A petrol bomb was allegedly thrown at BJP’s district committee office in Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday, news agency ANI reported. No injuries or major damages were reported from the incident. Meanwhile, BJP has called for a district-wide strike on Thursday.

Kerala has witnessed several incidents of politically-charged violence, with both BJP and ruling CPI (M) at the center of these attacks. BJP President Amit Shah, during his recent visit to the state had made a reference to the violence and said that such incidents would not hinder the party’s growth in Kerala.

Earlier in May, the office of the lone BJP legislator in Kerala, O Rajagopal, was attacked. Rajagopal blamed the CPM for the attack, though the ruling party refuted his claims.

In January this year, the crude bombs were hurled at BJP’s offices in Kerala’s Naruvanur and Mattanur regions. The attack had come just hours after a bomb was hurled near a public meeting venue of CPI (M) state secretary Kodiyeri Balakrishnan at Kannur, a traditional hotbed of CPM-RSS clashes

    The way in which BJP is ru the country the same way it is repaid.. Violence is being let loose on the undefendable by BJP and it's dumy organisation. The nation is in the grip of fear.

                islamists and communists have similar ideology, while weak talk about secularism/democracy and when in control sharia and violence, elimination of oponents. These evil forces should be forcefully removed from Indian public sphere making appropriate cons utional changes. Their offshoots j!hadi ter0r!sta and Maoists are doing their dirty job on the ground.

                    Recently RSS TERRORISTS with INPUTS FROM AGENCIES AND TOTAL SUPPORT FROM STATE TERRORIST RAJNATH Singh murdered a Hindu in Andra Pradesh and pasted posters near the dead body that it is revenge by Muslims. NIA was informed to guide the RSS TERRORISTS ON HOW AND WHEN TO MURDER THE HINDU. NIA had also prepared how to move coins to prevent the murderers from getting caught. IT IS STATE TERRORISM ALL OVER INDIA WITH HELP FROM INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES EXECUTED BY RSS BRAHMIN TERRORISTS!

                        Keep it up Kerala. Good work. Get rid of the chaddi ba5tardds descending from cowbelt (which now includes gujarat -- no education, no culture, no literature, no arts, no nothing except cows and gadhas - not for nothing the wild gadha is the state's second animal icon after the prime gadha Modi).
