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

Anti-Sterlite Protesters and Police in Thoothukudi

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

  1. I think the wake up call has come too late. For too long the Christian missionaries have been spreading their tentacles all cover these areas taking advantage of the poverty and ignorance of the people. For long they have tasted success in sabotaging all developmental activities. Now tamilnadu is boiling bcoz of their growing influence. I hope the central gift is able to stop their funding and stop their divisive intentions.
