A Naxal or Naxalite is a member of any political organisation that claims the legacy of the Communist Party of India, founded in Calcutta in 1969. The Communist Party of India is the largest existing political group in that lineage today in India; the term Naxal derives from the name of the village Naxalbari in West Bengal, where the Naxalite peasant revolt took place in 1967. Naxalites are considered far-left radical communists, supportive of Mao Zedong's political ideology, their origin can be traced to the split in 1967 of the Communist Party of India following the Naxalbari peasant uprising, leading to the formation of the Communist Party of India two years later. The movement had its epicentre in West Bengal. In years, it spread to less developed areas of rural southern and eastern India, such as Chhattisgarh, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana through the activities of underground groups like the Communist Party of India; some Naxalite groups have become legal organisations participating in parliamentary elections, such as the Communist Party of India Liberation and the Communist Party of India Janashakti.

As of April 2018, the areas where Naxalites are most visible are: Andhra Pradesh: Visakhapatnam Bihar: Gaya, Lakhisarai Chhattisgarh: Bastar, Dantewada, Kondagaon, Rajnandgaon, Sukma Jharkhand: Bokaro, Garhwa, Gumla, Khunti, Lohardaga, Ranchi, Simdega West, Singhbhum Maharashtra: Gadchiroli, Yavatmal Odisha: Koraput, Malkangiri Telangana: Bhadradri, Kothagudem The term Naxalites comes from Naxalbari, a small village in West Bengal, where a section of the Communist Party of India led by Charu Majumdar, Kanu Sanyal, Jangal Santhal initiated an uprising in 1967. However, the uprising itself formed after two decades of minor communist activity which first began in South India. In current-day Telangana, an Indian state which split from the larger Andhra Pradesh, communist mentality began to manifest, in July of 1948, a major event known as the Telangana Struggle occurred in which the lower-classes of 2,500 villages of the former Hyderabad State formed a series of communes. Furthermore, in same year, far-leftist mentality was solidified within the government structure by the publication of two major communist documents..

The first, the Andhra Thesis, expressed "that'Indian revolution' follow the Chinese path of protracted people's war" and how the "Indian revolution" must be similar to the Chinese people's war, in which the entirety of the population from the rural and agrarian areas of the nation should participate in conflict. The second document would be the Andhra Letter, published in June of 1948, the letter spoke of how Mao Zedong's concept of New Democracy should be implemented in an Indian revolution. In terms of communists in the young nation, the Communist Party of India formed in 1920 had internal conflict because the CPI had support from the Soviets, by 1964, the Communist Part of India was established. From the Telangana Struggle and the two political manifestos, the Naxalites were not the first instance of communist activity in the newly-formed country. On 18 May 1967, the Siliguri Kishan Sabha, of which Jangal was the president, declared their support for the movement initiated by Kanu Sanyal, their readiness to adopt armed struggle to redistribute land to the landless.

The following week, a sharecropper near Naxalbari village was attacked by the landlord's men over a land dispute. On 24 May, when a police team arrived to arrest the peasant leaders, it was ambushed by a group of tribals led by Jangal Santhal, a police inspector was killed in a hail of arrows; this event encouraged many Santhal tribals and other poor people to join the movement and to start attacking local landlords. These conflicts go back to the failure to implement the 5th and 6th Schedules of the Constitution of India. In theory these Schedules provide for a limited form of tribal autonomy with regard to exploiting natural resources on their lands, e.g. pharmaceutical and mining, and'land ceiling laws', limiting the land to be possessed by landlords and distribution of excess land to landless farmers and labourers. Mao Zedong provided ideological leadership for the Naxalbari movement, advocating that Indian peasants and lower class tribals overthrow the government of the upper classes by force.

From 1965-1966, the Communist Party of India had a major figure by the name of Charu Majumdar, he was a major figure of the movement who believed in Zedong's "protracted people's war" ideology. A large number of urban elites were attracted to the ideology, which spread through Charu Majumdar's writings the'Historic Eight Documents' which formed the basis of Naxalite ideology; these documents were essays formed from the opinions of communist leaders and theorists such as Mao Zedong, Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin. Using People's courts, similar to those established by Mao, Naxalites try opponents and execute with axes or knives, beat, or permanently exile them. At the time, the leaders of this revolt were members of the CPI, which joined a coalition government in West Bengal just a few months back. However, this plan of action led to dispute within the party as Charu Majumdar believed the CPM was to support a doctrine based on revolution similar to that of the People's Republic of China. Leaders like land minister Hare Krishna Konar had been until "trumpeting revolutionary rhetoric, suggesting that militant confiscation of land was integral to the party's programme."

However, now that they were in power, CPI did not approve of the armed uprising, all the leaders and a number of Calc
