ICHR – the politicization started with the Congress, Communists and Mohammedans and continues!

ICHR – the politicization started with the Congress, Communists and Mohammedans and continues!

ICH politics 2019

The Politicization of ICHR and Savarkar: The politicization of ICHR has been started by historians themselves since early 1960s with the connivance of the Marxists and Mohammedans. This has been blatantly revealed through their manipulation of the proceedings of the ICHR itself. The proceedings of the IHC, particularly, the business session exposed many times, how the so-called great historians have been more unruly than the politicians in shouting and even ready to fight. Even in the recent Savarkar issue, they get exposed. Days after the Rajasthan Congress government removed “veer” from references to VD Savarkar from its textbooks, Rajasthan University has now declined a request from the Indian Council for Historical Research, an autonomous academic body funded by the Government of India, to have a seminar on the Hindutva figurehead[1]. The event, part of a multi-city talk series planned by the ICHR, backed by the history-rewriting wing of the RSS affiliate, Akhil Bharatiya Itihas Sankalan Yojana, “The truth about Savarkar” was launched, on the occasion of National Education Day, commemorated every year on India’s first education minister Maulana Abul Kalam Azad’s birthday[2]. The talk series will mainly focus on “confronting lies about Savarkar and his writings on the 1857 war of independence”, ICHR officials said.

Indira Gandhi fecognized Savarkar

Rajasthan University versus ICHR for conducting a seminar on Savarkar [November 2019]: Rajasthan university officials confirmed to ET that they had “declined” the request for space for the seminar as “certain aspects of Savarkar were deeply controversial”. The other seminars of ICHR on Savarkar were to be held in Jaipur, Guwahati, Port Blair, Pune and some other cities. “We had sought space and permission from the Rajasthan University to hold a talk series on Savarkar in their campus but they got back saying we could choose any other topic,” an ICHR functionary told ET. Pramila Poonia, head of the department of history and culture, Rajasthan University, told ET that they had not agreed when ICHR had presented them the proposal on hosting a seminar on Savarkar. “We didn’t refuse entirely but we asked them for time for a month, and more details because we need to consult others on this. There are aspects of Savarkar that are controversial and we did not want any problem.”

Mahathma Gandhi fecognized Savarkar
Historians biased on Savarkar: Recently, during the Maharashtra campaign, BJP had promised a Bharat Ratna for Savarkar that had led to a lot of debate. Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot had specifically criticised this, and had called the BJP “a party with a fascist ideology” with no regard for anyone’s sentiment. Balmukund Pandey of the ABISY, who looks after the Sangh Parivar’s “rewriting history from the Indian perspective”, project told ET that it is high time “the country got to know about the sacrifices made by Savarkar and his brothers”. “His ideas are important for the country to be on the right track.” At the ICHR, four research professors talked about ways to “confront the character assassination” of Savarkar, particularly about his mercy petitions to the British, which they said, “was typical of the language used by many leaders then”. “He was a trained legal mind who was aware of his rights, and he ended it every time saying if not him, at least his companions should be released”, Raghuvendra Tanwar, professor, Kurukshetra University, told the audience, adding the conspiracy to keep Savarkar out of mainstream politics was designed by the British because, he, unlike Swami Vivekananda or Lok Manya Tilak looked at the political revival of Hindutva. “He was the first leader who brought out the truth about the independence struggle of 1857 on a global platform with his book in 1909. For him, the essentials of Hindutva were the essentials of nationalism. We must never forget that Bhagat Singh had a lot of respect for him and was instrumental in getting his book published in Lahore.”

How leadrers perceive recognize Savarkar
The left and Savarkar: Another speaker Himanshu Rai, who is a researcher at the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library, took on the writings of authors Tanika Sarkar, Shamshul Islam and AG Noorani, on Savarkar calling them “divisive”. “The left always had a problem with him, because even in jail he started the process of Shuddhi, of encouraging prisoners not to convert…” Rizwan Qaiser, professor, department of history, Jamia Millia Islamia, said it was inappropriate of the ICHR to honour Savarkar on Maulana Abul Kalam Azad’s birthday. “Azad was always very critical of the Sangh Parivar’s divisive politics and in 1952, in Rampur, he openly blamed them for driving the Muslims to the corner which led to the partition. Savarkar’s writings have always been exclusionary of the Muslims. Even his book on 1857 represents the struggle as a pan-India uprising which it was not. Some facts cannot be changed.”

Veer Savarkar and Hindutwa

Modi and Shah filling ICHR “historian with little or no professional standing” [December 2019]: Most importantly, they [Modi and Shah] have deployed their newfound and growing power with an alarming clarity of vision. To that end, they have appointed individuals with dubious intellectual qualifications to key governmental institutions with the explicit goal of promoting and disseminating a radical Hindu ideology[3]. For example, the government, even during its first term, chose a historian with little or no professional standing, to head the apex Indian Council of Historical Research. Since the council is responsible for directing the content of history textbooks, this appointment was fraught with significance[4]. Can columnist write in this way, as if she knows everything about ICHR and what has been going on since 1960s?

ICHR dissolved committee

When government changes, all the departments and institutions, rearranged: As the political parties have been ruling, it is quite natural that their appointees occupy positions in every department, institution, courts and other places. ICHR has been thus dominated by the Communists and Mohammedans of all sorts, whereas, the paper says, that “the Indian Council for Historical Research (ICHR) has disbanded the advisory committee of its journal comprising 21 eminent historians from around the world”, including Romila Thapar and Irfan Habib[5]. The council’s member-secretary Gopinath Ravindran opposed the decision taken during a meeting of the journal’s editorial board held this week, people familiar with the matter told ET[6]. That means it is only between him and the paper. The decision to “disband the committee” is among the first taken by the country’s top historical research body after it was reconstituted by the NDA government in January, 2015. Yes, as UPA did and earlier Congress did. The Indian Historical Review is the refereed journal of the ICHR that has been publishing research work in history since 1974. It is one of the few Indian journals found on the prestigious Thomson Reuters list. The panel was disbanded in a meeting of the journal’s editorial board, headed by ICHR Chairman Y Sudershan Rao, on Tuesday, May 15, 2015.

Romila thapar versus YS Rao
Advisory Committee and all are just ornamental and they do not do any work – a known fact [2015]: The membership of the new advisory committee is now limited to the 18 historians on ICHR’s governing body. The advisory committee included Satish Chandra, Muzaffar Alam from the University of Chicago, Richard M Eaton of the University of Arizona, BR Tomlinson from London’s School of Oriental and African Studies and JS Grewal, former vice-chancellor of Guru Nanak Dev University in Amritsar. Although the advisory members are not actively involved in producing the biannual journal, they help in reviewing articles that appear in it. “A panel of eminent historians lends lustre to the journal. It adds to its credibility,” said Professor BP Sahu of Delhi University, a former ICHR member. Ravindran, who also serves as the managing editor of IHR, opposed the decision on the grounds that it wasn’t backed by any “academic logic”, one of the persons cited earlier said. Ravindran, a professor of history at Jamia Millia Islamia in New Delhi, who was appointed as ICHR’s member secretary under the previous UPA II government, declined to comment on the matter. Rao, however, defended the decision saying the appointment of the advisory panel for IHR is purely the prerogative of the journal’s editorial board. “There is nothing unusual or wrong about this,” he said.

ICHR the leftist monopoly
Professor Dilip Chakrabarti of Cambridge University is the new chief editor of the journal: Thapar told ET that Romila Thapar had received no official communication about her removal from IHR’s advisory panel. Asked if she was surprised by the news of her removal, she said, “Not really. One can see from the membership of the new council which direction they are heading into.” Reacting to the decision to limit the panel’s membership to just ICHR members, she said, “The whole point of the advisory board is that you can search far and wide for people who have expertise in various subjects. If you limit the membership of the advisory board to just members of the ICHR, you are, in a sense, annulling the purpose of the advisory board, which is to get as wide an opinion as possible on what to put into the journal.” This development comes close on the heels of historian Sabyasachi Bhattacharya’s resignation from the post of chief editor of the journal last month. Although Bhattacharya gave no official reason for quitting, media reports suggested he was unhappy with the “direction” the ICHR is taking. Professor Dilip Chakrabarti of Cambridge University is the new chief editor of the journal. What is the problem for Romila Thapar or Irfan Habib? Do they expect that they should e there forever!

ICHR the leftist monopoly-dominance

Left versus Right: If the left now feels that they are getting less postings, it is natural because, they have been enjoying government postings, grants and all other facilities since 1960s. As they have monopolized ICHR, ICCSR, UGC etc., now they feel so. It is also corruption and sickness of their highly intellectual minds to insist and persist that they should continue. There is no meaning in accusing BJP or RSS, as they have been working with their outfits that have been dominating since 1960s. The regulars of IHC and ICCSR conferences and seminars have noted the fact. How the grants for publication and foreign travel were distributed among themselves also consciously noted. Now perhaps, their share would get reduced and that is why they start crying and shouting. Had they been real historians, they would be contended and quite without raising noise and crating controversies getting exposed in this way. When all are retiring, these people should also retire, as they have become senile.

Whether the complaint made against Lazarus, FIR filed etc., have been stage-managed or really meant for persecuting the rabble riser evangelist who abused and even blasphemed!

November 23, 2019

Whether the complaint made against Lazarus, FIR filed etc., have been stage-managed or really meant for persecuting the rabble riser evangelist who abused and even blasphemed!

Lazarus calling temple as a place of satan The Hindu

Complaint registered based on video circulated in the Social media: Mohan C. Lazarus has been notorious for making anti-Hindu comments during his evangelization discourses. Though, he reportedly makes such tirade in his church, the videos have been in circulation. Evidently, he has contacts with the politicians, as he used to claim and declare that so and so has been Christian, or become Christians, soon he would declare so in the public. About Vaiko, he made such comments. In the same tone and tenor, he was seen declaring that the Hindu gods are satan and so on. Thus, the Hindus, after watching the videos started registering their protest and urging to take legal action against such rabble-rouser. According, the Hindu organizations have lodged complaints with police stations. The case was registered after a video of Mohan preaching went viral on social media[1]. In the video, Mohan, while referring to temples in South India, says[2], “Tamil Nadu has the most number of temples in India. These temples are in the grasp of Satan. The temples in Kumbakonam district are the habitat of devils.”

