Did Congress engineer Kejriwal shoe-throwing incident? IAC releases photos of attacker with Gandhis

The attacker seems to be a close aide of Gandhi family. Has the Nehru-Gandhi family followed Khurshid formula to send goons to disrupt meetings? Isn’t the onus of proof on Gandhi family to prove that the attacker was NOT acting at the behest of the family?

BJP questions Congress chief’s travel expenses, starts ‘personal’ attack – TOI

TNN Oct 3, 2012, 03.31AM IST

NEW DELHI: The Gujarat election again appeared to be shaping into a Sonia Gandhi vs. Narendra Modi battle, with BJP repeating that Congress chief’s expenses on travel and treatment be made public. Sonia is to launch Congress’s poll campaign in Rajkot on Wednesday.

Rebuffing Congress’s indignation over Modi’s claim that UPA spent Rs 1,800 crore on Sonia’s travel, BJP spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman said, “We condemn the Congress’s approach in diverting and adding issues which have not been raised by Gujarat CM. He has very clearly quoted media sources and raised a question. If you are genuinely interested in answering the question, you would say what was the amount spent.”

Robert Vadra case: ‘Malafide nexus between DLF, Haryana government’

Tuesday, October 09, 2012, 17:55

Zeenews Bureau

New Delhi: In a fresh attack on Robert Vadra, Arvind Kejriwal said on Tuesday that there was a malafide nexus between DLF and the Haryana government and a direct beneficiary of the same was the son-in-law of Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

On Robert Vadra’s links with DLF, he said that the son-in-law of the Congress president was given 50 percent stake in the company that was given permission for SEZ. He added that Vadra sold the stake back to DLF after a year. “If this does not prove the link then what does,” he asked.

“Unitech and County Heights bid were higher but were ignored,” he revealed.

Attacking the Congress government in Haryana further he Kejriwal said, “The land was acquired illegally after saying that it was for public purpose.” He accused that the financial dealings were not transparent and said that the Haryana government had manipulated the bidding process.

He asked the Haryana government to submit a white paper on the dealings with DLF. “Part of land given was protected forest land and DLF’s six proxy companies bought directly from the farmers,” he further added.

The IAC had alleged on October 5 that Vadra had bought properties worth over Rs 300 crore between 2007 and 2010 with an interest-free unsecured loan of Rs 65 crore from realty major DLF.

They claimed the properties were given at undervalued rates in exchange of favours allegedly received from Congress state governments in Haryana, Rajasthan and Delhi.

DLF had on Saturday denied it had advanced any unsecured loan to Vadra, or sold its assets to him at throwaway prices, or that there was a quid pro quo in the transactions.

However, Arvind Kejriwal has more up his sleeves. He said that he had more to expose but will do so on November 16.

Meanwhile the Congress questioned the intentions of Kerjiwal and his team and doubted the authenticity of the papers that were shown to the media by them. Speaking to the press Congress spokesperson Rashid Alvi said, “I condemn this personal attack by them. If there is any truth to the matter then Haryana government will look into it. Also Kejriwal should go to the court and not gain cheap publicity,” he said.

Presidential poll: Does Sonia have a secret candidate or is she searching in wilderness?

Presidential polls: In Patel steps, a Pranab clue

Sanjay K Jha,%20a%20Pranab%20clue%20to%20real%20candidate

New Delhi: The capital on Friday kept its eyes glued to the footprints of Ahmed Patel, seeking divine clues to the presidential polls after a Congress core committee meeting around noon. Among the multiple destinations of Sonia Gandhi’s political secretary was an uncommon one: North Block, which houses the office of finance minister Pranab Mukherjee.

Patel, who had gone to 10 Janpath after the core committee meeting at the Prime Minister’s residence, reached Mukherjee’s office around 5pm. Patel spent 50 minutes with the Congress’s veteran trouble-shooter. The duration of the meeting became a subject of dissection among the capital’s power trackers, throwing up two conflicting conclusions. The less-accepted assessment was that Patel needed the 50 minutes to convince Mukherjee of the reasons why his name was not being proposed for President.

But the conclusion that gained wider currency was that Patel and Mukherjee discussed suggestions that can be put forward to the leadership to fill the vacancy and address the possible chain-reaction of changes in the government if the finance minister moves to Rashtrapati Bhavan. Once Patel stepped out, Mukherjee met several finance ministry officials and later left for Calcutta. On record, the Congress refused to confirm or deny if the core committee had cleared Mukherjee as the presidential candidate.

Some Congress leaders insisted it was still too early to speak with finality as Sonia had to formally propose her party’s nominee to the allies and other supporting parties before declaring the candidate. Sonia wants all alliance partners in Delhi around June 16, when the UPA candidate is expected to file nomination papers for the presidential election, the Congress leaders said. All senior UPA leaders are being sounded out.

Congress leaders advised “patience” but privately conceded that Mukherjee was still the most probable choice. Sources in parties such as the DMK and the NCP said their perception, too, was that Mukherjee was the real candidate. But the Congress leaders cautioned in the same breath that a last-minute surprise could not be ruled out, perhaps keeping in mind how Sonia sprang Pratibha Patil’s name the last time.

“One week is a lot of time in politics,” one senior AICC functionary said while explaining “the decision depends on so many imponderables”. Many cabinet ministers have started lobbying for the two coveted posts — finance minister and leader of the Lok Sabha — that will fall vacant if Mukherjee moves on.

It will not be easy for Sonia to find a replacement to fill the political void if Mukherjee shifts to Rashtrapati Bhavan and hence some leaders still refuse to believe this could happen. Another section feels it is time the party built another rung of crisis-managers for the future.

Call for President of stature, a head with an aura

Radhika Ramaseshan
Thursday, 07 June 2012

New Delhi: Wanted, a head of state with an “aura”. As the political establishment waits for Sonia Gandhi to reveal her choice for the next occupant of Rashtrapati Bhavan, a key player from the heartland and a former BJP Union minister outlined their views on the kind of President they expected.

Both stressed it should be a person of stature. The Samajwadi Party, whose support counts numerically in the electoral college that votes the next President, has let it be known it wouldn’t settle for a “dark horse” or a “lightweight” choice. The leader, who is close to Samajwadi president Mulayam Singh Yadav, said the party’s choice was finance minister Pranab Mukherjee.

“There will be hundred per cent consensus over Pranabda’s name. Wait and see, even the BJP and the NDA will back him. If he is not the UPA’s choice and Congress leaders spring a surprise like they did in 2007 (Pratibha Patil’s candidacy), we might reconsider our support. We will look at other options. The President’s office carries a certain aura, a gravitas and nobody should foist a non-serious nominee,” the leader said. Sources said Mulayam had conveyed the same views to the Congress president.

Former BJP foreign and finance minister Jaswant Singh dismissed speculation that he was an aspirant sparked by a meeting he had weeks ago with Mulayam. But he said the “office of the President should not be through an election that is infected with party politics and convenience”. Singh emphasised that the President must have a “stature that is recognised not simply within India but has an international footprint”.

The BJP has chosen to wait for the UPA to unveil its hand after Lok Sabha Opposition leader Sushma Swaraj’s first outburst ruling out Vice-President Hamid Ansari and endorsing Kalam. But Singh was clear on what the nominee “should be” like. “He or she should be someone with an understanding of the ethos of India and grasp the essence of the challenges confronting the country,” he said. “If you reduce it to the political convenience of parties, I am afraid you will miss these.”

Pranab Mukherjee’s Emergency past. He has been indicted by Shah Commission. He is unfit to be President.

Pranab Mukherjee’s Emergency past. He has been indicted by Shah Commission. He is unfit to be President.

Anyone who reads the indictment by Shah Commission as brought out in the report brought to light by Era Chezhiyan should not even consider Pranabda’s candidacy. He has been indicted by the Commission and is unfit to hold the office of President of Bharat. This article by V. Sundaram should be distributed to every voter in Presidential election. Let not the nation insult the sacred memory of Justice Shah who has given us a roadmap for a truly democratic nation through his Shah Commission Report which should be read and re-read by every politician and every voter in the forthcoming Presidential poll. Particular attention is invited to the way Pranabda tortured a noble aatman, Smt. Gayatri Devi. Read on the expose…






Bankim Chandra Chatterjee (1838-1894) of Bande Mataram fame observed in 1882: “There are distortions and systematic suppressions of the achievements and physical prowess of the Hindus in the country of Western scholars. None of the books on Bengal written by British authors contain a true history of Bengal. The Bengalis have to write their history themselves, from their own viewpoint and relating to their own interests. We need a history of Bengal; otherwise there will be no hope for Bengal. But who will write it? You will write it, I will write it, every one will write this history. Whoever is Bengali will write it.”

Perhaps, Pranab Mukherjee has nothing but unconcealed contempt and hatred for the great Bengali leaders like, Bankim Chandra Chatterjee, Swami Vivekananda, Deshbandhu Chittaranjan Das, Sri Aurobindo and Rash Behari Bose, who created the political and cultural Renaissance in Bengal in the last quarter of the 19th Century and the 1st quarter of the 20th Century. Drawing vicarious inspiration from the message of Bankim Chandra Chatterjee to rewrite Indian History, today Pranab Mukherjee is working round the clock to rewrite the history of India according to the Firangi Memsahib Sonia’s anti-Hindu and anti-India model and perspective. Today he is committed only to the cause (nay, because!) of imposing a Sonia cum Rahul Gandhi Family-led Gargantuan Corruption Renaissance on this poverty stricken country!

At the Beginning was the 2G Scam.
The 2G Scam was Sonia Gandhi.
Sonia Gandhi IS 2G Scam.

At the Beginning was the CWG Scam.
The CWG Scam was Sonia Gandhi.
Sonia Gandhi IS CWG Scam.

Any Sonia scam is Pranab scam.
Any Pranab scam is Sonia scam.

Pranab laundering for Sonia
Chidambaram laundering for Sonia
Is the whole time occupation of the Sonia Congress Party
To the ecstasy of all Hawala Operators.

Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi is the Mother Superior of all Scams in India today. Her only tower of strength and alter ego is Pranab Mukherjee. The whole country knows that Pranab Mukherjee — Jo Memsahib kahenge, vahi hum karange! — is the Chief Money Launderer for Sonia Gandhi. This patent fact has been clearly brought out into the open arena of public limelight by Dr Subramanian Swamy, the President of Janata Party.

Dr Subramanian Swamy has recently issued a stern, grim and scorching STATEMENT on 11thMarch 2011 against the unabashed, uncontrolled, unchecked and unconcealed black money laundering activities of the Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee undertaken with unmatched devotion and enthusiasm for and on behalf of Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi. I am giving below the full text of the Statement issued by Dr Subramanian Swamy:

“The grant of bail to the notorious money launderer, Mr. Hasan Ali, is due to the collusive behaviour of the ED on direction of the Union Finance Minister Mr. Pranab Mukherjee. MR. MUKHERJEE HAS BEEN A LONG TIME MONEY LAUNDERER FOR MS. SONIA GANDHI. His frequent trips to Chittarajan Park, New Delhi, over the last two decades, were only to arrange for money transfers for Ms. Sonia Gandhi through Hawala Operators.”

“Hasan Ali was a conduit for Mr. Pranab Mukherjee—through Ms. Sonia Gandhi’s, Political Secretary Mr. Ahmed Patel MP. Mr. Patel has met Mr. Hasan Ali many times according to the interrogation records with the Maharashtra Police.”

