The Mao-Naxal menace in Hindu terrain

How the bastard offspring of Communism operates
They are called as the bastard offspring of Communism and are very much against the Hindu way of life. It is also wellknown that they are backdoor operators for other frontal organizations. However, very little is known as to just how Maoists and Naxalites have grown to such alarming proportions in recent years.
So, when officers and officials from Maoist-hit states came together for a conference organised by the Institute for Conflict Management, to discuss strategies to combat the Maoist insurgency, they put down the following as the strategies and the strengths of the Maoists.

Solid recruitment strategy: Officials who have long been in the thick of Maoist insurgency say that the main ploy used by the outfit to recruit people is by catching them young. They say Maoists attract youngsters in the regions where they have considerable clout and involve them in some criminal activity.

"This turns the police attention towards the youngsters. Once that happens, the Maoists suck them in further involve them in graver crimes, ensuring that they can never go back to the mainstream," says a senior official with the Maharashtra government.

It is said that in many cases, the Maoists resort to threats. Former minister in the Andhra Pradesh government Vijayarama Rao adds, "Wherever there is a discontentment, there will always be individuals, organisations and ideologies that will urge the use of violence to air their discontentment. That is what the Maoists are doing in most parts of the country today."

Fight for popular causes:The Maoists also take up popular issues of the common man and seek to project themselves as the key to a solution. "They protest against what they perceive to be injustices meted out to the common man.," says Rao, who has also been the director of the Central Bureau of Investigation. As a downside for the Maoists, there are not many students joining their ranks these days.

Organisational powers: One main reason officers attribute to the rise of the outfit is their strong organisational assets. One officer from Andhra Pradesh who has been in the thick of the issue for a long time says their frontal organization is a bigger threat than their armed units. These frontal organizations are the ones who go to the ground level and shape public opinion.

"We need to device a clear strategy as to how we will counter the frontal organisations. They play a much more important role than what is thought to be," the senior Andhra Pradesh officer warns.

Rajya Sabha member Arun Shourie agrees. Shourie says there is a very urgent need to examine the fontal organisations. "Who are behind these organisations? It is the duty of both the government and the media to find out about the people who are behind these organisations and find out what their interests are," he says.

Propaganda: One thing that all officers are unanimous about is the notion that the media lends a more sympathetic ear to the Maoists than to the State. "The Maoists use the media and the intelligentsia to maximum benefit. A most wanted Maoist can sit in the comforts of his hideout and issue threats to the security forces and the politicians. There is nothing that anyone can do about it because the media is too eager to go in and have his version. Such things are of no value to the public. Neither are they in public interest," an officer from Andhra fumes.

Change according to times: The modern day Maoist is tech savvy; has all the modern weapons and is just too well informed of the issues of the day. One senior police officer, without wanting to be named for this report, says, "We were shocked to find that they were using laptops, data cards and other gadgets with ease. Any modernisation you see in the force in that aspect is the result of us having merely followed them."

Nor is the modern day Maoist going to the masses with issues like land reforms. "He talks about LPG prices, effects of globalization, multi-national companies, liberalization, The World Bank and the World Trade Organisation. They are taking up causes like real estate, SEZs and displacement," says Srinivas Reddy.

Beyond all these, the main strength of the Maoists happens to be the biggest weakness of the State -- a poor understanding of who the enemy is. During the course of the conference, one thing that the serving officers, analysts and the former officers failed to have a consensus on was about the motive of the Maoists. While the serving officers -- those who are in the middle of the rut, fighting it day in and day out -- always invariably spoke of the Maoists as a military organisation. They saw them as a military outfit with territorial ambitions. The former officers and top cops often described the Maoists as a political outfit driven blindly by ideology. The observers, analysts and the journalists -- who too see the problem on a regular basis but as outsiders -- felt they were a bit of both.

Shourie aptly summarized: "It is a political movement with military objectives. At the end of the day, they are all about dominance and control." Srinivas Reddy sums up: "Right now, the State is pitted against an invisible enemy, who is engaging them in an unconventional protracted armed struggle. And we must accept that we lag behind in specific areas and address them."

I do appriciatee on this article. Especially for muslim theory and idilogy. Yes Muslims never love peace in this world. All terrists are muslims, some age will come that all muslims also will be terrists.
I would liek to heighlts abt christinaty alos. Everywhere christians show their love(tghere are few incidents of illegal affairs too between priests ) but 90% they work for the people. Why Kamath is not botherd on theier ideology? Abt Safron every one know what happend to Godra, leave that like all muslim terrists , safron also has ideology liek muslims . Kill if soem one kills. Safron people killd many christians , show even single incident that christians killd them. Wholy I can compare safron with Muslims.

I would liek to say about Safron gundas ..almost all safron heigh command / members and their studied and still studing in Christian school. They know how Nuns and priests behaves with them . More they love to server all relegion. After finishign schoolign and education same people show other faces. Why this is . All because of Name right. Safron thinks that Christians convert other pople in to christain. I do agree for convertion, but remember that in christianity many groups there those are in this business. But concider only cathloc(true Christisns ). Never conver any others by force. Why Kamath can not concider this? Mr Kamath be a constructive person rather than distructive person. U have rights to say wroug abt other relegious, same time do appriciate any relegious who do good work. Otherwise u r fit for safron ideology.
Jai Hind, Jai Bharatha Mathaki.


Read my other posts. WHere I have exposed the missionaries.

I am a balanced person. I also take care to mention the positives of Islam and Christianity. However, the fact is that negatives outweight the positives. I am sorry. That is the way it is.

As for Gujarat, it was retaliatino for Godhra. A counter Hindu jehad is a reaction.

Why don't you you wear the saffron of our country and our falg and help other Indians remove the injustice we have done for centuries to the Dlits and tribals. The there would be no need of any religion - each would be free to pursue his/her own.

If the government can send the armed forces to flush out maoists, it can definitely do a lot to see that the tribals get the benefits that is due to them.You cant simply treat tribals as sub humans.The biggest draw back and the enemy of India, especially Hindus themselves is the Caste system(devide).Recently, even the
high court and the supreme court have given biased verdicts, against Adivasis, favouring the Elite in grabbing the tribal land in Jharkhand, which was greated for the tribals.(Example, Nagri,Ranchi,Jharkhand tribal land snatched by the barrel of the gun, for,building IIM,IIIT & National Law University )
