Intelligence bureau playing dirty tricks with Pro Maoist Bloggers

August 6, 2007

Intelligence bureau playing dirty tricks with Pro Maoist Bloggers

An inquiry by a two member commission that we ordered to look into the
hacking of resistanceindia.blogspot.com is over.

While there is no proof to implicate the Intelligence bureau, they continue
to remain the primary suspects.

It must be noted that the hacking of resistanceindia was not out of
some brilliance on part of hackers but carelessness on the part of blog admin.

This latest attempt to subvert the growing voice of revolutionary bloggers is
nothing more than an indication of the desperation of certain elements.

The account was hacked by creating a dummy login page that looked
like a gmail account page.Hence we advise users to always type in
the web address of the service
provider(like blogger.com/gmail.com)
than logging in by clicking on links.

IMPORTANT : Now that they have control of resistanceindia it is possible
that they are monitoring all visitors to that blog. Hence we recommend
users not to visit it and all those who have linked up
the blog to remove the links from their website.

Also do not email resistanceindia@gmail.com or respond to emails
received from the same email address.

It is also possible that they are now scanning all emails sent and received
from that id for whatever it is that they are looking for.

In our Disclaimer .. we have put that

This blog is purely for educational and informational purposes and
if you find any content objectionable or offensive please get
in touch with us through email or leave a comment towards the
end of this post

So what this means is that if you have any objections to our blog

Is this blog responsible for the death of Com Rajamouli ?

June 26, 2007

When I started this blog… I never in my wildest dreams
expected it to end in this manner…

Almost a year ago peoplesmarch.com an independent website that
provided news on the Maoist Movement in India was blocked
by the Indian government.

It was then that I took a spontaneous decision to start a blog
to provide news and updates on the Maoist movement.
I thought I would be doing my bit to counter censorship in India.

And that is why we today have naxalrevolution.blogspot.com

If peoplesmarch.com wasn’t blocked then this blog would
never have come into existence. I would have been content
reading their updates.

I even had a decent blog back then where I made cartoons called
Indiacorporatewatch but had to stop once I started
blogging at this address.

One of the primary motives of the naxalrevolution
blog was and still remains to counter the reactionary
naxalwatch blog and we did a very good job of it,
delivering far more superior content and balanced news.

But never did we imagine that this blog will be accessed by
maoists and not even in our wildest dreams did we imagine that
this blog might play a role in someone’s death..

Yes.. Shocking as it may sound… this blog seems to have
blood on its hands.. or rather its pages.. and it is oozing
out of the keyboard even as I type onto my hands…

Yesterday night when I was looking for the latest news about
Maoists on Google news.. I came across this news item and it
left me dazed for a couple of minutes…

Rajamouli’s body handed over to kin

ANANTAPUR: Dharmavaram police handed over the body of Sande Rajamouli, one of the topmost Naxalite leader, to his relatives.

Rajamouli’s brother Ravindra, Amaraveerula Bandhu Vargam Sangham State leaders Padmakumari and Suseela came to Dharmavaram.

DSP Sivaiah spoke to them and handed over the body to them. Mouli’s relatives alleged that he was killed in a fake encounter and demanded an inquiry.

It is learnt that the CDs seized from near the body of the slain Naxalite contained important information. The information included the letter written by Mouli’s wife Rajita to Maoist politburo member Lakshman and e-mail IDs and websites of Maoist leaders in the world.

Newindpress

It was the last paragraph that sent my head spinning.

Now let us re read and reconsider that bit of information that
I have highlighted in red more carefully..

It says that a CD containing the email ids and website addresses
of Maoist leaders of the world were found on his body.

Now before we jump to conclusions let us think rationally
and answer some questions that I think are important
and need to be asked and answered.

