Are Hindus under siege in Andhra? It appears so…
Video evidence emerging from Chirala, Guntur district shows Shiva Shakti members being physically attacked by a group of approximately 300 Christians. The videos clearly show the attackers identifying themselves and crowing that they are proud of what they did. If the recalcitrant Police of Andhra Pradesh needs any proof of misbehavior, it is provided in this post, in Black and White.
For a long time, Christian Missionaries have been actively involved in religious conversions in the Guntur District. Though many have converted to Christianity, officially they remain Hindu. This is clear breach of law especially for those who are classified as Scheduled Caste as the Indian Constitution mandates that those belonging to Scheduled Castes lose their reservation status when they convert to Christianity.
The incident took place while members of ShivaShakthi.org (Aadhyaatma Chaitanya Vedika), were attending a meeting in Chirala, Guntur Dist. They were carrying books written by Karunakar Sugguna, one of the founders of Shiva Shakti. Members of the Christian community took offence and condemned the Shiva Shakti members for having those books and started beating them. They also accused that Shiva Shakti members belonged to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). Despite the assault being committed by the Christian group, the Police department, allegedly under political pressure, has filed cases against the Shiva Shakti members.
It is ironic that Missionaries can give Bible to Hindus and their children, but Hindus cannot give the Bhagavad Gita to Christians, and if any Hindu attempts to do so, he is likely to be penalised and attacked. Do fundamental rights apply only to the minorities? In the view of Left-Liberals and Chrislamists, Hindus are deemed to not have any right to protect themselves. If they do so, they are projected as communal. Such a case does not apply to any other religious group. In recent years there has been a huge outcry across some western countries that Christians are being persecuted in India. Even Barack Obama lectured Hindus about being tolerant towards India’s minorities, doubtless egged on by the powerful Christian voter bloc. How ironic that the westerners are being brainwashed with the false allegations against Hindus when the reality is that it is the Hindus who are getting persecuted in India by the Christians and Muslims. The incident in Chirala is one such example.
Karunakar Sugguna, Kalyan Chatlapally, Rishin Vijay, Bhaskar Killi along with few others established Shiva Shakti. Karunakar in the past has debated many a Christian Pastor on the Bible and its contents. He wrote two books, “The Real character of Bible God” and “The Other side of Jesus”. In these books, he highlighted many faults in the bible verses and questioned the missionaries for misleading people by providing wrong information on moral values. These books were a sensational hit and thousands of people started following Karunakar’s views. The common public read these books and started questioning missionaries and Christians, this slowed down the proselytization of Hindus in some districts of Andhra. In a very short span of time, Shiva Shakti became very active on Social Media, and they started engaging many pastors and missionaries.
It is learnt that members of Shiva Shakti have been receiving threats from different Christian groups. Karunakar even received several threats to his life. The incident in Chirala seems to be pre-planned and it is a shame that the State Administration and the Police are trying to implicate Shiva Shakti members under communal laws. In one of the videos, we see a person claiming to be Christian and openly crowing that he physically abused Shiva Shakti members, and saying he would have killed them if he had the chance. In another video, someone else is saying that they belong to SC (Mala) caste, and the other person is saying he is Christian. These two-people recorded the video while they were sitting in a police car.
This is an excellent example how some of the misguided elements claiming to be from SC/ ST are abusing the law. Chandra Babu Naidu’s administration has already started minority appeasement politics in Andhra Pradesh. Members of Telugu Desam Party are pandering to minority vote banks by harassing the majority and foisting false cases. It is time, the Center took cognizance of this or 2019 elections will be a polarized polemic of obscenities and imaginary threats to minorities.
