The Indian state and their imperial allies have declared war against the people of India. The reactionaries impose underdevelopment and great poverty on the people of India. They terrorize the countryside, slums, and tribal areas with death squads and military operations such as Operation Green Hunt. The reactionaries engage in assassination campaigns, often hiding the assassination by reporting them as armed battles. These fake encounters mask a campaign of targeted assassination. Recently, it has been reported that Kishan Ji, an anti-imperialist leader, was killed by a joint-military operation that involved 1,000 reactionary security personnel.
Leading Light has differences with many of the organizations fighting against the state of India. Even so, Leading Light recognizes that many of those groups and individuals are playing a progressive, if limited, role in the anti-imperialist struggle. Leading Light denounces the extra-judicial murders taking place all over India. Leading Light denounces the murder of Kishan Ji. Leading Light calls on the Indian masses to unite under real, scientific leadership for global people’s war. Only with revolutionary science in the hands of the masses will capitalism be destroyed once and for all. We salute all those who died for a better world.
