Current manifestation of Communalism in India
The following are the manifestations of Communalism in India :
(i) To use issues of the past for settling scores in the present against another community.
(ii) To encourage inter-community enmity by bringing up events and episodes of the medieval past.
(iii) To punish innocent members of the community today due to acts of omission and commission of a few members of the same community in the past.
(iv) To incite communal animosity and hate by word of mouth or publication particularly by using one’s privileged position in society and profession.
(v) Attack on and murder of innocent human being in a frenzy of riot only because he belongs to another community.
All these show that communalism is very much inherent in the Indian socio-economic and political arena.