“Hence, I demand that for a free and fair investigation by ED, Mr. Mukherjee must made to resign from the Finance Ministership, or ED be transferred to the PMO.” (Subramanian Swamy)

What has been the track record of this by no means honest Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee? It is anything but honourable! Pranab Mukherjee was the most favourite domestic orderly in the ‘Imperial Household’ of that wicked dictator Indira Gandhi. During the dark days of the draconian Emergency of Indira Gandhi from June 1975 to March 1977, Pranab Mukherjee was the biggest CHAMCHA of that unruly gangster Sanjay Gandhi. Pranab Mukherjee from the Indira Congress Party and Navin Chavla from the bureaucracy were the two hatchet men of Sanjay Gandhi. With dictatorial authority, Pranab Mukherjee upon the oral instructions of Indira Gandhi and her son Sanjay Gandhi sent innocent men and women to Tihar Jail, and tortured them. Upon oral instructions of Indira Gandhi and Sanjay Gandhi, he elevated the willing slaves of the Indira Congress Party as Chairmen and Managing Directors of Nationalized Banks.

Thus Pranab Mukherjee in his official capacity as Minister of State for Revenue and Expenditure in the anti-people Government of Indira Gandhi, violated all administrative rules and procedures and functioned in the most illegal, irregular, immoral, unethical and irresponsible manner. Taking advantage of his personal equation with Indira Gandhi and Sanjay Gandhi, he treated the then Union Minister for Finance C. Subramaniam with unalloyed contempt.

When Indira Gandhi came to power again in 1980, she was under the delusion that she was aChiranjeevinee and will continue to rule as the unchallenged Prime Minister of India for the next 10,000 years till the Year of the Lord 10,981 AD. For criminal favours rendered with unswerving slavish devotion by Pranab Mukherjee to Indira Gandhi during Emergency — sending Maharani Gayatri Devi of Jaipur, a former Swatantra Party Member of Parliament and the Rajmata of Gwalior Vijayaraje Scindia to Tihar Jail — Pranab Mukherjee was rewarded with the post of Union Finance Minister by Indira Gandhi in 1982!

To investigate the widespread misuse and abuse of power during the imposition of double Emergencies, External and Internal, by Indira Gandhi in 1975-1977, the Janata Government headed by Morarji Desai appointed in May 1978 a Commission of Inquiry under JUSTICE J.C SHAH, FORMER CHIEF JUSTICE OF SUPREME COURT. Justice Shah investigated enormous number of cases and assiduously recorded a voluminous mass of evidence from the former Union Ministers and officials and submitted his Report in August 1978. Due to internecine quarrel and split in the Janata Party, the Morarji Desai Government fell in August 1978.


Taking a very statesman-like view that a precious historical and political document cannot die and should not be allowed to be “buried” and hidden, from the public of India, Era Sezhian, a former Member of Parliament during the THREE EMERGENCIES from 1962 to 1977, has come forward to compile and edit the full text of the SHAH COMMISSION REPORT. He has written a very detailed, scholarly and brilliant introduction to this new Edition (December 2010) of the Shah Commission Report appropriately titled as the ‘SHAH COMMISSION REPORT (Lost and Regained)’.

I am presenting below the front cover page of the ‘SHAH COMMISSION REPORT (Lost and Regained)’ which has been reissued by Era Sezhian.

I have already referred above to the criminal excesses of Pranab Mukherjee during the days of Emergency of Indira Gandhi from June 1975 to March 1977. In the most corrupt Sonia-directed UPA Government today, Pranab Mukherjee has become an obliging and ever willing satrap in the murky world of money laundering for and on behalf of the Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi to whom – and to no one else – he owes his Cabinet post to boot!

In his very detailed Report given in August 1978, Justice J.C. Shah has adversely commented upon the illegal, unconstitutional and murky activities of Pranab Mukherjee during the days of Emergency from 1975 to 1977. I am giving below a few excerpts from the Shah Commission Report.

Like a Lower Division Clerk with very low cunning and trying to fudge a government file, Pranab Mukherjee also fudged the connected file relating to the illegal detention of Smt Gayatri Devi and Colonel Bhavani Singh. This has been highlighted and very adversely commented upon by Justice J.C Shah on Page 81 of his Interim Report 1 given on March 11, 1978. Let us hear the words of Justice Shah on Pranab Mukherjee, the then Union Minister for Revenue and Expenditure:

7.222 “Shri Pranab Mukherjee recorded a Note on September 7, 1975 which reads as under: ‘May be released on parole as proposed. However PM may kindly see.’

7.223 “Shri Mukherjee marked this Note to PM. The Secret Movement Register maintained by the then Personal Staff of the Minister of Revenue and Expenditure, Shri Pranab Mukherjee, which has been put up before the COMMISSION, shows that the relevant file bearing No: 686/100/75-CUS VIII/75 with the Notes of Shri C.T.A Pillai and Finance Secretary indicating the subject ‘Representation from Smt Gayathri Devi and Shri Bhavani Singh’ was marked to Shri Dhawan APS to PM on September 7, 1975 and was sent in a sealed cover. What decision was taken by the Prime Minister in the matter is not indicated in the file, but it has been noticed thatSHRI PRANAB MUKHERJEE PASSED HIS EARLIER NOTE DATED SEPTEMBER 7, 1975 RECOMMENDING RELEASE ON PAROLE. IF THE NOTE SHEET PAGE IS PUT AGAINST BRIGHT LIGHT, THE NOTING OF SHRI PRANAB MUKHERJEE REPLACED EARLIER CAN BE EASILY READ. THIS FILE WAS PUTUP BEFORE THE COMMISSION. … AFTER PASTING HIS EARLIER NOTE, SHRI PRANAB MUKHERJEE RECORDED ANOTHER NOTE ON SEPTEMBER 12, 1975 WHEREIN HE ORDERED THE REJECTION OF THE REQUEST REGARDING THE REVOCATION OF THE EARLIER ORDER OF DETENTION. SINCE SHRI PRANAB MUKHERJEE HAS NOT CHOSEN TO APPEAR BEFORE THECOMMISSION, AND GIVE EVIDENCE AND EXPLAIN THE VARIOUS MATTERS ATTRIBUTABLE TO HIM, IT CAN ONLY BE INFERRED THAT HIS SUBSEQUENT NOTING REJECTING THE REQUEST FOR REVOCATION OF THE DETENTION ORDER MAY HAVE BEEN ON THE ADVICE OF THE PRIME MINISTER INDIRA GANDHI.”

Soon after Justice Shah submitted his Report in 1978, the Janata Party Government of Morarji Desai appointed a Committee under the Chairmanship of Sri L.P Singh I.C.S, former Union Home Secretary to take effective follow up action on the recommendations of the Shah Commission.Sri D.P Kohli, the Father of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), an outstanding public servant and Sri M.L.M Hooja, the legendary Director of the Intelligence Bureau (IB) were the members of this Committee. Sri B.S Raghavan I.A.S was the Member-Secretary of this Committee. This Committee gave its Final Report in the later half of 1978. This Committee had taken due note of the criminal fudging by Pranab Mukherjee, Union Minister of State for Finance (Revenue) in the file bearing No: 686/100/75-CUS VIII/75 referred to above and relating to the illegal incarceration of Smt Gayathri Devi and Shri Bhavani Singh’ and recommended that further Police investigation should be done into the matter. The LP Singh Committee Report was put into the dustbin by Indira Gandhi when she returned to power in 1980. She rewarded Pranab Mukherjee by making him Union Finance Minister for having cleverly fudged the file during the days of Emergency in 1975-1977. Law of Karma fixed Indira Gandhi on 31st October 1984 at her own Official Residence. Pranab Mukherjee seems to labour under the cosmic delusion that he is exempt from all Laws of the Land and more particularly from the inexorable working of the divine Law of Karma.

Now let me give some more excerpts from the Shah Commission Report on the shady deeds of Pranab Mukherjee (please see page 82 of the Interim Report I given on March 11, 1978).

7.228: “The manner in which Smt.Gayatri Devi was treated in jail makes a very poignant reading. She has narrated her experience in the jail before the COMMISSION. The Assistant Jail Superintendent has also given a Statement in this regard. She was not at all well when she was taken to the jail and was under medical treatment at the time of her arrest. According to her, the conditions in Tihar Jail were absolutely appalling ; there was complete lack of sanitation, no running water, the public latrines had failed and therefore all the people who were in prison had to use a drain to ease themselves. Rajmata Vijiya Raje Scindia of Gwalior was also brought to Tihar Jail and was kept in a ‘Phansi Kothi’(Cell for Condemned Prisoners) for want of any other accommodation. This cell happened to be next to the room where Shrimathi Gayatri Devi was living…..Smt.Gayatri Devi had lost 10kgs in weight and her blood pressure was very low”.

7.230: “It is thus clear on the basis of evidence that has been brought on record that Mr PRANAB KUMAR MUKHERJEE the then Minister of Revenue and Banking has misused his position and abused his authority in ordering the detention of Smt Gayatri Devi and Colonel Bhavani Singh on wholly insufficient grounds. IT IS A CLEAR CASE OF SUBVERSION OF LAWFUL PROCESSES AND OF ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURES”.

Again let me give another excerpt from the Shah Commission Report on the crimes of Pranab Mukherjee (please see page 57 of the Interim Report I given on March 11, 1978).

7.49: “Although Shri Pranab Mukherjee assisted the Commission at the preliminary stage of the fact finding inquiry, he did not file any Statement in this case as was required to be done under Rule 5 (2)(a) of the Commission of Inquiry (Central) Rules 1972. He had responded to the Summons u/s 8B of the Commissions of Inquiry Act, 1952. But he refused to take oath and tender evidence. However, from the facts on record and the evidence analysed above, it appears that the normal established procedures in regard to the appointment of the Chairman of the State Bank of India (SBI) was not followed in this case and further it was not in accordance with the provisions of the State Bank of India Act, 1955, which made consultation with the Reserve Bank of India a condition precedent to the appointment of the Chairman of the SBI by the Central Government.

The Commission is of the view that considerations other than strictly professional and totally extraneous have unfortunately been allowed to operate in arriving at the decision to appoint Shri Varadachari as Chairman of the SBI. Shri Pranab Mukherjee has violated established Administrative Conventions and Procedures and misused his position in the appointment of Shri Varadachari”

My comment:

Pranab Mukherjee, the shameless and willing slave of Indira Gandhi bowed to her with reverence every moment every day and said all the time, “India is Indira and Indira is India”.

Pranab Mukherjee is the greatest Namak Harami in recent Congress history. When the 125thAnniversary of the establishment of the Indian National Congress was celebrated in 2010, he edited a book on the History of the Indian National Congress Party from 1885 to 2010. In this book Pranab Mukerjee has openly indicted Sanjay Gandhi for being solely responsible for all the excesses of Government during the Days of Indira Gandhi Emergency in 1975-1977. The Shah Commission Report has clearly brought out the fact that Pranab Mukherjee was just a chaprasi in the Office of Sanjay Gandhi during that period.




During the days of Indira Gandhi’s Emergency in 1975-1977, as her Most Favourite Daffadar, Pranab Mukherjee hailed her as “India is Indira and Indira is India”. These stupid and silly words first used by Dev Kant Baruah, the President of the Congress Party in 1975, were internalized in letter and spirit by Pranab Mukherjee when he was the Minister of State for Finance (Revenue) during the Period of Emergency He became the most feared hangman of Sanjay Gandhi. If Indira Gandhi and Sanjay Gandhi wanted to imprison anybody without a trial and subject him/her to all kinds of inhuman treatment, including torture, Pranab Mukherjee was specially chosen by them for that very execrable Emergency State Purpose. Pranab Mukherjee became a monster of wickedness and cruelty and this stark fact was duly noted and adversely commented upon by Justice J.C Shah of the Shah Commission. Today, this repository of wickedness and of all past wrongs and shame, is the hatchet man of Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi. Today Pranab Mukherjee’s swan song is: “Sonia is India and India is Sonia”. Likewise for the Sonia Congress Party today, another swan song is “Rahul is India and India is Rahul”.

