Home News Reports Communist leader Thomas Isaac terms protesting Hindus at Sabarimala as terrorists

Communist leader Thomas Isaac terms protesting Hindus at Sabarimala as terrorists

Yesterday, Sabarimala turned into a war zone as the communist government lathicharged and pelted stones at the protesting devotees. It was owing to the gates of the temple being opened to allow women of all age group to enter the temple, following a Supreme Court verdict.

Kerala CM had vowed to implement the SC order to the letter and had also decided to not file a review petition despite the widespread sentiment among Hindus. Many had asserted that the Communist government of Kerala was perhaps more than happy to allow Hindu religious sentiments to be hurt. Adding insult to injury, yesterday, Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan had made a controversial statement that certain customs are meant to be violated, hinting at the beliefs of the devotees of Lord Ayyappa.

The insults heaped upon Hindus by the Communist government didn’t stop there. Now, Kerala’s Finance Minister and member of Communist Party of India (Marxist) Thomas Isaac has taken to Twitter to call all protesting devotees of Lord Ayyappa as terrorists.

This comment came after Republic TV’s coverage of the Sabarimala protests which was skewed heavily against the devotees. In his tweet, Isaac is amused that Arnab Goswami is angry for the right reason “which is a rarity”.

Thomas Isaac then proceeded to draw a ludicrous comparison. He asserted that none of Republic TV’s journalists were attacked when Arnab Goswami called the state a “Terrorist/IS hub“. “But now that you happen to be on the opposite side of real terrorists, you got it”, he added referring to the protesting devotees as terrorists.

Last year in August, the Communists in Kerala, in a targeted cyber attack, had tried to downvote Republic TV on Facebook because Republic TV had perhaps reported something which had offended the Leftists in Kerala.

Earlier, the Kerala CM had made another controversial statement, saying “if faith is above Constitution and law, why not have a temple in Ayodhya”. He has also accused that the attacks on journalists by protesters are RSS agenda.

However, it is unclear why the communist leader, who’s also state minister, termed protestor as terrorists. There have been reports of violence, but even the state police have been accused of resorting to violence. Fortunately, there has been no loss of life, except reported suicide by Pandallur Ramakrishnan, Guruswamy from Koyilandy who committed suicide seeing the attacks on Sabarimala temple. The Ministry of Home Affairs has taken cognisance of the incidents of violence in Kerala. The state administration on Wednesday imposed section 144 of CrPC which prohibits assembly of more than four people in an area.
