Coronavirus Update: the 54-yr-old man with no travel history dies of Covid-19 in Tamil Nadu: Is such myth created that only the persons with foreign travel records or going aboard and coming back to India alone would have Covid-18 and others would not have. The man, who was the 12th patient to test positive in the state, which has 18 confirmed COVID-19 cases so far, had comorbid conditions like “uncontrollable diabetes and hypertension” and COPD [Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease][1]. The 54-year-old man had a medical history of prolonged illness with steroid-dependent COPD, uncontrolled diabetes with hypertension, says Health Minister C. Vijayabaskar[2]. Thus, the media went on publishing almost the same stuff without giving the background of the victim, because, none would get such serious disease, by sitting in Madurai far away from the Covid-19 or Carona virus spreading source-countries. It is evident that the state government tried to hide the facts by dubbing it as death not due to Corona virus or COVID-19.

The victim was a construction contractor and the places of his regular visits including the mosque: Madurai Collector TG Vinay told Express that[3], “The patient, an employee of a construction company, was not a regular visitor to the construction site. However, he did go to the office. The places of his regular visits including the mosque, private hotel and the office have been disinfected by the corporation workers.” Without mentioning his name and other details, these details are given. The patient was rushed to a private hospital on 21-03-2020, Saturday with symptoms of acute respiratory illness. Doctors suspected viral pneumonia and he was tested for H1N1 (swine flu) before being shifted to GRH. On Sunday, 22-03-2020, when the test for H1N1 came negative, he was then tested for COVID-19. Unfortunately, the result this time was positive[4]. Yes, it was “unfortunate,” but, he could have informed the authorities immediately.

The victim had been with the Thailand preachers: The man had attended a wedding reception on March 9 at a city hotel, which also accommodated tourists from Thailand and Indonesia[5]. Though they have been Muslims, who have come for religious, propagandist and conversion purposes, but, on a tourist visa to circumvent the law of this land and as well as to avoid any controversy arising thereof. On March 13, the patient organised a religious meeting with preachers from Thailand at an Anna Nagar mosque, to which he was a regular visitor. Sources at the Madurai health department told Express that the group had been visiting the city as part of a tour of religious places.[6] Officials said the patient came in contact with the group when they visited a private lodge in the city on March 12 and 13. Officials said the group arrived at Madurai airport on March 12 and visited several mosques in the city. As a result, at least 60 persons had been placed under home quarantine.

16 foreigners came to Kanchipuram to spread Islam, Makkal Kural, 26-03-2020

From Erode to Madurai how the Corona virus was spread by the foreign missionaries: Two of them [the Thailand preachers] had tested positive and have been admitted to IRT, Perundurai[7]. Within hours of the death, the last rites of the 54-year-old man were completed before the break of the dawn after the body was handed over to the kin[8]. The body was shifted directly to the burial ground around 3.30am after the authorities completed hospital procedures[9]. The body was alighted from the hearse van and kept at the ground for an hour until a pit was dug. There were only four people present during final rites — his wife, son and two brothers. A team from Madhichiyam police station, that had accompanied the body, was also present[10]. No medical team or sanitation officers were present during the burial, which was completed by 5am. “The last rites were completed with very few family members and a representative from the local Jamath. Everything was completed according to the procedure,” the official said. A top district official told DH that the man was buried according to the standard operation procedure (SOP) laid out by the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.

Indonesians carona affected, Ilaiyankudi, Tamil Hindu 26-03-2020

Two groups must have visited Tamil Nadu with specific agenda: From the Tamil and English media, the following details are gathered and arranged chronologically: The foreign Islamic preachers visited the mosques as follows:

12-03-2020

13-03-2020 to 15-03-2020

16-03-2020 to 18-03-2020

19-03-2020 to 21-03-2020

22-03-2020

Suramangalam, Rahmat Nagar mosque

Chevvaippettai, Milk market mosque

Ayyampettai, Sheikd Omar mosque

Sanyasikundu, Bhukariya mosque

Jamat-ul-Firdhosh mosque

So after declaring the danger of COVID-19, these preachers were roaming from mosque to mosque indulging in religious activities as the media report variously. Evidently, the mosque authorities have not informed the concerned authorities about the visit, sojourn and activities of the Islamic preachers.

The other sojourn dates are given as follows: February 26th, 2020, four couple each of 16 Indonesians and Malaysians came to New Delhi Dabliq Jamat. They visited Kanchipuram mosques.  Then, they sojourned to many mosques situated in the towns and villages as follows:

06-03-2020 to 08-03-2020

08-03-2020 to 10-03-2020

10-03-2020 to 12-03-2020

12-03-2020 to 14-03-2020

14-03-2020 to 16-03-2020

16-03-2020 to 20-03-2020

20-03-2020 to 23-03-2020

Madurai

Ramanathapuram

Ervadi

Vallakulam

Oppilan

Kizhaslvanur

theraveli

They had gone to each and every mosque and preached about prayer and other methods. As the two sets of dates and places differ, it is evident that two different groups must have come – one from Thailand and another from Indonesia with a specific agenda. And te local mosques must have well been aware of the program in advance, as otherwise, they could not have gone there on dates as noted above.

Sultanpet, Erode, The Hindu photo

Readers, the general public and others might not understand the bias: It can easily be noted that the news reportings have been impartial, biased and suppressing facts. They have been very meticulous to record that according to the doctor, minister, report etc., without going into the details. Otherwise, they claim themselves as “investigative” journalists probing into every aspect and they know everything. But, here, they do now who would be going to mosque or not. They do not know the name of the person died with Corona virus or  COVID-19. Why the Islamic preachers from Thailand and Indonesia came, why they visited mosques, why the mosques are getting infected and they disinfected………nothing is known to them. They know only what the TN government officials said, Minister tweeted and so on. Here, such bias has been exhibited only by them and the ordinary readers did not know, till he mosques were / are disinfected.

Erode Sultanpettai,GOOGLE, 24-03-2020

Do the Islamic preachers and Indian counterparts have any agenda behind their secret sojourns?: After reading the reports, it is surprising to note as to why the Islamic preaches took such risky sojourn making themselves as prey to the COVID-19 and travelled parts of Tamil Nadu. And also why the invitees and sponsors have dared to accommodate them and carried on their activities. Though, none could have any prejudice against the Muslims, because of the past experience, naturally, a reasonable doubt arises as to whether such daring exercise could be part of their new method of jihad. In fact, already, there have been mentionings of “Corona Jihad” and so on. As the martyrdom and saheed-doms have been unique in Islam, the suicide bombers have already been in action killing many people and damaging properties. Then, suicide car bombers and plane bombers have also executed their attacks resulting in 26/11, and so on in different parts of the world. Therefore, the sane elements of Islam should prevent such new creed is not nurtured, developed and engaged in such destruction of humanity, as already, the COVID-19 has been in action. Let us not the fanatics and fundamentalist join to wipe out the earth. Let all believers pray to GOD to save the earth with the existing humanity.

