(India) – The mysterious death of a true patriot, Rajiv Dixit, was followed by no investigation or postmortem report. Cardiac arrest or slow poisoning? The questions remain. Rajiv Dixit was a social activist and an Indian Nationalist who passed away at the age of 43.
He spoke on matters such as the evils of globalization, liberalization and privatization and equated them to modern-day colonialism. He was a leader of the Swadeshi Movement and Azadi Bachao Andolan and advocated decentralization of taxes, because according to him, 80% of taxes were being used to feed the politicians and bureaucrats and just 20% for development purposes for the people. He also advocated farmers’ rights.
He maintained very controversial opinions on subjects such as the attacks on the Twin Towers in New York in 2001 and how India’s independence was gained in a different manor than what is written in the history books. Unfortunately for him, due to his relentless crusade against the powers that be, including governments and MNCs, he had made many enemies. He died due to apparent cardiac arrest, while in Bhilai, Chhattisgarh, on the way to deliver a lecture as a part of his Bharat Swabhiman Yatra. However, no post-mortem was done after his death. His body was blue-black in colour when he had died, indicative of poisoning. Even the entire media was silent on his death and none reported it. To date, we do not know what exactly happened.