Let us also make some assumptions and consider some
probabilities

What are the chances that this list was compiled by Comrade Rajamouli
who was underground by surfing random websites online on his own ?
A. Nil

What are the chances that the list was passed to him indirectly through
someone else?
A. 50-50

What are the chances that the person who may have passed the list he had was
the same as the one I posted here only a month back?
A. Very High

What are the chances that a man who was underground for 2 decades
successfully would be suddenly be intercepted by police and murdered?
A. Nil

What are the chances that the person who accessed this blog was
traced by the Intelligence Bureau which monitors visitors to this blog and all those who subscribe to it through email updates 24 X 7 , 365 days a year ?
A. Very High

What are the chances that the Intelligence Bureau monitored that person
who accessed this blog and eventually came to know about Com Rajamouli’s
whereabouts through him ?
A. Very High

What are the chances that some readers of this blog are still being monitored?
and the lives of several people are in danger all because somebody
for whom this blog was not meant for accessed it regularly ?
A. Moderate

What are the chances that my gut feeling which is saying
that this blog has played a part in this murder indirectly is true?
A. Very High

What are the Chances we will ever find out the truth?
A. Nil

What are the chances that I am going to continue this blog ?
A. 1%

What are the chances I am going to delete this blog?

A. 50-50

What are the chances that this post is just the delusion of a paranoid mind ?

A. I don’t really know !

This blog seems to have become an albatross that I have to carry around my neck for the rest of my life.

Internet Security

April 30, 2007

WARNING !

If you have visited this website in the last one year or
corresponded with us through email in the last one
year then it is possible that your
internet connection
(if you surfed from home) and your email id is being
monitored illegally by criminal elements.

And all the the data you might have transmitted
through the net like email ids,phone numbers
have
been intercepted,tapped and are being monitored.

Reactionary governments/organisations have shown themselves willing to attack and intimidate people who aren’t even radicals and who are just researching social and political movements. They are also willing to repress or monitor people for other reasons. Repression is a real threat in some circumstances, and Naxalrevolution takes this seriously for the sake of the people who visit this site and other sites for different reasons.

Maintaining anonymity and practicing secure behaiviour makes it more difficult for agents and officials, often violating civil rights and breaking laws, to identify people interested in revolutionary knowledge.

It also makes things harder for right-wing activists, vigilantes and other groups to ruin the lives of people interested in revolutionary education.

As a part of Internet Security week the below posts will guide you on how to adopt some of the best internet security practices and how to secure your means of communication

40th Anniversary of the Naxalbari Movement

April 30, 2007

23 rd May 2007 will be the fortieth anniversary of the Naxalbari Uprising.

A friend recently reminded me of the importance of this year

This year is a commemorative year as 30 years ago,in 1977 was a landmark year for the C.P.I(M.L)Groups that followed Charu Mazumdar,particularly in Bihar.For the first time mass movements were deployed.(refer to Bela Bhatia’s article on Bihar)

It is also 25 years since the C.P.I.(M.L)Party Unity group was formed which merged into the C.P.I.M.L(Peoples War) in 1998,and which later merged with MCC
to become C.P.I(Maoist).It is also 25 years since the U.C.C.R.I.M.L led by
H.B.S held it’s special conference upholding the rectified international
line.

It is also 20 years since the Dalechauk Baghera attack launched by MCC.
and 20 years since the historic anti-Khalistani rally in Moga in Punjab.(July
10th)later this year will be the 30th anniversary yaer of the formation of
Central Team Group also.

It will also be the 40thanniversary year of the Naxalbari movement on May
23rd this year.

Naxalrevolution has decided to conduct if possible a few interviews with people associated with Mass organisations and leaders of the various parliamentary naxalite factions who were inspired by naxalbari and own their origin directly or indirectly to the Naxalbari uprising.

In view of the enormous task and our limited reach
Naxalrevolution invites its readers to send in articles
written by them and of any interviews that they are
able to conduct.

You can email them to us in text format or mp3 format.

