In light of the attacks on RSS/BJP workers in Kerala by the CPM in the past 3-4 days, a compilation of the CPM atrocities and violence of the past may be useful.

                            Indian Left’s corruption and criminal violence

    On 22 May 2005, in The Big Fight broadcast on NDTV, the CPIs Gurudas Dasgupta claimed “There is not a single Left MP on whom a finger can be pointed” (in the 14th Lok Sabha, out of 62 Left MPs). NDTVs anchor Debang also lied while talking to Gurudas Dasgupta on a debate on tainted ministers on 18 July 2004 that: “You house is made of bricks”. The Left  tried to be perceived as an ‘honest group with not a single tainted MP’ whereas the fact was that even at that time out of the 62 MPs, 8 were facing criminal charges (3 of CPM, 2 of CPI and 3 of RSP and Forward Bloc). 1 Left MP belonging to the Forward Bloc (member from Purulia in West Bengal) was in fact convicted of a charge as serious as rape in a case of 1982 on 12 May 2006.
  The Communists had actually supported the Partition of India in 1947, China in the 1962 war, Opposed India’s Nuclear tests in 1998 while supporting China’s in 1964 and called Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose as ‘Tojo’s Dog’, drawn a cartoon of a donkey with Netaji’s face, etc.
  This compilation is divided into: 1) Corruption, financial dishonesty, etc by Left and 2) Violence, criminal murders. Only few handpicked cases are given here as they are many many. CPI(M) is dishonest and corrupt and most importantly very violent and intolerant, kills cadres and leaders of its opponents. In its 34 years of rule in West Bengal from 1977- 2011, the CPM reportedly did 55,000 political killings, many of them Congress workers.
Murders, criminal attacks
1-On 27 August 2003, 5 CPM workers got death sentence for killing BJP leader the very dynamic and popular Master Jayakrishnan in front of tiny tots who he was teaching on 1 Dec 1999. The traumatized children had to be counselled later- they suffered a severe shock.
This was upheld by the Kerala High Court on 26 July 2005. After this order of the High Court, the CPI(M), which gives long lectures to BJP and RSS on honouring court verdicts, openly burnt the effigy of the judge throughout the state with some workers even threatening to kill him.
But the SC acquitted 4 out of the 5 in December 2006 in a bench comprising of Justice Markendey Katju and reduced the death penalty to the 5th to life imprisonment who was soon released by the Left Government in Kerala.
But in December 2012 the Kerala Police re-opened the case.
And in July 2013 the CBI said that it will probe ‘laxity in earlier investigations’ in this case.
2- On 7 May 2008 the Times of India reported that a CPI(M) workers’ mob assaulted and stripped a 28-year old woman Nandigram as she refused to join the party. The doctor attending her at Nandigram Hospital confirmed there was sexual assault.
3- On 2 March 2002 the Times of India reported that CPI(M) workers hacked to death 2 BJP members who had switched to the BJP from the CPI(M) in Kerala.
4- One of India’s most wanted terrorist Yasin Bhatkal was actually arrested by the West Bengal Police in 2008 but due to poor prosecution from the CPI(M) he got bail and went scot-free. Such is CPI(M)’s pro-terrorist policy.
5- In November 2010 as many as 44 cadres of the CPI(M) including party office bearers were convicted for the brutal killings of 11 landless farmers by the CPI(M) workers in July 2000.
6- The CPI(M) leader of Kerala M M Mani openly bragged in a public meeting as to how the CPI(M) brutally killed its political opponents in Kerala. The murders of top popular BJP leaders Master Jayakrishnan (which we have seen earlier) and Pannian Chandran (killed in 1996) may have been like this, as we have seen most of the culprits go scot-free with only 1 convicted by the SC and he too was released by the government of Left in Kerala soon. BJP Kannur district secretary was killed by CPM cadres in front of his wife in 1996. The BJP suffered a big blow due to this. The BJP demanded re-probe in these 2 brutal murders by CPI(M) in light on Mani’s boasts.
7- District Secretary of the CPM in Kerala, M M Mani openly boasted in public that the CPI(M) eliminates opponents in Kerala.
As for the CPI(M)s hypocrisy, it removed Mani from his position after this in June 2012.
But then brought him back again on the same post later on 25 October 2013!
8- On 30 November 2010 an RSS worker was killed again by CPM cadres.
9- On 27 April 2009 an RSS man was stabbed to death near Kannur by CPI(M) cadres.
10- On 28 May 2010 in Kannur district 2 RSS men were killed in Kerala again by CPI(M) cadres.
11-  On 1 December 2013 in Kannur district a BJP worker was today hacked to death and two others were injured by CPI(M) workers. 12- CPI(M) Politburo member and his party’s face in Bengal former CM Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee admitted to the “grave wrongs committed by some of our party men” i.e. CPI(M) in areas like Netai by eliminating their political opponents. Nine people were killed on January 7, 2011 when alleged CPI(M) mercenaries attacked villagers at Netai a small village in West Midnapore district. While several of the attackers were arrested some others were still at large.

