The incidents of violence and protests have been continuing in Kerala since January 2 after the communist government sneaked two of its women activists inside the Sabarimala temple. While the communist government has been accused of using police atrocities against devotees and using excesses, now reports have emerged that CPIM and DYFI activists had vandalised a mosque in Perambra, Kozhikode and tried to blame it on the Sangh Parivar.
As per reports, activists and members of the Democratic Youth Federation of India, which is the student wing of the CPIM, and the ruling CPIM goons vandalised and pelted stones at a mosque in Perambra. While initially the act was blamed on the Sangh Parivar and Hindu activists, after police investigations it has come to light that CPIM and DYFI activists were behind it.
News portal MyNation has accessed the police FIR which names the local CPIM branch secretary and 20 other persons who belong to the DYFI and CPIM. A case had been registered against them under section 153 for promoting enmity between two groups and attempting to cause riots.
