CPI(maoisterna) svarar (delvis) på kritik

I augusti berättade vi om hård kritik mot CPI(maoisterna) angående några maoister i Jharkhand som eventuellt burit sig illa åt i samband med att en person dödats. Aktivister som normalt är positiva till maoisterna stod bakom kritiken. Nu har svaret kommet från partiet: Man vill fortsätta utredningen av det dödsfall som orsakade krisen, samtidigt som vissa tilltag i lokalorganisationen kritiseras och partiet ber om ursäkt för dem.

Partidokumentet ser ut så här… :

Bihar – Jharkhand – North Chhattisgarh- UP Territorial Regional Committee

1st September 2011
Red salute to all the members of PUCL, PUDR and all the justice loving

This is to inform you that on 2nd March, 2011, Niyamat Ansari of
village Jerua, PO Manika, District Latehar (Jharkhand) was awarded the
death penalty as per the regulations/procedure of our lower level
committee. As Niyamat Ansari and Bhukhan Singh, were working in close
association with Gram Swaraj Sanstha and Jean Dreze, member of the
Central Vigilance Committee of NREGA, some intellectuals across the
entire state and country have in one voice criticised the CPI (Maoist)
party for this incident. Along with this a fact finding team was
constituted under the leadership of Jean Dreze in which some of the
intellectuals who support our movement were included. Nandlal Singh,
Gokhul Basant, Aruna Roy were part of this team. Following this in
reaction one of the members of our lower level committee without
applying his mind put up posters asking for action against these
intellectual friends in our people’s court. Also some words were used
in a pamphlet, which were no where near correct, as citizens can
express their reaction even on any right action of ours. It is their
right to express their opposition in response. Even in such a
situation our organisation does not believe in taking any such action.
Therefore in this matter, with the most heart-felt self- criticism we
take back the decree issued by our lower committee members and
apologize to all the justice loving intellectuals for these mistakes.
Also no action will be taken on Bhukhan Singh for the time being and
the lower level committee too has been prohibited from taking any such

Now the question is why was Niyamat Ansari awarded the death penalty.
On this matter too several facts have been provided by the lower level
committee. But nevertheless we have not reached a conclusion, as a
team has been constituted to do a fact finding on the above incident.
We assure you people that we will do an in depth fact finding in this
matter and will try to present the truth behind this incident at the

With revolutionary greetings.