Having worked with great energy and gusto as a Personal Orderly of Sanjay Gandhi both during Emergency from 1975 to 1977 and after Emergency from May 1977 till Sanjay Gandhi’s death, today Pranab Mukherjee has become the most severe critic of Sanjay Gandhi. As I mentioned in the First Part of this article yesterday (15-3-2011), Pranab Mukherjee has severely criticised Sanjay Gandhi’s coercive family planning experiment during the Emergency, calling it arbitrary and authoritarian. Pranab Mukherjee has edited a book titled ‘The Congress and the making of the Indian nation’, to mark the 125th Anniversary of the founding of the Indian National Congress (INC) in December2010. In this book it has been stated, ”Over enthusiasm led to compulsion in enforcement of programmes like compulsory sterilization and clearance of slums. Sanjay promoted slum clearance, anti dowry measures and promotion of literacy…but in an arbitrary and authoritarian manner. This led to the annoyance of the popular opinion.”

Pranab Mukherjee seems to think that he will continue as Union Finance Minister till his exit in the year of the Lord 22011 AD(!) or till the exit of Sonia Gandhi in the year of the Lord 42000 AD (!!) or whichever is earlier!!! He seems to be under the vain delusion that unlike Union Telecom Mister A.Raja, he can bury fathoms deep all his skeletons gathered during his long tenure as a member of the Congress Party and as a Union Cabinet Minister. Immortal Pranab Mukherjee will never understand that Hitler paid for his crimes on April 30 1945. Stalin too paid his price for his cruelties. Likewise Indira Gandhi paid for her crimes. So did Rajiv Gandhi for his crimes in May 1991. Pranab Mukherjee cannot escape from the operation of the inexorable Law of Karma. Nor can his mentor Sonia liberate him from the deathly clutches of this LAW of Cause and Effect.

The Shah Commission had come to the conclusion in April 1978 that Pranab Mukherjee the then Union Minister of State for Finance (Revenue) and Sanjay Gandhi had conspired, colluded, collaborated on a day to day basis in the State-directed macabre political drama of inhuman excesses—crimes, follies and tragedies—against the innocent and peace-loving common people of India. Today Pranab Mukherjee has become a shameless Namak Harami and turned his guns against Sanjay Gandhi with the full official sanction of the Firangi Memsahib Sonia Gandhi.

It is common knowledge that Pranab Mukherjee treated Sanjay Gandhi as his Boss during the Period of Emergency. Having functioned as his personal slave, today Pranab Mukherjee is trying to portray Sanjay Gandhi as a Devil Incarnate who was solely responsible for all the INHUMAN EXCESSES OF EMERGENCY.


In order to ascertain the true facts, I spoke to my friend V.Kalyanam (now 90 years old) who had worked as Personal Secretary to Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of our Nation from 1943 to 1948. By virtue of his close working association with Mahatma Gandhi, Kalyanam came into close contact with many Senior Congress Leaders of that generation including Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi. As I was quite shocked by Pranab Mukherjee’s recent nefarious attempts to make Sanjay Gandhi wholly responsible for the excesses during the Dark Days of Indira Gandhi’s Emergency, I asked V.Kalyanam as to whether Pranab Mukherjee’s personal relations with Sanjay Gandhi both during and after Emergency were cordial. Kalyanam told me categorically: “After the revocation of Emergency and the massive electoral defeat of Indira Gandhi in April-May 1977, Pranab Mukherjee and Sanjay Gandhi were always seen together every day, traveling in the same van driven by Sanjay Gandhi. Sanjay Gandhi was known to me right from his childhood days in York Road in New Delhi. In 1977-78, I used to live with a friend of mine P.N. Balasubramaniam, the Founder and Chairman of Barium Chemicals Limited in Andhra Pradesh, at No.186, Golf Links in New Delhi (behind Sujan Singh Park in Khan Market). I introduced Sanjay Gandhi to P.N. Balasubramaniam (popularly known to all as Bala). Sanjay Gandhi used to come in his large van to the residence of Bala on 3 days in a week to discuss politics. On every occasion I have seen Pranab Mukherjee coming along with Sanjay Gandhi to Bala’s residence and he used to wait patiently in the van for long periods when Sanjay Gandhi was having discussions with Bala. For reasons not known to me Sanjay Gandhi never permitted Pranab Mukherjee to meet Bala at his residence. I never had any doubt that Sanjay Gandhi treated Pranab Mukherjee as his personal orderly.”

This is the house which was frequented by Sanjay Gandhi in 1977-1978.
Invariably Pranab Mukherjee went with Sanjay Gandhi and waited outside this house as his orderly

In the first part yesterday, I had quoted excerpts from the Shah Commission Report 1978 to show that in any other civilized country, a political gangster like Pranab Mukherjee would have been sentenced and lodged in jail even by a Third Class Stipendiary Magistrate. In our country he seems to be waiting to act as Prime Minister. He seems to be the only competitor to that statesman of genius Rahul Gandhi!!

Today as Union Finance Minister, is reported to be the biggest Patron of all Hawala and Money Laundering Operations of Sonia Gandhi. As pointed out by Dr.Subramanian Swamy, Former Union Minister for Law and Commerce and the President of Janata Party, he is the Official protector of Hasan Ali, apart from being the whole time launderer of Firangi Memsahib’s ill-gotten money!

Pranab Mukherjee is an inveterate and vicious liar like his mentor the Firangi Memsahib. His disgraceful (?!!) track record of low and questionable integrity has been fully brought to public view by V. U. Eradi (former member of Central Board of Direct Taxes, and the officer concerned for dealing with the income-tax matters in the Shah Commission.) in his recent article titled ‘Put in the dock by Shah Commission’ and published in The Hindu dated March 13, 2011. it is clear from Eradi’s article that Pranab Mukherjee is guilty of telling blatant lies in the Parliament. He is treating all the Members of Parliament as kindergarten children! I am giving below the full text of this article by V. U. Eradi.

Put in the dock by Shah Commission
V. U. Eradi


Pranab Mukherjee should specify in which case he was “put in the dock by the Shah Commission.” History and propriety demand an honest answer.

Replying to the debate on the general budget on Friday, March 9, Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee mentioned that the government was serious about the issue of bringing back “black money.” In the course of his reply, he is reported to have said that during the Emergency, he had, because of his deep concern in this regard, ordered raids on a “very important family” that he did not want to identify. He is reported to have added “it was not a fruitless raid. One tonne of primary gold with Swiss marks was discovered. Later on with the change of government, I was accused of causing Emergency excesses and was put in the dock before the Shah Commission.”

I DO NOT KNOW WHETHER THE TONNE OF GOLD WAS A FIGMENT OF THE FINANCE MINISTER’S FERTILE IMAGINATION, BUT THE ALLEGATION THAT HE WAS PUT ON THE DOCK BY THE SHAH COMMISSION IN ANY SUCH CASE WHERE MAJOR TAX EVASION WAS LATER ESTABLISHED BY DISCOVERY OF A TONNE OF GOLD, IS, TO PUT IT POLITELY, FACTUALLY INCORRECT. The Shah Commission dealt, inter alia, with Emergency excesses. Five of those cases related to the Income Tax department over which the present Finance Minister presided as Minister of State for Finance (Revenue).


It is necessary to mention that in spite of subsequent authoritarian measures to practically obliterate this valuable document, a few copies of the Shah Commission Report survived. The country owes a debt of gratitude to Era Sezhiyan, a great parliamentarian, for his efforts at publishing the report recently in the form of a book with an excellent introduction from him.

The five cases referred to are briefly mentioned below, with page, etc., references for those interested. The first two cases can be clubbed together. They were tax raids on two brave trade union leaders, Prabhat Kar and D.P. Chadha, general secretary and president, respectively of the All India Bank Employees Association (First Interim Report of the Commission, Chapter 7, Para 7.294 onwards at pp 93-94).

Significantly, action in this case was initiated by the then powerful Director, CBI, D. Sen. He sent for the tax official concerned, gave him the orders, which were meekly followed. The Director, CBI, later recorded a secret note which says that the two persons’ houses “were got searched” and added that a report regarding the search is enclosed. In his oral testimony, Sen said that the report was sent either to O.M. Mehta, the then reasonably notorious MOS in the Home Ministry, or to R.K. Dhavan. Neither Sen nor the above two dignitaries was in anyway lawfully concerned with the Tax law or its administration. As the then Minister in charge of Revenue, Pranab Mukherjee, cannot escape responsibility for this high handed and unlawful exercise of the drastic and draconian provisions of the tax law to suppress legitimate trade union activity.

Then comes the Baroda Rayon Corporation case (Second interim Report, Chapter 9, pages 10 to 15 para 9.1 to 9.27). It will be useful to mention at the outset that the alleged one tonne of gold was not discovered or seized in this case. In fact, this raid was very similar to the drama of raids, arrests and “grilling” of persons like Suresh Kalmadi, A. Raja and other near and dear ones by the CBI, the ED and other sundry agencies.

I said no gold was found, but something more precious was. But that material was not used to detect tax evasion. Three files containing the vital information V.K. Shah, the managing director of the company, so helpfully placed in his briefcase were “seized” from him and through the chain of command reached the present Finance Minister who quite legitimately forgot almost immediately what he did with them. It used to be said those days by persons close to the then important hangers-on that the party high command was keen on verifying details of large sums of money apparently handed over to a then charismatic party leader allegedly to persuade some legislators to act in a particular manner. V.K. Shah only requested that the papers be seized from him rather than he hand them over and thus betray his Guru.

The next tax raid case dealt with by the Shah Commission was the one on Bajaj and Mukund groups in May 1976. Here again, there was no discovery of the tonne of gold because no such claim was made during the proceedings before the Commission in justification of the action taken. What was submitted then on behalf of the Group was that this favour was bestowed on them because of their association with Jayaprakash Narayan and the Sarvodya movement. Besides, Viren Shah, Managing Director of Mukund Iron and Steel Works, who was a close associate of the Bajaj family, was a persona non grata at the Imperial Durbar.

To conclude, at least one benevolent act of the then Emergency Regime merits mention. In the course of a routine enquiry, it was noticed that the identity of two women who were registered as shareholders in Maruti Ltd, a Sanjay Gandhi venture, could not be verified as they did not live at the address furnished in the company’s records. The moment further enquiries were started, they came to an abrupt stop. The Director of Investigation recorded that the “Chairman has desired that no enquiries should be made regarding this case till further instructions from him.” A mere 35 years have elapsed. The instructions might well be on their way. Obviously, the investment in unverifiable names was of unaccounted money.


(V.U. Eradi, former member of Central Board of Direct Taxes, was the officer concerned dealing with the tax matters in the Shah Commission.)

I will be failing in my Public Duty if I do not offer my salutations to Shri VU Eradi for theunmatched National Service he has rendered today in making our poor and innocent countrymen fully aware of the ‘exemplary’ (?!), ‘impeccable’ (?!), ‘exalted’(?!), ‘unsullied’ (?!), ‘unshakable’ (?!) and ‘unquestionable’ (?!) conduct, character and antecedents of Pranab Mukherjee, the Union Finance Minister of India today!! Shri VU Eradi was an outstanding Public Servant of post-independent India noted for his qualities of outstanding leadership based on the canine virtues of courage, fidelity and vigilance. I would love to pay my humble tribute to a great Public servant like Shri VU Eradi in the words of a great poet:

How happy is he born and taught,
That serveth not another’s will;
Whose armour is his honest thought
And simple truth his utmost skill.


