Tempting eyes

Saudi moral police committee threatens to cover women’s “tempting eyes”

In Saudi Arabia, women with sexy, seductive, alluring, tempting eyes may be forced to cover them up, according to the spokesperson of the Committee for the Promotion(Ordering) of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice known as HAIA, in the ultra-conservative Gulf Muslim kingdom.

Spokesman of the Ha’eal district, Sheikh Motlab al-Nabet said the HAIA has the right to stop a woman whose eyes seem “tempting” and order her to cover them immediately. That is how dirty their “pious” minds are. Some of them probably drool from seeing a woman’s painted toe nails.

Legally, Saudi women are treated as minors without power to act on their own and must have a ‘guardian’ whose consent is necessary for all legal procedures, from marriage to contract, as well as driving, travelling or simply going to a hotel. The eyes were the only free part of a Saudi Wahhabi woman, the only means for her to assert her individuality, to assert that she is a sentient human being and not a sack of potatoes. Now even that is lost.

In the barren waste land that is the life of a Saudi woman, free speech is punishable with death and female servants hired from poor countries are more often than not, raped and forced into sexual slavery. They are severely beaten if they attempt escape.

HAIA, the Saudi Government religious bureaucracy is known to be the kingdom’s second most powerful political body after the ruling Al-Saud clan.

The HAIA employs the Islamic Police whose members known as the mutaween (plural; singular, mutawwa) are greatly feared on the streets of Saudi Arabia. The mutaween are robotic individuals who are nurtured and taught to spew out hatred and fear. Its approximately 3,500 members, and many more volunteers, patrol the streets enforcing dress codes, strict separation of men and women, salah prayer by Muslims during prayer times, and other behavior it believes to be commanded by Islam. The mutaween can and will approach and arrest anyone they deem as breaking their rules, even if they are as ambiguous as inciting "fitna," or temptation.

Saudi women are already forced to wear a loose black dress and to cover their hair and in some areas, their face, while in public or face fines or sometimes worse, including public lashings.

"tempting eyes"
The “tempting eyes” announcement came days after the Saudi newspaper al-Watan reported in 2010 that a Saudi citizen Atallah Al-Rashidi clashed with a mutawwa in Ha’ael when the mutawwa insisted Al-Rashidi’s wife cover her eyes. The scuffle ended with the mutawwa stabbing Al-Rashidi twice, leading to his hospitalisation. Why didn’t the mutawwa attempt avoid “fitna” or temptation and avert his “pious” gaze instead of lustfully staring into a married Saudi Muslim woman's tempting eyes! Perhaps it was the “pious” Islamic duty of the mutawwa to save other Saudi Muslim men from wiles of ocular temptresses!!

The case was taken to court and after five months the mutawwawas declared innocent of shedding Muslim blood while Al-Rashidi, who defended his wife, was sentenced to nine months in jail and 350 lashes for “arrogance”.

What is “arrogance”? Not being submissive to the whimsical Islamic Sharia Police. After all Islam means submission. And what is the opposite of submissive slavish acceptance of the dictates of the Islamic clergy? Arrogance, of course!).

What are “tempting” eyes? One Saudi journalist confides on condition of anonymity that they are “uncovered eyes with a nice shape and makeup. Or even without makeup, if they are beautiful, the woman will be in trouble.” For a religion which proclaims from roof tops or rather minaret tops that there is no compulsion in religion, what is the need for a moral police? One should not ask and risk being branded “arrogant”!

Saudi Crown Prince Nayef can now rest assured that the “pious” Saudi Muslim men are now saved from the temptations of Saudi eye whores!

In 2002, the mutaween refused to let girl students out of their burning schools in Mecca. The mutaween prevented the firemen and policemen from rescuing the girls from being burnt alive as “it is not okay for girls to be seen without their full Islamic dress in front of strangers.” Fifteen young girls died in the fire and dozens more were injured. Despite wide-spread condemnation, the Saudi Government was unmoved.

A Wikileaks document released last year mentioned that “wild Western-style parties” are regularly held at royal palaces in Jeddah, away from the reach of the HAIA, who stands helpless against any royal violations of the stringent prescriptions of Wahhabi Islam. It was reported that the parties had alcohol, drugs, dancing and sex, according to American consulate wires published by the whistle-blower organization.

Casteism practiced by the Communist Party- Part II

Casteism practiced by the Communist Party- Part II

Related posts

Some specific instances reported in the media.

Towards the end of my previous article titled ‘Casteism practiced by the Communist Party- Part I’ I had mentioned the CPM’s denigration of Sree Narayana Guru, a Hindu spiritual leader and an indefatigable social reformer, who is considered by the large Hindu Ezhava community as their spiritual leader. It is true that the Ezhava community considers Sree Narayana Guru as their kula guru. You will find his picture in most Ezhava homes while the spiritually-destitute Nair people, in sharp contrast, don’t even know the name of their kula guru or the whereabouts of his Samadhi sthalam. And yet the Ezhava people did not react strongly to the denigration of their spiritual leader by the CPM.

Sree Narayana Guru sought to resolve caste conflicts in Kerala with patience, scriptural knowledge, logic, dialogue, empathy and amity. Is it enough to make images of one’s guru while supporting inimical forces, like CPM, that preach class conflict and foment caste hatred, in direct contradiction to the guru's teachings?

I now expect the ‘comrades’ to howl, “Oh, you hate the Ezhavas because you are a ‘savarna’!” Well, you don’t have to love me. But can you love and respect the one who you proclaim as your guru and follow his teachings of patience, dialogue, empathy and amity while dealing with caste conflict instead of falling prey to your enemies who are turning you away from the path of Redemption illuminated by your guru’s brahma tejas?

Caste Based Discriminations are still reported from the nooks and corners of the Nation. Hindu Organizations are engaged in the sacred mission of reforming Hindu Society and whole hearted support from every section of the Hindu Society is needed to remove the caste bias which still persists in certain pockets.

News on ‘Dalit Abuses’ by so-called ‘savarna’ is one of the favorite propaganda materials for Missionaries and Jihadi’s for ridiculing Hinduism and seeking conversion of Hindu people. Communist party propaganda falsely proclaims itself as the reformer, which abolished caste system from Hinduism and falsely labels the Sangh Parivar as the reactionary force which promotes casteism among Hindus!

Let’s go into specific instances of caste discrimination by the communists.

1. Kannur District – The Communist fort in Kerala State. 20/06/2008. The real life story of Chitralekha.
The trouble for Chitralekha, who hails from a Scheduled Caste family at Payyannur in Kannur District, started when she married Sreeshanth who belonged to a different caste. Communist local leadership was against their inter-caste marriage. Under Rozgar Yojana she applied for loan and purchased an auto rikshaw. Problems started when she decided to earn the living for her family by plying the auto rickshaw on hire.

The casteist leaders of the Communist trade union CITU tried to sabotage her dreams of becoming self-reliant. She faced severe discrimination from the CITU members. One of them tore off the hood of her auto rickshaw. Another auto rickshaw tried to run over her. Finally, on 13th Dec 2005 Chitralekha’s auto rickshaw was burned down by the members of the Leftist trade union CITU.

Chitralekha, who sustained minor injuries, had to be hospitalized. CITU had seized a chance encounter to beat her and her husband, and the police, who arrived on the scene, took them to the police station and unleashed even worse violence. Her complaints have been ignored or treated with hostility by the mainstream media in Kerala. Activists and concerned persons in and outside Kerala, however, have rallied to her support. Chitralekha said: “They called me all sorts of names. One of them shouted that Pulachis will never ride an auto rickshaw here and it was the Union (CITU) decision”. When Chitralekha defied the communist ‘diktat' her auto was burned to ashes.

Thanks to a group of kind-hearted people in the area Chitralekha has bought another auto rickshaw. The auto rickshaw was handed over to Chitralekha at a function held at Police Club, Kannur on June 2008.[1]

2. Thiruvananthapuram: October 6, 2009. Thousands of Scheduled Caste and Backward Caste people had launched the Chengara agitation, without any support from any political party, on August 4, 2007, demanding five acres of land for agriculture for each family. As the LDF Government said a big no to this, they diluted their demand to one acre of land per family and fund to start cultivation. The Sadhujana Vimochana Samyuktha Vedi delegates at the meeting tried to press their demand for one acre of land to each family but the Chief Minister rejected it outright, saying that the Government did not have that much land with it. The Vedi delegates then suggested that they were ready to wait for the survey of the estate they were presently camping and that they would demand land only if the plantation company had been possessing excess land. But the great ‘avarna’ hero and communist Chief Minister Achutanandan rejected this proposal as well.