The sojourn of Thailand and Indonesian clergy to Tamil Nadu mosques and the Corona virus or COVID-19 implications [1]

GOI order to ban seminar, conference etc March 2020

The Islamic congregations that went on in Tamil Nadu with Thailand and Indonesian clergy: The first death of COVID-19 or Corona virus-infected person on 25-03-2020 has raised many questions, because of the way, it has been / being reported through media even today. Now, it is a fact that Islamic preachers that have come to India from Thailand and Indonesia have been infected with COVID-19. They have entered India as “tourist” with “tourist visas.” As per the reports, it is known that the two groups landed at the New Delhi in the first week of February and March 2020 respectively. That they had gone to local “Dabliq centre” and then proceeded to their invited places is implied with their movements and few reports. From New Delhi, they reached Chennai either by flight or Train. From there, they had reached their invited places by train and as well as by private vehicle. That they had busy schedules of visiting many mosques, preaching and staying prove that their visits have been well-known and arranged. The GOI issued a circular No.PS/AMS/SJH/2020 dated 09-03-2020, warning that “In wake of COVID-19 outbreak going on in the country, all the functions including seminars, workshops, conferences are to be cancelled. This is for urgency and necessary compliance.” So, all the organizations, institutions and others who arrange such gatherings, where, more than 50 / 100 people assemble must have cancelled considering the prevailing conditions. But, it is evident that the visiting groups carried on their activities and their hosts or sponsors accommodated them at the mosques and provided all facilities to preach and propagate Islam.

Two Muslim preachers isolated, TOI, 26-03-2020
The closure / sealing of two mosques infected / visited by the COVID-19 infected preachers: As the authorities and the media have been trying to suppress the identity of the people involved in the COVID-19 contamination, they have been limited in that aspect. However, when the question of disinfection activities comes, they have to close the mosques. This would become a serious issue. The Corporation has issued closure notices to the two masjids and has begun preventive measures in the two areas where the nationals had come in contact with people. Their cook, guide and a few others have been home quarantined. On Monday, nine streets in Sultanpet area and five streets in Kollampalayam areas were closed for public movement and the roads leading to the streets were blocked by policemen, as has already been mentioned above. Health officials carried out surveys in the areas to check people with fever or other symptoms, and residents were advised not to leave their homes. Corporation Commissioner M. Elangovan told The Hindu that disinfectants were sprayed in the streets and the wholesale provisional market and shops functioning in the area were also closed till further orders. He said that one health official was posted for each street to monitor the situation and people were asked to stay indoors. Deputy Director of Health Services S. Soundammal said that 10 persons who were in close contact with the Thailand nationals were quarantined while 130 families in two areas were home quarantined.

The Christian illegal encroachment of Acharappakkam hillock portion and construction of Church complex disturbing ecology and the adjacent Hindu Temple! [2]

March 22, 2020

The Christian illegal encroachment of Acharappakkam hillock portion and construction of Church complex disturbing ecology and the adjacent Hindu Temple! [2]

Lawrence Pius, Pushpam and others visit to hillock

The case is coming up today March 23, 2020: Justices M. Sathyanarayanan and R. Hemalatha on Tuesday [25-02-2020] directed Additional Government Pleader R. Vijay Kumar to take notice on behalf of the Revenue Secretary as well as the Chengelpet Collector and obtain instructions by next month-March 2020[1]. The case is adjourned till the survey was over and fixing the next hearing on March 23, 2020[2]. According to Church version, “Pushpam Adigalar,” a Catholic priest held the charge of St. Joseph church, Acharappakkam in 1965. He reportedly started St. Joseph Elementary School for children there. There were no constructed structures until 2004, as being reported by the Tamil media[3].

Pushpam and another addressing at the hillock

How Mazhai Madha myth floated church constructed and the case started [2004 to 2017]:  In 2004, Backiya Regis took charge and he started construction of structures around the statue. It implies that there was a statue earlier and round which he started construction work. The mountain path was encroached and the work started at Pallippet, a Meikaal poromboke area [meant for grazing of cattle]. As vehicles carrying bricks, sand, CTD Bars and other construction materials, that path was encroached and converted into the road. The multi-storeyed buildings built. The Mazhai Madha church was reconstructed. To compete with and confuse the Hindu devotees, the Christians started “special prayers” on Paurnami days in 2005. As more and more Christian crowd started coming there from outside, the local people started objecting to such movements, as it caused a lot of nuisance. Whenever the local people complained to the respective authorities, they used to issue “warning notices” to the Church. They also used to have “dialogue” with the local people. However, the Church did not care and the authorities also did not take any action and thus the illegal activities went on, evidently with their co-operation and blessings. When all these illegal activities had been going on for many years, why, now the Tamil media coves this giving these details is also intriguing. To sum up, all the involved people have been doing this only because of certain extra-official and legal consideration.

Prayer tower built

Raja, a single man fights?: R. Raja told to the media, “When asked, the Revenue officials informed only four acres of meikaal poromboke land was encroached by the church authorities. But, when we went there to measure, it was revealed that they have encroached more than 60 acres of land. The hillock area coming under the forest department, mountain path and meikaal poromboke area and the areas covered under the department of Archaeology are involved. Initially, I sent registered letters to these departments pointing out the facts. As they did not take action, in other words, have been giving tacit support to the Church people I filed this petition before the Madras High Court”. But, here also, the intriguing factors have been, the authorities in question have been aiding and abetting for the last 14 years. Therefore, sending letters to the same authorities would be futile only. As the government officers change periodically, they do not bother about such letters, unless, they are addressed to their higher authorities, vigilance section etc. But what was done is not revealed in the news coverage. Therefore, as this petition has been in the court, it is right time that people like Subramanyam Swamy to take up and argue, as otherwise, for some flimsy technical reason, the petition would be rejected and the involved would be absolved from all the illegal and criminal activities.

