Sobia Nisar: Indian Insurgent Activities In Nepal

India Has Carried Out Insurgent Activities In Nepal

By Sobia Nisar

Although Indian reporters allege Pakistan for supporting Maoist guirellas in Nepal, in reality it has always been India rather than Pakistan who has carried out insurgent activities in Bangladesh and Nepal. In order to achieve its hegemonic designs in the region, it has been India's foremost priority to create destabilization among its neighbouring countries.

India through RAW has played terrorist activities in order to destabilize the respective governments in Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bhutan and other neighbouring states. Most importantly, there are strong operational linkages between Indian Maoist Communist Center (MCC), Peoples War Group (PWG) and Maoist guerillas in Nepal. The MCC and PWG based in Bihar and Andhra Pradesh are instrumental in providing Nepalese Maoists with training facilities, arms, ammunition, logistical support and safe sanctuaries to take refuge once hounded by security forces. India through its militant organizations is promoting terrorism in Nepal. The events of confrontation between Royal Nepal Army and Maoist guirellas show that Maoists are a hinderance in the revolution and prosperity and are aggravating the problems of impoverished masses because of their opportunistic and cruel tactics. Thousands of innocent citizens including women and children are slain by Maoists because they were being suspected as agents of law enforcing agencies. Ironically, India is showing undue munificence towards these Mao rebels and they safely recede into their hideouts in Indian territory after operating and attacking Nepali military and paramilitary forces. Nepali politicians claim Indian interference and abetting of Naxalites also.

King Gyanendra in his Indian visit in June, 2004 handed over a list of 35 senior Maoists leaders believed to be hiding in the state's Northern Darjeeling districts. Common denominator of this visit was Nepalese request seeking India's assistance in controlling Maoists attacks in Nepal as India holds the key of controlling Maoist insurgency. The Maoists have become the best weapon for India to fulfill its mission. Nepalese government is also concerned over the reports that Maoists cadres are being trained by LTTE Guirellas in Srilanka. There is a palpable apprehension in Nepal that India may use Maoist insurgency to send a peacekeeping force to consolidate its influence in Nepal.

Besides creating destabilization in Nepal, the ethnic crisis in Bhutan led by people of Nepalese origin is aggravated by Indian intelligence agency RAW to try and turn the political crisis to India's advantage. According to observers, it is surprising that when Pakistan renders moral/diplomatic support to the freedom fighters in Indian Held Kashmir who are fighting for an internationally recognized legitimate cause, India accuses her for committing "cross border terrorism". Hence there is no reason as to why the international community should not take cognizance of Indian nexus with Maoists insurgents in Nepal and her nefarious design to destabilize a smaller neighbouring country.

It should be the foremost responsibility of India to adopt a policy of non-interference in the internal affairs of neighbouring peace-loving countries. If only India realizes the importance of peace in the region, all problems of neighbouring countries bordering India would solve automatically. Perhaps, the Indian government realizes this responsibility and let peace prevail in the region by adopting a policy of non-interference.
