Sexual exploitation of women and nuns, pedophiles and all other sorts of sexual crimes of Tamilanadu not considered properly by the woman and social activists!

Why certain sex crimes are suppressed, not reported and nottaken into consideration by researchers?: The rape of children (below 18 years), sexual exploitation of women and nuns, pedophiles and all other sorts of sexual crimes have been going on increase, yet, the whole lot of educated, elite and even researchers, historians, women activists and others do not discuss, do not bring the cases into their analysis, as if nothing happened in India[1]. Just in February 2019, when South Indian History Congress was held in Hyderabad, such trend is noted. G. J. Sudhakar delved upon the topic, “Child rights in India – A Historical perspective,” in an abstract way theoretically without touching upon the rights of Indian children violated in India for the last 50 years by the foreigners and Christian missionaries under “pedophile,” sex-tourism and categories. Though, he went on mentioning Acts, he did not whisper about the Supreme Court judgments[2] where foreign and missionary were arrested and even sent to jail. The judgment cited has been illustrative and there have been many cases. Even a general newspaper reader has been seized of such issues, as thousands of such pedophile cases are reported in the newspapers and TV reports[3]. Therefore, it is surprising that the professors had decided not to mention.

Why pedophile crimes are suppressed?: To cite a media report[4], “According to the National Crime Records Bureau a total of 12,363 cases of child rape were reported in the country during 2013 as compared to 8,541 in 2012 accounting for an increase of 44.7%. The maximum child rape cases were reported in Madhya Pradesh (2,112 cases) followed by Maharashtra (1,546 cases) and Uttar Pradesh (1,381 cases). These three states together accounted for 40.8% of the total child rape cases reported in the country. A 2007 WCD study found that more than half (53%) of the children interviewed said that they had been subjected to one or more forms of sexual abuse. Over 20% of those interviewed said they were subjected to severe forms of abuse. Of those who said they were sexually abused, 57% were boys”.

Mahila court sentenced the rapists and  pimps: The Cuddalore District Mahila Court / court sessions judge D Lingeswaran on 07-01-2019, Monday awarded 30-year jail term to a CSI church priest involved in the horrifying Tittakudi rape case of 2014, involving two minor girls from the district and trafficking gangs from across the State[5]. Nine others were sentenced to life imprisonment[6]. The court found 16 of the 17 accused guilty of abduction, sexual assault and other charges. Priest Aruldoss, who sexually assaulted the girls, was also slapped with a fine of Rs 5 lakh. Anbazhagan, the gang’s kingpin from Salem was sentenced to life in prison and fined Rs 3.21 lakh. Sridhar, the driver who took the children to different places, was sentenced to two life terms and fined Rs 4.4 lakh. They were sentenced to different jail terms ranging from double rigorous life terms to one-year rigorous imprisonment after holding them guilty of crimes including kidnapping two minor girls, illegally confining them, selling them to gangs involved in prostitution, sexually assaulting them and forcing them to indulge in flesh trade.

Sex racket started at Idli shop and ended with CSI pastor: On June 8, 2014, two minor girls studying in Class 8 and 9 in a government higher secondary school in Thittakudi went missing[7]. After searching everywhere, their parents registered a police complaint on June 11 to recover their kids soon[8]. After an in-depth investigation, police rescued the two girls from a sex broker identified as Satheesh in Vadalur area and found that they were assaulted sexually and forced into prostitution by Pastor Aruldoss and his associates. In other words, the CSI pastor was actively engaged in such racet, exploiting the poverty of the girls. The case dates back to 2014, when a 13-year-old girl from Tittakudi was befriended by Tamilarasi, who used to run an idli shop. The woman then coerced the girl into having sexual intercourse with her husband and other men. The child was later told that she would be let off if she brought another girl to them. The child then brought another victim, a 14-year-old girl from the neighborhood, to the woman. Both girls were sexually assaulted by the men. It is unbelievable that one girl would simple have sex with many and she would bring another girl for her release. As facts are suppressed, the sex trade carried on is suppressed. In the months that followed, they were trafficked to various places in the State including Salem, Panruti, Vadalur, Virudachalam and Ulundurpet and were sexually assaulted by several men. Police investigation found that the two children had been forced to watch pornography and had been sexually assaulted by several men including priest Aruldoss[9]. The father of one of the girls filed a missing complaint with Tittakudi police in July 2014. Meanwhile, the children managed to escape and reached Tittakudi[10].

