THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: CPI(M) State secretary Pinarayi Vijayan has called upon secularists in all communities to resist the bid to use religion as a fa�ade for terror activities.
Inaugurating the V.G. Govindan Nair Memorial Institute of Legal Studies and Research instituted by the All India Lawyers Union and addressing a seminar on the influence of religion in politics here on Saturday, Mr.Vijayan said certain organisations were using religion as a cover for their terror pursuits and establishing a theocratic State.
The resentment among the minority communities against the systemic delay in initiating action against the perpetrators of violence by those in the majority community was being misused to woo them to terrorism. �Minority terrorism is encouraging the terrorist elements in the majority community too. Both minority and majority communalism and terrorism were two sides of the same coin and the Left is opposed to it.