Mazhai Madha Church - myth floated-complex-2

The massive Chruch complex has been built with an agenda: As the issue is critically analysed with circumstantial evidences, the present buildings, guest houses, hotels, road for vehicles and steps for devotees and other infrastructure, it is evident that all have been well-planned and executed with crores of money. Hundreds of lorries carrying construction materials had gone; thousands of workers involved and huge amounts disbursed. Thus, there should be enough documents for al such activities taken place. Moreover, in between, many foreigners were brought here, declaring this Church complex as “International Retreat Centre.” Therefore, all such details are also available. Thus, if the documents are asked for verification before the court, all facts would be out and the involvement of people, officials and departments would be exposed. How the Patta, current, drainage and so many sanctions and clearances have been given, which officers signed those documents would be known, as they are open to the public. Therefore, as the case is posted tomorrow, i.e, 23-03-2020, the concerned should observe the proceedings.

Mazhai Madha Church - myth floated-complex

The case should be argued/conducted properly: As pointed out the Court ordered to conduct a proper survey and report to the Court on March 23, 2020. But, the general public does not know what will happen. Who would appear/depose before the Judges, what details they submit etc. “We will redeem temples, reclaim, recover temples,” Temple protection Committees and so on. But, I could not find that any one of them filing a petition to tag themselves in the case. From 25-02-2020 to 23-03-2020, what happened is also not known to the public. Therefore, the case should be argued properly, As the church has already spent crores, they do not mind in spending moe to win the case, as their influence at all levels is well-known.  But, who would support Sothuppakkam R. Raja is not known. There has been one version that the area was leased to them for 99 years lease. If that is the case, who would unlease it? Therefore, as this petition has been in the court, it is right time that people like Subramanyam Swamy to take up and argue, as otherwise, for some flimsy technical reason, the petition would be rejected and the involved would be absolved from all the illegal and criminal activities, as pointed out above.

The 31st Plenary Assembly of the Conference of the Catholic Bishops of India (CCBI) of the Latin Church held in January 2019

The support extended to this illegal Church from Archbishop to the Vatican: A Catholic website, “Indian Catholic Matters – A New Home for the Community” gives the following details[4].  Inaugurating the 31st Plenary Assembly of the Conference of the Catholic Bishops of India (CCBI) of the Latin Church, in Chennai on January 9, 2019 [Wednesday], Archbishop Giambattista Diquattro, the Apostolic Nuncio to India and Nepal, exhorted the Church in India to pay attention to the needs of the humanity. His Eminence Oswald Cardinal Gracias, in his presidential address, made an appeal to the Church in India to revitalise the Evangelization and added to it he insisted “our Evangelization should be full of life, full of love for mission.” Archbishop Anil Cuoto, the Secretary-General read the annual report of the Conference.

Archbishop George added India needs the Church and the Church needs India. The Inaugural session began with the lighting of the lamp by the dignitaries.

Hillock encroached,CBCI discussed about it Jan.2019-1

Why Mazhai Madha Church is important and significant[5]: Most Rev. Dr. A. Neethinathan the Bishop of Chingleput in his welcome address listed out the reasons why Chingleput is the right place for this 31st Assembly, as it is the land of St. Thomas the Apostle, the Apostle of India and has as part of its diocese the Holy Hill of His Martyrdom. “The patron saint of the diocese St. Joseph, father figure of the Church who guards the Church. Mazhai Malai Madha our co-patroness the mother of the Church – who accompanied the early Church,” he said. Chingleput Diocese which comprises of the civil district of Kancheepuram is the place of other religious people live majority and provides us with the opportunity to be Joy of the Gospel. The seven days meeting of the Bishops will discuss the Theme “The Joy of the Gospel” and will look at the new forms of evangelization and the ways and means – to foster the Evangelization. The assembly will also discuss the matters affecting the Latin Catholic Church in India. There are 132 dioceses and 189 Bishops of the Latin Church in India. The Conference of the Catholic Bishops in India (CCBI) is the largest Episcopal conference in Asia and fourth in the world.

Do the Hindus have such congregation, commitment and work?: The Christians or Mohammedans or opposite ideologists have been working with commitment and highly professional with sophisticated training. Do the Hindus have such training and professionalism? Do the Hintutwa guys could match these people? Most of the guys appear whenever BJP is in power do something, earn money, stabilize themselves and keep quiet. If the BJP is out, they too disappear. But, the opposite ideologists have not been like that. They work continuously or committed people carry on the work for years. As otherwise, all these things could not happen, in spite of their sexual crimes, pedophile offences and other law-breaking sins or sinful law-breakings. So what is the response of Hindus?

3000 Hindus converting to Islam in Coimbatore: A Communal drama, strategic plan or politicized agenda? [2]

Nagai Tiruvalluvan, Bagavi nexus Dec.2019

He is the Nagai Thiruvalluvan having nexus with Mohammedans and trying to induce SC Hindus to get converted to Islam with agenda.

Ilaveni respecting Palani Baba tomb-1

Worshipping, respecting and garlanding tombs are halal / forbidden in fundamentalist Islam, yet, Thoruvalluvan does and the Mohammedans keep quite!

Whether they converted or not?: Alleging threat by police, a recent convert Raiz, previously Ravichandran, said, “Those who are converting legally are being threatened by the police[1]. As a result, there are people who can’t talk about the conversion openly.” There are some people who shy away from their conversions fearing authorities[2]. But the youth of the area seem to be more vocal and don’t pay heed to still being called by their caste names.” However, this move by the Dalit outfit has angered a section of the villagers. They claim that only a handful of them, belonging to the Dalit outfit, have converted and are spreading rumours that thousands are converting[3]. Eashwaran, a resident of Mettupalayam said, “They have linked the 17 deaths to Islam conversion[4]. They said 3000 will convert. Residents of this particular locality are like one big family. We are not planning to convert to another religion. They (Tamil Puligal Katchi outfit) are spreading wrong news[5]. “We believe in Lord Vishnu. We will never convert to any religion. All people here are like my family. No one here will convert,” added Kannama, another resident. Thus, suddenly, conflicting reports are also coming. So what happened, whether SCs converted or not?

Thiruvalluvan arrested, Muslim speaker
Converted Muslim asked BC (Backward Class) certificate [August 2019]: Pointing out that neither during his conversion to Islam, nor during the publication of his conversion in the Tamil Nadu Government Gazette, he has mentioned anything regarding the sub-sect Labbai, the Madras high court dismissed a petition filed by a person seeking a direction to the Tahsildar, Thirukkazhukundram, Kancheepuram district, to issue Community Certificate to him, his wife and his children as BC (Backward Class) Muslim Labbai[6]. Dismissing the petition filed by Rilvan, a division bench comprising Justices R. Subbiah and C. Saravanan said initially at the time of conversion into Islam, the petitioner did not particularly mention about the sub-sect “Labbai”, which dis-entitles him from claiming the relief of issuance of community certificate to the petitioner and his family, more particularly, in the Jammath, he did not mention his sub-sect while conversion to Islam.