If the file you are sending to us as an attachment is large.
then please send it to us at
naxalrevolution(at the rate)gmail(dot)com

We will publish any material we receive.

We also invite suggestions from readers as to how we can commemorate
this occasion and take the message far and wide.

About

April 25, 2007

This web site is

* a blog which grew out of our personal frustration at the failure of
traditional commercial media to provide coverage of issues that
really mattered to us and to counter the massive disinformation
campaign unleashed by certain right wing elements to paint the
Revolutionary
Maoists as thugs and terrorists when we
believe they are nothing less than freedom fighters fighting for
freedom from capitalist exploitation and liberation from the
prevailing barbarian social order.

*A source of unreported (or under reported) news from India and around the globe.

* An effort to provide more depth and understanding to current issues.

* This web site is the work of a group of individuals.

* We are not affiliated with any particular political party.

* We are not funded by any group.

* We work and live in Bangalore,India.

Purpose and Intent of this website:

This website does not suggest that it contains the “truth”. The truth is a combination of all information and all facts relating to a topic. It is therefore unachievable (in our opinion) for anyone to say “I know the truth.”

If you came to this site in search of “the truth” you will be disappointed. That is also true of Aaj Tak, Zee News, NDTV and other rags that masquerade as newspapers but if you came here to gather information then you may find this blog a useful resource.

Gibran says in the “Prophet” Say not, “I have found the truth,” but rather, “I have found a truth.”

That brings us to our first point:

A great thinker once said “Liberty can not be preserved without general knowledge among people” this statement points to the absolute necessity of an informed citizenry if our nation is to evolve into a functioning progressive society.

This means that each citizen has a civic responsibility to inform himself and share that information with others. The corporate media pumps information into our homes and does a great job of providing the information that our government wants us to know. It has in my opinion become the propaganda arm of government, and a great number of those who call themselves journalists are in fact nothing less than presstitutes.

Truth is indefinable. Information is unlimited.

Hope you find the blog useful.

Regards

Team Naxalrevolution

Intelligence Bureau declares war on Pro-Maoist bloggers

April 9, 2007

Two days ago a popular forum run by us on a social networking site was taken down by the Intelligence agencies.Clearly the popularity of the forum was what alarmed the agents and in a sense of panic they decided to ask the service provider to delete this discussion forum of ours
which had approximately 200 members.

The forum contained nothing illegal nor did it promote violence.It was a place for popular discussion on current events, politics , with CPM bashing occupying most of our time.

We now believe that the Intelligence bureau is now monitoring all blogs ,email ids and groups which may even be slighly pro-maoist.Not only are all bloggers being monitored but also those who visit such blogs and subscribe to them through email.

Naxalrevolution along with other pro-maoist bloggers condemns this unwarranted harassment and aggression on part of the Cyber Intelligence and has decided to initiate suitable steps to safe guard the security of bloggers,readers and blogs.

In view of this development it has been decided that from

April 10th to April 14th

we will be observing

Internet Security Week

on this blog.

All regular posting has been suspended and we will be posting articles about the internet and create awareness about basic internet security all through this week.Regular programming resumes next week.

Regards

Team Naxalrevolution

Orkut cooperates with Mumbai Police by sharing IP addresses of users
According to DCP Enforement, Sanjay Mohite, “Early February, I met three representatives from Orkut.com, including a top official from the US. The other two were from Bangalore. We reached a working agreement whereby Orkut has agreed to provide us details of the IP address from which an objectionable message or blog has been posted on the site and the Internet service provider involved.”

Besides, an encrypted code has also been agreed upon for such communication to prevent people from posing as the Mumbai Police. “I am also going to hold a meeting with all Internet service providers to stress the need to share information. We are also hoping to rope in YouTube in the future,” said Mohite.

Earlier, if a complaint regarding objectionable content was received, the police would contact the computer emergency response team, a government body based in New Delhi, and ask it to block the concerned web page. They did not have any way to track down the culprits.
