The Indian state has now gone officially fascist in the wake of the Operation Green Hunt against the Maoists. Many unarmed opposition movements and leaders, who apparently have nothing whatsoever to do with the armed Maoist movement, are being called “Maoists” and arrested on ridiculous charges.
One wonders exactly what the laws are on this matter? Supporters of this shit government, tell me, what exactly is legal and what exactly is illegal in terms of these Maoists? Surely if you are a member of their armed force, that is illegal. If you are a member of the CPI-Maoist political party, that is illegal too.
What else is illegal? If you talk to a Maoist, is that illegal? What if you interview one? What if you let them stay in your village? What if you say, “I like these Maoists and I support them.” Is that illegal? It’s almost impossible to tell what is legal and what is illegal anymore in this conflict.
India is going to turn into another shit death squad terror state like (past or present) Peru, Colombia, El Salvador, Mexico, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Paraguay, Brazil, Panama, Philippines, Indonesia, Russia and Turkey.
Arundhati Roy is an outspoken Leftist from India who has written some penetrating articles on the Maoists there. Does she support them? Well, I suppose so, though she’s rather coy about it. Is that illegal? Who the Hell knows!
The Indian state is now going after Roy, an acclaimed author, with full force. State-sponsored demonstrators appeared outside her home throwing rocks. Two politicians in Chattisargh state has issued complaints for her arrest on charges of “supporting the Maoists.” A top Hindu fascist BJP politician in Chattisargh called for Roy to be shot on sight. The head of the Salwa Judum death squads called for legal action to be taken against Roy.