  The former Chief Minister addressing a rally at Midnapore on Sunday said the January 2011 mass killing at Netai was a “grave wrong committed by some of our partymen, many of whom had since fled the area” condemning criminalisation of politics.

13- The investigation in the murder of rebel CPM leader T P Chandrashekharan, which caused great embarassment to the CPM and for which CPM leaders were convicted, led to more alarming disclosures.  Accused in Chandrashekharan’s murder T.K. Rajeesh, 32, could be nabbed only after his girlfriend Rubina, who worked at a Kolkata bar, gave his mobile number to a visiting Mumbai police team that traced the twenty-something girl with Kolkata police’s help, sources said.
Rajeesh has allegedly confessed to being part of the seven-member team that murdered Chandrasekharan and said the killers had been acting at the behest of some Kerala CPM leaders.The police said he had also admitted to a direct role in the murder of four BJP-RSS activists in the past, including the daylight assassination of K.T. Jayakrishnan, state vice-president of BJP youth wing Yuva Morcha. It is not clear whether he has implicated the CPM in these murders too.

14- The trial court convicted 12 CPM members, including 3 top leaders, for the murder of CPM rebel leader T P Chandrashekaran. 

15- An accused in the murder of BJYM State Vice President Master Jayakrishnan died in August 2003. His name was Karayi Sanveejan. The mother of Karayi Sajeevan, named as seventh accused in the case pertaining to the brutal murder of Yuva Morcha’s Kerala vice-president KT Jayakrishnan in Kannur in 1999, has alleged that the CPI(M) was behind her son’s death. 

   Sajeevan was found dead on the night of August 11, 2003 just 15 days before a court in Thalassery sentenced five of the accused to death. “He had told me he was going to tell the court the whole truth but he had not divulged it to us. That he might spill the beans could have scared the CPI(M) and this could have led to his death,” his mother Kamala said. 

16Former CPM MP AP Abdullakutty alleged that Kerala CPM state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan (Now CM of Kerala) had asked the party leaders to follow the “Bengal line” of killing political enemies without shedding a drop of blood. He alleged that Vijayan explained that this “model” involved kidnapping and burying alive political enemies with a sack of salt on them in deep ditches.

Abdullakutty writes that Vijayan said this in a party meeting held at Azhikodan memorial party office in Kannur on March 5, 2008 ahead of a peace meeting convened by the district collector following violence in Kannur. Kutty says the meeting was attended by CPM MPs P. Karunakaran, P. Sathidevi and CPI(M) MLAs from Kannur other than him.

He further goes on to say that the discussion on eliminating enemies came up when Sathidevi complained to Vijayan that they were worried about BJP’s protest in Parliament showing pictures of barbarous killings by CPM in Kannur. “Pinarayi Vijayan said that if we adopt the Bengal model there won’t be any trace of the murder,” writes Abdullakutty.

“I was shocked to hear such a comment from the state secretary. Later, when we were at Parliament, I enquired about this to West Bengal MP Anil Basu. Basu told me that what Pinarayi told was right. He said that Kerala line of killing is barbaric and in Bengal they don’t even shed a drop of blood and bury the enemies alive. He said that the outside world won’t even see a piece of bone,” says Abdullakutty.  He says that he met Anil Basu along with P. Suresh Kurup, then CPM MP and present MLA of Ettumanoor. 