The judge imposed punishment according to their gravity of crime: Actually, these sex criminals should not be shown any mercy at all, as they have soiled dozens of lives of young girls.  When Pollachi sexual crime was carried on in Hi-tech manner, this has been done at village level in crude manner. Cuddalore mahila court sessions judge D Lingeswaran imposed more than Rs 25 lakh penalty on them after holding them guilty under various sections of Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (Pocso) Act, 2012[11]. Seventeen people were arrested in connection with the case but Tamilarasi and her husband Satheesh have been absconding. Of the other five convicts, four were awarded 20-year jail time while one convict got 10-year imprisonment. Punishment for other accused[12]:

  • Anandaraj – Four life terms and a fine of Rs 2.1 lakh
  • Selvaraj – Three life terms and fine of Rs 30,000
  • Mohan Raj and Mathivanan – Two life terms each and fine of Rs 2 lakh
  • Fathima – Two life terms and a fine of Rs 4.4 lakh
  • Kala alias Mekala, and Lakshmi – Two life terms and a fine of Rs 4.2lakh
  • Amudha – ten years in jail and fine of Rs 21,000

Punishment to all: Sridhar – to undergo double rigorous life terms for forcing the two minor girls into prostitution, two 10 years rigorous imprisonment for kidnapping them, another two 10 years rigorous imprisonment for selling them to gangs involved in prostitution and two one-year rigorous imprisonment for illegally confining them. He also slapped penalties to a tune of Rs 4.22 lakh each on them. The judge sentenced two men – Anantharaj and Balasubramanian – to double rigorous life terms for sexually assaulting the minor girls and another double rigorous life terms for forcing them into prostitution and a 10-year rigorous jail term for kidnapping the minor girls besides imposing a fine of Rs 4.1 lakh on them[13]. He sentenced two men – Mohanraj and Mathivanan – to undergo double rigorous life terms for sexually assaulting the minor girls and imposed Rs 2 lakh fine on them. Selvaraj was sentenced to undergo rigorous life imprisonment for the same crime, besides double rigorous life terms for forcing the girls into prostitution, two 10-year rigorous imprisonment for kidnapping them and two 10-years rigorous imprisonment for selling them to pimps[14]. However, it has to be noted as to whether they would go o jail or appeal again.

“Mother” Theresa’ Missionaries of Charities involved in baby-selling., two Nuns have been arrested!

July 6, 2018

“Mother” Theresa’ Missionaries of Charities involved in baby-selling., two Nuns have been arrested!

Nirmal Hridhay - baby selling - 06-07-2018-5

The Missionaries of Charities involved in “baby selling”: The home in eastern India’s Jharkhand state is run by Missionaries of Charity, the order set up by Mother Teresa to provide shelter for pregnant and unmarried women and their children[1]. For the services rendered by her much publicity was given and noble prize was also awarded. However, there had been allegations and accusations that she was helping pedophiles by allowing them to exploit the children in the orphanages. In fact, India has been exploited by the American and European pedophiles using “Sex tourism ” being carried on by the Missionaries, as has been exposed already by many cases that have gone up to Supreme court of India. In the present case, Indian police officer Aman Kumar said at least six babies have been sold to childless couples[2]. He said: “We are investigating to see how the operation was run and how many more children have been given away in the last few years.” The Missionaries of Charity did not respond to calls for comment. Arti Kujur, head of the Jharkhand State Child Protection Society, said the home was charging between £450 = Rs. 30,000/-  and more than £1,000 = Rs. 70,000/- for each baby, depending on what the childless couple could afford[3]. The money was reportedly paid as hospital fees.