Thiruvalluvan arrested, Muslim speaker alur nawas

Chettiyar marrying SC and converting to Muslim lebbai [August 2019]: According to the petitioner, he is a Hindu by birth and originally belonged to BC 24 Manai Telugu Chettiyar Community. His marriage was solemnised with his wife Ramjiya, whose original name is Ramya, who belongs to Scheduled Caste (SC) Hindu Adi Dravida Community and due to their wedlock, two children were born to them, namely Harshat (previous name Kavin Raji) aged about 13 years and Harshidha, aged about 4 years. On October 15, 2012, out of his own volition, the petitioner got converted to Muslim Labbai religion from the Hindu religion. After conversion, he was blessed with the second child. Subsequently, on March 23, 2016, he had published his religious conversion in the Official Gazette. On March 28, 2018, he applied for issuance of community certificate to the Tahsildar and he sought the Tahsildar to issue BC community certificate as per a G.O dated July 29, 2008. But the authorities denied the same on the ground that they could issue only as converted Muslim. Subsequently, the Revenue Divisional Officer also rejected his representation. Hence, he filed the present petition.

Thiruvalluvan arrested, Muslim speaker jawahirulla
Court cannot order to give any certificate for caste or class: The bench said the petitioner got converted to Muslim religion on October 15, 2012, with sub-sect Labbai. Neither during the conversion to Islam nor during the publication of his conversion in the Tamil Nadu Government Gazette, he has mentioned anything regarding the sub-sect Labbai. Even in the certificate given by Pudupattinam Zamath, there was no mention of the sub-sect Labbai. Hence, the petitioner will not be entitled to Backward Class Community Certificate merely on conversion, the bench added. The bench said only if there was an endorsement by the Jamath indicating the Backward Class as Labbai, the community certificate can be issued by mentioning the said sub-sect. In the absence of such endorsement by the Jamath, the authorities cannot issue community certificate as sought for by the petitioner. Though the petitioner relies on G.O dated July 29, 2008, stating that Hindu BC community can convert to any of the seven sects of Islam as mentioned therein in the list, in which Labbai was one among them, in the absence of specific sub-sect during the conversion to Islam, he has to be treated as Muslim which comes under the Forward community. Even during the enquiry conducted by the Revenue Inspector, Nerumbur on his petition to RDO, the petitioner simply stated that his family embraced Muslim religion and that they changed their names as Muslim names, even though they published their names in the government gazette. “Hence, for the above reasons, now this court cannot give such a direction prayed for by the petitioner,” the bench added.

Thiruvalluvan arrested, DK speaker Covai RK

If SC certificate were cancelled, a Muslim can become BC!: Dr. Raja Mohammed (Reg.No.00102119) belonged to Muslim Labbai included in the list of BC-M on his conversion from Hindu to Muslim. According to clarification received from the Government, in the absence of any orders issued by the Government in respect of converts from Hindu to Islam, they would be considered as “Others”.  He was SC and after conversion, he became lebbai. The Tahsildar issued a conversion certificate and also community certificate, declaring him to be a member of Backward Class. The community certificate, showing his community, as Scheduled Caste, was cancelled. The court decided that he was BC only, as the SC certificate was cancelled[7]. So the SC converted Mohammedan has two options for reservations – as a lebbai, he can get the 3.5% of reservation within reservation policy introduced by Karunanidhi or they can claim BC by cancelling the SC / Lebbai certificate, yet claiming to be a Muslim!

SC threat to convert to Islam, Coimbatoe-praying

This photo published by Deccan Chronicle proves as to how the secular police stand to facilitate the Mohammedans to encroach the public platform and roads!

Jamath issues Lebbai caste or Backward class certificate?: First of the intriguing fact has been how Jamat can issue a certificate for the SC convert Mohammedan and it could be equated with the SC or untouchable. The Mohammedan law does not have such authority and therefore, the TN Muslims stand and issuance of such certificate is unconstitutional. Moreover, the court has rightly noted, “Neither during the conversion to Islam, nor during the publication of his conversion in the Tamil Nadu Government Gazette, he has mentioned anything regarding the sub-sect Labbai. Even in the certificate given by Pudupattinam Zamath, there was no mention of the sub-sect Labbai. Hence, the petitioner will not be entitled to Backward Class Community Certificate merely on conversion.” The churches have been issuing birth, baptism, marriage and death certificates and not caste or class certificates. Had it been there so, for converted SC issue, they would not go to Supreme Court. Of course, though, Muslims used to claim, but, they never pursued legally, as it might go against the fundaments of Islam. Of course, the elite and rich categories never want such reservation, as it would affect their interests.

ECI Church at Tiruneermalai demolished as per the Court order, as it was built on encroached land illegally!

ECIchurch demolished, 06-03-2020

Ezra’s method of encroaching land and appropriate it with political clout: The ECI has been in the habit of encroaching “Porumboke[1]” government lands and building Church. Ezra Sargunam in his book, he has openly urged his followers to do so violating acts and rules and they have been behaving in this way for the last 50 years.  Earlier in his book, he has openly recorded that there is nothing wrong in land grabbing[2]. That is whatever is done in the name of Jesus, it is allowed. Again, there have been court cases, involving him with land grabbing. As he has been close to Karunanidhi, he has been manipulating and getting along. However, in between, there have been court cases, where, he was pulled up and exposed. In Gujarat case also, it was exposed and Karunanidhi nexus revealed openly[3]. He was about to be arrested for trespassing lad, but, Karunanidhi ordered him to return[4].

ECIchurch ordered to be demolished, 06-03-2020

Church planting in India by any means: The UK website, typically, describes his activities, “Bishop Sargunam is well known for his work in India and has a very clear vision. His Great Commission is to plant 100,000 churches, disciple 10 million people and to train and equip 30,000 frontline Church planters by their centenary year in 2054[5]. This may sound impossible to many but he said their trust is in the Holy Spirit which they are constantly experiencing. He also went on to say ” We expect great things from God and attempt great things from God” just like Williams Carey, the father of the Modern Missionary Movement. Bishop Sargunam said they have a clear track record of achieving their goals as they started with the aim of planting 100 churches in the 70’s, then moved on to 1,000 churches in the 90’s when ‘God’s promise to us was, “a little one shall become a thousand”, which we achieved, and so we went on to dream big and open 2,000 churches by the year 2000’ which, by God’s grace, they achieved[6].

ECIchurch demolished, christians ruckus 06-03-2020

Ezra Sargunam explains how to encroach poramboke land and construct a church: As pointed out in his book, he has explained how a poramboke land can be encroached, occupied and owned in a step by step strategy[7].

