Emboldened by Muslim League in power jehadi forces active in Kerala
By S Chandrasekhar
But for the 72-68 slender majority between Congress Muslim League led UDF and CPM led LDF in Kerala, the Muslim League would have gone ahead with the jehadi agenda of Islamic majority in Kerala by 2020, as stated by VS Atchudanandan during his chief ministership.
The wafer thin majority is preventing Muslim League to pursue its agenda and, still now, its fifth minister request is in call waiting.
But emboldened by the thought of Muslim League in power, jehadi forces and jehadi tendencies are rearing up their heads.
As an insult to the memory of the eight Hindu fishermen who were butchered by jehadis in Marad in May 2003, benefits worth 20 crore were distributed to 275 Muslim families of Marad in the form of houses, employment, goats etc. The Chief Minister Oommen Chandy in the presence of Muslim League Ministers promised parole for the 62 convicts convicted by courts for riot, loot, destructions and murder in Marad in May 2003.
Financial aid and grants worth crores have been given to the 547 madrasas in the State. The Haj quota has been increased several folds, and crores being spent on special Haj flights.
In a blatant show of arrogance, the English medium school under the control of Guruvayur Sree Krishnan School, has been forced to organise a whole day class on Haj. This is under the contention that the school has a large number of Muslim students. Hindu students here are not allowed by wear tilak or sandal. Sanskrit classes have been banned. Reports have also come that to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the school, programme on importance of Haj and message of bakrid is going to be organised. All because Guruvayur is Muslim dominated and Education Minister is from League!
T Nazeer, who was behind the Export-of-Terror to Kashmir and various blast cases in and out of Kerala, was flushed out from Bangladesh by Karnataka Police. Nazeer who is in jail in Kannur is NIA accused in various cases. Recently reports have come out that Nazeer has made mobile and coin-box calls from jail to US, Pak, Afghanistan and various places in India. Since he used ‘Urdu’, the jail authorities could not make out what he was speaking. Also in a bid to arouse communal passion the jehadi NDF is circulating a false letter in ‘Facebook’ of conspiracy by Hindu jailers to kill Nazeer in jail. There are also reports of NIA/IB suspecting sleeper cells of HUJI/IM in Delhi High Court blast and are questioning Nazeer.
Mohammed Ashar and PP Yoosaf of Kannur have been included in the most wanted 25 top terrorists of NIA. Interpol is to issue red corner notice against them shortly.
NIA is probing the recent huge haul of Pak printed Indian currencies from various parts of Kerala.
Vouching the RSS contention, that jehadi forces are out to cleanse the Kerala coast of Hindus, records suggest that 40 hectares of land in Marad have been brought by Muslims, post May 2003.
Police and Intelligence inputs say that the recent violent incidents in Kasargod district is not a CPM-Muslim League clash, but a Hindu-Muslim communal fight. The CPM targeted Muslim establishments and houses and NDF-Muslim League targeted only Hindu cadres, establishment and houses of CPM.
In a major shift, the CPM which wooed the 47 per cent Christian-Muslim votes of Kerala right from 2004 and attained partial success in 2004, 2006 polls, is realising that the consolidated Christian-Muslim votes go the UDF way and for CPM to survive, it has to project itself as the votary of the 53 per cent strong Hindu population of Kerala. It achieved creditable success in its strategy, when it won 68 of the 140 seats despite UDF sweeping the 2009 Lok Sabha polls and local body polls. The CPM has been able to attract Hindu voters of UDF. As a strategy, it has stopped attacks against RSS in Kannur and turned a blind eye to its cadres going to temples after party functions, with vehicles carrying red flags.
The CPM’s long term strategy is to project itself as the true saviour of the Hindus in Kerala by usurping traditional Congress and pro-BJP Hindu voters. Only time will tell whether Kerala Hindus will become like Lankan Tamils, between devil minorities and deep sea CPM.
