Jesus was a freedom fighter: Pinarayi Vijayan

pinarayiThiruvananthapuram: “Jesus is one the world’s best known freedom fighters. As we see Jesus as a freedom fighter we felt it would be right to display him among the Marxist thinkers at the CPIM state conference,” said CPIM state secretary Pinarayi Vijayan. He was reacting to the controversy related to the display of Jesus Christs photo at ‘Marx is right’ a historical photography exhibition held at Putharikandam Maidan.

Jesus said, “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” According to Pinarayi Vijayan this is the voice of the suppressed and the oppressed. “Jesus Christ was a warrior who fought against suppression and exploitation. He drove out spurious money lenders out of the church. If we respect Jesus Christ for these reasons, it need not hurt the sentiments of any believer,” He added.
