Which is the terror form India should fight first? Is it Islamic Terror or Saffron Terror? I think the first terror form that has to be fought is the Red Terror (Naxalites).
They are longest surviving terrorists of the Independent Indian society, spanning across the country and spreading across religious and regional barriers. Naxals run their own governments in many tribal areas of the country. They collect taxes and do so-called “welfare activities” (which are nothing more than a sham). They are not accountable for the taxes collected. Naxals mercilessly kill candidates and voters who take part in democratic processes like the elections. This is evident from the havoc they wreaked during the first phase of pools in Chatisgarh.
Naxalites pretend themselves to be protectors of the poor but are no better than the merciless landlords whom they are supposed to fight against. They control people with terror and strong arm tactics. They frequently target law enforcing agencies in the form of mine blasts. Many tribals are fed up with their presence and want to come out of it. However any rebellion is quelled with the same old tools of murder, arson, looting, rape, torture, etc.
Naxals are more merciless towards the civil society than the hardcore terrorist groups. They don’t mind taking help from India’s enemies across the border to carry on with their nefarious activities. Use of sophisticated weapons in their attacks is a clear pointer towards external support. Their influence has been growing off late in southern states also. It is time that the civil society came together and raised its voice against the Red Terror. If these forces are not eliminated mercilessly, in a few years from now, we may be heading for a civil war. We require huge budgets and a dedicated force to fight this form of terror. Most importantly, all those political formations which support their ideology must be banned.
