Maoists justified in taking up arms: Arundhati Roy - Asha & AID activist

Devil's Advocate:

"My fear is that because of this economic interest the government and establishment actually needs a war. It needs to militarise. For that it needs an enemy. And so in a way what the Muslims were to BJP, the Maoists are to Congress," Roy said in an interview with Karan Thapar on CNN-IBN’s show Devil's Advocate.[link]

It is perfectly fine to pitch a political voice for justifying a violent, communist agenda but what is surprising is that people like Ms Roy, Medha Patkar and Teesta Setalvad are supported and funded by foreign donations made by Asha for Education and Association for India's Development. These orgaanizations disguise under non-profit status in US but are funding virulent communist activities.

The average unsuspecting donor takes these projects as a service to impoverished and needy. For instance, the Bhopal tragedy and Singur violence are really a political agenda against "imperialism", "capitalism". Similar is their agenda in supporting Medha Patkar. Their education services are tainted with non-belief teachings -- which is quite contrary to other education services which promote "equality" in all religions.

But if you support communism -- you are right in supporting these activist and their activities.

Kolkata's missing millionaires and Lalgarh

It serves perfectly fine for the ideology-spewing bhadralok neta swearing by everybody from Marx to Stalin, Lenin to Castro, Che to Chavez – and even Prachanda – to ``keep `em poor and burning''. That is why the Communists have through the years protested, often scuttled, everything needed for upliftment of people, from introduction of English in junior classes to multinationals setting up businesses. Because money brings comfort and comfort has an intrinsic liking for capitalism.

Meet Mr Bardhan, China’s spokesman in India

The Indian Left, which takes its political cue from China, promptly echoed the line of their handlers in Beijing and asked the Manmohan Singh government not to meddle in the “internal affairs (read Tibet)” of the neighbour. The party, which raised objections over the visit US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Dharamsala, said: “The government should see that their meeting does not turn into an anti-China meeting.”

Maintaining that Tibet issue was an internal affair of China, CPI general secretary AB Bardhan said, “All countries have internal areas where situation is sometimes disturbed. There should be no interference from anyone.” This loud advocacy for the respect for “One China” and “China’s territorial integrity” is not normally evident when Beijing makes its claim to Arunachal Pradesh. The Left, it be recalled, came out with a late response when China repeated its claim late last year.

Asha for Education, of Maoists?

This is an old issue but still worth noting. The infamous charity organization - Asha for Education - has been funding Maoists, says CNN-IBN. AID, a similar politically motivated organization can also be involved as they both work very closely in U.S.

CNN-IBN's SIT met with a Western Union money transfer agent, Shahbuddin who admitted that a lot of NGOs were in collusion with Maoists."Almost all the NGOs are corrupt and have got links with Maoists. The funds are, indeed, being siphoned off to Naxals," he told the SIT. Donations run into crores, often made in cash. Audits are rare, so naturally the state government is concerned.

Samanvaya Ashram in Bihar is a specific NGO in question. I cannot find the article where CNN-IBN reported this, but Asha/AID have been funding this NGO for a while.

BBC NEWS South Asia India ban on Iran nuclear exports: "India ban on Iran nuclear exports

Iran says its nuclear programme is only for producing energy Indian officials say exports to Iran that could be used in the country's nuclear programme have been banned.

Trade officials said the ban would prevent anything that could be used to enrich uranium from being exported directly or indirectly to Iran.
The restrictions comply with a decision taken last year by the United Nations Security Council.

The Indian government's Communist allies attacked it for voting against Iran at the UN nuclear agency, IAEA.
