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.

Thailand Muslim preachers came to Tamil Nadu to propagate: According to media reports[3], Erode district administration has prohibited the public from using those streets and has warned of strict action against the shops which violate the Collector’s orders, perhaps from 24-03-2020.

A group of seven tourists from Thailand had reached Erode on March 12 and they had spent time in three mosques in the city. The media and the Govt. officials continue to mention them as “tourists” without revealing their identities. Later, one of them caught a fever and was admitted to the Coimbatore Medical College Hospital, where he later succumbed. His coronavirus tests had reportedly returned negative. Two other tourists from the same group were tested positive for COVID-19 recently and are being isolated and treated in IRT Medical college hospital, Perundurai, Erode district. A total of 136 people in Erode have been placed under home quarantine after the tourists tested positive and the district administration has also begun fixing identification stamps in front of the houses of those who have been quarantined.

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! [1]

March 22, 2020

The Christian illegal encroachment of Acharappakkam hillock portion and construction of Church complex disturbing ecology and the adjacent Hindu Temple! [1]

Hillock encroached, The Hindu 02-2020

How the media has been silent and biased: The English media has been silent about the illegal encroachments, unlawful constructions and dishonest land transactions of the Christians of every order from Archbishop to pastor. Perhaps, about the Acharapakkam encroachment, only, “The Hindu” has reported as follows[1], “A public interest litigation petition has been filed in the Madras High Court accusing the management of Malaimada church situated atop a hillock in Maduranthakam Taluk near here of encroaching upon adjoining areas including forest lands for construction of shops and other structures. 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. R. Raja, 45, a local resident, had filed the PIL petition with a plea to remove the encroachments. The petitioner claimed that the church itself had been constructed about five decades ago on a piece of land classified as Meikaal Poromboke (land meant for grazing). Thereafter, the management laid a road and began disturbing the ecology of the hill, he alleged and accused it of having constructed many shops last year. Unabated constructions had caused great damage to the animals on the hillock and also the archaeological sites on the foothills, he alleged”. The so-called legal correspondent[2] has no guts to give the past activities of the church leading to such legal proceedings initiated.

Lawrence Pius, Pushpam visit to hillock

The unblushing Christian liars started manufacturing myths: The Christians have been experts in manufacturing lies, converting them into myths and myths into stories and then traditional narratives and finally “history” through “quoted-quoted-quoted” methodology. Even, if proved, they have been unblushing liars and carry on, as they have to protect their status. They do not mind spending money also for such activities. Moreover, they have the support of corrupt government officials of various departments, undue political influence and an unethical gang of foreign elements also. As they have enough influence in the courts, judiciary and related departments and ministries, they manipulate and escape. There have been many classical Supreme and High Court judgments, but, kept in a low profile. Thus, the “Acharapakkam” illegal activities going on since the 2000s  were not discussed in the media. Of course, lakhs of people travelling to Tindivanam and beyond or coming to Chennai have been watching them. The onlookers might think, “the Christians would be behaving only in that way, what we can do,” and leave just like that. But, as this affair has exceeded limits, the media has reported.

Lawrence addressing at the hillock

How the “Mazhai madha” myth was created?: Their website gives the story as follows[3]: “In 1969 people experienced severe drought all over Tamilnadu particularly in Acharapakkam. Fr. A.Pushpam, the founder of this shrine had arranged for a car procession in honour of our Blessed Mother to intercede for the good shower of rain. When the car procession ended at a place called Nallayan Kundru there was a heavy downpour with thunder and lightning. This astonishing miracle touched everyone and in gratitude, they lovingly named our Blessed Mother as Mazhai Malai Madha and built a beautiful grotto. Rev. Fr. Pushpam who served as a Parish Priest from 1963 to 1973 rendered selfless service. With the same zeal Rev. Fr. Backiya Regis had served this Shrine for 10 years and made it a place of testimony to the faith of the multitudes that come there regularly. The Annual Feast is being celebrated on the first Saturday of October. Thousands of people belonging to various religions gather to express their love and devotion to the Blessed Mother. The shrine caters to the needs of the poor and the marginalized of the society by carrying out various social activities especially for the physically challenged. The Decree proclaiming Mazhai Malai Madha as the Second Patroness of the Diocese of Chingleput and raising the church dedicated to her to the status of a Diocesan shrine was promulgated by Rt. Rev. Dr. Neethinathan on 05th September 2003 in the presence of his Eminence Simon Cardinal Lourdusamy.”