Lazarus petion filed dismissed- Indian Express

High Court ordered for providing details about the speech made, the place, date etc: The Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court on Tuesday 10-10-2018, directed the Nagercoil police not to file a charge sheet against evangelist Mohan C. Lazarus until further orders after it was established that the FIR registered against him for his remarks against Hindu gods carried no particulars of place, time or date of the alleged occurrence[3]. Justice N. Anand Venkatesh, hearing the plea of Mohan Lazarus, who sought to quash the complaint filed against him, questioned if a case could be booked under Section 295A of the Indian Penal Code (deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings) after it was alleged that the speech was made in a closed event[4]. The court sought an explanation to ascertain the facts of the event. Immediately, the police and the applicants should have submitted the details to the court, but, obviously, they did not do that. So actually, one cannot divine who helped him or gave room for such lacuna, so that the petitions could be quashed easily.

G K Ilanthiraiyan dismissed the petition against Mohan Lazarus

The media played hype role, instead of pointing out the lacuna: However, the media had been gleefully carried on the news that more complaints were made against the evangelist and so on. The action was taken against him based on three separate complaints lodged against him with three different police stations[5]. In the first instance, BJP functionary R Jaihind Murugesan, 43, of Uthupalayam near Arasur, lodged a complaint against the preacher with the Sulur police[6]. Based on the complaint, Sulur police inspector Thangaraj registered a first information report (FIR) against Mohan C Lazarus under Sections 153 (A) (1) (a) (b) and 295 (A) of the Indian Penal Code[7]. Likewise, the Karumathampatti police registered a case against the Christian preacher under Sections 153 (A) and 295 (A) of the Indian Penal Code based on a complaint lodged by another BJP functionary, whose identity couldn’t be ascertained[8]. In another instance, VHP district deputy secretary R Manoshankar, 35, of Pollachi, lodged a complaint against Mohan Lazarus with the Pollachi west police, who registered a case[9]. Further investigation is on[10].

Lazarus - Judge Anand Venkatesh

How the court gave hint that the speech made in public should be taken cognizance and so on: Justice N Anand Venkatesh[11], while hearing the petition filed by Lazarus seeking to quash the FIR registered based on a complaint by Hindu Munnani functionary Namburajan, observed that, “Any complaint must have certain preliminary requirements to make out an offence. However, the complaint, in this case, does not satisfy the requirements to attract section 295 (A) of IPC (deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious beliefs).” He stated that in order to make out a cognizable offence under the above IPC section, the statement should have been made in a public meeting[12]. If the said statement had been uttered in a closed gathering in the nature of a private meeting, it cannot be cited as a cognizable offence under the above section, as the same would imply that no two persons can freely express their ideas or sentiments to each other in fear that they may be punished if it gets published in social media, the judge added. Criticising the Kottar police for filing FIR on a complaint that lacks the most important details as to where, when and on what occasion the alleged statement had been made, the judge directed the police to explain on what basis the FIR was registered by them.

Difference among the IPC sections

Details of IPC Sections 153A, 295 & 295A SECTION 153 A: The purpose of the Section 153 A is to punish persons who indulge in wanton vilification or attacks upon the religion, race, place of birth, residence, language etc of any particular group or class or upon the founders and prophets of a religion. The jurisdiction of this Section is widened so as to make promotion of disharmony, enmity or feelings of hatred or ill-will between different religious, racial, language or regional groups or castes or communities punishable. Offence on moral turpitude is also covered in this section. The offence is a cognizable offence and the punishment for the same may extend to three years, or with fine, or with both. However, the punishment of the offence committed in a place of worship is enhanced up to five years and fine.

Ingredients of Section 153A:

  • The act of promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, caste, community or any other group.
  • Acts prejudicial to the maintenance of harmony between different groups or castes or communities, if the acts disturb public tranquillity.
  • Acts causing fear or alarm or a feeling of insecurity among members of any religious, racial, language or regional group or caste or community by use of criminal force or violence against them.

IPC and cyberlaw, Defamation law, effects

SECTION 295: Section 295 of the I.P.C makes destruction, damage, or defilement of a place of worship or an object held sacred, with intent to insult the religion of a class of persons, punishable with imprisonment which may extend to two years, or with fine , or with both. This section has been enacted to compel people to respect the religious susceptibilities of persons of different religious persuasion or creeds.

Ingredients of Section 295:

  • The accused must do such an act with the intention of insulting the religion of any person, or with the knowledge that any class of person is likely to consider such destruction, damage or defilement as an insult to their religion.
  • The accused must destroy, damage or defile any place of worship or any object which is held as sacred by any class of persons.

 SECTION 295-A: The object of Section 295-A is to punish deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage the religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or the religious beliefs. This section only punishes an aggravated form of insult to religion when it is perpetrated with deliberate and malicious intention of outraging the religious feelings of a class.

Ingredients of Section 295-A:

  • The accused must insult or attempt to insult the religion or religious beliefs of any class of citizens of India.
  • The said insult must be with a deliberate and malicious intention of outraging the religious feelings of the said class of citizens.
  • The said insult must be by words, either spoken or written, by signs or by visible representation or otherwise.
  • The offence under Section 295-A is cognizable and a non-bailable and non-compoundable offence.
  • The police have a power under to arrest a person charged under Section 295-A without a warrant.

However, the police did not arrest him.

IPC and cyberlaw

Lazarus gave a clarification that he made such speech in a pastors conference in 2014: Lazarus, in his petition, said the case of the prosecution was that he had spoken against Hindu gods and referred to them as Satan. He claimed that he did not intend to hurt anyone and the complaint was based on a speech delivered in 2014 at a pastors’ meet in Chennai, which was a closed event. Therefore, how and why the rel hate-speech made in 2014 in Chennai was not noticed and suddenly, it was circulated in 2019 is not known. As it was a private and closed event, as claimed and submitted before the court, how the video suddenly came out in 2014. The source could have been known to him or the persons involved in taking video or the church. As without which, it could not have been made available in Cyberspace. So if at all, anybody wanted to create trouble between two communities, it was the person who uploaded the video first in the internet. Even if it was done for publicity, then, Lazarus is responsible. Thus, instead of investigating in that way, the complaint made, FIR registered etc., were done mechanically, without application of mind or understand the legal provisions.

Lazarus petion filed dismissed- The Hindu

The petition has been dismissed with the provision of appeal: The Nagercoil police had booked him based on a complaint filed by Nambirajan of the Hindu Munnani under Section 153A (promoting enmity between different groups) and Section 295A of the IPC. Hearing in the case has been adjourned to October 24, 2018. Lazarus filed a petition explaining his stand and requesting to quash the FIR and further proceedings[13]. Accordingly, Judge G. K. Ilanthiraiyan allowed the petition filed by him and quashed the FIR filed by the Nagerkoil police[14]. The police has to file the closure of complaint to the applicant and the applicant, if has any grievance, he could approach appropriate court for getting redressal. Earlier, Lazarus also explained his position through a video uploaded as a clarification against the accusations made against him[15]. The whole affair exposed as to how the Hindutw forces have badly handled the case and cut a sorrow figure before the public, in spite of having contingent of lawyers and advocates.

How the multi-talented Andreas Maria Jeremiah, who wanted to become a psychiatrist, has undergone couselling and treatment!

October 21, 2019

How the multi-talented Andreas Maria Jeremiah, who wanted to become a psychiatrist, has undergone couselling and treatment!

Andrea Maria Jeremiah-5

Andrea Maria Jeremiah, an Anglo-Indian wanted to become a psychiatrist: Jeremiah was born in an Anglo-Indian Roman Catholic Christian family in Arakkonam, Tamil Nadu, then moved to Chennai. Her father is a lawyer at the High Court in Chennai. She has one younger sister who lives and works at Leuven, Belgium as a research assistant. Jeremiah was raised near Chennai and went to National Public School and graduated from Women’s Christian College. She has said that she was quite a geek and wanted to be a psychiatrist until she completed her 12th board exams[1]. Really, interesting that a modern girl wanted to become so. Of course, in RC families, many males read psychology and related courses to become a pastor or RC priests go for such courses, as they get involved in confession, couselling, and such other psychotherathic indulgences.

Andrea Maria Jeremiah-2

Musical prodigy:  Jeremiah learned classical piano when she was eight. At age 10, she was a part of a Jackson Five-style troupe called Young Stars which formed the base of her early singing and music composing career. She was also a theatre artist in her college and appeared in several stage plays organised by The Madras Players and EVAM. She was the President of the Student Senate at Women’s Christian College. She also organised a company, The Show Must Go On (TSMGO Productions), to promote live art and artistes. Jeremiah said that as a college student, she turned down every film offer she got as she had no intention of becoming a film actor. Yet, she has become an actress, of course, now with some affairs.

Andrea Maria Jeremiah

Within 20 years, she became very popular: Andrea Jeremiah (born 21 December 1985) is an Indian actress, playback singer, musician and dancer, thus, becoming multi-talented and versatile personality. She works predominantly in the Tamil and Malayalam film industries she also appeared in Telugu Films. She began her career as a playback singer, and has subsequently appeared in films. Andrea Jeremiah, who made her acting debut with Girish Karnad’s theatre production Nagamandala, is one of the most talented actresses in the Tamil and  Malayalam film industries[2]. She is not only one of the most sought after singers in Tamil cinema and independent music but has also proved her mettle as an actress in recent years garnering critical acclaim. Thankfully she is back with a bang and would be participating Isaipuyal A.R. Rahman’s live concert in Chennai and sing songs.

Andrea Maria Jeremiah-4

Who wanted to become a psychiatrist became depressed: Singer-actress Andrea Jeremiah was last seen playing one of the lead roles in Vetri Maaran’s Vada Chennai and won laurels for her performance[3]. However, the actress has been missing in action since then. In a recent interaction, she revealed that she was diagnosed with acute depression and had to recover before getting back to work[4]. However, the actress is back in the news after revealing the reason behind her health condition[5]. Recently, the actress was in Bengaluru to release her collection of poems, Broken Wing. According to a report published in Indiaglitz, the actress revealed that she was in a relationship with a married man[6]. After reading her poems to a group of people in Bengaluru, many pointed out that her writing is melancholic and asked the reason behind her pain. Andrea said that her then partner had abused her physically and mentally[7]. She was diagnosed with acute depression. To recover from it, she enrolled herself in an Ayurveda detox program and took a break from work[8]. She also took to Instagram to share the cover of Broken Wing and said that it took a lot of courage to share something personal through her poems[9]. When asked by the reporter about the actor, who is responsible, she hinted that she has mentioned the whole affair in her book and she would tell about him soon. Meanwhile, vernacular media comes out with details that she has started receiving threats. Probably, from the person, the actor, who harassed her[10].

