With the rise of nationalistic enthusiasm all across the country, communists are stooping to a new low each day. Kerala is the only state where they are in power, and slowly they are ensuring their exit from there as well. Communists have decided to take Muslim appeasement to a new level by comparing Islamic Genocidal Variyan Kunnathu Kunjahammed Haji, to India’s one of the greatest freedom fighters, Bhagat Singh.
The comparison was done in the typical left-wing soft-spoken intelligent-sounding manner by Kerala Legislative Assembly speaker M.B. Rajesh. At a function, where he was invited to inaugurate a function related to the Moplah riot, he said- ‘’ “I think his (Variyan) place is at par with Bhagat Singh,”. Kerala BJP General Secretary demanded to book Rajesh under Sedition Law. He also demanded a clarification from CPI (M) whether the party agreed with the opinion of the speaker.
The statement came at the time when the nationalist Government under BJP decided to remove 387 and the Moplah martyrs from the list of “Martyrs of India’s freedom struggle”. The removal came after a three-member committee concluded that, it was not a freedom struggle but a riot but a fundamentalist movement focused on religious conversion.
The Moplah riot gave an insight into how a caliphate established under Muslim rulers will be for Hindus. At least, 10, 000 Hindus were massacred by Muslim rioters headed by Variyan. Variyan, The son of a rich merchant forced at least 1, 00,000 Hindus to flee from Kerala while more than 100 temples were destroyed and looted by him. Through his soft skills of being an artist (an act reminiscent of Islamic sophistication), he organized a massive conversion racket in the region.
Bhagat Singh on the other hand had declared himself to be an atheist only after Gandhi disbanded Non-Cooperation movement in the wake of Hindu-Muslim riots. He was a nationalist first. A vociferous reader, Bhagat Singh committed violence only for the nationalistic cause. He sacrificed his life for the country at the young age of 23.
Communists called 23-year-old nationalistic Bhagat Singh as their own, though the fundamental philosophy of communism is the elimination of national identity. And now, they claim that an atheist Bhagat Singh was equal to a radical Islamist genocidal man like Variyan Kunnath Kunjahammed Haji. It is the zenith of twists and turns by the self-proclaimed rationalist.
