In 1980, there was sudden increase in theft of Panchaliga idols – Idol Wing Police – History[1]: Idol theft cases were investigated by a small team of officials in CB-CID till the year 1980. During the year 1980 there was a sudden increase in thefts of Panchaloga idols. The thefts of such idols from the temples affected the sentiments of the local people. A proposal was initiated by the Director-General of Police to re-organize the strength allotted for investigating the idol theft cases. The Government accepted the proposal, constituted Idol Wing CID Vide G.O.Ms.No.2098 Home (Police IV) Dept Dt. 7.10.1983, with 1 SP, 1 DSP, 5 Inspectors, 3 SIs, 4 HCs, 3 Gr.I PCs and 13 Gr.II PCs. The unit functions from the Head Quarters, Chennai.  In the year 2000, CB-CID was bifurcated and Idol Wing was brought under the control of Economic Offences Wing in accordance with the order issued in the Chief Office Proceedings Rc.No.RAI (2)/273552/98 dt.30.12.1999. At present Idol Wing CID is headed by DIG-Idol Wing and assisted by one DSP and 5 Inspectors of Police.

Primary functions of the Idol Wing CID

  • To investigate cases of theft of idols and antiques exceeding value of Rs.5 Lakhs.
  • To investigate idol theft cases referred to it by the State Government.
  • To co-ordinate in the investigation of important idol theft cases handled by the District Police
  • Collection of intelligence on nefarious activities of antique dealers and art collectors.

 However, the idol teft in Tamilnadu has been going on obviously with the connivance of the persons involved at temple, idol-wing police, atheist politicians and others.

2008 case dragged up to 2017[2]:  In May 2008, idols recovered by Arociaraj was attempted to be sold to somebody through his accomplicw Subburaj. At that time Khader Batcha intervened and brought them to Chennai. Later he sold to some agent. According to Rajendran, he found a cover kept under his car wiper on April 12 last, which stated that one Arockiaraj of Aladipatty in Aruppukottai taluk found two panchaloha idols — Sivagamy Amman and Siva Parvathy -on a pedestal. Instead of handing them over to the police, they tried to sell the same to a foreigner in collusion with one Santhanam of the same village. However, two cops caught them red-handed and handed them over to police inspector Kader Batcha. The accused sub inspector Subburaj, 54, currently serving in Koyambedu police station, was serving as a head constable in 2008 in the Idol Wing when he, along with inspector Kader Batcha, is said to have obtained the antique idols from the farmer and sold them to another smuggler Deenadayalan, who is currently facing many idol smuggling cases, for Rs.15 lakh.

In January 2017, a case was registered against Kader Batcha, Subburaj and a few others[3]: The incident surfaced only in January 2017, when the idol wing registered a case against Kader Batcha, Subburaj and a few others. The case did not see much progress and in the course of years Kader Batcha was promoted as Deputy Superintendent of Police and is now serving in Tiruvallur district. Subburaj was promoted as a sub inspector of police and was serving in Koyambedu police station. While Subburaj was arrested on Monday 26-06-2017, the Idol Wing officers said Kader Batcha was absconding. A case has been filed under IPC provisions for alleged offences including robbery, or dacoity with attempt to cause death or grievous hurt, said Inspector-General of Police A G Ponn Manickavel. On Tuesday 27-06-2017, the petitioner informed the court that the case is now handled by an Inspector, who cannot effectively handle the same as the accused Kader Batcha is a DSP. Contending that it was a case of fence grazing the crop, the petitioner prayed the court to transfer the case to CBCID. A police sub inspector, one of the accused in an idol smuggling case, was arrested by Idol wing of the Economic Offences Wing on 26-06-2017 Monday. The arrest was made a day before the Madras High Court heard a petition seeking transfer of the case from the Idol Wing to CBCID. Justice R Mahadevan, before whom the petition from advocate ‘elephant’ G Rajendran came up for hearing on 27-06-2017, Tuesday, orally directed the Inspector-General of Police, Idol Wing Pon Manickavel to appear before him with all records of the case, on June 29.

