Description

Phenomenal rise of the ethnic struggle for autonomy at the International level has posed a serious challenge to the existing state-systems and co-existence in pluralistic societies all over the world. India is no exception in witnessing political consciousness of the ethnic identity of minority cultural groups and their conflict with the majority community dominating the national political order.

The present struggle of sub-nationalities in various parts of India is assuming alarming proportions and is threatening the very existence of the Indian Democratic State. The visible minorities and other designated social groups should be better represented in the vast majority of the occupational categories and the decision making power at the government level. Despite forty-four years of independence, visible minorities have been paid little attention in India. Their representation is meager and their participation is almost negligible in the policy-making of the state affairs. They are suppressed and repressed by the dominance of majority culture.

It is necessary to trace the genesis of the history of the Punjab crisis and to remind the basic postulates of the Punjab problem. There is every likelihood of the emergence of a new dimension in Indian National politics and the overall scenario in the Punjab.
