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?

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!
