One more killed in Kerala political clashes
Kannur (Kerala), March 6 (IANS) Political clashes claimed one more life in this northern district of Kerala, taking the death toll to four in two days of violence. Mahesh, 33, an activist of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), was hacked to death allegedly by Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) workers Thursday evening.
Mahesh, an autorickshaw driver, was attacked at Chittaripparambu, about 30 km from district headquarters. Aneesh Kumar, also a BJP activist, was also attacked in another incident at Kaitheri in the district.Three people were killed in clashes in Thalassery town following an attack on a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) leader.
The district has been a hotbed of political violence between the ruling Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) and the BJP-RSS combine.Kannur district and the nearby Mahe, a region of union territory of Puducherry, observed a dawn-to-dusk general shutdown Thursday following a call given by the BJP-RSS and the CPI-M.
Communist Killing Squads roaming freely in Kannur
Political terror reigned supreme in Kannur on Thursday for the second consecutive day with the murder of one more RSS worker Mahesh even as the people of the district, especially in Thalassery and Koothuparamba, spent a day in panic and anxiety amidst a total hartal called by the BJP-RSS and the CPI(M) after the three murders on Wednesday.
RSS activist Mahesh was hacked to death on Thursday at Chittaniparamba in Koothuparamba, the Assembly constituency represented by CPI(M)'s P Jayarajan, who is also the general manager of party organ Desabhimani. Another RSS activist Aneesh was admitted to the Indira Gandhi Hospital, Thalassery with serious hack injuries.
The killing and the attacks were allegedly carried out on the RSS workers by specially trained squad operated by the CPI(M). Reports said that such political terror troops were roaming the streets in various parts of the district.
It was alleged that such incidents indicated the silent support of the CPI(M)-led LDF Government to attack-teams with particular blessings from Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, who was known for his association with violence in Kannur. The Minister had proudly announced in Thiruvananthapuram that four companies of police led by Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) Jang Pangi were taking care of the security aspects in the area. Thursday's events proved the hollowness of this claim following the gruesomely violent attacks on the two RSS workers and other incidents of violence staged by CPI(M) men using the hartal as a screen. Houses of several RSS and BJP workers and leaders also had come under attacks by CPI(M) troops in Thalassewry and other areas on Thursday.
People in Thalassery and adjoining areas were confined to their houses on Thursday following the dawn-to-dusk hartal call of the CPI(M) and the BJP following the violent incidents in the area. While the BJP and the RSS had called for a hartal in the district following the killing of two of its workers and the gruesome attack on RSS leader MP Sumesh, the CPI(M) had called for a hartal in Thalassery Assembly constituency and Mahe and Pinarayi panchayats.
The hartal call had evoked a total response from the people of the area with no one venturing out of their houses and vehicles were also not seen on the roads. A group of CPI(M) workers attacked the residence of RSS activist Prakasan in Sankaramangalam in Kuthuparamba Assembly constituency. The police had to fire in the air to disperse crowds which were intent on creating problems.
The sounds of bomb explosions were heard throughout Thalassery area and the presence of huge contingent of police failed to deter the party troops from moving around and carrying out bomb attacks on political adversaries. People of Thalassery and Kuthuparamba were shell-shocked after Wednesday's violence and the presence of police had failed to restore people's confidence.
Thalassery has witnessed bloody political killings whenever the CPI(M) has assumed power in the past and according to observers, the cowardice of the party could well be gauged from the fact that once the UDF assumed power Kannur would turn peaceful as the police would act neutrally. With a person like Kodiyeri Balakrishnan remaining at the helm of Home Affairs in the State, the people would never have hopes of peace, observers say.
During the previous Nayanar regime, it was P Sasi, the present CPI(M) district secretary, who was said to be controlling the police as special secretary to then Chief Minister, who was holding Home portfolio as well. The police had then acted in a biased manner and there were several instances in which the residences of the RSS workers had been attacked by police officers like Thalassery DySP Koyilandi Balakrishnan.
BJP parliamentary team to visit Kannur
The CPI(M) terror violence in Kannur is becoming a national issue now as BJP center leaders strongly condemned the CPI(M)'s violence in Kannur and asked Central Government to send Central Forces to Kannur immediately. A team of BJP parliamentary board would visit Kannur very soon.
CPM rule contributes to violence in Kannur
07/03/2008 14:35:35 Pioneer News Service | Kannur
Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, CPI(M) MLA from Thalassery, which has been in the whirlpool of political terror for almost the past three decades, said the other day that all steps had been taken to restore peace in the area that saw brutal murders of six young men in two days. But people of Kannur district, who have witnessed such gruesome acts of violence for quite long and such statements from Ministers, are not ready to believe him. In a sense, they don't believe anybody when it comes to claims on restoration of peace.
Kuttappan (name not real) of Vadiyil Peedika, who has been driving buses and cars for the past 30 years in Thalassery area, is convinced that the opposing camps in the killing fields of Kannur will never realise the meaning of peace. "I have seen how they plan to kill people. I have seen how brutally they kill people. They don't look at the faces of the young men they kill. The killer and the killed are in most cases neighbours or even relatives," says Kuttappan.
Not all in Kannur think like Kuttappan. Ramesh (name not real) from the same place says he would blame the CPI(M) more than the RSS-BJP combine for the political history of murders of Kannur. "I have watched that Kannur, especially Thalassery and Koothuparambu, turn red with blood whenever the LDF headed by the CPI(M) comes to power. There is a clear link between power and violence in Kannur," he says.