The Nun involved has been a habitual offender caught only now: A member of the committee, Pratima Tiwari, told The Times of India that they realised a baby boy was missing during a routine inspection[4]. The Child Welfare Committee chairperson alleged that she filed a complaint after the couple – to whom the accused had given the child to – asked her to intervene, PTI reported. “The Uttar Pradesh-based family claimed that Anima Indwar, who handed over the child to them on May 14, 2018 called them up on July 1, 2018 and asked them to visit the shelter home for completing certain formalities,” Verma said. “When the child was brought to the shelter home, Indwar took the boy away.” She alleged that the accused had committed more crimes of this nature[5]. As more babies were reportedly sold, it is evident that the nun in question has been habitual offender, but, caught only now, because of the complaint and exposure. The child is currently in a government shelter for children.

Four babies were sold recently: According to the police, the two nuns allegedly sold four babies in Jharkhand as well as Uttar Pradesh[6]. This suggests that it was an inter-state child trafficking racket that the nuns were part of. The Church, school, convent, nunnery and the priests all keeping together nearby has been the root cause of all sorts of sexual related offences, crimes and violations, as being reported in the media and facts. As such crimes have been repeatedly appearing in media for the last 40 years and they have been increasing day by day, the matter should have been taken seriously. Unfortunately, in India, because of secularism, whenever, any crime is involved with the Christians and Muslims, they are treated differently. Even if they are suppressed and forgotten, the law enforcing authorities do not bother and the media, just covers up and keepm quite, as if nothing happens! Ranchi Deputy Superintendent of Police Shyamanand Mandal was quoted by news agency ANI as saying, “These nuns sold four babies – three in Jharkhand and one in Uttar Pradesh. Further investigation is underway.” An FIR has been registered under section 370 of the Indian Penal Code[7]. The FIR was reportedly registered by the Child Welfare Committee of Ranchi after an inspection.

After adoption, they adopted and adapted the “baby selling” as easy method: Kujur said: “We had been receiving many complaints regarding the functioning of this home and were keeping a close watch on them for nearly six months.” The Missionaries of Charity stopped organising adoptions in India in 2015 saying they disagreed with government rules that made it easier for single, divorced, and separated people to adopt children[8]. Kujur said his organisation had directed that the credentials of every home run in the state should be checked. “We hear that babies are being sold in other homes as well and are determined to put a stop to it.” After the exploitation of adoption methods and export of children to foreign countries, perhaps, the Missionaries of Charity have found put a new method to sell babies. Here, the babies of unwed mothers are taken and sold. “Unwed mothers” raise many questions, as the “Nirmal Hridhay” itself has such categories. In other words, such women cannot beget children, unless, they are impregnated and it is possible only by men. Then, who are such men allowed to mate with such women, how and why they are allowed and such other questions arise. It is a serious issue, as prostitution is also allowed in such transactions.

Sister Koncilia, a nun at Missionaries of Charity’s Nirmal Hriday home,  was arrested: Sister Koncilia, a nun at Missionaries of Charity’s Nirmal Hriday home, was arrested on 06-07-2018, Thursday for allegedly selling a child of an unwed mother[9]. Ranchi SSP Anish Gupta said, “Two arrests have been made. A worker at the home was arrested on 05-07-2018, Wednesday. We have also got the details of three children who were sold by them to different couples. We are in the process of verifying their addresses.” Nirmal Hriday, at Ranchi’s Jail Road, offers shelter for unwed minor mothers and differently-abled people. The home had 11 pregnant girls and around 75 differently-abled persons living there. Sister Koncilia was the head of the unwed mothers section[10].

