Look who got arrested for vandalising church property and planting saffron flags on the spot — all Christians!!
In connection with indulging in rampage in a banana plantation belonging to Babbukatte Nityadhar Church and trying to disrupt peace in the region, Ullal policemen arrested seven persons on Wednesday March 18.
They are Jayson Verghese (23), Vijit Sunny Rozario (21), Araki Alfred (20), Roshan Cutinho (26), all from Nityadhar Nagar and Ronald Roshan (22), a resident of Kuttar Prakash Nagar. They were produced in the court on Wednesday.
On Monday morning, the banana plantation was found to have been damaged heavily to look as if people belonging to a particular community had barged into the plantation, and a saffron flag had been planted there, signifying that Hindu outfits had been involved with the destruction. The incident took place at a time when Hindu Samajotsav was being organized in the city.
The policemen said that during interrogation, the arrested persons revealed, they wanted to disturb the peace in the region by projecting the incident as a handiwork of a particular community.
Many such incidents have occured in Mangalore ever since BJP came to power in Karnataka. Some youth on motorcycle will arrive, throw stones at some church and immediately take off before someone can catch them. Next day, newspapers will scream: “Another church attacked in BJP-ruled karnataka.”
The Indian padres themselves seem to be involved in this game to acquire sympathy and funding from White Christians. There is another possibility that a particular political party sitting in opposition in Karnataka and licking its wounds is paying these people to do these acts and plant saffron flags before running away, to prove that “Hindu fundamentalists” are ruling Karnataka.
Church has always thrived on “persecution” stories. If there is no persecution, the padres make sure that things occur which look like persecution. One of their common tactic is to circulate cooked up stories about nuns being raped and churches being vandalised. These “persecution” stories are then read out in churches in Europe and US and collections taken from the faithful for the “suffering bretheren” living with pagan barbarians. Everybody enjoys the profit.
These incidents of “Christian persecution” are also orchestrated by the church to fatten the register on India that is being maintained at the US State Deptt. about oppression of minorities. The ultimate intent of the church is to persuade the US to intervene militarily to save Indian Christians from the “Hindu Taliban” and create a separate country for them (much like the US created Israel for the Jews). Here, I recall Rajiv Malhotra’s words:
But when I started to research on this, I saw a ‘Wall Street Journal’ front-page article two or three years ago titled “US Evangelists Driving Foreign Policy Intervention.” It is a very long article that showed a hundred years’ history of American evangelicals not only driving domestic policies like abortion, gay rights and (nowadays) stem cell research very successfully but also very strongly driving the foreign policy of the US.
The foreign policy evangelicals want is that the United States should intervene wherever in the world there is a pocket of Christians who consider themselves to be under threat. Once the United States agrees that that is the official policy of the government, then the evangelicals actually go to those areas in the world, trigger some trouble and use those incidents to bring United States intervention.
Now the dossier of such cases of persecution of Christians in India is growing in the US. It is a huge dossier and there are regular hearings in Washington in which the evangelicals invite those Indians who complain about such persecution of Christians. There is a long line of such Indians who are granted visa and travels grants to go to the US and give testimony in the Congress.
Also, there are well-organized networks in India which have been funded by these evangelical entities to provoke trouble, to monitor persecution and then go over to report and lobby in Washington for US government’s intervention. These incidents are splashed all over the US media. So one day the United States may decide that “Ok, the Hiindu Taliban has got hold of North India. We can go and intervene here and there and protect some Christianized pockets in South India. We have built our own base there and we have built a network of support.”
That is why I say that these false incidents of “Christian persecution” should be taken very seriously and all padres involved in these should land behind bars immediately.
Here is one possible suspect who may have paid off those Christians to vandalise Church property during the Hindu Samajotsav Rally in Mangalore organised by the VHP:
Gowda: Karnataka situation worse than Gujarat’s
BANGALORE: Blaming the communal violence in the coastal districts of Karnataka on the recent Hindu Samajotsav rally at Mangalore, the former Prime Minister, H.D. Deve Gowda, on Friday alleged that the communal situation in Karnataka was worse than in Gujarat.
Addressing a press conference here, Mr. Gowda criticised the Bharatiya Janata Party and its affiliates for organising the rally, aimed at creating a “Hindu vote bank.”
Mr. Gowda referred to the communal incidents that rocked coastal Karnataka after the Vishwa Hindu Parishad organised the rally on March 15.
Whenever the BJP or some Hindu groups hold an event in Karnataka, especially Mangalore, some “communal trouble” mysteriously takes place at churches. Maybe the Humble Farmer has something more to share about who pays these “communalists” who throw stones at churches a day before the BJP rallies and vanish into thin air.