Madras High Court questioned as to why the tainted DSP was not arrrsted?
: A day after the Madras High Court questioned the top brass of the state idol wing police as to why police personnel of their own wing involved in illegal sale of ancient panchaloha idols for several crores of rupees have not yet been arrested, the state government told the court that it had placed deputy superintendent of police Khader Batcha under suspension[4]. The judge orally asked the APP, “Why you have not arrested them. Don’t you know their whereabouts?”  The APP, Emilias said it will take some time to know their whereabouts[5]. The judge also asked Pon Manickavel what was the strength of the Idol Wing department. After Pon Manickavel explained the details, the judge asked him to file an affidavit as to what was the requirement and how many staff he requires. The judge posted to June 30, further hearing of the case. The judge also adjourned to July 21, 2017, the hearing on another petition filed by Rajendran, which sought a direction to the authorities to provide police protection to him and to his family[6]. In his petition, Rajendran alleged that he received information on Thursday that a high ranking police officer made a comment on him stating that “He always gives trouble to the government by filing petitions, harassed real estate persons, now he filed a petition against police. I will teach a lesson to him”. He sought to transfer the investigation of idol theft case to CB-CID.

Khader Bhatcha case - Indian Express 28-06-2017

The police assured that effective steps were being taken to arrest him (absconding DSP): When Justice R Mahadevan took up the matter for hearing on Friday [30-06-2017], special government pleader M. Maharaja and additional public prosecutor C. Emilias submitted that the DSP, Khader Batcha, suspected to have been involved in the idol theft and sale case, was placed under suspension with effect from June 29, 2017[7]. A sub-inspector, who was an associate of Batcha, has already been arrested. Though Batcha is absconding, there were rumours on Friday [30-06-2017] that he had been arrested near Andhra Pradesh border. The two law officers also furnished a copy of the suspension order before the court. They told Justice Mahadevan that effective steps were being taken to arrest him and that police would proceed with further investigation including recovery of idols in the case. The HR & CE department will cooperate with the police in the investigation, they said. As for Justice Mahadevan’s queries with regard to the staff strength at the idol wing police and vacancies dogging it, the law officers produced a circular issued by the DGP, allotting 20 police personnel, including a deputy superintendent of police, an inspector and a sub-inspector to the idol wing[8]. The judge then reserved his orders on the PIL, filed by advocate and activist Elephant G Rajendran[9].

Absconding DSP suspected to be hiding in Kerala[10]: CB-CID Idol Wing officers have intensified their search to nab Deputy Superintendent of Police Kadher Batcha, who has been suspended on for his alleged involvement in the illegal export of antique idols in 2008[11]. The news reports say that he was in Kerala or Andhra border hiding in a Ayurvedic clinic or resort. A.G. Ponn Manickavel, Inspector General of Police, Idol Wing CID, appeared before the Madras High Court and explained the details of the case to Justice R. Mahadevan who heard the plea moved by an advocate seeking transfer of the probe into a multi-crore idol theft case registered against two officials of the Idol Wing to the CB-CID[12]. Recording the appearance of IG, Justice Mahadevan orally instructed the prosecutor’s office to get instructions from the jurisdictional Superintendent of Police, Tiruvallur, as to why the police official involved in the crime was not yet arrested and file a report.

