Greetings for Deepavali or Vatican’s tactics for “Inculturation”? The Vatican could have just restricted to extending greetings on the eve of Deepavali to Hindus, instead of indulging in the propagandist tactics, linking it with conversion and so on. It is evident that the psyche of Vatican has been reeling under “guilty conscience”.

Vatican tells Hindus forced conversions impossible Reuters Posted online: Tuesday, November 06, 2007 at 0000 hrs IST ROME, November 5
The Vatican told Indians on Monday that it was impossible to forcibly convert anyone to another religion, amid accusations by Hindu activists that missionaries are pressuring poor Indians to adopt Christianity. The appeal comes as relations between the two communities are strained by attacks on Christians by Hindu activists in India seeking to stamp out what they see as forced conversions. “There can be no coercion in religion: no one can be forced to believe, neither can anyone who wishes to believe be prevented from doing so,” Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, who heads the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, said in a message to Hindus for Diwali, the festival of lights. He said the Catholic Church had been faithful to the teaching on freedom of belief. Tauran urged both Hindus and Christians to focus on educating their communities, warning that the faithful could “so easily be misled by deceitful and false propaganda”. Tensions have flared between the two groups after several states governed by Hindu nationalists introduced or strengthened laws against what they see as forcible conversions. Christian groups say these laws are aimed at curbing religious freedom and against the Indian constitution. They have reported dozens of attacks on priests and Christian institutions over the past year by Hindu hardliners

Ø That even Deepavali greetings is linked with “conversion issue” proves the Vatican’s interest in “conversion” rather than stopping it.

Ø “…..it was impossible to forcibly convert anyone to another religion” is absurd when “Inculturation” and “Inter-religious” dialogues have been going on in the name of religion.

Ø “There can be no coercion in religion: no one can be forced to believe, neither can anyone who wishes to believe be prevented from doing so,” Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, who heads the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, said in a message to Hindus for Diwali, the festival of lights. This is simply false, as Vatican knows very well what it does and asks the Cardinals, Bishops and others to do.


Ø That Cardinal said the Catholic Church had been faithful to the teaching on freedom of belief, has his own connotation in the said program. If their freedom of belief does not violate the freedom of belief of Hindus, then, it could be acceptable.

Ø To prove its sincerity and honesty, Vatican should apologize to Hindus what has already been in the name of“Inculturation” and “Inter-religious dialogue”.

Ø The spurious research should stop that goes on in the name of research. Already, Archbishops have been involved in manufacturing and fabricating evidences.

Ø The Responsible Heads at the top should be honest enough to advise others, otherwise not only the faithful could “so easily be misled by deceitful and false propaganda”, even others.

Ø It is again false to say that, “Tensions have flared between the two groups after several states governed by Hindu nationalists introduced or strengthened laws against what they see as forcible conversions”. As I have already pointed out in my earlier posting, “Divine scandal, Theological corruption and religious perversity or Untouchable Gods and Untouchables! “.

Ø The claim of the Christian groups that “….these laws are aimed at curbing religious freedom and against the Indian constitution” is again false and illegal. The Constitution never gives any guarantee for conversion, this is totally false. Remember, the propagandists very often claim that the Indian Constitution has been drfted by Ambedkar! Then can anybody think that Ambedkar allowed such provision in his Constitution? Why then the same Christians ape for the amendment of the Constitutional Presidential Order 1950? Why play double game?

Ø Their “reported dozens of attacks on priests and Christian institutions over the past year by Hindu hardliners” has been also false, why not they list of te Hindus killed by them in different parts of India?

Ø How the gullible, naïve and innocent Hindus allow themselves to get converted to Christianity and also attack the Christian priests? Ø
The sio-called Christian priests have been roaming as “Sanyasis” etc., imitating “Hindus” donning ochre robes, sporting saffron / red colour their foreheads, rudhraksha around their necks etc. So The Christians themselves could have done because of “mistaken identity”! Ø
Anyway, it is better to avoid such infringements. Masquerades and duplicities.

    As US-government greeted Hindus specifically, Vatican would have followed the suit.

    Anyway, our village people here in Madurai are asking why Karunanidhi has not greeted Hindus? Has he forgotten? Or he did not want? In fact, children were so curious and asked did his sons, grandsons, great-grand sons and daughters etc., did not buy new dress? Did not eat sweets? Did not enjoy with crackers? In fact, they also asked why he should not give dress, crackers and sweets, when he could give colour-TV and so on?

    Does he prove his anti-Hindu attitude or otherwise?

    As a CM, an elected Member, that too taken oath in the name of Indian constitution (Ambedkar Constitution too), it is surprise to note his anti-people attuitude.

    He extends greetings to Muslims and Christians, but not to Hindus!

    Ironically, without shame he heads for the Hindu Religious and Endowment Board also. Wha the temles of Hindus could expect from this type of man?

    He even participates in their festivals and drink kanji etc. Many times, taks nonsense also against Hindus using such forums. Even saner elements of Muslims or Chritians do not tell him not todo so, but happily smile with his utterances.

    Note how much venom poured and hatred came out through his contemptual laugh when he questioned Rame at Erode on that evening? Could such uterances come out of such matured man ruling crores of believers?

    He fails on all secular credentials.

    But still he rules a secular state in the name of atheism blaspheming only Hndus?

    Can anybody thibnk abiout such thing happening on the earth, when people talk about hunan-rights, women-rights, children-rights, and so obn. Why thease people do not bother about any rights of Hindus?

    How and why all have been against Hindus?

    Why Hndus are oppressed and suppressed like this?

    The world has to answer.

    Suresh the Virus,

    Will you please answer atleast once to the questions that we ask you instead of passing such provoking comments.

    And Suresh,

    This article proves the fallacies in your evangelist procedures. Instead of trying to defend, you seem to be acting so very smart.

    Clean the filth on your back first before pointing out to others.

    What I feel is instead of criticising the individuals, we can discuss thye topic in question.

    The attitude and minndset of the Dravidian politicians, Dravidologists, Tamil protagonists, etc., who exhibit contradicting stands, double-speak, double-thinnk and double-crossinng ideologies.

    If all are to appreciated without any discriminnation, why they do not have such decency, courtesy annd decorum has to be analuzed?

    Why their Tamil culture, tradition, heritage as depicted by the Sangam literature is nnot followed by the faithful Tamils has to be studied critically.

    If they have anny guts, they should come out and answer to clarify their shameless attitudes.