However, the stir was withdrawn on the condition that the Kerala Government would give one acre land each to the Scheduled Tribe(ST) families, half-an-acre each to the Scheduled Caste(SC) families and 25 cents of land each to the other poor in the Chengara agitation camp. The Government would also provide them with houses worth Rs 125,000 to ST families, Rs 100,000 to SC families and Rs 75,000 to other poor.

“That is all we, Scheduled Caste and Adivasis, the wretched of the earth, are worth. With this settlement, this land and home allotments become the criteria applicable to any Scheduled Caste land question in the future. In short, we are crossing yet another milestone in the history of ruling class neglect, a situation where the rulers and Opposition join hands against the poor,” said a Scheduled Caste activist.

The 26-month-long agitation by thousands of Scheduled Caste in the rubber estates of Chengara, Pathanamthitta in Kerala demanding land to live and cultivate ended with the Kerala Government and the Sadhujana Vimochana Samyuktha Vedi, which spearheaded the stir, coming to an understanding. The Vedi leadership admitted that the terms of settlement were a humiliation to the Scheduled Caste and it's President Laha Gopalan said, “This makes clear the CPI(M)-led Government's (negative) approach to the Scheduled Castes in Kerala. I am ending this agitation not because it had attained its goal. The stir was a failure. But I am forced to call it off just because I don't wear a crown and wield the staff of power,”. The Chengara stir had several times threatened to turn into a Nandigram of Kerala with the CPI(M) allegedly trying to defeat the Scheduled Caste aspirations with a heartless application of brute force.[2]

3. Tripura, Agartala: 31/10/2008. Veteran Communist party leader Jiten Sarkar Sarkar has been elected from Teliamura constituency in Tripura State for consecutive five terms since 1978. He was the Speaker of the Tripura Assembly for two terms from 1994. Jiten Sarkar resigned from the CPM party accusing the party leadership of promoting caste based discrimination. Sarkar along with a group of party workers joined the newly-formed Dalit Samajtantrik Dal, recently floated by another former MLA and ex-communist leader Nakul Das. Jiten Sarkar alleged that Scheduled Caste people were dominated by members of other castes within the CPM party and many able leaders were ditched only because they belonged to the Scheduled Caste.[3]

4. Tamil Nadu, Dindigul District: January 14 2010. In a shocking case of caste discrimination, a group of ‘high caste Christians’ forced a Scheduled Caste named Sadayandi to eat human faeces for walking with chappals in their street at Melakoilpatti village coming under Nilakottai circle and Batlagundu police station limits in Dindigul district.

Sadayandi, who is from Indira Nagar in Meikovilpatti in Dindigul district, claimed the incident occurred on January 7 when a group of more than 10 'caste Christians' stopped him and asked if he was not aware of the “order” that Scheduled Castes should not walk with chappals in their street. Then they abused him by his caste name, asked him to remove his chappals. The group comprising Arockiasamy, David, Selvendran, Kennedy, Kannadasan, Peter and Anbu beat him up. Two of them then forced his mouth open and thrust excrement down his throat. They later smeared his face with it.

The Batlagundu police on Friday, January 15, filed a case against Arockiasamy and 20 others under Sections 147, 148, 341, 323, 355, 324, 506 (2) of the Indian Penal Code and Sections 3(1) (10) and 3(1)(3) of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities Act),1989. A. Kathir, Executive Director, Evidence, said that complaints had been sent to National Human Rights Commission, State Human Rights Commission and Chief Secretary. No arrest has been made so far.[4]

Do you hear the deafening silence from the communists who would have held long protest marches and written abusive articles in their propaganda organ ‘Deshabhimani’ if the same had been done by the so-called ‘savarna’ Hindus in Tamil Nadu? Any atrocity on the Scheduled Castes either by the Christians or by the Muslims is met with indifference and stony silence, because, in India, the communists interpret class conflict as conflict only with Hindu Forward Castes. The Marxist youth organization DYFI would have indulged in acts or vandalism and arson in the name of these very same Scheduled Castes, if only a finger of suspicion had pointed to the other Hindu castes. But on knowing that the caste discrimination and oppression was done by Christians, these wretched communists became scarce.

The loud protestations by CPM in the matter of caste discrimination do not arise from their desire to reform the society or to uplift the deprived masses, but from their malicious agenda to denigrate Hinduism and wean the Hindu people away from the path of spirituality. The only effective barrier to Christianization or Islamization of Bharat is Hindu spirituality and that is what the communists are out to destroy.

5. Mata Amritanandamayi Devi Math targeted by CPM: 26/05/2008. It is learnt that the ultimate target of violence unleashed by the LDF and its affiliated organizations is the Mata Amritanandamayi Devi Math. The real intention of the LDF Govt. is not to rein in the fraudulent spiritual leaders and their money-spinning centres but to curb the Hindu spiritual wave sweeping India in general and Kerala in particular.

The ‘Hunt for Godmen’ operation, which was skilfully implemented under the direct control of the CPM leadership, as part of the second anniversary celebrations of the LDF government lead to anarchy in the state. In order to give an impression of fairness the then communist government started a few bogus enquiries against some Christian healing centres while they physically attacked dozens of Hindu ashrams. This action of CPM is based on their assessment that the expanding Hindu spiritual awareness is a big threat to the growth of communist ideology in the state. So they find it imperative to crackdown on the Hindu spiritual leaders and ashrams in the state.

Initially, the gullible Hindus of Kerala supported the move of the government thinking that it is only against fraudsters irrespective of religion. But soon the Hindus came to realize the discriminatory behaviour of DYFI goondas and the partisan Kerala Police towards the Hindu community and started venting their hurt feelings.

Among all the Hindu spiritual leaders, Her Holiness Mata Amritanandamayi Devi is perceived as the biggest threat by the CPM. The large-scale charitable activities undertaken by the Mata Amritanandamayi ashram and its heart-felt appreciation across the various sections of the Hindu population are causing serious erosion in the communist party voter base. The fact that the Forward Castes hold in high regard Mata Amritanandamayi, referred to lovingly as ‘Amma’ who belonged to the fisher community in her poorva ashramam is a direct ideological challenge to communist ideology of class conflict and caste hatred..

Her Holiness Mata Amritanandamayi reminds the Hindu people of their ancient vedic roots, since the two great itihaasas Ramayana and Mahabharata, were authored by Maharshi Valmiki and Maharshi Veda Vyasa who belonged to the hill tribe and fisher community respectively. This is intolerable to the communist party apparatchik.

The fact that Mata Amritanandamayi Ashram’s head office is in Kerala is another cause for worrying for the CPM. Although CPM had initiated indirect attacks against Amma’s Ashram long ago, they were waiting for an appropriate moment for a direct attack. CPM raked up a big controversy when AK Antony, the then Chief Minister visited Amma to seek blessings. Verbal attacks against Amma became a routine agenda in all conferences of DYFI since then.

The communists also know that a direct attack on the spiritual institutions is counterproductive since it would provoke a Hindu backlash. So they fine tuned a strategy to attack the fraudsters first along with a heightened propaganda to destroy credibility of all Hindu acharyas and spiritual leaders in the state. The ‘minority’-controlled mafia of mass media played a big part in the CPM propaganda in creating an environment of distrust and suspicion among the Hindu devotees towards their spiritual centres. CPM used its DYFI storm troopers to lead protest marches and to invade Hindu ashrams, manhandle and humiliate the unarmed inmates and destroy the ashram property. The DYFI goons are resorting to the attack spree in the full view of the state police which seems to have conveniently forgotten that they are responsible for guarding the law and order situation in the state. Now, in Kerala, anybody holding a red flag can trespass into any Hindu ashram and destroy its assets. However, the Hindu people with a spiritual bend of mind have started realizing the danger and have begun to come together to protest these heinous acts. This has also lead to incidents of retaliatory violence at some places.

The evil agenda of CPM is becoming more and more obvious. The DYFI leader has publicly demanded in a press conference that all activities of Amritanandamayi Ashram should be investigated. Moreover the CPM mouth piece Deshabhimani has also joined the chorus. In an article titled ‘Amritanandamayi Mutt: The Biggest Recipient of Foreign Funds’, the communist propaganda rag, ‘Deshabhimani’ has come up with several baseless allegations against the Mutt.[5]

The devotees should take note of the fact that Mata Amritanandamayi being a so-called ‘avarna’ in her poorva ashramam is of no consequence to the Hindu-hating, Hindu-abusing
casteist CPM.

