Mathai condemns Sangma for cosying up to Modi, RSS

Dr Abraham Mathai

MUMBAI, (Abraham Mathai), 7th July 2012 — Christian community condemns Sangma for cosing up to Narendra Modi and exonerating RSS/VHP. Such lack of integrity and values disqualifies him for the highest office.
It is a rather disturbing and distressing situation for a person of the caliber and stature of P.A. Sangma to stoop so low by compromising his principles to warm up to Narendra Modi the main perpetrator of the 2002 Gujarat genocide in lieu of his support for his candidature for Presidency.
To add insult to injury, last week he absolved and exonerated the VHP/RSS from the Orissa pogroms of 2008 where Catholic priests were killed brutally, nuns raped before being murdered and burned, Church property destroyed and vandalized. Does this suggest that Sangma is undergoing a spell of amnesia which has conveniently obliterated from his mind these horrendous accounts that shocked civilized humanity to the core?
Such acts are a total betrayal to the very principles and tenets of Christianity and a severe and degrading insult to the martyrs who have laid down their very dear lives for the faith in Christ.
Cosing up to Modi is a clear sign that Sangma has lost his moral bearing hence entrusting him with the Presidency which is the highest office in the land is absolutely dangerous as he is proving to be a person who cannot be relied upon as a last resort in times of crisis.
The BJP has specialized in the art of tokenism whereby the victim minority is often rewarded with the Presidency after a pogrom…. a Muslim Abdul Kalam after 2002 pogrom and a Christian Sangma after Orissa and Karnataka attacks.
In view of the above, it is imperative for the Christian community to write to the Pope through his representative in New Delhi to ex communicate Sangma since he has proven that he does not have the community interests at heart but would rather fraternize with the communal elements who are maliciously targeting the community.

  1. Not worth wasting time and energy to get Sangma ex-communicated… By his words and deeds he has already cut himself off from the Christian community… as an erring prodigal, Christians must now be prepared to receive him back when he comes seeking forgiveness as he did with Madam Sonia….

    ‘Tum Mujhe Saath Do, Mein Tumhe Vikas Dunga’: Narendra Modi

    Guys, why this hatred towards Modi from the Christian community? Modi is only providing good governance in Gujarat. And there are scores of people who want him to provide the same to the entire country. Our country! He is only asking for 5 years in power. If you don’t like his governance don’t vote for him again in 2019. Simple! Requesting you not to have unnecessary hatred towards Modi. Lets look towards the future.

    The above para stands if you don’t have any undue love towards “Madam ‘Italian’ Sonia” / “Rahul ‘Dumb’ Baba” and if you are ready to look towards options for betterment of all Indians. CONgress had over 50 years including the last 10. Let give Modi atleast 5.

    And if there is violence towards any minority community, I promise to not vote for him in 2019!

      Well if you have so much aversion for Rahul Or Sonia its your choice no one is asking you to love them but to pin hopes on Modi for deliverance would be too foolish and naive. The whole world knows the truth.

      Good luck to you. God bless.

    What does ‘A drowning man do but clutch at a straw’

    A piece of straw would not help to keep a drowning person afloat, but – if you are drowning – you would grab at anything, however hopeless, in your efforts to stay alive. When in trouble, a person will take any chances available to get out of trouble – even ‘chances’ with no hope of success. That is what exactly P A Sangma is doing in this frantic moment of his hunger for power, “cosing up” to Gujarat CM Narendra Modi and exonerating RSS/VHP from the Odisha anti-Christian “pogroms” of 2008.
    But Abraham Mathai’s statement “… it is imperative for the Christian community to write to the Pope through his representative in New Delhi to excommunicate Sangma since he has proven that he does not have the community interests at heart but would rather fraternize with the communal elements who are maliciously targeting the community,” does not hold water. It does not in any way reflect the teaching of Christ. Christ never taught us “Tooth for a tooth and eye for an eye”. Ostracizing him would not reflect the teaching of Christ.

    religion and politics must not be combined. a good leader and a good priest and human being never cares and divide the people no the basis of religion and caste but respect as well as loves and help all humans.
