You clearly didnt do the bare minimum research because the Indian subcontinent has massive historical and contemporary communist movements. India is going to be a big factor in revolutionary socialism going forward, CPI(M) consistently dominates politics in Kerala and has inroads throughout the country.


 No.2865195

India has fucking enormous number of communists including the naxalite insurgency which has and still does maintain presence across vast swathes of the country, as well as a long history of socialist activism and party work and relations with the USSR. Nepal also has a history of lots of various communist parties, maoist protracted people's war and is currently governed by a democratically elected communist party. Afghanistan was literally a people's republic. South Asia has had and still has significantly more communists that the US, France or Britain ever had tbh.

Sri Lanka's constitution straight up states that it's a socialist country, and none of the governments have had the balls to change that.

Also, just mentioning Kerala should be enough to completely disprove that there isn't a large communist movement.

Not to mention that India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh all have more effective mixed economies, and are more left leaning in economic policies in general, even compared to central and eastern european countries.

The only thing stopping this shithole world tipping into chaos is the white race. Once we are gone it will collapse into a communist turdskn sewer of unimaginable proportions. What is funny is that niggers ALWAYS return to despotic cannibalistic behavior once whitey is gone. The stupid fucking Jew always has our societies to hide in (and of course they then actively destroy them), just like niggers they will find out once its too late after they genocide us. I laugh imagining them being the only pale skin in a world of indians, pakis, chingchongs niggers and other assorted shitsmears. They have planned our genocide for thousands of years but I don't think they have fully thought this through. However, they are part nigger and do practice voodoo and child sacrifice so who knows.

The communist movement in South Asia is massive. The idea that the European communist movement has been historically bigger is just wrong. The CPI (M) (admittedly revisionist leadership) controls a support base of over 100 million. There are in India alone, hundreds of communist parties, and the smallest and most irrelevant of them are larger than every single European/American group, except the KPRF and KKE.

Just months ago, millions of Communist peasants rallied against the BJP govt. In Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka, the communist movements are similarly large. Pakistan has the smallest communist presence, but even there the movement dwarfs anything in Western Europe or the US.

Not into sakaist anti hwyte IDpol BS, but the reason you don’t hear about this is western chauvinism. Drama involving microsects of 10-30 people is broadcast throughout the world and fixated on by leftypol and western leftists, while struggles involving millions of communists in the global south are basically ignored.

1. “The Naxalites” are not a single group. There are a couple dozen Naxalite parties, most of which are actively at war with and killing each other (often more than they fight the state)

2. The statistic you are quoting is both old, and confused. The largest of the Naxal groups, CPI (Maoist) was “active” in a region as large as the UK. By active, this means they had groups of 10-100 people in a particular province. This is not equivalent to “controlling” it. CPI Maoist are pretty clear that they do not posses any base areas, although they do practice dual power in some tribal villages.

3. As mentioned this stat is really dated. IIRC, it is from 2012. By 2013 or early 2014, their power and activity was half of that due to massive repression during operation green hunt. By 2015 it halved again, and most of their leadership & mid level cadre were dead. Things only got worse from 2016 - 2017, although it is hard to find real statistics. There is some evidence of rebuilding in late 2017/2018, although they are nowhere close to their strength in 2012.

There were anon. Read abt the 1968 movement in Pakistan. Also Pakistan elected a weird islamic socialist(Bhutto) in the 70s but he was deposed by a US backed islamist general and his nationalization policies arguably wrecked the countries’ economy. Zia class-cucked all of Pakistan and its been a reactionary hellhole ever since. The Pakistan People’s Party is currently hated because their most recent regime was a fucking hell to live through, and they took power after another literal military dictatorship. RN tho there are increasing leftist sentiments within the youth but its all bougie radlibbery and nothing that’ll develop class consciousness or actually help the working class.

No. Mukti Vahini was formed in response to crackdown in aftermath of Mujib's victory in 1970 general elections.

