Dear Venkat I have gone through with your response countering my views on �Dissent is democracy and consensus is fascist. Only denouncing the communists and trying to through stones on the head of other religions would not be helpful proving your thoughts truth, which was concocted and structured illogically. I never tried to defend Indian communists especially those comrades who are using parliamentary path and making several ideological compromises due to electoral politics. My endeavor was/ is only to deal with the issue through its classical meanings. Democracy, as a responsible concept/ system providing equal opportunity to everyone, has no space for anarchy. It is a consolidated version of different views and confronting authoritarianism. If you have democratic conciseness, it is possible to make consensus within your periphery on critical issues. By the end of democracy fascism takes place its journey forward. We are in Nation building process till today, since independence. We could not resolve the issues of religious and linguistic minorities as well as abolish the regional imbalances in our developmental paradigm. We are facing so-many hurdles in this regard. Making national unity with its diversity is a challenging task before us, while ruling classes are abdicating from its responsibilities. We have forgotten the spirit and agenda settled by first independence war fought in 1857. It is forthcoming agenda for Indians and united India, once again, combat imperialism and communalism for building a sovereign nation. Regards, Ambarish Rai President, Lok Sangharsh Morcha