Sonia wants rubber stamp president: Swamy. Swamy meets Mulayam.

Thursday, June 7th 2012, 06:02 PM

Lucknow, June 7 — Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy Thursday accused Congress president Sonia Gandhi of wanting “a rubber stamp as the next president” and said A.P.J. Abdul Kalam was best suited for the job.

Charging Gandhi with blocking good names for presidency, Swamy said the country looked towards political parties to elect “an illustrious, honest and respectable man” to occupy the Rashtrapati Bhawan.

Swamy spoke after meeting Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav here in view of the presidential polls scheduled next month.

Addressing a press conference later, Swamy called for another term for Kalam, who was the president from 2002 to 2007.

He said Kalam was immensely respected by people of all age groups. “I think that Kalam is the most suited person to occupy Rashtrapati Bhawan.”

If all opposition parties unite and select one candidate, the ruling party’s candidate is sure to be defeated, he said.


Y S Vijayalakshmi steps up attack on Vishakanya

YSR Congress party honorary president Y S Vijayalakshmi has stepped up her attack on the Congress party with regard to her husband Y S Rajasekhara Reddy’s suspicious death, ostensibly to gain political mileage in the by-elections.

Vijayalakshmi on Wednsday raised a few more issues with regard to YSR’s chopper crash.

“There were supposed to be three maps showing the route from Hyderabad to Tirupati, but there was not even one route map in the ill-fated helicopter. Secondly, the bullets in the weapon of YSR’s gunman John Wesley were missing and one does not know what had happened to them. There are many other doubts on the chopper crash,” she said at a public meeting in Emmiganur in Kurnool district.

Vijayamma also recalled the “investigative report” carried by a Russian website on the people involved in the chopper crash.

“Ignoring these reports, the Congress leaders are slinging mud on my family on my husband’s death. Their allegations against us confirm that there was indeed a conspiracy in the chopper crash,” she said.

Jagan juggernaut: Will the cage hold?

Jagan Mohan Reddy has stormed across Andhra, changing the face of politics in this Congress bastion like no one before him these last three years. His arrest this week, slammed by the rebel’s own camp and the opposition at the centre is being seen as a bid by the Congress — and the TDP — to prevent Jagan’s YSR Congress from sweeping up the 19 seats up for grabs in next Sunday’s bypoll, and cut the earth from under him in the run up to 2014 when every seat will count. Ch. V.M. Krishna Rao and N. Vamsi Srinivas report on the long-term implications of his incarceration.

Even before his father’s body was retrieved from the dense hillside where the helicopter crashed in 2009, the ambitious son had set himself up as Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy’s successor and the next chief minister of resource-rich Andhra Pradesh. Except, the Congress wasn’t having any of that.

Today, the square-jawed Kadapa MP Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy who has steadily mined the mother lode of the ruling Congress, winkling one legislator and parliamentarian over to his side, is paying for his head-on confrontation with the Congress.

In the cross-hairs of the CBI, the business and media empire that he inherited from his father is being investigated for fraud and illegalities. This could see him unable to bankroll elections, and incarcerated for several years, or at the very least until 2014, when the UPA government goes back to the people. That’s when the chips will be down and the real bargaining will begin.

Will the brash Jagan, looking at the implosion of his business interests, make his peace with the Congress? Will he allow himself to be co-opted into the party a la actor turned politician Chiranjeevi? Or will his arrest be the catalyst for the re-alignment of political forces which will see the young bull cast around for new allies, perhaps even the BJP, as Chandrababu Naidu’s TDP gives tacit support to the prosecution of the inheritor of YSR’s mantle?

For those surprised at the sudden entrance of Jagan into Andhra’s caste-driven politics, look again at the so-called businessman who made his fortune in Karnataka — albeit with his father’s support — and the manner in which he stepped into the breach when his father died. No political novice this, but a hard-nosed politician, the dynast who learnt the ropes at the feet of the masters – his father and grandfather.

His political aspirations were never a secret. Even before the 2009 parliament election results were announced, Jagan, contesting the Kadapa Lok Sabha seat, signaled his intent by sharing the dais with his father and other ministers during an official district review meeting.

His ability to orchestrate protests, demonstrably evident — when charged with committing petty electoral offences, he organized a massive protest. Shouting the slogans were not party workers but employees of his Sakshi newspaper!

A graduate in business administration, his business and political acumen is in little doubt, with some seeing his father in his ability to make quick money and others saying his arrogance harks back to his grandfather, the feudal Raja Reddy, felled in factional violence.

On how his mind works, D.A. Somayajulu, former state financial adviser who worked with YSR on the free power scheme to agriculture has this to say: “Jagan has an ability to grasp things quickly and has tremendous energy. Like any new generation entrepreneur, he pursues his goals and has a modern approach in implementing things. It’s his to-the-point approach that is often mistaken for arrogance.”

Jagan won his entrepreneurial spurs in Bengaluru, building a multi-crore business empire with investments from individuals and business houses who, in turn, enjoyed the largesse of the YSR government. YSR’s death and Jagan’s unseemly haste to step into his father’s shoes by trying to muster the support of legislators may have been looked at askance by the Congress high command.

But as Prof. Haragopal, a rights activist and social sciences professor says, “Besides his own ambition, those who were reaping the financial benefits of the Congress’ corrupt governance may have lent him back-end support,” adding that these same forces will in all likelihood, sustain YSR Congress in the future.

In fact, Jagan’s refusal to back down from laying claim to the CM’s post was not motivated by the desire to be chief minister as much as the fear that his father’s rivals would “finish him off,” insiders said.

As has been well documented, in refusing to play ball with the high command, the party could not convene a Legislature Party meet and elect Rosaiah as chief minister.

The anti-YSR group in the Congress only stoked Delhi’s suspicions of his motives. “Jagan is criticised by the media for being overly ambitious. But why don’t people look into the evil designs of his rivals who went to the extent of sowing the seeds of the state’s division, hoping to contain him?” asks K. Ramakrishna, former minister and part of the YSR Congress think-tank.

Jagan’s state-wide “odarpu yatra” against the express wishes of the powers that be, was both the end and the beginning. The end of his links with the mother party, and the launch of his own YSR Congress party, under whose aegis, he stunned his political rivals by winning the Kadapa Lok Sabha with a five lakh plus margin and ensured the YSR Congress’ entry in the assembly with two Assembly seats.

If sources close to him are to be believed, his fledgling party is poised to repeat a similar feat in the majority of the 18 Assembly and one Lok Sabha seat in the June 12 bypoll.

Jagan’s candidates are pulling off victories despite rival parties spending huge amounts of money,” claims Mr Somayajulu. “This is contrary to the impression being created that Jagan runs his politics with money power.”

With the administration in a state of paralysis despite a change of chief ministers, Jagan has lost little opportunity in tom-tomming to the people that this was largely due to every one of his father’s welfare schemes being discontinued or pruned.

Making matters easier for Jagan, is the in-fighting in the Congress between new Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy and PCC president Botsa Satyanarayana which has seen governance put on hold.
With Telugu Desam chief Chandrababu Naidu failing to regain ground, unable to become the alternative or stand up to the Jagan wave, even the TD has not been able to cash in on the split in the
Congress vote,” admits a TD party MP.

But it’s in the YSR Congress chief’s clever blending of religion with politics that could be the major contributing factor for his party getting a foothold in the coastal region. From a born-again Christian family, Jagan openly flaunts his religious leanings.

The Congress, alive to the threat he poses and deeply uncomfortable with his growth is said to have used pressure tactics well before the High Court had even ordered the CBI inquiry into allegations of Jagan’s disproportionate assets with Central agencies like the income-tax department and the Enforcement Directorate digging into his business empire.

“The track record of the Congress is such that its arm-twisting methods against political rivals create an impression that the latter is being singled out and hounded,” CPM state secretary B.V. Raghavulu pointed out.

Not so surprisingly, the arrest has done little to dent his popularity with the weary electorate asking “who’s not corrupt?”. YSR Congressmen also believe that it will take years for the CBI probe to reach its logical conclusion given the complexity of the financial transactions. And since the probe is seen as a political tool to up the pressure on Jagan to co-operate, an electoral victory could even help make the probe go away. Clearly, the June 12 bypolls are a dummy run for the General Elections, an acid test for the Congress, Telugu Desam and YSR Congress in Coastal and Rayalaseema regions as well as for the Telanaga Rastriya Samiti in the Telangana region.

Before Jagan’s arrest, a slew of surveys and opinion polls published or broadcast in regional channels had predicted a minimum of 12 Assembly seats to YSR Congress and a keen fight between the party and Telugu Desam or the Congress and the rest. After Jagan’s arrest, experts say that a sympathy wave will bring the YSR Congress many more seats.

Jagan has already campaigned in all the constituencies over the last month. Since his arrest, his mother Y.S. Vijayalakshmi and sister Y.S. Sharmila Reddy have taken over the campaigning and are drawing huge crowds. This is primarily because the late YSR’s wife and daughter are seeking votes for the first time outside Pulivendula of Kadapa district. YSR Congress ‘s mobilization of people for the road shows, normal practice of the Congress and TD, has also been unprecedented.

If the results are one-sided, like YSR Congress getting 18/18, it may trigger political instability in the state forcing more TD and Congress MLAs to switch over to Jagan. Political stability or a status quo can only be ensured if the Congress and TD gets three to four seats each and the YSR Congress gets the rest, feel experts.

Jagan’s electoral success therefore could see the steady exodus of MLAs from the Congress to the YSR party turn from a trickle into a flood.

The YSR Congress is clearly hoping to position itself as a strong political force, as an alternative to both the Congress and Telugu Desam for the 2014 polls. If that is, Jagan bags 10-15 MPs in the next Lok Sabha polls. In this era of coalition politics, even less is more.

D-day: June 12

The upcoming bypolls to the 18 Assembly segments and the Nellore Lok Sabha seat in Andhra Pradesh on June 12 will decide the political fate of the YSR Congress.

For YSRC party’s chief, incarcerated Kadapa MP Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, it is a major prestige issue and will determine his political agenda till parliamentary polls in 2014.

Target Jagan

Both ruling Congress and Opposition Telugu Desam are targeting Jagan Mohan.

Both parties feeling the political heat thanks to desertions to the fledgling YSR Congress.

All speeches centred on Jagan’s “corruption”.

Vote plank

YSR Congress promising electorate a return to YSR’s Swarna Rajyam (golden rule), appealing to the masses to teach a lesson to both the Congress and the TD for colluding with each other to tarnish the image of YSR.

Poll impact

The results of the bypolls on June 15 could change the unstable political scenario of the state.

This is the seventh bypoll in AP since YSR’s death in September 2009, neither the Congress nor the TD have won a single seat since then.

The upcoming byelections are spread over 12 of the 23 districts in AP

Covers an electorate of 44 lakh of the total 5.3 crore.

