves to be influenced by the leaders of the opposition parties, and indeed the sword must be sharpened for real class resistance. The agitation should help the peasants to sharpen their awareness of the distracting and anti-popular socio-political order. There is always a risk that Leader Tikait will become a personality cult.

The struggle is now reminiscent of a virtual war of attrition in which neither the government nor the peasants are willing to give in. The ruling BJP party has left no stone unturned to denigrate the agitators as anti-national conspirators. However, it is encouraging to see that the democratic forces continue to stand firm and refute the lies of the rulers.

A long effort has to be made to attract industrial workers and government employees to attract small traders. What continues to be most inspiring is the contribution made by women.

Therefore, in the months to come, the peasant movement must ally itself with great discretion with all democratic forces, but distance itself from the tendencies of the ruling class. The tone is set for massive anti-fascist polarization, with even forces like Congress and the Aam Admi Party joining the ranks. A sizeable cadre was also recruited from the left-wing parties. At no time before have so many forces formed a united front against Hindutva fascism. A balance has to be struck between economic and political demands in order not to let the movement become diffuse. The agitation could also be a platform for the peasant community to improve their education about the neo-fascist character of the political system, which basically only wears the mask of a real democracy.

Whether the Mahapanchayats will become a platform for the opposition of the ruling class to consolidate their base or for the revolutionary democratic forces to penetrate deeper layers can only be guessed at.

What is still sad is that there is very minimal support from the educated or intellectual circles, a large part of which is on the side of the Modi government. Still, it has shaken the pro-BJP intellectuals in their own backyard and sent shivers down their spines. A separate revolutionary mass platform should be built to give solidarity and sharpen the struggle.

Surkh Rekha editor Pavel Kussa is quoted as saying: "PM Modi calling the fighting people Andolan-jeevi is part of the same fascist attack that the government has been imprisoning intellectuals and democratic rights activists under. It is an attempt to create confusion in people's minds about the fighting men who have devoted their lives to fighting to protect the interests of the people. This is also an attempt to describe the peasants' struggle as being captured by these elements. "

"In reality, the agitations of the masses are real obstacles in the rulers 'course to sell the land to the domestic and foreign robbers (corporates). These roaring voices of struggle shine like rays of hope in the land and create obstacles in the rulers' nefarious plans .

Each lively and powerful voice should unite to repel that poisonous arrow of Modi and proclaim loudly that struggle is the only way for the prosperity of the people of our country and that we aim to turn people into agitators for the betterment of their lives. The fight is indispensable for the protection of work and therefore also for our lives. We are agitators and we uphold the democratic right to fight. "

REPORTS FROM TRIBUNE NEWS

Bhartiya Kisan Union chairman Rakesh Tikait said Friday that the farmers' next goal is to add 40 lakh tractors to the ongoing agitation and organize "kisan panchayats" across the country to attract more people in support of their call to mobilize the repeal of three agricultural laws.

Tikait also revealed plans by peasant leaders to hold meetings in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's home state, Gujarat, and said protesters in Delhi would not return home until the center "reaches an agreement" with them.

He called on the protesting farmers to be ready to "walk" and said that the center should accept their demands.

Tikait spoke on Friday at a meeting of the "Sarva Jatiya Kisan Majdoor Panchayat" organized by Dalal Khap-84 on the border between Bahadurgarh and Tikri. Other peasant leaders, including Gurnam Singh Charuni, also took part in the panchayat.

"Kisan mahapanchayats that are being organized these days are working to connect the people with the agitation of the peasants, so such panchayats are now being organized across the country to get more support from other states. march into Delhi, "said Tikait, who also blamed the government for the violence in Delhi during the Republic Day parade on January 26th."

Not only farmers, but people from all walks of life took part in Punjab's first "kisan mahapanchayat" here on Thursday. Women also took part in large numbers. Excited by the massive turnout, Sanyukt Kisan Morcha leader BS Rajewal claimed that the determination of the peasants camped on Delhi's borders has shaken the Modi government, "which is now trying to find a face-saving formula to get out of it to get out of the mess it had created by the agrarian laws. "

Defense Minister Rajnath Singh said on Thursday that the Union government is ready to openly discuss the new laws with the farmers' leaders and to change them if necessary.

