Letter to the Archbishop Bernard Moras-Archbishop of B’lore

A letter to Archbishop Bernard Moras-Archbishop of B’lore,

Dear Archbishop,

On the 20th Sunday Feb I attended the services in St Antony’s Church Madiwala-Blore.The announcement for the Christian’s massive rally on the 21st was not only announced but pamphlets were distributed.
It is on this I would like to share my perception and thoughts
The candle light vigil on the 21st was meant to reject the Justice Somasekharan Report and to demand withdrawal of ‘falsely’ framed cases against 150 Christian youth in Mangalore.The ‘Christians’ rally comprised apart from the catholics and their bishops, the following bishops and their churches:-CSI, Methodist, Believers Church, Baptist, Lutheran. Seventh Day Adventist, Jacobite, Mar Thoma, Orthodox, Assembly of God and Federation of Christian churches and Organisations. Quite a mouth full and an impressive arraign of the ‘Flock’

Let me put across to you the following points for your consideration

1-You have politicized the church and the echo. ‘Do not make the House of my Father a den of thieves’, resounds down the corridors of time. You may wonder how this fits into this impressive and massive vigil business. When you politicize the church and make demands by using numerical minority vote bank for the politician to see that we have power then it means muscle power which goes along with money power. To use religion and to ghetto people is divisive and anti-national. You have misused your position and authority to barter and bargain. The politicians yield not because of justice and fair play but because of the vote bank politics-this towards attaining their own power.
You hence played their game and turned into a semi politician and used the ‘flock’ as tools. This needs to be rejected because it is unchristian. Absolutely against the way Jesus showed when he was betrayed and led.

2-Why do you hold the brief for the Evangelical Churches? Are you responsible for the great damage they wrought at the grassroot levels-the injuries and the insults they heap on not only the Hindus but even on the Catholic Church? The poaching they indulge in to garner greater numbers to their churches? They do the mischief and come to you for leadership for the simple fact that they are self appointed bishops and religious politicians which gather assemblies under the title of churches. The Catholic church has greater credibility,is monolithic and has political power. Hence anything that happens to them they prefer to piggyback ride on you and you easily fall for this sort of ‘leadership’ because it gives you a sense of false pride and power.

3-How are you sure that the 150 cases against the ‘Christian’ youth are false. Can you vouch for it? I know from experience that the Evangelical churches hate the Catholic Church and their ‘bishops’ and pastors do their best to wean Catholics to their churches. It is thus possible that the damages done to the catholic churches must be the handiwork of the Christian youth. This is easily acceptable if you really know the ground realities
If the Justice Somasekharan Report is what Yeddurappa wants then the CBI probe report will be what Veerappa Moily wants.Will the former be untruth and the latter truth? The latter may please you and please Veerappa Moily because of minority appeasement policy which the Congress blatantly follows to the detriment of truth and justice.

4-If the cases are false then why did you not engage good ‘Christian’ lawyers to fight it out in the courts and uphold truth? What if every community organizes massive rallies and with huge numbers threaten and bully the police and the politicians to withdraw cases. So next time it could be the Hindus and the Muslims who will engage in such rallies. Then why the courts and the whole judiciary system and the police?All criminals can run amuck.

5-You would have had greater credibility if you had chosen ‘massive’ rallies to decry corruption at the Centre-The scams are raining on all sides but you were silent. It is only Yeddurappa whom you target.
Justice and Truth knows no creed and caste and you need to fight to uphold these. But typical like a politician you took sides-for one the silence and for the other vociferous condemnation. This is a skewed and biased perception and hence cannot uphold truth and justice

5-Why do you pick at the mole in the eyes of Yeddurappa while carrying a beam in your own? There is so much of injustice within the church be it against the dalits, discrimination against women, unfaithfulness to priestly vows et al.Had you thought of special rallies to highlight these and to condemn these?

Finally I need to give a short introduction of myself. I have been on all committees starting from the parish, diocesan, to the national levels of the Catholic Church. I had been a member of the CBCI’s NAC and am aware of what I am talking.