Missionaries of charity sell babies - 05-06-2018

11 pregnant women found shifted: CWC member Tanushree Sarkar said, “We have moved the 11 girls to Karuna Shelter home and sealed that section of Nirmal Hriday. The other section does not come under our jurisdiction, but we will try to get it sealed.” The committee will be shifting around 70 children who have been given shelter in Nirmal Shishu Bhavan, another branch of the organisation situated at Hinoo, to other homes on Friday. Sarkar said, “After the incident in one branch, we cannot trust the other branches of Missionaries of Charity and we will not be sending children to them for shelter from now on.” Sarkar said of the 11 pregnant girls at the home, at least three were never produced at CWC. “As per the law, any minor child in need of care and protection should first be produced before the committee,” she said. However, why the Missionaries of Charities have not been following rules and regulations and the CWC could only now point out. Had all been faithful enough to law of the land, they must have followed. Not that only, when, something has come out, all issues should be discussed, lacunae detailed and crimes committed demonstrated.

Nun arrested for selling babies of unwed, 06-05-2018

What Christians and minorities should ponder over and do?:

  1. The issues – Selling of Babies, that too, born to unwed mothers are treated differently in many countries, including India.
  2. The child trafficking, women trafficking and related crimes have been so serious and it is ridiculous to note that they are covered up by the Christians and other minorities under the guise of minority status or secularism or otherwise.
  3. Suppression of such crimes could only spoil their society and as well ass Indian society.
  4. The babies taking birth outside wedlock, before marriage etc., only expose the vulnerability of women, nuns etc., treated in the Christian and catholic churches.
  5. The recent catholic priests raping faithful ladies expose such inhuman practices.
  6. Maximum, the church authorities have bee trying to cover-up, huss-up and suppress within the church sexploiting power and money.
  7. The “rogue-court” type proceedings would xdestroy the faith and belief system.
  8. The christians should clean their sins and they cannot create more sin chambers by sinning even the confession boxes.
  9. When surrogate mothers are encouraged, this type of crimes, perhaps, appear less criminal to such mind-set and psyche.
  10. All sexual relted crimes should be treated, handled and offendes should be punished without any discrimination under thelaw of this land.

Five catholic priests involved in sexploiting a married woman exploiting the confession made: Faithful ritual led to repeated raping of the woman!

Five catholic priests involved in sexploiting a married woman exploiting the confession made: Faithful ritual led to repeated raping of the woman!

Five catholic piests sexploit married woman with confession - 26-06-2018

Five catholic priests repeatedly rape a married woman: Nowadays, the news goes in this way, “A man, husband of a woman who was sexploited by a group of Catholic priests, complained to Church authorities that his wife has been subjected to serial sexual abuse by the clergy by exploiting her confessional secrets”. Five Kerala priests from the Malankara Orthodox Church (MOC) were suspended on 23-06-2018, Saturday, that his wife has been subjected to serial sexual abuse by the clergy by exploiting her confessional secrets after an audio clip containing serious allegations of sexual assault and abuse of clerical power did the rounds on social media[1]. Three priests belong to Niranam diocese, one Thumpamon diocese and another from the diocese of Delhi. Here, the details given by the “Times Now” TV channel in English are available[2].  Here, the stand of the husband could be heard, as he talks apologetically, as if he does not want to go to police[3]. Here, all the details of the five priests with photographs can be seen in Malayalam[4].

Kerala 5 pastor rape - Abraham Varghese

Audio / video clips expose the sexploitation: In the clip, a man alleges that his wife was assaulted by a priest before their marriage[5]. When she confessed to another priest, the man says, he blackmailed her into having sex with him, and threatened to tell her husband if she didn’t. He then sent a picture of himself with the woman to a third priest, who sexually assaulted her, the husband says. A spokesperson for the MOC P. C. Elias said the five priests were suspended pending an enquiry.  “We got a complaint from the woman’s husband but we have no idea about the truth of the allegations. An internal inquiry will be conducted and based on its outcome, the Church would decide whether to restore responsibilities to the priests or take further action, if the allegations are found to have substance”. The husband, who swears by his fidelity and commitment to the church, says details of a five star hotel bill in his wife’s mail box blew the lid off the scandal[6]. The man confides during the conversation that a priest had coerced her into an abusive relationship and the history of abuse predated their marriage. Overcome with guilt, the woman confessed to another priest before her child’s baptism. The confessor also turned predator and shared her pictures with another priest, who also took advantage of her plight[7].