Subash Kapoor

Case background as reported in “The Hindu”[13]: Manickavel told The Hindu, “We have zeroed in on the probable whereabouts of Batcha and teams have been sent to Kerala following inputs that he might be hiding there.” In 2008, Sundaramoorthy, a professional photographer, who was running a studio in South Mada Street in Madurai and was involved in selling antique idols, had displayed photos of antique idols. Batcha, who was an Inspector at the time, and Subburaj, then a head constable in the Idol Wing, quizzed Sundaramoorthy about the photos displayed. Following information given by him, the officers apprehended Arokiaraj, a resident of Aladipatti of Aruppukottai Taluk in Virudhunagar, who was trying sell some idols recovered from his agricultural land to a foreign national. Police sources said Arokiaraj and Sundaramoorthy were interrogated at a guest house in Virudhunagar but they escaped from there. The idols were in the custody of Mr. Batcha who, along with Mr. Subburaj, tried to sell them to Deenadayalan, an international antique dealer, for Rs. 50 lakh. As Deenadayalan was reluctant to buy the idols, they reportedly forced him to buy the idols for Rs. 25 lakh. The idols found their way to Manhattan gallery owner Subhash Kapoor, who is in Puzhal Prison.

Doubting Thomas and supporting Kalainjar: Implications of the “mythical Thomas movie”

October 12, 2015

Doubting Thomas and supporting Kalainjar: Implications of the “mythical Thomas movie”

Note: This I posted in www.indianinteracts.com in 2008, but, all postings disappeared. Therefore, as I used to get retrieved on casual browzing, I get back some of them and hence posting here.

“Before and after July 3” – the day of Feast of Thomas!: Tamil people, our “Udan pirappugal” (brothers born with us) and “Rattathin rattam” (the blood of blood i.e, dearest of dearest) may not be knowing as to why our Kalainjar accepted to inaugurate the movie on July 3. But now news is coming that it was the day of Feast of Thomas which was liked by Karunanidhi, as he hates only panchangam and not almanac. That is why he changed the “New year” for Tamils, but he would adhere to their “panchangam”! So after prayer and speeches of others, Kalainjar was so moved to declare that “God has accepted him“! As Deccan Chronicle[1] reports:”Donning the believer”s mantle, the normally atheist chief minister said, “Whether I am accepted by God is more important than whether I accept God. I have to help humanity for being accepted by God. The audience applauded when he said this statement, which he had also made in the presence of Sai Baba last year.” Really, the “miracle of Casper” works! He is above God, so Jesus has to accept him and he / He would recommend Jehovah to accept!

Kalanjar, the historian propounds new hypothesis: He has not only become an official inagurator of the “mythical Thomas movie”, but also donned the role of “doubting Thomas historiographer”!”The chief minister said the martyrdom of St. Thomas had inspired him in many ways. Drawing a parallel to King Pari of the Sangam age, who was also killed by the conspiracy of several kings, he said, “History remembers those who were killed by conspirators.St. Thomas was also a victim of conspiracy.” Mr Karunanidhi launched the film by operating the movie camera.” The express reported of saying, “…history chose who to highlight, and St. Thomas was one such a noble soul. “We remember the man who was murdered. St. Thomas, but not the one who killed. History shows who is to be remembered”, he announced!

The confession that he was influenced by the “martyrdom” of “mythical Thomas” has been revealing! While “Pari Magalir” suffered a lot, the apocryphal Thomas too made many women suffer. Good historiography in deed, as he has shown the way to read Apocrypha to know more about the myths of Christianity, Christ, Mary, Mary Magdalene etc. The killer, conspiracy, martyr, etc., are interesting and Indians have to respond for such utterances. Particularly, the historians of all the so-called TNHC, SIHC, IHC etc., should come out.

 

Thus, Ishwar sharan[2] asks pertinently as follows:”The Roman Catholic bishops in Indiaowe Hindus an abject apology and crores in reparations for the Church”s crimes inIndia over the centuries, not a mega movie of a fictitious Apostle of India. But if they insist on the Rs 30 crore movie, are they going to tell the public the following facts about Judas Didymus Thomas as recorded in the Acts of Thomas that:

 

* Thomas was the look-alike twin brother of Jesus; (i.e, one more son to Mary?)