I had seen the TV telecast a year ago when the CM of Karnataka came to visit you to listen to your grievance. I was shocked at the way you behaved. A dignitary of the church-must exhibit the Jesus-like values of compassion, humility and courage. But you were so brash with him .He too is a dignitary and represent the people. You lost an opportunity to show the difference between a church dignitary and a politician .In fact the CM came off in a better light. But you showed your power, your pride not only in words but in your body language-

I am fully aware that what I am just put down will not be well received this because of the belief that the church has Truth bundled up at the top and it percolates down to us through the hierarchy. This is completely wrong. ‘Authority is no criterion for truth’. ‘From the babes’ mouths will come the truth’. I believe in Jesus and what He stood for-a just society. He did not establish a religion. Do not use Him to justify your aggrandizement and divisive strategies. “My kingdom is not of this world”. Finally let me remind you that TRUTH was crucified by the conspiracy of priests and the civil authorities-the same is being done down the ages. I fervently pray that Truth dawns on you.

Yours sincerely,
Dr Mrs Hilda Raja,
Vadodara.

    It needs guts to be a Christian and be able to post this open letter to the Archbishop – even if its contents are true. Those of us who have seen poor Yeddyurappa being snubbed by the Archbishop on TV would be able to see her point. In fact it was not necessary for the CM of a state to visit the Archbishop personally but the CM wanted to walk the extra mile to reassure the Christian community at a time injustice was seen to be done to it. Unfortunately neither the Archbishop, nor the Christian community, nor most deplorably the “secular” media saw Yeddyurappa’s point.

    We must laud Dr. Hilda Raja for her relentless campaigning for truth and justice. If only there were more of her ilk there would have been amity between communities.

    Dear Ma’am,

    I am a great admirer of the way you articulate your arguments–especially regarding an issue like the Somasekhara report which is so contentious. It is difficult for a Hindu-like me- to put forward the same points since I will automatically be labelled as ‘right wing’ or ‘saffron’ or ‘not secular’. I find it increasingly difficult to convince educated, well informed people -Christians, Muslims and (unfortunately) Hindus- that one can profess to be a Hindu and yet be tolerant of other religions. It appears that these days, in India, only Christians, Muslims, Sikhs and possibly Parsis can proudly claim to folllow their respective religions. Ironically, only the Hindu has to accept ‘secularism’ as his religion.
    I don’t know if this because of the overwhelming influence of the electronic media which is dominated by Christians/ Muslims/ communists or because of votebank politics or both. What I do know is that unless more people like you make your voice more strident, our country is going to be needlessly fractured along the lines of religion. Would you know of any other Christians who share your views and who will rise as a single voice, fearlessly, to point out where the Church is sending wrong messages?

    Warm regards,
    Vinita

      DearVinita,
      That was a very straight,forthright response.Yes I do know a few priests and even superior of nuns who are on the same wave length as me.But then unlike the West they will not openly articulate because of economic security and because they will be simply thrown out-where will they go?In fact I got a congrats from a nun who is a provincial-superior of superiors!Well time may prove the Truth.I am a follower of Sananta Dharma and belive that god is within us and not an object-that makes all the difference.It is unfortunate that I do not know lay christians- who will speak out like me.Though in private they admire and congratulate me.But you must remember that the hold of the churches has a vice like grip-from womb to tomb on their followersd.-Right from babehood they are instiled with false beliefs and to grow out of these-one must delearn and rewrite the script .this is not possible for all.Exposure is another thing.I have been fortunate though from the LKG to the High school I have been in convent schools-fortunately my college studies was in a government institution.lOne must have the raw material alreay to be able to reject that which is untrue.It is safer and rewarding(worldly) by simply accepting what comes from the pulpit.mOST OF THE CHRISTIANS ARE POOR and are fully engaged in the daily business of life-so time is another contraint.Thank you for your warm response and I sincerely wish that many like you would spread the message of truth-fearlessly.My country is First and Last for me.The others can fall by the road side.My loyolty hence is to my motherland and her people-and am prepared to sacrifice anything towards that.

