Vidhyabharati School at Thalassery (Kerala) ransacked by CPI(M) criminals

Vidhyabharati01.jpgOn January 27th 2008, a group of CPI[M] criminals attacked the Vidyabharathi school in Thalassery, Kannur Dist. Kerala.  The school, Adiyodi Vakeel Smaraka Tagore Vidyapeetam [CBSE syllabus] is run by a charitable trust functioning in the name of Swargeeya Gopalan Adiyodi Vakeel former pranth sangachalak of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. Gopalan Adiyodi Vakeel was a Gandhian and forerunner of many nationalistic movements in and around Thalassery.

Kannur district is the sowing field of CPI [Marxist] in Kerala and many of its leaders hail from here. They exploit the unemployment, poverty and the generally straightforward nature of the youth of north Malabar and transform them into a herd of frustrated, immoral vandals who are at their command. Added to this, there is increased jihadi anti-national, terrorist activity widespread in the district.  

Vidhyabharati02.jpgThe children of our school are moulded in such a way that they have exemplary character and ardent nationalism and thus we create good citizens of tomorrow who take pride in our Hindutva heritage. The aim to develop a core of young nationalist group was being realized slowly.

On January 27th 2008, an armed mob of about 500 CPI [M] cadres assembled in the courtyard by about 6 p.m. and ransacked our recently constructed school building. They broke the doors of principal’s room, office room, lab, classrooms etc. and destroyed everything in sight. Glass panels and aluminium windows were smashed. Computer lab with about 20 computers and accessories was destroyed totally.  Vidhyabharati09.jpgPhysics, Chemistry and Biology labs were totally devastated.  The library rooms were ransacked and thousands of library books are missing, mutilated and torn to pieces.  Drinking water lines and drainage pipes were also destroyed. Water coolers were damaged. Classrooms were broken open andVidhyabharati03.jpg student’s furniture destroyed beyond repair. The vandals shattered the photos of Saraswathidevi, Bharathmatha, Parampoojaniya Dr. Hedgewar and Parampoojaniya Guruji without disgrace. In all, the damage amounted to about Rs. 20 lakhs.

All these were done in pretext of angry reaction to the death of a CPI [M] cadre. This is a blatant example of state-sponsored vandalism and a police party was a witness to the act. The school complex is situated very near to the residence of local CPI [M] MLA and Home minister of Kerala, Sri. Kodiyeri Balakrishnan.

Vidhyabharati04.jpgWe have taken special care to remove all visible signs of arson lest it may shock and frighten the tender intellect of our students. We have also decided to build a protection wall around our complex that may cost about Rs. 15 lakhs. The photos and video clippings have appeared in both print and visual media and this has generated a feeling of apathy and anger towards the CPI [M].

Vidhyabharati05.jpgThis Vidyabharathi school complex is recently constructed and work is still in progress with the help from society. Currently, we have to repay loans from banks and financial institutions to the tune of Rs. 75 lakhs, monthly repayment being Rs. 1.5 lakhs. But years of selfless effort by a group of Vidyabharathi workers has been brought to zero now. Infuriated by our influence and support from the common man, our opponents make use of any opportunity to tarnish and annihilate us.