  1. Just assemble at a place under the guise of conducting prayer [after identifying it as poramboke land].
  2. Conduct regularly and put up a thatched shed [to claim some sort of ownership on it].
  3. Convert into pacca gudisai – thatched-roofed house [implying permanent structure put up and awaiting electrical connection and all].
  4. Then convert it into a big thatched hall with the help of local police [electrical connection given, Patta given].
  5. Then build the structure with bricks and roof with ACC [illegal construction completed].

Ezra Sargunam claims that the DMK would help[8] and thus none could question his activities. It has to be noted that American evangelists appreciated his illegal activities[9] without going into the details of such illegal activities. Now the demolition of illegal church news has come in the media. Would they realize, repent and correct themselves? No, they twist it into a manner in a rabble-rousing manner, “Christians persecuted in India, churches demolished,” and so on, suppressing all illegal activities, violation of Acts and Rules etc.

HC ordered to demolish Tiruneermalai ECI church in Jan 2020 DTNext

ECI encroached Citlapakkan lake and constructed church – 2017: In the latter half of November 2017, as bulldozers razed some unauthorised religious structures that stood tall on Chitlapakkam Lake for years, hordes of curious onlookers gathered on the streets, pausing their daily chores. Led by senior IAS officer P Amudha, the Public Works Department demolished a few temples, a mosque and a church that residents have been emotionally and spiritually connected to, for decades. On the banks of a water body in Anakaputhur, an ECI church has found space since many years[10]. A large portion of the lake was encroached upon by the Anakaputhur Municipality itself when it constructed overhead water tanks, parks and public toilets. Explaining the pattern of encroachment, David Manohar of NGO Arappor Iyakkam says[11], “An entire residential locality emerged on the water body, after which a church was constructed. No objections were raised against the religious structures as they are partners in crime. Religious emotion plays a role too.

Ezra Sargunam with....ECI foreign funds received
ECI Tiruneermalai Church –January 2020, HC ordered to demolish: The Madras High Court has directed the Pallavaram Tahsildar to remove an encroachment put up by the Evangelical Church of India (ECI) on government hill poramboke in Tiruneermalai within eight weeks[12]. A division bench comprising Justice M Sathyanarayanan and Justice R Hemalatha gave the direction on a contempt petition moved by one V Balachandran, alleging wilful disobedience and non-compliance by the Land Administration Secretary of the order dated June 19, 2019, which had directed the Revisional Authority to dispose of the revision filed by ECI challenging the demolition order. After ECI encroached the land and constructed a church, a representation was submitted in 2002 to the Kancheepuram Collector, who in turn directed the Tambaram Tahsildar to evict and report within 48 hours. In the legal battle that followed, the court had held in 2010 and 2012 that the church has to be removed. Despite that, and even after the latest order in 2019, the encroachment was not removed, said the petition. After perusing the proceedings by the Collector, Land Administration Commissioner and the order of the Revisional Authority dated January 8, the bench led by Justice Sathyanarayanan said: “The ECI, with absolute impunity, had encroached upon the land belonging to the government and not stopping with that, has also put up a wholly unauthorised structure in the form of a religious structure.” Directing its demolition, the bench asked the police to provide protection for removing it. The bench also directed the Pallavaram Tahsildar to verify religious and other structures on government land, and file a status report on the removal of encroachments and demolish unauthorised structures. The plea was posted to March 6, 2020, for reporting compliance[13].

Ezra illegal activities appreciated by US evangelists 1990

March 2020, as per the court order, it is demolished: As the case was coming up on March 6, 2020, the authorities got alerted and tried to do something. Thus, they had gone there with police support and started demolishing as per the court directions. The revenue department officials had gone there under the Tashildhar Rajendra, with JCB crane and all. Police Assistant Commissioners Asokan, Sahadevan also preset with 100 policemen. As usual, the Christians tried to create a scene, but, they were evicted, arrested and sent in a van. Of course, evening, they were released. However, Ezra Sargunam was not seen in the context and his response not heard. No media goes to him and asks his reaction, about the court action. None asked him as to how he could grab land and the court’s order is also not respected by him and his followers.

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.

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.

The Seven arrested by NIA, plot to kill Hindu leaders and ISIS link! Kerala exporting Mohammeda youth to ISIS after nuns and pastors!

December 26, 2018

The Seven arrested by NIA, plot to kill Hindu leaders and ISIS link! Kerala exporting Mohammeda youth to ISIS after nuns and pastors!

 

Why the Coimbatore terror activities are downplayed?: When the people are made to focus on politics with propaganda, implant of fake news created through social media, media conclaves and so on, important news threatening the safety and security of common-men are sidelined, ignored and even suppressed. Thus, the links of Coimbatore arrested men with ISIS, etc., have been marginalized by the media and daily debates have been going on frivolous issues. Coimbatore has been simmering with the Islamic terrorist activities with the proximity with Kerala, gold smuggling and hawala activities. Unfortunately, or otherwise, Kerala’s link with Coimbatore in ISIS activities have been a regular feature. None could forget that David Coleman Headley stayed at Munaru Guest House with all facilities to him, so that he could get information to carry out 26/11 attack in Bombay.

19-12-2018: NIA raids the houses of seven jailed plotters: A team of National Investigation Agency officials from Kochi in Kerala conducted raids at seven places in Chennai, Coimbatore and Tindivanam as part of their probes into a conspiracy to kill Hindu leaders in Tamil Nadu and Kerala[1]. The raids, which went on for 4 to 10 hours on 19-12-2018, Wednesday, were conducted at Otteri, Mahakavi Bharathi Nagar and Pallavaram in Chennai and at Ukkadam, Kunniyamuthur and NH Road in Coimbatore and in Tindivanam[2]. The NIA team of the Kerala police recently arrested a 7-member gang under for conspiring to kill Hindu Makkal Katchi founder-president Arjun Sampath and Sakthi Sena leader Anbu Mani[3]. From the gang, the NIA team learned about supporters holed up in various parts of Tamil Nadu who were to assist them in their operation[4]. The NIA team obtained a search warrant from the NIA special court in Poonamallee and continued surprise checks[5]. They had invoked provisions of the Indian Penal Code and Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act against the accused[6].

 

FIR No 977/ 2018 registered: The case was originally registered as FIR No 977/ 2018 at B3 Variety Hall Police Station, Coimbatore City on September 1, 2018, under Sections 143 (Unlawful Assembly) and 120-B (Criminal Conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code besides provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act against the seven arrested accused persons[7]. And the raids carried on now, consequent to further investigation[8]. A group of seven persons from different parts of Tamil Nadu formed a terrorist gang with allegiance to the proscribed terrorist organization ISIS and had entered into a criminal conspiracy to kill some Hindu leaders of Coimbatore, thereby threatening the communal harmony besides the security and sovereignty of India[9].