        Dear Ma’am,

        I decided to write to you for the same reason–that you are forthright!! I think the time has come for the citizens of India to quit beating about the bush with clever wordplay.I have been following your blog from sometime now and respect your views immensely.
        Perhaps if there are so many who feel constrained by the Church (or its expectations of its parish), it is time for them to shake off the yoke of the Holy See or the Archbishop of Canterbury and have an independent Church of India? Not easy by any means, but if Martin Luther and Henry VIII could do it in the 16th century, surely the Christians in India can do it in the 21st century? Christianity in India can then be a true reflection of the teachings of Christ and not a political agenda. After all, the money that comes in from abroad is not needed to sustain the religion, it is needed for propagation. We need Christians in India as much as Indian Christians need their country. I have no doubt that Indian Christians love the country. It is only when religion gains precedence over the country that there is a feeling of betrayal. Like the Malankara Orthodox Church, which is proud not to have extra-territorial allegiance, the Church of India could work towards the betterment of its flock independent of the diktats from outside the country. Is this a simplistic solution to the problem? Possibly. But it is one of the many solutions and perhaps the only one that will hold the country together by keeping foreign vested interests at bay.

        Love
        Vinita

    WHILE I FULLY AGREE WITH THE AUTHOR,I AM OF THE OPINION THIS KIND OF BULLYING THE AUTHORITIES IS PREVALENT IN ALL RELIGIOUS GROUPS WHENEVER SOME MEMBERS OF THEIR GROUPS GET INTO SOME FRACAS WITH THE AUTHORITIES .iMMEDIATELY SOME SMALL CONTINGENT ALWAYS BENT UPON CHAOS  AND UNREST TO GAIN CHEAP POPULARITY.IT IS ONLY A QUESTION OF GEGREE AND STATUS OF THE LEADER PROJECTING THE ALLEGED BIAS OF THE AUTHORITIES.IN FACT OUR POLITICIANS REVEL IN SUCH OUTBURSTS FOR THEIR OWN VOTE BANKS AS MENTIONED BY THE AUTHOR.
    IN ADDITION ,ANTI SOCIAL ELEMENTS JOIN THIESE GROUPS TO FISH IN TROUBLED WATERS.
    IN THIS PARTICULAR INCIDENT, IT IS UNFORTUNSTE THESE UNRULY ELEMENTS ARE ENCOURAGED BY PERSONS WHO ARE EXPECTED TO LEAD THEM IN THE RIGHT PATH

    Your frankness and courage are admirable.I am convinced that this special service by the Archbishop of Bangalore would have got it’s impetus, to a great extent, from the
    recent comments and behaviour of the Governor of Karnataka, Mr Bhardwaj towards the Somashekara report. The Governor, like his
    handlers in New Delhi, has been playing minority vote bank politics
    with this report. For a high dignitary of the Church to endorse and openly encourage such actions is deplorable to say the least.
    Unfortunately this is the way politics is played in this nation. Power, and the vote which legitimises it, is the end, and nothing else matters. Minority vote banks are rich harvest in this loot of votes.
    Unless each one of us starts to think of the greater nation as against our narrow allegiation to religion, creed etc, the way we are headed is horrifying to contemplate! Our leaders, in politics or elsewhere, are shamelesss, and it is upto the Aam Admi to get up and make his voice heard.

      Thank you Sir for your response.This was no special service but a massive rally exactly like the political ones.I had sent the letter to the Archbishop himself.We are all Indians and need to rally round the banner of the tricolour.There may be differences but the bishop and the politicans are playing vote bank politics-thereby dividing the people and ghettoing them into water tight compartments.Let people organise rallies to condemn injustices or to highlight something but that should be above creed and caste.I agree with you that the Governor Bardhwaj is instigating people.He is the one who unfreezed the loot and allowed Quottrochi to cooly walk away with it; and the PM stated that he was out of the loop.The PM is a man of alibis -the govenors are faithful slaves of the Sonia Gandhi.Bardhwaj has been sent to Karnatak with a motive and he is trying his best to fulfil that end.Regards.