The sex video changed hands and the woman was also sexploited accordingly: The video clip changed many hands within the clergy, the husband says during the conversation[8]. The man, seething with anger over being betrayed by the very people meant to guide him spiritually, fears more priests are involved and his wife hadn’t possibly told him the full story fearing reprisals from the influential clergy. He wants the priests to be defrocked for blackmailing a believer using her confessional secrets, considered a sacrilege. The man heard making the allegations in the audio clip hasn’t yet filed a police complaint. He says in the clip that he sent his wife back to her house, and that her family was trying to file a complaint against him. He also says elders from the community have called to dissuade him from complaining. In other words, the powerful church wants to suppress the whole sexploitation. When five Christian priests raped a married woman, they must have been arrested immediately, but the “suspension news” appears as cruel joke. It cannot be taken as an internal matter of them, as it involves serious sexploitation of married women. Ironically, the National Women Commission and other feminist organizations are keeping quiet. It is intriguing to not that the husband complained did not complaint to police. Then, what the man wants to do?

Kerala 5 pastor rape - Job Mathews

The media’s pathetic reporting: NDTV says[9], “Kerala Man Alleges Priests Sexually Abused Wife; Church Orders Probe”! It repeats the PTI news and does not comment more. It is quite intriguing, amusing and shocking to note that the way the media that claims so many things about their credibility, stand and other journalistic virtues report in this way[10]. So when Christian priests rape women, only, church is empowered to order enquiry and police are not required! News18 reported that they have been transferred! So if you want transfer, rape married woman in church! Any reader can The media has been pathetic, anesthetized and anti-women when issues like this comes, because, evidently, it is of Christians. But, in secular India, why and how the women are also are treated differently? The  Deputy Editor of the, Businessline has been reasonable, sensitive and dealt with the sensitive issue directly giving suggestion for action as follows.

Kerala 5 pastor rape Jijo J. Abaham

Law of the land should deal with abuser priests of Kerala: The Malankara Orthodox Church, a wealthy and influential religious sect in the State, barred five of its priests from performing sacramental duties after allegations that they sexually abused a woman in Thiruvalla, a small town famous for its rich diaspora. Notwithstanding the suspension of the priests, the incident exposes the dark and ugly underbelly of religious institutions and the clergy, especially in Kerala where most factions of the church and organisations of other forms of faith command immense financial, social and political clout[11]. It is indeed shameful and shocking that the priests were able to blackmail the woman, who belonged to their own herd, by exploiting her own confession secrets and passing the information around, leading to further abuse. This and many similar incidents reported in the recent past expose the chinks in the counselling and confession apparatus of not just the church but also other religious organisations, pointing towards the need to demand more transparency in the operations of religious organisations, especially in the way complaints of abuse and exploitation are treated. Such incidents are, for sure, a blot on not just the Malankara Church but on all segments of Christian faith and casts a shadow over the way women and the vulnerable are treated.

Kerala 5 pastor rape - Husband complains-video

The Church does not act like AMMA, the body of Malayalam film actors in Kerala: Already, there have been allegations that religious organisations function in alarmingly patriarchal way at a time pontiffs such as Pope Francis of the Roman Catholic Church, a stronger and larger force in Kerala, are calling for more gender sensitive policies and offering more avenues for women in the affairs of the church. Hence, the Malankara Orthodox Church must take appropriate action against the priests if found guilty and should let the laws of the land, not just the rules of the church, deal with them, especially given that many people including the believers have expressed fear that the maximum punishment these priests would meet could be a suspension, which will bring matters back to the normal sooner or later. The civil society must be vigilant to make sure the Church does not act like AMMA, the body of Malayalam film actors in Kerala, which shamelessly — shocking rights organisations and gender activists — welcomed back into its fold Dileep, a superstar accused of orchestrating one of the most heinous episodes of rape and abduction on an actress[12].

