Urban Naxals and their KGB roots

Also Read

It was during the casual talks with my political science professor that we both marveled at the fact that Hitler killed six million Jews and everyone hates Nazism but the communists in USSR marched more than sixty million people on road to starvation, cannibalism and finally a pathetic cockroach like death but hardly anyone knows about it, we never read about it in our textbook and people are still in love with the utopia promised by communism. We indeed wondered why so?

The theories of international conspiracies to keep this information from the general public’s education seemed far-fetched thus ambitious theories were squatted down. But the questions still remained.

Why do we still have communists praising Lenin and Stalin? Why are Indians blinds to the dangers of communism? Below the articulated famine of Holodomor under the communist regime.

famine under the communist regime.
Horrific cannibalism that communism had gifted to the world

Do the images resemble equality and a paradise where everyone is happy living in paradise? Why is the keeda of communism still squirming inside the belly of our beloved Bharat Mata? Who is feeding it? Nurturing it? How do we do the gruesome surgery to get rid of it?

I finally found the answers back in 2016 during the American election. 2016 was also the time of JNU student uproar with Kahnaiya Kumar, Umar Khalid Shehla Rashid started rising to prominence, deeply troubled by the state of our nation and absolute helplessness of our government I decided to punch in the words Jawaharlal Nehru University into the search engine of Wikileaks. I am going to post evidence of what I found in those vaults. It took me some time to recover from the shock and absolute pathetic condition our of our nation. is a journalistic venture founded by Julian Assange who now sits captive inside the Ecuadorian Embassy, without any internet access or any and communication visitor privileges. He is help captive by the UK government against two United Nations Rulings for revealing the crimes of US in Iraq, Afghanistan and how American Mainstream Media rigs democracy to favour their chosen candidate, Hillary Clinton.

The following photos are taken from Global Intelligence files of CIA and Public Library of US Diplomacy Cables. These are internal CONFIDENTIAL and CLASSIFIED cables of United States of America leaked by Wikileaks in 2012.

Student unions used by foreign countries to pressurize the democratically elected government. (Following emails are from 1979)

Who does this country belong to? Democratically elected governments or foreign powers who can arouse mass protests and marches by student unions and fake NGOs?

Damning documents CIA files acknowledging fraudulent foreign funds laundered to Universities. What is this nonsense? When all this is public knowledge when will our governments take action against these? What are the journalists doing of India? Sleeping? Why no probes into these matters? Why no stories? Or they are paid by foreign bosses to keep their mouth shut? We know!

Let me get back to the subject I intend to discuss. While I researching US elections and the Wikileaks I came across the name Yuri Benezmov in one the underground blogs I was reading. He was a KGB spy who had defected to Canada and expelled all the secrets of USSR.

He came on Canadian National TV to give blow by blow account of he as KGB agent stationed in India used the methods of ‘subversion’ and ‘DISINFORMATION’ disguised as helping member of USSR government to spread false stories about communist regime.

‘Whoever controls the image of the past determines what and how future generations will think; whoever control the information and images of present (mass media) determines how those same people will view the past. “He who controls the past commands the future. He who commands the future conquers the past!” : GEORGE ORWELL

Yuri Benezmov expelled in interviews and books he gave later that the main aim of KGB was never spying on other countries, but spreading disinformation about their own country. (Following excerpts taken from his interview and book “World Thought Police”)

“At that time the ideologues and experts of the CPSU CC had worked out a new line for the KGB operations which later became known as “active measures.” These measures had little to do with the classic, romantic style of espionage and subversion of Stalin’s era. Reliable sources confirm my estimate that only about 15% to 20% of the time, money and labor force was planned to be used by the KGB’s affiliates such as Novosti for “James Bond” type espionage. The remaining 80% of the effort was directed to the creation of an ideological climate in the target countries which would enable Soviet agents of influence simply to buy (or “borrow”) the required intelligence data, using mostly rather legitimate and overt methods.”

Communists like to believe their ideology will bring UTOPIA on earth! Is this Utopia?

“There is no qualitative change in the Soviet concentration camp system. There are changes in [the] numbers of prisoners. Again, [these are] unreliable Soviet statistics. We don’t know how many political prisoners are there in the Soviet concentration camps. But we sure know from various sources, that at each particular time, there are close to 25 to 30 million of Soviet citizens who are virtually kept as slaves in [the] forced labor camp system. [The] size of [the] population of [a] country like Canada is serving terms as prisoners. So I would say that those intellectuals who try to convince [the] American public that [the] concentration camp system is a thing of the past are either conscientiously misleading public opinion or they are not very intellectual people; they are selectively blind; they lack intellectual honesty when they say that.”