      Dear Sankaramani-as usual your response is always encouraging.Another friend also suggested the same-to bring persons of the same frequency together.In fact I had tried it earlier but did not succeed.The Church is super powerful.No government even can shake it.But then like China what we need is a National church with no foreign allegiance.This is possible only if the GOI intervens.In China everything continues as per norms-rites and rituals-only the Pope has no control or say.It is correct theologically also.The umbilical cord has to be cut -I had written the same words when I did a course in theology and my guide marked”excellent’He was a jesuit.Many priests and nuns are on the same frequency but unable to shake themselves out of the institutionalsied church because of social and financial security.Society too is harsh on those you come out-one must be prepared to walk the lone path.This is difficult.

      Dear Malarmananan-you can go ahead and translate it.But see the translation adheres to the original.And state therein that it is a translation.This because Tamil a beautiful language is better expressive and incisive and hence could easily divert from the original text with a flourish.I think translating it in Tamil is good because there should be a Movement against the false propoganda-the stranglehold the church has on its”flock”(MANATHAI)May be we should opt for the China model of Cathiolic church because then loyalties will not be divided and extra territorial.I am aware of the kind of Evangelical propaganda that is on in TN.But look at AP where so many temples have been destroyed and in their place churches have come up.It was during the regime of YSR that it was formented.Remember former Speaker Balyogi who died in a helicopter crash-well the copter belonged to an Evangelist.I have gone into some parts of AP and there found that the Evangelists use the helicopters to fly into interior areas and baptise the poor tribals and the poverty stricken people.Then they disappear.Under the garb of development the christian churches and its affiliated NGOs are wroughting havoc.Money is flowing into their kitties.It is nothing but a commercial business.Why not leave our peopel alone with their beliefs and faith and undertaken only development.
      There is a jesuit priest in Loyola College-Fr P.Ceyrac he is in his 90s now he came to India from France when he was 18-studied Tamil-took a BA in Tamil from the Pachiyyappas college in those days-He has undertaken a lot of projects and aided the poor-till date he has not converted a single person.I was closely associated with him.There is onlya Power-call it by any name and that Power no one religion or group has the monopoly of.Within us lies the that Power…..I was stirred to alaborate bcause you are from TN-I lived there for 52 years and am now in Vadodara-Gujarat one of the best administered State in India.My only son is here and hence my husband and myself migrated to live with him.Pl note that journalists must be courageous.They have a duty to dissiminate truth-nothing but the truth.Thats the ethics of journalism.I wish you all the best

    Dear Ma’am, You have put succinctly what all right thinking Indians think and feel about this Subject. It is really a beacon of hope in this atmosphere of distrust and acrimony.Unless we all come together as Indians we’ll not be able to take India forward.As it is we have jihad terror trying to break J&K from the Union,and creating foment in other parts of the country.Along with it is the Maoist mayhem in other parts where they don’t operate.Now with the Church joining in with this kind of divisive propaganda,we don’t know what to say.I really find it difficult to understand how the church which refuses to accept the findings of one Judge accepts the findings of another judge.So in the end it becomes a case of one’s word against another.The tragedy today is neither the news organisations nor Politicians both of whom are supposed to leave aside their personal Bias while working ,don’t do so.The media reports news that helps their hypothesis,while the politician works towards his Vote capturing.The casualty here is the Truth.& our Country. But your letter brings with it a feeling of Hope for change for India.Thank-you.

      Dear Ram,Kindly read my article on Somasekharan Report.I have the gut feeling that Justice Somasekharan was honest and did his homework well.He could not name the organisations from which the christian youth come because they would be only paid goons-or even some some small christian fringe groups which are fundamentalistic.Call them religious terror groups.If one can call ‘saffron terror’ why not christian terror.I am convinced that rivalry between churches must have been the root cause and this is going on -in Nagaland the Baptists indulge in Human rights violations against the Catholics.It is Anti-catholic bigotry-in Orrisa it is the World Vision-Kandhammal if properly probed will bring out this aspect-in AP it is the Assembly of God and Full Truth church along with the Born again(YSR and his family belong to this) and the Baptists.Justice Somasekharan was on the right track.Only the christians do not want to accept the truth-they want to blame the Hindu groups.This suits the politicians like Veerappa Moily for his minority vote bank.Governor Bardhwaj is another Congress agent in the Raj Bhavan-the sooner he is send packing the better for Karnataka.Do you level best to out beat lies and untruth and during the coming elections give your physical and mental strength-get your friends and families to vote out the corrupt.