He said the agitation had "woken up" the whole nation and that the international community was also watching developments in India with great interest. "The government is keen to break the mandi system by allowing free trade in food to leave the farmers at the mercy of the big business houses," asserted Rajewal.

He said the farmers would hold candlelight marches on February 14th to honor the Pulwama martyrs and celebrate February 16 as "kisan-mazdoor day" in memory of Sir Chhotu Ram. Other leaders, SS Dharamkot, KS Sandhu, Manjit Dhaner, Nirbhai S Dhudike, HS Lakhowal and JS Ugrahan, vowed to lead the agitation to its logical end. Dhaner claimed it was no longer a peasant struggle. "With the majority of the people behind the farmers, it has become a mass movement," he said. Ugrahan exhorted the people to prepare for a long battle. "The government is trying to impose a failed model of the agricultural system on farmers around the world. Over 80 percent of farmers, especially smallholders, will lose their land ownership to corporations because of the laws," he said.

Over 80 percent of farmers, especially smallholders, will lose their land ownership to corporations because of the laws, "he said.

To describe the prime minister's fight against anti-agricultural laws as the fight of some agitators is an insult to the historical Kisan Morcha - Jaswinder Longowal

In a speech on the stage of the BKU (Ekta Ugraha) near Pakora Chowk in New Delhi on February 8, the organization's country chairman, Jaswinder Singh Longowal, condemned Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Instead of repealing the law and responding to the law change argument, he said that it is not about changing small mistakes in the laws because those laws are against the peasants and the land and for shamelessness. So the prime minister should stop singing that tune. He said it was an insult to the peasant movement when Prime Minister Narendra Modi in parliament today urged peasants to stand on the front lines in Delhi against anti-agrarian laws. They said that those who protest for their rights are intelligent, conscious citizens of the country. Those who fight by making people aware of their rights.

Farmer leader Jaswant Singh Tolawal said the prime minister is making false claims about the welfare of farmers and workers. He said that the welfare of the country cannot be said by bringing relief to a few very wealthy people. The soil reality of the people in the country is something different. The debts of the peasants and workers are constantly increasing. Suicides are on the rise due to credit and economic hardship. The farmers' land is being sold. People do not have adequate nutrition, health or education. The spokesman said the government should repeal all three black laws for the real welfare of farmers by making false claims, the 2020 Electricity Amendment Act and the Fines Act for Burning Crops, all crops in all states by setting profitable procurement prices, the constitutional Guarantee procurement, the public distribution system for all poor villagers and townspeople, stop empires from entering the agricultural sector, and eliminate all loans to farmers and workers due to the wrong policies of the government. Today's meeting was chaired by Professor Virpal Kaur, Harpreet Kaur Jethuke, Amandeep Mahalans, Harbans Singh Lada, Sukhbinder Singh Khudian, Harnek Singh Demru, Hardev Singh Kularan, Hardev Singh Ghagga, Barjinder Singh Sarkar Mahima, leaders of the Kisan Struggle Committee and Sukhwant Singh Valtoha Haryana the leader of Chitra Singh Fogat also addressed.

Previously, the peasants had driven the democratic resistance to a crescendo and shown the indignation at the boiling point. The scenes were reminiscent of a huge spark that bloomed everywhere. On the occasion of the nationwide Chakka Jam of the farmers' organizations, the Indian Kisan Union (Ekta Ugraha) had previously blocked the roads in 33 locations in 15 districts of Punjab

CHAKKA JAM IMPACT

In 33 locations in 15 districts at the invitation of Chakka jam across the country by the Indian Kisan Union (Ekta Ugraha) a protest against the conspiracy and suppression of Modi's BJP government moved. A spark practically started a prairie fire. Important roads are closed