Andrea Maria Jeremiah-3 with Aniruddh

The degrading position of actresses in society: Generally, people may not be interested in knowing the personal affairs of the actresses, as they used to say so many things for publicity. Moreover, they have lost credibility in society, when actresses advocating, supporting and justifying prostitution and so on. The Kushboo’s assertion that one cannot expect all women with chastity and such other factors made general people annoyed. Here, the case of Andrea Jeremiah has been different, as she has been modern, sophisticated and highly capable of handling her affairs. Yet, she has been affected by an actor, who has already been married shows that she has also some weakness. Anyway, the public may not research into where she fell and recovered, the media has been filled with stories and she has also fed them with the material. However, as the Tamilnadu society has been seriously affected by sex crimes and they have been increasing day by day, these types of cine-affairs might influence and affect. Ironically, now, Kamal Hassan has become a politician and started advising.

Andrea Maria Jeremiah-7

The youngsters have to be careful: Whether the issue has to be approached psychologically, socially, professionally or otherwise has to be decided accordingly. In the cine-world, if these types of affairs have been common, as Kamal Hassan has been the example, the public cannot do anything. If they try to impose these affairs on the public as role-model standard etc., then, definitely, they oppose. If this is taken up for a counseling or psychological case, then the professional shole take up and deal accordingly. If the stories are to be circulated or handled legally like Kamal Hassan or Kushboo, then, the public also watches with fun. But, as for as Indian society is concerned and the youngster, who imitate and emulate them, they have to be careful. The media [including cellphones aiding and abetting], as a whole, tries to enslave the society ad members. Just like “Corporate Social Responsibility,” these guys also should have some ethics, as they have been responsible for spoiling the society and the increase in crimes. Days are gone, where morality and values are resected.

EVR’s atheism, Deivanayagam’s petition, Veramani’s counter and the Judgment!

September 8, 2019

EVR’s atheism, Deivanayagam’s petition, Veramani’s counter and the Judgment!

WP 2017 filed by Deivanayagam

2017 petition heard and decided in 2019: That the petition W.P. No.28021/2017 was heard two years later and the judges to deliver judgment on 04-09-2019 has been intriguing. None reacted to the judgment or protested to remove any paragraphs from the judgment arguing that they offend their belief or so.  Perhaps, most of them are not interested at all. The duo Rajiv Malhothra and Aravinda Neelakantan[1] made much fuss about their favorite duo Deivanayagam and Devakala[2] also keeping quite! Though from 2014 onward, many Hindutwa advocates, lawyers and legal experts have been out, it appears that they do not bother such cases. Of course, they might write in their own websites and journals, read by hundred or two hundred, applause and enjoy time otherwise.

Duo vs duo

Thanthai Periyar, had advocated both atheism and self respect[3]: Emphasizing the right to propagate views questioning existence of God, the Madras High Court recently dismissed a Public Interest Litigation which sought to remove atheistic inscriptions below the statues of Thanthai Periyar in Tamil Nadu[4]. The bench comprising Justice S. Manikumar and Justice Subramonium Prasad observed that followers of Thanthai Periyar, in exercise of the rights under Article 19 of the Constitution of India, has a right to disagree with the existence of God.

There is no God, no God, no god,
Those who preached God is fool
Those who spread God Rogue
Those who pray God are Barbarians

These inscriptions below the statue of Thanthai Periyar erected all over the State of Tamil Nadu, offended Dr.M.Deivanayagam[5] who filed a PIL seeking to remove them on the ground that it is an offensive language, and against the ‘Universal God’. According to Dr. Deivanayagam, Periyar had always advocated self-respect and not atheism. He further contended that Periyar had not uttered such words offending people[6]. He contended that during his lifetime, Periyar had never uttered these words, inscribed below the statues, and it was the Dravidar Kazhagam, led by its president K. Veeramani, that had inscribed these lines[7]. A division bench of Justice S. Manikumar and Justice Subramonium Prasad said it was of the view that it was an undisputed fact that Periyar, in all his speeches and publications, from 1928, had declared that[8] “there is no God, God doesn’t exist, one who has created God is a fool”. “The propogation of the philosophy of self respect, social reform, ending caste system, equal rights and Periyar’s vision to establish a society of brotherhood can be deciphered, and according to him, the belief in God was the sole reason for the inequalities in society[9]. Speeches and expression, extracted supra, from 1928, makes it clear without an iota of hesitation that it was Periyar’s philosophy and ideology that became a self respect movement and later on, a party,” the bench said.

Atheism case, the so-called words

Periyar had declared that there is no god, God doesn’t exist, One who has created is a fool: Justice Manikumar, in his judgment, made many references to writing and speeches of Periyar and concluded that he had, in all his speeches, publications, from 1928, had declared that there is no god, God doesn’t exist, One who has created is a fool[10]. The court also observed that, people recognize Periyar as a non believer of God and the one who fought for social justice and self respect. The court said[11]: “Propagation of philosophy of self respect, social reform, ending caste system, equal rights, and Thanthai Periyar’s vision to establish a society of brotherhood could be deciphered, and according to Thanthai Periyar, belief of God, was the sole reason for the inequalities in the society. Speeches and expression, extracted supra, from 1928 and enclosed in the typed set of papers makes it clear, without any iota of hesitation, one can clearly come to the conclusion that it is Thanthai Periyar’s philosophy and ideology, which became a self respect movement and later on, a party”.

Ezra, Veeramani, Deivanayagam, Seeman together

Followers of Periyar Has Right To Propagate His Atheistic Views: The court further observed Dravidar Kazhagam Party, has every right under the Constitution of India, to fight for social justice in eradicating inequality, right for upliftment of women and downridden people, express views on religion and existence of God[12]. It further observed that divergent views on philosophy should be allowed to be expressed, and that there cannot be a prevention of freedom of expression, with permanent interest of human progress[13]. It said: “The petitioner has a constitutional right under Article 19 of the Constitution of India, to express his views on religion and existence of God, in the light of the decision of the Hon’ble Supreme Court in Lalai Singh Yadav’s case, we are of the view that the 2nd respondent and the members of the party, or followers of Thanthai Periyar, in exercise of the rights under Article 19 of the Constitution of India, has a right to disagree with the same.”

How Cristians and theist dupe Hindua 04-09-2019 judgment

Who is Deivanayagam, the Petitioner of the case?: M. Deivanayagam has been a Christian, completed M. A. Tamil fom Madras Christian College, working as a lecturer in Loyola College, done a Ph.D from the chair created by the former Archbishop R. Arulappa, that was reportedly affiliated to the University of Madras. With the publication of his controversial book, “Viviliyam Tirukkural Saiva Siddhantam,” he go some publicity. However, Rajiv Malhothra of Infinity Foundation had given undue publicity through his book, “Breaking India.” Though he never saw and met Deivanayagam he engaged certain people to get information about Deivanayagam. That is why, the information the Rajiv Malhothra group got has been confused and given full credit to Deivanayagam and her daughter Devakala. Aravinda Neelakantan, evidently collaborated for such “Deivanayagam research” making him famous, popular rather than notorious hitherto. Some persons of Hindutva groups have worked as conduits for the information exchange between Deivanayagam and Hindutwa groups. Thus, in 2017, Deivanayagam got this fantastic idea of “Universal God” and filed a writ petition.

Deivanayagam claimed ER was not an atheist

What Deivanayagam claimed in his petition: Based on the petition filed, the following points are listed:

  1. The Parliament of World Religions was held between 15th and 19th of October 2015 at Salt lake city, USA. On behalf of our trust [“Trust for the Unification of World Religions through Soulology of the Tamils”], we rented two booths to establish the existence of the Universal God on the basis of the Soulology of the Tamils and all the questions raised by the religious scholars had been answered rationally.
  2. On the basis of the invitation of the Vice Chancellor of Madras University. We have established the existence of Universal God in a rational way on 2nd January 2016.
  3. The President of Dravidar Kazhagam have advertised that, those who prove the existence of God will get a reward of 1 crore rupees and those who prove Pilliyar eats Kozhukattai will get a reward of 2 crore rupees and specifically they have to prove in the premises of Periyar Thidal. Accepting his challenge, we wrote letters to K.Veeramani. We wrote articles explaining a reply to his challenge and published in our magazines. After reading this, due to the fear of losing his challenge, he has hidden himself in his own premises at the specified time. The complete details are published in our Tamizhar Samayam magazine. We are always ready to prove the above challenge at any time.”

WP 2017 f-what veeramani said about deivanayagam

What K. Veeramani frecorded about M. Deivanayagam in his counter: What K. Veeramani recorded abot M. Deivanayagam:

  1. It is the further contention of the 2nd respondent [Deivanayagam] that the petitioner used to spend time, in the premises of 2nd respondent’s party [K. Veeramani] under the guise of an atheist and non believer of God.
  2. It is their further contention that after some time, the petitioner has started preaching that in the world, that there are two religions, one is Saivait and the other is Vaishnavait and Gods are Shiva and Vishnu respectively.
  3. The second respondent has further stated that the petitioner is having an organization called “அனைத்து தன்மான தமிழர்களது கூட்டமைப்பு”. Using this organization, on one side, he preached about Periyar and on other side, tried to achieve his individual views, by using 2nd respondent’s party.
  4. As he refused to attend his meeting, he filed this petition as a revenge.

WP 2017 f-judment last parasThe judgment and its beneficiaries and of course the affected: It is not known as to where the Hindutwa lawyers, advocates and others have gone. Thus, it is very clear that both played dubious play and mischief, just to get publicity through the petition, because, hther it is head or tail, they are the winners and the opponents or the gullible attacked [who always do not know that they are attacked] and the Judges cleverly delivered the judgment giving much publicity to EVR with the English translation that occupies 60% of their judgments. Definitely, the DK, K. Veeramany and Deivanayagam have been the most benefited with the dismissed petition and the judgment.

Sex-terrorism in India – For the lure of Five-star Hotel front-office job, 600 girls stripped! Wonder that is Indian Girls!

August 26, 2019

Sex-terrorism in India – For the lure of Five-star Hotel front-office job, 600 girls stripped! Wonder that is Indian Girls!

