The Pathology of India's Security Forces

Will liberal humanists care to look at the track record of India's paramilitary forces and their brutalisation by the State which has turned them into robots conditioned to press the trigger at anyone dissenting against the State's policies? These guns make no distinction between the Gandhians and the Maoists, between the peaceful anti-steel plant agitation in Kalinganagar and the armed resistance of forest dwellers in Chhattisgarh, between non-violent and violent movements. If the ruling powers continue to ignore popular grievances and shrink the space for democratic protest through peaceful avenues, the democratic urge will then take the form of violent resistance against the paramilitary forces which have been deployed against them.