The Hindu society is changing and adapting with the times. The Namboothiri community which welcomed Dayasimhan of Angadipuram, the convert from Islam[6], into their fold is again in the news. Namboothiri poojaris are approaching orphanages looking for brides. Parameswaran Namboothiry, State General Secretary of the Yogakshema Sabha said: “Being the wife of a poojari is no easy job as the bride has to follow rigid rituals, strict rules about purity and impurity and dos and don’ts about purification rites. If a girl from an orphanage is willing to adopt such a way of life, we have no problem accepting her either” The Hindu-hating, Hindu-abusing casteist CPM must be in a deep quandary. How should they react to such an ideologically perplexing event?
Should they cite Namboothiri poojaris approaching orphanages looking for brides as evidence of their having reformed the Hindu society of its caste evils and risk their cadres questioning the
casteist CPM, leaders for their stand against marrying Scheduled Caste girls
should they accuse the “Hindu Communalist” RSS of inciting Namboothiri poojaris to approach orphanages looking for brides, as this contradicts the Marxist practice of preaching class conflict and fomenting caste hatred, if so, then what is the appropriate Marxist phraseology to be used to abuse the Hindus in this particular context, without inviting ridicule and scorn from the public.

While the
casteist Marxists are stuck in a time-warp, the Hindu society is moving on.

Let me end this post with the following quote from Dr (Mrs) Annie Besant (1847-1933) a prominent leader of India's freedom movement who later became the President of the Indian National Congress. Dr Annie Besant declared most passionately on India and Hinduism:
“After a study of some forty years and more of the great religions of the world, I find none so perfect, none so scientific, none so philosophical and none so spiritual that the great religion known by the name of Hinduism. Make no mistake, without Hinduism, India has no future. Hinduism is the soil in to which India's roots are stuck and torn out of that she will inevitably wither as a tree torn out from its place. And if Hindus do not maintain Hinduism who shall save it? If India's own children do not cling to her faith who shall guard it? India alone can save India and India and Hinduism are one.”

Casteism practiced by the Communist Party- Part I
Related earlier posts

In my previous article I had mentioned two glaring instances of casteism perpetrated by the Communist Party (Marxist).

One, Political parties used the Backward Caste people as the vote bank all these years. K.R. Gowri was used by CPM and this lady faithfully stood for the party (and against the interests of Ezhava and other Backward Caste people) only to be kicked out when the time came for her to become the Chief Minister of Kerala. Why did the CPM indulge in casteism (which they allege against the NSS and by extension, the Nairs) by favouring the Forward Caste E.K Nayanar and preventing Backward Caste K.R. Gowri from becoming the Chief Minister in 1987 and later expelling her from the party?

Two, Why is the CPM projecting the Forward Caste Kodiyeri Balakrishnan and Prakash Karat while humiliating on a daily basis, the Backward Caste VS Achutanandan?

Does the alcoholic semi-literate communist rabble respond to these questions? NO! They pretend not to hear! Instead they whine: “NSS supported Congress because the previous CM was 'cultureless' VS, in words of the NSS head”. At first, I wondered, if they deaf and blind till it dawned on me that the communist propaganda rag ‘Deshabhimani’ did not answer these two questions! HA! So, the communist rabble needs to be told the correct answer, by a “Great Leader’ or a ‘Dear Leader’ in the North Korean manner! This behaviour raised two other questions, what are the types of people who are communists in India and what is the difference between the communists in India and those in neighbouring China?

Chinese communists are very patriotic and nationalistic. They will say that the Chinese culture is the best and is 5000 years old. While Indian communists who will follow Chinese communists would say that the Indian culture is the worst of all and that it was barbarian for the past 5000 years.

What are the types of people who are communists in India? One type, you can see every where, especially in Nair and Ezhava caste karayogam/Union meetings. They are the alcoholic, ‘10th pass’ communist chumattu coolie or head-load workers who read only the communist propaganda rag, ‘Deshabhimani’. These brainwashed communist zombies can only parrot what ever Deshabhimani dins into their pathetic little minds. The communist chumattu coolie, incapable of thinking as they are, can only repeat ad nauseam, the propaganda dished out by communist mouthpiece Deshabhimani’. If the ‘Deshabhimani’ is silent on any issue, such as the two questions mentioned above, they are perplexed, having no way to respond. So they get back to their boohoo victimhood: “Hindus like you hate CPM and VS not because they're 'communist', but because the prominent leaders are from Low Castes.” Even while they are wallowing in their pathetic victim complex, they think they are so wise, (perhaps wiser than Shankaracharya!) that they can read other’s minds!! And who are the “prominent leaders” of the CPM? Well, we will get back to that shortly. Let me make this clear, I have nothing but contempt for these communist coolies.

If after a hundred years of existence of the Backward Caste organizations their members cannot come out of their victim complex, there is something seriously wrong with the functioning of the Backward Caste organizations and they need to be wound up. I strongly feel the same of the NSS too, although for different reasons. I don’t blame the ordinary people, only their community leaders. I must remind them of Swami Vivekananda’s words: “If you have faith in all the three hundred and thirty millions of your Gods, … and still have no faith in yourselves, there is no salvation for you. Have faith in yourselves, and stand up on that faith and be strong; that is what we need.”

On this holy Krishna Janmashtami Day (Monday, 22-August-2011) observed on the Ashtami Tithi, the eighth day of the dark half or Krishna Paksha of the month of Bhadrapada (Malayalam Chinga Maasam) when the Rohini Constellation is ascendant, let me quote the Divine words of Sri Krishna in Bhagavad Gita.

Those who see everything through the narrow aperture of caste conflict ought to remember that Sri Krishna was born in the Yadava clan which is claimed to Be Backward Caste and he is dark-skinned too!

Verse 29 of Chapter 9 of Bhagavad Gita reads as follows:

This verse translates as: “I am equally disposed to all living entities; there is neither friend nor foe to me; but to those who with loving sentiments render devotional service to ME, such persons are in ME and I am in them.”

Bhagavan Sri Krishna says that all are equal before him, no matter what our race, caste, social standing, wealth or education may be.
Let us go to Verse 32 of Chapter 9 of Bhagavad Gita, which reads as follows:

This roughly translates as: “Oh Arjuna, even those who may be born of wombs of degraded women, merchants and menials, if they take full shelter in ME, they also attain the same goal.”

Bhagavan Sri Krishna treats you like any one else and offers you the same opportunity to reach HIM.

Now, would you trust a scheming, sniveling communist leader from Kerala and suffer life-long inferiority complex or would you trust Bhagavan Sri Krishna, have faith in yourselves, stand up for Dharma and be strong and respected? That is for you to decide. The fortunes of your families and communities depend on who you trust.

Coming back to the categories of communists, the other type, of communists is the traitorous lot. Again, let me quote the Patriot-Saint of India: “So long as the millions live in hunger and ignorance, I hold every man a traitor who, having been educated at their expense, pays not the least heed to them.” These are the convent-educated Macaulay’s illegitimate offspring’s who follow their mentor ‘India’s only Nationalist Muslim’ J.L Nehru, who wrote to his father from England: “Indians were bound to have self-government but ... not before a few aeons of geological time! This may mean anything between a few million years and wholly incomprehensive period. The chief difficulty was the want of education and some million generations will be required to educate them (Indians) up to the colonial standard”. This letter written at the age of 21 clearly establishes the fact that young Jawaharlal Nehru was deeply aware of the ‘supremacy’ of the British, and, all his life, suffered from pangs of intense inferiority in relation to the white Christian colonial rulers. [Nehru: India's last English PM! by D P Sinha, The Observer, November 12, 1997]

It is this second type of communists and crypto-communists who are proud of their caste but who feel it infra dig acknowledging their Hindu culture and civilization. You will find them functioning as office bearers in Communist Parties where they flaunt their Card-of-Membership. A West Bengal Finance Minister Ashok Mitra grandly proclaimed: “I am not a gentleman. I am a communist!” You will also find that the second type function as office bearers in Forward Caste organizations. Here they cleverly conceal their communist affiliations.

To quote a fiery Hindutva ideologue Shri V. Sundaram I.A.S: “HINDU CASTE BASED ORGANIZATIONS in British India were all essentially Hindu organizations rooted in Sanatana Dharma and being very proud of their Hindu identity and heritage. However, in the dirty communal anti-Hindu electoral politics of today, the caste-based organizations and political parties are trying to wean away people from their primordial Hindu roots. More particularly in Tamil Nadu and Kerala this seems to be the most serious political malady afflicting these two states. The classic instance of communal anti-Hindu politics relates to the NAIR SERVICE SOCIETY (NSS) in Kerala today. The grim tragedy is that the NSS is functioning like a subordinate office of the Christian Church in Kerala. The NSS is trying to reduce Nairs, the erstwhile warrior-defenders of Sanatana Dharma in Kerala, to a bunch of pompous vainglorious casteists having simultaneously, superiority complex towards other Hindu castes on the one hand and inferiority complex towards Christians and Muslims on the other.” (http://ennapadampanchajanya.blogspot.com/2010/05/sri-ram-swarup-fearless-intellectual_08.html)

It is the second type, the crypto-communists in the Forward Caste organizations, who are placing every possible obstacle in the Hindu Unity by casting aspersions on the other castes and alienating the latter. These crypto-communist anti-national elements who hae infiltrated the Forward Caste organizations try their best to sabotage the work of the Sangh Parivar in bringing about Hindu Unity. The foreign forces that are inimical to the Indian State benefit from the insidious machinations of these anti-national elements. In my opinion, these anti-national elements deserve a slow and painful death by torture.

