The Communist Party of Pakistan (CPP) has two main objectives. Firstly – to fight against the naked aggression of American Imperialism so as to emancipate the downtrodden masses of Pakistan from the clutches and fold of American Imperialism and Secondly – to defend Socialism and Communism and to struggle for the Socialist Revolution in Pakistan.
Our Party Basic Manifesto is to have Socialism based on the ideology of Karl Marx, who was a German philosopher, political economist, historian, political theorist, sociologist, communist and a great revolutionary of all era.
Communist Party of Pakistan under its subjective condition is in the political arena for the social change, free from exploitation of man by man and is working for the welfare of the downtrodden and poor masses.
In Pakistan, the Communist Party was established in the year 1948 but CPP was banned in 1954 under American instructions and its top leadership were arrested and imprisoned in the so-called ‘Rawalpindi Conspiracy Case’ and after removal of the ban on its existence, the Communist Party of Pakistan has been re-established as an open party in the year 1999.
CPP salutes all such people’s movements fighting against all flavors of man-made exploitation. We believe that Marxism serves as an ideology as well as social tool for understanding and resolving all forms of exploitation.
The CPP has never ever supported any military regimes including General Musharraf. Our Ex-General Secretary Hasan Nasir was tortured and murdered in Jail by General Ayub in 1962 and our other Ex- General Secretary Jam Saqi remained more than ten years long imprisonment by General Zia-ul-Haq from 1975 to 1987. Likewise young Comrade Nazir Abbasi, a Central Committee member of CPP and others were also tortured and murdered by General Zia-ul-Haq during its military regimes.
