This is with reference to the news about West Bengal Director General of Police Naparajit Mukherjee, addressing a meeting of chief secretaries and police chiefs of nine-Maoists-hit states, he stated that ISI has a close liaison with some pro-Naxal organizations through banned SIMI (Students Islamic Movement of India) in the state and are helping them to instigate the people against the government. It is important to mention here that for the first time a senior officer has come on record blaming the ISI for being Naxals partner in carrying out anti-government activities. There is not a singal day that Pakistan or ISI is not blamed in the Indian media in one way or another, to keep the pressure on and defame it internationally.

However, instead of wasting all her zeal in playing ‘blame game’ against Pakistan, India could have made its internal situation better by concentrating on the remedy of actual issues which compel the people to revolt against the Indian government. So, instead of targeting Pakistan, India must pay attention to this ‘big internal security threat (Naxalism)’.