Govt action against sexual abuse, cyber police-TOI
Clement Raj Chezhiyan: A software engineer in Chennai masquerading as an HR manager of a five-star hotel was able to entice 600 women from 16 States[1]. He was able to convince them to send their nude photos and videos in return for a job in a five-star hotel[2]. It is not known as to who told or such standards practiced in India that if a girl to get a front-office job, sh should strip or  such nude figure should be send for interview and selection. The man named Clement Raj Chezhiyan who is 33 is also known as Pradeep is an employee of a well known IT firm. He has been arrested from Chennai by the cyber branch of the police and taken to Hyderabad. Clement Raj is currently lodged in Cheralapathy jail, near Hyderabad[3]. He was produced before the court. His mobile phones and other electronic gadgets were seized. Raj is married and the couple has a seven-year-old daughter[4]. Had he never thought, what would have been the position when somebody tried with his wife and daughter?

Govt action against sexual abuse, cyber police

Feeling bore at his present job, he engaged in this nude racket: The techie Clement Raj has told the police during interrogation that he hit on this idea as he was feeling bored at his job[5]. This only proves his culpability of mind and men rea and therefore, the courts should not leave him, but take severe action against him.The accused was on a night shift and during that period he collected telephone numbers of girls all over India[6]. He contacted the girls posing as an HR manager of a five-star hotel. He offered them a job in the front office of the hotel. He also told them that the hotel was very particular about the figure of the girls who they hire. Hence they would have to send their strip-down photo to him. The girls obliged believing the man and nearly 600 of them sent him their nude photos. This is also shocking as to note how these girls could have done so. Had they been so desperate to get a job? Or they lost their morality to do so?

Clement Raj Chezhiyan arrested-600 stripped photos
Wanted the girls stripped completely: Subsequently, the accused also contacted them on WhatsApp. He told them that their job would be confirmed, in case they completely stripped down. Again, this proves his extreme culpability in treating girls and women. The modernism has made both men and women, disparage moral values and ethics. This would help the hotel management to assess their suitability for the job. However, in Hyderabad, one of the girls got suspicious and complained to the police cyber branch[7]. The police carried out an investigation and the techie was arrested from Chennai. The Times of India has reported that a woman accomplice Archana Jagdish helped him[8]. Ironical that the girls never bothered about the future, as had some one come to know about their stripping exercise to get a job.

Govt action against sexual abuse, cyber police-2

Extorted money also: The techie has now confessed that he has almost 600 photographs of nude girls stored on his laptop. The police were able to break the password of the laptop and access the photos. Further investigation is on. As per the police, sometimes this man also blackmailed the girls. That means, his intention of making money is also revealed. He may have sold the photos on the internet. Again, this is serous to note such type of business also exists in India. He appears to have made a tidy sum of money in the bargain[9]. He has collected several lacs using this modus operandi.  “Clement used to save the videos using a password. His mobile phone will be sent to a laboratory for further investigations. We will be able to get more details after detailed investigations,” said the police officer[10].

Clement Raj Chezhiyan arrested-Ananda Bazar Patrika

Hyderabad becoming Cyberabad, sexabad and crime-bad: Many people are surprised that such a thing has happened in India. Some people have opined that it is difficult to digest that a girl will strip on WhatsApp in the hope of getting a job in a hotel. Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction and there appears to be some truth in the story. The cyber branch of the police has now taken the man morbid, perverse and macabre Clement in custody. The techie has told the police that as his wife was working in the office in the daytime and he had a night shift, he was getting bored. He hit on this idea just to keep himself busy. The New Indian Express has reported that nearly 60 of the victims are from Hyderabad. Of course, a Hyderabad girl only sensed  awful and complained, so that the animal is caught.

Govt action against sexual abuse

How could girls strip and send photos for job?: The internet is flooded with pornographic material. Despite the best efforts of the government of India, it is difficult to police the net. Perhaps, the accused would have gone scot-free, in case the girl from Hyderabad had not reported to the police. Many people wonder about the sort of girls who stripped before the camera, just to land a job in a five-star hotel. This shows the prevalent culture in India where promiscuity is on the rise. A Major -General has just been dismissed for sexual harassment. India is home to the largest Film industry in the world. This lends glamour to everyday life fuelling the imagination of women, who wish to rise in life and get a job by any means.

IT girls career

IT girls, chastity and social problems: For the last three decades, many issues and problems have cropped up involving girls working in IT industry. Earlier garment and leather factories used to be the hub of sexual harassment and “industrial prostitution” for job, promotion, increment and so on. The girls, women and others whether married or not, with children or not, the co-male worker, supervisor, manager, MD and foreign visitors , local politicians and the whole gang used to prey on them to satisfy their sexual thirst. Now, such brothel-hood has reached IT industries of all sorts. Ironically, educated, highly savvy and elite categories are involved in such IT-debauchery. As cine-actresses, models and others have created a wrong precedence, the girls and young women have started thinking or made-up their minds, there is nothing wrong in such acts, as long as they help, prompt and elevate their careers. But, in society and family, there have been many issues and problems cropping up, as no husband would or could relish that his wife has already been in the bed with some other person. Of course, girl also could question the morality of her husband. However, the sufferers have been their parents and children. Thus, more and more divorces, breakage of families and parents dumped in age-old homes.  This is not way India can afford to continue and proceed. These IT guys and girls should change otherwise, let them go to US and EU to live according to their standards. Let India live peacefully.

Sex-terrorism in India: This type of sexual harassment, molestation and rape amount to “sexual terrorism,” because, with which, the spoilers have been trying to degrade, disparage and destroy Indian womanhood. This bomb planted would explode in houses, affecting society and nation. Unfortunately, these type of sex-terrorist are in ultra-modern IT industries of all sorts. It is unbelievable that if a girl send strip-photo, she would get a job at the front office of five-star hotel. Really, it is shocking to note why the 600 girls, their parents and others have been silent even after the bomb exploded. Earlier such type sexploitation and debauchery used to exist in the garment manufacturing and leather factories. But, now, its active working in IT industries has been dangerous. No clemency should be shown to this animal – Clement Raj Chezhiyan and he should he hanged, after trial and adjudication.

Madras High Court Judge amends his own Judgment after pressure from the Christian politicians, officialdom and clergy! Is India secular?

August 23, 2019

Madras High Court Judge amends his own Judgment after pressure from the Christian politicians, officialdom and clergy! Is India secular?

Judge Vidyanathan, Madras High Court

13-08-2019 – Christian institutions were highly unsafe for the future of their children: Justice S. Vaidyanathan accepts request to remove observations about Christian missionaries. The Madras High Court on Tuesday 20-08-2019, agreed to remove a contentious paragraph from one of its judgments since it was related to accusations faced by Christian missionaries of indulging in forcible religious conversions and supposed “general feeling” among parents, especially of girl children, that co-educational Christian institutions were highly unsafe for the future of their children[1]. Justice S. Vaidyanathan agreed to delete the relevant paragraph from his verdict in a case filed by a Madras Christian College (MCC) professor accused of sexually harassing girls during a study tour to Karnataka in January this year. The decision to delete was taken after the MCC counsel made a representation in open court on 20-08-2019, Tuesday and urged the court to remove the observations[2].

Para.32 of the Judgment

What the para 32 of the judgment said: The controversial paragraph read: “Before parting with the judgment, this Court feels it appropriate to point out that Christian missionaries are always on the source of attack in one way or the other and in the present era, there are several accusations against them for indulging in compulsory conversion of people of other religions into Christianity. Now, there is a general feeling amongst the parents of students, especially female students that co-educational study in Christian institutions is highly unsafe for the future of their children and though they impart good education, the preach of morality will be a million dollar question. As long as a religion is practised in streets in lieu of its worship places, like Temple, Mosque, Church, etc., such devastation, as in the present case, does occur and will be mushrooming.”

George Kurian opposes Madras High court observation
21-08-2019 – the Judge deleted the para no.32: Since the judge had dismissed the writ petition filed by the faculty challenging a show cause notice issued to him by the college management, the counsel said the subsequent observations added by the judge after dismissing the case were unnecessary and that they may not remain part of the judgment. The judge readily accepted the request. He, however, retained other observations wherein he had said that several women-centric enactments had been misused to teach a lesson to men in strained relationships. “This is the right time to think of suitable amendments in those laws, in order to safeguard the interest of the innocent,” the judge had said and directed the High Court Registry to mark a copy of his judgment to the Union Ministry of Law and Justice. The judge said[3], “When the court posed a question as to whether the court can remove Paragraph no.32 at this stage in the absence of any review petition – as the court becomes functuous officio after signing of the order – it was replied that there was no request for reviewing the entire order and a particular observation, which was general in nature was sought to be removed. Such removal will not in any way alter the findings/decisions of the court and therefore, there was no bar for this court to remove the Paragraph no.32, which was inapplicable to the present case on hand, especially when those points were not at all urged, canvassed, advanced or discussed by either of the counsel at the time of argument in the open court,” adding, “In view of the above submission and considering the fact that the general observation in Paragraph no.32 has been made by this court after the result portion, which will not at any cost affect efindings/substance/contents of the order, the said Paragraph no. 32 of the order is hereby deleted“, the judge added[4].

Pappusamy, Ravi Santhosam, Valentina - what common

How is that Christian and Communists could sing the same song immediately?: Justice Vaidyanathan had said parents felt that Christian co-education institutions were highly unsafe for the future of girls. Days after Justice S. Vaidyanathan of the Madras High Court commented in an order that parents felt that Christian co-education institutions were highly unsafe for the future of girls, several groups, including the Tamil Nadu Bishops’ Council (TNBC), the Tamil Nadu Latin Bishops’ Council (TNLBC), the All India Democratic Women’s Association (AIDWA) and the Indian Christian Association of Tamil Nadu expressed concern over his remarks. What this AIDWA was doing when so many girl students of the MCC complained, news appeared in the media and they protested in the college? Were they not conscious about the chastity of the girls, standards of the college or the values of the Christians etc?

What made the removal of para.32
21-08-2019, the Christians and the Communists threaten and 21-08-2019, the Judge bends and mends!: The judge made the comments while dealing with a sexual harassment case involving a professor of the Madras Christian College. In a statement issued on 21-08-2019, Monday, TNBC and TNLBC termed two of Justice Vaidyanathan’s observations — that there were “several accusations against Christians for indulging in compulsory conversion of people of other religions into Christianity”; and that there was a “general feeling among the parents of female students that co-educational studies in Christian institutions is highly unsafe for the future of their children” — regrettable and unwarranted[5]. “First of all, the case is not in any way connected with the question of religious conversion. Therefore, the said observation on religious conversion was unwarranted,” said Rev. Dr. Antony Pappusamy, Archbishop of Madurai and president of TNBC and TNLBC[6]. Regarding the observation about female students being unsafe, Dr. Pappusamy said, “We wonder what the material and data placed before the honourable judge were, that led him to render such a finding. As such, from a cursory reading of the factual matrix in that particular case, we do not find any institutional material warranting such an observation.” He also again endorsed a copy to Ministry of Law and Justice for making necessary amendments[7]. This has created controversy among the legal circles[8].