What recovered at the houses of seven arrested: the details of the houses of the seven arrested and the material recovered are as follows:

  1. S Shamsudeen: According to the police, at 7 am on 19-12-2018, a five-member team of NIA carried out a raid in the residence of S Shamsudeen (20), at Parasurama Street, Pallavaram. His parents live in the house and the search lasted until 8.30 am. However, officials did not disclose if they seized anything from the house.
  2. S Salavudeen: Simultaneously, another team of NIA raided the house of S Salavudeen (25) at Dargha Cross Street at Otteri from 6.45 to 8.20 am. Sources said the NIA took two mobile phones, a DVD, a bank pass book and a copy of the Quran.
  3. I Jaffer Shaddique Ali: The house of another accused, I Jaffer Saqid Ali (29) at Pudu Nagar, MKB Nagar, was searched for two hours by a separate team.
  4. Ashique: at Variety Hall Road.
  5. Faizal Rahman: Faizal at GM Nagar were searched. At Faizal’s house, a 21 cm long dagger, unaccounted cash amounting to Rs 2.16 lakh was seized along with Islamic literature and letters written in the letter pad of a Muslim outfit.
  6. S Ismail (25): of Tindivanam in Villupuram district. Inquiries revealed that Ismayil, the mastermind behind the murder conspiracy was a member of the banned terrorist organisation.
  7. Sahul Hameed alias Anwar (23), from Coimbatore

They had no previous enmity with the Hindu leaders but decided to kill inspired by the IS module. They all had befriended each other through Facebook and WhatsApp, while sharing information inspired on similar ideology[10]. As a larger network of terror links was suspected, the NIA took up the investigation into the case. A week ago, Arjun Sampath appeared before the NIA sleuths and submitted evidence for death threats; he received calls from various anonymous numbers[11].

Arjun Sampath deposed before NIA and given details: Recently, Arjun Sampath appeared before the NIA at Race Course, Coimbatore, and gave a detailed account of the threats he got over phone and submitted evidence. NIA also carried out raids in Coimbatore and Tindivanam. The residence of Ashik at Variety Hall Road and Faizal at GM Nagar in Coimbatore were raided. Sahul’s house in Kuniyamuthur and Ismail’s place at Tindivanam were searched[12]. It is alleged that Ismail of Tindivanam was a secret member of ISIS who passed on information to others through a social media website[13]. The men, police found, did not know each other personally but communicated through social media. In Coimbatore, houses of I Jaffer Shaddique Ali in Pudu Nagar, Ashique at Variety Hall Road and Faizal at GM Nagar were searched. At Faizal’s house, unaccounted cash amounting to Rs 2.16 lakh was seized along with Islamic literature and letters written in the letter pad of a Muslim outfit.On 2 September, these Muslim youths were arrested along with two others, identified as R Ashik (25) of Coimbatore and S Ismail (25) of Tindivanam in Villupuram district. Based on their confessions, the police arrested Faizal Rahman of GM Nagar, who worked as an auto driver, and Sahul Hameed alias Anwar (23), from Coimbatore. The men are currently lodged at Coimbatore Central Prison.

Home-grown terrorism, non-state players and ISIS recruits: Nowadays, the terrorism has been secularized and differentiated also. “Home-grown terrorism” is talked about, as if “foreign-grown” has been different or less harmful. If a terrorist, whether Indian born or foreign born is identified in the context of J&K, where, it is implied that a terrorist could have been hailing from –

  1. Indian side Kashmir
  2. Pakistan side Kashmir
  3. Pakistan itself.

Hence, the categorization of  “non-state players” and “state players” have been started to be used. Earlier, “State terrorism,” “state sponsored terrorism” and such other expressions were used to stress that terrorism itself is encouraged, promoted and sponsored by a state. Now, after J&K terror activities, 26/11 etc., as ISIS has started recruiting Mohammedan youth from Kerala and other places, perhaps, Indian might be blamed for exporting such youth involving in ISIS. Then UN, USA and other statistical figures given would include – ISIS terrorists –

  1. Recruited from India.
  2. Killed hailing from India.
  3. Brought into ISIS territory through Afghanistan from India.
  4. Intruded into Syria, through Turkey and so on from India.

So just like, Kerala exporting nuns, pastors etc., it has now credibility of exporting Mohammedan youth for ISIS! Really, it is god’s own country, thus its sons and daughters are exported in this way to aboard for holy acts, services and war also.

Urban Naxals plotting unrest, supporting elite intellectuals and unconnected emeritus experts petitioning for their release – but Hindutva experts keeping quite! [2]

August 31, 2018

Urban Naxals plotting unrest, supporting elite intellectuals and unconnected emeritus experts petitioning for their release – but Hindutva experts keeping quite! [2]

5 renowned persons filed petition to release U-naxals

The emeritus, elite and enthralling status of the petitioners: The five petitioners who moved the Supreme Court on 29-08-2018, Wednesday against the arrest of the five activists were described by the prosecution as “strangers” who could not seek bail for “someone else”. The five petitioners may be “strangers” to the BJP government but not to the nation[1]:

  1. one is among the foremost historians in India – Romila Thapar[2],
  2. another is an economist honoured with the Padma Bhushan – Devaki Jain[3],
  3. the third a professor emerita and Oxford scholar – Praphat Patnaik[4],
  4. the fourth a sociology professor – Satish Deshpande[5] and
  5. the fifth a renowned civil liberties crusader who happens to be the daughter of the late Field Marshal, Sam Manekshaw – Maja Daruwala[6].

None of them has ever been linked to the Maoist insurgency, before or during the era of “Urban Naxals” or “Half-Maoists”. Below is an introduction to those who consider Romila Thapar, Devaki Jain, Prabhat Patnaik, Satish Deshpande and Maja Daruwala as “strangers”.

Dissent safety valve of democracy - SC

Dissent safety valve of democracy – Supreme Court: Earlier on 29-08-2018, Wednesday, the Supreme Court issued notices to the Centre and the Maharashtra government and directed the Pune police to keep the five accused under “house arrest” till the next date of hearing on September 6, 2018. The directions of a division bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justice DY Chandrachud came in a public interest litigation filed by eminent historian Romila Thapar and four others challenging the arrests before the apex court. The Court said that dissent is the safety valve of democracy[7]. Hearing over the arrests were also held in the Delhi High Court and a sessions court in Pune. The Delhi HC, which had on Tuesday stayed the transit remand of activist Gautam Navlakha, has said that it would examine the legality of the Maharashtra police action[8]. The court also slammed police for failing to produce the translated version of the FIR and said it was yet to hear the grounds of arrest. Varavara Rao, Arun Fereira and Vernon Gonsalves, on the other hand, were produced by Pune police at the sessions court there.

