The occasion: Young catholic, Christian Nuns raped at a place called Chhapra, in Bihar, India, in October 1999.
Three of these Rogues had encircled one of the Nuns, and Taunted her with these words: “How many Priests we kill; how many Nuns we Rape… Why haven’t Christians like You learnt even now? Just Run Away (from this Country).”
The words above the graphic are a rough translation of the text in the snippet above. That itself had been culled from the well know Tamil magazine ‘Ananda Vigadan,’ of 3.10.1999, under the title: The Continuing Horror. According to my practice, I cut and paste things like these in my Bibles. This one is at the 7th chapter of Acts. …Stephan killed, Nuns Raped.
The incident having taken place in (far away) North, it was prominent enough for Ananda Vigadan, a typical Tamilian magazine, to track it out, and to interview one Baikunt Lal Sharma ‘Prem’, secretary of the All India Vishva Hindu Parishad, typically famed as the the VHP. Incidentally, the ‘Prem’ at the end of his name, seemingly his nickname, as We All know, means Love.
Now this was the question put to him by Ananda Vigadan: “Do you consider the Raping of So many Christian Nuns as Right?” (This could also be translated as: Do you Justify…).
Here’s his answer: “This Attack is Nothing but the Awareness and Awakening that has taken place among the Hindus regarding their Safety(!). No Hindu with Love for his Country can allow this encroachment(?) by a foreign religion. Hence The Attack (The Rape) is Justified.“
I do think encroachment is the best translation for ‘Ooduruval’ there. As You see, I have attached the snippet from the magazine.
As comment, I find it Stupifying, Stupendous, and Flabbergasting that the word ‘Safety‘ should be used by a community that is about 88% strong, against a community that has Not crossed 3% despite 2 Centuries. And one that is Known Not to be Violent. (My brothers in the North East do spoil the record).
And Love for the Country? Do they mean We do not Love Our Country? Are the Armed Forces of India Ill represented by Christians and Muslims?
And the man who says all this is called ‘Prem,’ …Love! Baikunt Lal Sharma ‘Prem’, secretary of the All India Vishva Hindu Parishad of that time.
But I do not recall the Catholic Church having Apologized for the ‘Inquisition,’ the excesses during the ‘Crusades,’ and the Sexual Abuse of Children of Modern Times.
So what is the big deal in Canonizing Mother Teresa? …The catholic church is such a Viper’s Pit, that even the (current) Pope has to tread Softly, Oh-So-Softly, as he issues many Sensible comments. As the most recent one:

Well, depending on the media, they will use particular Nouns, Verbs and Adjectives. Here, this one has used the words: ‘Lashed out,’ but it sounds like, as I have always said of this man, ‘Mewing‘ to me.
What does it all come down to?
Those whom Common Sense says are on the Right path Mew, and those who dare Rape Our Daughters and Sisters Roar, and DO it. Let’s put our Thinking Caps on, and GET INTO ACTION.
