Bogus activists must shut up

Intellectualism, or pretensions thereof, has become the biggest
hurdle in India's fight against Maoism. Rhetoric, rant and far-
fetched arguments are being unabashedly applied and promptly
amplified and propagated using popular media to make a case for the
Maoist as victim. The burden of free speech, the so called hallmark
of democratic governance, has made it difficult to ignore such
propaganda.

Not least because many of these so-called activists and 'human
rights' spokespersons have been nurtured and supported by the very
political parties which today form part of the Government. No wonder
then that more people in the Congress are making noises against the
Home Minister than against the Maoists even as the common man
continues to live in fear and suffering.

For anyone with a vestige of doubt, the latest attack by the Maoists
on a civilian bus in Dantewada claiming at least 40 lives is enough
to confirm what many know instinctively -- that Maoism is terrorism.
Simply because their mindless violence is not known to be fuelled by
funds or ideas from across the border and the fact that they are
essentially home grown should not grant their beliefs respectability.

The distance between the masses and the classes, the ordinary and the
elite becomes rather pronounced in the way the privileged, well
ensconced in the comfort of their lives and aware of their near-total
insulation from the Maoist menace, use cold 'logic' data, statistics
and other references to 'published sources' to argue in favour of
Maoists. Meanwhile, the ordinary people continue to suffer in
silence.

The dictionary describes terrorism as "the calculated use of violence
(or threat of violence) against civilians in order to attain goals
that are political or religious or ideological in nature; this is
done through intimidation or coercion or instilling fear". As to the
argument that Maoists take up arms because they are deprived of their
share of development gains, have we not heard enough of the same
noise and paid the price for sympathising with the so-called poor
youth pushed into terrorism? When ordinary lives are at stake, and
intellectuals are doing nothing to help, can we please request them
to step aside?
