The report by United States says, CPI (Maoist) is the fourth deadliest terror group in the world

Even the world has realized that the CPI (Maoists) terrorists are a threat to India. In a recent report published by US, it has claimed with statistics that CPI (Moaists) are the 4th deadliest terrorist organisation in the world.

In a report titled “National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism: Annex of Statistical Information”, the USA listed ISIS as the most deadliest terror organisation in the world which had killed 9180 people in the year 2016 and 4350 people in 2017.

Taliban is in the second position as it has claimed 3620 lives in 2016 and 3650 lives in the year 2017. In the third position stands Al-Shabaab which has killed 736 people in 2016 and 1464 people in the year 2017.

And in the business of killing innocent people, the Indian based Maoists/Communist party of India- Maoist (CPI-Maoist) stands in the forth position. In the year 2016 the Maoists had carried out 338 attacks in India and had succeeded in killing 177 lives. In the year 2017, they had carried out 295 attacks and had succeeded in killing 206 people.

In the year 2016, the maoists had injured 141 people and had even kidnapped 171 people. In 2017, the Maoists injured 2122 people and had held 125 people as hostages.

Five perpetrator groups with the most attacks worldwide, 2017

The US report also said “The frequency of terrorist violence by Maoist extremists in India declined between 2016 and 2017 with respect to the number of attacks; however, the number of people killed increased 16 percent, and the number of people injured increased 50 percent. Both the number of attacks in which people were kidnapped or taken hostage, and the number of people kidnapped or taken hostage by Maoist extremists in India decreased in 2017”.

One will be shocked to know that even though there are 43 active terror groups in India, more than half of the attacks were carried out by the maoists in 2016. The report further exposed the sympathizers of urban naxals saying “Information about the perpetrator groups responsible for terrorist attacks in India was reported in source materials for 64 percent of all attacks. Compared to the other countries that experienced the most terrorist attacks and fatalities in 2016, the diversity of perpetrator groups was much greater in India, with 43 active groups. However, more than half of the terrorist attacks carried out in India in 2016 (53%) were attributed to the Communist Party of India-Maoist or Maoist perpetrators not specifically identified as belonging to a particular organization”.

The report also says that the attacks on India has reduced compared to other parts of the world:

Yes, the report said that the number of terrorist attacks declined eight percent in India and also said the frequency of terrorist violence by Maoist extremists in India declined between 2016 and 2017 with respect to the number of attacks.

It further added “Despite the increased lethality of terrorism in India, the number of people killed remained relatively low compared to other countries that also experienced a great deal of terrorist violence. On average, terrorist attacks in India caused 0.5 total deaths per attack in 2017, compared to 2.3 deaths per attack worldwide”.

Now it is interesting to see whether the maoist sympathizers call the report of United States fake?
