The Katherine Mayos and Pat Robertsons of India-II

source: Newstodaynet.com, 25 September, 2008

The chairman of the UPA Co-ordination Committee Sonia Gandhi has succeeded in converting India into a banana republic.  Ever
since the minority UPA anti-Hindu Government came to power in New Delhi
with the outside support of known fifth columnists from the days of
Quit India Movement in 1942—I am referring to the Communists of all
grades and shades—the sovereignty of India has been on sale in the
International market under the malignant umbrella of ‘National Soul Destroying Secularism’.


When Swamy Laksmanananda was
brutally murdered by Christian missionaries in Orissa on Krishna
Jayanthi day on 23 August 2008, the Hindus of Orissa rose in revolt in
Kandhamal District. At that time the Italian Government had the
temerity to summon the Indian Ambassador in Rome to take ‘decisive action to curb anti-Christian violence in Orissa’. Even a first year graduate student of international relations will declare without much ado that the 62
nd Government in Italy after the end of Second World War in May 1945 (almost at the rate of one new Government every Calendar year!)
breached all known canons of diplomatic propriety, resulting in a
public relations disaster of enormous magnitude, when it summoned the
Indian Ambassador. The UPA Government, maintained an indifferent
attitude of cold, neutral, and secular silence without even lodging a
protest with the Government of Italy for brazenly interfering in the
internal affairs of a sovereign country like India. 

    

The
fascist Italian Government’s poor diplomacy followed the Pope’s
condemnation of bloodletting in Orissa. As the head of a denominational
commercial enterprise, which is what the Vatican is, Pope Benedict XVI
is perhaps justified in raising questions about the security of
Christians everywhere. However, in the immediate context of India, he
chose to look at the issue only selectively. The
fact of the matter is that in Orissa, like elsewhere in India,
Christian evangelists — largely from Pentecostal and Baptist groups in
the United States but sometimes from Catholic orders as well
look upon local populations as a viable market, and converts as ‘market share’. Their known business is ‘The Harvest of Pagan/Heathen Souls’. 

 

Following
the Government of Italy and the Pope in Rome, it is now the turn of the
US Government to interfere in the internal affairs of India.
  The
disgraceful track record of blatant interference of American Government
in the internal affairs of countries in Asia after the Second World War
is too well known.  The American Government has been functioning as the self declared ‘Head
Constable of the World’. The US State Department issues two significant
reports annually—one on International Religious Freedom and the other
on Global terrorism. 
The report on terrorism is titled ‘Patterns on Global Terrorism’ and is issued normally in the first week of May. The report on Inernational Religious Freedom is issued in September of each year by the Office of International Religious Freedom of the US State Department’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labour.  This report is besides the other report on International Religious Freedom issued by the more infamous USCIRF in May of every year.  Both the USCIRF and the Office of International Religious Freedom were constituted by an Act of Congress, the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998.

 

 Two days ago, the US Government has condemned violence against Christians in India during the last two months.  Ambassador at large for International Religious Freedom Thomas Hanford, has said: ‘We
urge all parties to refrain from violence and urge government officials
to protect religious freedom throughout India and thus preserve India’s
longstanding tradition of religious tolerance.’
 Our
External Affairs Minister, perhaps awaits his instructions not from
South Block (which he can ignore without any detriment to the safety of
his (In!)- glorious ‘PUBLIC OFFICE’) but from No 10, Janpath, New Delhi.
For all our Union Cabinet Ministers and more so for our Prime Minister,
the Sovereignty of India can be compromised at any time, anywhere in
any part of the world!.  What can never be compromised at any cost is the Sovereignty of Sonia Gandhi.

 

The
political inspiration for Thomas Hanford’s uncalled for interference in
the internal affairs of India stems from White House in Washington.
President Bush has politically chased two things like an American Bull Dog during the last eight years—the first being Saddam Hussain and his ‘Weapons of Mass Destruction’ in Iraq and the second being Faith
Based Social Service Initiative emanating from a White House Office to
promote Government aid to Churches and Christian faith-based
Organizations.

