The comrades from Kerala are not amused.

Lal salaam Castro Trump gets a taste of Malayalam trolling after his post on the communist leader

Donald Trump might have said "I love Hindu" in an attempt to win over Indian-Americans in the recently concluded Presidential elections in the US but clearly, not all Indians are dazzled by him. 

Trump had recently posted about the demise of Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro's death on Facebook: “Today, the world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades. Fidel Castro’s legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights….”

The communist revolutionaries in Kerala were far from pleased. If Maria Sharapova, Mitchell Johnson, and The New York Times discovered what it was to be steamrolled by Indian trolls, Donald Trump is on his way to a similar 'enlightenment'. Unlike many parts of the world where communism is considered to be a dead ideology, it is very much alive in Kerala and has seeped into its popular culture too. Leaders like Che Guevara and Fidel Castro are icons to the Kerala comrades, so it isn't surprising that are now seeing red at Trump's post!
 
Sample these:

“Trump, you don’t even deserve to speak the name of Fidel. You were scared to touch him when he was alive, now you go barking, when he is dead.”

“Castro was a leader the world admired for the last many decades, you are just someone who mushroomed in yesterday’s rain."

Mixing dialogues from popular Malayalam films and arguing in their native tongue, the Malayali blitzkrieg on Trump's Facebook wall is sure to leave a lot of people puzzled, including the next POTUS!
