Churches in Thoothukudi, Tirunelveli, and Kanyakumari are hubs of anti-national operations in Tamil Nadu – PGurus

Anti-Sterlite Protesters and Police in Thoothukudi

PGURUSThe VSRC team found that the anti-Sterlite movement is the continuation of many such agitations against development initiatives in Tamil Nadu, with links between the Church and the rioters. – PGurus

If the findings by a group of professionals drawn out from fields like internal security, defence forces, judiciary and political observers are any indication, Tamil Nadu has almost become a testing laboratory for the Church-Islamist-Left-Maoist-Periyarite axis which want the State to break away from Indian union and form a separate Christian republic a la the Tamil Eelam visualised by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

Vedic Science Research Centre (VSRC), a Chennai based think tank, in a detailed study held all over the State has found that Tamil Nadu is boiling, in a subtle manner, fuelled by the Periarites, Marxists, Church, Maoists and Islamic terrorists. The riots at Thoothukudy in the month of May 2018 that claimed the lives of 15 persons were fomented by this anti-national axis, the VSRC team found out. The role of international agencies in augmenting the riots has to be probed, said the VSRC report which has been accessed by Team PGurus.

An immaculate investigation by this team brought out the link between the Church and the rioters. “The various factions of the Church are behind the agitation against Sterlite Copper unit at Thoothukudi. Their allegation that the Thoothukudi region is polluted only because of the Sterlite Copper Unit is questionable. There are hundreds of chemical industries in the State Industries Promotion Corporation of Tamil Nadu Industrial Estate. The question is why Sterlite Copper is being singled out?” asked one of the team members who probed the Thoothukudi riots. He spoke on the condition of anonymity for fear of reprisal from the private army funded by the Church.

The VSRC team also found that the anti-Sterlite movement is the continuation of many such agitations and arsons against development initiatives in Tamil Nadu. The VSRC investigators have concluded that police resorted to firing only as a last measure and that too to save more than 200 innocent lives who had to bear the brunt of the rioters.

“The agitation against Kudankulam  Nuclear Power Project, the Marina Beach sit-in demanding the removal of the Supreme Court ban on Jallikkattu, the demonstrations against the government of India to set up hydrocarbon plants in Cauvery Delta Region, the ONGC mission to extract shale gas from the Cauvery districts, the agitation demanding the shutting down of the Indian Neutrino Observatory at Theni, and the agitation against the setting up of the world-class InterContinental Container Shipment Terminal in Kanyakumari district are all interconnected. The ultimate idea is to block and prevent all kind of development works in this part of the country and to condition the region for a secessionist movement, which has already taken shape in the area,” said Ramakrishnan Gauthaman, director, VSRC.

The report quotes even former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh who told an international publication that the agitators at Kudankulam in Tirunelveli district were being funded by agencies from foreign countries[1]. “Dr. Manmohan Singh had said that the NGOs in Tirunelveli and Thoothukudi Districts were receiving funds from Organisations based in the United States of America and Scandinavian countries. The money was channeled mainly through the church-based NGOs namely outscoring Diocese Association and Tuticorin Multipurpose Social Service Society,” the report quotes.

The report submitted by the VSRC to the Home Ministry is a work done painstakingly. Each point mentioned in the report has been substantiated by documentary evidence, pictures, audio/ video clippings and inputs provided by the residents of the local community. “This controversial plant has been a money spinner for many politicians, bureaucrats, civil society groups and Church priests for long. The current bout of the strike is to oppose the expansion of this plant. The protests against this plant were peaceful throughout and whatever legal or departmental action against the wrongdoings of this plant was the result of this peaceful protest,” said Gauthaman.

The report has also pointed out the abnormal interest shown by certain political groups and religious groups in retaining the services of an official of the Archaeological Survey of India  at Keezhadi in Sivaganga District for an ongoing excavation work and also the attempts by most of the Dravidian and Left parties in charging the Centre for alleged attempt to impose Hindi and Sanskrit over Tamil Nadu while there was no such move. The Church-sponsored agitations held in Kanyakumari and Tirunelveli districts in the aftermath of the Okhi cyclones have been listed in the report as part of anti-national initiatives. “The rescue and relief operations held by the Union Government post-Okhi cyclone has been of an exemplary standard but the dominant religious community in the region waged an undeclared war against the government by spreading falsehoods,” says the report which also lists the names of NGOs, individuals, and organisations which are working round-the-clock promoting separatism and Tamil Nation cause.

Two prominent figures quoted by the VSRC team are Gaspar and Mohan Lazarus, the former a Catholic priest while the latter is an evangelist. While Gaspar is a close associate of DMK’s K. Kanimozhi, party chief M. Karunanidhi’s daughter, Lazarus is the one credited with evangelising hundreds of thousands of people across Tamil Nadu including MDMK leader Vaiko (Y. Gopalaswamy). Lazarus said in a TV interview that it was he who brought Vaiko to the path of Jesus[2]. But Vaiko, with his friends in the media like B. Kolappan of The Hindu got a news published that he does not discriminate between religions[3]. He has been quoted as saying that the news that he had been converted to Christianity has the potential to harm his political career as he fears that Hindus would not vote for him if they come to know his defection to Christianity. Rationalist Vaiko’s wife Renuka is praying in all churches and telling special novenas for the election of her husband from one of the constituencies in the state.

