Bloody Hell! Its 1984 And 2002 All Over Again!

Recommended Posts

I had decided not to post any more news about how vanity is prevailing in Orissa, but sorry to YET AGAIN bore all of you with some more unpleasant truth about how humanity is getting raped in the land which was once known as the land of saints. Some of the parts in bold and underline remind me of 1984 and 2002.


Rajani Majhi, a 20-year-old Hindu, was gangraped before being burnt alive by a mob at the church-run orphanage in Orissa's Bargarh district where she worked, says a senior priest. They mistook her for a Christian.

"I am willing to testify in any court of law," T V Peter, procurator of the Sambalpur diocese in the western part of the state, said. The incident took place on August 25 as anti-Christian violence engulfed the state.

"Some policemen and locals were witness to the atrocities by a mob led by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and the Bajrang Dal at the orphanage in Padampur village in Bargarh district. I went to the spot immediately afterwards and spoke to the witnesses. The mob thought she was a Christian girl but actually she was a Hindu and was adopted by a childless couple. She was working in the orphanage," said Peter.

Instead of rescuing the victims, the policemen remained mute spectators, alleged the priest.

Rajani was a student in Padampur Women's College and worked at the orphanage to finance her education. The orphanage, which was set ablaze by the mob, was meant for children of leprosy patients.

"Almost two years back, she joined the orphanage run by Jesuit priest Father Edward Secuira of our diocese to continue her studies," said Peter.

He related the sequence of events that started around 1.30 pm when Secuira was resting in an ante-room, adjacent to the boys' hostel in the orphanage.

"A group of attackers kept banging on his door. When he opened it, he was immediately dragged to the courtyard and brutally beaten up. Seeing Father Secuira being hit, Rajani and some children from the orphanage began running for their lives. But the mob did not let Rajani escape and gangraped her," Peter said.

"By that time, Father Secuira was locked in his room. All he could hear was Rajni's plaintive cries, 'Save me Father, I am spoilt now. They are going to kill me'," Peter recalled.

The mob left two hours after Rajani had been burnt to death. Secuira's bed had also been set ablaze by the mob, Peter said.

Asked what he planned to do now, Peter repeated his offer to testify in court, as "not many were likely to come forward to testify against the murderous mob especially in the present circumstances when the atmosphere is vitiated".

"The people are still being persecuted. We don't have any trust in the government," he added. Anti-Christian violence flared up in Orissa after the murder of VHP leader Laxmanananda Saraswati in the state's Kandhamal district Aug 23. The violence continues today, with extreme Hindu groups blaming Christians for the death, a charge the Christians have denied repeatedly.

Rajani's gangrape and murder came on the same day as a 28-year-old nun was gang-raped in Kandhamal district and a priest who tried to save her was beaten up and doused with kerosene before both were paraded naked, while a dozen policemen watched. Only on Friday did the state government order a probe into this incident, over a month after the nun gave her complaint in writing.

Even writers like Khushwant Singh now state that resurgent Hindu Militancy started in early twentieth century and is on the rise. Ironically, some writers who used to blast Sikhs for eighties, and drag Sikhs into every violent incident even those by Hindus in Orissa, are only saying "how bad it is" or "how Hindu reputation has suffered". Words like fanatics, murderers, carnage, genocide, militancy, organised violence, extremism are missing from their vocablry now. Is a certain vir sanghvi listening?

    • https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-58996186 Vikings had a settlement in North America exactly one thousand years ago, centuries before Christopher Columbus arrived in the Americas, a study says.     IMAGE SOURCE,GETTY IMAGES Image caption,Replica Viking homes and other items at L'Anse aux Meadows, a Unesco world heritage site in N Scientists say a new dating technique analysing tree rings has provided evidence that Vikings occupied a site in Newfoundland, Canada, in 1021AD. It has long been known that Europeans reached the Americas before Columbus's arrival in the New World in 1492. But this is the first time researchers have suggested an exact date. Writing in the journal Nature, scientists said they had analysed the tree rings of three pieces of wood cut for the Norse settlement at L'Anse aux Meadows. They said that using an atmospheric radiocarbon signal produced by a dated solar storm as a reference, they were able to pin the "exact felling year of the tree" to 1021. Such a solar storm - a huge blast of radiation from the Sun that hits Earth - was known to have taken place in the year 992AD, the scientists said. This enabled them to determine a more accurate date than previous estimates for the camp of about 1000AD. "The association of these pieces with the Norse is based on detailed research previously conducted by Parks Canada," the study says, adding that there was clear evidence the sampled wood had been modified by metal tools. It adds that the L'Anse aux Meadows camp was a base from which other locations, including regions further south, were explored. The authors say the discovery represents a definitive point for future research into the initial consequences of transatlantic activity, such as the transfer of knowledge and the potential exchange of genetic information and pathologies. Dr Colleen Batey, a Viking specialist associated with the Institute for Northern Studies in Scotland, says the study does not necessarily suggest Vikings were not in the area in 1000AD. "It suggests that the short-lived settlement was active in about 1021 when wood was being worked at the site, probably related to either building or ship repair," she says. "As an archaeologist, I might interpret this as one stage of the occupation activity, not necessarily the first or indeed the last." L'Anse aux Meadows, a Unesco world heritage site on the northernmost tip of the island of Newfoundland, is the first and only known site established by Vikings in North America and the earliest evidence of European settlement in the New World. Radiocarbon dating is a technique that measures residual concentrations of a radioactive isotope of carbon (carbon-14) present in an object. Carbon-14 decays over time and measuring how much is left tells you the age of a sample.  
    • Thank you,  means a lot
    • I think it's different. The other lady just used 'vision' , whilst @jkvlondonis quite educated and well read, basing predictions on life experience.
