  • Recruitment of middle class urban intelligentsia in the Naxal cadres to further the Naxal propaganda/ideology in the mainland.

    Implications to internal security:
    1. Brainwashing in educational institutions and workplaces
    2. Disruption of societal harmony
    3. Stalling growth and developmental processes
    4. Possibility of violence reaching urban centres

    Difference from conventional naxalism:
    1. Conventional Naxalism relies on robbery, threats, violence. Urban Naxalism relies on debates, demonstrations and protests.
    2. Conventional naxalism is carried out in the open and Urban naxalism mostly happens in the background or under the veil of some other issues.

    Govt approach mainly involves around Intelligence activities. Intelligence agencies regularly monitor and keep an eye on suspects to prevent or thwart any security threats.
    Im not sure if there's any policy out in the public domain that is specifically meant for Urban naxalism.

    The term " urban naxals" has been used to refer to those elements of society who live in urban areas ( unlike rural areas where naxals operate) and generally belong to the empowered, educated, intellectual class who empathise with the (rural) naxals and support them morally or logistically.

    It is a challenge to internal security as it can be seen as an extended arm of (rural) naxals and hence requires more resources to deal with.

    It's different from conventional naxals in the sense that urban naxals are already a part of mainstream society unlike the conventional naxals who are a marginal section who live in backwrdness and poverty.

    Govt's approach to deal with them can be seen in the arrest of such ' urban naxals' recently from Mahrashtra who allegedly had been plotting to assassinate the Prime Minister.

    Wasn't these urban intellectuals emphathisers existed right from the beginning of naxalism as most of ideological support was given by these people and they formed idealogical backbone of naxalism.. Is this urban naxalism term old wine in new bottle ?

    Yes, you are right. It was there pehle se, but with the advent of technology in every field, the thing has gained more pace.

    There is no such thing as 'urban naxal', it's a propaganda by Hindutva fanatics to suppress dissent and rake up mob frenzy

  • inventing labels is characteristic feature of fasciwaadi log, because it makes it easier to evade questions and degitimising any form of dissent by simply saying --ye urban naxal hai iska mt suno , irrespective of whether the other guy is actually have neutral opinions.
    ye labels ka trend modi lekar aaya hai use phle kbhi itne labels nhi sune honge kisi ne har din twitter pr nye nye naam churn krte rhte hai ye suar...I have set the field other players can occupy the pitch and take the game forward , thank you gn

    The low IQ religitards and the hero-worship culture is responsible for the proliferation of such terminologies. Interestingly, it's not a feature of India alone, all across the world the 'deplorables' of society are ganging up under fascist leaders and inventing idiotic labels like 'race-traitors', 'left liberal', etc. to silence the voices of reason. Perhaps this shall be the crisis of our century for collective humanity, the revolt of the masses against the rule of reason.

  • I have coined a new term -- Bhagwa Incel Jihaadi
    but I am not in power and I dont have an army of twitter bots to make it trending so no one would ever create a thread asking about these jihaadis on a platform where intelli-gents of the society scrutinize , debate complex issues

  • This ain't coming in UPSC. Man, this wasn't even coined by the government, rather by a retard some agnihotri dude, who asked "kapde utar ke nacho" to some actress and further the idiot was exposed by newslaundry, in an interview where he says "facts are not facts"

    The biggest crisis of our century is our generation, which has deplorably low voices of reason. Most never had any holistic knowledge about country, and with time news changed from being "read from newsppaers" to being circulated by social media. This generation has lost its voice of criticism, is buoyed and drawn by the TENOR of confirmationalism and importantly are impatient and lack the quality of accepting other people.

    One who doesn't understand the value of freedom, is sooner or later destined to lose it.
  • Anyone who is termed as Urban Naxal by Vivek Agnihotri is "Urban Naxal" and rest are just as Bhakts :trollface:

    Ps. No offence to anyone.

    Makes me curious. Wait will see it. I don't think however UPSC will ever stoop that low to ask what are bhakts and what are urban naxals though. In fact such threads are articulated so that certain people can conform to their biases. Its okay to have bias, but this is blind confirmationalism.

  • Untill the Bhakts are out of scene, I'd say working in Central Services is far better than All India Services. I don't know how I can be politically neutral if I have to deal with incel Bhakts all day.

    Delete this thread. This is hardly an academic topic. Its not the government that invented this terminology. Academic discussion is possible only when the topic is academic. Its not the business of UPSC to literally ask questions regarding the filth that comes out of a propagandists mouth, and the day it happens, I swear, I will stop appearing this exam.

    Tab to Bhaktology bhi aa sakta hain upsc mein.

    #metoo is a global phenomenon

    Urban Naxal is a book written by a producer who made 3rd grade cinemas and failed to gain traction and wants now to become a MP. This in turn is used by the other extremes like Mr. Dua, who use it to show, see blah blah we are so vulnerable

    I've no business to be saying this here. But I'll say it inspite of what others will think of me.

    This is going on for some time now, i consider forum my second home and when things go bad, I just have a weird feeling, I cant express it, but it's just weird and not pleasant.

    If you have something to say, please say it in a way which will not provoke others.

    You have the right to dissent, use it but use it judiciously.

    You could have just said, this urban naxalism is a misnomer and no such things exists, probably a conspiracy by X y z. Kindly don't read such stuff for UPSC.

    But no, urban naxalism is filth, ye woh incel, bhakt, jihad, idiot and what not.

    Yes, feel free to bash me now. I'm used to it. I won't reply anymore. Just disappointed that people who are so well read can't measure their words carefully. Smh.