The team has found that three churches in the districts of Thoothukudi, Tirunelveli and Kanyakumari are the hubs of all secessionist and anti-national operations in Tamil Nadu. “What is disturbing is that majority of the MLAs from these three districts are Christians because the Christian community would vote only for candidates propped up by the Church,” said one of the team members.

The full VSRC report accessed by Team PGurus is included as an enclosure. Taken aback by the findings of the VSRC, a self-styled  group constituted by the Church by including a group of proactive Christians like M. G. Devasahayam (former IAS officer), Jacob Punnoose (former IPS officer), R. T. Sreekumar (former IPS officer who is credited with sabotaging India’s space research programme by cooking up the spy scandal of 1995), Kalpana Kannabeeran (Maoist), Hari Paranthaman (former judge of Madras High Court and a known Periyariite) and a slew of fishermen leaders (all belonging to the Christian community), has blamed  the police and the Tamil Nadu administration for the rioting and police firing[4]. The report named People’s Inquest, says that public testimonial states that the district administration and police attacked and molested the rioters at the instance of the Sterlite Copper Management. Devasahayam, a known Hindu baiter is trying to put the entire blame on the Narendra Modi government for every mishap that has happened in the country since 1947. As expected the report prepared under the tagline People’s Inquest has come a cropper. – PGurus, 16 June 2018

Church behind the Sterlite protests – Lalita Nijhawan

Bro. Mohan C. Lazarus

Lalita NijhawanBrother Mohan C. Lazarus said, without any scientific backing, that Sterlite is a toxic factory. He said that the Church is praying to shut down the factory. He further stated that a protest will be held in Tuticorin, where all Catholics, Pentecostals, Church of South India (CSI) would unite to participate against Sterlite. – Lalita Nijhawan

The coverage by the national media of the protests in Tuticorin, Tamil Nadu, against Vedanta’s copper smelting plant has been injudicious, based on hearsay and without application of mind. A narrative has been parroted without critical examination.

It is true that protestors were killed in Tuticorin. But unfortunate and tragic as that is, did anyone bother to ask why police had to open fire? These protestors outnumbered the police force by a huge number at the collectorate; they assaulted police personnel physically, pelted them with stones, tore the clothes of female law enforcers and molested them, indulged in wanton acts of arson including setting fire to public property and indulged in an orgy of violence that threatened the safety of innocent people. Should it not be asked what forces were behind this extremely violent protest which is against every democratic norm? Was the protest sponsored or did it occur spontaneously? Who allowed the assault on police personnel and the burning of vehicles, buildings, ambulances and even setting the collectorate ablaze? Who made Tuticorin a battleground? Is death the only indicator of violence? Have we stopped condemning violence unless it results in deaths? Since when have we started celebrating protests indulge in acts of violence and destruction?

It is the absence of these questions being asked that the Opposition, led by the Congress and Communists, were quick to blame without any basis whatsoever the Narendra Modi-led Central Government rather than lay the responsibility for both the protests and the deaths of protestors in police firing at the door of the Tamil Nadu State Government which is in charge of law and order. But facts are of no consequence for those Opposition leaders who took to make wild, defamatory charges against Modi calling him a “murderer”. But then that is par for the course for the conspirators who pushed the Tuticorin protests into violence as it helped them in their goal of slinging mud at the Modi regime. Another motive could well have been to ensure the closure of the Sterlite copper smelting plant. But has anyone rationally thought about the negative effects of closing the plant? Is anyone worried about how this will affect our country’s economy and the thousands of employees who will be laid off?

The most provocative statement on the situation came from Congress chief Rahul Gandhi. Apropos of nothing in particular, he blamed the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) for the Tuticorin row, keeping in tune with his politics which begins and ends with RSS-baiting. When journalist Gauri Lankesh was murdered, Gandhi accused the Sangh of being behind the killing within half-an-hour of the shooting. When B.S. Yeddyurappa resigned as the Chief Minister of Karnataka because he couldn’t prove his majority on the floor of the House, Gandhi proclaimed he was supporting the rump JDS to “save the people from the RSS”. Rahul’s anti-Hindu bias is understandable but accusing the Sangh of being a terrorist organization is beyond the pale. In fact, the Congress-Communist cabal by baseless charges against the RSS instead of engaging in an ideological debate has ensured that the Sangh has come to represent Hindu sentiment nationwide. As a corollary, opposition to the RSS is considered ‘opposition to communalism’ and support of Islamic and Christian communalism and is termed ‘secularism’ by this cabal.

In the Tuticorin case, however, there seems to be more to it than just the reflexive blame-the-Sangh approach; a concerted attempt by the Church in those parts, supported by Gandhi and the so-called secular media, to drag the Sangh into the row is evident. The districts of Tirunelveli, Tuticorin and Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu have the highest number of Christians and the Church has great influence on the public. It is not a coincidence that in the last two decades these districts have faced the greatest opposition to national development projects.

The Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project in Tirunelveli, which was developed in collaboration with Russia, also saw a lot of protests. America’s disdain for this project was quite evident. The then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh publicly blamed US-funded institutions for the protests against Kudankulam. The then Union Minister V. Narayanasamy alleged that Bishop Yavon Ambrose of Tuticorin received Rs 54 crore and was the key figure behind the protests. Many Christian institutions such as People’s Education for Action and Liberation, and Good Vision were on the Union Home Ministry’s radar as instigators. The Home Secretary had announced that bank accounts of four such NGOs were sealed, as money was transferred from overseas to fund national protests and incite disruption.

