India has also never really acknowledged the fact that its internal situation is a simmering cauldron. The northeast is in revolt in what is being called the Red Corridor—all the way to Nepal. The Communist Party of India—Maoist CPI-M is spreading its tentacles in India’s major urban areas especially in the areas where high growth and investment is creating social disparities. Gujerat, Bangalore, Ahmedabad and Surat are the cities most likely to see CPI-M activity in the future—Gujerat being the state where unspeakable atrocities were committed against the Muslims. This entire framework links to the rise of Hindu extremism and terror that is taking shape and form within India.
Yes, India does have its share of problems. Not only is there tremendous religious friction, but there are so many ethnic differences that it hardly seems like one country. Of course all these problems can be resolved if the people of India are provided for. Unfortunately, this might not happen in the near future because of the corruption in the government, poverty among the masses and fast emerging hindu extremist mantality. Already minorities have been severly attacked and brutally terrorized in India. If this tide of extremism is not checked, the might spell devastation for a fragile image that india is trying to protray of itself as a secular and developing country.