 

* Jesus sold Thomas as a slave for thirty pieces of silver; (slavery practiced, therefore no humanity, equality etc) 

 

* Thomas deceived the kings of Parthia-India” who gave him respect and hospitality; (mythical thomas was a deceit, cheat and fraud)

 

* Thomas was a thief; (no explanation is required, as Acts of Thomas says)

 

* Thomas abducted and locked-up women; (abductor of women, womanizer)

 

* Thomas engaged in various forms of black magic (sorcerer, exorcist competing with Jesus); and

 

* Thomas was executed by a Zoroastrian king who had initially shown him mercy and asked him to repent of his crimes and leave the country.” (but created all nonsense)

 

As Kalainjar has donned the role of “Thomas historiographer” or “the super hagiographer”, he would suitably reply covering the points raised. Dr. Paulraj Lourdusamy and chief researcher and scriptwriter of the film may learn a lot from the Kalainjar! 

Dr. Paulraj Lourdusamy, “the Church researcher: He is an ordained minister of the Catholic Church and is a priest of the archdiocese of Madras-Mylapore, India. He has doctoral degrees in the fields of Theology and Sociology and three doctorates earned from various foreign universities spending one year in libraries across the world to find the existing literature on St. Thomas. A Gold Medallist of the MadrasUniversity, he has also conducted doctoral research in the Educational Sciences. He is the author of the trilogy: Meditations on the Forty Names of Jesus, The Forty Parables of Jesus and The Forty Miracles of Jesus [3]. As the director of the venture, he clearly pointed out that the movie is being sponsored by the Madras archdiocese, with Vatican support, on a comparatively modest budget of $12 million. So Indians are fools to expect that such a with many multi-degree, multi-doctorate, multi-lingual genius should know the Arulappa-Acharya Paul, etc.

Like S. Rajamanickam S.J, R. Daniel Jayakumar questions theology: Though, Chinnappa has been trying to hush up the theological difference, Rev. Dr. R. Daniel Jayakumar of Kondu, Cuddalore, points out, “…….questions on certain gray areas like celibacy and vegetarianism still need convincing answers“, though Lurdusamy atnticipated that thomas’ encounter with the “reported animal and human sacrifice in the Chennai of first century” may create some controversy once the film is ready for release in 2010. Drawing reference to Deivanayagam, he notes that, “About three decades ago Dr M. Deivanayagam, a doctorate from Madras University and an authority on Tamil and early Christianity in India raised the pertinent question whether Tiruvalluvar was a Christian or not. Based on his thorough analysis of the biblical truths and profound wisdom found in the Thirukkural he concluded that he was.” Kamatchi Srinivasan [6] and Arunai Vaivelu Mudaliar[7] have already exposed the hollowness in such interpretation. 

Vegetarianism, Celibacy etc., do not bother Christians: Christians like Buddhists have been eating flesh and they are not strict “vegetarians” and therefore, it is a myth that Christianity is against “animal sacrifice” and so on. Moreover, the fundamental “Eucharist” exposes such myth, as a true Christian believes that the bread and wine are turning into the flesh and blood of Jesus Christ that would cleanse his / her sins. Arnold Toyanbee, Will Durant and other world great historians have pointed out that this “Eucharist” belief has been remnants of “cannibalism” or tribes, later converted into ritualization. Biblical references have been plenty to prove how the Christian heroes and heroines or gods and goddesses eat meat of all varieties. As for as celibacy is concerned, again Christians have no proof to that effect. As here, they depend upon apocryphal bibles, Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene lived together raised children (Grail legends may be referred to). The “Thomas myth” was developed only as a duplicate of “Jesus myth” as pointed out by many western historians and scholars (as pointed out by Ishwar Sharan above).  The International Institute for Tamil studies that published the book of Deivanayagam disowned and declared his work as “not based on research”.