The Christian population in Tuticorin is close to 30 per cent and the Church has a deep impact on residents’ everyday life. The plan to expand the Sterlite copper plant was brought forward as a new addition to the scope of already ongoing disputes. Before the Sterlite plant was closed, it was producing four lakh tons of copper annually. Under the proposed expansion, which would have happened if not for the violent protests and subsequent deaths in police firing, Sterlite would have produced eight lakh tons of copper annually. If this project had gone through, almost all of India’s copper needs would have been met domestically.

According to official police reports, the Tuticorin protest has a clear foreign influence. Samarendra Das of the Foil Vedanta Group flew in from London and secretly met Sterlite protesters and assured them that he would fully support the continuation of the protests, according to police. Is it a coincidence that after the Tuticorin violence John McDonnell, a prominent leader of the Opposition Labour Party in the UK, declared that Vedanta is a rogue company and demanded it be removed from the London Stock Exchange? The discussions regarding Sterlite were used to instigate the locals of Tuticorin. Brother Mohan C. Lazarus on a YouTube video said, without any scientific backing, that Sterlite is a toxic factory. He said that the Church is praying to shut down the factory. He further stated that a protest will be held on 24 March, 2018, at Rajaji Park in Tuticorin, where all Catholics, Pentecostals, Church of South India (CSI) would unite to participate against Sterlite. Scientists of the National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI) and the National Green Tribunal (NGT) had visited Sterlite and certified that emissions were within prescribed limits. Then what have these Churches achieved by provoking people against Sterlite, claiming that pollution levels are extremely hazardous? The Kundankulam protests saw the participation of Bishop Yvon Ambroise and S.P. Udayakumar, while the Sterlite protest had Brother Mohan C. Lazarus and other churches in the surrounding area as prime movers. Is the anti-development attitude of the Church not to be questioned? If the Manmohan Singh Government could take action against such disruptive elements then why can’t the Modi Government?

Police were portrayed as villains in Tuticorin. The media narrative was overwhelmingly of trigger-happy cops going berserk; did anyone try to figure out why the police was compelled to take last-resort action? Local journalist N. Rajesh’s report says the Deputy Inspector General of Police Kapil Kumar Saratkar made elaborate arrangements at the protest venue so that activists would not reach the collectorate. Even when senior police officers were talking to protest leaders and asking them to ensure a peaceful demonstration, radical activists broke the barricades and used iron pieces from them to assault police personnel. Police responded with a lathi charge. Rajesh’s report says he and some other journalists climbed to the rooftop of a hotel opposite the collectorate to get a better sense of what was going down. At 11:30 am some protesters, who had forced their way into the collectorate, began burning vehicles. When the protestors saw that their photographs were being clicked and videos being recorded, they pelted journalists with stones. When journalists came down from the roof of the hotel some were assaulted and many had their cameras snatched.

The testimony of the collectorate employees supports Rajesh’s reportage. A female employee said that at 11.10 a.m., she was having tea in the canteen with her colleagues; about 20 minutes later they witnessed bruised and battered police personnel being chased by stone-pelting protesters. The employees were scared and didn’t know what to do, so they went back to their office for safety. Then there was a second wave of protesters when an estimated 15,000-20,000 activists entered the collectorate office. They had weapons fashioned from iron rods, glass bottles, petrol bombs and lathis. They set about destroying the office and setting fire to government vehicles. There were about 100 policemen deployed for security who tried to control the protesters and prevent them from entering the collectorate. But the protesters outnumbered the policemen by thousands. They ruthlessly attacked the policemen who ran away in fear of their lives. They then set fire to all collectorate vehicles. The entire office was filled with smoke, suffocating the employees. The protesters didn’t even spare female police personnel. They tore their clothes and molested them. There are hundreds of eye-witnesses to what transpired and they all say the same thing.

Opportunistic politicians and parties who blame police for opening fire need to be more circumspect. Any loss of life is tragic and unfortunate, but what would they have done if faced with a life-threatening situation had they had been stationed at the Sterlite plant and tasked with ensuring its safety? Should violent mobs have been allowed to create havoc and decimate Tuticorin and the copper plant? Should physical assaults on cops and government officials have been allowed? Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad compared those who died in the police firing to the martyrs of Jallianwala Bagh. Azad should be asked if the martyrs of Jallianwala were armed with stones, iron rods, lathis, petrol bombs and glass bottles and whether they chased, assaulted and attempted to kill police officers and commit arson.

The public may have a short memory but they cannot be fooled. Prior to Rahul Gandhi blaming the Sangh, and Ghulam Nabi’s comparison to Jallianwala Bagh, back in 2007 the UPA government led by Manmohan Singh had allowed the extension of the Sterlite plant. The Congress party’s blue-eyed boy and former Home and Finance Minister P. Chidambaram was a Director in Sterlite’s parent company Vedanta before becoming a minister in the UPA government. Blinded by his intense hatred for the Sangh, Rahul Gandhi has also forgotten that law and order is a state subject. There is no BJP government in Tamil Nadu, so why indirectly or directly accuse the RSS?