Para deleted. Deccan Herald

Valentina, State president, AIDWA: In a statement, S. Valentina, State president, AIDWA, said that when the words from a judge could become a law, the baseless accusations of the judge could have a serious impact on the welfare of minorities in the current socio-political climate. “A judge could have a particular view on a subject or could adhere to a specific political ideology. But when the judge is delivering justice, the judge should be impartial and wear the glasses of the Indian Constitution,” she said. AIDWA urged that the comments be withdrawn. Can anybody ask S. Valentina , State president, AIDWA, as to whether she made such statement against the Judge as a woman or Christian or otherwise? Where was Valentine when those Christian professors were harassing the girls, touching their breasts and barging into their rooms? Is it OK for Valentine all such sexual acts?

Para deleted. Deccan Herald.2
The Indian Christian Association of Tamil Nadu said it was deeply hurt: The Indian Christian Association of Tamil Nadu said it was deeply hurt by Justice S. Vaidyanathan’s remarks in the sexual harassment case involving the Madras Christian College.“The sweeping statement that there is a general feeling among parents that co-educational study in Christian institutions is highly unsafe for the future of their children, especially female students, is based on conjectures and surmises, and the comments [should] be expunged from the judgment,” said Dr. Ravi Santosham, president, Indian Christian Association. “The judge’s statement about compulsory conversions is baseless and totally irrelevant to the merits of the case.”

CBCI oppose, Para.32 of the Judgment

Catholic bishops’ forum in Tamil Nadu, The National Council of Churches in India, etc cry foul[9]: Christian leaders said the judge’s comments were painful but they welcomed the court’s decision not to interfere with the decision of the college, which British Protestant missionaries established in 1837. “The remarks the judge made in the order are highly disappointing,” said Father L. Sahayaraj, deputy secretary of the Catholic bishops’ forum in Tamil Nadu. The comments could “damage the image of the Church and the reputation of its education intuitions,” the priest told ucanews.com. The National Council of Churches in India, a forum of Protestant and Orthodox churches in India, said the comments were hurtful[10]. “We are hurt and sorry for such remarks in the order,” said general secretary Asir Ebenezer. “Christians work with commitment and diligence. Unfortunately, we are blamed and our places portrayed as unsafe. It really makes us sad.” The Tamil Nadu Catholic Bishops’ Council in an official statement termed the observations “very unfortunate.” It said conversion or the safety of Christian schools were not the issues before the court. It was one “relating to sexual harassment by a professor and the college has taken necessary action against him without any excuse.” The council also said Christian educational institutions have “produced stalwarts” in India, including Hindus and Muslims. Prabhakar Tirkey, national president of the Rashtriya Isai Mahasang (National Federation of Christians), said the court seems to have forgotten that “not a single Christian has been convicted” for violating conversion laws in the history of India. He noted that Christian missionaries introduced English education some five centuries ago but when the British left India in 1947, the Christian population was less than 3 percent, and “now it is 2.3 percent.”

Vaiko converted Lazarus claim

Political and Minority bogey pressures: The MDMK chief, V. Gopalsamy, reportedly converted to Christianity, as being proclaimed by the Christian evangelist and propagandist C. Lazarasus, immediately came to question the judgment and his video has become viral.  Then on 19-08-2019, Geoge Kurian, Vice Chairman of National Commission for Minorities writes an open letter questioning the judgment.  On 21-08-2019, the Christians and the Communists threaten and 21-08-2019, the Judge bends and mends. Thus, wthin days, they could achieve what they wanted or decided. How is that then, eve rything is controlled by RSS, BJP and so on? Who rules India really? How much of Christian interference and how it works and all, have been proved again through this incidence.

Abhaya murder case

All rapists, pedophiles and other sexual charge sheeters are good: One can recall how the Sha Bano judgment was rescinded by bring another Act, just to placate Muslims and promote Muslim vote bank. So you can forget all the crimes committed by the Christians – the murder of Abhaya, rape of nun by Mulakal, rape of children i.e, Christian pedophiles, sexual harassment, and every thing. All have become good souls, only the affected have been unholy, satanic and dangerous.  The charged, accused and other sinned Cardinal, bishops, pastors and clergy have been redeemed.  An none could question the Christians whatever crime they committed. The Bishops, Churches and above all Vatican are supreme, the Indian judges, courts etc., are nothing. They obey only Holy Sea, Spirit, God etc., not the Indian Constitution, Acts and Rules made there-under.

Two Madras Christian College professors face sexual harassment: One dismissed and the other indicted by the Madras High Court!

August 17, 2019

Two Madras Christian College professors face sexual harassment: One dismissed and the other indicted by the Madras High Court!

MCC, Zoology dept-complaint letter
Co-educational Christian institutions were highly unsafe for the future of their children:  Observing that Christian missionaries face accusations of indulging in forcible religious conversions, the Madras High Court said, “there was a general feeling” among parents, especially of girl children, that co-educational Christian institutions were highly unsafe for the future of their children[1]. Dismissing a case filed by a Madras Christian College (MCC) faculty accused of sexually harassing some girls during a study tour to Karnataka in January, Justice S. Vaidyanathan said[2], most parents were of the view that though Christian institutions impart good education, “the preach of morality will be a million dollar question.” Under ultra-modern conditions, the judge has made such observation that[3], “co-educational Christian institutions were highly unsafe for the future of their children”. Definitely, such remarks would not have come from a judge, because of the prevailing situation and many pedophile cases and other sexual harassment cases have been coming to courts involving pastors, bishops and others all over India[4]. As many educational institutions are under their controlled, it is quite natural to apprehend about the future of their children studying at schools and grown-up students going to colleges[5]. Even for conversions also, only, now such complaints are made, as the Christian missionaries have been so desperate to cover up their crimes committed in many areas affecting the society. As it has been reported by PTI, other dailies and on-line media carried the news[6].

Raveen Rajasigh, Christian Collge, Madras

Raveen Rajasingh and Samuel Tennyson – the two indulged in the sexual harassment The alleged harassment occurred during an academic tour to Mysuru, Bengaluru and Coorg in January this year[7]. In fact, the girl-students asked them to be within the limits. The Internal Complaints Committee (ICC) of the college had found two professors of the college — R Raveen and Samuel Tennyson — guilty of sexually harassing students[8].  During the trip, several girl students complained that the professor in question made lewd remarks about their clothes, harassed them and behaved inappropriately[9]. They also alleged that throughout the trip, Tennyson had abetted Raveen’s behaviour by encouraging him[10]. Raveen even entered a room where girls were staying and slept on the bed. On returning to Chennai, the students complained to the Head of the Department who dismissed their complaints, calling it a ‘first time offence’ by the said teacher. Later, a petition signed by 30 odd students of the department protesting the college’s lack of initiative in addressing the issue caught the attention of the authorities. An ICC inquiry was held on the issue, and statements of the students who were subjected to harassment and the accused professors were recorded. On May 24, the ICC released the results of the inquiry which found both the professors guilty. R Raveen, who was an assistant professor in the Zoology department was dismissed after a detailed inquiry by the college Internal Complaints Committee into the incident.  His colleague Samuel Tennyson, another faculty from the department, too had been accused of abetting Raveen’s behaviour. However, the college is yet to dismiss Samuel due to a case filed by him on the issue in the Madras High Court. MCC’s principal Alexander Jesudasan confirmed the dismissal. “We have dismissed the professor after the ICC found him guilty of multiple cases of sexual harassment against students of the department. As for Samuel, the college cannot issue a dismissal order as there is a court case pending on the issue. However, the court has directed Samuel not to enter the campus premises,” the principal said.

MCC, Zoology dept-Samuel Tennyson

Samuel Tennyson tried to evade the proceedings by filing a petition in the High Court: Samuel Tennyson, an assistant professor in the Zoology department of the college, in a writ petition had sought to quash the fact finding report of the college’s Internal Complaints Committee (ICC) dated April 17, 2019. The report had stated that Tennyson had sexually harassed female students[11]. He also sought to quash the consequential second show cause notice dated May 24, 2019. Besides the probe, the college management had issued him a warning and barred him from paper-evaluation work and internal examinership for the end semester 2018-2019. He was also barred from accompanying students for tours for three years. Tennyson argued in the court that the ICC did  not given him certain documents and statements he had sought to defend himself. The college and the committee said that sufficient opportunity was given to him to defend[12]. Had Samuel not filed petition in the Court, these details would not have come in the media, so that the general public could understand the reality of the condition and discuss.

DC - 34 girls complained MCC
Judge could note the prima facie and took decision:  He made the remarks in the judgment after dealing with the writ petition on merits and refusing to interfere with a show-cause notice issued by the college management to the petitioner on the basis of the Internal Complaints Committee (ICC) report that a prima facie case had been made out against him on a complaint lodged by 34 students. Naming one of the girl students who had deposed before the ICC and provided a vivid account of the events that unfolded during the study tour, the judge suggested that she be provided appropriate counselling. He blamed the college for having deputed only two female teachers and five male teachers to accompany the students during the tour. In other words, not only these two, perhaps, others had also knowingly aided and abetted the sexual crime. Nowadays, it is intriguing to note that women are engaged in degrading women. But, here, as all have been highly educated, this type of attitude is unimaginable.

34 girls complained MCC
As long as a religion is practised in streets in lieu of its worship places such devastation: After concluding his verdict, the judge said: “Before parting with the judgment, this court feels it appropriate to point out that Christian missionaries are always on the source of attack in one way or the other and in the present era, there are several accusations against them for indulging in compulsory conversion of people from other religions. “As long as a religion is practised in streets in lieu of its worship places such devastation, as in the present case, does (sic) occur and will be mushrooming.” The judge went on to state he does not want to probe further and find out whether the petitioner was really at fault or was he a victim of a false complaint. The judge pointed out the reality of the secularism practiced in India. When what has to be carried on within the precincts of “place of worship” is carried on the roads, it is quite natural that such acts violate acts and rules and affect others also. Praying and or preaching on the roads, cannot be done, as they violate secularism.

