Swargeeya Jayakrishnan Master Lives in the Hearts of Thousands He Left Behind

By HK published on December 1, 2017

On 1st December 1999 at around 10.35am, the class teacher of Mokeri East U.P. School in Koothuparambu near Panur in Kannur district and vice- president of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha Kerala State K.T. Jayakrishnan was conducting class for his 6th standard students. Suddenly, his bodyguard (provided by the state government to protect his life due to threats from communist criminals) disappeared and seven CPM activists entered the class room, shouted slogans and warned the students not to move, blocked the class room’s entrance, took sword-sticks and razors in their hands, came near Jayakrishnan Master and stabbed him several times. Jayakrishnan Master fell on the floor, but the heartless communist criminals did not stop and continued to stab him. After more than 48 ante-mortem injuries all over the body, Jayakrishnan Master breathed his last within five minutes.

After confirming his death, a CPM man wrote a warning to the witnesses –  children and other teachers – on the blackboard that if anyone gave evidence to the police or the court, they would be killed. They left the place in procession, walking along the public road brandishing the blood-stained weapons as if they were celebrating a victory. The most horrible murder was committed in front of students less than 11 years old. The young children were shocked as their most respected class teacher was brutally murdered in front of them. The incident created psychological problems for many children who had to undergo counseling.

Yes, this is exactly what happened in broad daylight in a school classroom seven years ago on 1st December 1999. The CPM once again proved they are professionals in murdering any person at any time at any place.

The only sin committed by the Jayakrishnan Master was that he believed in an ideology (Hindutva) which the CPM could not tolerate.

It was in 1996 that BJP’s Kannur district secretary Panniyan Chandran was killed by CPM criminals in front of his wife. BJP suffered a major setback after the murder of Panniyan Chandran. But Jayakrishnan Master undertook the responsibility and lead the organization with the support of another 14 full-time committed party activists in Kannur. The tireless and committed work of Jayakrishnan Master boosted party activities in Kannur. He conducted a series of public meetings which attracted massive crowds. He informed the public about the criminalization of CPM in Kannur district. The increasing public support and the dedicated work of Jayakrishnan Master worried the CPM’s district leaders which led them to plan to ‘liquidate’ him. On various occasions the CPM’s local leaders warned openly that “we will get our next target very soon”.

K.T Jayakrishnan Master was a most respected person among the local people. He was a very soft spoken person loved by all. There were massive crowds to listen his speeches anywhere in Kerala, specially in Kannur district. He was not in the habit of insulting or ridiculing his political opponents. The CPM murdered Jayakrishnan Master only because of the growing popularity of the deceased and the fact that he was propagating an ideology (Hindutva) which they could not tolerate.

The CPM goons did not even considered the mental trauma that the children would have to suffer on seeing such a terrible murder in front of their eyes. The brutal murder left an indelible scar on the minds of the students who witnessed it and this could affect their personality development. Many have joined other schools. Most of the students had to undergo counseling.

The manner in which the crime was committed by CPM shocked not only Jayakrishnan Master’s relatives but also the entire community. He was mercilessly butchered when he was unarmed and engaged in the noble act of imparting knowledge to his beloved students. The time and venue of the crime had been calculatedly chosen by the blood-thirsty assailants. They knew they could not kill him at his house or on his way to school. So the CPM selected the temple of learning as the place to execute the murder.

After five years of investigations, the additional District Sessions Court and later Kerala High Court served death sentences on five of the seven accused after convicting them under Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code. Out of seven accused, the sixth accused had been acquitted by the Sessions Judge. The seventh accused died after being hit by a train.

The court confirmed the sentences and observed that the murder was committed inside a classroom in front of the students. The accused had not made any attempt to conceal their identities. The Kerala High Court judge said ‘the accused trespassed into the classroom and translated their evil design into action by committing the murder of K.T. Jayakrishnan in an extremely brutal, grotesque, diabolical, revolting and dastardly manner’.

CPM activists demonstrated in front of the Sessions Court and High Court after the verdict. They shouted slogans against the judges and even threatened to kill them. A whopping sum of more than twenty million rupees was mobilized in no time by the CPM to fight the legal battle. As advised by the CPM state secretariat, all the five convicts have submitted their appeal to the Supreme Court against the death penalty.

But, in a sudden development, then CPM-led Kerala government replaced the public prosecutor with a weak person while arranging top criminal lawyers of the country headed by Ram Jethmalani for the murder convicts.

As expected in one of it’s black day in the history of Indian Judiciary, the supreme court  aquitted the daylight murderers of Jayakrishnan master inspite of so many witnesses!


Jayakrishan Master left this world 18 years ago but he is still alive in the hearts of thousands. His sudden death was a setback for the Hindutva movement in Kerala, particularly in Kannur district but the message spread by this great man is still boosting the morale of thousands of activists in Kannur and other part of the state to strive to achieve the goal for which Jayakrishan Master gave up his life.

We salute his soul and pray that thousands of Jayakrishan Masters be born in Kerala and Bharat to protect our nation, Sanatana Dharma and to defeat the evil forces engaged in destroying our Hindu nation