It is about time that the BJP, the Central Government, and especially the Union Home Ministry learn from this incident. Asking for a report on the incident is not enough. The Home Ministry has failed to investigate the conspiracy, for which it needs to work in collaboration with State Government officials, to bring out the truth. During Manmohan Singh’s regime, there were some attempts to stop radical elements in the Church harming the national interest. What is stopping the Modi Government from following suit? – The Pioneer, 1 June 2018

7 – Tamil Nadu in the grip of Jihad – Thamizhchelvan

Kumarapandian

Journalist “One of the murder suspects, Abdullah, is a recent convert. Another suspect was only 18 years old when he committed the barbaric act. This is a classic example of the poison of terrorism being planted in the minds of youth and children.” — Thamizhchelvan

Would those who commit murder for wearing religious marks spare those who raise their voices for the cause of temples? Posing this question, the documentary presents the gruesome murder of four brothers who attempted to protect the temple in their home town.

Tenkasi, the second largest town in Tirunelveli district, is a ‘municipality’, located close to Courtallam. The town got its name Tenkasi, meaning ‘Kashi of the South’, as it has a Kasi Viswanath Temple. The town was founded by Dyan kings and the temple was built by Parakrama Pandya. Hindus comprise 62% of the population; Muslims are 35% and Christians 3%.

Kumarapandian hailed from a traditional Hindu family. He had five brothers. He was also a member of Hindu Munnani.

Kumarapandian of TenkasiWhen local Muslims wanted to construct a mosque on Viswanathar Temple Street, the government, anticipating trouble and communal problems, refused permission. Ignoring this, however, the Muslims attempted to construct the mosque. Kumarapandian opposed this strongly. Thereafter, he was murdered on 17 December 2006.

Opposing construction of the mosque seems to be a reason for his murder, but there are other reasons also. On the anniversary of the demolition of the Babri Masjid, the Muslims organized a protest demonstration. Although the police had earlier denied permission for the Kumarapandian's wifestatewide protest demonstrations on 6 December, they later yielded and gave sanction to fundamentalist organisations. Kumarapandian opposed this too.

He also attempted to start an ambulance service for the poor, which was not liked by the fundamentalists, as they feared competition to such a service being undertaken by them. “While they hacked him, the jihadis uttered these words openly…. You are creating obstacles in the path of mosque construction and you are buying ambulance to compete with us; saying these very words they attacked him with scythes,” Kumarapandian’s brother Ravi Pandian stated.

Another brother, Sakthi Pandian, points out that those behind the gory murder of Kumarapandian have not been identified so far: “Cases have been registered against three persons, namely, Haneefa, Abdullah and Sayed Sulaiman. However, till date, those behind the murders have not been brought to light”.

What is pathetic is the fact that the murder case has not come for trial in court. Advocate Socrates says, “The case has not come even for the argument stage. Since those involved in the murder of Kumarapandian are also involved in the Bengaluru bomb blast case and are absconding, this case has so Kashi Vishwanath Shiva Temple of Tenkasifar not come to the court for arguments”.

One of the suspects, Abdullah, is a recent convert. Another suspect was only 18 years old when he committed the barbaric act. This is a classic example of the poison of terrorism being planted in the minds of youth and children. Advocate Socrates says, “One of the criminals, who was an accused in this murder, is Murugesan alias Abdullah; he had converted to Islam recently and had committed this murder”.

In the meantime, the police sent the 18-year-old boy to a juvenile home under the Child Welfare Board and the other two were taken in judicial custody. Abdullah and Haneefa petitioned the High Court against polygraph test, brain mapping test and narco analysis test, arguing that such tests are violative of Article 21 of the Indian Constitution and it would amount to testimonial compulsion. But the High Court ordered in favour of the police and dismissed the petition of the accused. Yet, since then, the case has not moved even an inch.

Kumarapandian's motherMeanwhile, tragedy again struck the family of Kumarapandian. His elder brother Sekar and younger brothers, Suresh and Senthil, who continued the agitation against construction of the mosque from where Kumarapandian left it, were also brutally murdered in the busy thoroughfares of Tenkasi. Showing the forlorn mother of the Pandian brothers, the documentary asks, “What is the panacea for the pain and sufferings of this mother, who lost her four sons?”

Sekar’s daughter was studying well and wanted to become a chartered accountant. The documentary asks, “What is the future of this girl who dreams to be a chartered accountant?”

Feeling the absence of her father and his motivation, the girl says with firm resolve, “I like to study for CA and I have told about this to my father too. My father used to encourage me a lot, but now there is none to Sekar Pandian's Son & Daughterdo so. However, I shall strive hard”. Her mother, Sekar’s wife, says, “I somehow borrow money and educate my children”.

When Kumarapandian was murdered, his wife was in an advanced stage of pregnancy. Having lost her four sons and seeing her daughters-in-law and grandchildren suffering, Kumarapandian’s mother says, “We were happy and lived in peace. All these were brought to an abrupt end by them. What can we do? I just draw solace looking at the faces of those surviving”.

Four brothers have sacrificed their precious lives for a public cause. The terrorists who have murdered them have not been punished so far; the case has not come up for trial.

