The Naxal Movement was started in sixties by Charu Mujumdar and Kanu Sanyal. Today thousands of armed Naxal rebels are indulging in violence, murders, loot, arson, etc, in 167 districts of 14 sates. They have killed thousands of people including policemen and officers. They have blown up police jeeps, buses, rail tracks and raided police and railway stations. In Andhra Pradesh they had attacked Chief Minister Janadhan Reddy’s car and entourage. In Jharkhand Naxals had killed 18 innocents, including of Chief Minister Babulal Marandi, Sunil Mahato, leader of Jharkhand Mukti Morcha and Member of Parliament. They have been looting arms and ammunitions from police stations and headquarters.
Armed Naxal rebels are running parallel government in vast rural areas of Orissa, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Andhra Pradesh, etc. Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh has regarded them as the biggest threat to the nation. Is it Islamic terrorism?
