After the attack on nuns in Pandirikav Meethal Colony recently, the blame was promptly laid on RSS and its workers. The media also gave wide publicity to it as part of their blame game.
Now it is reported that a Marxist-led org-anisation called ?Sapta? was involved in the attacks on the nuns. The missio-naries had reportedly visited the Meethal colony to pursue their evange-lisation efforts. The police have received reliable information on the involvement of Marxist organisations in the assault but are delaying further action on making arrests.
A five-member team of Mother Teresa Missionaries of Charity was assaulted on September 25 at Meethal Colony. There are about 15 houses of SC/ST in this colony out of which three had recently embraced Christianity and the missionaries had lauded there for conversion of the rest of the families. The members of ?Sapta? had stopped the missionaries and opposed the conversion. The missionaries, in the face of threat, however returned in hundreds, with the police force. Enraged at this, the locals assaulted the missionaries.
The blame for assault was shifted on RSS by the pseudo-intellectuals and the Marxists themselves. The so-called secular media of Kerala published full statements of the injured nuns.
The former Union Minister and BJP leader, O. Rajagopal, who visited the spot and met the injured missionaries, has identified the real culprits behind the attack. ?The missionaries had returned to Meethal Colony to convert the rest of the families. The attackers belonged to the ?Sapta? organisation and all of them are Marxist workers,? said Shri Rajagopal. He has demanded that the CBI should make an enquiry into the incident. Only one culprit has so far been arrested out of the 30 accused.
The government of Kerala has decided to entrust the enquiry into the incident to the crime branch.
