Christian music, Christian Tamil music,  Christian keerthanais and Kutchery: All with “Thomas myth”,  the way, Nivedita Louis spreads it!

The Hindu how spreads thomas myth, Abhirami Rao, July 2019

A newcomer in the list of “Thomas myth” spreading propagandists[1]: The Christians never forget to take any chance to insert and spread the myth of Thomas and now, one Nivedita Louis has come, hitherto unknown name in the context. It appears that she takes every opportunity effectively to do so, wherever, she goes on whatever subject, she deals with[2]. She supplies photos, materials and other things to aid abet to spread such myth without any shame[3]. In the same church, Rayappa Arulappa tried to manufacture evidences with Acharya Paul. Then, so many things happened…the project of a movie on “doubting thomas” and so on. But, she never touches upon these, but, follows the methodology of Subhashini Tremmel[4]. Our course, S. Muthaiah (1930-2019) used to accommodate such myth in his musings here (in The Hindu) and there (Madras musings). Even after him, the same trend continues[5]. One Abhirami Rao who joined the walk of Nivedita Louis came out with a stuff[6] that was duly published in “The Hindu”.  Generally, Indians or Hindus do not bother about all these things. But, when a pattern is found and she gets agitated immediately calling names with the outbursts of “Aryan,” “Dravidian,” “Vanderi” and so on, then, there is a reason to believe that she has agenda and continues now, just like her predecessors. The following have been the news stuff that involves her with the “Thomas myth.”

Nivedita Louis on Thomas myth wherever possible

The connection between Tamil music and Christianity: Right from the period of Bartholomaus Ziegenbalg, who tried to translate the German and Latin hymns into Tamil, people started to sing songs in the Tamil meter[7]. But Christian natives found it difficult to sing in the Western genre. To adjust themselves to the new situation, missionaries came up with songs that have attributes of both Western and Tamil music[8]. Along with singer Jasmine Wilson, writer-historian Nivedita Louis would be a holding a lec-dem that traces the connection between Tamil music and Christianity on August 23 2019 at Press Institute of India, Taramani. “The Tamil Christian songs date back to 300 years. At the ending of every Knanaya marriage, they used to sing Syriac chants. Missionary Constantine Joseph Beschi, also known as Viramamunivar, thought there was a cultural divide in music between the Tamil Christians and missionaries who propagated Christianity. So to have an alliance between the two musical styles, he started translating texts like Tirukkural,” says Nivedita.

Christian keerthanais, Christian Carnatic songs and Kutchery: People like Vedanayagam Sastriar, N Samuel and Henry Alfred Krishnapillai started writing Tamil Christian classics. “There wasn’t any difference between Carnatic and Tamil music — the music was the same, only the words differed. Vedanayagam Sastriar wrote Bethlehem Kuravanji (with the Lord of Bethlehem as the protagonist) that was inspired by Kutrala Kuravanji,” she explains. Missionaries transformed epic Tamil songs and brought it to the hold of Christianity. That’s how the tradition of keerthanais began. Similar to Carnatic keerthanais, they started penning Christian keerthanais as well. “Vedanayagam Sastriar and Thyagaraja are contemporaries. We don’t find much difference in their writings and compositions. The only difference is the usage of words. Those days, people used to write songs in notebooks and pass it on from one generation to next. When music went from one era to another, there was a huge transformation,” Nivedita adds. The best thing about Christian music is that it is democratic and not restricted to a particular community or group of people.

Waliking through santhome church, Nivedita Louis

The interest of Nividita Louis in the Santhome: Partnering with Vincent D Souza, the editor of a local newspaper, Nivedita says they chose to concentrate on Santhome because, “It has a high concentration of Christians, is one of the oldest parts of the city and has a lot of connections to the Portuguese. The lives of these people are very interesting,” she begins[9]. The walk will commence from the museum inside the Santhome Cathedral (assembly point), from where the hosts will go on to explain about the Portuguese residents’ day-to-day living and prayer rituals. “History shows that many of their customs are akin to that of the locals. For example, we can find pillars similar to the Dwajasthambam built in Hindu temples in some of the churches. People also used to take the idol of Virgin Mary out in a procession like they do with Hindu deities,” she explains[10].