The communist chumattu coolies whimper: “Hindus like you hate CPM and VS not because they're 'communist', but because the prominent leaders are from Low Castes.” Oh Really? M. N. Roy, Abani Mukherji, A. K. Gopalan Nambiar, P. Krishna Pillai, P. C. Joshi, Ajoy Ghosh, E. M. S. Namboodiripad, E. K. Nayanar, Charu Majumdar, Jyoti Basu, Shibdas Ghosh, T. Nagi Reddy, V.R Krishna Iyer. These are the prominent leaders and they were all of Forward Caste origins. Even the present day leaders Kodiyeri Balakrishnan and Prakash Karat are of Forward Caste origins. But what is the sense in talking about caste in communism?

If there is no caste in Christianity and if there is no caste in Islam then there is no caste in communism either. All three are ‘alien imperialist political ideologies’ (http://ennapadampanchajanya.blogspot.com/2010/07/does-not-represent-historical-and.html) inimical to Sanatana Dharma and India’s security, unity and integrity.

If a person comes out of a Church on a Sunday morning after a confession, wearing a crucifix, that person is not a Hindu, even if he calls himself “John Nair”.
If a person comes out of a Mosque on a Friday noon after saying namaaz, that person is not a Hindu, no matter what he calls himself.
Similarly, if some one talks communism, derides Hinduism and votes for a communist party, that person is not a Hindu at all, even if that person is a temple goer with sandalwood paste on his forehead.
A communist whether of Forward Caste origin or Backward Caste origin, is still a communist, and therefore deserving my absolute contempt, whether he calls himself Iyer or Nair or Namboodiripad or Nambiar or Pillai or any thing else.

Walt Whitman's description: “While the members who composed it [any Democratic Party National Convention prior to the Civil War] were, seven-eighths of them, the meanest kind of bawling and blowing officeholders, office-seekers, pimps, malignants, conspirators, murderers, fancy-men, custom-house clerks, contractors, kept-editors, spaniels well-trained to carry and fetch, jobbers, infidels, disunionists, terrorists, mail catchers, pushers of slavery, creatures of the President, creatures of would-be Presidents, spies, bribers, compromisers, lobbyers, sponges, ruined sports, expelled gamblers, policy-backers, monte-dealers, duellists, carriers of concealed weapons, deaf men, pimpled men, scarred with vile disease, gaudy outside with gold chains made from the people's money and harlots' money twisted together; crawling, serpentine men, the lousy combinings and born freedom-sellers of the earth.” aptly reflect my view of communists, irrespective of whether they consider themselves high caste or low caste.

The communist chumattu coolies will still lament: “NSS supported Congress because the previous CM was 'cultureless' VS, in words of the NSS head”.

Would you like to know about the ‘culture’ of VS?
Indian Army Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan (15 March 1977 – 28 November 2008) was serving in the elite Special Action Group of the National Security Guards (NSG). He was killed in action while fighting terrorists in the November 2008 Mumbai attacks. Karnataka Chief Minister B.S. Yeddiyurappa visited Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan’s grief-stricken father K. Unnikrishnan, who resided in Bangalore, to offer condolences. Though the Unnikrishnan’s family resided in Bangalore, they were of Kerala origin. Following criticism from the agitated mass media in Kerala, V.S Achuthanandan, then the Kerala Chief Minister along with his Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan visited the Unnikrishnan family only four days later. The grief-stricken father asked V.S Achuthanandan and Kodiyeri Balakrishnan to leave his home telling the ministers that they bothered to visit their Bangalore home only because of the harsh criticism from the mass media in Kerala and not because they genuinely wanted to share the family's grief.

In what is seen as the height of insensitivity that any politician can display, the ‘CULTURED’ VS Achuthanandan told TIMES NOW that had it not been for Major Sandeep, not even a dog would have visited his family. This was how the ‘CULTURED’ V S Achuthanandan heaped scorn today on the bereaved family of NSG Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan who died a heroic death facing enemy bullets during commando operations following the Pakistani Islamic terror attack on Mumbai.
Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan
The next day, Railway Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav, himself a Backward Caste politician, said he would ask the CPM leadership to show the door to the Kerala Chief Minister V S Achutanadan for his remark on the family of slain NSG commando Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan. Lalu Prasad said: “It is a very serious issue. What the CM has said is absolutely wrong and a great insult to our martyr. I would demand from the CPM Politburo to remove him. We are also in politics and at times people do not behave properly with us while venting out their anger. But we are in public life and we have to understand the sentiment. The martyr's father was in the state of shock and this should have been understood by the chief minister.” (http://www.expressindia.com/latest-news/Sack-Kerala-CM-says-Lalu-as-dog-remark-haunts-CPM/393250/4/)

Gulf News Foreign Editor Neena Gopal said, “Covering V S Achuthanandan on his campaign through Malampuzha district must rank as absolutely the most disagreeable in all her years of covering elections”.

This Class VII dropout politician VS Achuthanandan of high ‘CULTURE’ crossed all reasonable bounds of public decency in his criticism of former President APJ Abdul Kalam. During a Press conference while defending the Left stand on the controversial India-US nuclear deal Achuthanandan was asked what he had to say about the fact that even the former President A.P.J Abdul Kalam had approved the nuclear agreement, Achuthanandan replied: “Kalam, like ISRO Chairman Madhavan Nair and his predecessor Kasturirangan, have sent only Vaanams (fire-cracker rockets).” (reported in The Pioneer, 14-7-2008)

The latest provocation for the NSS leader G. Sukumaran Nair was the imprisonment of senior UDF leader R Balakrishna Pillai, member of the NSS directorial Board, in a corruption case pursued earnestly by V S Achuthanandan.

G. Sukumaran Nair, called the Chief Minister, Mr V.S. Achuthanandan, “uncultured” and the latter retaliated alleging that Sukumaran Nair belonged to the corrupt crop of leaders in the NSS. At a private meeting with the Marthoma Senior Metropolitan, Philipose Mar Chrysostom, at the NSS Head Quarters in Perunna on Tuesday, Mr Sukumaran Nair said the NSS had dumped the equidistance policy this time and sided with the UDF, to ensure “that man, the uncultured and undemocratic Achuthanandan did not return to power”. (http://www.deccanchronicle.com/channels/cities/kochi/nss-takes-right-turn-targets-achuthanandan-503)

The communist chumattu coolies will still gripe: “NSS supported Congress because the previous CM was 'cultureless' VS, in words of the NSS head”. This is a complete ‘Deshabhimani’ propaganda debunked by history. An average Keralite knows very well the ability of Marxist Party in cooking up lies and perpetuating them. The Marxists have been doing this for decades. There is nothing new about it. In fact, late Marxist ideologue, EMS Namboodirippad himself had been a pioneer of the Goebbelsean art of lying and propagating falsehoods. The attitudes adopted by the CP(M) on key national issues is still fresh in public memory. They have always taken stances, which are anti-national, and later done bizarre U-turns. Saying something one day and trying to escape from the onus of the statement through continued media statements has been a traditional Marxist tactic. During the Indo-China war of 1962, the then Communist Party adopted a dubious approach and said ‘India belongs to India and China belongs to China’, which effectively meant that the aggression of China was justifiable! Later, when confronted with the stigma of an overtly anti-national approach, the Communists retreated. All such lies and half-truths have been traditionally couched in the hallowed ideological posturing indulged in by the CPI(M). (‘How Deshabhimani can transform sheep to dog’ by Pradeep Ayroor, 13/03/2010,

NSS had originally supported the Congress since all its founder-leaders were all congressmen. Mannathu Padmanabhan a member of the Indian National Congress took part in the Travancore State Congress agitation against the casteist Sir C.P Ramaswamy Iyer’s autocratic administration. In 1959 Mannathu Padmanabhan led the church-inspired and American-backed ‘Vimochana Samaram’ of the Congress against the Communist Ministry in Kerala which had become unpopular. This ultimately resulted in the fall of the Communist Ministry led by the communist raajya-drohi EMS.