The Catholic priests sexploited woman many times-TIMES Now

The husband complained in March, 2018, but, Chuch says the victim to go to police in June 2018: Speaking to TNM, the church now claims that it is not them, but the victim who should approach the police[13]. Authorities at the church told TNM, “Why should we approach the police when we have taken cognisance of the complaint and formed an internal committee to inquire?” Asked why the church has not approached the police despite receiving the complaint three months ago, a highly placed church official said that it is the woman who should approach the police[14]. “What is stopping the woman from going to the police? Why should we approach the police when we have taken cognizance of the complaint and formed an internal committee to inquire? Suppose this was a case involving a minor, we would have approached the police ourselves. But in this case, the woman is an adult and she can seek the help of police if she wants to,” the official said.

Why Christian schools exceed the limits of education, resort to psychological methods and indulge in sexual harassments, molestations and rapes?

Why Christian schools exceed the limits of education, resort to psychological methods and indulge in sexual harassments, molestations and rapes?

Georgris Britto arrested, Jaipur catholic priest-School

Why more and more Christian religious heads involve in sexual crimes?: The Christian indulgences in sexual harassments, molestations and even rapes have been increasing and become order of the day, not only throughout the world, but also in India. Every day, news is coming about the involvement of Christian cardinal, bishop, pastor, priest and so on in the violations of Acts and rules of the land. Initially, they have been adjusting and compromising within the church and hence suppressing many such incidences do not come out and get published in the media. But, later, slowly, the violations exceeded limits and such contraventions warranted legal action, adjudication and persecution. Though, the church-related crimes have been increasing, the responsible religious heads have been trying to suppress, instead of bringing discipline in the church. The Jaipur sexual harassment issue has not been drawn attention of the media, though, much hue and cry has been made out for other sexual crimes. In Tamil media, virtually, there has not been no whisper is made about the issue.

Britto arrested, Jaipur catholic priest

Georgish Britto surrendered or tried to ran away hiding?: A Catholic priest has been sent to a jail in Rajasthan for allegedly sending an obscene message to a teenage girl student of his school. In one of the messages, the accused wrote – ‘Your husband is always waiting for you’. Police on April 20, 2018 arrested Father Georgish Britto, vice principal of St Anselm School in Alwar[1]. A case was registered against him two days earlier for texting the 15-year-old ninth grader[2]. He was arrested when he went to “surrender” to the police, Father Edward Oliveira, vicar general of Jaipur diocese, told Matters India on April 23, 2018. The school is managed by the diocese of Jaipur. Alwar is some 160 km northeast of Jaipur, the state capital and the diocesan headquarters. According to other reports, the accused vice principal fled to Dausa in a bus after he came to know about the police case[3]. He called up his friend in Alwar from Dausa. The police traced the call and a team was immediately rushed to Dausa and arrested from Lalsot Road[4]. He was brought to Alwar where he is being interrogated. Sources said that the man was “planning to flee” to his native village via Jaipur. So the catholic priest wanted to “surrender” to the police or “planning to flee” to his native village has to be decided by the God!

Why Georgish Britto was sending obscene messages and videos?: On Wednesday [18-04-2018], there was a huge drama at the school when the girl’s parents accompanied by members of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad and the Bajrang Dal protested against the school’s vice principal. Following this, senior police officials arrived at the school to pacify the protesters[5]. The girl’s family alleged that not only was the vice principal sending their daughter obscene messages and videos from the past few days, but was also forcing her to change her religion[6]. Local political leaders including MLA Banwari Lal Singhal also arrived at the school to take stock of the situation[7]. The protesting group alleged that the vice principal was hiding somewhere in the school and police is deliberately not arresting him[8]. Paul, the principal of the school, however, said that he was unaware about the vice principal’s activities. After the high-octane drama, IPS Anil Beniwal reached the spot and asked the girl’s father to report the matter. “The vice principal has been booked under the POSCO Act and search is on to find him,” Beniwal said. The girl had not complained about the obscene messages earlier, obviously afraid of the school authorities.