from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. Giving this information, the secretary general of the organization Sukhdev Singh Kokri Kalan said that there will be permanent protests for 129 days in 13 of these locations. A total of around two and a half lakh farmers, workers, youth, women and children took part.Speakers speaking at various locations exposed the administration's conspiracies, including building tall, wide concrete walls erected by thugs under the umbrella of administration forces to attack the agitators. They called for all three black agriculture laws, the 2020 Electricity Act and Parali Regulations to be repealed; a legal guarantee for the procurement of all crops at profitable support prices across the country and the introduction of a public distribution system. A spokesman said that the unity of the hard-working people is the only one who recognizes the government's conspiracy and guarantees ultimate victory. He expressed that the situation of conflict could be re-created by the government over the peasants who are clinging to various borders of Delhi. Therefore the small and large convoys of thousands of peasant-worker brothers and sisters should be sent to the places with daily reinforcements in the direction of Delhi. Khalistani or other community elements should also be condemned for breaking up the government's conspiracy. The spokesman strongly condemned the change in the railway route before Rohtak to force farmers to take trains to Delhi and advised farmers to come with their vehicles. He said the volunteers are being trained to keep the culprits away from the front line. He invited that against this conspiracy and the unemployment solution the permanent fronts that are being built in 42 locations in front of company houses, toll booths, large shopping malls and the homes of BJP leaders throughout Punjab should also be expanded and strengthened. The unity of the farm workers should be strengthened even more broadly. Every hard working family in villages and towns should be encouraged to go to the Delhi Morcha. Other keynote speakers to speak today are Deputy President Janak Singh Bhutal, State Organization Secretary Hardeep Singh Tallewal, Sukhjit Singh Kothaguru, Ram Singh Bhanibagha, Jagtar Singh Kalajhar, Sunil Kumar Bhodipura, Harjinder Singh Baggi, Gurmeet Singh Kishanpura, Jaspal Singh Nang Singh Ghudani, Kuldeep Singh Mattenangal, Jasvir Singh Gandiwind, Mohan Singh Nakodar, Lakhwinder Singh.

In an address to a huge gathering at Tikkri border kissan Morcha, led by B.K.U. (Ugrahan), Supreme Court attorney Bhanoo Partap said the farmers' disappearance so far is a public safety question mark. He said that the Delhi police are trying to terrify the farmers by showing the pictures of farmers who have reached Lal Qila.

The organization's country secretary, Shingara Singh Mann, said that after its attempts to defame the peasants' struggle failed, the central government is now trying to defame them using the tweets of cricketers like Sachin Tendulakar or movie stars. He said that some actors who played heroic roles for the peasants in films are now acting as villains by playing into the hands of the rulers. He said that yesterday's road blockade in many states in our country refuted the claims of Agriculture Minister Narinder Singh Tomar that it was agitation by one state only. If he and the central government had any morals left, they should repeal these laws immediately. With the support of Punjab Finance Minister Manpreet Singh Badal and MLA Pritam Singh KotBhai, he condemned the planned attack on farmers protesting at the Lehra Bega toll booth, and called for strict action against the culprits. He also appealed to the youth to recognize the fundamentalist steps taken by the Modi government and to protect the non-religious character of the Kissan movement.

The gathering was also attended by Gurbhagat Singh Bhlaiyana, Sandeep Cheema, Harpreet Kaur Jethuke and K.D. addressed from Hissar.

 

SUPPORT PROGRAMS OF SOLIDARITY IN PUNJAB

Some kind of story was written in Punjab, which held its first mahapanchayat on February 11, 2021 at the grain market in the city of Jagraon, Ludhiana district. According to The Tribune, 25,000 to 30,000 people gathered at the event to hear the speeches of the farmers' leaders. It's hard to find an adjective that does justice to the intensity of the participants, whose hearts bubbled over as if a great spark had been kindled within them.

Various people came with tractors, cars, SUVs, buses and trucks to the area where police had reinforced security, NDTV reports.

On February 12th, at the invitation of the Indian Kisan Union Ugraha, a rally and an economic protest against the BJP government took place in the village of Gurusar Jalal (Bathinda), calling for the release of the labor leader Naudeep Kaur. Nuajwan Bharat Sabha leader Balkaran Singh and Master Sukhmander Singh spoke at the rally. The people shouted strong slogans against the Modi government and called for tougher action in the ongoing struggle of the peasants.