Interfaith dialogues and Inculturation: The Pune Dialogue

09 Dec 2011 

On 7 November 2011, the Indore edition of DNA newspaper carried a news item titled, “Vatican Cardinal, Swamis to join hands at meet”. The report said that Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, president, Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue from the Vatican, would lead a 30-member Catholic delegation for dialogue with a 30-member Hindu team led by Swami Shrikantananda, Head of the Ramakrishna Mission, at the Jnana Deepa Vidyapeeth, Pune, from Nov. 6 – 9. The theme of the four-day Hindu-Christian meet was: ‘Enhancing Hindu-Christian relations and collaboration for justice, peace and harmony’. (1)

The Cardinal’s visit was well planned, with an itinerary covering senior Hindu, Sikh and Jain religious leaders. Yet despite arrangements being made well in advance, the Hindu Samaj in general, including major organizations like RSS and VHP and many traditional Mathams and Peethams, was not aware of it. As the four-day meet concluded, “Vatican Insider” dated Nov. 10 reported:

–       Before the assembly, composed of forty Catholic leaders and some thirty Hindu leaders, Cardinal Tauran said that religions are instruments of peace and unity, but was sorry to see that some groups still use violence in the name of religion, thereby creating mistrust between the communities: “It is urgent that we turn our backs on hatred,” said the Cardinal. These words are particularly important in the context of inter-religious tensions that exist in some parts of India, as reported by Eglises d’Asie, agency for Foreign Missions in Paris.

–       Attacks against Christian communities have in fact resumed in Karnataka, a state South of India regularly plagued by waves of collective violence. On 3 November in Kankanady, the Catholic Church of Saint Alphonsa, of Syro-Malabar rite, was desecrated in the night by a group of young Hindus who wore saffron-colored bracelets. One of them was a guest of the student college located in the vicinity. (2)

The Mangalore incident quoted in the above report is a white lie. While it is true the said Church was stoned, the police and media reports clearly establish that a man was arrested on the spot for the crime, in an inebriated condition. The story of stoning by a gang of Hindu youth wearing saffron bracelets etc was concocted. (3)

This is how the Church makes use of events like Interfaith Dialogue! There seems to be no report from the Hindu side about what exactly had happened at the four-day meet; who accompanied Swami Srikantananda; the various websites of RK Mission seem to be silent.

The Amritsar Dialogue

Cardinal Tauran had a two-day meet with Sikh leaders at Amritsar, Nov. 11 & 12, on “Enhancing Sikh-Christian Dialogue for World Peace”. He visited the Golden Temple and was presented with a replica of the Golden Temple by the Chief of the Akal Takht. Here, the Cardinal is reported to have said, “The purpose of organising this Conference was to bring attitudinal changes in the human being, so that they can relish the positive points of all religions and see the message of God in unison”.

Selling the usual stuff of universal brotherhood, he said, “we all are sons of God and we must learn to accept the individualities of every religion and every religion gives the message of universal brotherhood and peaceful co-existence and these conferences would reduce the mutual trust deficit between different religions.”(4)

The Delhi Meet

At New Delhi, he then met with the Jain community and spoke of the “need” for the joining together of Christian and Jain communities. He said, “Christians and Jains have many things in common. As Christians, we believe that life is very precious and the Jain religion too upholds the sanctity of life and urges its promotion and protection. Our vocation to promote respect for life, non-violence, peace and harmony in today’s world brings us together with the common bond of mutual affection for each other.”

Sadhvi Sadhna ji said, “A person has to believe in his/her religious scriptures as no religion teaches hatred or non-violence. We have to shun violence, ego, hatred from within ourselves, only then we will be able to bring a change in the world. The world will not have to conduct such conferences to promote peace and harmony if we bring a change in ourselves.”

The Christian side was well-prepared, marking specific areas like protection, preservation and promotion of life, work for betterment of ecology and environment, and preparing religious texts on major themes like family, social life, diversity and equality, etc., for “joint work” with the Jains. The seminar was organized by the Pontifical Council for Inter-Religious Dialogue, Archdiocese of Delhi, Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India and World Fellowship of Religions. (5)

It is an irony that the world’s worst persecutors talk of non-violence, peace and respect for life to the most non-violent and peaceful religion! While the Hindu contingent was sold “Freedom of Religion”, Sikhs were served “Universal Brotherhood” and Jains got “Protection, Preservation & Promotion of life”.

Had the Vatican Cardinal been sincere in his mission, he should have continued his dialogue with Kanchi Sankaracharya whom he met in June 2009 in Mumbai. Realizing he would face inconvenient questions – on the issue of conversions – he took simply engaged with a different set of sanyasis.

The Assisi Prayer

The Pune-Amritsar-Delhi are significant in that they happened within days of the “Prayers for Peace” Meet organized by the Vatican and led by Pope Benedict XVI in Assisi on 27 Oct, where, Catholic Free Press reports, 300 delegates from various religions and countries participated. Here again, Hindu society at large was kept in the dark and the person(s) who participated as “representatives” of Hindus have not identified themselves so far. The internet has revealed that Acharya Shri Shrivatsa Goswami from Sri Radharamana Temple, Vrindavan, attended as a “representative of India”, and Shri Rajmohan Gandhi was present (he attended a similar meeting in Assisi in 1986, convened by Pope John Paul II). Three other “representatives” are believed to have participated, but their names are still not known.

While the Pope and others spoke of environment, terrorism, rich-poor divide, etc., Acharya Shrivatsav Goswami spoke about “inward journey”, without a murmur about the atrocities being perpetrated by the Church in India. The Pope conveniently avoided topics like conversion, which is also a form of terrorism. Unsurprisingly, the Indian “representatives” also avoided conversions. (6)

The Diwali Gift

After the Assisi prayer meet, the Vatican sent “Deepavali Greetings” to Hindus, audaciously proposing “religious freedom” as the answer to religiously-motivated conflicts:

“Religious freedom is a fundamental human right. When it is jeopardized or denied, all other human rights are endangered. Religious freedom necessarily includes immunity from coercion by any individual, group, community or institution. The human freedom to profess, practice and propagate religion or belief can take place in public or private, alone or in a community. The right to religious freedom also involves a “serious obligation” from civil authorities, individuals and groups to respect the freedom of others. It also includes the freedom to change one’s own religion. Respect for religious freedom allows believers to be “more enthusiastic” about cooperating with their fellow citizens to build “a just and human social order.” Its denial stifles and frustrates “authentic and lasting peace.

We cordially wish you a joyful celebration of Deepavali.” (7)

The Catholic News Agency pontificated: “The message comes after several years of tensions and anti-Christian violence in some parts of India. Hindu radicals have participated in deadly attacks that have driven Christians out of their homes and destroyed their churches.”

After sending this insult in the name of greetings, Cardinal Tauran had the temerity to visit India to dialogue with selected Hindu leaders, who did not have the wits to question the Vatican Padires about the threat they pose to Hindu dharma on this bhumi.

Farce and futility

The far of Interfaith Dialogue has been going on for some time, always convened by the Church, and joined in a shoddy manner by Hindus. The Church has clear political objectives – to weaken the spiritual strength of Hindu India. Hence, it cleverly separated Religion from Politics and slowly captured the political establishment in the name of secularism. As “western secularism” got well entrenched in the polity of Hindu India, the nation’s ethos was removed from governance, leading to westernization of education and other important sectors like art and culture.

This led to a spurt in separatism, fanned by the Church, by Maoists, LTTE and other anti-national organizations and NGOs. And another western concept called “Human Rights” entered the polity, furthering the growth of separatism and disunity.

Despite having control over the political establishment, the Church feared Hindu Religious Institutions and their strengths. So it created conflicts between castes and divisions between sampradayas, along with inculturation techniques. To sustain both, it kept religious leaders engaged via interfaith dialogues.

Our religious leaders fell into the trap. Instead of talking to the various caste leaders and reaching out to the oppressed and discriminated communities and united them, they moved away from them and started having dialogues with other religionists, particularly Christian Padires. As the distance between the common man and Hindu religious leaders increased, the Church entered the scene and wreaked havoc.

Besides money and allurement, inculturation is the most potent weapon with the Church to convert masses. Inculturation is the copying of Hindu traditional practices like wearing saffron robes, rudraksha and tulsi malas, pilgrimage by padayatra, chanting ashtotra and sahasranama archana for Jesus, composing songs on Jesus and Mary on the tune of our devotional hymns, calling Mary as Maari (Mariamman), planting crosses and constructing prayer houses and churches (unauthorized) on hills and creating a ‘girivalam’ path around them and so on.

This writer had personally heard some of our religious leaders welcoming this danger, thinking that the Christians are now following our culture and method of worship! Naturally, in the recent interfaith dialogues, Hindu leaders did not speak of this insidious concept of inculturation, or the flow of foreign funds and construction of Churches out of proportion to population.

The clear talk

Confident of its approach, in 2009 the Vatican engaged Hindu traditional mathams and organized a dialogue with Kanchi Sankaracharya in Mumbai. The group included Sri Sri Ravisankar, Swami Vageeshananda (Ramakrishna Mission), Dadi Janakiji (Prajapati Brahma Kumaris), Swami Nirmalananda Nath (Karnataka), and Swami Chidananda Saraswati (Divine Life Society, Uttaranchal). Cardinal Jean-Louis Pierre Tauran was accompanied by the Pontifical Council for Interfaith Dialogue,  Cardinal Oswald Gracias of “Indian Bible” fame, Vatican envoy to India Pedro Lopez Quintana, Archbishop Felix Machado of Nashik, Bishop Thomas Dabre of Pune, and Bishop Raphy Manjaly of Varanasi.

He floored the Vatican team with his explicit assertions that:

–       Pope Benedict XVI visited Jerusalem and gave Jewish religious leaders an undertaking to “desist from all missionary and conversion activities” among the Jews. Swami Jayendra Saraswati demanded a similar pact with the Hindu community in India.

–       Regarding Pope John Paul II’s call for planting the Cross in Asia to cause the Second Coming of Jesus, Swami ji demanded that Vatican explain the rationale for the First Coming of Jesus Christ when there was no Christianity or Church to undertake the mission of christianising the world.

–       Kanchi Acharya strongly condemned the [then] proposed visit of the USCIRF and said Hindus would not permit such interference in the internal affairs of India.

–       He demanded the setting up of a common pool to collect all foreign funds received by the Church and their equal distribution amongst all social welfare organisations, irrespective of religious affiliation. He urged all Hindu organisations to work together to eradicate the menace of conversion.

–       He called for an immediate end to all devious ‘inculturation’ methods being adopted by various Christian denominations and the canard of preaching that conversion to Christianity would cure all diseases, which is violative of the DRUGS AND MAGIC REMEDIES ACT, 1954.

–       He endorsed the proposed anti-conversion law in Sri Lanka, mooted by the Joint Council of Buddhist Organisations.

–       Emphasising Sanatana Dharma, he said the soul of India is religious and spiritual, and urged the government to declare India a “Spiritual” and not a “Secular” country, as secularism is an administrative quality and cannot be the soul of the nation.

–       Kanchi Acharya condemned the usurping of Hindu scriptures for incorporating them in the so-called ‘Indian Bible’ and demanded immediate withdrawal of copies of the book, if necessary by the government.

The Acharya underscored the importance of faithful adherence to points agreed at the meeting; else failure would result in the futility of such meetings. No wonder Cardinal Jean-Louis Pierre Tauran dodged the Kanchi Acharya this time! (8)

Institutions of Inculturation

The Pune venue amply proves that Interfaith dialogue and Inculturation are a twin-strategy of the Church. While “Jnana-Deepa Vidyapeeth” sounds like a Hindu institution, it is actually a Christian body blatantly indulging in Inculturation. Attempting to give a Hindu colour to its emblem through the Kathopanishad, saying that the tree in the emblem denotes asvatha and the meditating figure is seeking Brahma-vidya; the game becomes clear when it says that, all the components of the emblem merge at the summit in the Cross of Christ which, as the linchpin of time and eternity, interlocks the human and the divine. (9)

Its mission is to mediate the vision of Jesus for India. For this, it will “promote dialogue among religions, cultures, communities and secular movements, all of which will be facilitated by a positive thrust towards inculturation…” (10)

Other institutions concentrating on Inculturation include “Shantivanam”, founded in 1950 by two French Priests Fr. Jules Monchanin, a diocesan missionary and Fr. Henry le Saux (Abhishiktananda) from the Abbey of Kergonam. They named it Saccidananda Ashram, equating “Sath-Sith-Ananda” with the “Holy Trinity”.

