Mark Twain once said
"It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt."
Former SIMI leaders it seems do not believe in this policy..
Interview with Former SIMI President Yasin Patel..
And the Maoist leadership in India wants to build an alliance with these
fools to combat Hindutva Fundamentalism ?
The key to neutralizing Hindutva fundamentalism is divorcing Hindu's from
Hindutva Organisations but this is not easy to do... and definately not
something that the Maoists are capable of...
Fundamentalists thrive on each other and reinforce each other...
That you can finish of one with the help of another is a mistaken point of view.
If current trends continue , I think we will soon witness a mass resurgence of both
Hindutva and Islam inspired fundamentalism both feeding off each other while
the Maoists will find the political space they occupy shrinking.
I would advise the Maoists to stick to exploiting and deepening class differences
rather than taking up religious causes and deepening religious differences.
Maoist's must not forget the political suicide that some Naxalite leaders
committed in West Bengal in the 1970's by their wrong stand on the
Bangladesh War of Liberation.
And in case you still didn't understand what I mean by fundamentalists thrive
on each other you can read the bajrang dal interview.
Bajrang Dal and SIMI are two sides of the same coin..
It would be advisable to maintain equal distance from such organizations.
