Muslim leaders question the basis of CPM

By M P Prashanth


Kozhikode: At a time when the CPM gets ready to stress its Marxian ethos at the 20th party congress, Muslim organizations have unleashed a campaign against Marxism through their mouthpieces. The latest issues of magazines brought out by these organizations say that the ideology is not a solution to capitalism and questions the CPM's approach towards Muslims.
Prabodhanam, the mouthpiece of Jamaat-e-Islami, has an article by Muhammed Velam which states that the CPM has failed to understand the ethos of Islam.


Presentation of Chekkannur Moulavi as the leader of Muslim renaissance at the history exhibition organized as part of the congress has proved that the party has not understood the community properly, he wrote.


Faced with the threat from fascism, Muslims in India tried to befriend the CPM. But the treatment meted out to the Indian National League (INL) exposed the latent dislike the CPM nurtured towards Muslim organizations. Muhammad went on to add that the CPM too was not free from the Euro-centric and colonial attitude towards Muslims, which acted as a thick wall between the communists and the Muslims.


The editorial of Sathyadhara, the organ of the E K faction of Sunnis, says that it would be a worthwhile exercise to experiment the Islamic economics at a time when hollowness of both capitalism and communism has been exposed.


The article by M A Salam Koottalungal flays the CPM for trying to appropriate the spiritual leader Maburam Syed Alavi Thangal, who was also the leader of the anti-imperialist agitations in Malappuram.


According to him, Thangal had forewarned the emergence of materialist ideologies even before the advent of communism.


The article by P Noorul Amin in Thejas biweekly, the pro-PFI magazine, focuses on the 'murder politics' unleashed by the CPM. The article titled 'How did the red flag become red' brands CPM as a party which could not tolerate difference of opinion.


The murder of NDF worker Fazal at Thalassery and the killing of MSF activist Shukkoor at Pattuvam in Kannur have been highlighted to show how 'the CPM also has the face of Sangh Parivar'.


In Sathydhara, A P Abdullakutty, MLA, who deserted the CPM, suggests that the party congress should take the initiative in discarding the age-old concept of people's democratic revolution as it did with the Kolkata thesis. The magazine has articles by IUML leader K N A Khader, C R Neelakandan and K S Hariharan.
