Check Rise of Communal Forces in Tamil Nadu


       The AIADMK government in Tamil Nadu, caught between internal rivalry and corruption, is prostrating before the communal elements at the Centre and acting according to the whims and fancies of BJP leaders in the state. Temples, schools and caste-based organisations – every forum of the society is being intruded by these elements to spread their communal ideology.

To counter the growing menace of communal forces in the state, a secular platform, called Tamil Nadu Platform for People’s Unity, was launched on October 3 at Raja Annamalai Hall in Parry’s in Chennai. Hundreds of people attended the event and the hall was packed to its capacity.

The state-level platform was launched to create awareness among all sections of the society on the problems of religious fundamentalism and counter it through direct action. Speakers at the inaugural function spoke about the necessity of forming a platform to combat the onslaught of communal forces.

Speaking at the launch of the platform, former West Bengal governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi said that those who have failed to address the problems of poverty and unemployment are trying to raise the issue of religious fundamentalism. Indians are poor, hard-working, but they are honest people. Money and violence are used to keep the poor in fear. We have to defeat violence and money power. Those who are poor and honest are intelligent too. They are secular by instinct. They cannot be frightened all the time. The fundamentalist forces, irrespective of their religion, are not enemies to each other, they are all in one club. We should be cautious, he said.
