A 22-year-old Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) worker, R Nandu, was stabbed to death by workers of the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) in Kerala’s Alappuzha district on Wednesday (24 February), reports Hindustan Times.

Clashes erupted between RSS and SDPI, the political wing of Popular Front of India (PFI), when SDPI had taken out a ‘provocative’ rally in Alappuzha’s Wayalar, which was objected to by the RSS workers.

Six SDPI workers were held by police in connection with the murder. Tense situations prevail in the district as RSS called for a district-wide strike on Thursday (25 February).

Both PFI and SDPI were involved in many cases of violence. Recently two members of Popular Front of India (PFI), Asad Badruddin and Feroz Khan, from Kerala arrested by Uttar Pradesh police have revealed that they got help from a Bangladesh based terror outfit Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen in arranging explosives and firearms to carry out terror activities in India.

On 17 February, PFI held a rally followed by a large gathering of its activists in the coastal town of Ullal in Dakshina Kannada district. This event has left the police, district administration and the general public baffled at the sheer force it demonstrated, indicating a rising subscription to a muscular Islamism.

The route march saw participation of over 5,000 Muslims, many of them dressed in uniforms that are usually donned by militia. The protesters raised hate slogans against people belonging to other communities, in a chilling message that smacked of the intent to dominate.

Another similar roadshow was organised by the PFI at Mallapuram in Kerala which had depicted a few Mapilla activists flogging actors who were dressed in the RSS ‘Ganavesha’ and raising anti-Hindu slogans and singing a martial song about the 'uprising of Islamic forces'.