“St. Thomas Apostle of  India Trust” produces “mythical Thomas” film: The film is to be produced in the name of “St. Thomas Apostle of India Trust” which has Archbishop A. M. Chinnappa, Deputy Archbishop Lawrence Pius, Treasurer of the diocese Mr. Ernest Paul and Dr. Paulraj as office-bearers. Of course, the Vatican would fund has been already accepted. Thus, it is clear that the Vatican tries hi-tech extravagancy for harvesting, as they have found out how the Indians have been addicted to movies. The next attempt would be depicting all apostles playing cricket with Jesus Christ as an umpire and Mary, Mary Magdalene and others watching from the stadium!  The “Trust” formed shows to escape from all legal wrangles as happened in the case of Arulappa vs Acharya Paul and thus, the money given would not be subjected to any controversy!

“Kalainjar was blessed with success” film: The Holy Spirit had descended on that day and blessed Kalanjar for victory in elections! Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi has asserted that the DMK-led alliance would sweep the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections in the state. “Mr Peter Alphonse wished me success in the ensuing Lok Sabha polls. His wishes will come true“. So Kalainjar knows that elections are coming and Peter knows that his wish would be fulfilled!

CHENNAI July 3: Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi has asserted that the DMK-led alliance would sweep the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections in the state.  “Mr Peter Alphonse wished me success in the ensuing Lok Sabha polls. His wishes will come true,” he said while speaking at the launch of the film St.Thomas here on Thursday.  “I am proud of being referred to as the head of a `minority” government as my government has always toiled for the welfare and well-being of the minorities,” said Mr Karunanidhi.

 

It is pre-ordained and the chosen people would get what they want. He can only give what they want and in turn, they can only give what he wants! However, all may not tell always what they received every time!

Archbishop, Vatican, funds, script, studio etc., resemble the past events: Archbishop Chinnappa, Vatican support for the project, the same research, the same theme, but only evidences differ, as times have changed.

 

V      Now, there are no manuscripts, though studios are there;  

 

V      script is there, but no writing letters;  

 

V      no photography of manuscripts manufactured in studio, as cameras would come out and shoot;  

 

V      instead of going to Vatican, the Vatican itself supports the project:

 

V      Indian Cardinal Ivan Dias, Prefect of the Sacred Congregation of the Propagation of Faith, supports the project along with the bishops in Tamil Nadu, media said quoting Archbishop Chinnappa; thus, there is no Retzinger, of course, now he is the Pope;  

 

V      now the inaugural or symbolic shooter has been “Kalainjar”. Thus, the whole events make one remember the past events. That is why Dr. R. Daniel Jayakumar of Kondu, Cuddalore subtly questioned the theology drawing attention to the work done by Deivanayagam three decades back.Yes, now we do not have any K. P. Sunil to bring out his account in “The Illustrated weekly of India”, as we do not know where K. P. Sunil is and the journal died already! Ironically, Arulappa and Acharya Paul – the main actors have also not with us. Now, they cannot pressurize through Fr. Mariadas of Sri Villiputhur, as “Dr. Paulraj Lourdusamy, “the Church researcheris there with many degrees and three doctorates! And he would take care of!!

Would Ganesh Iyer alias John Ganesh alias Acharya Paul would get resurrected to question them on the Day of Judgement before 2010? Next to Sivadhama[8] and Ganapathy Upadhyaya[9], Ganesh Iyer has been the most or worst oppressed, suppressed, harassed and exploited human-being by the Church. He was given the money to fabricate and manufacture evidences to prove the fraudulent research of “Arulappa ” Deivanayagam” research of bringing mythical Thomas beyond Mesopotamia, down south to Madras, making him to meet Tiruvalluvar, Tiruvalluvar getting knowledge from Thomas and started writing Tirukkural, later te Saiva Siddhatis were enlightened by the Holy Spirit and becoming Siddhatis and so on!So now, the picture is completed:

–Hollywood stars are coming;

–superstars are engaged;

–Ajith, Salini are contacted;

–Perhaps Namita, Sakila would follow, as the film is in all languages and there are many songs!