Georgish Britto – can he capable of giving counselling to the girl?: According to the Times of India, the administration called in additional forces to keep the situation under control. While the protestors argued with the cops; the parents accused the school of shielding their teacher. Father Oliveira said the girl’s brother beat Father Britto on April 20, 2018. The vicar general said Father Britto, who was ordained hardly a year ago, had counseled the girl’s family to sort out some domestic problems. How can he indulge in such activities of counselling the girl is intriguing. The girl’s elder brother had also studied in the same school. The girl apparently developed some “infatuation” toward the young priest and used her father’s mobile to message him at night after her father went to sleep, the vicar general explained. This type of counter accusation by the Church and clergy expose their ugliest side of sexual harassment that has been going on in many Christian schools. However, the father caught the girl chatting with the priest and complained to the police. So the fact has been more clear than the Christian attempts of suppressimg the facts, in spite of their position, status etc.

Oswald Lewis letter dated 24-04-2018

In one of the messages, the accused wrote – ‘Your husband is always waiting for you’: This cleararly exposed his non-educative, non-catholic and indiscipline attitude and sexual mindset of the priest. Ironically, this has been the characteristic of the Christian church and clergy in India and the world also. Father Britto was arrested under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act of 2012, a stringent law to end abuses of minors[9]. Father Oliveira said the groups had accused the vice principal of trying to convert the girl and fondling her, besides sending lewd messages[10]. The vicar general said the junior priest had admitted that he only sent the message to the girl but denied other charges. “He admitted what he had done was imprudent and wrong. What has happened is very sad,” he added. The school authorities reportedly claimed that the student had never complained about such messages. But, the school authorities have not been so naïve to leave the girl, particularly, when she complained to the police. Father Oliveira said the accused priest had to remain in jail until May 5, 2018. “We can move for bail only after that,” he added.

Georgris Britto arrested, Jaipur bishop- Oswald Lewis

The arrogant attitude of the Church: Here, also, evidently, the national media though silent, the few covered the incidence tried to dub the excessive reaction of the so-called “right-wing” groups. Ironically, the letter of Oswald J. Lewis dated 24-04-2018 addressed to “Clergy, Religious & Laity, and Catholic Diocese of Jaipur” has been intriguing and shocking.  “In times of trial, uncertainties, and hardships we have only one source of consolation – Jesus the Good Shepherd. We turn to him in prayer. I hereby request you to fast and pray that we may tide over this situation and that Fr. Georgish Britto may have the strength and courage to bear the cross that the Lord has given him. Do pray for Paul Pulikal too that he be guided and strengthened by the Holy Spirit. Thanking you for your understanding of the situation sympathetically and praying for us.” This clearly proves that the Christian heads have not regretted, apologized and repented for the sinful crimes and criminal sins committed, but with theological arrogance, tried to justify such heinous sexual crimes, coolly forgetting the affected girls and women of India.

Sex abuse- church cover up-

In secular state, crimes cannot be justified with theology: Crime is a crime and it has to be dealt with according to the law of the land, but, when it is justified, vindicated and defended based on religion, theology and other illegal means, then, there is a reason to believe that the offenders, wrongdoers and criminals are protected. Then, as a pattern is noted in such perpetrated crimes for the last 50 years, it is nothing but organized crime carried on under the guise of religion by a particular group or believers. When the country is secular, the criminals cannot be treated differently, just because, he is a Christian and his theology helps him to escape from crimes committed. But, the Bishop’s letter quoted above clearly proves that the Christians have such extraneous mysticism, illegal spirituality and illegitimate holiness means to cover up crimes of all sorts by divine theology. This is very dangerous in a secular state, democratic polity and civil society and therefore, every citizen of India has right to expose such heinous ideology, atrocious philosophy and dreadful dogma paraded as acceptable religion and bring the criminals to court for prosecution and punishment.
