The commonality is partial - IAC abjures violence - in the first instance.These "fascist" fundamental duties were wrongly inserted into the Constitution by Sanjay Gandhi to perpetuate his undeclared dictatorship. It is no coincidence that his widow is a union minister now in another fascist govt and so Sangh front organisations are reminding the nation (especially the impressionable children) about these duties while she is actually the RSS's Minister-in-charge over our children.
PS: Please should read Tagore's poem 'Aikotaan' - national integrity is a "symphony" which celebrates diversity and not merely a banging of utensils or forcing our students to sing artifical pledges.

The commonality is "Abjure" violence. Let us demonstrate just that.Let me clarify that the foundation of Build India Group is based on Article 51 A of the Constitution. Pledge in 15 languages as part of the exercise propounded by the Build India Group is to promote sense of fundamental duties among the students and now the country has got a statutory day for the citizens to affirm their commitment to the country.
Aikyataan is a step forward in that direction.regardsOn Tue, Jul 4, 2017 at 9:08 AM, Raminder Singh <email@example.com> wrote:Thanks for the timely clarification.
It was the socialist Russian revolution which declared that parasites have no place in society - "he who does not work shall not eat" and it was to defend against such parasites that fundamental duties were inserted into the Constitution via the notorious Emergency.amendments of 1976.
IAC being a socialist organisation of course respects the fundamental duties and "abjures" violence in its manifesto :-)
- to defend the country and render national service when called upon to do so
- to safeguard public property and to abjure violenceThe IAC reaffirms its strict adherence to those secular, socialist and liberal values such as are enshrined in the Constitution of India. The IAC while rejecting 'non-violence', 'Gandhigiri' and 'satyagraha' as the hypocrisy of Corruption's minions, however, abjures ( as being 'Swaraj' and the humility of the strong ) the use of violence and force of arms in the first instance.
