This article is the third part of the series “Communists, the constant antagonists of the Indian state”. In this series of articles, I will be pointing and briefing down the incidents which make Communists, the constant antagonists of the Indian state.

Here is the link to the previous 2 articles of this series –
Communists, the constant antagonists of the Indian state – Part 1
Communists, the constant antagonists of the Indian state – Part 2

So far, i have stated 10 instances in two different articles which authenticates the title of the series “Communists, the constant antagonists of the Indian state”. Let’s dip down to hunt another such instances to substantiate the assertion.

11- Communist Party of India – Marxist passed a resolution hailing the Tiananmen Square Massacre undertaken by the Chinese Government. 10454 people was killed in the Tiananmen Square Massacre.The Tiananmen Square massacre, known as the June Fourth Incident in China, were a student-led demonstrations held in Tiananmen Square, Beijing during 1989. In what is known as the Tiananmen Square Massacre ,troops armed with assault rifles and accompanied by tanks fired at the demonstrators and those trying to block the military’s advance into Tiananmen Square. The protests started on April 15 and were forcibly suppressed on June 4 when the government declared martial law and sent the People’s Liberation Army to occupy parts of central Beijing. Thousands were wounded because of this incident.

12- CPI-M stood against the Pokhran test which the India conducted. CPI-M supported supported North Korea of being a nuclear power but stood up against its own nation India for the same. According to the CPIM, mouthpiece, North Korea had a legitimate right and a legitimate need to carry out nuclear tests, but not India. Initially, when the Pokhran happened where India became a nuclear power, CPIM’s excuse was of non-proliferation and all sorts of supposed humanitarian concerns but the hypocrisy and double standards of CPI-M got exposed almost a decade later when North Korea carried out nuclear tests. According to the CPIM, mouthpiece, North Korea had a legitimate right and a legitimate need to carry out nuclear tests. The CPI-M shifted the blame for the North Korea’s action towards United State of America. The Chief Minister of Kerala Pinarayi Vijayan even applauded Kim Jong-Un for the tough anti-US stand.

13- Inside the campus of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), the members of the student wing of the communist parties has time and again indulged themselves in the anti national activities. The student wings involved in these incidents are mainly All India Student Association (AISA), All India Student Federation (AISF) , Democratic Student Union (DSU) and Democratic Student Federation (DSF).Sometimes they prepare nude and objectionable posters of deities on their computer and affix it on wall to hurt the religious feelings of the society. The students associated with these organisations mourned the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru, they celebrated the killing of CRPF jawans in Chattisgarh’s Dantewada, they asked for beef in hostel mess, they worshipped ‘Mahisasur’ in place of Goddess Durga during ‘Navratra’ festival and they also invited Kashmiri separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani for meeting, however, JNU authority imposed ban on it. The professors too inside the campus leaning towards the Communist ideology act no different from these student groups. The professors through their teaching run their agenda to break the oldest civilization Bharat into pieces. Nivedita Menon who is a professor at JNU was found telling a large group of students that Kashmir to not belong to India , aazadi slogans are rightly being raised by Kashmiri muslims and India should be giving freedom to Kashmir. She talks about plebiscite but very carefully hides the situations which were decided for having a plebiscite.

14- On 9th of February, 2016 an event was organised by the Communist students of JNU to commemorate the second anniversary of the hanging of Terrorist Afzal Guru who was involved in the terrorist attack which happened in the Parliament. Kanhaiya Kumar was the member of AISF and was the President of JNU Students Union. Kanhaiya Kumar was the one who was involved in the incident. Anti National slogans like “Bharat tere tukde honge Inshallah Inshallah” were also raised during the event. The Desi comrades of JNU accused the Supreme court judges for giving a death sentence for Terrorist Afzal Guru. The slogans followed against the Supreme Court judges “Afzal hum sharminda hai tere qatil jinda hai”. Time and again, voices are being raised by the members of the these communist student organisations regarding the breaking of Kashmir from Bharat. The same Kanhaiya Kumar termed the security forces of India, the Indian Army as rapists. On 8 March 2016, speaking at an International Women’s Day event, Kumar referred to the rape of Kashmiri women committed by personnel of the Indian Army. These claims made by Kanhaiya Kumar holds absolutely no water. These types of pointless words ,sentences and slogans have always been the list of activities the student organisations of communist parties undertake.

15- In 2017, during the Doklam standoff the frictions between India and China were high and India was in no mood to back off. Instead of supporting India ,the Communist Party of India- Marxist stood up with China. CPI-M stressed that India must allow Bhutan to take the lead in the negotiations with China and take a step back. Perhaps the idea of the CPI-M was that China to sway over Bhutan and take away the land which was in contestation. Not only did the polical party took China’s side but also pinned the blame on the Indian government for the dispute. The reason they gave was “India has openly sided with the US position on the South China sea, India has opposed the Belt and Road initiative. Within the country the Modi government has increased the profile of Dalai Lama and the so called provisional government, which are serious irritants for China”.
