Constitution of Sampradayikta Virodhi Andolan (Adopted at the Founding Conference, Delhi, 1989, amended at the annual convention, Delhi, 1990).

Preamble: The recent history of communal violence has convinced a large number of citizens of the need to organise systematic resistance to communalism in its various manifestations. Such resistance needs also to be grounded in a positive programme for communal harmony. The SVA is an organisation founded for meeting this need.
[. . .] The SVA is not a political party nor afront organisation of any political party. It seeks to build itself as a mass organisation open to all, irrespective of their political aiiiliations and religious beliefs;
devoted to fostering communal amity and combatting communal trends both in the administration and society at large. It can address political issues and political organisations, but will take care not to digress from its central aim while doing so.
