When the news of rape of a Catholic nun was reported during the Kandhamal violence all hell broke out. National dailies and TV channels went to town accusing Hindu”extremists” or Hindu Taliban for the alleged crime. The noise and protests the incident raised have not yet died down. Drop of a hat, the Hindu groups are blamed and asked for stringent punishment against them.

But here’s a report from Thiruchirapalli.


No Christian groups nor leaders have raised a little finger about it. People like my friend John Dayal are intriguingly silent. And there are attempts to term the henious crime as a mere conspiracy to tarnish image of ‘the dalit’ Christian principal by an upper caste ‘nun’. The Catholic church and the Jesuit priests are notorious for pushing such notorious incidents under carpet. But, can you be silent about it? Silence is violence.

Speak: your lips are free
Speak: your tongue is still yours
Speak: this lissome body is yours
Speak: this life is yours
Speak: so that the truth can prevail ….

The secular brigade, which works itself up into just the right kind of outrage after every such crimes, could do with soul-searching on the allied issues.

But can you afford to shut your ears to the Trichi nun’s cry for justice?
