Re: Is it time for Maoists to be a force In Indian National Politics?
This mail reminded me of a few pages of the Indian history i had gone through some twenty years ago. Ahmed Shah Abdali unleashed his terror, ruined the Moghuls and the Marathas and looted India, just because some Hindu rulers had facilitated him for invading India and rolled red carpet for him to 'teach a lesson to their rivals'. The invader is blamed for killing thousands of innocent people. There is also a good reference of Jaichand who had helped Mohammed Ghori invade India and crush Prithviraj Chouhan. That's how Islam made an entry into India.
There are basically four castes in Hinduism but several sub-castes. There is surely a plenty of languages and true to the mailer's statement there are many types of terrorism including the Maoism. From the Maoist point of view, India is a strong candidate to invite Maoism, but there are others too such as the Muslim fanatics, LTTE people and the Christian terrorists of North East with similar claim that this country is fit for their 'isms'- in other words their ideologies, dogmas and doctrines. It is we who have to decide whether to allow such elements to prop up or crush them before they raise their hoods.
