"Asha" takes up political arms

Asha for Education, is a US based non-profit, non-governmental organization (NGO) with substantial presense in American Universities. They are hence prohibited by law from taking active role in politics.

Recent developments have shown that the organization takes heavy political shots under the influence of communism. The Communist Party of Indian (CPI) has various factions with some legitimate political parties and others banned under international laws for terrorism.

Recently, a political article from Asha Parivar showed up in SACW (8.2) (South Asian Citizens Web) - a foriegn based communist watch dog. This is the justification given for Pakistan sponsored terrorism in Kashmir:
some extremist organizations use violence to promote their political ideology. Among these are those organizations, members of which were so subjugated socially, economically and politically that they had no option but to pick up arms. Even though in reaction other organizations emerged which too resorted to violent ways, the problems of groups belonging to this category could be politically resolved through dialogue. These organizations (viz. Lashkar-e-Toiba) do not victimize common people but only target the suppressor (viz. The Indian Army).

Whereas, the BJP is viewed from a selective glass:
On the other hand there are organizations which use hatred and violence against other communities to establish their supremacy. They have abused people's communal sentiments to instigate them to indulge in violence.

Whether Asha Parivar is right or wrong is not the question. A more worrisome concern is their political campaigning and "a strong us vs. them" ideology. Consequently, Asha Parivar has a five year plan:
We (Asha Parivar) will have to watch out for them.


  • Are they really such radical communists taking it to ridiculous extremes or do they have some secret motives? Either way, they want to break up the country - it's ridiculous how much media and support these people get.
