Fight to Finish Naxals, The Indian Taliban

The Naxals of India have proved to be more dangerous and inhuman than the Taliban of Pakistan and Afghanistan. The Taliban kill innocent people but some of them also kill themselves in suicide bomb blasts. The Naxals massacre security personnel and kill innocent people but not themselves in suicide bomb blasts. The Naxals also burn schools, railway stations, power stations, police stations, damage railway tracks and loot banks, arms and weapons.

Concerted efforts and measures, including air bombing, are being made by the Pakistan government under pressure from America to wipe out the Taliban. This is achieving a substancial success and is being appreciated.

The Naxal Maoists are creating hell mostly in the states of Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Bihar, and Andhra Pradesh. Not a single week passes without the Naxals conducting some or the other deadly attack, their latest worst-ever attack in Chhattisgarh state being the landmine explosion on April 6 which killed 76 security personnel belonging to Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF). The ill-trained CRPF is no match to the dare devil Naxals, who always respond to the appeals of Home Minister Chidambaram for peace with another deadly attack.

If Pakistan is succeeding in containing and controlling the Taliban with the help of the Army and the Air Force, what prevents the Indian government from using the Army and the Air Force to fight and finish the Naxals? Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has said many times that the gravest security problem of India is that of Naxals. But surprisingly the gravest problem is not being tackled seriously with the boldest measures. Make use of the army to fight and finish forever the inhuman and most unscrupulous Naxals, the worst Taliban of India.