"This has nothing to do with communism, class war or the so-called anti-communal sentiment. The basic cause of the recurring violence in Kannur is plain terror with which the CPI(M) wants to keep the area under its control. This rule-by-violence practice is in force there always, but it finds actual manifestation when the CPI(M) comes to power," Ramesh says.
Unbiased people of Kannur say that this could be the only place in the world where violence is not based on a cause. "There is no need for a reason for any murder or violence here. You will think violence erupts all by itself, and in almost all cases this is true also," said Mani from East Palayad.
Mani, who is a former DYFI activist, said the CPI(M) here, controlled by people like State secretary Pinarayi Vijayan, district secretary P Sasi, Koothuparambu MLA P Jayarajan, central committee member EP Jayarajan, etc, "all known for their affinity to violence", was finding its strength through violence.
"Every communist knows the meaning of liberated villages. But the concept has a different meaning in Kannur. Here, it means a village where the communists make bombs, conspire to attack adversaries and train for violence," said Mani.
People like Mani and Kuttappan say that there is no surprise if the BJP-RSS is gaining strength in this area. "The social repression practiced by the CPI(M) is so intense that anybody who does not like it will have to identify with some other force. Here it is mainly the BJP or RSS," Mani adds.
The general opinion is that whenever the CPI(M) comes to power, there will be hasty reshuffles in the police force here. The aim of this is to place trusted officers and personnel in Kannur. "Once this is done, it is easy for the comrades to take over the district," Ramesh says.
That the violent incidents are results of spontaneous reactions is absurd, people of Thalassery say. "My children are not into any political party," says Syamala, a mother of three, whose elder son is a computer professional in Tirur, Malappuram. "But I know at least half a dozen mothers who have lost their sons in violence in this Koothuparamba area alone. They were not killed in attacks by irate mobs. They were all killed in meticulously planned attacks. And in all the cases, the murders were committed by specially trained groups. But when the police come to arrest people, there will always be some "willing comrades" to go with them," said Syamala.
Leaders of other parties like the Congress and the Muslim League have been demanding strict action against such political terror gangs, "but the CPI(M) has succeeded in avoiding such crack-downs," says the mother
Thousands take out march to protest CPI(M) terror in Kannur
Thousands of RSS & BJP activists today took out a protest march to the Raj Bhavan against the killings of four Swayamsevaks by CPI(M) criminals in Thalassery in the last three days. Hindu organization leaders sought the Governor's immediate intervention in restoring peace in the district.
In a memorandum submitted to Governor R L Bhatia, RSS-BJP leaders stated that there was a conspiracy between the CPI(M)-led government and the police in protecting the culprits.
RSS Prantiya Saha Karyavahak N Shankar Ram and BJP state Secretary M T Ramesh led the protesters to Raj Bhavan.
They sought the intervention of the Governor in maintaining peace in Kannur district. The CBI should be asked to probe the role of senior CPI(M) leaders who had organised the crimes with the help of the police," the memorandum said.
The BJP will react strongly if the CPI(M) continued to stir violence in the area, it said.
CPI(M) terror : 30 houses destroyed, Hundreds of properties damaged
According to reports, more than thirty houses of RSS/BJP activists have been destroyed by CPI(M) criminals in Kannur district so far. Hundreds of properties including Schools, various Seva centers, Janmabhumi office etc. were destroyed. The terror attack is still going on across Kannur district.
Barely 48 hours since the Mahashivarathri celebrations, CPM has launched a killing spree, again against Sangh parivar workers. An unholy CPM-Police-hired killers nexus has pushed Thalasserry Taluk into a blood bath. Four Sangh workers have been killed in Taliban style within a tiny taluk called Thalasserry in Kannur district, that too within 48 hours, that is 5th March afternoon to 7th morning. Twelve Sangh workers are seriously injured and housed in intensive care unit.
The attacks are carried out by professional and well-trained assassins. It is clear from the modus operandi they resort too. Bodies of all the victims were seen beheaded. Serious cuts on hands and legs are common. The killers are imported from nearby taluks. They come in large numbers of 100 to 125 and attack the Sangh workers and their houses in the area. They do not even spare domestic animals. The valiant Sangh workers faced it with a smile, in an unparalleled determination. Because, they do not fight for their bread and butter, but the noble ideology which run in their blood, which they carry in light or dark, starve or food, thirst or drink.
Marxist Terror - Bomb attack on DYSP
CPM Criminals attacked DYSP Shoukath Ali , one of the rare officer known for his impartiality.
Yesterday when Shaukat Ali was preparing to raid CPM offices at Koothuparambu following the beheading of Swayamsevak Mahesh, He was called back to Thalassery at the last moment by ADGP Jang Pangi-A Marxist stooge for 'urgent discussions'.
Even though Shaukat Ali asked for permission to go ahead with the raids, it was denied. In another incident DYSP Shaukat Ali armed with an automatic weapon was about to enter the CPM Thaluk office at Thalasserry with a large police contingent was stopped at the behest of SP Sreejith and this was followed by a public altercation between the two. Shaukat Ali has been since transferred to Panur. And today he was attacked by the CPM Killing squad.
