A brief summary of Ram Puniyani’s talk:

Ram Puniyani’s talk about communalism explains the extremist sentiments inherited by India and Pakistan and how they sway our disconcerted society. He also enlightens in his talk how Mulsims and Hindus both harped on similar issues and opposed the already contaminated process of Perjudice and Imperialism but later were split between different ideologies which had a great deal of impact on how they are being governed at present-day. He advocates a classless, secular and decentralized society beneficial to the democratic citizens in a confederal fashion.

The event was organized by PILER (Pakistan institute of Labour education and research). Sharafat Ali, Karamat Ali and BM Kutty were among the organizers.
