“Only a united force of the Muslims, Christians, Dalits, Sikhs and others who have been wronged and disinherited by the advocates of Hindu Rashtra, can defeat the Hindu communal forces which are hell-bent to annihilate the minorities”, said Harinder Singh Khalsa, former MP and Member of National Presidium of Akali Dal Panch Pardhani. According to Khalsa, the political machinations of both BJP and Congress have during the last 61 years not only harmed the interests of minorities and Dalits but they have also, through direct and indirect use of State power, terrorised, subjugated and crushed them. Things have come to such a pass that Hindutva terrorists, the backbone of advocates of Hindu Rashtra, are indulging in rape, vandalism and murder of the minorities with tacit approval of the rulers. The latest investigations into Malegaon blast will surely reveal only a tip of the iceberg.
