Press Statement

The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:

Condemn BJP’s Attack On NHRC

The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) strongly condemns the BJP’s attack on the National Human Rights Commission’s decision to move the Supreme Court in the Best Bakery case as being "anti-Hindu". It is normally the job of the government of the day to ensure that justice is delivered to the victims and action taken against the culprits who unleashed the State-sponsored genocide against the minorities in Gujarat last year. The BJP’s culpability in the communal carnage in Gujarat is now established by their opposition to prevent the delivery of justice in this case.

The BJP, in government, has come into confrontation with every single Constitutional authority and institution in our country in the pursuit of its vicious communal agenda.

The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) hails the NHRC’s initiative to ensure that justice is delivered in this case as also its decision to have four other horrendous instances to be legally tried outside the state of Gujarat. The RSS/BJP’s attacks on the Constitutional authorities and institutions cannot be tolerated.
