There was “no abstract right for self determination for any minority groups”; says Prakash Karat of CPI(M) in context of the Tibetans fight in Tibet against the Chinese.
Well… what about the basic human rights! Tibetans – specifically Dalai Lama – have long stopped fighting for the self determination or a separate country… they have been fighting for simple human rights! The Right to live as a human being! Is even that “an Abstract right” for a minority group??
India’s biggest failing in Kashmir has been that it did not do a good job of this with the Kashmiri Muslims. Of course, according to me, given how the Pakistani Army behaved with its Kashmiri soldiers in Kargil (left them without burial, made them “canon fodder’) it is difficult to say who has a worse record – India or Pakistan in dealing with Kashmiri Muslims .. specially when you know how the Pakistani Government had sold of part of Kashmir to China for its own interest as opposed to Kashmiri interests!
But isn’t that what the Communists have been arguing for? The Human Rights? What is obvious is that CPI (M) gets its mandate NOT from the Indian Constitution but the Chinese Government! I cannot see any reason why the Communist parties in India should be allowed to participate in the democratic process?? They are an extension of the already militant Maoist attack from an enemy nation and these Communists should be treated as enemies of the Indian state!!
At the very least, the talk and the actions (Nandigram) from the Communists in the last few years has bared their real self – they are no different in minds or deeds than Stalin, Mao or Hitler!
They do not deserve any thing from the Indian tax payer so in my view they should be thrown out of the Indian nation and made to take the voyage over the Himalayas ON FOOT just as those poor Tibetans do running from the inhuman treatment of the Chinese!
