Former Thiruvambadi MLA George M Thomas’ statement that DYFI leader Shijin in Kodancherry carried out a love jihad is leading to a big explosion in the CPM. The confession of the Sangh Parivar, which was denied to the court, has been admitted by a senior CPM leader, a member of the district secretariat and a former MLA. George M. Thomas said that organizations including Jamaat-e-Islami and SDPI were trapping highly educated students in love jihad. In an interview with a channel, George M. Thomas also hinted that his local committee member himself was under the influence of the SDPI.
If there was such a love, the party should have been informed. He said he had not spoken to any of his close comrades or party cadres or organizations about the move. Jyotsana, who was married to Shijin, came from abroad 15 days ago. He also argued that he did not know if there would be such a deep love affair in 15 days. George M Thomas said the party would take disciplinary action against Shej.
At the same time, Jyotsna’s family alleges that Shejin is absconding with the support of party leaders. Christian organizations had marched here yesterday. The marriage of Shijin, a DYFI leader, and Jolsana, a member of the Christian community, has greatly widened the gap between the two religions in the region.