Here’s what he has to say about he used to make fools out of Indian intellectuals!

“After initiation into the secrets of the APN kitchen, I was given extensive training in P.R. activity with numerous delegations of foreign guests of Novosti visiting the USSR. A typical “package tour” would include not only regular visits to “average” collective farms and kindergartens, talking to smiling milkmaids and to nicely-dressed Eskimos who spoke fluent English and played the grand piano in the woods in Siberia. More importantly, every foreign guest must be made a part of the process of deception. And that takes a person like myself: easy-going, friendly, knowledgeable about the country of my guest, with a small weakness for foreign liquors, slightly cynical about the thugs in the Politbureau, able to crack an anti-Soviet joke at an appropriate moment, but above all, able to arrange meetings with newsmakers, people who are usually unavailable to an average journalist.

This is a better picture, which reflects the true ‘spirit’ of the Soviet childhood. This picture was printed in a Canadian government publication by mistake. In the middle, you can see children playing on a small courtyard. And the caption goes, ‘This is a typical kindergarten in Siberia.’ What these idiots didn’t understand [was] that it is not [a] kindergarten at all. It is a prison for children of political prisoners. But there was not a single [mention] that what they were visiting actually was an area of concentration camps. And [it was] the job of people like myself, to help them not to notice that they are actually talking to prisoners. Most of the children were dressed, especially on the occasion of the foreigners’ visit. Of course there were no corpses on the ground. There were no machine gun guards. And well it looks not very pleasant as you see; it looks dull, but obviously does not create an impression that this is actually a prison.

On October 27, 1967, I brought a large group of editors and publishers of India’s leftist and Communist papers to the Central Committee to meet comrade Yakunin; and later comrade Ulyanovski, a boss in Agitprop. The Indians had just finished a three-week tour of the Soviet Union. I showed them all the “typical” collective farms and kindergartens Novosti could arrange, and the comrades were full of impressions and “provocative questions.” They were what we call “unscared idiots” and “truthseekers,” who wanted to show they took our propaganda seriously and expected us to do what we preach. They looked as if they believed they were invited to Moscow to exchange opinions”

You can see here in [the] Kremlin, I am [the] second on the left, with a group of Pakistani and Indian intellectuals. Most of them pretended [that] they don’t understand that we are actually working on behalf of the Soviet government and the KGB. They pretended that they are actually being guests—VIP intellectuals—that they are treated according to their merits and their intellectual abilities. For us they were just a bunch of political prostitutes to be taken advantage [of] for various propaganda operations.

Therefore you can see perfectly well the senior colleague of mine on the left doesn’t really have that much respect on his face, and [me] with a very skeptical smile, [a] typical KGB sarcastic smile, anticipating another victim of ideological brainwashing.

This is how a typical conference in [the] Novosti headquarters in Moscow [looks]. Sitting in the middle is Boris Burkov, the then director of Novosti Press Agency, [a] high-ranking Party bureaucrat in the Department of Propaganda. I am standing next to a famous Indian poet, Sumitranandan Pant. He was famous because he was the author of a famous poem, [entitled], ‘Rhapsody to Lenin.’ That’s why he was invited to [the] USSR, and everything was paid [for] by the Soviet government.

Pay special attention to [the] number of bottles on the table. This is one of the ways to kill the awareness, or curiosity of foreign journalists. One of my functions was to keep foreign guests permanently intoxicated. The moment they landed at Moscow Airport, I had to take them to the VIP Lounge and toast to friendship and understanding between the nations of the world. [A] glass of vodka, then a second glass of vodka, and in no time my guests would be feeling very happy, they would see everything in [a] kind of pink, nice color, and that’s the way I had to keep them permanently for the next fifteen or twenty days.

At [a] certain point in time, I had to withdraw alcohol from them, so that some of them who are the most recruitable would feel a little bit shaky, guilty, trying to remember what they were talking [about] last night… That’s the time to approach them with all kind[s] of nonsense such as ‘Joint Communiqué’ or [a] statement for Soviet propaganda. That’s the time they are the most flexible. And of course what they didn’t understand—they didn’t realize or pretended not to realize that [I], who was drinking together with them, was not drinking at all; I had ways to get rid of alcohol through various techniques, including special pills which were given to me by colleagues. But they were taking it seriously; in other words, they would consume quite a large [volume] of alcohol and feel quite uneasy [the] next morning.

