The DYFI, the CPM’s youth wing, displays desecrating the Lord Ganesh on their campaign board as if they follow the footsteps of MF Husain, whom they once facilitated with Raja Ravi Varma Puraskaram, in insulting the sentiments of Hindus.
Old habits die hard. Undivided CPI had been following minority appeasement since 1950s and even after the party split in 1964, hence the formation of CPI and CPM, the comrades are still in the same path. But, during the last few years communists have aggravated their methodology. Few years back Swaralaya, the arts society founded by CPM PB member MA Baby MLA declared Raja Ravi Varma Puraskaram to MF Husain. But, Husain did not turn up from his exile in England, thanks to the right and unbending stand of the patriotic Hindu organisations that they would never permit Husain to step into Kerala soil. It was only the beginning of using artists and so-called artistic forms to insult Hindu faith.
Few months back, CPM displayed a tableau of the crucified Sree Narayana Guru as part of the Janmashtami processions which CPM launched to counter the 40 years of Janmashtami Sobhayatra of Balagokulm, a popular RSS associated organisation. Now, DYFI, the CPM’s youth wing, has displayed their campaign board in Paramaram, Wayanad District, desecrating the Lord Ganesh. Again it is a crucified Ganesh. CPM has been following the MF Husain footsteps in insulting the sentiments Hindus one way or other. This intolerance is at its height. It has been increasing since BJP took over the union government in 2014. Comrades have been campaigning against the Modi government since its inception. But, when their teeth and nails broke in this endevour, now they have turned to desecration of everything dear to the RSS. And, they make sure that both Christians and Muslims are not hurt. The reason is simple: Vote bank politics! They are totally upset and desperate as BJP achieved a tremendous success in the recently concluded Local Bodies Self Government elections.
Anti Fascism = Anti Hindutva!
A new equation has been floated in Kerala, obviously by vested interests, that is, Anti Fascism = Anti Hindutva. Last year when a handful of anti-Hindutva elements got together for ‘Kiss of Love’ campaign in Kochi, their declared philosophy was anti Hindutva, that is anti-RSS, that is anti-Modi. Interestingly the proponents, a couple—Rahul and Rashmi, of the very same movement are now behind the bars for their alleged blatant flesh trade using the internet hence named cyber prostitution. Last week Kochi witnessed some more dirty dramas like ‘Freedom Walk’ and ‘Manushya Samgamam’ (Human Rally). The two day programme was flagged off, on December 19, by a rally holding the placards carrying the slogans against the RSS and Hindutva. It was led by CPI leaders and their fellow travelers.
