Dear Naresh Kumar Sagar,
Greetings from Swaraj Abhiyan!
Nation is passing thru tough times. Communalism has become one of the major threats to our society. It needs to be fought with Iron fist unitedly in all its forms. It is very sad reality Communal-ism is unchecked due to absence of will in Govts in power, to act in time as under law and deter.
In many instances it is found communal divide is engineered to promote political gains by politicians who find it convenient to play politics of hate fear and divide. This tool is used to polarize voters in the name of caste religion region and ethnicity during elections, to reap political dividends ignoring real issues. Very serious and more dangerous rise in recent times.
Religious & Caste driven crimes and violence has made our societies insecure, leading serious loss of confidence in agencies empowered to maintain peace and law and order has taken a blow. OUR Constitutional rights, freedom it gives and limits are abused.
In such a environment one can see serious evidences of emboldening of radical forces and mob threat culture threatening peace and harmony among various section of society.Though PM Narender Modi makes tall promises to the nation from Red Fort PM said in his address on 15th August 2015. "Be it casteism or communalism there is no place for them. In no way can they be tolerated"
How can it be normal for the authorities sitting on big seats of power in administration and executive with all the power and authority to be inactive on serious crimes. How they any measure ignore fundamental rights given by our constitution.
The PM may not have time but we can not be silent spectators to the day light abuse of our fundamental rights and disrespect and disregard to our constitution and the ethos and values system that we value most.
On one hand we expect the PM to honor his words and his resolve he made on and demands to that effect can be collectively made. On the other hand we believe.
Time has therefore come for all Peace, Justice and Harmony Activists to broaden their reach and spread their arms of compassion care and concern and commitment pan India to fight Communalism and Castism, and defeat the forces of divide at the earliest. Comunalism & Castism was not as big a threat in the nation as it is sadly seen in todays India.
We need need to join hands to build a large umbrella of like minded groups and individuals to work quickly build a mechanism to fight and prevent communalism and castism in all its forms.
Peace is only way forward that can be achieved by defeating politics of hate and divide. Any development, and claims of growth are empty if we fails to have a peaceful harmonious and inclusive society. India is historically home of all steams of faiths, cultures, languages, regions and colors preserving them it preserving nation in all its senses.
In light of the above, we are organizing a 2 day National Convention Titled - “Defeat Politics of Hate - Promote Politics of Peace" Titled - Umbrella for Peace on 16th & .
