Canada- Church officials appeal for investigation- is Canadian money helping to fund Indian Genocide?

(Social Justice South Africa; c.f. Agenzia Fides 23/10/2008)

Article by Marc Aupiais

The defining trait of the Nazi regime, stalinist communism, and most dictatorships- is a deathly nationalism, which bulks at difference, and diversity. This may have something to do with claims that not only India's soul, and heritage are at stake in the allowance of an anti-Christian genocide, but also her democracy.

The Canadian bishops are asking their government to join efforts throughout the world, to somehow pressure the Indian government to do what it was elected to do, implement constitutional, and legal rights- and take some concrete action to prevent the complete wiping out of Christians in the large area of Orissa, and other places where the nationalist violence has spread among Hindu Fundamentalists.

The violence has spread far since it began to be noticed around early September. It is fronted by Hindu Nationalists, who have been converting non-Hindus at weapon's point, and have burnt, or stolen houses, lands, or goods of Christians, who are either chased away, convert, and must prove this through joining violence, or are killed by fundamentalists, or else risk death in hiding- by nature's natural elements, including disease, in the Indian jungles.

The bishops are asking for investigations by the Canadian government, into whether or not Canadian money is making its way into the hands of those promoting the genocide in India. The mass slaughter of Christians in India, has been harshly condemned by leaders of all major religions in the area, and by Pope Benedict XVI.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), representing many Hindu voters in India- recently tried to prevent international declarations which would help stop the violence, by calling statements by Holy Father, the current Catholic Pope Benedict XVI- unnecessary foreign intervention with India's sovereign status. The Indian government has been accused of negligence, and of turning a blind eye to attacks, these accusations are made by Christians on the ground, who claim that it would be impossible for personnel stationed in areas, to have not seen the vast mobs carrying out attacks.

The thousands upon thousands adversely affected in this recent outburst of decades of anti-Christian vendettas, suggested to be carried out, in sermons by the teachers of the fundamentalists, has finally manifested all the symptoms required to be genocide, since September.
