“Bharat Tere Tukde Honge Inshallah Inshallah”, the idea to break Bharat into several parts is not something which popped up from the mind of Kanhaiya Kumar. Neither this came from Bharat hating Nivedita Menon nor from any JNUite. Yes they are the proponents of this filthy and never happening idea but they are not the ones who manufactured it. The idea to break Bharat into several parts was built before the Independence of Bharat. Though this idea has always been crushed plenty number of times by the Nationalistic ideas but still it has some life left in it. And it seems Rahul Gandhi is trying tooth and nail to revive the idea of breaking Bharat into several parts or is trying to revive what is famously known as “GANGADHAR ADHIKARI THESIS”
Gangadhar Adhikari was a prominent Communist theoretician as well as one of the main apologists for the creation of Pakistan. He was one of the main leaders of Communist Party of India. Gangadhar Adhikari in 1942 predicted that India is not a nation and will be divided into parts in coming years. He said “The rational kernel in the Pakistan demand is that wherever people of the Muslim faith living together in a territorial unit form an nationality , they certainly have the right to autonomous state existence just like other nationalities in India such as Andhras, Karnatakis, Marathis, and Bengalis.” The thesis hatched by him in 1942 which said that ‘Indian’ is not a ‘Nationality’ but a collection of 18. Left Parties Have Always Shown Allegiance to Their Global Masters than Support National Interest.
Let us look at the instances that tell us how Communists have earned the title of being the “Constant Antagonists” of the Indian State.
1- The Communist Party of India was not founded in India but in Tashkent which is the capital of Uzbekistan. Uzbekistan is a central Asian nation and former Soviet Republic. Back then, the party was control by Communist International that advocated world communism, controlled by the Soviet Union. Communist international was the Soviet propaganda machine whose mission was Global Communism. So party before country is nothing new for the communist parties residing in India.
2- Arun shourie in his book “The only Fatherland” writes that the Communist Party of India was officially against the Quit India movement because the Soviet Union didn’t want them to join. The orders given by Soviet union of not participating in the struggle was kept and the communist party quite unapologetically betrayed the freedom struggle.
3- Even before Independence, during the Second World War, in 1939, when the USSR and Nazi Germany were on the same side, undivided Communist Party of India (CPI) refused to oppose Hitler. However, when Hitler invaded Soviet Union in June 1941, Moscow told Indian communists that the real fight was between fascism and the Allies. Therefore, they should support the British in their war effort. The CPI dutifully did this, staying clear of the Quit India movement of 1942. Suddenly, the CPI became the loudest and most vocal supporter of the Allies and enemy of the Nazis.
4- The Bengal famine of 1943 was a famine in the Bengal province of British India (now Bangladesh and eastern India) during World War II. An estimated 2.1–3 million,out of a population of 60.3 million, died of starvation, malaria, and other diseases aggravated by malnutrition, population displacement, unsanitary conditions and lack of health care. THE famine was anthropogenic (man-made), wartime colonial policies created and then exacerbated the crisis. British Government was responsible for this crisis and death of 3 million people but the Communist Group in Bengal did not offer a single helping hand and event shows not to criticize the Britishers for the terrible Bengal famine. The communists came forward to praise the British government for their war efforts.
5- The Communist Party of Mexico was founded in 1917 by MN Roy ( Manabendra Nath Roy) who also co-founded China’s Communist Party. The Communist International and Communist Party of Great Britain sent Philip Spratt to work with MN Roy to set up the Communist Party of India. Philip Spratt (26 September 1902 – 8 March 1971) was a British writer and intellectual. Initially a communist sent by the British arm of the Communist International (Comintern), based in Moscow, to spread Communism in India. 1952, he stated that India must abandon its claim to the valley and allow the National Conference leader Sheikh Abdullah to ‘dream of independence’. It should withdraw its armies.