A long list of grouses against the Congress party, and possibly overt and covert actions of the Congress, made the NSS sore and its General Secretary P.K Narayana Panicker adopted the policy of ‘Equidistance’ from LDF and UDF. Perhaps, Sukumaran Nair whose fortunes were on the ascendant and who was shortly replacing Narayana Panicker, asserted his individuality by scrapping that policy of ‘Equidistance’ and returned the NSS to its original policy of supporting the Christian-dominated Congress. Church pressure cannot be ruled out as a contributing factor in this regard. So, supporting the Congress is its original policy of the NSS where it “functions like a subordinate office of the Christian Church In Kerala.” Note the meeting of Sukumaran Nair with the Marthoma Senior Metropolitan. The ‘equidistance’ was just a Narayana Panicker aberration. But that does not prevent ‘Deshabhimani from falsely alleging that NSS supported Congress because VS Achuthanandan was Ezhava. The communist coolies will continue repeating this canard, no matter what.

This brings us to the question. Is the NSS duty-bound to support Achuthanandan? His own party
1. dropped him from the Politburo, CPM's highest decision making body
2. imposed a gag order on him,
3. did not allow him the right to appoint ministers of his choice,
4. did not even allow him the power to appoint his own private secretary,
5. functionary KEN Kunhahammad had warned Achuthanandan not to project himself as a different man when the entire party was supporting Pinarayi. Kunhahammad also called Achuthanandan AN IMBECILE who was feigning not to understand the reality surrounding him. (http://haindavakeralam.com/HKPage.aspx?PageID=8125&SKIN=K)
6. dropped him, a sitting Chief Minister, as a candidate for the 2011 Kerala Assembly Elections and then reinstated him. They had done the same in 2006 Assembly Elections.

For five long years Achuthanandan was smarting from the daily pin pricks and humiliations heaped on him by his own CPM party. The NSS is in no way obliged to electorally support an individual who was shunned by his own party.

Yet ‘Deshabhimani asserts that NSS supported Congress and hates Achuthanandan because he is Ezhava. The communist coolies will continue repeating this canard, no matter what. Well, let me tell you this, a communist is neither a Hindu Ezhava nor a Hindu Nair. A communist is an enemy to Hinduism and a traitor to India.

What does the communist mouthpiece have to say about the casteist communist leader EMS Namboothiripad? EMS was a shrewd politician and a covert ‘sa-varnan’ though very few in Kerala had the courage to say so openly!
A.K.Gopalan Nambiar shed his caste name and became A.K. Gopalan.
K. Kelappan Nair became K. Kelappan,
Mannath Padmanabhan Nair became Mannath Padmanabhan.
However, the ‘ultra revolutionary’ E.M.Sankaran Namboothiripad did not become E.M. Sankaran! EMS wanted to use all the benefits and privileges of the caste name. And he used it quite effectively to subjugate all the CPM folks around him! Once in the late 80s or early 90s EMS criticised SNDP leaders as the torch-bearers and sycophants of the British Empire! The obvious reference was to Kumaran Asan who was honoured by the Prince of Wales with a Shawl! Also some SNDP leaders like C Krishan were not interested in the political struggle against the British. [C. Krishnan supported the British rule because he believed that freedom for rule without freedom from serfdom was meaningless. He was suspicious of the national freedom that would be won without putting an end to the social inequalities.]
inmates of the Ezhavodayam Lodge

Many later Communists including A.K. Gopalan were heavily influenced by the message of Sree Narayana Guru, a Hindu spiritual leader and an indefatigable social reformer, who was far ahead of his times. Communist Party in Kerala reaped great electoral benefits from his teachings. The communist parties used Ezhavas and Harijans as vote bank especially during 50s, 60s and 70s. In the early 30s while EMS was an intermediate student at St Thomas College Trichur, he was not a communist at all. When the inmates of the Ezhavodayam Lodge celebrated Bolshevik Revolution with Lenin's Picture (Trichur 1932) EMS was not a communist. Later EMS joined State Congress and by 40s left State Congress and became a Communist.

EMS Namboothiripad started the Note titled, “Bourgeois Narayana Guru’ with a comment on Raja Ram Mohun Roy who was a great reformer of his time (1828!). EMS himself notes that Roy died before the Communist Manifesto was even written (1848) not to talk about the Bolshevik Revolution. Still EMS seems to expect that it would have been better if Roy were not a ‘bourgeois’ but a proletariat or even Communist!

Was Sree Narayana Guru a “Bourgeois” in any sense of that word? Even with the generalmeaning (without any reference to Communism) ‘bourgeois’ are ordinary, conventionally respectable and unimaginative, humdrum; selfishly materialistic; money oriented and uncreative! Sree Narayana Guru was none of these! The only adjective which even remotely fits Sree Narayana Guru is “middle-class”. If we take the Communist meaning too into consideration a bourgeois is capitalistic, reactionary and an exploiter of the proletariat. Guru was not a reactionary! Sree Narayana Guru was not an exploiter of the proletariat!

Yet EMS described Sree Narayana Guru as a petty bourgeois reformer! The Communists of the 40s, 50s and 60s had this disease which made them view the world through the prism of the Communist Manifesto! Everyone, except the Communists, is reactionary in the best case and fascist in the worst case. EMS classified Sree Narayana Guru as a petty bourgeois reformer! This is not the only time EMS Namboothiripad made such foolish statements. Do the Ezhava ‘comrades’, who solidly stood by Achuthanandan and the CPM, understand that Narayana Guru does not need any certificate from CPM/CPI parties or any other political party for that matter? Do the Ezhava ‘comrades’ have anything to say about the casteist communist EMS denigrating the spiritual leader of their community?

K.R. Gowri was used by CPM and she faithfully stood for the party (and against the interests of Ezhava and low caste people) only to be kicked out when the time came for her to become the Chief Minister of Kerala. Later V.S. Achuthanandan too was stabbed from back. Neither EMS nor CPI/CPM parties contributed anything to take the basic mentality of the people forward. Rather, the leaders of these parties wanted the downtrodden to remain downtrodden victimized and made to feel inferior! Only then their assiduously created inferiority complex can be used to build a vote bank!

The communist propaganda organ ‘Deshabhimani’, the renowned practitioner of the Goebbelsean art of lying will continue to fabricate falsehoods and the communist automatons will continue to parrot them. I ask this question again, would you trust a scheming, sniveling communist leader from Kerala and suffer life-long inferiority complex or would you trust Bhagavan Sri Krishna, have faith in yourselves, stand up for Dharma and be strong and respected?

I take heart from the saying: “One can fool some people all the time and all people some time, but not all people all time.” This applies to communists who are on the retreat world-wide, except perhaps in North Korea!

VS Achutanandan is a hypocrite because he is Communist

VS Achutanandan is a hypocrite because he is Communist.

Related earlier post

I wrote this piece after reading the article titled “VS - Why are you a hypocrite?” dated 16/08/2011 in Haindavakeralam.com and the subsequent comments by one “sakhavu” which I reproduce below verbatim.

“Normal citizens have good doubts on this suspicious devaprasnam. It was for the royal family only to hide the real wealth thereby giving a chance to steal it. And the octogenarian was Correct in exposing it. T P Sundarajans soul will be happy hearing vs . And hk, your arguments may be correct but only out of context. Remember NSS Favoured Congress just because VS AND PINARAYI Were from lower caste.”

1. According to Sakhavu, “normal citizens” have “doubts” on this “suspicious” devaprasnam. Are “normal citizens” those unthinking semi-literate labourers who read only the communist propaganda rag, ‘Deshabhimani’ and regurgitate its contents wherever they go?

2. What is there to doubt in this particular devaprashnam? Devaprashnams have always been conducted in Temples by trained and accomplished astrologers. Padmanabha Swamy Temple devaprashnam was performed by an elite team of Daivajnas (renowned Vedic-Jyothishis), led by Brahmasree Madhur Narayana Ranga Bhat, Irinjalakkuda Padmanabha Sharma, Devidas Gurukkal, Pancha Bhaskara Bhat, Ganapathy Sharma, Jayaraj Panicker and Haridas Nampoothiri. If there was any concern about the integrity or competence about the quality of the experts who conducted the devaprashnam, the devout Hindu activist public of Kerala would have immediately put a stop to it. However, there are no dissenting voices against the devaprashnam in question, apart from the usual communist riff-raff.

Why are the communists so disaffected by the efforts of the Royal Family at preventing the politicians from laying their greedy hands on the Hindu wealth stored in the Lord Padmanabha Swamy Temple? It is their frustration at their attempts to steal the Temple wealth being thwarted by the Royal Family. So how do the communists react to this adverse turn of events? They accuse the Royal Family of trying to steal the great wealth that the latter has been safeguarding for centuries and which it is still doing so! There is a saying in Hindi, “ulta chor kothwal ko dantein”. The thief scolds the police officer!!