I feel that people like yourself who understand what sanatan dharma is and are speaking out are also a sign of that.

      dear Neelkanth,
      Thank you for your response.To be frank I do not have much knowldeg of the gnostic gospels.But what I kbnow is -since the discovery of 13 codices of the Ng Hammadi library in 1945 the Berlin Gnostic Codex8502 a few decades before,such texts as the Gospel of Thomas and the Gospel of Mary and Judas Iscariot have become significant part of cultural and religious life of people who have access to these..The Nag Hammadi Scriptures were gathered in collections found near Nag Hammadi and elsewhere in Egypt.The church does not recognise these gospels-for them it is only Mathew Mark,Luke and John.The rest they discard as heretical-for reasons best known to them.Who are the authors and which sect wrote these are all shrouded in mystery.Rome is a expert in forgery even the gospels accepted by the Catholic church is different from the gospels accepted by other churches.There are at least 40 different versions.So the best is to leave them and take the values for which a man called Jesus stood for.Otherwise we will get unnecessarily involved in semantics and academics which has no relevance for the common people.

      Sita, thanks for the link about Justice Saldanha’s report. So more bullying tactics -they will ensure that Yeddyurappa and Acharya are refused visas to Western/ European countries and the US- have been used. What a pity that this is happening in Karnataka where the Mangalore Catholics lived happily with their Hindu neighbours for centuries, where the ‘circles’ in the city trace the Brahminical roots of the Christians.

      Hilda Ma’am,
      There must be some reason (other than Sonia Gandhi’s obvious power at the centre) that the Catholics are suddenly turning against Hindus on a large scale. Do you think it is because the education sector -which till a decade ago was ruled by Christian institutions- has been challenged by non-minority trusts who are doing as good a job? After all, the appeal of the faith was also linked to the promise of literacy/education. This is just a thought, the reasons may be many…

      Warm regards

        Vinita I am not sure why the Catholics are truning against the hINDUS.To me it seems a conspiracy of the politicians.There has been a free run given to the christians-in the Minority rights-the more one gets the more one wants.More obvious is the Evangelical churches and its terrior.The catholics are falling prey to this.Sonia at the power centre is one significant factor.She has her hidden agenda.She has placed ‘her’ men and women in power positions.Goernor Bhardwaj is one such.He has his own agenda and that is to desaddle Yeddyurappa.The cow belt they are not able to corner-the North east is gone-all christianized-Tamilnadu also with AP following suit.The one and only State with the BJP in power in the south is Karnataka and Bhardwaj wants to dislodge it.
        This is the Bharwaj who allowed Quottrrochi to take his loot of India.Where is patriotism.Governor Bharwaj is an agent of the Congress-more specifically of Mrs Sonia Gandhi.

        Vinita I am not sure why the Catholics are turning against the hINDUS.To me it seems to be a conspiracy of the politicians.There has been a free run given to the christians-in the Minority rights-the more one gets the more one wants.More obvious is the Evangelical churches and its terror.The catholics are falling prey to this.Sonia at the power centre is one significant factor.She has her hidden agenda.She has placed ‘her’ men and women in power positions.Governor Bhardwaj is one such.He has his own agenda and that is to desaddle Yeddyurappa.The cow belt they are not able to corner-the North east is gone-all christianized-Tamilnadu also with AP following suit.The one and only State with the BJP in power in the south is Karnataka and Bhardwaj wants to dislodge it.
        This is the Bhardwaj who allowed Quottrrochi to take his loot of India.Where is patriotism.Governor Bhardwaj is an agent of the Congress-more specifically of Mrs Sonia Gandhi.
        All the best to you.