Historian describes all the buildings near Santhome Church: At the crib inside the Santhome Cathedral, Nivedita will speak about how this Nativity scene was started in 1223 by Francis of Assisi. She says, “He is also called patron saint of animals — that’s why we find a lot of animals in the crib such as donkeys, goats and oxen.” The participants will then proceed to St Bede’s School after which, “We’ll go to the Bishop’s House, which was once a bungalow built by De Monte in 1808. In fact, the gate has a creepy story, which I’ll narrate during the walk,” shares the historian. St. Rita’s Church, CSI St. Thomas English Church, which is 175 years old and CSI St. Thomas Tamil Church will follow. The last stop is Kalpana House, which belonged to a yesteryear actress. The old bungalow currently houses a jewellery store but hidden within its walls is a small shrine built by the actress’ son, containing a 100-year-old statue of Infant Jesus. Another surprise element for the participants will be in store after a visit to this house, which will be revealed during the walk. To participate in the hour-long Christmas Eve Walk that will start at 7.30 pm, contact 9840170982.

Reviving thomas myth by the priests -1
Firangi Kunda or Parangi Malai: Hindus and Muslims reciting Ghazals, inside a church — nothing novel today, perhaps but when it first happened, as an act of spontaneity by people who were overwhelmed by the sheer beauty of the European paintings depicting Biblical scenes, it went on to be etched as a special moment in the city’s multi-cultural history. It happened at the church (called Church of Our Lady of Expectation) on St. Thomas Mount, then known as Firangi Kunda or Parangi Malai when Nawab Sadathullah Khan ruled the Carnatic. The year was 1719, and the Nawab’s men — led by his Dewan, Dakhini Ram along with a few Muslim generals and others — were returning to Arcot after some tough negotiations with the English at Fort St. George.

The Nawab’s Church visit: On the way, the Nawab’s party was invited by Armenian traders to visit their palatial bungalows at the foot of St. Thomas Mount[11]. After enjoying Armenian hospitality and some rest, Dakhini Ram and his men climbed up the hill to see the elegant church, built at the spot where St. Thomas, the apostle, was believed to have been killed in 72 CE[12]. The Portuguese had built a church there in the 16th century, which was renovated and beautified by the rich Armenian traders of Madras just a few years before the Nawab’s party would land up there, out of curiosity. And what they saw took their breath away. “Its lofty buildings and its elegant and bewitching aisles, where, at every corner, pictures of Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ adorn the walls, dazed the onlooker,” writes Jaswanth Rai, the chronicler of Nawab Sadathullah Khan.

Nivedita Louis on Thomas myth
Arcot Nawab, Sufi, Sheikh and Brahmin: It was probably the first time that the Indians were coming face-to-face with European Renaissance-style paintings. The use of perspective on a two-dimensional surface to make it appear three-dimensional was one of the characteristic features of Renaissance paintings. It made the painted eye appear as though it was following the viewer. Once inside the church, they found the interior of the church roof completely painted with Biblical scenes and of Virgin Mary with Child Jesus. “What wonderful paintings, particularly the ones on the roof are beyond all praise. From whatever corner one looks at, his eyes are dazzled at the art,” records Jaswant Rai, who accompanied the Dewan. Jaswant Rai’s friend Muhammad Arif composed a verse on the spot:

‘His eyes (artist’s) see with the eye of God:

The whole art of the West is manifested in the twinkle of the eye.’

Thoroughly intoxicated with the beautiful paintings and the hospitality of the padre, the Nawab’s men decided to hold a Mushaira (a poetic symposium) right there. So poets such as Khizl Bash Khan, Fazlullah Khan, Aga Muhammad Muqim, chronicler Jaswant Rai and several others got together. Basanth Rai, brother of Jaswanth Rai, sang:

‘The eye has not eyed like unto the beloved from the west; The moon has not witnessed another such moon in the whole of that country…’

Muhammad Arif continued thus:‘

The European beloved has struck such a chord in my heart

That the page of my heart has been metamorphosed

Into a picture of Europe…’

Interestingly, the paintings also brought in philosophical musings in people like Khizl Bash Khan, who began his recital with, “I am not able to differentiate between a Sheikh and a Brahmin…” Perhaps the English translation does not do justice to the original Persian verse with its rhyme and meter, but it does offer a glimpse into a society that appreciated art beyond the narrow confines of religion. Today, sadly it is only these verses that remain of the beautiful paintings that adorned the ceilings of the church. But these verses and the St. Thomas Mount chronicle bear testament to a time when religion did not blur man’s appreciation for the lofty things of life –this story has been published in “the Hindu.” Here, it has to be mentioned that “the Hindu” has been in the habitual accommodator of “Thomas myth” and it never gives ant space to expose it. That has been the journalistic ethics, commitment to history and what not. And finally, I February 2020, Nivedita Louis came out as follows:

Nivedita Louis and her friend on Thomas myth -facebook postings

Nivedita Louis comes out: “There is a museum in Santhome Church. There have been two important Chola inscriptions. Thee are other inscriptions of the Portuguese. The Church never suppressed them. The ceramic ware, bones, coins recovered during the excavations conducted in 1893 have been preserved here. A few years back, when the students of Madras University conducted excavations, terra sigillata, arattain type broken ware were recovered. It is not known whether they have been dated or not. Tis place has been alive since the Sangam period. The public can come and visit the museum, wen t is opened.  Just because, flag-staff is there for the last few years, it s a Hindu temple, some items are inside and therefore they are Hindu., I want to tell the ……….(Chillarai) Hindu organizations, who claim that they are Hindu. The potter of the Sanga period and the Cholas are our Tamil people. They are not like you who invaded and settled down here (vanderi) and not ……..so cheap fanatics. Tamil Christians are not imported from London. They are the sons of this soil. Aboriginal people. The invader Aryans, ho are you to touch upon our Tamil culture? Very strong protestations,” she posted in the Facebook in this way. This was in response to Arjun Sampath visit to the Church in February 2020.

Thomas myth spreading, Parangi church, Nivedita Louis - The Hindu

The Christians should stop spreading “the myth of thomas”: Whether S. Muthaiah or anybody, as they claimed / claim historian and all, they must be knowing the facts of “doubting Thomas,” as they very often quote from the archival sources, old books and documents. As for as the Christians are concerned, as they claim historicity for their religion, god, scriptures etc., they cannot manufacture legends, forge stories and myths. Historians cannot spread myth, particularly, the Thomas myth, as the Mylapore Archbishop himself was involved with such forgeries and the case had gone to the Madras High Court. The litigants came out on “out of court” settlement  to bury the fraudulent activities carried on. However, as it happened 25-30 years, the details have been known to many and they are available. Under such circumstances, they should stop to do such false propaganda.

The newly built Hyderabad church attacked –opposed by local villagers yet built without permission from the Government – why accuse Hindus? (2)

Hyderabad church attacked

Why local people should have objected to the building of Church?[1]: “The Special Correspondent” always not named of “The Hindu” characteristically reported as follows: “The church consecrated on May 13 by the Archbishop of Hyderabad Reverend Thumma Bala came under attack after a mob of locals reportedly entered it….. The miscreants, it was understood, had earlier gathered at the gram panchayat office, where a meeting was held opposing the continuation of the church……. The mob was led by the village sarpanch, said the police. “The irate villagers claimed that the owner of the land had illegally built the church. We have booked them for rioting,” Inspector M. Surender said, adding that they were yet to name people in the case[2]. The inspector also said George Reddy, the owner of the land who had allocated about 1,000 square yards for the church, had applied for permission for constructing a church with the district administration but had not received approval yet[3]. So why, they did not answer the issues connected?:

  1. Who are the miscreants not named?
  2. Why they opposed the building of Church?
  3. The opposition started immediately, yet, the Christians have been adamant enough to continue to violate the law and wishes of the local people.
  4. The miscreants, it was understood, had earlier gathered at the gram panchayat office, where a meeting was held opposing the continuation of the church…….”., thus, it is revealed through the Hindu report.
  5. …….The mob was led by the village sarpanch, said the police. “The irate villagers claimed that the owner of the land had illegally built the church.” Then, how and why the Bishop came there consecrate?
  6. Do all these Christians from Bishop to the nominated MLA in Telangana Assembly Elvis Stephenson and national coordinator of the Disaster Management wing of the All India Catholic Union Roydin Roach, want to legitimatize their illegal acts under the guise of Christianity, minority or some other reason?
  7. “The irate villagers claimed that the owner of the land had illegally built the church. We have booked them for rioting,” Inspector M.”- good, but, what about the violators of the law of this land? How they are superior to the villagers? Why no action was taken agaist George Reddy or the Bishop who wanted to justify the illegal acts?

