Thiruvananthapuram : Throughout history, the communist establishment worked to preserve religious harmony and isolate communal forces, said Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. Several communists have laid their lives along that  way. UK Kunjuraman is one of the most luminous names among those martyrs,  said CM in Facebook post on Wednesday.

During communal  riots in Thalassery, Comrade Kunjuraman headed a communist squad that pushed back Sangh Parivar attacks against minorities, in revenge of which the  fanatics murdered him. Each Keralite is thus deeply indebted to Com. Kunjraman for the religious harmony we experience today.

Today is Comrade Kunjuraman's martyr’s day. His glowing memories will prove to be  strength  and guiding light against communal  fanaticism. It’s a reminder to us that running through veins of each communist is humanity that  transcends  all differences.  Let’s go forward imbibing that awareness and taking up responsibilities. My deep respects to the memory of Com. UK Kunjuraman, wrote CM.