This is the first stage of befriending a professor. You can see [me] on the left, with the same James Bond smile. On the right is my KGB supervisor, Comrade Leonid Mitrokhin. And in the middle: a Professor of Political Science in Delhi University.

The next stage would be to invite him to a gathering of [the] Indo-Soviet Friendship Society.

Everything is paid [for] by the Soviet government. He was made to believe that he is invited to [the] USSR because he is a talented, sober-thinking intellectual. Absolutely false: He is invited because he is a useful idiot, because he will agree and subscribe to most of the Soviet propaganda cliché[s], and when he [comes] back to his own country, he is going for years and years to teach the beauties of Soviet socialism, to newer and newer generations of his students, thus promoting the Soviet propaganda line.

I would bet that if, in some distant future, all the “progressive” Indians would get together, they might discover a lot in common about their trip to the USSR.

Look how Indian government was made fool by KGB agents:

In Bangladesh, it was nothing [to do] with grassroots. Most of the Awami League party members—Awami League means ‘People’s Party’—were trained in Moscow in the high party school. Most of the Mukti Fauj leaders—Mukti Fauj in Bengali means ‘People’s Army.’ [It’s the] same as SWAPO and all kind[s] of ‘liberation’ armies all over the world, the same bunch of useful idiots. They were trained at Lumumba University and various centers of the KGB in Simferopol and in Crimea and in Tashkent.

So when I saw that India—Indian territory—[was] being used as a jumping board to destroy East Pakistan… I saw myself thousands of so-called ‘students’ traveling through India to East Pakistan through the territory of India, and [the] Indian government pretended not to see what was going on. They knew perfectly well, the Indian police knew it, the intelligence department of [the] Indian government knew it, the KGB of course knew it, and the CIA knew it.

Anyway, so East Pakistan was doomed. One of my colleagues in the Soviet consulate in Calcutta, when he was dead drunk, he ventured into the basement to relieve himself, and he found big boxes, which said ‘Printed Matter to Dhaka University.’ (Dhaka is the capitol of East Pakistan.) And since he was drunk and curious, he opened one of the boxes and he discovered not printed matter; he discovered Kalashnikov guns and ammunition in there. Anyway, it’s a long story.

When I saw the preparations for the invasion into East Pakistan, obviously I wanted to defect immediately. The only thing [was that] I couldn’t at that time make up my mind [about] when and where and how.

What worth was our freedom? What worth is our democracy and journalism? If you have a problem believing any of this is true google the name of Malcolm Murridge. He was a journalist for Manchester Guardian who exposed these practices of Soviet back in 1930 and lost his job and reputation for speaking the truth. The world only acknowledges his contribution now. Google Holodomor Famine and see for yourself. Also there have been many spies who have defected bearing the same story as Yuri. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago, two thousand and seven hundred page book details the prisons and camps built by Lenin and Stalin. Other defected spies such as Ladislav Bittman, Vladimir Bukovsky wrote books such as Deception Game, The KGB & Soviet Disinformation and To Build A Castle : My Life as Dissenter.

Read further to know how communists manipulated Indians:

Another frequent assignment was coverage of “press conferences” with visiting Indian VIPs. I remember when, in July of 1966, Mr. Kumaraswami Kamaraj, an outstanding member of the Indian National Congress Party and an opponent of Indira Gandhi’s faction, came to Moscow. The Kremlin wanted to cultivate him, as he might win the intra-party struggle for leadership and become the prime minister. On July 30, Novosti and Foreign Affairs staged a marvelous farce in the grand hall of the Metropol Hotel.

The Indian guest pretended not to notice that “media representatives” asked him only questions which already contained answers, and most of the answers were in favor of Soviet foreign policy. Every Novosti person, including myself, prior to arriving at the Metropol, had been given his “questions” typed on a piece of paper, to memorize, or to read aloud if memory failed. My question was about the positive effect of the spirit of the Indo-Pakistani peace conference of Tashkent on the establishment of stability and mutual security on the Indian subcontinent. Getting Mr. Kamaraj’s affirmative answer, I simply incorporated a few of his words into an already typewritten “report” on the press conference.