3. Why do you think the CPI(M) is infiltrating it's cadre to occupy the various posts in Devaswom controlled temples? They are even trying to enrol the pujaris in CITU Unions. Is it to loot the Hindu Temples of their Hindu wealth or to preserve protect and propagate what they contemptuously dismiss as “superstition” and “blind faith”?

4. The communists who rant and rave at Hindu religious rituals, culture and practices turn deaf, dumb and mute when other Semitic ideologies (Christianity and Islam) are concerned.

4a. The “hajis” who go on Umrah, a pilgrimage to Mecca, walk seven times counter-clockwise around the Kaaba. They drink “holy water” from the Zamzam Well. At Mina they throw stones to signal their defiance of the “Devil”. They also perform a cutting of the hair. But why doesn’t V.S Achutanandan find the practices of this desert Arab cult to be “superstition” and “blind faith”? Because, it is Islamic and therefore, by Communist perspective, “rational” and “scientific”. Only Hindu practices are “blind faith” for the communist traitors.

4b. Azagar Ali Thangal of Edapal, Malappuram is alleged to have amassed huge wealth by cheating people with his occult practice of Muttayeru (egg-throwing) to help seekers win over enemies. Till some years ago, Thangal was merely Azgar Ali, a debt-ridden young man of Edapal, who lived by selling anti-bug pesticides. He fled Edapal some years ago when the pesticide business crashed and he was neck-deep in debts. The reappearance of Azgar Ali was as Azgar Ali Thangal, a Muslim occultist who based his mysterious works on eggs. A local resident in Edapal said that the Thangal would give the miracle-seeker an egg, touched with magical potions, to be thrown on the wall of the enemy's house. [1] The occult business had been a tremendous 'hit' and within a short time Azgar Ali had earned crores of rupees by cheating people. Why doesn’t V.S Achutanandan find this cult a “blind faith”? Because it is Islamic and therefore, by definition, “rational” and “scientific”. Only Hindu practices are “blind faith” for the communist traitors.

4c. Ustad Kareem of Kalamthode Kozhikode quit his failing cycle workshop business. Suddenly he was running a faith healing centre by curing miracle-seekers of diseases merely with prayer. He soon built a palatial house with high compound walls thanks to the new business. But why doesn’t V.S Achutanandan find this cult a “blind faith”? Because it is Islamic and therefore, by definition, “rational” and “scientific”. Only Hindu practices are “blind faith” for the communist traitors.

5. What does V.S Achutanandan say about the Church stealing from “blind faith” to increase its numbers?

5a. It was reported in NDTV on Tuesday, 20th March 2007 that in the name of “inculturation” Father Romance Antony at the Jagat Jyoti Mandir in Neendakara Panchayat, Kollam District, Kerala State and his congregation sit cross-legged on the floor listening to bhajans. The pulpit and pews are missing. There isn't even a crucifix behind what should have been the altar. Christ is represented as seated in padmasana like the Buddha under the Bodhi tree. Christ and his disciples are shown seated eating from banana leaves. And atop the Church is a huge "Om" where there's normally a crucifix. [2]

5b. The Christians under the guise of “inculturation” have been building their places of worship like Hindu temples, calling their prayer halls ‘ashrams’, pray to their Gods with Sanskrit slokas, their clergy and evangelists wearing saffron robes, sporting vermillion, kumkum, sandal paste on their foreheads and sporting Hindu names. When the sexual relationships between Priests and Nuns become exposed in the mass media, many times they try to take shelter under “Christian Yoga”.

5c. Sita Ram Goel, in his book “Catholic Ashrams”, lists 108 such Christian ashram in India, 4 in Nepal and 8 in Sri Lanka. His list includes Asha Niketan, Bangalore, Karnataka, Bethany Ashram (1938), Channapatna, Karnataka, Christa Sevakee Ashram (1950), Karkala, Karnataka, Christian Institute for the study of Religion and Society, Bangalore, Karnataka, Yesu Karuna Prarthanalaya, Kote, Mysore District, Karnataka. [3] The present Catholic ashrams have inherited that history of intrigue and subterfuge. A Catholic Jesuit priest by the name Robert De Nobili appeared in Madurai in 1607 clad in the saffron robes of a Sadhu with sandal paste on his forehead and the sacred thread on his body. He claimed to be “Brahmin” from Rome. He declared that he was bringing a message which had been taught in India by Indian ascetics of yore and that he was only restoring to Hindus one of their lost sacred books, namely the 5th Veda, called Yeshurveda (Jesus Veda). It passed for a genuine work until the Protestant Missionaries exposed the fraud “Roman Brahmin” about the year 1840.

5d. Brother Tanku and Brother Thomas Kutty, two “prayer-healers” from Kottayam district started a healing session at Putharikkandam grounds in Thiruvananthapuram on Thursday, 22-May-2008. 'Swargeeya Virunnu' (Heavenly Feast), the forum, under which Brother Tanku and Brother Thomas Kutty perform their prayer-healing, claims to provide cure for diseases with no known cure in the medical field. Legal experts point out that this practice is illegal as the Drugs and Magic Remedies Act of 1954 had banned such sessions. The 'Brothers' had issued huge newspaper advertisements in which, at least 20 persons including women, had explained their unbelievable experience by certifying that they had attained cure by attending their healing session. Income Tax sources say that the duo had amassed at least Rs 20 crore from unknown sources.[4] Why doesn’t V.S Achutanandan find this “acculturation” to be blind copying of “blind faith”? Because it is Christian and therefore, by communist perspective, “rational” and “scientific”. Only Hindu practices are “blind faith” for the communist traitors.

5e. A small boy has claimed that he was born with a defective foot and by praying to Sr.Alphonsa he has become normal! Immediately the Vatican investigators proclaimed it as a miracle. They also got a panel of Christian doctors to certify it as a miracle. What is V.S Achutanandan’s take on Pope Benedict XVI conferring sainthood on Sister Alphonsa based on manufactured miracles or aren’t Catholic “miracles” to be considered “blind faith”?

6. Now coming back to the Hindu wealth (not, treasure) stored in Lord Padmanabha Temple.
The Royal Family of the erstwhile Kingdom of Travancore preserved and protected the vast wealth and saved it first from the jihadi looters and mass murderers, namely, Hyder Ali and Tippu Sultan. When Hyder Ali attacked Calicut, the Zamorin sought asylum for his Royal Family in the Kingdom of Travancore, which was ruled by Dharma Raja. The Zamorin also sent his Treasury to Travancore. The contents of the Zamorin Treasury are now part of the wealth in the Lord Padmanabha Temple.
The Travancore Royal Family also prevented the British colonials from spiriting away the Hindu wealth in Lord Padmanabha Temple when the latter were forced to leave in 1947.
The Royal Family also prevented the political goondas of the likes of A. Raja and Azhagiri from looting all that wealth.
Maharaja Marthanda Varma (1706-1758) after enlarging the Kingdom from Kanyakumari to Kochi surrendered the Kingdom to Lord Padmanabha. He and his successors ruled as “Padmanabha Dasa”. The last crowned King of Travancore Kingdom, Sri Chithira Thirunal Balarama Varma Maharaja(1912-1991) would walk from the Palace to the Temple, barefoot, like a true “Servant of Lord Padmanabha” and worship with genuine humility. There was worship in his stance and devotion in his eyes, which used to tear over when taking the Lord’s name.[6]

Propelled by a rare spirit of public accountability and good governance, the Royal Family hoarded up the Hindu wealth in the sacred Temple premises thereby preventing their own members from splurging it on themselves in the grandest possible manner like the Royal Family of Bikaner and other Princely States. Public accountability and good governance vanished from Kerala after the Maharaja of Travancore signed the Instrument of Accession to India and waived off his ruling powers.

I sincerely believe that the Travancore Royal Family deserves the Bharat Ratna for successfully protecting and preserving the vast amount of Hindu wealth in the Temple of Lord Padmanabha over the centuries.

