Arrest 'pseudo intellectuals' with Naxal links: BJP - Newindpress.com

Arrest 'pseudo intellectuals' with Naxal links: BJP - Newindpress.com

This link is just a placeholder to show what has been happening in Bangalore for over the last couple of weeks.

First a couple of naxalites were killed in an encounter by the police. Now a big hue and cry was made by a few people who considered themselves intellectuals about taking the bodies of the naxalites in procession. The police refused to comply and cremated the bodies in police custody. This angered a lot of Communist "intellectuals" some of whom actually threatened physical violence.

Sure enough, 7 policemen were killed in a village near Pavagada, Tumkur. This was seen as retaliation from the Naxals to the police killing of their people.

With this development, Naxal violence has come big-time to Karnataka. We were all thinking that all this was in Andhra Pradesh and was probably a violent reaction to the overbearing and haughty landlords in the Rayalaseema part of AP.

Several so-called-intellectuals including the director of the popular serial Mukta - TN Seetharam, Ravi Belagere, UR Anantamurti and GK Govindarao had castigated the police for the naxal killing. But after the policemen were killed, surprisingly, there has been no condolence message from any of these people. If this silence indicates support, then these people have to be arrested for interfering with law and order.

TN Seetharam made a statement before the airing of his Mukta serial that he would stop showing the Naxal movement favorably in his serial. He also 'recanted' his statement that he supported the Naxal movement in the face of this exhibition of violence. This statement was in the Vijayakarnataka (a Kannada newspaper) Reader's column.

However, the great left "Intellectual" AnaathamUrti continued to not condemn the Naxal movement explicitly. Neither did he express condolences to the dead policemen. Though organizations such as the RSS or the BJP had nothing to do with this incident, he has once again drawn a comparison between both.

Now my question to this moron is - when has the RSS or the BJP killed policemen ? Since when have they observed the Indian Independence day as a black day ? Does the BJP and RSS have access to AK-47 rifles ? Even as an impartial observer, I have to say that though the VHP (not the RSS) had issued some shrill statements against muslims (I don't like some of those statements) they have never killed policemen and never have had access to AK47s. So this great blockhead who is also a litterateur must come down from his ivory tower and see the ground reality. Ability with words is not the same as the ability to comprehend reality. Such people must really be pulled down from their pedestals and be made to see reality. Since their words are read by many people, it is their responsibility to the people to give statements only after a thorough understanding of the issues. Otherwise, let them maintain a dignified silence.

At this point, I must make a detailed study of Marxism and discredit it thoroughly. Though I don't like some ideas, the idea behind that is probably good. As in our Indian Darshanas, every darshana cares for the people - but does not understand the difference between hita (good) and sukha (pleasure). But as they say, the way to hell is paved with good intentions. Why are people in India still hanging on to this widely discredited ideology?

In my opinion, people have to think based on specific issues and not paint the issues with a right or left brush. Of course, this takes more time. But don't get painted red or by any other colour!