MCC, Zoology dept-Raveen

Women Acts and Rules should be amended suitably: Disposing the petition, Justice S Vaidyanathan, in the order on August 13, 2019 said that there is no justifiable ground to interfere with the fact finding report as well as the second show cause notice[13]. However, the judge, without going into “the question of who is at fault in the present case”, observed that the government should think of amendments to laws meant for women protection “to prevent its misuse so as to safeguard the interest of the innocent masculinity too[14]. A similar trend is already being observed in the case of anti-dowry law (498-A), which is being misused to such an extent that the Supreme Court has termed it legal terrorism,” The court also observed[15], “we have to ask a question for ourselves as to whether those laws are invoked by women with genuine reasons.” Stating that several women centric enactments had been misused to teach a lesson to men in strained relationships, the judge said[16], “This is the right time for to think of suitable amendments in those laws in order to safeguard the interest of the innocent,” and directed the High Court Registry to mark a copy of his judgment to the Union Ministry of Law and Justice.

What happened to the Hindus killed in Orissa?

June 3, 2019

What happened to the Hindus killed in Orissa?

The biased reporting of the mediaThe media reported about the killing of Hindu Sanyasi – Swami Lakshmanand and his disciples variously as follows:

Bhubaneswar (Orissa): In a sensational incident[1] Swami Laxmanananda Saraswati and four of his close aids have been killed in a grenade attack by the suspected Maoists at around 9 PM at Jalaspotta Ashram, in Tumudi Bandh area in the tribal dominated district of Kandhamal in Southern Orissa on Saturday night.

Kandhamal (Orissa)In the wake of widespread violence in Orissa, the National Commission of Minorities (NCM) on Tuesday sought a comprehensive report from the State Government over the fresh violence in the communally-sensitive tribal dominated Kandhamal following the killing of Swami Laxmananda Saraswati[2].  “NCM has sought entire details of the episode and asked the Naveen Patnaik led Government to explain how the problem started,” NCM Chairman Md Shafi Qureshi said in a statement[3].

Killed along with Swami are Hindus: On August 23rd night, the celebrations were going on the eve of Krishna’s birth day just like Christmas. at Laxmananda’s kanyashram at Tumudibandh, about 100 km from Phulbani, the district headquarters of Kandhmal district. The killed were as follows, though not revealed by the media:

  1. Swami Lakshmanananda.
  2. Two inmates of the ashram – ladies, one has been Sanyasi.
  3. Two devotees.

A group of nearly 30 armed came in vehicles and they reportedly thrown a grenade and also started firing with AK-47. While confirming the attack, police sources said the attackers used automatic weapons and bombs[4]. Thus, such a group of men could not have come all of sudden and therefore, the attack has been evidently planned one in eliminating the Swamiji.

I have copied the images from the following sites:

http://picasaweb.google.com/pravat.chandra/MurderOfSwamiLaxmanandaSaraswati
http://picasaweb.google.com/visakeobbsr/SwamiLaxmanandaSaroswati

I acknowledge for using these photos only for the purpose of pointing out that the media has been suppressing the facts of the suffering of Hindus in Secular India. Though it has been against all law, norms, code etc., the national and international media and other agencies have been doing .

The Police enquiry appears to be slacking and directionless: The media reports thatOrissa police are yet to start a thorough inquiry that will lead them to the 30-odd assailants. In the last four days, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has announced the setting up of a judicial inquiry commission to unravel the truth and sent two police IGs and two DIGs to Kandhamal. On Tuesday (26-08-2008), he sent an investigation team, headed by Crime Branch SP Yatindra Koyal, to Kandhamal to hunt down the killers. On Saturday night (23-08-2008) when Lakshmanananda Saraswati was killed, Orissa Director General of Police Gopal Chandra Nanda didn’t wait for a full inquiry before making a statement that Maoists were behind the incident. “From the automatic weapons used it looks like the handiwork of Maoists,” he said. But four days after the incident, the state Government has nothing to prove this claim though two persons were detained on the suspicion that they could have had a role in the killing. On Wednesday (27-08-2008), Inspector General of Police (Intelligence) Manmohan Praharaj sought to play down the Maoist angle and said the police were keeping all the options open. “Whatever evidence we have got is consistent with the Maoist stamp in the kind of operation they undertake. The assailants had left a note written on the letterhead of Vamsadhara Zonal Committee, signed by one Azad[5], and it is consistent with the Maoist methods,” said Praharaj. While the Chief Minister claimed that intensive raids and intelligence-based combing operations were being undertaken to apprehend the culprits, police admitted that the probe was heading nowhere. “We have interrogated people but had to let them go after finding little evidence,” said Praharaj. The Maoist theory has been junked by Sangh Parivar outfits, who accuse the local Christians to be the killers. “Someone had decided at some point of time that Lakshmanananda Saraswati had to be killed,” said a VHP leader.

Hindu-Christian clashes: The media, both national and international local and Catholic has been unanimous that the clashes had been between Hindus and Christians. Then, how is that the killed Hindus are not mentioned in the media? The over-enthusiastic Christian media grossly misinterprets the fact that a nun was burned alive, though the victim has been a Hindu woman only[6]. The woman, Rajani Majhi, was a Hindu and a student of Padampur Women’s College in Bargarh district, said Deputy Inspector General of Police (northern range) Y B Khurania. Her biological father Laxmi Prasad Mahakud and foster father Guchu Majhi are both Hindus. They are residents of Nuapada village under Jharbandh police jurisdiction in the district[7]. Again, the national and international print and electronic media have been publishing pictures / photos, as if only Christians have been attacked, affected and so on. The attacked, suffered and affected Hindus are totally suppressed.

It is not national shame, but shame for secularism, as it has been against Hindus: No doubt, Dr. Manmohan Sigh has been a well-learned person, but his utterance that the Orissa incidences have been “national shame” has been shame to his stature. That is why the international and national stooges have been emboldened enough to publish, print and blare whatever they want without any basis[8]. Thus, the pro-Christian, Christian and anti-Hindu media have been so happy to make his utterance[9] headlines!

 50,000 schools will remain closed today!:Manmohan Singh said to a high level delegation of Christian leaders who met him on Thursday evening that the ongoing violence in Orissa is a “national shame”. To protest the attack on the Christian community, nearly 50,000 schools and institutions run by Christian organisations across the country will remain closed across the country on Friday[10]. A peaceful protest rally outside the Orissa Bhavan is planned on Friday. Several peaceful rallies are also expected to be held at various other places. The CRPF, which has been deployed in trouble-torn Orissa, is making all efforts to bring back the violence-affected families who have fled their homes for forests fearing attack from right-wing groups.

The Christians all the way to meet PM and others! Alarmed with the ongoing attacks on the Christian community, the seven member delegation, including two archbishops and a bishop, demanded that central para military forces be deployed in the affected areas to prevent reoccurrence of violence. They also asked for a CBI inquiry in the matter. The vice-president of National Council of Churches of India, Sushma Ramaswami, who was part of the delegation said, “The PM repeatedly said that the chief minister of Orissa, Naveen Patnaik, and the governor, have failed in their duty. He said that he would immediately call them and remind them of their constitutional responsibility to ensure the protection of all citizens.” Ms Ramaswami also said the Prime Minister assured the delegation that immediate financial relief would be provided to the families of those who lost their kin and to those who have been injured. All Christian organisation, including the Catholics Bishop Conference of India (CBCI), National Christian Council and Evangelical Fellowship of India have come under the National United Christian Forum to protest the violence aimed at the community. CBCI spokesperson Babu Joseph, who was a part of the delegation, said, “This is only the second time after 1998 when an all India call for closure of Christian institutions have been given. In 1998, it was due to the attacks in Dangs in Gujarat, but this is at a much larger scale and several lives have been lost.” Ms Sushma said they also asked the PM to ensure that at least the local Christian leaders be allowed to visit the local areas to reassure the people and take stock of the situation. The delegation submitted a memorandum which listed 26 people who lost their lives, 41 churches, four convents and five hostels which were destroyed, over 250 houses damaged and seven institutions attacked.

Hindu leaders do not care: What would have happened, if Hindu leaders tried to meet PM? It has not happened and therefore, the question does not arise. But, still, the learned PM and others do not bother as to why the Swami and four other Hindus were killed? Who killed? And why they were killed? But they go on sidetrack the issue of “Christians being attacked” and so on, even not bothering about the Hindus attacked.

A Hindu Swami killed while celebrating “Janmasthami” festival in Secular India!

The Christians meddling in Orissa, killings and communal issues

Vedaprakash

vedamvedaprakash@yahoo.com

Late news of killing an old man by the unknown killers: Now, it is evident that the Christians have started indulging in terrorist activities in Orissa, after inciting the otherwise peaceful, innocent and calm Oriya people. Throughout India, Hindus were celebrating “Janmasthami” – the birth day festival of Lord Krishna. The old-man, Swami Lakshmanananda was also doing that unaware of the fact that he would be killed soon. The Christians have been bend upon this man ever since he started campaigning against their activities. The John Dayal’s tirade against Swami Lamanananda has been open and glaring[1].

The conflicting reports about killing of the Swami: The news of killing of Swami Lakshmanananda and four disciples, including a woman by the unknown people – has been reported differently by various leading and local papers.

The Swaami was reportedly killed a group of armed at his Jalespata ashram in Kandhamal district of Odisha on August 19th, 2008 (Saturday) in a grenade attack, shot dead and so on. Read the reports: “The Hindu” reports like this:

Orissa police on alert after ashram attack

Prafulla Das                http://www.hindu.com/2008/08/24/stories/2008082460251000.htm

 

BHUBANESWAR: The police all over Orissa have been put on alert after Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Swami Lakshmanananda and four disciples, including a woman, were killed in an attack by armed men at Jalespata in the communally sensitive Kandhamal district on Saturday (19-08-2008).

Maoists suspected

The assailants opened fire and hurled bombs at his ashram at 8.30 p.m., Director-General of Police Gopal Chandra Nanda told The Hindu over telephone. “We suspect that the assailants could be Maoists,” he said.

The Superintendent of Police and district officials reached the spot.

Mr. Nanda said several senior police officials were asked to go to the district to prevent any untoward incident. The SPs in all 30 districts were put on alert.

Police sources said police were deployed near churches and prayer houses in the district.

On Friday, a threatening letter was received at the ashram and the Tumidibanda police station was informed.

Last year, Kandhamal district witnessed large-scale violence involving Hindus and Christians on Christmas-eve, following an attack on Swami Lakshmanananda.

Another report of “Kalinga Times” from Bubaneswar has been as follows:

Swami Lakshmanananda, four others killed

Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader, four others shot dead
24 Aug, 2008, 0107 hrs IST, IANS

http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/PoliticsNation/VHP_leader_four_others_shot_dead/articleshow/3397757.cms

BHUBANESWAR: At least five people, including a top leader of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), were shot dead in an ashram in Orissa’s Kandhamal district by an armed group during Janmashtami festival celebrations on Saturday, the police said.

