Sixteen years ago, in March 1992, the body of Sister Abhaya was found in the well of the St. Pious X Convent in Kottayam District, Kerala. Now, in 2008, after several rounds of police and CBI investigations, the dark minds that terminated this ?Angel of Christ? are still free, thanks to the political and numerical clout of the Christian church in Kerala. Although the brain mapping, polygraph and narco-analysis tests conducted on the prime suspects Father Thomas Kottoor, Fr. Jose Poothrukayil and Sister Sephy at Central Forensic Sciences Lab at Bangalore and Delhi proved positive, the CBI, the Premier investigation agency in the country, has the audacity to tell the court, ?we have only clues, not clinching evidence?. There are also reports that CD'sof narco-analysis on these suspects have been tampered with! Such is the reach of the Christian church?which went, then, upto Narasimha Rao to torpedo the case and now upto Sonia Gandhi!
Sister Anupa Mary (22) who joined St. Mary'sconvent in Port Kollam on May 27 was found hanging from the ceiling of her room in the convent on August 11 at 4 AM. Her Father Pappachan was a cook in the Bishop'sHouse at Kollam and she was promised medical education along with her nunnery.
Her father has alleged that his daughter was physically, mentally and sexually tortured by the other sisters of the convent, especially the Mother Superior. He said Anupa Mary was asked to wash the undergarments of other nuns, clean their toilets and do all menial jobs. He also alleged that his daughter was not allowed to close the doors of her room at night and the nuns used to come to her room and sexually abuse her. The sister in her suicide note, has put the blame on the Mother Superior and other sisters for her suicide.
Following all round political and public outcry the Government has ordered crime branch enquiry by IG Harinath Mishra.
An unnatural event in suicide cases, the cloth used for suicide was cut and the sister'sbody placed in the cot, before police arrival. Also valuable evidences in investigations have been destroyed. Moreover media reports say that the unnatural deaths of several sisters in convents of Kerala, for the past three to four decades have been buried, no questions asked.
With such skeletons in their backyard, what morality has the Pope to ask pardon for crimes committed in the name of Christianity and to falsely blame Sangh Parivar for attacks on its institutions.
If the church continues protecting the vultures who masquerade in the name of fathers and sisters and sexually abuse and murder young girls, who leave their homes and come to serve Christ, the day is not far when the believers will overthrow such people and butcher them.