After the state of Kerala was created, Devasom Boards were created to help run the affairs of isolated temples smoothly. This governing body which included Mannathu Padmanabhan and R. Shankar took over the reins. The Kerala Hindu society thought that this would help organize the temples of Kerala along sound lines. However, most of the tenants of temple lands were non-Hindus. The cunning moves of P.T.Chacko, the Communist Home Minister, led to the lands owned by the Churches and Mosques and also the lands owned by Christian owned large plantations being exempt from the ambit of land reforms. Mannathu Padmanabhan, though of unimpeachable personal integrity, looked on in indolence, indifference and apathy as the Hindu Temple lands and the lands owned by the Nairs and Nambuthiris got alienated. The once wealthy temples were reduced to penury almost overnight creating the circumstances which helped the so-called secular government to assert its authority over the Hindu Temples since it had become almost impossible to meet the day-to-day needs of the temples without government help. What began to crumble were not just the Hindu Temples but also the faith of the Hindus in Sanatana Dharma. What stood in the way of the spread of communism was Hindu spirituality. By impoverishing the temples, the evil intentions of the arch-traitor EMS Namboothiripad succeeded! Every succeeding government in Kerala worked to weaken Hindu culture. Customs gradually died out and many temple arts became extinct. This strengthened communist thinking. Malabar, where many temples had been destroyed earlier by Islamic invader Tipu, became a fertile breeding ground for the pernicious ideology called communism.[7]

7. The present Head of the Travancore Royal Family Sree Uthradom Thirunal Marthanda Varma continues the benevolent traditions of the previous Kings by converting his Palace at Pattom in Trivandrum City to a hospital known as Sree Uthradadom Thirunal Hospital. Lord Padmanabha and the Temple are the centres of existence for the Travancore royalty. Sri Marthanda Varma reverently says, “We were rulers on His behalf…When we have guests, my wife and I serve them sometimes. In fact, a media person from Germany, who probably expected me to dress in fine clothes, mistook me for my secretary!”. These are the self-effacing Royal “Servants of Lord Padmanabha”. Who do you think the people of Travancore would trust? Would they trust their Royal Family or would they trust the loudmouth buddhi jeevis who are nothing more than vocal prostitutes who are paid and kept by the communist party?

8. What happened to Thiruvattar Adhikesesavaperumal Temple, Tamil Nadu after the Travancore Royal Family handed over the administration to the Tamil Nadu Government? The entire gold covering from Lord Perumal Swamy’s neck to ankle was stolen. The records of the Temple wealth were burnt and the wealth was plundered. Are the interests of the poor being met by this plunder? Are the interests of the poor Hindus safeguarded when the Temple gold finds its way to the oddayaanam around the waist of a daughter of a concubine of a Tamil Nadu politician?

9a. The Communist buddhi jeevis want to keep all the valuable articles found in the temple vaults in a state museum, for public exhibition. They have put in practice this theft methodology which prescribes that religious and devotional items are to be exhibited as artefacts in museums. This has happened in the communist Soviet Union, communist Chinese mainland and the Chinese Occupied Tibet. The treasures of monastery of the Holy Trinity at Sergiyev Posad one of the biggest and wealthiest monastic enclaves in Europe and the spiritual apex of Russian Orthodox Christianity were sent to a museum by the Soviet communists in 1917 after the Bolshevik Revolution. In 1945 when Joseph Stalin returned the monastery to the church and service was restored in the cathedral to shore up the support of the Russian Orthodox Church for the war against Nazis, most of its treasures were found to be lost. Same is the case with the Alexander Nevsky Monastery at St Petersburg.[5]

9b. According to a study by John Powers in 2006, in 1959, 6,000 Buddhist monasteries were destroyed in Tibet by communist China and enormous treasures were robbed under the pretext of keeping them in museums. The famous Sakya and Lithang Tibetian Buddhist monasteries were looted of the treasures and then bombed. When a team of Tibetan Buddhist monks visited China in 1982-83 to retrieve Tibetan artefacts a Chinese communist official told them in Beijing that most of the statues were destroyed and those of pure gold and silver were taken away. Those of gilded copper, bell metal, red copper brass were ferried to Luyun from where they were eventually sold to foundries. A foundry situated five kilometres to the east of Beijing, alone purchased 600 tons of Tibetan crafted metals and melted them down. Religious texts were burnt and mixed with field manure and sacred Mani stones were used for making toilets and pavements by the communists. (1996 Official Report of Central Tibetan Administration).[5] This is what will happen to the Hindu wealth stored in Lord Padmanabha’s Temple if it is moved to a museum. That bulk of Hindu wealth will be lost forever.

I can’t resist writing a few words about our home-grown “sakhavus” or Comrades as the rest of the world know them. It is an unwritten rule among Communists in India that, Comrades born in Hinduism should be Atheists but Muslim and Christian comrades necessarily don’t have to be Atheists. Hindu Communists are allowed to worship God in secret but the communist party won’t take any responsibility if some one exposes it. V.S Achuthanandan revealed his “blind faith” when he paid a visit to the Sabarimala Ayyappa Swamy Temple on 31st December 2007. Kodiyeri Balakrishnan’s poomoodal offering in Kadampuzha temple was covered up with much effort. A state level leader may escape disciplinary action but strict action will be taken if any local Communist leaders visit Hindu Temples or conduct Hindu religious rituals. In Kannur CPM Branch Secretary VV Mohanan is expelled from the party for allowing a religious function to be staged (Muthappan Vellattam) in front of his house. Hindu comrades whisper among themselves, why was no warning was given to CPM leader AP Abdullakutty and other communist leaders from Malappuram for conducting Haj pilgrimage? Why was no disciplinary action taken against their Muslim comrades who go to mosque 5 times a day with Islamic fervour?[8] The Hindu comrades have only themselves to blame for their sad plight.

A housekeeper of a Christian priest found a notebook with a bookmark in it. The priest was famous for his “fire and brimstone” sermons. Wondering about the contents of his next speech the housekeeper cautiously opened the page at the bookmark and found a comment on the margins, “argument weak here, YELL LIKE HELL”! It is the same with our “sakhavus”. When the argument gets weak they accuse the opponent of Casteism! They will tell you that the NSS favoured Congress just because VS and Pinarayi were from lower caste.
Let us forget for a moment that the founder-leaders of the Nair Service Society were all congressmen and ask, why did the CPM indulge in the very same casteism by favouring the Forward Caste E.K Nayanar and preventing Backward Caste Gowriamma from becoming the Chief Minister in 1987 and later expelling her from the party?
Why is the CPM projecting the Forward Caste Kodiyeri Balakrishnan and Prakash Karat while humiliating on a daily basis, the Backward Caste VS Achutanandan?

On 20 April 1653, Oliver Cromwell attended a sitting of the Rump Parliament and listened to one or two speeches after learning that the Rump Parliament was attempting to stay in session despite an agreement to dissolve and despite having failed to come up with a working constitution. With his patience exhausted Cromwell stood up and harangued the Members of the Parliament.
“You have sat too long for any good you have been doing lately ... Depart, I say; and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!” This is what I have to say the communists: “Depart, I say; and let us have done with you. In the name of Lord Padmanabha, GO! GET LOST!!”

National Museum Institute Vice-Chancellor CV Ananda Bose has decided to go ahead with its plan to open the vault and assess its contents despite the devaprashnam verdict to the contrary. Let Ananda Bose declare that he has no objection to the secret underground floors of the Taj Mahal[9] be opened before he opens the secret chambers in the Lord Padmanabha Temple. The Hindu organizations must similarly move petition in the Supreme Court to open the secret underground floors in the Taj Mahal, or better still threaten to organize a million-man karseva to open the secret chambers in the Taj Mahal, if the secret chambers in the Lord Padmanabha Temple are opened.

Communism and Land Reforms Movement in Kerala

(A rebuttal to the Communist propaganda)

Land Reforms Bill was introduced in the Kerala Assembly in 1958 by the then EMS Namboodiripad-led Communist Government. This Bill with diabolical Communist-cunning deliberately left out industries and plantations out of its ambit. Large plantations were owned by the Church and Christian-owned companies. The plantations, where the Christians had an upper hand, after being bequeathed by the British, escaped confiscation while the Nairs and other land owning Hindus were squeezed out and impoverished. The lands that were seized from the land-owning Hindus, in the name of equitable distribution to the landless, eventually went into the possession of the non-Hindus, especially the Christians.

The spin that the Communists put out on the exemptions given to plantations was articulated by the CPI leader E. Chandrasekharan Nair who said, “the exemption from ceiling limits was originally granted to plantation crops based on the fact that plantations needed to be run as industries, with plantation workers being eligible for benefits that were unavailable to agricultural workers. The exemption was largely based on the interests of the plantation workers and also on the fact that the running of plantations required additional capital investment and technological inputs to increase production and productivity.” The fact of the matter is that the loud-mouthed Communists were incapable of taking on the powerful Church in Kerala.

Under the Land Reforms Act, cultivable lands had indeed been confiscated by the Communists and given to tenants. But this only helped in transforming the tenants into a new class of landlords.

If one studies a cross-section of farmers, most of the present-day large farmers come from large tenant backgrounds.[1]

Small farmers with little or no access to water bodies or kulams are often at the mercy of the monsoon. Crop failures drive them to the clutches of Christian money lenders and soon they become disposed of their small patches of land. The small tenant who was made owner of a small plot by the communists soon becomes a landless agriculture worker.

