The Red Rage Naxalite-Maoist Movement, Revelations, Unheard facts

Author Name: Om Prakash Gupta | Format: Paperback | Genre : History & Politics | Other Details
Amazon Sales Rank: Ranked #45 in Kindle - Political Theory

“The single biggest internal security challenge ever faced by our country” is how the erstwhile Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh described the Naxalite menace. Through The Red Rage, the author tries to trace the history of Indian Naxalism since its inception in the sixties, which resulted in the death and largescale loss of human lives, exceeding 12,000, and loss of property worth millions of rupees during the last two decades.

So, what is it–a peoples’ movement or a state of utter neglect on the part of the government or a revolt by the deprived lot of Adivasis and forest dwellers exploited by the Indian corporations with the active connivance of the Indian politicians and dispensation? 

Read for interesting details and unheard-of revelations; gauge the extent and might of the radical forces of the dominant Naxalite group–the Communist Party of India (Maoist)–a banned organisation, and what the future holds.

Om Prakash Gupta

Om Prakash Gupta, IPS Retd., held the post of Inspector General of Police in the State Intelligence Branch, West Bengal. From 2011 to 2017, he dealt with left-wing extremism which touched its peak in the years 2009 through 2011. The State Intelligence Branch contributed largely to the control of the Naxalite menace. During his assignment as an Intelligence Officer, Shri Gupta was exposed to the CPI (Maoist) Movement in its depth and totality. It is the rich and enlightened knowledge he gained here that motivated him to write this book for the world to have some basic, simple idea of the Naxal violence and activities that is commonly known as the Naxalite Movement, the Maoist Movement or the Naxal Uprising or People’s Revolt or whichever names that have been given.
