Communist Parties – The Devils to Be Wiped Out From India Forever
Let us take Quit India Movement: Mahatma Gandhi and other leaders had called for Quit India Movement to wipe out British rulers from India. When all the leaders and masses who love this country were participating in Quit India Movement what were our communist friends doing? Opposing the Quit India Movement, here is an excerpt from an article written by journalist V.K Kamat:
The one party that opposed the Quit India Movement and sought to undermine it with deliberate intent was the Communist Party of India (CPI) which denounced Gandhiji and Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose and accused them of decadence, of all things! The CPI argument was that the Soviet Union had been invaded by Nazi Germany and it was incumbent on all Communists to rush to Moscow's rescue while Indian freedom would wait. To gain Communist support which in any event was freely forthcoming the British Government released some of the Communist leaders then in jail like S.A. Dange, B.T. Ranadive and Soli Batliwala.
For Communist party the national interest then clearly meant national interest of Soviet Union. The same people are talking about national interest now is worse than a prostitute talking about character.
The Communists turned out to be more loyal to the British than the king. `People's War', the CPI organ, ridiculed the Quit India resolution and denigrated he clarion call to Do or Die as illustrative of Congress political bankruptcy. To curry British favour, CPI leader P.C. Joshi submitted to the government a 120-page report on how the Communists had been disrupting the Quit India movement in province after province, in the most shameless manner. What is even worse, the CPI, in a thesis, proclaimed that India was not one nation, but a collection of several separate nationalities, that the demand for Pakistan was a just and democratic one and that the Congress must concede to the Muslims the right of self-determination. Between 1942 and 1947 the CPI turned out to be the most anti-national party functioning in India.
The Communist leaders says that by signing the nuclear deal, India is moving away from the policies of Jawaharlal Nehru -first prime minister of India- regarding non alignment. I don’t know from when the communists started liking Nehru and his policies. If one goes back to the history books, the party that opposed Nehru most was the communists. Let us read what Nehru himself has to say about Communists. Nehru made this comment to the visiting Communist leaders from Soviet Union in 1955.
Until this year (1955) the Communist Party was saying that Indian people were not independent; they even opposed our National Day celebrations. ... They also said that when they were in doubt about the right line of action, they had to get directions from the Soviet Union. Early in 1951-52, some principal leaders of the Communist Party went to Moscow secretly, that is without passports. They came back and said that they had got directions from Mr. Stalin. At least this is what they said. The line then laid down was one of full opposition (to the Government) and, where possible, petty insurrections.
If one’s country is “pushed” to a war by another country and if you have little love for your motherland whom will you support? When America went to war against terrorism and went to Afghanistan did any American supported Osama Bin Laden? But Indian communist parties supported China when India was engaged in a full blown war with China. Here are some excerpts from Wikipedia:
China-Indian relations also deteriorated, as border disputes between the two countries erupted into the Indo-China war of 1962. During the war, a faction of the Indian Communists backed the position of the Indian government, while other sections of the party claimed that it was a conflict between a socialist(China) and a capitalist state (India), and thus took a pro-Chinese position. B. T. Ranadive, P. Sundarayya, P.C. Joshi, Basavapunnaiah, Jyoti Basu, and Harkishan Singh Surjeet were among those supported China. In general, most of Bengal and Kerala Communist leaders supported China and most others supported India.