Meanwhile, the fundamentalists persist in their attempt to construct the mosque. Construction materials can reportedly be seen at the site and work is allegedly going on. No tangible action has been taken so far by the authorities.

6 – Tamil Nadu in the grip of Jihad – Thamizhchelvan

Journalist at work“There is a belief amongst the public that the jihadis target only those who are associated with any Hindu organisation. … This belief is a misconception and that even Hindus who do not belong to any Hindu organisation are murdered. The very first murder shown in the documentary is of an ordinary Hindu, a milk vendor, who did not belong to any Hindu body. His only “mistake” was that he remained as a committed religious Hindu.” – Thamizhchelvan

Islamising Tamil NaduIn the end, the pilot documentary titled, “Tamil Nadu in the Grip of Jihad” says that 134 Hindus who opposed the Islamic terrorism and questioned the injustices committed against Hindus have been brutally murdered so far in the State. Out of the 134 murders, 12 murders have been documented in detail in the movie, clearly establishing the growth of fundamentalism in the state and how the Government is found wanting in its investigations.

There is a belief amongst the public that the jihadis target only those who are associated with any Hindu organisation. The documentary proves that this belief is a misconception and that even Hindus who do not belong to any Hindu organisation are murdered. The very first murder shown in the documentary is of an ordinary Hindu, a milk vendor, who did not belong to any Hindu body. His only “mistake” was that he remained as a committed religious Hindu.

B. Suresh KumarAn ordinary milk vendor

On 26 June 2013, on the busy Netaji Road in Madurai, a murderous gang descended upon the shop of one Suresh, a milk vendor by profession. As he tried to escape, Suresh was chased by the gang and repeatedly attacked. He was hacked about 48 times and died at the doorsteps of his shop. The murderers, after ensuring he was dead, walked across the road nonchalantly, wiping their scythe (the murder weapon) with a piece of cloth, as if they were just dusting it.

The entire sequence of the crime was recorded by a closed circuit camera at a nearby place and the same is shown in the documentary. It is a spine chilling clipping!

Suresh was a very religious person. He regularly participated in temple festivals, particularly Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations and the annual festival commemorating the “Alighting of Lord Azhagar in River Vaigai”. He used to organize annadhanam (feeding the community) for devotees who came from various places to attend the festivals, within his capacity. The documentary shows Suresh’s younger brother, Chandrasekhar, saying that Suresh was not at all associated with any Hindu organisations, and that, he just used to feed a few thousand people during those festival occasions.

Describing the present state of affairs in his family, Chandrasekhar says, “My sister-in-law (Suresh’s wife) is laboring as a servant maid for the sake of their children’s education. With the resolve that their children should be taught in the same school where they were admitted to by my brother, she works in houses to make ends meet and is self-reliant. My sister’s husband died of heart attack two years before my brother was killed. She has two children, one aged 2 years and another aged 5 years. Both the children are afflicted with diabetes. My sister, who has been dependent upon my brother since the death of her husband, is crestfallen now”.

Chandrasekhar adds, “Unable to overcome the grievous loss, our parents spend every day in profound sadness. But, the murderers are still happy and fine. No punishment has been meted out to them … we spend our days in mourning! Whenever I see this place, I can feel my brother walking and talking with me. It is very painful. Our near and dear ones, particularly our relatives, fear to even keep in touch with us. Everyone is afraid. No one is willing to help us”.

Sword of Jihad & MayhemCallous police and shoddy investigation

The police added insult to injury when they alleged that Suresh was murdered as a result of an illicit affair. With this allegation the police gave the investigation a different direction and till date could not solve it. They have not even bothered to utilise the recorded clippings provided by the closed circuit cameras placed at nearby places along the busy Netaji Road in Madurai. One wonders why the police did not make full use of this vital evidence to apprehend the murderers immediately after the killing.

More shocking is the fact that the police have not bothered to pay serious attention to the information provided by Chandrasekhar regarding the visit of a few suspicious persons to the same spot where the crime was committed. Chandrasekhar says, “Six months after the cold-blooded murder, 6 Muslims came and inspected the scene of murder. They inspected the spots where all my brother ran for his life. They spied upon the area with more of their friends. Even a couple of weeks ago, 3 persons were standing in front of a shop by name Deepam Labs which is situated just opposite to our milk shop. They were standing there talking to each other for about an hour. When we informed the police, they didn’t pay serious attention to it and asked us to inform them when those persons visit again in future”.

The documentary points to two important scenes by showing footage from the recorded clipping. The first one shows a person accompanying the murderers of Suresh. He arrives at the spot before the murder takes place. After the murder, he vacates the place. He mingles with the crowd and inspects the scene and finally melts into the crowd. Who is this person? Did the police bother to find out?

The second one shows an auto arriving and stopping at the scene of crime, moments before it was committed; the auto driver alights before the murder was committed and drives away from the place immediately after the murder. Who is this auto driver? Why did he come? Did the police care to find out?

“No, the police didn’t care at all! For them, this vital video recording seems to be unimportant”, says the documentary.

Panna Ismail, Bilal Malil, Fakruddin, Abu Bakkar SiddiquiConfession by jihadis

Two months after the murder, police arrested two persons, M. Abdullah and Thoufiq Ali, from Nelpettai. Both confessed to have murdered Suresh with the help of Police Fakrudeen, Bilal Malik and Panna Ismail. However, before arresting the other three jihadis, the police claimed that Abdullah and Thoufiq Ali murdered Suresh as the woman with whom Suresh had an illicit affair was known to Abdullah.