 Miscreants attacked church in Hyderabad-1

Elvis Stephenson connected with Church and political activities: Though, one is not interested in the affairs of others, but, when they try to poke their noses with vested interests, naturally, the other would try to probe why they are poking their noses. When started verifying with the persons involved in the church building affairs, there have been a lot of controversies, accusations and arrested involving politics and Christian religious leaders. The reported in 2015: “Police are verifying the reported statement of Telangana nominated MLA Elvis Stephenson made before the Magistrate in the cash-for-vote case, that Bishop Harry Sebastian had connected him to A.P. Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu over mobile phone[4]. The statement indicated that Sebastian had called up Stephenson three to four times assuring to put him through Mr. Naidu over phone. Around 4 p.m. on May 30, 2015 he Bishop rang up on mobile phone No. 9949054322 of the nominated MLA and connected him to Naidu. Five hours later, Sebastian gave a ring to him and passed on his new mobile phone number, sources said. The next morning, he rang up again and conveyed that he (Sebastian) along with TDP MLA A. Revanth Reddy would come to his house and hand over Rs. 50 lakh out of the Rs. 5 crore assured to be paid to cast vote to the TDP MLC nominee. But Sebastian later decided to change the place of meeting. Then the nominated MLA approached his friend Malcolm Taylor stating that he wanted to meet some people at the latter’s house. However, the meeting was arranged at the house of Taylor’s mother. The ACB officials had set up audio and video recording equipment in the house. Elvis Stephenson had told the Magistrate that Bishop Harry Sebastian had connected him to Naidu over phone”[5].  So, one should not not involved in such controversies, if he has been truly religious and worried about God! But, the events show that they have been more interested in other affairs and activities also.

Phone tapping involving Elvis Stephenson- cash for vote

Bishop Sebastian Harry arrested in cash-for-vote scandal involving Elvis Stephenson[6]: It appears that the Christian MLA was involved in controversies also. The Hyderabad High Court on Friday [03-06-2016] quashed an FIR filed against Jerusalem Mathaiah, an accused in the cash-for-vote scandal involving TDP MLA in Telangana A Revanth Reddy. Mathaiah, whose name figures as the fourth accused in the case registered on May 31, 2015, by Telangana’s Anti-Corruption Bureau, had moved the court seeking quashing of the FIR. On May 31 last year, TDP’s deputy floor leader in Telangana Assembly Revanth Reddy and two others Bishop Sebastian Harry and Uday Simha were arrested by ACB while allegedly paying a bribe of Rs 50 lakh to Elvis Stephenson, a nominated MLA, for supporting TDP nominee Vem Narendar Reddy in Legislative Council elections on June 1, 2016. TDP MLA Sandra Venkata Veeraiah was also arrested later. All of them were subsequently granted bail. Mathaiah had secured a High Court order staying his arrest. He had sought quashing of the FIR on the ground that at no point he had had any conversation with Stephenson and the link was not established between him and Revanth Reddy[7]. Justice B Siva Sankara Rao allowed his application and quashed the FIR against him. In spite of all these happenings, KCR samctioned Rs. 5 crores for building church buildings and Elvis Stephenson thanked him appreciating[8]. These are mentioned not for raking up old issues or settled matter among the involved Christian leaders and politicians, but, as they accuse Hindus of “extremism” and all, then, their nature has also to be subjected to scrutiny.

Phone tapping involving Elvis Stephenson- cash for vote-church

Andhra, Telengana, Church building and Communalization of society: When Samuel Rajasekhara Reddy was there, he was openly accused of helping Christians to build churches all over AP. Incidentally, the AP people openly told that he was punished by the God Venkateswara, as he allowed Christians even to encroach Titupati and Tirumala by building Church and distributing propagandist materials denigrating Hindu religion. Now, Telengana state has been created much against wishes of Telugu speaking people, but, just to satisfy the personal interests of KCR and his associates. As he has been communalizing Telengana, he has been hobnobbing with the fundamentalist Muslims and Christians going on granting funds and other facilities officially. Thus, these fundamental groups have been emboldened to engage themselves in communal agenda. In doing so, naturally, they have started rubbing the feelings of Hindus. Here also one can carefully note the tone and tenor of the Christian leaders speaking against Hindus. They have been allowing SC converted Christians to continue as Hinds only, as otherwise, they would loose the reservation benefits. At the same time, when the Christians get benefits, they are not percolated to the converted Christians. With a lot of misappropriation of funds, sex scandals involving Bishops, pastors etc., they have been perhaps indulged in this type of mudslinging, creating controversies and inciting violence through illegal activities. Therefore, it is better to check these vested groups, instead of accusing “ordinary people” and so on!

