The journalist Sudip Dutta Bhaumik was murdered by the bodyguard of an Indian army commander. The bodyguard, who was a soldier as well, acted under orders of his commander Tappan Debarma. S.D. Bhaumik released a number of articles in which he uncovered several cases of financial irregularities and corruption. Mr. Bhaumik was not a communist, he simply dared to make use of his democratic right of the freedom of speech. This is the second murder of a democratic journalist in the last couple of months in India. In the city of Bangalore Gauri Lankesh was killed by unknown assailants. Lankesh criticized governmental corruption and policies. Corruption is everywhere in this wrotten state which is trying to suppress all democratic, progressive and revolutionary movements and individual actions.
The hindu-fascist Indian state is confronted with the most developed revolutionary struggle in the world. The people’s war led by the Communist Party of India (maoist), the armed struggle of the revolutionary masses in India, was called the greatest threat of internal security, by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. No wonder the officials of the old Indian state react nervous to any kind of opposition, they are in position of letting such things spread. But this repression against even democratic journalists and other persons will only drive the people towards revolution. In the end this is the only possible way for the masses of the population, to overthrow Imperialism, this system of oppression.