The allegation that Suresh was murdered as a result of an illicit affair with a woman didn’t last long. It turned out to be false with the arrest of Bilal Malik and Panna Ismail, who were apprehended from their hideout in Puthur at AP-TN border on 5 October 2013, based on information provided by their accomplice Police Fakrudeen, who was arrested a day earlier on 4 October in Chennai.

During interrogation, they reportedly confessed that they have targeted Boothappan, state vice president of Hindu Munnani; Solai Kannan, district president of Hindu Makkal Katchi; Surendran, state vice president of BJP; and Thoodhai Selvam, state president of Shiv Sena, all belonging to Madurai. They confessed that they murdered Suresh as they could not identify and spot any of the targeted men on the said day. They have reportedly confessed that they had committed the heinous act as it was their religious duty to wage jihad against all those who are against Islam. They have also alleged that they were ordered to commit this murder by their leader, Amir.

Also, while Police Fakrudeen and Bilal Malik were taken to the crime scene, they reportedly told the police that they had killed Suresh as they were irritated by the bright religious marks he sported on his forehead. These two jihadis were also allegedly involved in placing pipe bombs along BJP leader Advani’s Yatra route in 2011.

Tamil Nadu PoliceWho will answer?

It must be noted that these terrorists murdered Vellaiyappan, Hindu Munnani leader, on 1 July 2013 in Vellore and BJP leader Auditor Ramesh on 19 July 2013 in Salem. Had the police acted with alacrity and apprehended the terrorists immediately after the murder of Suresh on 26 June 2013, they could have saved two precious lives.

Instead, the Tamil Nadu police have always remained clueless about the rise of Islamic terrorism and movements of jihadis. They went to the extent of casting aspersions on the character of the victims by alleging that they were murdered due to illicit affairs, property disputes, money laundering, etc. It is not clear if the police have adduced such reasons on their own or under instructions from the government which bends to appease the minority community.

The documentary asks if the attitude of the police and government is so callous, what kind of investigation can one expect from them and will protection be given to those hapless families which have lost their breadwinners?

Hawala Cash : Police recover currency notes worth rupees 25 cr from a car that was hit by a bus near Coimbatore in January 2015

Journalist at work“So far, 134 Hindus who opposed terrorism and questioned the injustices committed against Hindus have been brutally murdered in Tamil Nadu. The exclusive documentary on the Jihadi murders clearly establishes the growth of Islamic terror in the state and how the government is found wanting in its investigations.” – Thamizhchelvan

Tamil Nadu Thowheed JamathIslamising Tamil Nadu, an organisation termed as a pan-Indian body with lakhs of members by none other than the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, gave a call for a “Battle of Badr” on 28 July 2015. The Egypt-Israel War, Kargil War and the Taliban Offensive were all termed as “Badr Wars” or “Battles of Badr”. The organisation openly called for planned violence, asking men and youth to take part in it while the women, elderly and children were asked not to partake in it.

Jainulabdheen of Thowheed Jamath dared the police, “We are 50 lakh people; you are only 20,000. If we hit the streets what is that you can do?” They put up posters publicly threatening to murder or give qurbani of those who oppose them.

In Tamil Nadu, supposed to be a haven of peace, fundamentalists seem to decide who should canvas votes, how they should go about it and from where they should do it.  As per their wishes, the Tamil Nadu police have declared that Muslim-dominated areas are not to be ‘trespassed’ by election campaigners. The documentary establishes this with reports on a couple of instances.

The media is put under immense pressure through threats and demonstrations. It should not publish news which is not liked by the fundamentalists. If at all such news is published, the concerned media houses would be threatened and attacked. There are instances of media houses tendering unconditional apologies to Islamic organisations after attacks on them and huge protest demonstrations against them. As a result, the media either refrains from or is very guarded in publishing news about fundamentalist activities.

In many areas of the State, the Jamaths reign supreme. Even the police and government machineries are guarded in their approach towards them. The Arabian-style punishment of stoning to death was rehashed Flag of Indiain Palayamkottai of Thirunelveli district in the year 2007, and a woman killed. In another instance, the poor father of one Thiruvarutchelvan, who was murdered by fundamentalists, had to approach Tamil Nadu Thowheed Jamath for justice for his son’s death.

Anti-national acts

The documentary shows some of the anti-national acts of fundamentalists with evidences. When Hindus led by the organisation Hindu Munnani, organised for hoisting the national flag on Republic Day in 2014 in a public ground, the Villupuram police yielded to the demand of fundamentalists and issued an order banning the celebration under Section 30(2) of TN Police Act.

In Parangipettai, fundamentalists instructed minority students not to participate and sing the national song Vande Mataram during the Independence Day celebrations organised in the local school. The students refused to sing it.

Whenever the Pakistan team wins against the Indian team in cricket matches, the victory of Pakistan is celebrated. In tournaments where Pakistan is knocked out, they celebrate if India is defeated by other teams by bursting crackers.

They put up posters and graffiti supporting Pakistan-aided terrorists like Yakub Memon and Afzal Guru. They were termed as “innocents”.

