Kerala Legislative Assembly Speaker and CPM leader M.B. Rajesh told on the floor of the House on August 22 that Khilafat or Mauppila Riot of 1921 was a glorious part of Bharat’s freedom struggle. Naturally no Opposition member from the Congress-led United Democratic Front countered the shameful statement.
This is the latest episode of Leftist campaign to appease the Muslim fanaticism for the cheap vote bank politics.
Rajesh conveniently hid the fact that the 1921 movement was intended to reinstate Khalifa rule in Turkey. So, the right thinking people ask what would have happened if Khilafat movement achieved its aim of reinstatement of Khalifa. What connection it would have got with the independence of this country?
What was the reasoning behind the genocide of Hindus, rapes of women, killings of children and demolishing of temples in a freedom struggle ?
But, this is the situation in Kerala. Everything can be overlooked as long the minorities are happy.
