When the entire party was shuddered due to the sad and sudden demise of our young comrade S.R. Tamizhan, Central Committee Member of the party, the clash between two groups of people is condemnable and beyond all sorts of humanity. Com. Tamizhan was a young and energetic comrade who selflessly worked for the cause of people of all walks of life and the overall developments of the area where he lives. The death two young people due to the clash are very unfortunate and could have been avoided. The party pays homage to the departed souls.
The All India Forward Bloc, the party founded by Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, the revolutionary hero of India and nurtured by Pasumpon Muthuramalinga Thevar, popularly known as the ‘South Indian Netaji’ is always hold high the flag and banner of secularism and social justice. The Indian National Army (INA) organized by Netaji is the greatest embodiment of secularism and equality. Pasumpon Muthuramalinga Thevar, who distributed his entire property of 32 villages to the down trodden people and raised his voice always for freedom, equality and social up-liftment of all irrespective of their religion, caste and creed. It is worth to remember here that Muthuramalinga Thevar who successfully led the movement for opening the Madurai Meenakshi Temple for the Dalit and downtrodden. There are number of incidents that Muthuramalinga Thevar had taken initiative to put up candidates from the dalit communities for Parliament, Assembly and other local bodies and worked hard for their victory. As a respectable political party and the product of Indian liberation movement, the All India Forward Bloc all along fought for the cause of dalits, minorities, adivasis and the people who were sidelined from the mainstream of the society along with other social issues.
It is unfortunate that a section of political leadership and bureaucrats are pouring communal paints time and again to the All India forward Bloc for their vested interests. There are forces working in the state to tarnish the image of AIFB and to instigate communal clashes for their narrow political benefits. The All India Forward Bloc strongly ignores this hateful act of perpetrators. The party appeals to the people of all walks of life to maintain communal harmony and not to fall prey on the venomous traps of communal instigators. The All India Forward Bloc urges upon the state government to take all measures to maintain peace and tranquility in the entire region. The party will leave no stone unturned to maintain communal harmony.