As an insult to one of the great sons of India, former President Dr. Abdul Kalam, they advised their community, through social networking sites, not to pray for him when he suddenly passed away.

P. Jainulabdeen founded Tamil Nadu Thowheed Jamath in 2004Breeding ground for terror

Terrorism is planted in the minds of youth through social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, etc. These sites were used to the optimum level to create the Ambur riots in June 2015. They are also used to recruit youth for the international terrorist organisation Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Youth are leaving from Tamil Nadu for countries like Syria and Iraq.

Fundamentalists run training centers across Tamil Nadu to perpetrate terrorist activities. People are even converted and trained here. The converts are sent to training centers called “Arivagam” (meaning ‘House of Intelligence’). Many converts are involved in fundamentalist activities, some are used for terror acts, some are juvenile boys.

In order to carry out these terror activities without any hindrances, fundamentalists capture fields of activities like communication and transport. Shops have been taken on auction in most of the railway stations and strategic railway junctions. Most railway canteens are also run by them. There are reports of involvement in hawala activities, indirectly helping terror.

On 7 January 2015, a vehicle belonging to one Mustafa met with an accident near Madukarai in Coimbatore, as a result of which cash worth Rs.2.45 crore was strewn all over the road. The vehicle owner runs a railway canteen in Erode Railway Junction. The money was allegedly being taken to Mallappuram district in Kerala.

In another incident, when police rescued children who were being taken to Kerala by traffickers at Katpadi Railway Station, some Muslims intervened and released the children from the police and sent them to Kerala. Here too, the railway canteen is run by them.

The documentary explains in detail how the important fields of communication, transport and trades are dominated by the community in a planned manner. It is also dominant in fields such as servicing of cell phones and computers and selling cell phones and computer accessories. The youth use these centers to woo Hindu girls as they can access their phone numbers easily and cultivate ties with them.

They are equally active in the rail and air ticket booking businesses, and have increased their hold over meat shops, tea shops, juice shops, etc., which function during night hours in cities and metros. It is common to see their groups roaming in the middle of the night in major cities of Tamil Nadu. In metros like Chennai, boarding and lodging facilities popularly known as “mansions” are predominantly run by members of the community.

They are systematically entering trade and labour unions such as auto drivers unions, taxi drivers unions, porters unions, etc., which are well-connected with the field of transport. Fearing high handedness, the police refrain from initiating any action against these trade unions. Due to this attitude of the police, other groups join the unions, for security.

Sikkal MosqueMosques

Besides being places of worship, the fundamentalist organisations seem to use mosques for other purposes also. New mosques are coming up on highways and main arterial roads, to bring the entire state under their control. They are totally disproportionate to the population of the community.

The East Coast Road from Chennai to Kanyakumari has come under the total control of fundamentalists in this manner. The minarets of mosques along this coast have become structures for sending signals to vessels in deep seas. Ladders are attached with these minarets, to facilitate climbing. As this coastal area is close to Sri Lanka, it aids Pakistani spies and agents who operate from Sri Lanka to infiltrate and smuggle weapons inside our country.

Most of the time, the police do not man the check posts along this road. Even when present, they do not check the vehicles. As a corollary, the fundamentalists have started dominating the marine trade of fish trawling, vending and fish exports in order to capture this coast.

In similar fashion, the fundamentalists have started constructing mosques at a distance of every 60 to 80 kilometers on Chennai-Thirunelveli Highway. They facilitate a planned increase of settlement of their community along the roads which connect to the Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal. Similar settlements are coming up on the highways connecting Karnataka.

Dindigal is a strategically important town in providing this connectivity, and settlements around Dindigal are rising along with a number of fundamentalist organisations. These strategically important thoroughfares have been converted as forts and fortresses of the community, making it impossible for government and non-Muslims to enter.

Inside, required infrastructures are constructed to facilitate infiltration of foreign nationals, leading to increased smuggling and terrorist activities. These include gold smuggling and fake currency rackets.

Terror activities are strengthened as Muslims from Bangladesh are settled here. Media reports say that Saudi Arabia has spent Rs 1,700 crore to spread fundamentalism in India. 25,000 clerics have come from Saudi Arabia to give training on Wahhabism and fundamentalism.

A Pakistani army officer publicly accepted in a debate on an Indian private TV channel that Tamil Nadu is on the list of separatism. As if to confirm this, fundamentalists put up posters in support of Pakistani terrorists, spread pro-Pakistan opinions and held meetings in support of Pakistan. A map released by ISIS once again reconfirms the conspiracy to bring India under its umbrella as “Khurasan”. As national security becomes endangered, the fundamentalists are trying to infiltrate the police as well.

Jayalalithaa BegumNaive appeasement

In this perilous situation, Tamil Nadu government, with the support of main political parties, has made a mindless proclamation offering 3.5% reservations for Muslims in education and employment. While Hindus are charged entry fee to enter temples, subsidy is given for Haj. The Government enjoys the revenue from temples and their assets but provides free rice for the Ramzan feast.

So far, 134 Hindus who opposed terrorism and questioned the injustices committed against Hindus have been brutally murdered in Tamil Nadu. The exclusive documentary on the Jihadi murders clearly establishes the growth of Islamic terror in the state and how the government is found wanting in its investigations.