A group of tribal farmers who came to Delhi Morcha from Jharkhand on February 10th expressed their solidarity with the struggle by taking a clip of BKU Ekta (Ugraha) President Joginder Singh Ugraha, leader of the tribal protest against colonialism Birsa Munda, handed over. The presence of the legacy of Birsa Munda on the stage decorated in Gulab Kaur Nagar, the traitor of the national liberation struggle against English colonialism, conveyed the message of the need for a joint struggle between Punjabi peasants and tribal peasants.

Young people in Bathinda, led by the Naujwan Bharat Sabha, called for true patriotism on February 9, instead of the so-called patriotism advocated by the BJP government. The BJP's betrayal of the countryside was clearly portrayed in front of the youth gathered in Ambedkar Park. Clinging to the protection of the country's wealth, lands and government institutions has been propagated as true patriotism. The march was conducted from Ambedkar Park to Fauji Chowk.

A half-hour demonstration was held in Fauji Chowk by holding thrones and making a human connection.

The demand for the release of worker leader Nodeep Kaur was loudly demanded.

On February 4, the Bharatiya Kisan Union Ekta Ugrahan burned the images of the Modi government in the village of Ghuda in protest of the incident at the Red Fort caused by the government during the Kisan Morcha parade in Delhi on January 26. On this occasion, slogans were raised against the communal forces, which distorted the true color of agitation. Slogans were raised in meticulous depth condemning the BJP's sponsorship of the thugs in order to subvert the democratic ranks.

On February 12, the Punjab Students Union protested the unconditional release of labor leader Naudeep Kaur at Government College Malerkotla and the arrest of police officers responsible for inhuman torture, and shouted slogans against the Khattar government in Haryana.

The Kirti Kisan Union Gurdaspur has carried out a campaign in around 100 villages of the * Delhi Chaliya Struggles * to strengthen the Delhi Morcha and to support the farmers on a large scale.

On February 12th, the youth wing of the Kirti Kisan Union held a meeting regarding the struggle of the peasants in different villages of the Fatehgarh Sahib district, Paheri, Kotli, Kapoorgarh, Buga Kalan, Buga Khurd, Burima, Chowdra and Malkpur etc. At the meeting it was decided to send as many groups of men as possible to the Delhi Morcha for a week. Motorcycle march in the area tomorrow to create more excitement for the people.

On February 11, Sanyukta Kisan Morcha (SKM) leaders Manjit Dhaner, Kulwant Singh Sandhu and Harinder Singh Lakhowal spoke on the stage and vowed to fight peacefully until the Modi government agrees to withdraw the three agricultural laws that the farmers have rejected. Dhaner also thanked Rakesh Tikait from the Bharatiya Kisan Union (BKU) for rejuvenating the struggle of the peasants.

"It is no longer just a struggle of the farmers, but has now become a mass agitation. In the ongoing agitation, 99 percent of the people are on the side of the farmers, but unfortunately Prime Minister Narendra Modi has sided with the corporations," said he the tribune.

Meanwhile, Lakhowal poked fun at the centre's claim to have an open dialogue about peasant laws because "all the doors were slammed in the form of barricades erected on the borders with nails and iron bars pegged to the streets and the denial of basic amenities to the protesters. "

The president of the BKU (Ekta-Ugrahan), Joginder Singh Ugrahan, called on the demonstrators to prepare for a protracted fight that goes beyond the national regime. In saying this, he identified the World Trade Organization (WTO), the IMF and the World Bank as the real culprits responsible for the new economic policies.

Ugrahan said the laws would force more than 80 percent of farmers, especially those with small farms, to lose their land to corporations and large corporations.

At the same time, the leaders warned of political kidnappers who could manipulate the struggle for their own agenda. They reminded the farmers that the agitation was started by the Indian peasantry and that they will continue to fight together.

The United Kisan Morcha decided to step up its movement for the return of three black laws, criminalizing procurement under the MSP, returning lawsuits, etc. The following decisions were made at the February 10th session in this regard:

(1) From February 12th, all roads in Rajasthan will be exempted from toll booths, they will be made toll-free

(2) On February 14th, candle marches, torchlight procession etc. are organized in memory of the soldiers who died in the attack in Pulwama

(3) On February 16, the birthday of Sir Chotu Ram is celebrated as "Farmer Solidarity Day".

