Canary Trap, in one of its posts in May 2012, had mentioned how Maoists in India are getting active foreign support and it is growing with each passing day.
According to Maoist-linked websites, after a major international conference in Hamburg on November 24, 2012, it was decided that an international day of support in various countries will be launched from July 1. The day (also the anniversary of slain Maoist leader Cherukuri Rajkumar, popularly known as Azad) will be observed as an international day of support and solidarity for the people’s war in India.
There are speculations that the person behind the naxal tactics/techniques of implanting explosive devices on the CRPF Jawan’s dead body or inside his belly (who might have given training to naxals about this surgical technique) is Prabhat Mochi
Without going into the merits or demerits of Gandhi’s statement, what is clear is that such an assertion before a foreign envoy – while keeping in mind that India at that time, and still continues to, was seeking American influence over Pakistan to clamp down on extremists groups targeting India – was not merely distasteful but smacked of naivety.
