The Hindu outfits in Orissa have alleged that there are alleged links between the NGOs run by Christian organizations and the Maoists. The reports suggest that foreign funds received by the NGOs are being transferred to the Maoists, who in return play a crucial role in the communal divide in Kandhamal district.
The Orissa government has taken the allegations seriously and decided to inquire into it. According to police sources, one of the people involved in the attack on Hindu colony in Brahmanigaon may have been a Maoist. Circumstantial evidences suggest that Maoists were behind the retaliatory attack by Christians. Truth will come out once the investigations are carried out.
