It will not be wrong if it is said that the Communist parties in India are struggling because of a ‘successful democratic system’. But what do we see when we look at the countries where the communist rule has existed for a long time or even today? We see concentration camps in which minorities are confined, prisons in which journalists and activists are imprisoned, streets full of protesters, police who exist only for barbaric action rather than protecting people, and serious political, human rights and economic crises. . We see three countries which are the biggest examples of communist rule in the world – China, Russia and Cuba. However, Vietnam and Laos are also included in the count of communist countries. Today we will know how the current situation is in these countries which have gone through a long communist rule…
Uighur Muslims imprisoned in Chinese concentration camps
An example of what the Chinese Communist Party is doing in the country is seen in Xinjiang. Just a few days ago, a United Nations report said that the forced detention of people of the Uighur community and others in Xinjiang, China, could come under the scope of a crime against humanity. Several journalists and independent human rights groups have written extensively on human rights violations in Xinjiang over the years. Concentration camps have also been seen many times in satellite photos. Physical and sexual abuse, forced labor and the suppression of cultural and religious expression are facts that China does not allow the world to see.
Russia is like Soviet Union
Even though Russia is no longer communist, it is derived from the Soviet Union which was the biggest face of communism in its time. However, not much has changed in Russia even today. Monarchy in the country, excessive censorship, oppressive actions on the opposition and curbs on the media are some of the things that were in the Soviet era and continue to this day. Russia has been accused of human rights violations several times. The arrest of the leader of the opposition, Alexei Navalny, last year and designating him a “terrorist” in January this year is the most obvious example of Russia’s repressive policies.
Hundreds of people fled from Cuba
Talking about communist countries, it is necessary to mention Cuba, the neighboring country of America located in the Caribbean Sea. America and Cuba have an old enmity. Trump even imposed restrictions on travel to and from Cuba. A small country facing US sanctions is on the verge of complete ruin after first Corona and then Ukraine war. The country is facing severe economic crises, from food items to oil prices are skyrocketing. Long queues are being seen on the streets for medicines and basic things. Hundreds of people have fled the country, plagued by inflation and poverty. In July 2021, there were massive protests across the country against the ruling Communist Party of Cuba.
Party left to ask questions
The communist parties advocating the ‘socialist system’ are struggling to survive in India today. Obviously his party was not happy with the questions of poetry raised on communist ideology. Resigning, she wrote that I should be relieved of my posts and responsibility in CPIML because I want to ask some political questions. As a CPIML leader it is difficult for me to ask this question. After leaving the party, he posted a list of his questions on social media. In her Facebook post, Kavita wrote that Stalin’s regime or China’s failed socialism during the Soviet Union were some of the worst authoritarian regimes in the world. In July he said that the Soviet Union had been industrialized by ‘enslavement of Ukrainian peasants’.