17- CPM leader Comrade Biman Basu was caught on camera asking CPM cadres to attack Election Commission people in protest against a decision which CPM did not like.Left Front chairman Biman Basu called upon the party cadres to ‘attack’ the Central observers and ‘teach’ them a lesson for ‘siding with the Trinamool Congress and the BJP in the campaigning against the CPI(M).’ Basu, who was also a member of the CPI(M) Politburo, in a public statement on 8 May 2004 incited the party workers and supporters against some Central observers. Some Central observers alleged to the CEC that their lives were in danger following threat by some CPI(M) workers who were opposing them to act impartially for ensuring a free and fair poll in West Bengal.They wanted adequate protection during their stay in the state so that they could work freely and independently. These observers also registered a formal complaint with the state Chief Electoral Officer (CEO), Mr Basudev Bandopadhyya, in this connection.

Reacting to Mr Basu’s threat to the Central observers, the TMC leader, Ms Mamata Banerjee, demanded that Mr Basu would be arrested forthwith for intimidating the Central election observers.
The BJP president, Mr Tathagata Roy, alleged that Mr Basu had gone out of the way in inciting the party cadres against the observers since they were now finding it difficult to rig the poll in their traditional methods. Mr Roy demanded police action against Mr Basu. The Congress also criticised the front chairman’s public statement against the Central observers. 

18- Seven (7) CPI(M) workers were found guilty by the trial court in Kerala on 2 March 2016 for the murder of a RSS official in April 2007. Mavelikkara additional sessions court III awarded life term to seven CPM men and fined Rs 30,000 each for murdering 38-year old RSS Charumood Karyavahak G Chandran.

The special prosecutor Prathap G Padickal said that seven men – Omanakuttan, 45, Robin,30, Roshan, 32, Pradheep, 30, Preaveen, 30, Sunil, 35, and Kunjumon, 65 – were found guilty on Tuesday by the judge Johnson John. Apart from the life term, the court fined Rs 30,000 each convict that should be donated to the victim’s family member’s welfare. If convicts fail to pay it, they have to serve additional one year jail.

The accused were found guilty under section 302 (murder) of IPC and the Arms Act. According to special prosecutor, the incident relating to the case happened in April 20, 2007 at a quarry in Vettiyar at 11.30 pm. Chandran was visiting RSS activists’ houses attacked by CPM activists. However, then CPM workers came there as group and attacked Chandran. Following this, Chandran ran away from the spot. But he was brutally killed when he reached in the quarry. The motive behind the murder was then existing political atmosphere in the area. There were 21 wounds on the body of Chandran, who was hacked with country sword and beaten with iron rode and oars. 

19- An ex-student of JNU was arrested in August 2013 for Naxal links. An entire University should not be blamed for the deeds of one man, but this is the sort of ideological indoctrination that is got at JNU. Pro-Maoist, pro-Naxalite.

20- In a Facebook post, the son of Kerala CPM leader P Jayarajan described the killing of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) worker K Manoj as ‘good news’. Jain, the son of CPM’s P Jayarajan, posted in Malayalam, “I have been waiting to hear this good news for a long time. Salutations, dear comrades.  Feeling excited.” In more posts, Jain justified his comments, saying his father had been attacked 14 years ago by a group of men including Manoj. His father P Jayarajan is the prime accused in the case of the killing of Manoj.

“A person who wrote a Facebook post on a murder should be booked. It shows that he could have a role in the murder plan. It is abominable to congratulate killers,” state BJP president V Muraleedharan has been quoted as saying.

Manoj was hacked to death on Monday in Kannur district. Bombs were thrown at his van before a group of people attacked him with swords, the police said. A murder case has been registered against eight people, all allegedly affiliated to the CPM, the police said. The killing took place as BJP President Amit Shah visited Kerala. 

The cases of CPI(M) killing RSS and BJP men in Kerala are so many that an entire encyclopedia can be written on that. Just a few cases are being given.

   This would be enough to know the dangers to the nation from the Left.