Why newly built Hyderabad church attacked – why it was opposed by the local villagers yet built without permission from the Government? (1)

UCAN India report

The Church inagurated on 13-05-2017 was attacked on 21-05-2017 by the local villagers[1]: Two days ago on Sunday [21-05-2017], vandals trashed “Our Lady of Fatima Catholic church” at Godamakunta in Kundapalli, a village in Keesara mandal, Hyderabad (Telangana), thus, the newspapers and internet versions started circulated the news as if the Christians are attacked again and again in India. This “is a great shock” for the local Catholic community. “We are deeply hurt” and “discouraged. We shall rally for peace through prayers,” said Mgr Bernard Swarna, vicar general of the Archdiocese of Hyderabad as he reacted to the act of vandalism[2]. “Our religious sentiments have been deeply offended,” the clergyman noted. “The attackers entered the church and destroyed everything. For us Catholics, it is very painful to see the statue of Our Lady thrown to the ground, the crucified Christ broken, and the altar turned over.” So, the other Christian denominations have chosen to keep quite!

Swarna Bernard Vicar General of St. Joseph College-Hybiz.tv

The Vicar says, “….the vandalising of the church is the work of a “few extremists”, unlike “the majority of Hindus with whom we have good relations[3]: At the same time though, “We received support from Muslims and Hindus who condemned the violence against the church. They expressed their solidarity by participating in an act of prayer.” Mgr Swarna added that the Archdiocese is organising a meeting for next Sunday with the participation of religious leaders and ordinary believers to reiterate that, despite the intolerance of Hindu extremists, “praying is important”. “At first we thought to limit to Catholics, but after receiving so many messages of support, we decided to open it to everyone,” he explained. According to the vicar[4], the vandalising of the church is the work of a “few extremists”, unlike “the majority of Hindus with whom we have good relations”.  So, the Vicar or the Bishop or the media, why did not point out –

  1. Who are the “few extremists”?
  2. How they are different from “the majority of Hindus with whom we have good relations”, as claimed by him?
  3. Does it mean the “few extremists” are different from “the majority of Hindus with whom we have good relations”, as claimed by him?
  4. What exactly, he wanted to convey?
  5. If they are not “Hindus”, who are they?
  6. Are they Christians, Mohammedans??

They have conveniently suppressed the facts without answering.

Herald Malaysian - on church attack

Still, “There is a lot of confusion,” the prelate said, “and people demand respect. We want to rally for peace.”: He [the Vicar] also thanked the local police for their proven support, which “guaranteed us protection”.  Likewise, the authorities have offered “maximum cooperation”, as shown by the arrest yesterday of 22 people involved in the vandalising of the place of worship.” Still, “There is a lot of confusion,” the prelate said, “and people demand respect. We want to rally for peace.” Today the Archdiocese issued a press release in which it describes the attack against the church, which was inaugurated on 13 May 2017 by Archbishop Thumma Bala for the centenary of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima.  So, the Vicar again says something mysteriously –

  1. Still, “There is a lot of confusion,” the prelate said, ….why and that is the confusion?
  2. He continued to say, “…..and people demand respect. We want to rally for peace.”
  3. Why the attackers requires respect?
  4. Who are they to be respected?
  5. Why he wants peace with them?
  6. Does he imply that they are Christians?

Hyderabad church attacked- Thumma Bala

This is “a brutal act of violating our fundamental right of freedom to live, practice and worship our faith.”: The communiqué notes that a mob of more than a hundred people broke into the church, threatened the watchman and desecrated the place. “They also attacked Mr. Anantha Reddy, the supervisor of the construction work going on there, who was capturing this act of vandalism on his cellphone” [sic].  This is “a brutal act of violating our fundamental right of freedom to live, practice and worship our faith.” According to the Archdiocese, damages total around 250,000 rupees (US$ 3,850). “Such attacks can happen anywhere,” said Mgr Matthew Cheriankunnel in his homily. “We are not so far from [what is said] in “the Acts of the Apostles. In India, persecution is nigh, and we must expect it to come from all sides at any time. We have to live with this reality.” Fr Rayarala Vijay Kumar, the regional superior of the Pontifical Institute for Foreign Missions (PIME) in India[5], believes that violence “does not come from the people, from ordinary people, but has political-religious motives. Unlike other confessions, Hinduism has traditionally always been a tolerant religion,” but “Today, it is becoming more and more extremist.”–Asia News.