Later Fr. Bede Griffiths, who came to India in 1955, took charge of Shantivanam in 1968 on the invitation of Fr. Henry le Saux, after short stints at Bangalore and Kurisumala in Kerala, where he took the name Dhyananda and adopted saffron robes.

The Saccidananda Ashram inside Shantivanam has a temple built like a Hindu temple but with idols of various Christian saints and a “Cosmic Cross”. The Ashram spends much time and money for “Academic Research” on Inter religious understandings and meeting points, encounters of Christianity and Hinduism, Christian Vedanta, etc. Jesuit Priests from the West regularly land here to establish Christianity.  (11)

Another institution has been established exclusively for fine arts – Kalai Kaviri College of Fine Arts, Trichy. It is nationally accredited with Grade A by NAAC (National Assessment and Accreditation Council) and recognized by the Government of Tamil Nadu; it has tasted success in christianising the divine Hindu art of Bharat Natyam. It also focuses on vina, mridangam, and  violin; all classical music and dance are taught on Bible themes. (12)

Thiruvannamalai based Swami Devananda Saraswati ji has exposed the Atma Jyoti Ashram which has infiltrated into Sri Ramana Ashram in Thiruvannamalai. The Atma Jyoti Ashram operates from Mexico and is well connected with Shantivanam, Trichy. The padres from both bodies masquerade as Hindu Sanyasis and visit Ramana Ashram where some members of the Ashram’s management seem to be hand in glove with them. (13)

The “International Sanatana Dharma Society” run by one Frank Morales masquerading as “Sri Dharma Pravartaka Acharya” targets US-born and bred Hindu youths who are distanced from their native culture by two to three generations. His seeks to establish Jesus as “Dharma Master” through the Hindu scriptures, like the local fraudsters like Sadhu Chellappa and Vedanayagam Sastri. (14)

The Yoga Marketers

Then we have some Indian cults that do not want to identify themselves as “Hindu”. Corporate yoga teachers who lead these cults, dress up like “Jesus” to sell their yoga globally. The precedent was set by Paramahamsa Yogananda who set up his Yogada Satsang Society’s International Headquarters in Mt. Washington in 1925. He may be the first Indian Hindu yogi who legitimised the legend of Jesus and gave the Christian god a permanent place in the pantheon of Hindu Gods, next to Krishna. Now his Yogatha Satsang Society is almost christianised. (15)

An American ballet dancer called Shivaya Subramanian Swami who met Shivagnani and Siddhar Jnanaguru Siva Yoga Swami in Jaffna in the 1950s, exposed the claims made by Paramahamsa Yogananda in his book “Autobiography of a Yogi”.  (16)

Hindu yoga is marketed by Corporate Gurus who identify themselves as secular or spiritual, but not Hindu. The disciples are foreigners with huge money; ashrams are worldwide; and after endless globetrotting they end up selling Jesus in India and help inculturation leading to the christianisation of Yoga.

Tamil Chauvinists and their Tamil Saivism

Sadly, some traditional Saiva Mutts in Tamil Nadu are opposed to the Vedas and Sanskrit and fall prey to the Church’s Tamil card. They are so chauvinistic, they fail to realize the damage they are causing to their own philosophy. World Saiva Council headquartered at London organizes World Saiva Conferences with the sole aim of promoting Tamil Kumbabishekams, Tamil Marriages, Tamil worship in temples, all sans Vedic hymns and Sanskrit Mantras. They also peddle something called “Tamil Agama”. (17).

Some sectarian and racist Tamil outfits subscribe to Shaiva Siddhanta and pretend it has nothing to do with Vedic Hinduism. These people have been wittingly or unwittingly christianized by the early missionaries who tried to identify Shaiva Siddhanta with Christianity and separate the Tamils from the greater Hindu family. Some chauvinistic saivite heads brazenly flirt with anti-Hindu forces such as atheistic Dravidian parties and Christian inculturation institutes. (18)

Church’s Missionary Agenda

From the day the Portuguese, French, Dutch, German and British missionaries landed on our soil, they have been working to convert the nation. “Roman Brahmin” Robert-de-Nobili, “Italian Munivar” Constantine Joseph Beschi, “German Iyer” Barthalomaus Ziegenbalg, “Italian Iyer” G.U. Pope, “Racist” Caldwell and other rapscallion padires from the 16th century to the contemporary reverend Francis Clooney, have all been working with the same objective. (19)

Late Sitaram Goel, in “Catholic Ashrams: Sanyasins or Swindlers?” explained the church agenda: “Christianity has to drop its alien attire and get clothed in Hindu cultural forms. Christianity has to be presented as an indigenous faith. Christian theology has to be conveyed through categories of Hindu philosophy; Christian worship has to be conducted in the manner and with the materials of Hindu puja. Christian sacraments have to sound like Hindu samskaras; Christian churches have to copy the architecture of Hindu temples; Christian hymns have to be set to Hindu music; Christian themes and personalities have to be presented in styles of Hindu painting; Christian missionaries have to dress and live like Hindu sannyasins; Christian mission stations have to look like Hindu ashramas. And so on, the literature of Indigenization goes into all aspects of Christian thought, organization and activity and tries to discover how far and in what way they can be disguised in Hindu forms.”

The Jesuit “Jackals”
Even two decades after Sitaram Goel wrote this warning, we have learnt nothing, and our own people support dubious characters like Francis Clooney of “The Society of Jesus”, a Roman Catholic Religious Order founded in 1540 by Saint Ignatius of Loyola (1491-1556). This society is notorious for its evangelical works in the guise of charitable, educational and social services; its members are bound by the Vows of Apostolic Order. Saint Francis Xavier (1506-1552) was the first Jesuit to work in India facilitating the “Inquisition of Goa”.  (20)

Pope Clement XIV (1705–1774) abolished the Jesuit order in 1773; but it was reconstituted in 1814 by Pope Pius VII. They are well established in India with hundreds of schools, colleges and other educational institutes.

A section follows the “Inculturation” of Robert-De-Nobili, experimenting with a Hinduised version of the Mass that incorporates Hindu serving dishes, Hindu music, language, and postures of prayer. They adopt the life-styles and manner of Hindu sanyasis while working as Roman Catholic priests. Two such Jesuits were Swami Amalananda and Swami Animananda, who worked in remote, poor villages in the state of Mysore. (21)

The Clooney Story

Francis Clooney, a Jesuit Padire and Professor at Harvard Divinity School, easily deceived some self-centered Vaishnavites in Tamil Nadu with his “studies” on “Comparative Theology”. For over two decades he has made regular visits to India, especially Tamil Nadu: “I work in certain traditions of classical Hinduism, including Mimamsa Vedanta and Srivaishnavism. Of course, my work as a professor leads me to write on other topics and themes at times, but these are my areas of focus in the study of Hinduism. Beyond these, I am also a comparative theologian, and so, I reflect on what I learn from Indian traditions alongside my understanding of my Christian bearings. And, to understand comparative study, I am also a bit of a historian, studying how Western Jesuits over the centuries have understood Hinduism.” (22)

Declaring Srivaishnavism to be parallel to Roman Catholicism, with similar depth, breadth, and wholeness, he adds, “I have several book projects in mind, including more work on the Srivaishnava Bhagavatha Visaya, certain songs and commentaries compared with medieval Christian commentary on the Biblical Song of Songs. I have also been doing research on the Jesuit tradition of inter-religious learning in India, and may soon have something more to write on that.” Wikipedia says his current projects include an introductory volume on comparative theology, and a study of yoga and Jesuit spirituality (whatever that means). (23)

During annual sojourns in Chennai, he makes it a point to address Hindus either in a College or a University organized by Vaisnavites who aid and abet him with all details, information and relevant references. They feel no shame or guilt when he compares and equates “Sri” (Goddess Lakshmi) with “Mary”, or Maariamman with Mary, or Francis De Seles with Sri Vedanta Desika. Clooney’s deliberately misinterprets Indian religious texts and “invents” similarities between “Hindu Theology” and Christian Theology.

Barring half a dozen individual Hindu nationalists in Chennai, no organization feels the necessity to scuttle this devious strategy. Blogger-historian Vedaprakash closely followed Clooney and his activities and exposed him by carefully documenting his mischief. (24)

Interfaith dialogues and Inculturation: The real face of the Church

10 Dec 2011

The Church itself provides ample evidence of its true face as one of the most barbarous persecutors in the world. Everywhere that it invaded, it persecuted the natives and destroyed their culture, converted them and christianised the entire land. Christian Clergy world over has an ugly track record of child abuse, sodomy, rape, and what not. Their sex crimes date back officially to Didache [2nd century AD] which instructs, “Thou shalt not seduce young boys!” (1)

A few snapshots are in order:

–       January 2002 – Roman Catholic priest JohnGeoghan was defrocked after he was found guilty of indecent assault and battery

–       29 April 2002 – Cardinal Law of Bostonadmitted he allowed a pedophile priest to continue serving within the church

–       2 May 2002 – Retired Catholic priest Paul Shanley arrested for child rape

–       25 May 2002 – Milwaukee Archbishop Rembert Weakland resigned after acknowledging that his archdiocese paid $450,000 to settle a claim of sexual assault against him

–       2005 – US Diocese spent $467 million on legal settlement with sex abuse victims

–       28 July 2006 – Simon Thomas, paedophile church minister in Britain, jailed for life

One website provides information of Clergy Abuse over the years, another maintains a database of accused priests. The shocking details they document are damning proof of the stink surrounding the Church and Christianity. Even Popes John Paul and Benedict XVI played a role in covering up the clergy’s misdeeds. (2)

Pope John Paul II protected Cardinal Hans Hermann Groer who abused an estimated 2,000 boys for decades with impunity. He failed to encourage bishops to report accusations of paedophilia by priests to the police; ignored accusations against senior members of the clergy, at times promoting them to higher office; allowed priests accused of paedophilia to be transferred to a new diocese without anyone being warned of their record. He also decreed “pontifical secrecy” must apply to cases of sexual abuse in church trials. (3) The incumbent Pope is also accused of inaction and cover-up when he was archbishop of Munich or as the Vatican’s chief doctrinal enforcer. (4)

Papal apologies

As the sordid history of child sex abuse was exposed across the world, the Pope was forced to tender apologies everywhere he went. But Papal arrogance and contempt for victims was visible when he equated their sufferings with the “sufferings” of Jesus. On 21 March 2010, apologizing at a Sunday Mass at Ireland, Pope Benedict XVI said, “It is understandable that you find it hard to forgive or be reconciled with the Church. In her name, I openly express the shame and remorse that we all feel. I appeal to you to find hope and healing in knowing that Jesus was also a victim of sin and close to you in their suffering.” (5)

Though he admonished the priests of Ireland’s Catholic Church for their sins, the government of Ireland was not convinced and broke off diplomatic relations with the Vatican. The Prime Minister of Ireland complained, “Rome is stonewalling, if not obstructing, official enquiries into the abuse which went on as late as 2009. The Church is guilty of dysfunction, disconnection, elitism and narcissism.” (6)

On 18 Sept. 2010, amidst huge protests in London, the Pope apologized at a solemn Catholic service in Westminster Cathedral. But his leadership itself was questioned by the representative of the victims. In response to this latest papal denunciation of abuse, Peter Isely of Milwaukee of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests said: “Why, if the pope feels so much remorse, won’t he take action? As Pope, he’s removed two paedophile priests and demoted no corrupt bishops. He’s disclosed not one document about the cover up. He’s backed not one secular law that better safeguards kids. He’s not defrocked a single bishop who secretly moved known predators. Showing remorse isn’t leadership. Taking decisive action is leadership.” (7)

Again on 19 July 2011, faced with continuing sexual abuse scandals across Europe and the United States, Pope tendered another apology to “all those beautiful precious little children” who suffered at the hands of paedophiles in the Catholic Church. Yet even while tendering the apology, the Pope kept “smiling” and said, “We must never allow this to happen again,” he continued, “no matter how enchanting we find their playful little smiles.”

