Militant Hindu asks whether Christians are never attacked because they serve Maoists
by Nirmala Carvalho
Indresh Kumar, a member of a paramilitary group close to India’s ruling party, accuses Christians of having a secret deal with Naxalite insurgents. For the president of the Global Council of Indian Christians, his “inflammatory and dangerous” words undermine “secular and multi-religious India."
Mumbai (AsiaNews) – India’s armed militants Maoists "have never targeted churches and priests just because they serve them or is there some other reason?" asked provocatively Indresh Kumar, a leader with the Hindu nationalist Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) as he spoke to reporters on the sidelines of a Forum for Awareness of National Security (FANS) in Raipur (Chhattisgarh) devoted to leftwing insurgency in south Chhattisgarh.
Following the outcry his speech caused, the politician was quick clarify his statement. "My intention,” he told reporters, “is not to criticise Churches. I know they are committed to India and their people believe in serving the nation, but I want their active role in eradicating Maoism; therefore, I have put forth these issues. They should decide whether the movement has brought life or death to the region”.
For many years, Maoist violence has disrupted life in many a state like Chhattisgarh. The Naxalite movement was founded in 1967 in Naxalbari, a village in West Bengal. In 2004, two of its main factions merged to form the Communist Party of India (Maoist).