  1. This is “a brutal act of violating our fundamental right of freedom to –
    1. live,
    2. practice and
    3. worship our faith.”

Fantastic, yet you do not care for the Acts and Rules prevalent there!

  1. “Such attacks can happen anywhere,” said Mgr Matthew Cheriankunnel in his homily. “We are not so far from [what is said] in “the Acts of the Apostles. – so what he wanted to say?
  2. In India, persecution is nigh, and we must expect it to come from all sides at any time. We have to live with this reality.” Fr Rayarala Vijay Kumar. So with this internal issue, he wants to politicize!
  3. Rayarala Vijay Kumar believes that violence “does not come from the people, from ordinary people, but has political-religious motives. – So from ordinary people violence comes and he can attribute to “extremism”!
  4. Unlike other confessions, Hinduism has traditionally always been a tolerant religion,” but “Today, it is becoming more and more extremist.” – Hinduis is becoming more and more extremist!
  5. Thus, for every thing, they want to blame “Hinduim”!

 Fr Rayarala Vijay Kumar, the regional superior of the Pontifical Institute for Foreign Missions (PIME) in India

Church constructed without permission – construction started under the pretext of constructing a “function hall”[6]: According to the reports, a church located at Gudmakund village in Kesara Mandal of Medchal districts was attacked and the idols were desecrated. The persons arrested include Sarpanch, Dy. Sarpanch and two Govt. school teachers. ACP of Kushaiguda district, Syed Rafiq told that as soon as police got information, the accused have been arrested. It is mentioned that one Mr. George Reddy was constructing a church on his three acre land for which he had not taken permission from any authority[7]. He started this construction under a pretext of constructing a function hall. After getting this news, villagers including Sarpanch, Dy. Sarpanch and others assembled on Saturday. They reached George Reddy’s farm house and dismantled the under construction building. The arrested persons are Anil Kumar, Sarpanch, M. Rajalinga, Dy. Sarpanch, D. Venkat Reddy, Govt. teacher, C. Yadagiri, Govt. teacher and others. The Hindu reported it in its own way[8], “The irate villagers claimed that the owner of the land had illegally built the church. We have booked them for rioting,” Inspector M. Surender said, adding that they were yet to name people in the case. The inspector also said George Reddy, the owner of the land who had allocated about 1,000 square yards for the church, had applied for permission for constructing a church with the district administration but had not received approval yet.”!  So George Reddy started building consciously without permission without caring for the law of this land.

Can Keralite teenage girls could be raped luring with sweets and candies with all its top literacy rate and the claim of “Gods own country”?

Girls raped at Muslim orphanage 07-03-2017

Police suspect 30 girls might have been subjected to sexual abuse: Police had sent the students for medical examination on Monday night itself. A medical report on Tuesday (07-03-2017) confirmed that seven minor girls of Wayanad orphanage had been subjected to sexual abuse[1]. It is intriguing as to how the orphanage girls could have yielded to outsiders with such easy trap of offering sweets and candies. Six people have been taken into custody in connection with the incident[2] and three more are yet to be nabbed. The youngsters lured the students of the institution while they went to school. They gave them sweets and forced them to watch porn films before subjecting them to abuse[3]. They were threatened of serious repercussions if they complained, said the complaint by the administrator. Of course, there have been routine matters, whenever such incidences are reported by the media. The students are from 7th, 8th, 9th standards of the school. Though only seven students came out with complaints, police suspect that about 30 students were subjected to abuse[4]. Eleven cases were registered against the accused under various sections including under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) act. The accused will be produced before the court today 07-03-2017.