It was a arms struggle supported by India and culimunated with India invading the erstwhile East Pakistan.

It should be noted that Mujib wanted to establish a socialist state with his Baksal plan but got assassinated.

Allow me to introduce you three noted leftists from India

1. Bhagat Singh - Young revolutionary who fought against the British Raj. He was hanged by the british in 1931. He is also known as Shaheed-e-Azam (supreme martyr)

https://www.marxists.org/archive/bhagat-singh/index.htm

2. Charu Majumdar - Maoist who started an armed conflict with the state of India following Mao's people's war doctrine. This insurgency is known as Naxalism as it began from the village called Naxalbari

https://www.marxists.org/reference/archive/mazumdar/index.htm

3. Jyoti Basu - Once held the record of longest serving Chief Minister of any Indian state till 2018. His party - Communist Party of India (Marxist) has a history of being elected to power for 34 years straight (1975-2009) in the state of West Bengal. It should be noted that along with Kerala and Tripura, West Bengal used to be Communist Party's stronghold and source of their seats in the Parliament.

there were a big movements but all got crushed. because am*rican deployed puppet army dictator and imperialism.

lets talk about Zulfikar Ali Bhutto here:

>His policy largely followed a tight and closer relations with China, normalised relationships with Soviet Union, built an Islamic bloc, and advocated a creation of new economical alliance largely benefiting the third and second world countries.

>On 5 July 1977 the military, led by General Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq, staged a coup. Zia relieved prime minister Bhutto of power, holding him in detention for a month. Zia pledged that new elections would be held in 90 days. He kept postponing the elections and publicly retorted during successive press conferences that if the elections were held in the presence of Bhutto his party would not return to power again.

>On 4 April 1979, the day Bhutto was executed

>The Soviet Union declared its plan to intervene in Afghanistan on 12 December 1979, and the Soviet leadership initiated Operation Storm-333 (the first phase of the intervention) on 27 December 1979

>Pakistan, under Zia ul-Haq, continued to support the mujahideen even though it was a contravention of the Geneva Accords. At the beginning most observers expected the Najibullah government to collapse immediately, and to be replaced with an Islamic fundamentalist government.

>Many political analysts and scientists widely suspected that the riots and coup against Bhutto were orchestrated with the help of Central Intelligence Agency and the United States Government because of United States fears of Bhutto's socialist policies being seen as sympathetic to the Soviet Union, and said policies providing an opportunity to the Soviet Union to get involved in Pakistani politics.[111] A former U.S. Attorney General and human rights activist, Ramsey Clark, is quoted in the New York Times[110] as saying: I do not believe in conspiracy theories in general, but the similarities in the staging of riots in Chile (where the CIA allegedly helped overthrow President Salvador Allende) and in Pakistan are just too close. Bhutto was removed from power in Pakistan by force on 5 July, after the usual party on the 4th at the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad, with U.S. approval, if not more, by General Zia-ul-Haq. Bhutto was falsely accused and brutalized for months during proceedings that corrupted the Judiciary of Pakistan before being murdered, then hanged. As Americans, we must ask ourselves this: Is it possible that a rational military leader under the circumstances in Pakistan could have overthrown a constitutional government, without at least the tacit approval of the United States?

>Many of Pakistan's political scientists and historians and leading U.S. experts such as Ramsey Clark believed that Bhutto's removal and his execution was a singular and most dramatic change in world politics and a major setback for the Soviet Union who failed to realize the effects of Bhutto's execution on its own future in advance. Bhutto's death not only was a turning point in the Cold War, it also turned out to be one of the critical points in world politics since World War II, and a breakthrough in global power alignment. Eight months after Bhutto's death, the Soviet Union invaded the Afghanistan Soviet Socialist Republic, setting up a war that severely impacted the Soviet economy and led to the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the United States emerging as the single most powerful country in the world.

This means fuck all. Take Bangladesh for example, they claim to be a “mixed economy” but then they let clothing factories get away with killing hundreds of workers.
