As reported, activists of SFI and the Campus Front started the “routine practice” of writing on campus walls with the commencement of the new academic year. The issue began when the groups started overwriting on the graffiti made The report claimed that a “communal writing” was etched over the Campus Front’s graffiti which contributed to the dispute.

Following the murder, the SFI has called a statewide bandh on Monday, with the CPM doing the same in the slain SFI activists’ hometown.

The radical Islamist organisation PFI, which now seems to have started targeting CPM’s associates, has recorded a long and bloody history in the state of Kerala.

This includes chopping off hands of a Kerala Professor for allegedly insulting Islamic Prophet Mohammed. Besides this, it has been accused by the National Investigative Agency (NIA) of being involved in the controversial ‘love jihad’ cases in Kerala. Recently, activists of its political arm SDPI were arrested in connection with an ABVP worker’s brutal murder in Kerala’s Kannur.