Enraged by his “smiling” arrogance, the victims said, “We felt a bit freaked out by the way the Pope kept smiling at us. Words are not enough; we need the Church to act so that child abusers are punished.” (8)

The anniversary of an apology

Three years ago, the Canadian government apologized to the survivors of “Indian Residential Schools” for the “death & abuse” caused by the Catholic, United and Anglican Church authorities since the early 19th century. Troy Media reported, “From 1831 to 1996, more than 150,000 First Nations, Inuit and Metis children were taken from their communities and sent to one of the 130 federally-funded boarding schools administered by Catholic, United and Anglican Church authorities. The record of death and abuse in these schools is well documented. As early as 1909 Dr. Peter Bryce reported that mortality rates at residential schools in Western Canada ranged from 30 to 60 per cent. Over time, more than 12,000 individual allegations of physical and sexual abuse were brought to Canada’s courts.”

Survivors of these residential schools lament most the loss of language, cultural traditions and the spirituality that was once the life blood of their communities. Despite the government’s attempt at reconciliation, non-aboriginals maintain a racist attitude. (9)

Catholic act of Stealing Babies

Last month, the BBC produced a damning documentary titled, “Spain’s stolen Babies” exposing the ugly (50-year) scandal of “baby-trafficking” by the Catholic Church in Spain. Investigations show that up to 300,000 Spanish babies were stolen from their parents and sold for adoption over a period of five decades, and that the children were trafficked by a secret network of doctors, nurses, priests and nuns in a widespread practice that began during General Franco’s dictatorship and continued until the early 1990s.

The mothers were told their babies were stillborn or died soon after birth, and that they could not see the body of the infants. They were not even allowed to attend the “funeral”. In reality, the babies were sold to those faithful to the Church. Documents were forged to include the adopted parents’ names. (10)

The “Xian Tradition” in India

The Church in India is no way better. Despite connivance of “secular” governments run by “secular” political parties and attempts by “secular” media to hide the ugly stories from public eye, several cases come out in the open and expose the culpability of the padires and nuns.

The Church operates through well-networked groups of NGOs and so-called “Children Homes” and “Adoption Agencies”. The individual traffickers associated with these NGOs masquerade as evangelists and missionaries. Citing a few cases may be in order.

In January 2010, 76 abused and malnourished children from Manipur (54 kids) and Assam (22 kids) were rescued from Bethedsa Blessing Home in Kanyakumari, run by Pastor Shaji. At the same time, 16 more children from Manipur were rescued from Reach Home Children Foundation in Mogappair, Chennai. They were found to be terribly abused and malnourished with severe attack of scabies. (11)

The traffickers promise the poor parents in insurgency-hit areas that they would give their children the best education with food and a good environment, in Tamil Nadu. The Times of India, 26 January 2010, reported: “While 1,096 children’s homes, housing 3.5 lakh children, are registered in the state, almost an equal number operate without registration, evading government scrutiny. The children aged six to 15 are kept in pathetic conditions and are often made to do jobs like carpentry, cooking and laundry. There have even been cases of children dying under suspicious circumstances and some being molested and abused.”

Incidentally, a majority of homes charged with trafficking are run by missionaries or evangelical societies. The present case is only the tip of a vast network, which receives crores of rupees from churches and agencies abroad by showing a large number of children under their “care”. (12)

A former nun, Florence Mary, who wanted to pursue her studies (MA Music) in 2006, was repeatedly raped by a Jesuit Priest Fr. R. Rajarathinam, the Principal of St. Joseph’s College in Thiruchy, Tamil Nadu,). He allegedly gave the lady a cool-drink laced with drugs and raped her and threatened her with dire consequences if she revealed it. Taking advantage of her fear, he abused her repeatedly and forced her to undergo abortion when she became pregnant in 2008. Three other padires, Fr. Devadoss, Fr. Xavier Francis and Fr. Xavier, were also accused of conniving with Fr. Rajarathinam to silence Florence Mary. The latter got acquainted with Mary during his frequent visits to Kalai Kaviri College of Fine Arts, where she was studying MA Music. Though he obtained bail from the High Court, the Supreme Court admitted Mary’s petition and directed him to reply within four weeks why his bail should not be cancelled. (13)

In September 2011, 33 children including 10 girls in the age group of 10 to 18 years, were rescued from an orphanage named the Grail Trust, patronized by a British national, Jonathan Robinson. Investigations revealed that Jonathan Robinson is a paedophile who made frequent visits to the home and sexually abused many children. British paedophile Duncan Grant, convicted by the Supreme Court along with another British paedophile Alan John Waters in March 2011 for 6 years for sexually abusing boys in an orphanage in Mumbai, is also believed to have visited this Grail Trust. (14)

The same month, 42 girl children including 23 from Nepal, were rescued from Michael Job Orphanage in Sulur near Coimbatore. Though the orphanage had a valid licence, it simply admitted the girls without checking the veracity of the claims made by the “social welfare organizations” which brought the “orphaned” girls. (15) The orphanage, in its website, claims that the girls were daughters of martyred and persecuted Christians. The truth is that this is actually a huge evangelical institution running a Matriculation Higher Secondary School, Arts & Science College and a B. Ed College, blatantly indulging in conversions also. The Founder Chairman P.P. Job is a self styled evangelist indulging in illegal conversion activities. (16)

In November 2006, a Hindu girl, Sukanya, studying in the 12th standard in Fathima Higher Secondary School in Omalur, near Salem, was found floating dead in the school’s well. The school claimed she committed suicide on scoring low marks. But a few more girls before Sukanya had committed suicide in the same school, which came to light after Sukanya’s death. Initially the police accepted the school’s story, but public pressure resulted in CB CID investigation. The State Minority Commission submitted a report to the then DMK government attesting to the version of the school authorities. But during the investigation, 8 suspects including a friend of a priest-teacher were identified as accused. Liquor bottles, used and unused condoms and broken pieces of bangles were found in the school. In November 2010 their DNA samples were sent for clinical analysis to find out if they matched with the spermatozoa taken from the vaginal swab of the girl in 2006. Even after one year, the result is yet to come! (17)

In September 2011, Ms. Lasi Bosco, Principal of AKT Matriculation School in Kallakurichi, near Villupuram, was arrested along with another teacher, Ms. Boshiya, for sexually abusing a four year old girl child. (18)

In July 2010, one Justine running Arumai Packiam Manuel Orphanage was arrested for indulging in homosexuality and voyeurism while orphanage girls were bathing, besides involving those kids in begging. His orphanage in Kanyakumari was raided by officers from the Child Welfare Committee and Social Welfare Department, and 18 girls and 14 boys rescued. (19)

Such ugly episodes of the Catholic way of living are aplenty in India, a la Europe and America.

Just two years ago, Dr. Sister Jesme Raphel shocked the Catholic Church by exposing all the ugly sexual abuses perpetrated on her by the clergy through her explosive book “Amen”. Close on her heels, ex-Vincentian Catholic Priest K.P. Shibu came out with his own experiences of homosexuality at seminaries, sexual misconducts of clergy, ugly approach of superiors and looting of money in his book “Here is the heart of a Priest.” It was an elaborate account of his 24 years in the Catholic Vincentian congregation.

His remarks about Jana Deepa Vidyapeeth are important and revealing in the sense that this was where the recent Hindu-Christian Dialogue took place. K.P. Shibu says he was sexually abused by senior seminarians in JDV, “Homosexual relations were rampant in seminaries. The victims had to suffer silently. If they complain…, both the accused and the victim would be shown the door. Hence, succumbing to the urges of the seniors was the only option…”

“During pastoral work, the seminarians used to travel on cycles. While moving around on a cycle, seminarians made a point to give lift to children. They (children) would be asked to tightly embrace the riding seminarian. Such acts were done with deliberate sexual intention,” he alleges
in the book. “There had been incidents of senior seminarians pretending as priests and hearing confessions.” (20)

Giving away children in adoption illegally is yet another Xian tradition followed religiously in India. Some NGOs indulge in illegal adoption rackets by giving children in adoption to foreigners quite often. Most cases deliberately escape the attention of the authorities.

A famous NGO, Guild of Service, was caught on the wrong foot by the Tamil Nadu Social Welfare Department in November 2011. Between 2006 and 2010, this high profile NGO gave 202 children in adoption, including 54 to foreign countries, violating all rules, after receiving huge money as donation. The mandatory NOC was not obtained from the Central Adoption Resource Agency (CARA), the authorized apex body. Founded by a group of British women in Chennai in 1923, it came under the control of a high profile lady, Mary Clubwallah Jadhav. It has many branches across the country and claims to serve for empowerment of marginalized women and children. (21)

Its Delhi unit has some very high profile women on its board with connections with high-placed government personalities. Though the Delhi and Chennai units have different URLs for their websites ( and, they have the same Emblem (Logo). The high profile Delhi unit cannot wash its hands off its Chennai unit, especially on the issue of the adoption racket which has come to light.

What is disgusting is the fact that while 4000 childless couples are waiting in Tamil Nadu for months in queue to get a child in adoption, this NGO had sold children abroad after collecting huge sums/donations. It is alleged that such NGOs have connections with many hospitals, which reminds us of the Spanish racket exposed by BBC. (22)

Even while writing this column, Sri Lankan media reported that a Matron (Sr. Mary Eliza), from Mother Teresa’s Missionary Sisters of Charity Home, Prem Nivasa, in Moratuwa, was arrested for alleged sale of children. (23) So much for the Catholic way of serving the children cause!

The flow of money

Trafficking and sexual abuse of children, kidnapping, rape, sexual misconduct of padires and nuns, looting of money, and the ever profitable business of conversions, have become the norm today. Despite all these shameless shenanigans, Churches in India get huge money from Western countries. Thousands of dollars flow into the coffers of thousands of NGOs and phony organizations to achieve the Church’s twin-objective of destroying the great cultural heritage of India and christianizing it.

Financial Expert and columnist, Prof. R. Vaidyanathan who has closely observed the money-spinning world of foreign-funded NGOs, says:

“I have tried unsuccessfully to get the annual reports including annual accounts from the website of the top 25 recipients (NGOs), many of whom are often mentioned or quoted in newspapers and TV channels and stress the importance of “transparency” in the functioning of the government. Many do not have any information in their websites. Some of their websites contain all razzmatazz but nothing on finances…

Given the declaration by various Evangelical groups in the USA and Europe that Asia is the next major place to “harvest souls” and “plant the churches” India should exercise caution in allowing foreign funding of these groups. They affect social harmony and foment communal disturbances by their conversion activities in small towns and tribal India. (24)

Financial expert and researcher Sanjiv Nayyar says that leading donor countries [US, Germany, UK, Italy etc] have between 2002-03 and 2008-09, pumped in Rs.34.33 Billion [US], Rs.11.30 bn [UK], Rs.11.03 bn [Germany], Rs. 5.47 bn [Italy], Rs 5.13 bn [Netherlands] and Rs 4.37 bn [Spain]. Obviously, these funds are purely for proselytizing activities in the name of educational and medical services.

