Che Guevara, and the people’s longest love. Barrister Hameed Bashani

There is a picture of Che Guevara on the website of a major English newspaper in Pakistan. President Ayub Khan is also in this picture. This photo was probably taken at Karachi Airport during Che’s visit to Pakistan in 1965. This was the second visit of the famous Marxist leader to Pakistan. Che Guevara came to Pakistan for the first time in 1969, when he was on a tour of the Middle East and other Third World countries. Many have questioned why the most famous Marxist, anti-American, anti-imperialist and pro-Soviet leader of his time was meeting with a man like Ayub Khan, who not only formed a military alliance with the US, but all such regional and global powers. Became part of the military alliances, which were formed under the auspices of the United States against the Soviet Union. This is an unanswered question, which will be answered in the same vein sometime in the future, but here we talk a little about Che Guevara’s personality and his struggle. Che Guevara is a popular figure among young people around the world, but his popularity knows no bounds in Cuba. Everything in Cuba has the shadow of Che Guevara. The popularity of Fidel Castro or the respect of Jose Marti, the two other great Cuban figures, has its place, but the position that Che enjoys in Cuba is hardly comparable in the world. The tourist gets a sense of this as soon as he steps on a plane to Cuba, where the world of songs about Che begins. Seeing his tall photos from the Havana airport gives an idea of ​​the love and affection Cubans have for Che. There is such an atmosphere about Che that a tourist must visit Che Guevara’s memorials, museums and shrines. Che’s largest and most important monument is located in Santa Carla, a small town in Cuba. Santa Carla is two hundred and sixty one kilometers from Havana. There are planes, trains, buses and private cars to travel between the two cities. I planned to go from Havana to Santa Carla by bus during my trip to Cuba. It was not possible for my tourist guide Alicia to go on this trip due to some Egyptian deaths, so I decided to go alone. There is a daily bus service from Havana to Santa Carla. Every hour there is a bus from Havana to Santa Carla. I took the express bus which does the journey without stopping on the way. The bus took about four hours to reach Santa Carla. The place where Che’s remains are buried in Santa Carla is called “Plaza Che Guevara”. Along with Che, the remains of his friends, who died during the armed rebellion in Bolivia, are buried here. A two-foot statue of Che Guevara is installed here. Che’s remains were discovered in Bolivia in the 1970s. Apart from Che’s remains, there is also a museum, where items related to Che are kept. Santa Carla was chosen for the burial and memorial of Che Guevara’s remains because the city was conquered by Che Guevara and his comrades in the 1958 war against Batista. It was a decisive battle in the Cuban Revolution, forcing Batista to flee the country. In another part of the same city, the remains of a train carrying Batista’s military equipment, which was derailed by Che Guevara and his cohorts, still remain. . Northern Life reporter Liz Filming once wrote about this memorial that a visit to this memorial is like a walk through history. Regardless of what your political views are, or what you think of the man, things related to Che offer a glimpse into the world’s longest love affair between a people and their leader. The amazing thing about this monument is that 500,000 people from Santa Carla worked for 400,000 hours during its construction. The complex highlights various aspects of Guevara’s life. There are highlights from his time in Guatemala and the United Nations, and his famous farewell letter, which he wrote to Fidel Castro. The world’s most popular revolutionary, Ernesto Guevara de la Serna, popularly known as Che Guevara, was born on June 14, 1928, in Rosario, Argentina, into a middle-class family. He studied medicine at the University of Buenos Aires. During his medical studies he traveled extensively in South and Central America. The widespread poverty and oppression he witnessed during his travels convinced him that revolution was the only solution to the problems of South and Central America. Apart from this keen observation, he adopted Marxist ideas and entered the field as a professional revolutionary. Later, during the revolutionary struggle, he went to Mexico, where he met Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro in 1955. Guevara joined Castro’s movement and played a key role in the eventual success of his guerrilla war against Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista. Castro overthrew Batista in 1959 and assumed power in Cuba. From 1959-1961, Cheguera was President of the National Bank of Cuba and then Minister of Industry. In this position, he traveled the world as Cuba’s ambassador. In Cuba he initiated plans to redistribute land and nationalize industry. He led Castro’s government toward an alliance with the Soviet Union. He went on to join the global struggle, wanting to spread the revolution to other parts of the developing world, and in 1965 Castro announced that Guevara had left Cuba.
After leaving Cuba, Guevara spent several months in Africa, particularly the Congo, where he tried to train rebel forces in guerrilla warfare. His efforts failed and in 1966 he secretly returned to Cuba. From Cuba he traveled to Bolivia to lead forces in a rebellion against the government of Rene Barrientos. The Bolivian military, with American support, captured Guevara and his remaining fighters. He was cremated on October 9, 1967 in the Bolivian village of La Higuera and his body was buried in a secret location. His remains were discovered in 1997 and brought back to Cuba, and reburied in Santa Carla. Tourists traveling to Cuba cannot go without Liz Filming’s confirmation that the Cuban people’s love for Che Guevara is indeed the longest love any country has ever had for its leader.
