Maoists vow support to Kashmiri protests

Nagpur: The central committee (CC) of the Communist Party of India (Maoist) has saluted the Kashmiri protesters for their resolve in securing their rights, a Times of India report said Monday.Through a two-page release, the rebels have extended their ‘revolutionary salute’ or Inquilabi salaam to the Kashmiri protesters, criticising the use of force by the government to crush the resistance of the people, the report said.In a scathing criticism on the role of the central and state governments, the Naxals have claimed that the enemy was the same, be it at Dandakaranya or Kashmir, Times of India said.The naxals have also equated the stone throwing youths of Kashmir to the bow-and-arrow equipped tribals of Dandakaranya. The CC “believes that the Kashmir belongs to Kashmiris”. It has also appealed to all to support the ‘just national liberation struggle of the people of Kashmir’, the Times of India report says.The CC has lashed out at the media for distorting Kashmir’s history. Naxals have also urged citizens across the length and breadth of the country to raise their voice against the ‘heartless killing of youth’ by the security forces.They have also made an appeal to the activists and right bodies to demand the withdrawal of the forces from Kashmir. The rebels had made a similar demand several times in the Dandakaranya region in the past too.The CC, along with the people’s army and other revolutionary outfits, has vowed to continue supporting the valley protesters.