Land reform in Kerala did not really end capitalist landlordism or transfer agrarian power to agricultural labourers and poor peasants. As E.M.S. Namboodiripad famously remarked, the old janmi system was replaced by “landlordism of another type”, of landlords who get their lands cultivated through wage labour and those who live by lending money and dominated rural trade. [2]

The actual agricultural workers including Scheduled Castes continued to remain landless after 52 years of much tom-tommed “Land Revolution” by the Communists. Adivasis, the natural occupiers and keepers of forests, constitute only one per cent of the Kerala population but almost 65 per cent of them remain landless. Scheduled Castes form about 15 per cent of the Kerala population and almost half of them do not have lands for house or farming.

“How many Communist leaders are there in Kerala who do not have homes or lands?” fumes Satheesan of Mananthavadi, an activist of the Adivasi Gothra Mahasabha. [3]

A stock-taking of the land situation after 52 long years of the operation of the Land Reforms Movement proves that the entire process was a farce. After all these years, the statistics with the CPI(M)-led Government show that five percent of the 3.25-crore people of the State do not own even a square inch of land while individuals like Janata Dal (S) MLA MV Sreyamskumar, whom the CPI(M) had been protecting, are holding hundreds of acres of land in the name of plantations (Mr Sreyams himself admits that he owns 64 acres of land in own his name, excluding the lands of his relatives). [3]

Kerala’s Communists in general, and the CPI(M) in particular, have always claimed that foundation of the entire progress the State has achieved since its formation in 1956 is the land and education reforms movements initiated by their Communist Government way back in 1958. This is the incessant barrage of propaganda which they constantly din into the ears of their
ചുമട്ടു കൂലി semi-literate, feeble-minded, labour-class supporters.

Now, half a century later, the Marxists themselves are admitting through their current struggles for land for Adivasis and farm workers that the Land Reforms Movement had miserably failed in attaining its goal of confiscating surplus lands held by capitalists/feudalists and distributing them among landless farmers, Adivasis, Dalits and other downtrodden people.[3]

While the Islamic fanatic Tipu Sultan “the butcher from Mysore” destroyed two thousand temples in the Malabar region to establish the supremacy of Islam, it was the British rulers acting at the behest of Christian missionaries who dug the grave of the Kerala temples. The wily British accomplished this not by resorting to anything so crude and beastly as demolishing them: but by simply confiscating all of them “in the name of the state” of course along with all their landed properties and then making sure that the temples withered away from calculated and steady attrition. [4]

The British in 1810 made the then ruler of Travancore, Rani Lakshmi Bai, appoint the British Resident, Colonel John Munro, as Dewan of the Travancore Kingdom as well. Munro who was a committed Christian missionary as well as a ruthless colonialist, naturally considered it his pious duty to debilitate the Hindu religion and at the same time foster Christianity. He achieved both these aims by the simple expedient of taking over by a Government fiat nearly all the temples of Travancore and Cochin and also by seizing all their landed Temple properties without any compensation whatsoever. [4]

More than three hundred of the biggest temples of Travancore were appropriated by the Government under a Devaswom Board. At the same time, Munro issued hundreds of munificent land grants to the Christian Churches. Land was grabbed from Hindu Temples and gifted to Christian Churches.

The Resident-Dewan-missionary had seen to it that the records of the sequestered Temple lands and of lands were thoroughly intermixed; so much so that it had been made quite impossible to catalogue Temple lands separately from Government lands. [4]

Very soon after Independence the Congress Government enacted the Land Reforms Act which was so crafted that it effectively denuded the temples of what little bits of land that still remained with them but left unmolested the lands owned by the churches and mosques. The Central Government also did its “secular act” of destroying temples by confiscating by special legislation again with absolutely no compensation—the vast forest lands of the Malabar temples. These lands were promptly taken over by Christian and Muslim encroachers.

This war of attrition waged on the Hindu Temples of Kerala for over two centuries picked up momentum after the formation of Kerala State in 1956. The double-dealing and double-crossing politicians led by the arch-traitor EMS Namboodiripad, wearing the mask of anti-Hindu secularism, were only too glad to betray the Hindu voters by heaping further blows on the temples.

This convenient excuse that “it was no longer possible to distinguish Temple lands from state lands” which made shameless use of outright brigandage, was to be used in the future times without number by the Government and double-dealing and double-crossing  fork-tongued Communist and non-Hindu politicians not only to hang on to the Hindu Temple properties but also to foil the feeble attempts made by spiritual-minded and patriotic Hindus from time to time to claim compensation for the illegally seized Temple lands.[4]

While this sequestration and annexation of Temple lands had been going on for the last two hundred years, no Government of Kerala past or present, had ever dared to take over the vast land holdings of a single church or mosque. Moreover, to get Muslim goodwill all the immense wakf properties in Kerala (and in the whole of the rest of India, as this is a Central Government Act) have also been exempted from the Buildings and Rent Control Act, which is now strangling the remaining few buildings of temples and ashrams.

Repeated frantic requests for a few acres of forest land for the provision of some basic amenities for the millions of pilgrims converging on the forest Temple at the Sabarimala Sri Sasta Temple have been flatly turned down on the ground that forest land cannot be alienated without the permission of the Centre. At the same time ten hectares of forest land were granted in a jiffy to build a church" proclaimed by the bishops as a rival pilgrim centre "close to the Sabarimala temple. And the successive Governments of Kerala in the last fifteen years have been falling over each other to provide free titles to the well-organised, Church-backed Christian encroachers to huge areas of forest land, running into more than a million acres. [4]

In Kerala, Government control has rendered innumerable Temples dysfunctional. Besides, under the Kerala Land Reforms Act, over 12,000 acres of Guruvayoor temple’s land has been reduced to a mere few hundred acres.  Now most of those lands are owned by the Muslims. In Sabarimala, 2,500 acres of Temple land has been sold by the Government’s Devaswom Board. Although the church is the largest real-estate owner in the country, no church land has ever been confiscated or otherwise alienated by the Government. [5]

The LDF Communist Kerala Government completed procedures in 2009 to allot free land to private schools and colleges run by Christian and Moslem religious institutions in the State. Some of these are already housed in government land that has been technically leased to them. The lease amounts have not been paid by these institutions for decades and the arrears come to hundreds of crores of Rupees. No Government dares to recover the dues out of fear of minority community protests. KP Rajendran, Kerala Revenue Minister, who is from the CPI, said that St.Thomas College, St.Mary’s College, Christ College, St.Albert’s College, Ponnani Moslem Education Service College would be the initial beneficiaries. Other institutions will be accommodated as soon as they submit applications. 10 to 25 acres are expected to be thus allotted to each institution. An acre of land [an acre is 100 cents] in the vicinity of these colleges is valued at a minimum of 10 to 15 crores of Rupees. In return for the land, the minority communities would support LDF candidates from the minority communities at the Parliamentary elections. [6]

For the Communists total destruction of Hinduism and conversion of Hindus to atheism and later on to Islam or Christianity is the ultimate goal. Naturally the greatest beneficiaries of the Communist Land Reforms Movement in Kerala were Christians and Muslims, and the greatest losers were the Hindu temples and Hindu people.

Harrisons Malayalam Ltd owns 20000 hectares of land in Kerala according to their corporate website. Why don’t the Communists eye these lands owned by the arch capitalists? The CPM sees the stated enemies, the arch-capitalists as financiers and business partners and not class-enemies. This is the new and modern “pragmatic” Communism of Pinarai Vijayan and Kodiyeri Balakrishnan!

The Communists see the small Hindu subsistence farmer as “class enemy”. They have raised the farm wages to such un-economical levels and placed every possible structural obstacle in the path of paddy production that Hindu farmers are abandoning paddy cultivation in large numbers. This wanton destruction of paddy cultivation is a deliberate Communist stratagem to make the lives of the common agrarian Hindu farmers including Dalits, miserable. The farm lands, where paddy was cultivated, are either remaining barren or have been converted for other purposes.

Due to Communist depredation, the native crops have been given the short shrift and replaced with monoculture crops like rubber. These crops do not require labour, as in paddy, displacing millions of land dependent labourers and reducing them to penury.

Significantly, land reform did not increase agricultural production or rural employment in the State. In fact, one of the most visible results of the land reform legislation was the extreme fragmentation of land, the oft-cited reason for making agriculture a low-profit venture in the State. [2]

The highest per-capita rate of suicide in agrarian areas is in Kerala. Of these suicides vast majority of deaths are of Hindus. All these suicides can be counted among the blessings and benedictions of the Land Reforms Movement of the Communists.