For instance, in a single year, World Vision International, USA pumped in Rs. 706 crores out of which World Vision International of Tamil Nadu received Rs. 192 crores. Gospel for Asia Inc, USA donated Rs.596 crores, Fundacion Vicente Ferrer, Barcelona, Spain gave Rs. 459 crores, Christian Children Fund, USA sent Rs.197 crores, etc.

The advent of the UPA, with an Italian at the helm, saw an alarming rise in the receipt of foreign funds; Tamil Nadu tops the line with Rs.1650 crores in 2008-09 as compared to Rs.775 crores in 2002-03. Next, Andhra Pradesh got Rs.1244 crores and Karnataka Rs.1009 crores and Kerala Rs.991 crores. In all, registered NGOs, mostly Christian, received over Rs.10,000 crores in 2008-09, a 12% increase over 2007-08. These are only the official figures from the Ministry of Home Affairs; then there is unofficial money through hawala… (25)

Columnist Anuradha Dutt observes, “Foreign influence pervades the Government and the NGOs that are dependant on external funds for their projects. Because of their money-power, foreign funding organisations command an influence in finalising the agenda of sovereign nations.”Referring to Graham Hancock’s path breaking book, “Lords of Poverty: The Power, Prestige, and Corruption of the International Aid Business”, 1989, Dutt notes, “the book bared the truth about the vicious cycle of international aid/funding and consequent dependency and indebtedness of emerging nations. It ensures that poverty is never dispelled though billions of dollars are ostensibly poured into the charade of dispelling it. A sinister spin-off is insurgency, rebellion and regime changes at the behest of alien forces.” (26)

Ironically, many members of Sonia Gandhi’s NAC and Team Anna have been recipients of rich foreign funding, recognition and awards. In a masterly work, “NGOs, Activists and Foreign Funds; Anti-Nation Industry,” Krishen Kak and Radha Rajan marshaled a wealth of information to expose the political and anti-nation agenda of some well-known NGOs and activists, their foreign sponsorships, donors and funds, and their sheer lack of public accountability. They stressed the urgent need for a mechanism to counter this anti-nation industry. It is only now that the government is beginning to stir. (27)

The Reality

Too many Christians are allowed by the Secular State to serve their religion at the cost of the  nation. A classic example is IAS Officer Uma Shankar from Tamil Nadu. In July 2010, he was suspended by the then DMK government for producing a fake caste certificate to join the IAS.

When reinstated in September 2010, he told the media, “All my 11 siblings have all along remained Hindus. But my mother named me Ashok and got it recorded in my SSLC book that I was a Christian Pallar. My father was agitated over that and there used to be a lot of violence at home. Finally, when I was doing my final year in college, my father got me officially converted to Hinduism, changed my name to Uma Shankar and also got it notified in the government gazette.” He added, “My community certificate was verified by state government officials twice, based on a request from the Union Public Service Commission in 1990. On the government’s instruction, the Tirunelveli collector had once again summoned me for yet another inquiry about the community certificate, but the state government has no locus standi to initiate such an inquiry when my employer was the UPSC or the central government. Let me make it clear now. For the past two years, I am a practising Christian. However, I have not changed my religion
legally.” (28)

Speaking to the media in Thirunelveli on 21 September 2010 on the issue of reservation for dalit Christians, he advised Hindu Dalits to convert to Christianity personally and remain as Hindus officially (legally), to enjoy reservation benefits. “I have been a Christian for the past two years. However, while joining the service, I was a dalit Hindu,” he boasted. He urged the dalits to go out of the Hindu fold, that “promotes untouchability”, but be careful not to mention this in their certificates. “Be baptised but don’t get the certificate. Go to churches of your choice but don’t sign in the church records.” Mr. Umashankar called for a constitutional amendment to extend benefits to dalits Christians. (29)

When AIADMK came to power, he gave an interview to a Tamil weekly, “I believe in Jesus… Jesus told me that DMK would bite the dust in the elections… Within days of my suspension Jayalalithaa issued a press statement in my support. Then itself I knew that Jesus had blessed her to be the next Chief Minister…” (30)

When Jayalalithaa appointed him Managing Director of Co-optex in June 2011, he ordered the removal of pictures of Hindu deities from the office complex. When he attempted to do the same in the showrooms, public anger forced Jayalalithaa to shift him from Co-optex. (31) Of late, he takes part in evangelical congregations. On 1 Oct. 2011, he addressed a congregation organized by evangelist S. Thangasami of Berachah Prophetic Ministries in Ambattur, in his ‘personal’ capacity, whatever that means.

In all the four pillars of democracy, such persons serving a religious imperialism can be found. They do not serve the nation. They support insurgency; collude with Maoists and separatists; and fund organisations and individual persons who act against the nation. Both Islam and Christianity are out to convert the entire world to their respective religion. They do not believe in the sacred concept of “Mother Nation”. Only followers of Sanatana Dharma worship their bhumi, their nation, their territory. Only dharmis serve the nation. Those who are out to destroy others can never be dharmic.


We are thus witnessing a classic conflict between those who want to invade the religion and culture of the nation, and those who want to protect it. Time is running out, and we need to put in place some urgent measures, if we are to save the nation.

–       Religious conversions must be stopped with an Anti Conversion Law. Foreign tourists who indulge in conversion activities must be punished with jail sentences and deported after serving the sentence, and never given visas again.

–       Inculturation activities must be stopped; Church must not be allowed to use any term or ritual which resembles, even remotely, Hinduism. Government must punish violators.

–       All NGOs must be screened; Government must stop inflow of foreign money. NGOs indulging in conversion activities, child trafficking, child abuse, inculturation, etc., must be brought to book and their licences cancelled.

–       Places of worship must be proportionate to the population of respective religionists, and no new places of worship must be allowed to be constructed where there is none/negligible population of the respective religionists.

–       One religious place must not be constructed in the vicinity of another religious place.

–       No political activity must be allowed inside a place of worship.

–       Hate literatures must not be printed and circulated. Defaulters must be severely punished.

–       Dubious writings in the name of “comparative theology” must be banned.

–       Preaching and propagation must be restricted within the campuses of respective religious places and not allowed in public places. Freedom of religion to preach and propagate is not freedom to convert.

Can Christians dialogue with Hindus on such terms? They cannot face such conditions. That is why they didn’t revisit the Kanchi Acharya after June 2009.

What the Vatican is trying to do in India is simply invasion through the twin strategies of “Interfaith Dialogues” and “Inculturation”. The Congress led UPA government facilitates it by allowing the mushrooming of Christian NGOs and inflow of foreign funds to them. Pseudo Secular political parties turn a blind eye to the machinations of the Church for the sake of votebanks. The foreign controlled secular and slavish media connives with the Church and its devious agenda.

Hindus will now have to be proactive, alert and aggressive and expose these shameless shenanigans. Instead of wasting time on inter-faith jamborees, Hindu religious leaders must negotiate with government; with jati leaders to solve inter-caste issues; to state governments to solve inter-state issues like Cauvery and Mullaperiyar. They must be in regular touch with the common people to stress the importance of unity among Hindus across caste and linguistic lines. Once unity is achieved, everything will fall in place.

Enough of inter-faith farce; it’s time for action within!

This two-part series is by far the most comprehensive and most painstaking compilation of the perversions of the Church around the world. A few points for readers’ attention – while the Catholic Church is the oldest and richest predator, other churches including European Protestant, American Baptist, German Lutheran, Pentecostal, New Life, Jehovah’s Witness, Seventh Day Adventists spreading in India like like cancer and aids combined are just as guilty, as predatory, as destructive, as sexually abusive, as anti-Hindu, and as casteist. There is [practise of untouchability in Churches too. Not only are dalit christians burued separately after death, even in life they have to sit separately in churches. How many dalit pastors and bishops and archbishops do they have and will upper caste christians accept communion from dalit pastors and oriests? Do upper caste christians marry dalit christians? While on Hindu bhumi I will build my temples anywhere, only Abrahamic places of congregation must be strictly regulated. This two-part series must be sent to every blooming bishop and arch bishop. It must be sent to all church magazines and journals and must be sent positively to John Dayal. I congratulate the author. He has done Hindus a very great service. Bless you Sir.

Chronological some up of events by Mr.Tamizhchelvan is very good. We have been repeatedly crying like a child exposing the past, present & future invasion, slavery tactics of missionaries, the atrocities and sexual abuse committed by missionaries for the past two centuries to the present day, the selfish to the core and parasites nature of the church etc., in vain and the secular deaf Government do not want to listen. To the true sense the below points given by the author is actually incorporated as communal targeted violence bill and not the present form the Govt proposed now? 1. Religious conversions must be stopped with an Anti Conversion Law. Foreign tourists who indulge in conversion activities must be punished with jail sentences and deported after serving the sentence, and never given visas again. 2. Inculturation activities must be stopped; Church must not be allowed to use any term or ritual which resembles, even remotely, Hinduism. Government must punish violators. 3. All NGOs must be screened; Government must stop inflow of foreign money. NGOs indulging in conversion activities, child trafficking, child abuse, inculturation, etc., must be brought to book and their licences cancelled. 4. Places of worship must be proportionate to the population of respective religionists, and no new places of worship must be allowed to be constructed where there is none/negligible population of the respective religionists. 5. One religious place must not be constructed in the vicinity of another religious place. 6. No political activity must be allowed inside a place of worship. 7. Hate literatures must not be printed and circulated. Defaulters must be severely punished. 8. Dubious writings in the name of “comparative theology” must be banned. 9. Preaching and propagation must be restricted within the campuses of respective religious places and not allowed in public places. Freedom of religion to preach and propagate is not freedom to convert.

@Vedamgopal. It must be emphasised again and again that all regulations you have listed above apply only to Islam and Christianity and their mosques and churches and prayer houses. Like Radhaji says Tamizhchelvan’s article must be sent to as many Christian NGOs, organizations and padris. It must also be sent to the Prime Minister and MPs. Excellent write up Tamizhchelvan.

@ Observer I do not understand why this man does “devil preaching gospel job” again and again. It is an established fact that Islam & Christianity are un-trustworthy and non compatible with other religion. When compared to racism, slavery, jihad, Kafir, Sharia, cast & untouchability are lesser evil. This cast differences are clearly visible within abrahamic religion also. Please clean your back first and then advise others. Because of Government reservation policies cast system appears to be conflicting and once this reservation goes no body is going to bother about the cast. It is a fact that in India the individual cast group’s strength collectively binding the entire nation in spite of long period of alien rulers. Untouchability is not discrimination or slavery. It is only keeping distance from people with unclean habits including some abnormal morals. Nowadays these people are improving a lot and able to mingle with other community. In fact the abrahamic cult people are possessed with maximum unclean habits & abnormal morals and they are the real untouchable in the view of Hindu to-day. 1. I request to remove the word Kafir/Jihad & other related verses from the Koran first. 2. Totally avoid Sharia law introduction in non-Islamic countries & abide by the common civil code. 3. Give all respect to your Nation first and then think about religion 4. I want Pope to openly announce to stop the soul harvesting business. 5. If Christians were really generous for charity send the funds only to concern Government and not any individual institution.

Mr. Tamizhchelvan has given a list of excellent measures which Hindus need to force the government to do. So how are we going to do it? And who is going to do it? Where are the organizations which can take up these issues? And why haven’t they done anything about it? How is it that the RSS and VHP have not brought about a national anitconversion law in all these years? How is it that the Hindu gurus have not demanded a ban on foreign funds into religious organizations so far? The solutions are obvious to everyone and these have been presented by numerous authors before. But no one has an actual strategy of making any of this come to fruition.
