Remembering Comrade Bala’s Revolutionary Struggle on His 82nd Birthday! (16.7.2022) 

READ THE TRUE STORY HERE!

Understand Marxism-Leninism, develop political foresight, cultivate the ability to work hard, be full of selfless endeavour, solve problems independently, be unswerving during difficulties, and work faithfully for the nation, for the working-class, and for the Communist Party!”

When speaking with my Comrades – all Members of the Communist Party of China (CPC) – they spoke with respect and appreciation for all the Revolutionary work that Aravindan Balakrishnan (Comrade Bala) had achieved during his long lifetime (today is his 82nd birthday)! These same Comrades also expressed immense regret concerning the manner in which Comrade Bala (and his family and supporters) were betrayed and ill-treated during key points in the Revolutionary struggle (during the 1970s is a case in point) but particularly throughout the last years of his life. This final bout of heightened bourgeois aggression resulted in almost a decade of trouble for him, his family and those who were ideologically close to him – which resulted in several years of imprisonment – unjustly accused and deprived of his freedom by the British Fascist State! The above quote (made by Mao Zedong) was suggested by these CPC Comrades to express how they felt the Revolutionary achievements of Comrade Bala should be expressed and contextualised. It was explained to me that General Secretary Xi Jinping has quoted many sayings of the Great Helmsman – Mao Zedong – at key-points throughout his political career, (particularly in a seminal speech he made on December 26th, 2013, commemorating the 120th birthday of Comrade Mao Zedong)! 

Understanding, support and friendship are more important than anything else.”

I then made a note of the above Mao Zedong quote that embodies Comrade Bala’s Revolutionary character and sense of ‘Solidarity’ – and which expresses the manner in which he reacted when conditions became very difficult during the Revolutionary struggle – a selfless Revolutionary response that was evident throughout the process of his needless betrayed! Reading through the documents of the Workers’ Institute from the 1970s, it is obvious that Comrade Bala was very much the Great Revolutionary Leader of the era and that he understood and expressed the Great Shining Path exactly as Mao Zedong expressed it – a clear and precise interpretation of Marxist-Leninism and Mao Zedong Thought! This is important for all working-class (oppressed) people throughout the world as it possesses a very strong anti-imperialist and anti-racist central core which continues to inspire! The inner strength that Comrade Bala exhibited in his later years – when the bourgeois oppression was at its greatest – is expressed in the final Mao Zedong quote: 

What is Revolutionary work? Revolutionary work is struggle! There are difficulties and problems in those places – and we need to solve them. We work and fight to solve the difficulties. The more difficult a place is – the more important is the need for us to go there! This is the Revolutionary work of a good comrade!”

Mao Zedong Thought was Clearly Upheld by Comrade Bala!