The orphanage (Yatheem Khana) at Muttil in Kalpetta: The girls, all in the age group of 14-15 years, were staying at the orphanage (Yatheem Khana) at Muttil in Kalpetta. Though, the media mentions it as “Yatheem Khana at Muttil in Kalpetta”, it has been pointed out specifically as the one that has been there started in 1967 and involved in financial irregularities earlier. As the WMO has many orphanages, educational institutions, commercial ventures, and other interests with political patronage and gulf-connerction, probably, the identity has been suppressed. Kerala has been ‘the God own country” and any God can do anything and ordinary men, particularly, secular Indians cannot ask anything. Now, ironically, the Communists have been ruling such “God owned country” and none knows what would happen there in coming days. The incident came to light after one of the girls was seen coming out from a nearby shop in suspicious circumstances and was questioned by a teacher. He informed the matter to orphanage staff, following which a complaint was lodged with the police, they said.

Medical report confirms rape of students of Yateen Khana

The sexual indulgences have been going on for more than two months: Police investigations revealed that the girls have been subjected to sexual harassment since January, 2017 (for two months or so)[5]. The shop is located near the orphanage and the accused used to lure the girls to the shop while they proceeded to the hostel from the orphanage[6]. So where, the girls have been subjected such sexual indulgences is also intriguing. Further, the accused threatened the girls and raped them on several occasions. This shows that the same personds and the girls are involved.  Those in custody are being interrogated by a police team headed by district police chief Rajpal Meena[7]. Any other information about the incident was not known immediately and police said more details would be shared as the probe progresses. The authorities have also arranged a counselling session for the girls[8]. Whatever may be the counselling and all, but the chastity gone is gone only and how the girls are going to overcome such trauma in coming days  is to be seen.

Yateen Khana Rape - persons close to management among the accused

Yateem Khana rape: Persons close to management among accused[9]: The investigation into the alleged sexual harassment of seven girls in a Wayanad Yateem Khana has found serious flaws on the part of orphanage management. In connection with the shocking incident that happened in the orphanage in Muttil, a police team led by Kalpetta CI has detained six persons for interrogation. Four persons have gone into hiding, according to the police.  The incident came to light on Monday evening, embarrassing the management of the orphanage that has recognition of the Social Welfare department. According to the police, the Plus One students used to go to the orphanage from their hostel rooms for prayers and other studies after 6 every day. It was during this time that the girls were threatened and forcibly taken away to be abused. This crime had been going on for the past one year and the police are trying to find out whether more persons are involved in it. The pathway from hostel rooms to the Yateem Khana is isolated without proper illumination. Allowing the students to move through this way after six without proper security has been viewed as a serious flaw from the part of the orphanage. The orphanage doesn’t subject students to counselling and it is alleged that huge money received as donations are not use for the welfare of the students. Meanwhile, there are rumours that sons of prominent members of the management are involved in the case and the police are under pressure to hush up the case to save their face.

Rape in Kerala

Rape Robin case is preceded by this Yatheem Khana continuous rape case: The incident comes close on the heels of a 16-year-old girl being allegedly raped by a church vicar at Kottiyoor in neighbouring Kannur district. The latest incident has surfaced even before the state has recovered from the shock of a rape by a priest. “It is yet another blot on the state. All child abuse cases should be fast-tracked and guilty will be given deterrent punishment,” said Mahila Congress leader Bindhu Krishna[10]. Former MP TN Seema asked the government to constitute a special investigation team to probe the latest incident. “The shocking incident is part of a big racket. The girls’ photos and videos were taken to blackmail them. A thorough probe is needed to bring all guilty to justice,” Kannur MP PK Sreemathi told reporters after visiting the orphanage on Tuesday (07-03-2017)[11]. Whether, the culprits arrested, the sexual harassment revealed, pornography videos shown, girls raped etc., have been accidental or incidental to link with the other rape Robin case, the Communist government might have tried to tag the Muslim case with that of the Catholic Christian one to prove its “secular” credentials, after all, they want votes from all.

Rape in Kerala- a woman is raped in every 6 hours

Kerala tops in literacy in India, how, then all such things could happen there?: Another shocking, and intriguing factor has been that all these things have been happening not only in the so-called “Gods own country”, but also a state with maximum  literacy. Moreover, the Keralites have been dominating the national and internation affairs in many fields. Therefore, it is unimaginable that the orphanage teenage girls could be just like that lured with sweets and candies and rape by showing pornography videos. Hown then such videos are freely available in Kerala? Who have been producing, manufacturing, distributing and selling in Kerala. The nexus of many forces is clearly visible with definite target off attacking Indian society by all means. The religious garb could be a facade only, as the ulterior motive could be different. Whether the ISIS links, terror exports, nunnery and related woman-abuses etc., have been on the increase in Kerala. Though, many times, it is said proudly that Kerala always tops in exporting nuns and nurses, the import of this type of vices raise many questions.

