Comments on: Who are India’s Maoists and why they are in the news http://blogs.reuters.com/india/2013/05/29/who-are-indias-maoists-and-why-they-are-in-the-news/ Perspectives on South Asian politics Thu, 02 Jun 2016 08:03:22 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Linnakyle http://blogs.reuters.com/india/2013/05/29/who-are-indias-maoists-and-why-they-are-in-the-news/comment-page-1/#comment-35507 Sat, 14 Nov 2015 03:40:08 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/india/?p=9791#comment-35507 Why do you call the Naxals, rebel? And also terrorist as one of the commenter mentioned? So fighting for your rights means you’re a rebel? Funny that when their land is taken away by the gov, no one bats an eye. Have you ever wondered how those poor helpless people have the urge for violence? Those farmers carrying guns? Living in jungle with not enough food yet they have the strong urge to fight the fat and powerful opponent? For me, they are guerilla and you would call them guerilla too if you truly understand them. I am not an Indian or a supporter of any group. I just read and analyze things from mine and other’s perspective.

Their solution to all grievances emerges ” from the barrel of a gun” and not democratic process. Once just cannot dialogue with terrorists and saboteurs. Govt must show the will to use requisite force to bring these terrorist hardliners to heal and then dialogue to guide the remainder towards an inclusive democratic process. S S Ray has shown the country back in the seventies that this could be done.

The human touch is lacking in the development activities. I don’t say our socialist ideology is bad but the way things are progressing is not in a desired manner. Money is doing more harm than good to the people at large. It doesn’t appear to be filling in where its presence is in dire need. Prosperity and class acts appear to be integral to each other. The society is far removed from the policies and provisions ingrained in the constitution. The essential Western ideology with some modifications wherever required can be a guiding principle and a panacea for social and economic issues facing the country!
