‘Communism biggest threat to nationalism’ : Udayan Namboodiri

via Daily Pioneer published on December 17, 2006

KOZHIKODE : Comunism is the biggest threat to nationalism, said Udayan Namboodiri, Senior Editor of The Pioneer. Delivering the keynote address on Communist Terrorism, the Mother of all Threats, held under the auspicious of the Guruji Centenary Celebration Committee here on Sunday, he said that communists were percolating in the political and social spheres of the country and were causing problems.

The anti-nationalist activities and terrorist designs of the communists were getting exposed on a day-to-day basis in all parts of the country, he said. Communism was the greatest threat on human race, he added. In the communist stronghold of West Bengal alone, more than 20,000 people had been killed since 1977, he said.

In West Bengal, the Leftists were coming to power by manipulating elections. Even the electronic voting machines were being manipulated. Namboodiri said that the Leftists, who were totally opposed to the electronic voting machine once were now the fans of these gadgets. The reason for this was that they had developed special skills to manipulate the machines, he alleged.

The communists of Kerala and West Bengal were the major threats of Indian nationalism but the Hindutva forces had not grasped the seriousness of this threat properly, he said. They felt that communism was only a meagre presence in some corners of the country and had not taken the threat seriously. The communists were actively interfering in the successive governments in the country since 1970 piggy-riding on the backs of other political parties, he pointed out.

The Leftists were also able to befool the minorities of the country and EMS Namboodiripad had fooled the Muslims of Kozhikode and Thrissur with the formation of Malappuram district.

Islamic Fundamentalism had grown in the country and the gateway to this terrorism was West Bengal. Namboodiri added that there was an active presence of ISI in the Indo-Bangladesh region.

Chennai-based Vigil India director Radha Rajan, CI Isaac, head of the department of history, CMS College, Kottayam, and TS Gireesh Kumar, MG University also presented papers in the seminar. RSS leader Krishna Gopal and historian E Balakrishnan also presented papers.

The morning session of the seminar was inaugurated by Quran Sunnath Society president Salim Haji, Col Viswanatha Panicker, father of Kargil martyr Vikram and Kausu, mother of Chandran who was killed in Marad.