Congress, BJP and the so-called Hindu terror-II

July 17, 2010

Congress, BJP and the so-called Hindu terror-II

The story goes like this: Headlines Today has exclusively accessed material – in the form of video tapes and witness accounts available with investigators – that puts elements within the Sangh Parivar under the scanner[1].

  1. How the Headlines Today has exclusively accessed material?
  2. Who and why gave the material exclusively to HT?
  3. Who are the investigators with whom the materials were available those have been now given to HT?
  4. Whether the investigators are government or private?
  5. Why they are not named and identified?
  6. What is the timing of broadcast now?

Thus, many more questions could be raised to question the authenticity of the so-called evidences, which are broadcast again and again repeatedly with mixture of sound, noise and clippings.

Why the videotapes are not run continuously? Just like Tehelka[2], the conversation, allegedly taken place between B. L. Sharma and others is shown repeatedly with mixture of horrified sound. When B. L. Sharma, is shown either partially or otherwise, the opposite person with who he talks is not at all shown, but only sound comes. There is difference between the Hindi conversation and English translation shown on the TV screen. Only selective words and expressions of the sentences have been translated in a dramatic way for sensationalism. The same pattern noticed in the case of Nityananda, Kalki etc., in the south[3].

Without material evidences, the tape is played and cinematographic propaganda continued: Whoever may be, if they are really culprits, the police or any authority can arrest and take action, but a private TV-channel straightaway accusing individuals as criminals, conspirators, planners and so on using saffron goons, saffron brigade, saffron agenda and so on and tom toming that they are the criminals. Thus even courts, judges and none us required.

Why Muslim goons, Green brigades, Jihadi plotters, etc., are not talked about? The TV-channels never talk about Green-terror, Green-goons, Islamic goons, Islamic rowdies and so on. Even the killers and assaasinators like Maoists are not mentioned as Red-terrorists, Moaist-terrorists, Red-plotters, Red-brigades etc. How then the Hindus are taken for granted? Thus, the bias, prejudice, hatred against Hindus are blatantly visible[4].

Without the knowledge and permission of UPA or Congress, the material could not have reached HT: Assuming that the materials are available with the unnamed investigators, the materials could not have reached the hands of HT without any collusion of UPA / Congress. No invstigator would handover such material to other on platter.  Thus, to suppress the failure of congress on the issues of Indo-Pak dialogue, Kashmir problem, price rise, etc., it might have thought of such play and prepare to compromise with the agents.

Why towers, radars, scanners are not working for other Parivars and political parties? Every time, only the so-called Sangh Parivar is caught; Saffron brigade is targeted[5]; Sankaracharyas are easily arrested; It appears that the towers, radars, scanners work only for a particular colour – saffron and not to any other colour[6]. It is not known what type of semiconductor with which such electronic equipments, circuits and gadgetry are manufactured. Color-blind technology appears to work well in India. It is not known, when even the equipments, gadgets etc., have started behaving with secularism or selective communalism?.

Why the media stings always Sangh Parivar? The sting is chosen to hurt only Sangh Parivar and not Islamic / Green Parivar, Communist / Red, Dravida / Black Parivar and others. Jihadi terror works from Kashmir to Kerala and northeast to Gujarat, but, the sting never tingles any Islamic, Jihadi, Mujahideen, Al-Umma, Al-Quida, Al-Jihadi groups or agencies like PPF, Tawhid Jamad, and so on. This type of selective alertness as opposed to selective amnesia[7] could be a challenging topic for researchers.

How Congress, Communist and other parties are spared? Amar Singh once accused crores were paid for getting favourable judgment. Congress and communists accused each other for supporting Maoists. In fact, Mamta too accused, but sting-operation was never performed on them, though, daily Maoists kill so many police officers, innocent people etc.

Why the media should not be so faithful in arguing for hanging Afzal, Kasab, Hafiz Sayeed and others? The medua has never shown such enthusiasim in urging authorities to punish these killers. Instead, they have been arguing for abolition of hanging, capital punishment etc., thus proving their double-standards. And these media professional and experts use such language to take actin exclusively against the alleged offenders without any process, court etc., as they have solid evidence, that is the video shown again and again on the channel.
