Casteism practiced by the Communist Party- Part I

via Ghatotkacha Nair - published on August 23, 2011

In my previous article titled ‘VS Achutanandan is a hypocrite because he is Communist.’ 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 another question, 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.”

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’ ( 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.

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.” (

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”. (

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,
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. (
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.]

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!
