Green, Not Red

Green, Not Red

Author: Anamika Prasad
Publication: The Times of India
Date: March 11, 2006

This has reference to the letter by CPI (ML) general secretary Kanu Sanyal (March 6). If Comrade Sanyal believes that "the patriotic forces who came out in large numbers to protest George Bush's visit" were demonstrating against the nuclear deal and "American imperialism", he is deluding himself. The mobs that gathered on the streets that day, at least in Mumbai, were Muslims who had been mobilised by their religious leaders to protest a plethora of issues from the US bombing of Iraq and Afghanistan to the anti-Prophet cartoons in a Danish newspaper. In Mumbai they spun out of control and vandalised public property, smashed windows and smiled and waved for the television cameras. The predominant colour that day was green, not red, whatever the communists might like to believe.