    The Christian leaders of Karnataka brought the US Consul general at Chennai, to Bangalore,which is an anti-national act.One amongst these three is Mr Sangliana,a Mizo Catholic,for whom the Hindus of Karnataka have shown unalloyed love and yet he spends all his time in conversion activities.Not for him that the Hindu Reangs have been driven out of Mizoram for their refusal to convert to Christianity.With Sonia wielding supreme power in the country,Christian leaders have gone berserk in hurting the Hindus.

      Dear Nagaraj,your last sentence is the crux and the core point.”With Sonia wielding supreme power in the country christians leaders have gone berserk in hurting hindus.
      “Fully agree but add another dimension-why are the hindus taking it and making themself soft targets?It is the vote bank policy of the politicians that is at work.Hindus must form a vote bank-thats the only solution.Justice and truth does not stand a chance in todays upside down perception of the politicians

    its sad to read writings from learned persons like hilda raja, who has used maximum english vocabulary. quotating biblical lines as and when she felt like (remember even devil quotes bible). now regarding questioning the rally held by archbishop bernard moras. u said in your writing dont peck dust from yediyurappas eye and so on. remember even bible says dont judge others. so stop judging others and have an introspection about yourself on what good you have done to the christains if not for common people in your life. dont open your mouth criticising on the stands taken by a church leader. archbishop bernard moras stood as a voice for those people who have been beaten, raped, killed, trashed and put in jail with false cases for being witness to christ. he was instrumental in bringing together all denomination members of churches under one umbrealla called united christian forum for human rights. did you become voice of those people who have been persecuted for being witness to christ? go serve them first and talk next.

      Look who’s judging.Couldn’t accept the truth in Mrs.Raja’s article or her questions so you take refuge in the Bible .Seems that the church has been successful in brain-washing you into being blind to the truth.

    Only a Satan’s cousin could see these things which had never happened: “people who have been beaten, raped, killed, trashed and put in jail with false cases”

    Dear Dr. Mrs. Hilda Raja,
    Providentially one of my friends forwarded your mail. Assuming it to be of common concern, I went through. I liked above all your straight-forward attitude. My loyalty goes to the truth. So, here below is how I look at them. Please go through if you would like to. You can always get back to me with your feedback that I would cherish. At the outset let me be very clear – this is not a fault-finding mechanism.
    1. Using religion to mobilize people to voice out against Somashekar panel report is divisive, anti-national and unchristian. This is not the Jesus-way. This is the crux of your first point. It is real Christian and magnanimous.
    2. “Their faults and they pay” to evangelical churches… Unlike the previous point, you remind the Archbishop (Abp) the injuries and damages caused by the Evangelicals. I am forced to ask you this: What happened to the Jesus’ way you mentioned in the previous paragraph? Should the Abp not forgive the breakaway churches?
    3. Verification Of Objective Facts: Abp does not demand justice “according to Yedyurappa or according Moily,” but an unbiased finding of what really happened. If CHRISTIANS are culprits, LET THEM BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE. Remember what Kushwant Singh said during Ayodhya riots, criminals have no religion. Even if there are Christian culprits, we should go ahead to prove that we stand for truth, not for a religion. Let us be diligent to understand that Veerappa Moily is again a politician trying to use the situation for his gains.
    4. You have a point here!
    5. This sounds a bit silly. You seemed to be telling don’t be bothered about what had happened to you in Bengaluru, but fight for truth and justice for what happened in Delhi. If the Abp does stand for truth and justice on the local turf, what makes you think he would stand for it at the national capital?
    Again, this statement is very true “Justice and Truth knows no creed and caste and you need to fight to uphold these.”
    (5) 6. I feel you completely deviated from the topic here. We have an issue and a person. Here, these two are messed up. The bishop is neither the victim nor the culprit, but a leader of the victims. Let me explain this with an example; One day you couldn’t drop your children to the school, would you keep quiet if your boss does not pay salary for that month? Yes, we have problems and concerns in the church that need attention. This should not make our eyes shut on the pain inflicted and injustice caused.
    The Abp’s reaction to the incident esp his dealings with the CM were not becoming. This was felt by many people. The conclusion is again elusion from the theme. Your final concern is another topic which needs more deliberation and insight.
    With regards,
    Kantharaj, Delhi
