We, the pro-people intellectual & social activists of Punjab strongly oppose the attempts by all types of communal fascist forces in Punjab, to sow the seeds of hatred and create communal disharmony amongst different sections of society, on the issue of commuting the death sentence awarded to Balwant Singh Rajoana by a Chandigarh court in the murder case of Beant Singh Ex-CM Punjab & his body guards.

After the death sentence of co-accused Jagtar Singh Hawara in this case was commuted to life imprisonment by Punjab & Haryana High Court, on his appeal, and a large number of democratic and justice loving people called for similar treatment to Balwant Singh Rajoana, there was no legal hitch in deferring the execution of his death sentence by the Central Govt till the decision of mercy petitions filed on his behalf by the President of India. By doing so the painful violent events of 28th March, when a state-wide Bandh was held in Punjab, would have been avoided. But unfortunately it was not done. As a result, the people of Punjab have been thrust in a dangerous situation.

We call upon the people of Punjab, to maintain communal harmony & social cohesion in this trying situation. There are black forces, who are bent upon frustrating the struggles of the people for their lives and livelihood; struggles against social and economic inequalities; struggles against indiscriminate exploitation & expropriation of India’s natural resources and labor power by Indian & foreign capitalists; struggles against thrusting the vast majority of Indian people in extreme poverty, disease, hunger, unemployment, illiteracy and sever state repression. These black forces want to break the unity of the people and entangle them in fratricide. Such anti-people forces must be shunned and defeated. Avoiding all types of provocations, let us move towards strengthening the bonds of mutual love, commonness, harmony and fraternity.
