"Ayyappa Unhappy With Chief Priest"

Newsreport in the Times of India, Bombay Edition. Re-Edited.

KOTTAYAM, April 21: The astrologers (soothsayers & diviners) who participated in the three-day devaprasanam (Seeking the pleasure of the god) at the Sabarimala hill shrine observed that the visit of the temple's melsanthi (chief priest) Vishnu-Narayanan to the Nilackal Ecumenical Church was against the will of the god Ayyappa, the 'presiding deity' and the god was very much dissatisfied with the priest's unusual gesture.

The melsanthi's visit to the church and his reported participation in the service there had become a controversial issue, and the Dewasom (Holy Site) Board which administers the shrine, decided to consult astrologers (soothsayers & diviners) and theologians in this regard.

According to the dictate of the devaprasanam the melsanthi, who violated traditions, should be replaced.

While the god was happy with the action taken by the Dewasom Board against the chief priest, the devaprasanam also revealed that there was no way out for the melsanthi to repent.

The three day devaprasanam concluded on Tuesday and the chief astrologer, Sollapani Warrier, submitted the chart of findings.

The ritual in which reputed astrologers and theologians participated suggested a series of solutions to the aberrations knowingly or unknowingly committed by the temple authorities, devotees and even some priest.

Hindu theology forbids non-Hindus, and among Hindus, the Achut (Untouchable, Polluting) 'low caste' Hindus from worshipping in Hindu temples.

Again, a Hindu, by worshipping in a non-Hindu temple, becomes an apostate and loses his caste position, thus becoming an outcaste.

Again, there is no repentance or reconciliation in Hinduism.

The reason I have transcribed this news-report on the net is to show up the lies of the Hindus.

The Hindus claim that they have no problem, unlike Christians, in inter-communicating with other religions.

But that is not true.

The modern Hindu is a product of the influence of the English and their rule over India. Before the advent of the English, and even during their rule, the Hindu has insisted on his superiority and that a Hindu is forbidden by theological Hinduism from inter-dining, social communications, etc., with members of other castes and sects, claiming that this polluted them. (See also: Dr. Ambedkar on Manu)

The history of British India is largely the history of the British working hard to keep the peace and balance between the various castes and Hindu sects.

That the Hindus are Indifferent today to these questions, therefore, is not because of Hinduism, but despite it!