Councillors for Urban naxals, Prashant Bushan etc

Media picks holes in the Police proceednigs: The document – a remand report – gave 16 reasons why the rights activists should be in police custody, but had none of the dramatic claims made by the public prosecutor in court, NDTV has learnt[9]. The police document, accessed exclusively by NDTV, claimed all activists are members of the Communist Party of India (Maoist) and set up city units of the outlawed group. However, the petition made no reference to key charges made verbally in court and communicated to the media such as a plot to assassinate Prime Minister Narendra Modi or facilitating Maoist funding and weapons via Nepal[10]. When it is communicated to the media, what is the claim of “The police document, accessed exclusively by NDTV” to blame police! The document also did not mention the clashes in January between Dalits and upper caste Maratha organisations at Bhima-Koregaon near Pune, which they were linked to.  So, it is intriguing to note why NDTV wants to dictate the police to conduct their proceedings.

Comrade R letter to Com Prakash 18-04-2017

If the plot-letters Two are fake, why, how and who created?: letters recovered by the police reveal the plot to kill Modi and other details to procure arms etc.[11], and therefore, if the Maoist defenders accuse / allege that they are “fake letters”, they should explain why their comrades have been keeping such “fake letters.” Moreover, the second one has been an “e-mail letter,” and print out taken giving more details[12]. Then, why such fake data are kept in their computer – a question that has to be answered. Creating fake documents, of this nature is also a crime, particularly, of this nature, implications and the issue involved. The previous proceedings clearly prove that they have been advocating violence as a means to achieve their “revolution.” Therefore, only, courts can decide the issue and not the media, demonstration or any influential talks etc.

Letter of Rona Wilson addressed to Comrade-M

Letter recovered from Rona Wilson:The letter dated 18-04-2017 addressed to “Comrade Prakash” by R is as follows:

“Dear comrade Prakash,

Red salutes!

We received your last letter (20/3). Regarding the current situation here Arun, Vernon and others are equally concerned about the two line struggle that is slowly taking shape on the urban front. Followed by the very unfortunate demise of Bijoy da. He was a strong leader with great vision and selfless devotion to the party and the Red Revolution! His leadership was greatly needed in today’s critical times. Things were far better before Prashant’s egoist agenda took over the larger interest of the party and the political prisoners. Com. Saibaba had raised this issue with you back in 2013 when Prashant revolted against Saibaba. We think that in one way the Gadchiroli court’s judgment has helped by restraining Prashant in doing further harm to the Party. With that said, we are working tirelessly to put up a strong defense for Saibaba. Every possible legal help in favour of the jailed comrades is being sought. HB has been given all the responsibility to coordinate programmes and protests to raise public opinion in our favour. On 20th April we will organise another program under the banner – Committee for the Defense and Release of GN Saibaba. We will leave no stones unturned in providing relief to all pol. prisoners. Com. Ashok B., Amit B., Seema and Sudhir have strongly pitched for more regular meetings of CRPP EC. It will facilitate smoother coordination of numerous pending cases in Delhi, MH, JH, Odisha, CHH. On the other side Com. Siraj has shown willingness to contribute for the party in all possible ways. He has been studying the party literature, resolutions and the party constitution for the past several years. Despite challenging situations he is ready for second APT cross-over. This time I would like to send another comrade with Siraj. His CV is in the memory chip with this letter. Sometime in last year Vishnu had met Com. Basanta to facilitate the deal. At the time Com. Kishan was unable to meet directly. I hope by now you have received details of the meeting and requirement of 8cr for annual supply of M4’s with 400000 rounds. Please convey your decision. Defeating Hindu fascism has been our core agenda and a major concern for the party.

Several leaders from the secret cells as well as open organisations have raised this issue very strongly. We are working to consolidate ties with like-minded organsiations, pol. Parties, representatives of minorities across the country. Modi led Hindu fascist regime is bulldozing it’s way into the lives of indigenous adivasis. In spite of big defeats like Bihar and West Bengal, Modi has successfully established BJP govt in more than 15 states. If this phase continues then it would mean immense trouble for the party on all fronts. Greater suppression of dissent and more brutal form of Mission 2016 (OGH). Com. Kisanand few other senior comrades have proposed concrete steps to end Modi-raj. We are thinking along the lines of another Rajiv Gandhi type incident. It sounds suicidal and there is a good chance that we might fail but we feel that the party PB/CC must deliberate over our proposal. Targeting his road shows could be one effective strategy. We collectively believe that survival of the party is supreme to all sacrifices. Rest in the next letter.

Dubious History of Urban naxals

Why Hindutwa professors, right wing experts lack in matching Romila Thapar and other comrades?: Romila Thapar and company have come out openly and filed petition in the Supreme Court. However, no Hindutva historian, emeritus expert,  professor or anybody come forward to file a petition to support their ideology or implead then to be a party, as their counterparts have filed petition. In fact, there have been many such beneficiaries under ND regime who have been enjoying or enjoyed awards, rewards, foreign travels, postings as member of ICHR, ICCSR etc. But, none of them responded, but, keeping quite. Why cannot they match Romil Thapar or other emeritus experts? In what way, are they lacking and lagging behind their ideology or expertise? Some have gleefully have written books, “Why I support Modi?,” whereas, there, they have been plotting to kill Modi, as the media reports point out. So why this indifference, callousness or cowardice? When the ideological war has been declared and going on openly, what is the use of hiding behind and keeping silence.

A petition against her was filed with the Kluge Chair in Countries and Cultures of the South at the Library of Congress in 2003, alleging that she was “Marxist and anti-Hindu”.

