Left and their maternal love!

A soft word … a small sentence

… feebly uttered or merely murmured

… if not direct … if not strident … atleast whispered

… if not from the depth of your hearts, atleast served from the lips

… or atleast from behind the canopy blinds of huts, from behind closed doors

… or from the tatty shades of the book shelf,

… or from the attics of vintage houses …

With fond hope and eager ears, I turned to all these places for a whimper, a whisper… I am still waiting, aching for a sound-byte, a soft word, from here or there or from anywhere, for sixty days now!


The eyes dilated, tired from scanning newspapers, poring through reports, ardently watching television news, skimming through Social Media … scouring for at least that one newsbyte … that Maoist China is wrong … that China’s armed incursion in Doklam would threaten India and Bhutan, that is what I hoped the Indian communists would say, mumble or whisper, moved by a whiff of conscience or courage!

But alas! All my hopes are quashed!

What happened in 1962 is repeating now!

When socialist Nehru opened his heart to ‘Hindi-Chīnī Bhāī Bhāī’, communist China launched a stealthy strike, an invasion across the Himalayas. The then communists in India went into denial asking “How can socialist China invade a non-aligned country like India?” They then went on to defend China vehemently while blaming the ‘hyperbole’ of Indian Defense minister, Krishna Menon for the war with China!

Although half a century has passed but their way of thinking has not changed. In spite of worldwide reverses, the infatuation of the communists with China has not ended.

Just read the lament of the editorial of CPM’s mouth piece “People’s Democracy” over Doklam:

Doklam belongs to Bhutan. Let Bhutan resolve the problem by itself. We need not interfere in that issue. And the root cause of the problem is not Doklam but Modi Sarkar…

China is infuriated because of the increased proximity between Modi and America, and because of the importance to Tibetan Buddhist Guru Dalai Lama given by India” so goes the editorial.

What a dubious and callous analysis!

These red brothers and combatants, who perennially hit the roads with their hartals, bandhs, lockouts and strikes with their protest rallies, who claim to stand by the exploited poorer and down-trodden sections of the people, are now asking India not to stand by the side of Bhutan, a tiny hilly country that is being bullied by an elephantine expansionist China, and advise India not to stand against Chinese forces!

The Indian Communists give us this free advice: “If any objection is at all required, that has to come from Bhutan; and the mighty Chinese empire can talk to small weak Bhutan and will get this resolved…

History is witness and the whole world knows, what Tibet got by holding talks with China.

The communists say, let Bhutan resolve Bhutan’s issue! They have audacity to give us free advice, but do not even whimper against China, let alone trying to persuade China to establish cordial relations with Bhutan. These same communists never ask China why it meddles in India Pak issues, instead of letting us resolve them mutually.

Never, not a finger against their ‘motherland’ – China!

They will not dare to even suggest to China to allow Tibet to resolve its internal issues, and not to interfere with Tibet. Instead, dancing to the chinese tunes, they proclaim that ‘Chinese invasion of Tibet is to liberate Tibetans from feudal landlords”! What is the difference between the Chinese invasion of Tibet and America that waged a war against merciless Gaddafi under the pretense of liberating Libya, who killed Saddam Hussein under the pretense of an alleged threat from WMDs?

Tomorrow our communists may defend the Chinese invasion of Bhutan in the name of ‘liberating’ the Bhutanese from monarchy, thus conniving with the devious chinese plan to grind communism into the innocent lives of the simple Bhutanese.

Tomorrow, if China declares that Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim are to be conquered as part of their ostentatious expansionist plan, our communists might even support China, saying that any chinese expansion into India is only to liberate these states from imperialist India!

All this they have done and will do in future, only to please China – their ‘motherland’ !

Clandestine role of Communists in 1962 War with China:

During the 1962 war, the undivided CPI party leaders were imprisoned by the government of the day because they supported the enemy country – China. Among these leaders was Kerala’s Leftist leader V.S. Achuthanandan. Once in prison, he realized his mistakes and tried to correct. He directed his cadres to support the soldiers of India in order to change the perception that they were Chinese agents!

While in jail, with the help of his fellow-inmates, he conducted blood donation camps to help the injured Indian soldiers and also offered money for war expenditure, by consuming only one meal a day and then selling the remaining food for money, and contributing that money to the soldier’s welfare fund. However, the hardcore Communists did not oblige and vehemently opposed his proposal. The opposition was so emphatic that they came to physical blows with each other!

