CPI (Maoist)

Barely three months after the Dantewada massacre comes another brutal Maoist attack. 26 CRPF personnel, including an assistant commandant, fell to Maoist bullets on Tuesday (June 29).

CPI (Maoist) claim to be fighting for the rights of the tribes in the forest belt around central India. That region contains deposits of minerals which are of interest to mining companies like Tata and Essar. There have been numerous human rights violations of the tribal people at the hands of government agencies.

IMO: Current view for many is that CPI (Maoist) are real bastards and should be shot on sight. Firms like Tata are far from spotless in good behaviour but the Maoists seem to overdo responses by any reasonable standards at all.

While under detention in June 2009, a suspected Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operative indicated that the LeT and the CPI (Maoist) had attempted to coordinate activities in Jharkhand state.

The CPI (Maoist) maintains dialogue with the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist) who control most of Nepal in the Coordination Committee of Maoist Parties and Organizations of South Asia (CCOMPOSA) according to several intelligence sources and think tanks. These links are however denied by the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist).

Latest reports indicates that the Maoist Communist Party of the Philippines Southeast Asia’s longest-lived communist insurgent group—has been reported to have engaged in conducting training activities for guerrilla warfare for Indian Maoists.

Some members of the Indian government argue that operational links with China do exist, with training coming from Sri-Lankan Maoists and small-arms from China. China denies and is embarrassed by any suggestion that it supports foreign Maoist rebels, citing improvements in relations between India and China, including movement towards resolving their border disputes. Maoists in Nepal, India and the Phillipines are less reticent about their shared goals.

IMO: CPI(Maoist) seems to be a bad thing and whilst relations with China could be improved, the difficult international situation and unrest within and throughout China must be borne in mind. In fact Maoists within China may have a case, but irrespective of some bad US and internal Indian corporate behaviour, India should be currently without CPI(Maoist). Closest to the correct view is probably held by people, like Didi (Mamata Banerjee), who far from being an extremist as the Marxist liars are prone to claim, is apparently a friend of Sonia Gandhi ! And there is no need to kill innocent people for a rather vague and self-centred view like CPI(Maoist) do, whatever fancy platform they try to put forward. Their attempted association with the Taliban is bad enough.