Urban Naxals plotting unrest, supporting elite intellectuals and unconnected emeritus experts petitioning for their release! [1]

 Urban naxals or witch-hunt

Bhima-Koregoan violence and the consequent arrests [December 2017 to June 2018]: The June 2018 incidences, arrests with the Bhima-Koregoan violence have been discussed earlier in June 2018 in the blogs- in two parts, pointing out the role of Congress in it[1].  Everyone knows that the Bhima-Koregoan incidences resulted in violence, spreading to Mumbai incurring loss of life and properties[2]. The anti-Modi lobbyists attended the functions and spoke without mincing words[3]. Incidentally, last July 2017, in the International Ambedkar Conference held in Bangalore, some of them had attended. When they discussed, they delved upon the issue of ousting BJP out of power[4]. Of course, one of them tried to oppose Congress also, for name sake. Consequent to the filing of FIR , police searchers, recovery of incriminating documents, “urban naxals” arrested were – Rona Wilson, Sudhir Dhawle, Surendra Gadling, Soma Sen and Mahesh Raut. As they have been elite, sophisticated and experts in their ideology, propaganda and perverted intelligence, they have been trying to divide people under the guise of right to think, express, speak, write and so on. In the name of “human rights,” they comfortably forget  the rights of the affected.

Arrested Maoists - Rola Wilson, Mahesh raul

Plot to kill Modi? [Letter dated 18-04-2017 recovered from Rona Wilson laptop]: The nation wide raids conducted at the homes of prominent activists who allegedly have naxalite links is probably one of the biggest exercises. The raids were conducted at Delhi, Hyderabad, Ranchi, Goa and Mumbai were conducted after the police went through 25,000 GB of data seized from five arrested persons[5]. The police while going through the data stumbled upon the names of several persons, whose homes were raided on 28-06-2018. It was found that these persons living in the cities were either directly or closely associated with the naxalites. Very strong links have emerged, said an official part of the exercise to OneIndia. The data that was analysed in connection with the Elgaar Parishad case revealed that these persons were closely associated with the banned CPI (Maoist)[6]. They were allegedly involved in conspiring and taking part in movements with an intention of creating violence, officials also said. It may be recalled that it was during the same investigation that the police had also found that some persons were conspiring to assassinate Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The police also raided the residences of left wing activists, Varavara Rao in Hyderabad, Vernon Gonsalves who was arrested under Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act in 2007, activist Arun Ferreira in Mumbai, trade union activist Sudha Bharadwaj and human rights activist Gautam Navalakha in Delhi. The house of Stan Swamy in Ranchi, Anand Teltumbede in Goa was also searched. Anand Teltumbede attended the Congress conference held at Bangalore in July 2017.

Arrested Maoists - Sudhir Dhawale, Shoma Sen

Earlier arrested – Sudhur Dhawle, Rona Wilson, Surendra Gadling etc in June 2018: On June 6, 2018, the police had arrested Sudhir Dhawale, leader of Mumbai-based Republican Panthers Jati Antachi Chalwal, Delhi-based activist Rona Wilson of Committee of Release of Political Prisoners, Nagpur lawyer Surendra Gadling of Indian Association of People’s Lawyers, Nagpur University professor Shoma Sen, and Mahesh Raut. The name of Rao had come up when the Pune police arrested, Surendra Gadling from Nagpur in June in connection with the Elgaar Parishad case. A letter was recovered from Gadling, in which Rao had complimented him for the success of the attack launched by naxalites in Gadchiroli. There were also letters discussing the assassination of Modi which were recovered from Rona Wilson, also an accused in the case. In addition to this the police also raided Fereira’s house in Thane. The police say that he is an alleged sympathiser of naxalites and had been arrested in the past as well. He was however discharged in all the cases.

Urban naxals detained on 28-08-2018

The Police appraised the position: The moment Uraban naxals were arrested, as expected, their supporters from all intelligent groups stated opposing. Their propaganda has been so offensive, the Pune Deputy Commissioner of Police Shirish Sardeshpande had to arrange a press meet and clarify the position. During the press meet held in the city’s Shanivarwada area, said that the preparations including mobilization of funds and inciting the masses, were on since long before the Elgar Parishad was involved[7]. Elaborating, he pointed out that the alleged plot came to light after the police analysed the electronic devices, documents and other “highly incriminating evidence” seized from the five arrested persons, showing their links with the banned Communist Party of India (Maoist)[8]. This is the first official reaction from the Pune police justifying Tuesday’s arrests of –

  1. Sudha Bharadwaj, lawyer-activist,
  2. Gautam Navlakha, civil liberties activists,
  3. Vernon Gonsalves,
  4. Arun Ferreira and
  5. Varavara Rao

from different parts of India, triggering a massive outcry. However, it is ridiculous to think that the police could arrest the “experts” just like that.

varvara rao, navalka, teltumbde

Should police reveal all evidences to the media?: The Police commissioner told, “We have scanned computer hard disks, pen drives, memory cards, resolutions of meetings, documents, emails and other elaborate communications between the members of the banned CPI (Maoist) and the five arrested accused,” he said. The CPI (Maoist) had formed the “All India United Front (AIUF)” as per a resolution passed by its Eastern Regional Bureau (ERB) — an underground unit — and had hatched the conspiracy to topple the legally elected government. They analyzed 25,000 GB data to get the details. Efforts were underway to launch a similar front (AIUF) through the Elgar Parishad and included plans to collect funds, assign responsibilities, and acquire arms for the larger conspiracy. Howeve, he cannot reveal all the relied upon documents to the media, as the media people have been aiding and abetting the terrorists by sharing all information. In fact, had the arrested been really, involved, they could easily destroy such evidences incriminating. In fact, already, they started asserting that the “relied upon documents” are fake.

varvara rao

Naxals involved in killing innocent people: Besides, the evidence also reveals plans of the “urban Naxals” to influence and radicalize the youth and students, arms training and other details, he said. He revealed that the Maoists have been involved in many unlawful activities leading to the killings of a large number of security forces and civilians, besides links with other like-minded organisations, which were not named. In Tuesday’s [28-08-2018] operation, he said, a total of nine places were raided and the said five activists were arrested. The intellectuals should respond to their methodology of exploiting violence, killing and sabotaging to solve their problems.

5 renowned persons filed petition to release U-naxals

Five eminent experts, but unconnected filed petition to release the arrested: Among those who have moved court include Romila Thapar, Prabhat Patnaik, Satish Deshpande, Maya Darnall[9]. How these came together has been surprising and intriguing. In the petition, which was mentioned by senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi, the historian and other right activists have sought release of all activists who have been arrested during raids in connection with the Bhima-Koregaon case[10].  They have also sought an independent probe into the arrests[11]. The petitioners have also urged the apex court to seek explanation from Maharashtra for ‘sweeping round of arrest’ in the case. The raids were carried out as part of a probe into the violence between Dalits and the upper caste Peshwas at Koregaon-Bhima village near Pune after an event called Elgar Parishad, or conclave, on December 31 last year, 2017[12]. However, these were keeping quite for the 31-12-2017 violence and June 2018 arrest of their collegues. Now, it is not known what compelled them to come together and file a petition in Supeme Court.