Over 20 armed people attacked at the ashram at Jalespata village, some 340 km from here, at about 8 p.m. and started firing.

“Five persons were killed. They include Swami Laxmanananda Saraswati,” Gopal Chandra Nanda, state director general of police, told IANS.

The dead include Swami Amrutananda, a woman and a boy, he said.

The police could not confirm whether the attackers were Maoist guerrillas.

Saraswati was a senior VHP leader.

The police have clamped orders prohibiting the gathering of four or more people in the entire district.

After hearing the news of the killings, thousands of people blocked roads in several places of the state.

The media has sensationalized and internationalized the Kandhmal issue: The media has definitely internationalized the issue[2], of course, the Christian romanticism in such activities have been more noticeable. Hundreds of news coverage in western media and more blogs appeared condemning the “Hindu communal forces”. The NDTV recorded as follows:

“A team from the National Minority Commission will visit riot torn Kandhamal district of Orissa on Monday, where night curfew continues. Curfew has been lifted from district headquarter town of Phulbani, but night curfew will continue in three other towns. This after a week of violence gripped the district when violence broke out between Hindu’s and Christians but the web of violence is not that simple.The Congress has also demanded an all-party meeting on Kandhmal communal violence.

“While the rest of the world was celebrating Christmas, the tribal dominated Kandhmal district in Orissa was literally burning. It was a mysterious mix of communal and ethnic passions that pushed the district into complete lawlessness for over a week. Old and simmering antagonism that existed between the Hindus and Christians and between Kandh tribals and Dalit Panos for years in this district were ignited at the same time and that made the situation get out of control.

“What and who was responsible for the eruption of violence that affected the entire population, across the religious and ethnic divide? With tension still continuing in the disturbed district, a dispassionate study of the circumstances is simply not possible. NDTV takes a look at what lies at the root of the hatred that has set Hindus against Christians and Panos against the tribals.

“The politics of hate: On December 24, the structure set up to hold Christmas celebrations in Brahamanigaon was attacked and destroyed. The provocation was nothing more than the pandal encroaching the main road of the town. That was enough to start an ugly argument, which ended in the Hindus attacking the pandal and injuring two Christians.  After that, a rumour that prominent VHP leader Swami Laxmananand Saraswati had been attacked by a Christian mob at Dasingibadi set off a wildfire of violence across Kandhamal. “How can they attack a revered saint who has been working for the people for last 33 years? You think they want peace,” asks GS Rath, Secretary, Vishwa Hindu Parishad. At the same time, trouble was brewing also between the Kandha tribals and their old adversaries, the Dalit Panos. This mutual hatred had been simmering for the past 20 years with seven kandhs and 9 Dalits killed in clashes in 1994. The kandhs called a bandh on December 25 and 26, to protest the scheduled tribe/caste status acquired by the Dalits recently But many suspect the Kandhs were set up by the Sangh Parivaar, to add to the confusion during the attack on the Christians. But the tribal leaders themselves say it was entirely a coincidence. Lambodar Kanhar, Secretary, Kui Samaj, Kandhmal said, “We had a meeting on the November 29 and decided on the dates. It was just a coincidence and once we decided we went ahead with it.”

“Clash of the castes: The Kandh tribals, predominantly pro-Hindu or Hindus, account for an overwhelming 51 per cent of the population. And nearly 70 per cent of the Dalit Panos who constitute 18 per cent of the population are Christians. That partly explains why the ethnic conflict here sometimes also assumes religious overtones If a Dalit becomes a Christian he loses all privileges and concessions available to the Scheduled Castes but if a tribal becomes a Christian he retains all the privileges available to the Scheduled Tribes. This was at the root of the conflicts – both religious and social. Christian organisations have been pushing for scheduled caste benefits for the Dalits, irrespective of their religious status, the Kandh tribals and the Sangh Parivaar are fighting the idea. What adds to the animosity is the Sangh Parivar’s allegation that Christian missionaries have used allurements and incentives to convert the mostly poor and backward population. Even the BJP, a partner in the ruling alliance feels there should be stricter provisions against conversions. Suresh Pujari, President, BJP, Orissa said, “The core issue is forced conversion by way of allurements or coercion. We need to enact a law that would be so strict that nobody would ever dare to convert people by alluring them.”

“But Christian leaders say the conversion issue has been drummed up just to hound them. “If conversions are only a pretext for anti-minority violence, why are Muslims and Sikhs also targeted even though they don’t convert people? It’s a mindset that looks for pretexts to attack minorities,” said John Dayal, Secretary General, All India Christian Committee. But the fact is, the VHP has been aggressively tackling the Christian conversions here for some time now. In the late 60s, VHP leader Swami Laxmananand Saraswati set up an Ashram in Chakapad and they have been running an anti-Christian campaign in Kandhamal since then. Their sole aim is to re-convert tribals and Dalit Christians. In May 2005, they organised the largest Hindu congregation in Orissa to celebrate the reconversion of nearly 350 tribal Christians. The Swami is very clear about what the real trouble in Orissa is. “The fight is on because we want to them (people) to become Hindus and they want them to join Christianity and convert the land into a Christian land,” said Swami Laxmananand , VHP Leader & Hindu Missionary. Adding to the smouldering situation are election campaigns every few years that feed on and fuel the religious hate campaigns. Christians say religious intolerance has seeped into the bureaucratic and judicial system as well and it is that which explains the administration’s indifference to the anti-Christian violence in Kandhmal.. Christian leaders are also worried about the reaction of their own community to the religious intolerance. They see a rise in Christian militancy in some areas, especially in Bamunigaon where an armed Christian mob retaliated ferociously to the attack on December 25, turning on the local Hindus and attacking the police with firearms. While the state government does not seem to recognise the new threat and blames the Maoists for the armed attack on Hindus in Bamunigaon, the rise of Christian militancy in Kandhmal is indeed a reality and could have serious consequences, both on the minority community and the socio-religious conflicts in future.”

The Police already suspected “NGO-Naxal-Christian nexus”: The police now think it’s a NGO-Naxal-Christian nexus. Wow, that’s really the kind of work Orissa police can be really proud of. In 1999, Australian missionary Graham Staines and his two minor sons were burnt alive for allegedly converting tribals. The Christian propaganda in fuelling the communal hatred is noted by their International reporting and spreading distorted news. Assist News Service could be cited as one example[3]. Ironically, they do not record their overenthusiastic or violation of human rights, religious freedom of others – Hindus etc. They do not record or analyse their provocative actions, utterances and blaspheming Hindu religion, scriptures and Gods / Goddesses. Under the guise of “Liberation Theology”, they have understanding with the “naxals” and others and thus, operating accordingly colluding with them. The GFA has been indulging in such activities[4]. They simply carry out the propaganda that the Christians are attacked in Orissa, persecuted, martyred and so on. They do not bother when a “dalit” woman refused to convert to Christianity was attacked by the christians[5], though they talk about woman-rights, human-rights and what not!

Swami Laxmananda ‘stokes passion’ in Kandhamal”! Of late, particularly, the Swami has become target. Their propagandist journals blared like this[6], “Hindu World Council organizer Swami Laxmananda ‘stokes passion’ in Kandhamal”! So this old-man was strengthening passion, fuelling passion, stirring up anger strong feelings, encouraging rage, adding fuel to fire. Thus, the Christians cannot keep quite or tolerate his nonsense and they have to raise and teach him a lesson. The article contributed by James Varghese & Gospel for Asia, is worth to read to understand their psyche, as giving a photo of the Swamiji, they discussed the issue.

The Christians should stop conversion and dividing Indian society: The study of Christian missionaries and their activities in India at all levels clearly prove that they have only religious arrogance in their conversion activities. They have assumed theological mandate ingrained since childhood or at seminaries afterwards or allured by money and material benefits after growing up and thus, they have been indulging in such unholy activities. Though, they talk in terms of “Vatican Coucil – II” language that they respect “divine” in every religion and so on, their psyche would not change in Orissa or elsewhere also.

Graham Staines and Swami Lamanananda: Here also note the coincidence – “Christ” loving souls are involved (though right now legally not so) in such killing of an old-man while he was celebrating the birth day of “Krishna”. Historically, the “Christ” was derived from “Krishna” as pointed out by many theologians, historians and others[7]. But still, they reverse the history and try to fool Hindus. If they really want peace, why not they celebrate “Janmasthami” with Hindus instead of promoting hatred and indulging in killing a Swamiji? Would they think that this has been revenged for Graham Staines? Or you want more blood? Perhaps, now they can settle the issues and come for dialogue, as more killings would not solve the issues.

The Christians should thus be honest in their activities even in “dialogues”. As usual, I quite the following:

“If believers of Gods abuse Gods, seekers of Gods destroy Gods, faithful followers of one religion question the faith of others and, against all moral and ethical codes and Universal principles, conduct pseudo-spiritual and psychological-religious warfare against one religion, then these activities are not “inculturation” but “outculturation”, as religion and culture are inseparable for Hindus.

 

Theocentric and theocratic eclectics are dangerous as nuclear, chemical and other warheads. The concept of “My God is your God, but your Gods is No God” does not foster understanding, co-operation and goodwill. The concept should be changed to “Your God is my God and my God is your God” and accepted by all religions.

 

This is the only way for humanity today. Super God Rivalry, religious superiority, racial / arrogant theology, theocratic world domination and neo-spiritual globalism cannot make “believers” live in peaceful existence. Therefore, the behaviour, attitude and psyche of the inter-religious theologists should change making “dialogue” a “dialogue” but not a secret “monologue” to undermine, disparage and denigrate other Gods, scriptures and religions. Historical facts, established parallels aftrroer bowals and chronological developments and changes should be mentioned clearly. They should clearly spell out their purpose of dialogue and standards before initiating dialogues.”

Nathuram Godse and Karunanidhi

June 3, 2019

Nathuram Godse and Karunanidhi

VEDAPRAKASH

Godse and Dravidian leaders: Very often the DK-protagonists[1], Communist and the like just blurt out that that RSS killed Gandhi[2]. We do not know why they remember very often or like Godse (1910-1949) like this.  Now, Karunananidhi cries that “the killers of Gandhi should not come to power” right inside the TN Legislative Assembly. “The sinners of Gandhi-killers should not come to power again. Again one Ayodhya, one Rama Ratha, journey of Advani and such things happen, the country would become a jungle[3]. “Another Ayodhya or Rathyatra by BJP’s L.K. Advani would turn the nation into a grave,” he said. UPA allies should ensure that the “followers of killers of Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation, should not rule the land,” he told the Tamil Nadu assembly[4]. This way he responds to the Communists and others who raised the issue of price rise! Why this crack-pot again and again target Rama?

