The Constiution Of India Day: Remain Vigilant Against Hindutva Which Always Denigrated It
By Shamsul Islam

The Modi government has issued an order to commemorate the 66th anniversary of the passing of the democratic-secular Constitution by the Indian Constituent Assembly. It has been forced to do it fearing backlash from the people of India. But the Indian masses must be on guard to ensure that the present Hindutva rulers of India are unable to destroy our democratic-secular constitution from within. These rulers are master liars and specialize in double/triple speak. They are simultaneously raising questions about secularism, democracy, reservation and justice. On the 66th anniversary of finalization of our Constitution we must pledge to scuttle all attempts to undo this fundamental law of the land

The Fight Is Between Modern Constitution And Those Whose Model Is Manuwad
By Vidya Bhushan Rawat

Today, the challenge is to implement this constitution in letter and spirit. We need to heed the warning that Baba Saheb Ambedkar gave us when he handed the copy of the constitution to the nation that we must resolve our contradiction between social and political life. In politics we have attained the equality by one man one vote principle but in social life this equality does not exist and therefore if that is not resolved it is bound to fail our political system. There are forces who want to fail this constitution and then blame it on the constitution

“Gandhi’s Assassins
By Subhash Gatade

India seems to be standing on very weak foundations, and the possibility of a Hindu State is far stronger than it was half a century ago, in 1963

Defend Perumal Murugan, Defend Freedom Of Speech, #DefendIndianConstitution
By Countercurrents.org

Recently Tamil writer Perumal Murugan declared himself 'dead' as a writer. He also withdrew all his books. He was silenced by a cabal of caste and communal forces for writing the novel ‘Madorubhagan', which upset powerful caste groups in western Tamil Nadu’. RSS extremists burnt his books in public and he was forced to flee from his home. The state agencies and officials, instead of offering protection to the author, violated his Constitutional right to freedom of speech by acting on behalf of the mobs that were threatening violent action against him #DefendIndianConstituion

‘Secular’ And ‘Socialist’ Dropped From The Preamble Of Indian Constitution In Republic Day Advertisement
By India Resisits

We are shocked by the conspicuous absence of the words ‘secular’ and ‘socialist’ from the Indian constitution’s preamble used in the customary advertisement in newspapers of 26th January, greeting people of India on the Republic Day. At the time when the people of India, and even the global community, have genuine apprehensions about the secular character of the Indian democracy, which stands threatened by a right-wing government formed with less than one-third of the popular votes, this omission is utterly condemnable #DefendIndianConstituion

Derailing The Constitution: A Threat To The Idea Of India
By Shehzad Poonawalla

The Indian Constitution has been modeled to allow a process of collective decision-making that safeguards us against the terrible outcomes of concentrating all power in one individual. For over 60 years, we have as a nation, built up democratic institutions that act as a safety valve. Today, a unilateralist approach and an almost dictatorial control over these institutions threaten the very foundations of our democracy