The war with China ended. Communists were released. What happened next? A complaint was lodged against V.S.Achuthanandan in the party forum questioning his commitment to the party. The Communists concluded that instead of helping China, V.S.Achuthanandan tried to help the Indian government, and that this amounted to a criminal offense! Doubting his commitment towards communism, he was reprimanded for not kow-towing to the party line and was even demoted in the Communist party!

So much for communists’ allegiance and loyalty to China – their ‘motherland’ !!

Well, we are all ordinary people. We believe that having been born on this land, raised in this land, being fed from this very soil, interlaced into the life of this nation, our loyalty is to this land.

But our Leftists claim to be intellectuals, you see! Therefore, geographical boundaries do not apply to them! Gratitude to the soil and people that have fed them, do not apply to them! Nations do not apply to them! For them, international commitment is more important than national interests, and devotion to the motherland, the land that nursed them is only a bourgeois illusion… That is why they cannot oppose China, not even in their dreams. Just mutter a word against Islamism and the Indian communists will all rise in righteous rage claiming to defend the Indian nation and ‘secularism’!

But when Muslim women in China’s Xinjiang province were forbidden to don the burkha and full veil, when muslim men were ordered to discard the full beard, when religious names were forbidden to muslim children, when fifteen of such onerous sanctions were slapped on Chinese muslims, the communists of India cowered in abject silence. After all, all these sanctions were imposed by their beloved ‘socialist motherland’!

None of the communist fellow-travelers, not even a single member of the “Award Wapsi gang” who threatened to leave India because Indian people voted against their preference, who returned national awards because somewhere there was an attack on some writer, has announced any similar move in protest against China’s aggression on Bhutan. They do not care for Indian interests and worries, they do not mind Chinese incursion in Doklam.

Fearing that communist betrayal of national interests may lead to an existential crisis, the RSS is being prevented from entering Kerala! They are killed if they enter Kerala.

On one hand, the Communists support the separatist movement in Kashmir, accusing the Indian government of suppressing dissent. On the other hand they hail the Chinese government for suppressing the dissent of “Uyghur” Muslims, claiming that China is only “protecting the state”. Clearly, the Communists have different yardsticks of integrity for India and their ‘motherland’ China!

Making tall claims about Doklam being part of their territory, China claims mendaciously that Bhutan accepts its stand. But the very next day Bhutan condemns and rejects all these claims as false and vilifying. Yet, the Communists of India vouch for Chinese version only! Because, for them, Leftism is more important than Realism and People’s Liberation Army (PLA China) is dearer to them than the interests of Indian people!

There is just an iota of Communism left in China, but still the loyalty towards China has not yet died in the hearts of these Indian communists.

China has territorial and coastal disputes with about 22 countries. Just like “British East India Company” which came in the name of the business, then invaded the countries and expanded the British empire, China today gives high interest loans in return for land pledged by indebted countries, then after invading their geographies, it plans to expand its empire beyond its boundaries.

But hush! We are not supposed to speak about all this! China is fire! It is ‘motherland’!

Hush! Hush! We are wrong… we are absolutely wrong!

Just like a person who chooses a path of devotion only to get a good wife for himself, just like political parties who proclaim principles only to get seats and power, Oh…Communists … say this time, atleast mutter or whisper that China is wrong.

Or if not for your own sake, say for the sake of the country, and say it strongly this time – that China is wrong!

Eagerly awaiting your response… please…

Post-script: The Maoists, who pledged their own lives and struggled with hunger and thirst in the woods and forests for the lives of poor and downtrodden, are much better than these pseudo-Communists haunting the corridors of power! The Indian Maoists in their 9th Congress convention, have resolved that Maoist China has become a regional expansionist force and have condemned the attitude of China.

COMMUNISTS AND ‘AZAADI’

  • By Dr.Rahul Shastri

Whether it was E.M.S Namboodiripad or Harkishen Singh Surjeet then or Sitaram Yechury now, it comes as no surprise to listen to Communists praising Pakistan or China.

sita-ram-yechuri

During 1962 India-China war, EMS said, “…the Chinese had entered territory that they thought was theirs and hence there was no question of aggression. At the same time, the Indians were defending territory that they considered theirs and so they were not committing aggression either…” .

In  1998, the general secretary of CPI(M), Harkishen Singh Surjeet reiterated the position of  E.M.S on the issues of border conflicts. Now, Sitaram Yechury, General Secretary of Communist Party of India (Marxist) says, what is wrong in saying ‘Pakistan Zindabad’.

