      The antinational communist government of Kerala should be dismissed immediately. The Commies had no place in today's world.

        The amount of bloodshed the CPIM cadre has brought upon the country is unparalleled. It's the only murderous partly in the country. It's time BJP took them on and defanged them. And the anti nationals of JNU have not spoken a word against all these murders.

                "An eye for an eye only ends up making the w world blind" - Mahatma hi.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;People, the all-powerful eny in a democratic country "choose" to stay silent to such kind of heinous crime ."People of Kannur" together with the political parties are "responsible" for the death of those two persons. Kannur citizenry is as usual silent/inactive about these gruesome murders happening around them (most probably because of fear or helplessness). But People of Kannur has to speak up against these cruel murders happening around them. How can we call our country a democratic one when its citizenry cannot freely speak out against evils existing in the society? People must say to these political parties that, they have had enough of killings, blood and cries. They must decisively say that no party can hamper the peace in the society. No offence to the people of Kannur. But I have to say to Kannur citizenry please don't be silent about these crimes because "Silence in the face of such kind of heinous act is a Crime". lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;To the Government of Kerala: You have to act with iron hand against all the parties to the crime without discriminating on the colour of the flag. Government must take precedence of the fate of the previous governments in and around India about their silence against the crimes committed against the society and humanity. No matter what colour your flag bears it will be wiped out of existence by the people of India if you choose to turn a blind eye. The most important thing to the people of this country is not development but safety and security of themselves and their family.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;To the Political Parties: You are playing with fire (citizens). One day people will decide your fate and no power in the world will help you. It will burn you into ashes. Take precedence from "previously biggest national party".