Lawrence, Pushpan and another addressing at the hillock

Does the Melvaruvathur Temple Trust colludes with Mazhai Madha Church?: That Melmaruvathir Adi Parasakti Temple has been there nearby and lakhs of devotees from neighbouring states have been visiting the temple have been well-known. In fact, the Karnataka government allows special busses to come and return. Therefore, it is common for such devotees and tourist pilgrims to go to nearby interesting places. In fact, the bus driver and conductor do such canvassing. Moreover, Bangaru Adigalar, his son and family have been engaged in celebrating Christmas openly, dressing the Amman idol as “Mary carrying Jesus” and so on! The recent marriage also stunned many devotees. The movement of pasters from this church to the temple, participating in “religious harmony” functions have also been noted. Thus, the “Adi Parasakti Amman” and “Mazhai Matha” might be made sisters and new myths floated soon, as has been happening in Kerala. Of course, the myths floated in the case of fraudulent “thomas” have been well-known.

Mazhai Madha Church - massive constructions

The Acharapakkam encroachment coming to limelight in 2009[4]: There has been 1500 years old Pasypatheswarar Temple on the hillock. Perhaps, in 2004, the Christians planted a concrete cross on the other side. Then, they started lighting lights in the form of “Mariyee vazka” [Ave Maria, Hail Mary]. They reportedly built a small church and then demolished to build a bigger one. But, how these Christians could encroach the other side has been intriguing. Evidently, they violated the provisions of many acts and rules and the officials of Forest, Revenue, local Panchayat, Electricity Board officials aided and abetted them by giving illegal sanctions and connections. Thus, they slowly increased their buildings and enlarged their occupation. In fact, a local VAO had given a complaint to the police[5], but, nothing happened. Incidentally, the Christians started “Paunami” gatherings at the Church to compete with the devotees of the Vajagiri, Sivan Temple. Everyone knows that Christians have nothing to do with such celebrations. Thus, the encounters between the Hindus and Christians started.

Mazhai Madha Church - myth floated-arputa nagar

Pungavana, VAO, Acharapakkam gave a complaint to the police: As the Police realized the problem and they did not want any confrontation between the Hindus and the Christians, they called the representatives from both and advised. The Christians accepted that they would not encroach further by maintain status quo[6]. However, they continued with their activities and constructions.  Thus, the public themselves started complaining to the police. Therefore, the police also enquired, but, did nothing. Under such circumstances, one R. Raja from Sothuppakkam, a nearby village, filed a writ petition in the Madras High Court with the plea that the Christians have encroached the Acharappakkam hillock portion, illegally occupied 55 acres land and therefore, all the illegal constructions should be ordered to be removed[7]. As they blasted rocks with detonators for building steps, many wild animals have been disturbed and there has been a threat of them entering into nearby towns[8]. “R. Raja, 45, a local resident, had filed the PIL petition with a plea to remove the encroachments. The petitioner claimed that the church itself had been constructed about five decades ago on a piece of land classified as Meikaal Poromboke (land meant for grazing). Thereafter, the management laid a road and began disturbing the ecology of the hill, he alleged and accused it of having constructed many shops last year. Unabated constructions had caused great damage to the animals on the hillock and also the archaeological sites on the foothills.” 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[9]. The case is adjourned till the survey was over and fixing the next hearing on March 23, 2020[10].

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.

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

The Christians meddling in Orissa, killings and communal issues

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:

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

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.”