There is a confluence of Hate Hinduism brigade today. Some openly talk of breaking India, and their right to do so is defended by others on grounds of “freedom of expression (FOE)”. Make no mistake, this is only a ‘good cop, bad cop’ routine. The agenda that unites them is Hate Hinduism. Communists supply the ideological and moral leadership, the media and westernised intelligentsia multiply the firepower, and the Congressis and others provide cannon fodder.

What is happening today is not idle chatter. It resonates with the tragic history of India. An aspect of its history that is deliberately hidden by communist historians, who control the history writing – How the communists have helped to break India.

What the communists did to break India and create Pakistan should never be forgotten. Those who forget history run the risk of it being repeated – the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce. Here are the documented details of communist love for Pakistan which led them to break India:

PAKISTAN DEMAND MADE MUSLIM LEAGUE ANTI IMPERIALIST !

The demand for Pakistan had only to be raised for the communists to declare that Muslim League had become anti-imperialist and was no longer communal. Further that Jinnah was comparable to Gandhiji. Unbelievable? Read for yourself what Sri PC Joshi wrote in those days:

We were the first to see and admit a change in its character when the League accepted complete independence as its aim and began to rally the Muslim masses behind its banner. We held a series of discussions within our party and came to the conclusion in 1941-1942 that it had become an anti-imperialist organization expressing the freedom urge of the Muslim people that its demand for Pakistan was a demand for self determination…“

A belief continues to be held that League is a communal organization and that Mr. Jinnah is Pro-British.  But what is the reality? Mr. Jinnah is to the freedom loving League masses what Gandhiji is to the Congress masses. They regard the League as their patriotic organization as we regard the Congress.”[1]

COMMUNIST’S IDEOLOGICAL SUPPORT TO “MUSLIM LEAGUE” & ‘PAKISTAN’

Sri Hamdani, a Pakistani lawyer, presumably a leftist, writes the “CPI was the only organized secular party which supported the demand for Pakistan, and gave it an ideological justification on the basis of the principle of the right of self-determination to sub-national groups.” [2]

What was this justification?

The communist justification was “…The Muslim masses feared that they would be oppressed and exploited by Hindu India. … To refuse this demand [for Pakistan] meant to sanction national inequality and oppression.[2]

Oppression! Exploitation! In their name, destroy the country!
Does anyone find echoes of ‘ham kya mange azadi’ here?

The CPI declared approval of the AIML’s political aspirations… They also questioned the right of Congress to speak for the whole of India.[2]. Sajjad Zaheer, a noted Communist leader and intellectual, later the Secretary General of the Communist Party of Pakistan in 1948, supported the demand for Pakistan. The Party itself supported the demand for Muslim separatists “to the point of secession of the Muslim nationalities...” [4]

COMMUNIST CADRE & ORGANISATION FOR PAKISTAN & MUSLIM LEAGUE

The problem with Pakistan demand was that Muslim League was not a mass organisation, since aristocrats and vested interests had important positions in it. The communists decided to change things at the ground level, by building the Muslim League wherever needed.

On Sajjad Zaheer’s suggestion, the Party decided to encourage its ranks to join the AIML with the intention of turning the AIML into a mass organisation.” [2]. The Communist Party not only supported the Muslim League, but also gave its own people like Sajjad Zaheer, Abdullah Malik and Daniyal Latifi to the League.” [3]. “… a number of well-known Communists like Daniyal Latifi and progressives like Mian Iftikharuddin resigned from the Communist Party and the INC to join the AIML.[2]

Daniyal Latifi was a well-known Indian communist who gave up his lucrative practice at Lahore to join the Communist Party as a fulltime worker. He later joined the Punjab AIML and became its active member.[2]

He was “trained in law by Jinnah himself, authored the Punjab Muslim League’s manifesto for the 1945-1946 elections, … the League’s entire election campaign in the 1945-1946 elections was stage managed in Punjab by the Communist Party of India….[3]

Mian Iftikharuddin was the president of the Punjab Provincial INC Committee, but was a very close sympathiser of the Communist Party. He was also a member of the Punjab Assembly from 1937 to 1947. He joined the AIML only in the last months of 1945. [2]. The Party also issued instructions to the district workers to cooperate with the AIML and enroll new members for the AIML organisations.[2]

COMMUNIST PROPAGANDA AND CERTIFICATES FOR ‘MUSLIM LEAGUE’:

The “AIML welcomed the Communist decision, as the popular base of the Communist Party could now be utilised by it to rally support for itself.” [2]. The communists set to work, issuing certificates: “After joining the AIML, the Communists tried to refurbish the AIMLs image as a progressive and forward looking organisation[3]

The biggest advantage was that with Communist certificates, Pakistan supporters were able to escape the charge of communalism and acquire a ‘freedom fighter’ halo. As Hamdani says: “the Communist Party of India that most secular and non-communal institution … wholeheartedly supported the Muslim League and the Pakistan Movement during the 1940s… They would not have done so if they had thought the League was operating on a narrow communal agenda.[3] 

Does anybody find echoes in what is happening with the Kashmiri separatists today?

