Evangelist’s strategy to encircle Sabarimala?

via Mahadev published on October 31, 2005

 


  


The present trend of the Kerala-based evangelist organizations to purchase rubber and tea estates from corporate plantation companies on the way to the famous forest shrine, Sree Ayyappa Temple at Sabarimala, might turn out to be their latest strategy aimed at developing a centre here for proselytizing the poor people besides launching anti Sabarimala campaigns among millions of pilgrims trekking to the hill shrine from various states of India.


 


One of the Evangelist organizations headquartered at Manjadi near Tiruvalla in Kerala,Gospel for Asia (GFA), has bought 2,300 acres of rubber plantation, Erumely estate, from the Harrisons Malayalam Limited (HML) a major plantation company in the country, recently for Rs63 crore. Erumely is an important town en route the traditional trekking path to Sabarimala, because of the presence of the Lord Ayyappa temple there and various festivities held during the pilgrimage season.


 


Now the GFA is said to be planning to offer 500 acres of land free of cost to the Indian government for setting up some major development projects with its budgetary support under rural development schemes. The strategy has two prongs. First the presence of GFA in the area would get an acceptance of the Indian government as an establishment engaged in rural development and uplift of the poor. Secondly,all the infrastructure required for development of the remaining portion of the land would be there in place without any investment. So that the entire funds this organization receives every year from overseas could be utilized for converting the poor people mainly the tribals in the adjoining forests also using the indirect support of the government: How shrewd the idea is, which most of the intellectually slaved Hindus lack. “Two birds in one shot !”    


 


The head of GFA, Mr K P Yohannan is well known world over for his proselytizing ability among the poor and people in distress even during natural calamities such as the recent T’sunami. As the Central and state governments are run by the Congress and the Communists, both committed pseudo-secularists and born to appease the minorities, GFA’s operations therefore would receive all the blessings from Delhi and Thiruvnanthapuram.


 


It is understood that GFA is also negotiating to buy another large rubber plantation, “the Laha estate” in Pathanamthitta district. A considerable stretch of the main road leading to Pampa from Pathanamthitta is through this estate. If this deal is also struck then the main thoroughfare leading to Pampa from Pathanamthitta via Laha would also be passing through the GFA’s territory. Thus, the two main routes to Sabarimala, by which millions of pilgrims travel during the 2-month pilgrimage season, are through these estates. Mr Yohannan who receives huge funds from abroad for conversion activities would have no dearth of funds for buying estates around the Lord Ayyappa’s Poonkavanam. According to reports his GFA was on top of the recipients of foreign funds with $12 million in 2000-01. In that year 1,474 organizations in Kerala received foreign contributions totaling $75 million of which almost 90 per cent belonged to the Christian community.


 


Given this scenario if the Hindus continued to follow their complaisance and sing to the tune of the pseudo-secular politicians, the day will come pilgrims will have to pay toll to the GFA and seek permission to travel to Pampa.

    If the Evangelists try such tricks,Hindus should lose no time in grouping together and drive them away from there.We have the numbers on our side,remember that.What we need to cultivate is unity.Make them run for their lives like they had to in J&K,when they went there with their Conversion Agenda! 5

    Hindus should start re conversion programs and highlight the superiority of Hindu faith and culture. Look how the Christians are imitating Hindu temple rituals. Lighting of Hindu lamps is now the favourite past time of the Padres. Look at the surreptitiously creeping Dhwajastambhams and stone lamps in front of Churches. Even their Bible is being called Vedapusthakam ! Desert Gods are accepting names of Hindu goddesses like Amala, Nirmala, Vimala ! Where in the Bible are there such kind of names ? What was once ridiculed is now imitated with gusto. Sayanapradakshinam, was once ridiculed as pagan practice, how is it now being imitated in Mahe Church ? Christian idols are now relishing Hindu delicasies like Payasam ! Christian gods are now mounting caprisoned elephants and romping around to the beats of temple music. Why convert if you have to shamelessly imitate ?
    Let us spread the message RETURN TO YOUR ANCESTRAL RELIGION – SANATANA DHARMA. We are the best. Alien desert religions cannot be a match for Hinduism.

    It is a pitty that we do not have any unity to stop GFA’s activities.

    What our Ayyapa Bhakthas doing on this issue? Is it not possible for any Hindu NRI’s to buy the rubber estates to protect us from the Evangelists?

    This article should be given a very wide publicity to make sure that further activities of the Evangelists are stopped immediately. 5

    christianity is a commercial religion from desert
    christ is not a god but a man sent by god like us-he himself told in bible 32 times before he was crucifed.christianity amended its policy like public ltd co on various half baked theories last
    year like
    – children below 8 years not bapitised before jesus birth and
    put in a state called ”limbo”
    were now elevated to heaven by pope last year in AGM meeting.
    -sinners who believed jesus and
    practiced and committed many sins
    and elevated to ”purgatory”a state of refining the souls before heaven were last year shifted to heaven by pope in AGM
    meeting.
    -pope denied the arrivel of saint thomas to kerala but admitted only came up to west pubjab and gave in writting to a canadian.
    see website -www.hamsa.org
    -recently christianity amended the mode of buriel of dead to cremation- this kills the whole concept of christianity which do not talk of immortal soul and karma and reincornation but believe only in instant birth and
    resurrection of dead bodies to heaven once jesus come in sky on his second coming.when cremated,
    how come christians go to heaven
    with their bodies reduced to ash.
    this amendment is only to help poor converts in india to save cost of space purchase on burial.
    so christianity is nothing but a commercial religion of east indian
    trading co which came to india before 300 years and hence they change trade policy often to suit indian converts. 5