 

In these columns on 20 February 2007, in an article titled ‘Bush-sponsored Evangelization of India’, I had commented as follows: ‘One
of the early and most important major policy decisions which President
Bush took on 29 January, 2001, was in regard to a ‘Faith Based’ social
service initiative that included a new White House office to promote
government aid to churches and Christian faith-based organisations.
This had the immediate effect of throwing the massive weight of the
federal government behind religious groups and religious conversions.
The Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives was set up in the
White House in the first week of February 2002 and a man called Jim
Towey was appointed as Director. The most interesting and important
point to be noted in this context is that Jim Towey was the legal
counsel to Mother Teresa in the late 1980s. Thus he was fully qualified
in every sense of the term to play the role of an aggressive
evangelist. What is most disturbing to note is that though Bush’s
initiative as a 11th century Crusader to fund ‘salvation and religious conversion’
has been stalled in the Congress over constitutional and civil rights
concerns, yet he has pushed for its implementation through his own
executive orders. Consequently, new waves of aggressive evangelism have
been emanating and issuing out from America and invading India, with
its epicenter in Hyderabad in Andhra Pradesh, under the control of
Seventh Day Adventist Chief Minister Dr. Samuel (Rajasekhar Reddy).
This White House-sponsored movement for the evangelization of India is
well funded, superbly networked and backed by the highest of the land
in America. This is being fully supported informally by the UPA
government in New Delhi under the stranglehold of a de facto Prime
Minister, tracing her spiritual and cultural roots to Italy in general
and to Vatican in particular’.

 

I
am very amused to see that Christian Leaders like Bengaluru Archbishop
Dr Bernard Moras, V Devasahayam, Convenor of the Chennai Churches
Fraternity, (CCF),  All India Christian Council (AICC!!)
President Joseph Dsouza, National Integration Council Member John
Dayal, etc. etc., are crying hoarse about the persecution of Christians
in the India of today.  In this context I would like to
invite their kind attention to what I had written in these columns on
10 July 2007 under the title ‘Genuine tears in Pakistan vs
Hypocritical tears in India’: ‘Let us contrast this politically
imagined situation of fictionalised atrocities against the Christians
in India with what is actually happening in Pakistan today. It has been
extensively reported in all forms of media during the last one week
that Christian clerics in Multan District in Pakistan are being forced
to convert to Islam or face death. Naveed Amer Jeeva, Pastor Joseph
Daniel, Dr Elvin and Pastor Mehtab Masih, all front rank leaders of the
All Pakistan Minorities Alliance (APMA) stated at a joint news
conference on 6 July 2007 in Multan:
“As many as 10 Christian Clerics have received threatening letters from unidentified people reading  ‘Embrace Islam, Stop Preaching Christianity and quit your faith. Otherwise the count down of your life has begun’. Naveed Amer Jeeva of the APMA said: ‘A
state of fear prevails in Shanti Nagar (Multan Town) because District
and Provincial Governments have turned a deaf ear to our problems. We
are feeling insecure and unsafe today because of these threatening
letters from Muslim fanatics. Pastor Mukhtar Barkat had received a
similar threatening letter from Muslim fanatics in 2004 and was
assassinated on 5 January 2004 in Khurrampura Khanewal. The minorities
in general and the Christians in particular are not safe in Pakistan.
Recently, Christians in Charsadda also received threatening letters
warning them to shut their Churches and convert to Islam… Even a
petition has been filed against the appointment of Justice Bhagawan Das
as acting Chief Justice of Pakistan on the ground that he is a
non-Muslim (a Hindu)’.

 

When
a Church in Cochin near Nedumbassery International Airport was attacked
recently, in an orchestrated Anti-Hindu chorus, many Christian Leaders
unconscionably attacked the Sangh Parivar.
  Now I have received the report that the Kerala Police have arrested a Christian named Elias in connection with this attack.  The pseudo-secular mafia of mass media in India—both print and electronic—which ran ‘sensational’ stories
to link Hindu organisations with the attack along with Pinarai Vijayan
is not uttering a word since the arrest of Elias – A laity of the
Jacobite church! 

          

Last year Swamy Dayanand Saraswati
told me in Chennai that three leading Rabbis who met the Swamiji in New
Delhi had told him that India is the only country in the world where
the Jews have never been persecuted at any point of time in the last
2000 years. Our hypocritical Christian leaders should also take their
lessons from them, if not from the fanatic Muslims of Multan District
in Pakistan today. In this context, I cannot help quoting the brilliant
words of VOLTAIRE (1694-1778):

 

‘Christianity
is the most ridiculous, the most absurd and bloody religion that has
ever infected the world- – -Where is the prince sufficiently educated
to know that for seventeen hundred years the Christian sect has done
nothing but harm?’
(LETTERS TO FREDRICK THE GREAT, 1767)’.