 

So what Ganesh Iyer alias John Ganesh alias Acharya Paul would do, if he is resurrected according to the principles of Christianity? As an exorcist anyone – Chinnappa or Paulraj or Kalainjar himself in his new role of master of “martyriology, hagiography etc” would do it!

No conversion motive – another big lie from Chinnappa: Dr A.N. Chinnappa of Archdiocese of Madras-Mylapore declared that “It is not an attempt to convert people to our faith but to convey the message of this great saint“. If that is the case, the crores or million of dollar money could be straight away given to the “poor Christians” or the so-called “Dalit Christians” instead venturing into this type extravaganza, because, the amount would benefit them immediately. Moreover, the Church has already promised houses etc., for the Tsunami victims and the work is pending. Already Madras High Court has passed strictures against Seventh Day Adventists for building poor quality houses. Thus, under the circumstances, these learned and dive representatives could think about those poor souls also.Thus, they are having some hidden agenda as otherwise, he need not say that “It is not an attempt to convert people to our faith but to convey the message of this great saint“. Thus, naturally, other Indians, secular Indians etc., have to be concerned about the movie and its implications.

Why already proven fraudulent myth is selected for the movie theme?: It has already been pointed out many times that unimaginable fraud has been committed in the name of “doubting Thomas”, “mythical Thomas”, “apocryphal Thomas” etc. About the legal wrangle of “Acharya Paul-Arulappa”, the details came in the press in 1980s. Arulappa had to save his face by havig a “compromise settlement” with his agent Acharya Paul. Therefore, the repetition of such theme would amount to perpetuating the fraud. So all the connecting people, personalities and experts would be treated as aiding and abetting the fraud and treated accordingly. So suppressing the facts or talking advantage of short memory of public or proceedings as that “it is only a story and not history” as T. Dayananda Francis[10]had done it in the case of “Thomas vanthar” – dance drama held in Krishna Gana Sabha. Therefore, the responsible Indians should take note of the frauds repeated in the different guises, as the theme has been the same.

Would Tiruvalluvar be crucified? The Church would not faithfully record in the film all the frauds committed that have been on the official records; it is going to be partial rehashing the myth with meaningless and basesless imaginary hypotheses; of course, it could pressurise or purchase scholars, historians, politicians etc., with promotion, foreign travel, donation etc., but the truth remains. as they have enough time, it is better think carefully, before they proceed and produce. Already, they watered enough for the media to thrive on such fantacies –

 

ƒ  if Rajini dons Tiruvalluvar, who would be Vasuki –

 

ƒ  yes, Kushubu or Namita would be and they would be dancing with vulgar dress.

 

ƒ  So through Rajini or Kalainjar if they want to crucify Tiruvalluvar, let them crucify!

 

The whole world knows the sin of the Church, massacres of Crusaders, blood split by the holy wars; whether Indians know or not the Goa Inquisition would be remembered. The millions of slaves exported out of India would be remembered; lakhs of Indian women tortured on the fields in Malaya, Mauritius and South africa would be remembered; lakhs of Indian childred orphaned, because of the above and died and killed would be remembered.

Now Kalainjar would be known. We do not know whether Tiruvalluvar would ressurect and curse or Vasuki. He (Kalainjar) has asserted earlier that as he has / had three wives, he would understand women better. So let us see, whether he would understand Vasuki.

Kamatchi Viswanathan already brought out a book “Trukkuralum Viviliyamum” criticizing Deivanayagam in 1979 itself. She has recorded:

M. Deivanayagam and the others who belonged to him (the group) give meanings to many couplets in such a way that they have been totally different from that of other commentators[1]…………………….”A doubt arises after reading the books of M. Deivanayagam as to not only whether he has understood the Tirukkural properly, but alsoto what extent he has leaerned about the Christian religious history[2]……………”Dr. S. Rajamanickam S. J, another Christian Tamil scholar in his paper, “Tirukkuralil Christtavam” has refuted the works of M. Deivanayagam.”[3]
