Just like any other magazine or newspaper or website from India, I found this editorial 'Toothless'.
The writer had given a lot of statistics and concluded as below:
The central and State governments need to work together to draw up a map for building modern police infrastructure — or India's citizens will continue to pay a horrible price.
In my opinion the basic reason for a person to turn into a Maoist hasn't been addressed in this editorial and I feel it's very important to do it.
How are Naxilites and Maoists made ? Nobody is a born Naxalite /Maoist. For most part the same Government that fights them now are the ones that created them.
Today, in India, corruption rules. A common man is denied his rights thanks to corruption. Inflation, unaffordbility, lawlessness, poverty, denial of civil rights! Slowly but steadily these are some of the things that leads a law abiding citizen to become a naxalite or a Maoist.
I don't know why that is not being addressed? Why doesn't a newspaper like THE HINDU have the guts to write about this?
India can control the Maoists / Naxalites by throwing out Corruption and by making sure that the 'System' works. Making sure that 'Democracy' works.
Police won't help.
