Kannur: Once again, P. Jayarajan, a member of the CPI (M) State Committee and a former MLA, has delivered a controversial and threatening speech. He criticised Yuva Morcha activists for planning to protest at the residence of M. N. Shamseer, an elected representative. Jayarajan, who himself is accused in a murder case, warned against any actions targeting Shamseer and threatened violence, stating that they would send any Yuva Morcha members to the mortuary. He cited the history of violent activity in the region as a warning.
Yuva Morcha organised a peaceful demonstration in reaction to N. Shamseer’s contentious comments. However, Jayarajan stated that Shamseer’s remarks should not be used to criticise him and reminded everyone that it was Shamseer’s constitutional role and that he would not be misled by anybody, even BJP members.
It is noteworthy that P. Jayarajan previously served as the MLA from the Koothuparamba constituency and faced legal challenges related to his election. He has also been linked to a murder case involving the killing of Youth Congress Mattannur Block Secretary SP Shuhaib, resulting in the dismissal of accused party members by the CPM. Shuhaib’s father, CP Muhammed, urged a CBI probe to discover those responsible for the murder. “The role of then-CPM district secretary P Jayarajan should be looked into.” CP Muhammed stated.
In light of Speaker AN Shamseer’s speech, which has been deemed disrespectful towards Hindu beliefs and deities, a major controversy has erupted. His words have been seen as evidence of the alleged anti-Hindu stance of the CPI (M). Hindu believers have expressed anger and criticism against the speaker for openly insulting and showing contempt for their religious convictions.
Various organisations, including the BJP, Yuvamorcha, and Hindu Aikyavedi, have lodged complaints with the police, claiming that Shamseer’s statements are intended to provoke religious discord. The complaints against Speaker AN Shamseer are coming from different parts of Kerala, reflecting the widespread concern over the issue.