This is how they took care of Moraji Desai back in the 60’s:

Slander, defamation or libel directed against a foreign person– a politician, writer, publisher, etc.– preferably an influential and anti-Communist (conservative, patriotically-minded person), resisting Soviet influence in his own country. The list of most desirable targets for the Novosti-KGB-orchestrated process of character assassination includes virtually every prominent public figure of the Free World daring to criticize Soviet foreign policy or Soviet practices at home. In India during my career with the Soviet embassy, such [a] target was Mr. Morarjee Desai, leader of “conservative opposition” to Indira Gandhi’s ruling National Congress party. With financial and ideological encouragement from Novosti, collaborators in the leftist liberal media poured gallons of venom on that person, describing him as a “reactionary, fascist, ultra-right-wing fanatic, lackey of Western imperialism, etc.” Apart from name-calling, Novosti-sponsored radical tabloids published bits and pieces of rumors, half-truths and pure fabrications, designed to discredit this politician. It is difficult to distinguish, sometimes, a locally created hate campaign against a conservative politician from a Novosti-orchestrated one.

In reality, the main emphasis of the KGB is not in the area of intelligence at all. According to my opinion and [the] opinion of many defectors of my caliber, only about 15% of time, money, and manpower [are] spent on espionage as such. The other 85% is a slow process, which we call either ‘ideological subversion,’ or ‘active measures’—‘[?]’ in the language of the KGB—or ‘psychological warfare.’ What it basically means is, to change the perception of reality,

It’s a great brainwashing process, which goes very slow[ly] and is divided [into] four basic stages. The first one [is] demoralization; it takes from 15-20 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years which [is required] to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy, exposed to the ideology of the enemy.

See any similarities?


“My first assignment was to India as a translator with the Soviet [Economic] Aid Group, building refinery complexes in Bihar State and Gujarat State. At that time I was still naively, idealistically believing that what I was doing contribute[d] to the understanding and cooperation between the nations. It took me quite a number of years to realize that what we were bringing of India was a new type of colonialism, [a] thousand times more oppressive and exploitative than any colonialism and imperialism in [the] history of mankind. But at that time I was still hoping that well, maybe it’s not that bad, [it] could be worse, and things may go for [the] better. And I even tried to implement the beautiful Marxist motto, ‘Proletarians of all the countries unite!’

Yuri in India

Second, when I started working for the Soviet embassy in India, to my horror I discovered that we are millions [of] times more oppressive than any colonial or imperialist power in the history of mankind, that my country brings to India not freedom, progress, and friendship between the nations, but racism, exploitation, and slavery, and of course economical inefficiency to this country. Since I fell in love with India, I developed something which by KGB standards is [an] extremely dangerous thing. It’s called ‘split loyalty’: when an agent likes a country of assignment more than his own country. I literally fell in love with this beautiful country, a country of great contrasts, but also great humility, great tolerance and philosophical and intellectual freedoms. My ancestors used to live in caves and eat raw meat when India was [a] highly civilized nation, six thousand years ago. So obviously the choice was not to the advantage of my own nation. I decided to defect, and to entirely disassociate myself from the brutal regime.”

This was the work of one of the HUNDREDS of Soviet spies working inside Indian Government machinery.

And the final nail in coffin.

Back in the late 70’s there was a huge scandal that ruffled some feathers. It was regarding history textbooks of NCERT containing questionable material such as ‘Brahmins eating beef’ written by Romila Thapar.

When you punch in the name ‘Jawaharlal Nehru University’ into the search engine of Wikileaks, hundreds of emails pop up! Thats when you realize the highly disproportionate amount of foreign policy advisers and politicians are from JNU. I dare people do look into it!

Above! Disgraced Romila Thapar goes begging to West to pressurize the government. Does India belong to one billion Indians or few intellectuals sitting on their high horses.

The Communist Party of India was MN Roy and Abinath Mukherjee by the blessing of Lenin in USSR. Abhinath was shot dead in the great purge in USSR under the rule of Stalin

Do we dare connect all the dots?

So many of the current writers of NCERT are from JNU. People who are writing our textbooks can be found protesting with the likes of Shhla Rashid, Kahaniya Kumar

The death tolls: Communists top with a bang!

If communists are writing the history textbooks of our nation no wonder the youth is misguided into becoming communists and Urban Naxals. We are not taught the deadly communist history which has led to the death of around 100 million people, close to twenty times what Nazism has said to have killed.

India has hundreds of good universities! Why is JNU given such preference? What is the agenda? Are rest of the universities useless? Who will provide the answers? These are the answers the nation actually wants to know!