DMK and BJP: We have to deal with all the points raised by the CM in the Assembly, as every citizen has a right to discuss about what C. M talks officially in the assembly. How he was hobnobbing with the Gandhi-killers for five years (1996-2001) without shame, disgrace or mortification? At that time what he was doing? Even T. R. Balu was hobnobbing with BJP-RSS volunteers for his Central Madras Constituency election.

His anti-BJP tirade could not have been made right inside the Assembly, as it is not Panagal Park or Mayilai Mangollai to talk in Tamil anything he likes.

When Murasoli Maran was proposed as Minister, nationalists raised questions, as he had been anti-nationalist and proven ideologist of Tamil separatist movement[5]. Was was writing in “Murasoli”, the DMLK mouth-piece arguing for “Dravidasthan”. He also recorded in his introduction that Karinanidhi encouraged him to write and accommodated in the paper. However, he assured BJP leaders that hereafter, he would not talk anything against nation, as he would become a “Central Minister”!

The same thing happened with PMK and MDMK. The PMK again surrendered and agreed to bury all its ideologies of separatism, self-determination and LTTE support. In fact, it had carefully withdrawn all its anti-Indian books, booklets and propaganda literature.

As for as MDMK was concerned, Vaiko never minced his words for his sympathy and ideological support to and for LTTE or trans-territorial Tamil movement[6]. So he decided to keep outside the ministry and support.

Dravidian leaders sand Mahathma Gandhi: The Dravidian leaders of all sorts had / have been totally against Mahathma Gandhi. They had scant regard for him and talked and wrote disrespecting him in their propagandist literature and papers[7]. EVR, Annadurai and Karunanidhi have been very much against Mahathma Gandhi and they always used to talk in a very scurrilous, derogatory and debasing manner with sarcasm and ridicule. The way in which they talk in Tamil could be understood the real inner meaning only by the Tamil-knowing people. Just remember how Karunanidhi asked about Rama with his arrogant sarcasm, malicious derision and blasphemous mock with his body language. Thousand times more derogatory attitude would be there when they talked during 1940s. They used to address him as “Gandhiyar”, “Parppana adigoli”, “Varnashrama vithagar” and such words and expressions in a scornful way.

Karunanidhi’s official involvements in murders and assassination, acquitted later: People generally forget the recent past. In how many murders and assassination, Karunanidhi was officially involved?

•     In fact, people, particularly, the non-Tanilnadu citizens know very well that he was one of the accused in the Indira Gandhi attempted murder along with 6 others in 1969. Indira Gandhi gave relief to him by withdrawing the case.

•     He has been also under the suspicion of assassination Rajiv Gandhi, as he was / is having links with LTTE. Even when Priyanka met Nalini one of the offenders and undergoing punishment in Vellore jail, she was asking as to any political parties were involved in the assassination plot of his father?

•     He was also involved in the cold-blooded murder of the Tiruchendur temple priest and people might have forgotten the Justice Paul Commission Report. The report itself was made disappeared ad the Judge made kept quite.

 

Karunanidhi and Commissions: Karunanidhi has always been a man of two faces, many tongues. He keeps harping publicly that he is willing to face any inquiry against him. But when an inquiry commission is instituted, he always runs away from it. He tried to run away from the Justice Sarkaria Commission constituted to inquire into corruption charges against him. Another example is the case where the Justice Paul Commission Report was stolen. A case was registered and in this connection in the Madras High Court his attitude of non-cooperation was heard by Justice Singaravelu. Karunanidhi, the fourth accused in the case, refused to cooperate. In fact, the learned Judge observed that “Even if the 4th accused is brought to Court through some coercive steps, it would be futile and the proposed remedy would only aggravate the malady…

How sins are different? But, now right inside the TN Assembly, he talks about the so-called killers of Gandhi. Nathuram Godse was already hanged for killing the Gandhi. But can he absolve from the above sins? Though, with his power and manipulations, he has covered up, how the facts could be erased from the minds of TN people or Indians?

Karunanidhi and Terrorism[8]: In 1976, Gandhi’s federal government dismissed Karunanidhi’s government on the charges of  corruption. A year later, MGR won local elections and sent Karunanidhi into political wilderness until MGR’s death in 1987.

After a year of direct rule by the federal government, the DMK party regained power in Tamil Nadu in 1989. Two years later the federal government dismissed Karunanidhi for a second time, accusing him of not doing enough to crack down on the Tamil Tigers in his state.

Further, the Jain Commission said, the LTTE was getting its supplies, including arms, ammunition, explosives, fuel and other essential items from Tamil Nadu to continue its fight against the IPKF that too with the support of the DMK Government, State Administration and connivance of the law enforcement agencies.

The report said that soon after the DMK Government took over the reins of power in Tamil Nadu, “the LTTE slowly began to consolidate itself in the State and their clandestine activities, heretofore dormant, became more and more pronounced. All the activities of the LTTE at this stage towards resource mobilisation, propaganda and treatment of their wounded cadres, had taken an anti-national dimension.”

The Commission noted the visit of the then DMK MP, Mr. V. Gopalaswamy, MP (DMK) to Northern Sri Lanka and his reported meeting with Prabhakaran between February 8, 1989, and March 3, 1989.

“This visit by Mr. V. Gopalaswamy, and the manner in which this entire episode was dealt with by the DMK party sent clear signals to the pro-LTTE anti-IPKF elements in the State as well as LTTE itself that the newly-elected Government would not resort to any drastic action against such elements; on the other hand, the impression that the entire episode created was that pro-LTTE gestures, even if they were illegal, would be tolerated by the Government.”

The Commission’s report said the then Prime Minister, Rajiv Gandhi, was keen that “some satisfactory solution be arrived at with the LTTE so that the Indo-Sri Lankan Accord could be implemented in letter and spirit. He discussed this concern with Mr. Karunanidhi and sought his assistance.” After Mr. V. P. Singh became the Prime Minister on December 2, 1989, it was spelt out that if no solution came, India would no longer give any military or monetary help to any of the groups, nor allow its mainland to be used for militant activities. “The LTTE remained adamant during their parleys with Mr. Karunanidhi, and continued to demand the formation of Eelam,” the report noted.

The interim report said that credible reports existed of “active connivance of some DMK leaders with the LTTE. The LTTE was in continuous interaction with Mr. Karunanidhi, primarily to ensure that their activities continue unhindered even after the Padmanabha killing.” The ATR “noted” the observation of the Commission that there was a nexus between the LTTE and the ULFA and their combined endeavours in Tamil Nadu had also been confirmed.

The Commission’s report ponders over questions of aid to the LTTE in the killing of Rajiv Gandhi. “Were there other forces behind the LTTE involved in the conspiracy for the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi? These are questions requiring a deep and anxious probe,” the report said referring to conspiratorial aspects which were yet to be dealt with by the one-man probe panel.

Soon after the DMK Government took over the reins of power in Tamil Nadu, the LTTE slowly began to consolidate itself in the State. During 1990, a growing nexus between the LTTE and DMK and its repercussions on the local law enforcement machinery were discernible. The assassination of EPRLF leader K. Padmanabha and others at Madras on 19th June 1990 was a shocking reminder of the impunity with which the LTTE could operate in India.

The case assumes significance due to the fact that striking similarities were found in the Padmanabha assassination and the case relating to the assassination of Shri Rajiv Gandhi. It can, therefore, be safely concluded that the growing connivance of the DMK Government with the LTTE having been brought to the knowledge of the National Front Government, effective steps were not taken by the Central government to check it, whatever may be the reasons.

From the evaluation of the material, the conclusion is irresistible that there was tacit support to the LTTE by Shri M. Karunanidhi and his Government and law enforcement agencies.

The charges, put together as long quotations from the report, include: that the DMK provided a safe sanctuary for the LTTE cadres and activists, it gave advice, active assistance, finance and security cover to LTTE operations, and that the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi would not have been possible the way it happened without the nexus between the LTTE and the DMK, a nexus which started a chain of events which led to the survival and growth of the LTTE in Tamil Nadu long after the Government of India’s attitude had changed towards the LTTE and hostilities had broken out between the Indian Peace Keeping Force and the LTTE in Sri Lanka, and finally that the DMK leader and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, Mr. M. Karunanidhi, had “himself been instrumental in ensuring that things went smoothly for LTTE” and that the cadres of the LTTE had little fear of the security agencies in India “thanks to the patronage of the DMK Government”.

Mahathma Gandhi and Karunanidhi: Karunanidhi’s Tamil usage would very caustic, sarcastic and hurting with double-meaning. That too when he talks with vengeance, hatred and attacking mood, his Tamil would be very very sharp and killing. He has been capable of converting a good word into a bad or even vulgar word in Tamil connotation. He never cared for Gandhi or respected Gandhi. He even does not want to call his name “Mahathma Gandhi” and changed his name as “Uttamar Gandhi” when the name of Nungambakkam Road was changed to Mahathma Gandhi Road , he ordered that it should be ” Uttamar Gandhi Road “. Such has been his love, respect and what not for “the Father of Nation”, but now he talks about the killers of Gandhi!

Dr. Subramanian Swamy[9], President of the Janata Party has said: ?It is abominable for Priyaranjan Das Munshi to compare Karunanidhi with the Father of Our Nation. Karunanidhi is the anti-thesis?in letter and spirit?of Mahatma Gandhi. Karunanidhi was a primary accused in the murder case relating to the beastly attack on Smt. Indira Gandhi during her visit to Madurai in 1979. Moreover following the indictment by the Jain Commission, the Multi-disciplinary Investigation Team and the CBI initially viewed Karunanidhi as a prime suspect in the murder of Rajiv Gandhi?.

Killing of many Tamil leaders and the nexus: The LTTE assassinators have been the DK-sympathisers, they have been maintaining close relations with the DK-DMK-PMK-MDMK and other anti-Indian political parties (all TNLA, TNMK, and such other splinter groups). So we can always say like Karunanidhi, the killers of so-many Tamil leaders have been the DK-DMK-PMK-MDMK and other anti-Indian political parties. In fact, Tamils themselves know very well how the liberal, democratic and reasonable Tamil leaders were hunted and killed mercilessly.