PAKISTAN DEMAND REVOLUTIONARY, AKANDA BHARAT SEPARATIST!

Communist perversion reached its logical limit when they characterised Pakistan demand as nationalist and anti imperialist, while Akhanda Bharat slogan was called separatist!

Partition 1

While supporting the Pakistan demand in official documents, Sri Adhikari writes “We saw in the growth of the Muslim League not the growth of communalism but the rise of anti-imperialist consciousness among the Muslim masses…”.

On the other hand the same document refers to the supporters of Akhada Bharata as “… Hindu minded communal reactionary who under the garb of Akhanda Bharat …” “….slogan of “Akhand Hindustan” leads in fact not to unity but to disunity and disruption.” [4]

In this way was the banner of Pakistan unfurled by the communists in India. They attacked, delegitimised, and isolated the nationalists of India and helped to break India.

WHAT WAS THE RESULT OF COMMUNIST ACTIONS?

According to Ram Manohar Lohia the Communist support to the partition demand “acted like an incubator,[6] meaning that the seeds of Pakistan were nursed to ripeness in Communism. Those who tend to dismiss nationalist concerns at what is happening today as ‘alarmist’ would do well to study how Pakistani muslims today assess the contribution of communists in those days.

1. “Muslim League itself in the mid-1940 s benefited from communist work among the peasantry and strengthened its own secular appeal among a large section of the Muslim masses.” [5]

2. “By equating a religious community with a nationality, the Communists helped aiding the communal ambitions of the vested interests among the Muslims even further, giving respectability to these elements and, in the process, drove a wedge in the unity of the national forces.[2]

3. “the Communists were willing to be taken for a ride by the AIML leadership, and this probably the Leaguers enjoyed immensely.” [3]

THE WAGES OF SIN WERE PAID IN BLOOD

When the communists led by Sajjad Zaheer went to Pakistan to collect their wages of sin, they met with bitter disappointment.

Even earlier, communists and their supporters were denied tickets and formal positions in the party by the Muslim League, and the League manipulated things to its own advantage [pp 570-1, 6].

After the formation of Pakistan, the “state started to use Islam as a political weapon to counteract various democratic forces. Islamic doctrine was employed in the media to persuade people against the anti-religious (meaning anti-Islam) … communists. Public gatherings by communists were occasionally attacked and disrupted by mobs claiming Islamic tendencies or love for Pakistan.” [6]. “Public Safety Acts and other draconian measures from the colonial period were reinvigorated and used to arrest and harass party workers and sympathetic trade unionists. Important members of the Communist Party of Pakistan’s central committee were periodically jailed and communist publications were routinely banned or confiscated. Even literary journals linked to the Progressive Writers Association, Sawera, Adab e Latif or Nuqush, were constantly asked to stop publication for disseminating anti-state literature.” [6]

Soon there was a crackdown and incarceration of the “…members of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Pakistan, Sajjad Zaheer and Mohammad Ata. The poet and progressive intellectual, Faiz Ahmed Faiz (Faiz was never a card-carrying member of the Communist Party) was also accused of being a co-conspirator and was jailed along with the others. … Zaheer spent the next several years in jail and soon after his release in 1955 he went back to India.” [6]

…“there were widespread arrests and blanket clampdown on communist party activities. The entire process crippled the movement and demoralized cadres.” [6]

Many were tortured, and Hassan Nasser of Hyderabad, was tortured to death. Communist organisations like the “Kisan Committee, Sind Hari Committee, Democratic Women’s Association, Peace Committee, Democratic Student Federation,and other groups … were very soon contained through severe persecution and state violence.” [6]

The wages of sin were paid in blood by the Pakistanis. 

The same has happened to communists in Iran, East Pakistan, and all other Islamic states. When will they understand that no amount of idealism can justify long lasting lunacy and betrayal of nationalism?

Why this lunacy? Most communists are not born idiots. One can only infer that they are blinded by hate. Hatred for Hinduism. Hatred is destructive. Love for the motherland should supplant hatred in the human soul. That alone is the way forward.

Vande Mataram!
