Is there more than what meets the eye?
Isn't there too much of a coincidence that China's aggressiveness in its relations with India post the nuclear deal have been quickly followed by an upsurge in the Maoist-Naxal violence in the country?
This is too much of a coincidence.
I may be speculative in this, but the possibility of a China angle in aiding Maoists-Naxals has to be considered, examined and evaluated.
A few questions need to be answered, more importantly investigated - where do the Naxals get their funding from? Who supplies them their arms? Who has given them expertise in guerrilla warfare?
All fingers could point to China.
The Maoist ideology is one.
The second is grand idea of pulverising India into smaller geographical entities that would never challenge China's dominance in Asia, which was mentioned in my blog, The Great Game ...
It is certainly a great strategy that not only would Chinese actively encourage anti-India sentiment in our neighbourhood, but would also stoke embers within India.
Obviously, India would be too busy to take on the challenge.
Mr. Chidambaram recently alluded towards foreign support coming in for the Maoists-Naxals. Was he referring the Chinese?
Without doubt, Maoist-Naxal violence needs to be crushed with an iron fist, else we'll end up making a horrible example of our country....
