KOCHI: The CPM and five other left parties will observe December 6 as a black day marking the 25th anniversary of the demolition of the Babri Masjid.  CPI, CPI-ML, RSP, Forward Bloc and SUCI are other parties joining the CPM in its first-ever initiative to observe a black day to mark the demolition of the northern mosque. In Kerala, it was People's Democratic Party (PDP) headed by Abdul Nassar Madani, which used to observe December 6 as a black day since 1992. 

The left parties took the initiative to highlight "the increasing incidents of lawlessness" by the RSS-sponsored private armies with the connivance of the ruling BJP. "Instead of upholding the law of the land and proscribing such private armies, senior BJP leaders, including ministers in the central and various state governments have openly endorsed, patronised, and promoted such private armies and rationalised or even celebrated their violent actions", their joint statement said.

 

Describing the demolition as a black Sunday, the six parties also, pointed that "no action has been taken till now against the organisers and perpetrators of the demolition". The six parties also called upon people to observe the death anniversary of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar, falling on December 6. They will mount a campaign "against the intensification of the assaults on Dalits across the country and on the secular democratic values of our constitution by the communal forces."
