Maoists being forced into violence: Arundhati

Sagarita Ghose, CNN-IBN, April 14, 2010

Hello and welcome to CNN-IBN special in the aftermath of killing of 76 CRPF jawans in Dantewada by Maoists, there has been a nationwide debate which has been polarized one.

One argument is to about to use maximum force to crush the Maoists and the other argument is about to initiate outreach program, democracy and rehabilitation. Joining us here is the author and the activist Arundhati Roy, who has written several writings on Maoists and her open sympathy and empathy for them, has created a great degree of debate and controversy. Thanks very much indeed for joining us.

The video of the interview is available in four parts:

Sagarika Ghose: You wrote your article ‘Walking with the comrades’ in The Outlook before Dantewada happened. In the aftermath of the Dantewada, do you still stand by the tone of sympathy that you had with the Maoists cause in that essay?

Arundhati Roy: Well, this is an odd way to frame before and after Dantewada happened because actually you know this cycle of violence has been building on and on. This is not the first time that a large number of security personnel have been killed by the Maoists. I have been written about it and the other attacks that took place between the years 2005-2007. The way I look at is often you know people make it sound that on this side of people, who are celebrating the killing of CRPF jawans, and that side of the people who are asking for the Maoists to be wiped out. This is not the case. I think that you have to look at every death as a terrible tragedy. Read the rest of this entry »
