A Protest Against ‘Rising Fascism’ by the Right Wing in Kerala

In 2015, Kerala saw many protests by left wing and Congress supporters against rising fascism at the behest of right wingers.

Now in a twist, a group of right-wing ideologists organised an event called the Vishwa Manava Sangamam on Thursday in Kozhikode against fascism and anarchism.

Their contention was that “real fascism is followed by left ideology groups, not the right-wing groups”.

There are many protests against fascism and intolerance by supporters of left wing ideology. The political killings by communist party, the intolerance they practice in countries like China is fascism. Our protest is also against terrorism. Events like Kiss of Love are against our tradition and it encourages anarchy. This event has been organised as a reply to the people who create criminals like Rahul Pasupalan.

The Manava Sangamam was for the people who died in Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, for the Jews who were murdered by Hitler, for those who died on two world wars, for those who died in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, for Yazidis who died in terror attacks and for all who lost their lives with attacks from red terrorism (communism).
