Not just Tiananmenn Square: There are torture rooms in colleges in Communist ruled Kerala

It’s June 4, the anniversary of the 1989 massacre at Tiananmenn Square in Beijing. Some say that lakhs had gathered to protest the Communist regime. How many were killed? How many were wounded? The Chinese state says 200 were killed. Others say as many as 10,000 were killed. What are the real numbers? Only China knows.

Instead, this is what the Communist government of China has to say to the world.

The really scary part is that it doesn’t even matter whether the actual number of dead was closer to 200 or to 10,000. Over the last century, Communism has killed 1000 lakh people across the globe. So, whether 200 or 10,000, the Tiananmenn Square incident is a just a drop in the grim bucket of Communism.

What we should really be worrying about is not Tiananmenn Square, but the fact that the same deadly ideology is still around us. We’ve now brought them down from three states (Kerala, Bengal and Tripura) to just one. That is good news, but cold comfort considering that Communists still control multiple levers of power within the media and intelligentsia, which often gets to set the narrative. How safe are we while the Communists still get to set the narrative? And, they still have Kerala! Over three crore Indians live there.

The victims at Tiananmenn Square became famous. But as I mentioned, they are just a drop in the Communist bucket. We should worry about the victims who are forgotten.

Did you know about this? Let me quote from the article.

Colleges in Kerala have turned into places of torture, according to a report by former Kerala High Court Justice (retd) P.K. Shamsuddin that has been submitted to the state governor and the Chief Minister’s Office. The report reveals that several colleges and universities have “torture rooms” for students who do not fall in line with the directives of student political parties or unions, in particular the Students’ Federation of India (SFI), student wing of ruling Communist Party of India (Marxist).”

So why won’t the college teachers intervene when this horror takes place? Again, I quote:

Even amongst the teachers, there are many who support the Left-wing parties, and when a case of torture is reported, they do not take action against it.”

This is from a report by retired Justice P K Shamsuddin, formerly of the Kerala High Court. The report was submitted to the Governor and the Chief Minister’s Office. The Commission was set up after an SFI member was stabbed in the chest because he had a disagreement with his fellow comrades.

Our kids are literally getting stabbed in the chest, being thrown into dungeons and torture rooms by Communism. The same deadly ideology that set tanks upon students at Tiananmenn Square.

Did you know about this? In an age when the smartphone and social media picks up every act of fashionable “dissent” by any student anywhere, the report of the Shamsuddin Commission came and went. No cable news coverage, no newspaper headlines, no dizzying social media storm, no inspiring poems, no murals or graffiti. Just an inconvenient truth, which slipped by without mention.

There are two kinds of dissent that students can choose in this country. There’s the fashionable version. That’s the one where you need five meters of bandage to cover up a single scratch on the head. The one where you have back to back media interviews scheduled for the next one month and an admission to a social “science” course arranged for you at a prestigious foreign university.

And then there’s the other, unfashionable, forgotten one. It happens in torture rooms in colleges in Communist ruled Kerala. If those walls had eyes, the Communists would surely have gouged them out.

And, thousands of kilometers away from the torture rooms of Kerala, we have the cozy living rooms of Delhi. Here the Communists rule as well, certifying who gets to be a ‘free speech hero.’ This testimony records how Sitaram Yechury came to JNU at the time, carrying a Chinese propaganda film that denounced the protesting students as CIA operatives.

This is not a one off event. In fact, the CPI(M) officially supported the massacre.

Perhaps you think this was so long ago that it is not relevant today. In that case, let me remind you that Kerala’s Communist Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan praised North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un at a party meeting in Jan 2018. That is just two years ago.

Indeed. In between spotting India’s next big protest talent and denouncing Modi sarkar as fascist, the Communists always have time to pay tribute to their supreme leader : Kim Jong Un.

The ones who cheered the tanks at Tiananmenn Square are in charge of deciding youth icons for India today. Let that sink in.

No wonder that their heroes and ‘sheroes’ turn out to be supporters of Yakub Memon and Afzal Guru.

As a nation, we need to open our eyes and understand what a real hero is. And who the real victims are. You see that man in the famous photo facing off against a line of armored tanks? That man is a real hero. The forgotten students in the torture rooms of Communist ruled Kerala are the real victims.

In the media glare, we have forgotten both the real heroes and the real victims. Therein lies the pity.

  1. I read this and I don’t know how I am feeling…….maybe a sense of despair for my country. It’s being eaten away from the inside. And from the outside. We need to be strong for the times to come.


  2. What good has ever come from communism? On the other hand, communism is responsible for killing of millions of people and piling misery upon hundreds of million people. Don’t be fooled by the glitzy skyscrapers and bullet trains in places like Shanghai and Beijing. Some cities in China have been developed mainly to showcase it to the rest of the world. Chinese citizens from other parts of China, particularly from rural China need a permit to migrate to such cities. A vast number of people in China live in fear of terror being unleashed by the CCP if they fall in the wrong books of the CCP overlords. Many people have simply disappeared for raising small voice of dissent. Given a choice of freedom from CCP many chinese citizens would gladly embrace it. However, its impossible as china is a police state with 24/7 surveillance of its population by the state machinery and the local CCP party members. The population is under the jackboots of the CCP. Now the CCP wants to bring the population of Hong Kong under their jackboots and suppress the freedom enjoyed by ending the one nation two systems commitments given by them.

    In India wherever the communists have formed a government of their own, they have indulged in the same behaviour like the CCP of China. The communists in India have destroyed the industrial base in WB and have prevented industrialisation of Kerala. They have made these states poor and stuffed the administrative machinery of the state with their hand picked party cadres whose only job is to collect hafta for the party from poor. This is well known to all and well documented. They auction small posts in government departments by nominating the highest bidder to the post who will in turn perpetuate corruption as he / she has to recover the bribe paid to get the post. They have impoverished the population of the state and have destroyed institutions and institutionalised corruption. Yet the MSM does not cover such crimes in its prime time because again most MSM types are byproducts of very same commie-left schools.

  3. Indian communists are worse than Soviet or Chinese ones. Atleast the ones in Russia and to a lesser extent China produce world class math, science and technology. Our communists produce garbage – in the form of useless theses, news articles or other media. They are basically a tax on the productive population of the country which supports them and in turn gets violence.

    It is a wonder how in a land of Hindus like India, communism even took roots. Hinduism is the most liberal of religions with ideas that are the anti-thesis of communism. Maybe it was poverty or maybe something else. But Hindus in Kerala go to temples and yet vote for this ghastly cult of Communism.

    The silver lining is that most of India has figured out that the Commies need to be kicked out and has given them declining vote shares in elections. From 5% in 2004 to 3% in 2014 to 1% in 2019, the Communist electoral fortunes are in a terminal dive. But these folks will try to incite US kind of violence, Amit Shah needs to be prepared this time and not caught napping like in the Delhi riots


    1. Not all the scientists in Russia and China are apparatchiks of the party. They are just like scientists anywhere else in the world. Only difference is, the stakes are very high for them. If they fail to deliver the targets set by the communists, they along with their families pay a heavy price. Apparatchiks do not do any work and their only work is to oversee others who do work and spy on others. That is their only job. Overtime, they rise up the party ladder and if lucky they come in contact and be of service to some high ranking party member, they will rise to very high levels. The rest of the population slog away and all their success is paraded as success of communists.


  4. LOL Abhishek when are you going to gather courage to write on Ladakh invasion by China under our great Mudiji?Or are you genuinely not interested to write on that topic as it hurts his image?Just asking.Good wishes
