Congress snaps ties with Islamist outfits in Kerala after party worker is allegedly killed by leader of the same outfits

While PFI an SDPI have had a long history of communalism and political murders, Congress continued to remain an ally till one of their own party workers was allegedly killed by one of the leaders of the outfits.

The Congress party has decided to snap ties with their ideological allies in Kerala – Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) and its sister organisation PFI, after one of the members of the Islamist organisation PFI was arrested in connection with the murder of Congress worker in Kerala’s Thrissur district, reports Times Now.

According to the reports, the Kerala police have arrested a leader of Popular Front of India (PFI) which is an ally of Congress in the state for the brutal murder of Congress worker P Naushad. In the wake of the arrest, the Congress has announced that it will cut ties with both Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) and its sister organisation PFI.

Reportedly, Kerala Congress has come heavily down on the notorious Islamist organisation PFI for its involvement in the murder of 40-year-old Congress worker Naushad. Speaking to media, one of the Congress workers said that the Congress party has never believed in communal politics and it has nothing to do with the PFI or SDPI anymore because they are communal organisations.

“We have always been against the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the Communist Party of India (CPI). We believe that they are two sides of the same coin. We don’t believe in communal politics and don’t want any such parties in the alliance,” said the Congress worker.

Earlier on July 31 this year, 40-year-old Noushad was brutally murdered by stabbing him by bike-borne assailants in Chavakkad in Thrissur district. The Kerala Police then nabbed five other accused in the case.

The prime accused Arakkal Jamaludheen had run away after the incident. However, Jamaludheen, who is the Chavakkad area president of the PFI, was arrested from Tamil Nadu by the investigation officials.

Jamaludheen has been charged under sections 302 (Punishment for murder), 143 (Unlawful assembly), 147 (rioting), 148 (Rioting, armed with deadly weapon), 323 (Punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 324 (Voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means), 120B (criminal conspiracy), 153 (Wantonly giving provocation with intent to cause riot) of the Indian Penal Code and section 27 (Punishment for possessing arms) of the Arms Act.

The Islamist outfit PFI was launched in Kerala in 2006 after merging three fringe Muslim outfits – the National Development Front of Kerala, Karnataka Forum for Dignity and Manitha Neethi Pasari of the Tamil Nadu – to protect “interest of the backward and oppressed people.”

In Kerala, most of its leaders were members of the banned Student Islamic Movement of India. Reportedly, the PFI was allegedly involved in at least 24 political murders in Kerala.

The Islamist outfits Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) and its sister organisation PFI Popular Front of India have been accused of extreme communalism and has a long history of resorting to violence against their political opponents. The PFI is also accused by the National Investigation Agency for being involved in love-jihad cases in Kerala. Recently, the SDPI members were also arrested in connection with the brutal murder of ABVP worker in Kannur.

Recently, PFI members were accused of killing 42-year-old activist Ramalingam. The activist was brutally murdered for opposing religious conversion. The accused PFI members have been preaching conversion to Islam.

In December, two people, former members of the extremist Islamist organisation, Popular Front of India (PFI) had joined the IS. The police said that K Sajjad and Anwar Poothappara had links with the radical Islamic outfit in the past.

While PFI an SDPI have had a long history of communalism and political murders, Congress continued to remain an ally till one of their own party workers was allegedly killed by one of the leaders of the outfits.