PSU State Secretary Amandeep Singh speaks. Organizations that participated were the SFI, PSU, AISF, PSU (L)

LOK MORCHA PUNJAB DECLARATION

Strengthen the struggle of the peasants! Step forward to save national resources from corporate imperialist pillage.

Beloved people, the Modi government eschews every means to suppress the ongoing struggle of the peasants. It has erected barricades and used police forces to suppress the voice of the people, it has tried to create a communal division by linking the struggle of the peasants with a religion, it has tried to counter-mobilize in other states, by projecting the struggle as related to a state, it has tried its tried and tested tool of national chauvinism by spreading false propaganda of dishonoring the tricolor, it has sent out groups of thugs disguised as locals to attack the peasants .

Patriotic shell - betrayal underneath

In reality, the Modi government, which makes a lot of ado about the dishonoring of the tricolor, is itself the greatest traitor and responsible for that dishonor. It has left the previous governments far behind and implemented the dictates of imperialist countries like America and their favorite organizations like IMF, WTO and World Bank and handed over our national wealth and resources to imperialist corporations and corporations.

During the brief period of the pandemic, the vital sectors of our economy such as coal, railways, minerals, space, airports, nuclear power, etc. were opened to foreign capital. At the same time, labor laws were changed to provide these companies with labor that was cheap and available on any terms. The Electricity Act 2020 was passed in order to guarantee the big corporations guaranteed profits by depriving the population of any subsidies for electricity. The new agricultural laws make Indian agriculture the plaything of the corporations; legalize the unlimited stockpiling and black market trade in essential goods such as grain, pulses, oilseeds, edible oils, onions and potatoes, and pave the way for the decimation of the PDS and government agencies like FCI. These are exactly the steps the imperialists have long pressured the Indian government to take. The innumerable imperialist dictates in the guise of proposals are documented in various reports and papers by imperialist institutions such as the IMF, WTO and the World Bank.

The creation of looting skies for corporations and imperialist corporations by plunging the great working Indian masses into misery through these dictates is nothing more than an open betrayal of the Indian people and betrayal of the country. It is precisely this betrayal that is the hallmark of Indian rule. The more loyal someone is to the imperialists, the more acceptable they are to lead the nation. The elections have been reduced to a mere formality when in reality the governments are elected by Indian and foreign corporations. Because of this firm loyalty to the imperialists, the Modi government has come to power for the second time. That is why she takes one relentless step at a time that upsets people's lives. That is why, despite strong resistance from the masses, she is so adamant about enforcing these black farm laws.

 

True patriotism is resistance to the imperialist pillage of our country

It is the duty of every citizen to speak out against this betrayal of the Modi government and to oppose the corporate plundering of the country's resources. The land's resources belong to the people; saving them from corporate pillage is our common cause.

The current fight against agricultural laws has a very important meaning today. The meaning of this struggle extends to companies like Wal-Mart and Reliance devouring our retail sector, it extends to the doors of high profile hospitals like Max or Fortis built on looted land and the resources of government hospitals, it extends to the tollbooths that take money from people instead of taking them from their own land. The fight against the agricultural laws is not only a fight to save farmland from corporations looting, but also a fight to save the public distribution system, to save state institutions like FCI, Pungrain, Food & Civil Supply, Warehouse etc. and the jobs in these public companies. It is also a struggle against rising prices and for ensuring the supply of all essential goods at reasonable prices. Most of all, it's a struggle to protect India's food security. Becoming part of this struggle against corporatist pillage is true patriotism. Lok Morcha Punjab invites all of us to recognize our duty to the nation and its people and to mobilize all our forces to lead this ongoing struggle to victory. Let's do the divisive and provo, but most of all it is a struggle to protect India's food security. Becoming part of this struggle against corporatist pillage is true patriotism. Lok Morcha Punjab invites all of us to recognize our duty to the nation and its people and to mobilize all our forces to lead this ongoing struggle to victory. Let us use our united strength to defeat the divisive and provocative policies of the Modi government. Let us strengthen the secular character of this struggle and force the Indian rulers to turn away from imperialist dictates. The victory will be ours.