Murderous attacks have been perpetrated upon many Hindus. Through the post-mortem reports, the documentary establishes the fact that these murders are Jihadi murders. However, on instruction from the authorities, the Police Department labels these murders as results of land and money disputes, thereby offering an easy escape route for the terrorists.

Rama GopalanRamagopalan and his relentless fight  

In this unequal situation, thousands of Hindu youth are fighting to protect this land of Azhwar and Nayanmar saints. Sri Ramagopalan, founder president of Hindu Munnani, has fought relentlessly for the last 70 years, even after being severely assaulted on occasion. He defeated the attempt to convert Hindus in Meenakshipuram, in Thirunelveli district and blocked the government’s attempt to rename Dindigal district as Quaid-E-Millat district. He redeemed the Jalakandeswarar Temple in Vellore.

Sri Ramagopalan nixed Christian attempts to change the name of Kanyakumari district as “Kanni Mary” (Kanya = Kanni) district, and brought back many Hindus to their mother faith, Hinduism. He recreated the Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations as a commemoration of Hindu resurgence at all the places where murtis of Sri Ganesha were broken and celebrations stopped.

Standing up boldly against religious conversions, he combatted the deceitful atheist propaganda against Hinduism by the Dravidar Kazhagam and other Dravidian parties. Speaking to this writer, Sri Ramagopalan said,

“Countless incidents like these have happened across Tamil Nadu. We have documented some of them with authentic evidences and come out with documentaries of three DVDs. Please watch them with patience. Please spread the news about the danger awaiting Hindus and the perilous state of Tamil Nadu to every nook and corner of the world/country. We are sure that this Islamic Terrorism would have affected you in some way. Instead of being you and me, let us unite as one and jointly fight this evil.

Let us save Tamil Nadu and prevent it from becoming Taliban Nadu.”

Chennai Floods: Modi mocked and ‘Amma’ missing in action during emergency – Malay Mail

Chennai Floods 2015

Chennai Floods 2015

Chennai Floods 2015Modi became the object of mockery on social media after his press office released a doctored photo of him inspecting flood damage. For both him and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa Jayaram, the image of strong leadership created by their publicity machines was undermined. – Reuters

One of India’s most powerful politicians, a former movie star called “Amma” or “Mother” by her followers, is being heckled and abused for going missing in action after floods swept the capital of the southern state of Tamil Nadu, which she rules.

It’s a salutary lesson for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who at first drew nods of approval when he rushed to Chennai last week, promising to stand by its people in their hour of need.

Yet, within hours, Modi became the object of mockery on social media after his press office released a doctored photo of him inspecting flood damage.

For both him and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa Jayaram, the image of strong leadership created by their publicity machines was undermined.

Until the floods that ravaged the city of six million, the lofty remoteness of Jayalalithaa added to the aura around a leader with an almost hysterical following. Devotees of the 1960s screen idol have immolated themselves in her defence in the past.

Now, she faces a backlash from residents fed up with the sight of her image on billboards, aid packets and her own Jaya Plus TV channel. She has been seen in public only twice during the crisis—once with Modi.

Angry youths heckled a state minister and officials in Jayalalithaa’s north Chennai’s constituency, where people were sitting on the roadside amid sludge and mountains of garbage, their shanties swept away by the worst rains in a century.

“Forget about Amma coming here, there was no sign of the party cadres,” said one of them, called Dorairaj.

Chennai Floods 2015About 280 people have died across Tamil Nadu since torrential rains on December 1 submerged tracts of Chennai under up to eight feet (2.5 metres) of water, trapping people on rooftops with no communication.

There was further revulsion after a party legislator put up a poster of Jayalalithaa lifting a baby above the floodwaters, in a scene from a blockbuster movie. “Adding salt to the wounds,” said one Twitter post.

Avadi Kumar, a spokesman of her ruling AIADMK party, said there was anger among the people but the administration was doing all it could to bring relief: “It is impossible to reach all areas immediately or be present everywhere at all times.”

Good days

Modi’s own promise to voters of good days to come for India is also starting to face disenchantment, 18 months into his five-year term, with key reforms stalled by bureaucratic inertia and political gridlock.

Ambitious initiatives, such as a “Clean India” campaign, have made little headway—even as Modi has built up huge followings on social media and addressed enthusiastic diaspora Indians at packed stadiums on his many trips overseas.

“If today he appears to have lost control over his own narrative, it is his own fault,” commentator Tavleen Singh wrote in [the December 6th] Indian Express, urging Modi to hire a professional media team. Modi does not have an official spokesperson.

Jayalalithaa, 67, in the past considered as a possible prime ministerial candidate backed by regional groups, faces an election in Tamil Nadu next year.

Modi’s nationalist party has little presence in Tamil Nadu, a state of 70 million. It would rather the iron-fisted Jayalalithaa stays in power, believing she is more inclined to back his reform agenda in parliament than her rivals.

But there are concerns around her health and that she may have to curtail her campaign.

Earlier this year a higher court acquitted her in a graft case for which she was briefly jailed, which had caused an outpouring of anger from her supporters. Some lay down on roads and tried to persuade bus drivers to go over them.

“She is supposed to be a fantastic administrator. But this time there was no presence of government at all. Ordinary people did all the work that government and police were supposed to do,” said S. Raja, one flood-hit resident of Chennai. — MalayMail Online, 6 December 2015
