“Most Indians are so politically illiterate that they do not know their real enemy. It is the Indian State. It is not the Kashmiri people, not even the Pakistani state. Indian citizens who know what is what and which is which know they have a lot more to fear from the Indian State’s legal monopoly over violence, than from the Pakistani state and Islamist terrorism — mostly a manufactured ‘threat’ in the South Asian context so far. The ‘patriots’ of India, especially those who earn a salary for their ‘patriotism’, are enemies of all the peoples in the subcontinent. They are essentially mercenaries of the world imperialist order, and defenders of the pimps of subcontinental natural resources and labour.”

–Indian activist Satyadeep Satya
