The Devil & The Deep Sea

The Chatisgarh Government, in an attempt to wipe out the Naxalites, started a movement called the Salwa Judum in June 2005. In the local tribal dialect “Gondi”, “Salwa Judum” means the “Path of Peace”. But this “Path of Peace” is becoming more often the path to bloodshed, destruction and displacement. As many as 3,200 tribals have been recruited to fight the Maoists. Over 250 deaths have been reported since Salwa Judum was in initiated last year (250 according to official estimate but thousands if first hand reports are to be believed).
E.A.S. Sarma (former Secretary, Department of Economic Affairs, Government of India) wrote in his recent article in a national daily, "The counter-insurgency strategy of the Chhattisgarh Government, with Salwa Judum at its core, has unleashed civil strife in Dantewada. It has already pitted brother against brother and village against village."
