(Organiser, 8.3.2015); This is with reference to the article ‘ Serving People or Poisoning Souls’ in Organiser by Sandeep Mahapatra. It is surprising and shocking to see the Indian media and the Indian politicians coming down heavily on Mohan Bhagwat’s claim of Mother Teresa. Not only was his statement taken out of context but the Indian media and Congress politicians seems to be ignorant of the fact that it was Mother Teresa who had herself accepted that she was working for spreading Christianity and was only doing Missionary work. Not just Indian icons right from Swami Vivekananda to Mahatma Gandhi have always been critical of conversions but we had the likes of Desmond Tutu who went ahead to say “When the Missionaries came to Africa, they had the Bible and we had the land. They said let us close our eyes and pray. And when we opened them, we had the Bible and they had our land.”
Controversy: Owaisi, are you a Muslim?
(Organiser, 18.1.2015); This refers to the article, ‘ Controversy: Owaisi ,are you a Muslim?’ by Dr Pramod Pathak in Organiser, page No. 40. Mr Asauddin Owaisi has made a statement that every child is born a Muslim, but his parents and the society convert him to other religions. In that case, not with an intention of insulting anyone or Islam, we wish to clarify that why is it that one has to undergo ‘ Circumcision’ operation for becoming a complete Muslim after the birth, and not take birth along with it. When already we are reeling under the hatred among various religions, caste and creed Mr Owaisi is adding salt to the wound and instigating the issue.
Faith , Investments and Indo-US Relations
(Organiser, 8.2.2015); The writer Shri Bhagyashree Pande, in his article titled, ‘Faith, Investments and Indo-US Relations’, in Organiser says that Obama’s reference to tolerance for all religions in the Townhall speech , was an oblique advice to Shri Modi and BJP. Even if it was so, US President cannot be blamed for it , because the Indian print media as well as TV channels in addition to ant- Hindu political parties are raising lot of hue and cry over petty things like ‘Ghar Vapasi’, Ram Mandir, etc. and equating it with Talibans and Muslim terrorists. It was due to such anti- Hindu behaviour of Congress led UPA government, that Shri Modi was denied visa to the US. To check this growth Bharat should be constitutionally declared a Hindu state, as it should have been with the creation of Pakistan in 1947, no body inside this truncated India would have dared to raise hue and cry as it is happening now. In European countries many restrictions are being imposed on the Muslims by the respected governments, but no body, except the Muslims, object to it because they are they are Christian nations.
