THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: CPM along with other Left parties will observe December 6 as Black Day to commemorate the demolition of Babri Masjid. The Left parties Black Day is also aimed at countering  the divisive campaign unleashed by Sangh Parivar outfits on the issue of temple. This is first time that CPM along with CPI, CPI-ML, RSP, Forward Bloc and SUCI are observing black day on December 6. PDP led by Abdul Nasser Madani used to organise black day on December 6 since 1992.

The Left parties plan to highlight the lawlessness caused by private armed gangs affiliated to Sangh Parivar like gau rakshaks who are killing innocent people in the name of cow protection. The CPM believes that since Centre and various BJP-led state governments were providing silent support to these vigilante mobs, there was a need to mobilise pubic opinion against their divisive agenda. The Left parties lamented that two and a half decades after the demolition of the mosque, there has been no action yet against the organisers and the perpetrators of the crime that triggered communal riots across the state.

The CPM and other left parties are also observing December 6 which is death anniversary of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar to highlight the atrocities against dalits across the country along with the attacks on the secular and democratic fabric of the nation. The Congress led UDF will organise secularism day in defence of secular fabric of the nation.

Location: India, Kerala
