Kozhikode: In a startling revelation, the State President of SDPI, P. Abdul Majeed Faizy, said that his party supported the Congress-led UDF in the Thrissur, Pathanamthitta, and Thiruvananthapuram. SDPI is the political arm of the Islamic extremist organization, the Popular Front of India (PFI).
He also asked the communist party to refrain from putting the blame for their defeat on SDPI.
The Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) is the political arm of the PFI, which is behind many extremist activities including the attack of a college professor for insulting Islam. PFI activists had chopped off the palm of the college professor while he was returning home from church.
PFI is also behind the murder of a Dalit activist and PMK member, Ramalingam, for resisting the conversion of Dalits to Islam by Muslim activists. He was hacked to death in front of his small son when both were returning home.
SDPI was constituted to politically support the extreme activities of its parent organization PFI. The party has fielded activists in elections and they have many seats in panchayat elections in Kerala.
The open admission of the SDPI President that its votes have been given to UDF is a clear indication that Congress party is in close connection with extreme Islamic groups in the State.
This political support to extreme groups have felicitated their rise in the state. After the recent Sri Lankan bombings, the NIA has raided many extreme groups for their involvement with ISIS.
