B K Somashekar Absolves Govt, BJP, Sangh Parivar; Indicts None


B K Somashekar Absolves Govt, BJP, Sangh Parivar; Indicts None

By Gabriel Vaz
Daijiworld Media Network - Bangalore

Bangalore, Jan 28: The one-man judicial inquiry headed by retired high court judge of Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka, Justice B K Somashekar, has finally come out with its final report on the series of Church attacks and other places of Christian worship in Mangalore, Udupi, Chikmagalur, Bangalore and several other districts in September 2008, failing to indict anybody except vaguely blaming ``misguided fundamentalis miscreants” while completely absolving the BJP government headed by Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa, the ruling party or the Sangh Parivar.

Presenting the final report to the Chief Minister in Vidhana Soudha, unlike the controversial decision of submitting the interim report to the then Additional Chief Secretary, Home Department, Abhijit Dasgupta in Mangalore in February last year, Justice Somashekar categorically declared: "There is no basis to the apprehension of Christian petitioners that the politicians, BJP, mainstream Sangh Parivar and the State Government directly or indirectly, are involved in the attacks.”

But "the impressions and allegations that the present ruling government is showing cold shoulders to the interest of minority Christian community in Karnataka and try to suppress them for the political ends like vote-catching has no basis,” it says without explaining how it reached the conclusion. Surprisingly, another finding says: ``The impressions and allegations that some local leaders and the government did not evince any interest either by local inquiry, spot inspection or by other methods nor tried to console the victims by assuring necessary protection or remedies appear to be reasonable from the point of view of such victims but not totally justified.”

It also mentions that the attacks on churches or places of worship has deeply affected the harmony between the members of Hindu and Christian religions and created suspicion in the minds of each other.  So then who carried out the attacks? Well, the Commission’s findings as revealed in the 10-page synopsis containing some 30 findings and 21 recommendations released to the media make interesting reading: "True Hindus have no role to play in any attack directly or indirectly, but the attacks are indulged in by misguided fundamentalist miscreants of defined or undefined groups or organisations against Christians and Christianity who have mistakenly presumed that they would be protected by the party in power with their policies at the relevant time.”

However, in one of the so-called findings, the retired judge takes shelter under plea made by Christian memorialists in saying rather vaguely: ``The plea of many Christian memorialists for taking action as per law against Mahendra Kumar, the then convenor of Bajarang Dal, who publicly sought to justify the attacks on churches is totally justified.” But the retired judge fails to directly say so. Incidentally, this Mahendra Kumar had recently joined JD(S).

Apart from giving a clean chit to the Yeddyurappa regime, ruling BJP and the Sangh Parivar, Justice Somashekar also gave handsome compliments to the police. ``The police action against the Christian portestors in several incidents were justified,” the commission said while confirming that the police action at St Sebastian Church, Permannur, was ``unexplainably excessive, unreasonable and is in violation of the expected norms prescribed.”

However, Justice Someshekar hastens to support the police and the district administration by unhesitatingly claiming that ``the impression and allegations that the top police officers and the district administration had colluded with the attackers in attacking the churches or places of worship has no merit.”

"The concerned police in all districts did their best and have been successful in nabbing most of such miscreants and large number of charge- sheets have been filed in various courts which have to finally adjudicate their identity and culpability,” it says.

In another para, the retired Judge says: "The failure of the district administration functionaries, including corporation, municipality, electricity board and village panchayat authorities, in protecting the rights of the religious minorities guaranteed under the Constitution and their interference in their activities by misuse of power is evident and apparent, particularly in Bellary and Gulbarga districts --- Their acts of locking the places of worship and preventing the devotees from offering prayers is unprecedented in the history of administrative process and constitutional governance.”

Significantly, the commission castigates the police in another finding. Read the entire finding reproduced here: ``It was imprudent, unreasonable and inexperienced act on the part of the police to enter into the premises of some churches in Dakshina Kannada without following legal requirements amounting to violation of religious interests and human rights protected under the Constitution of India.” But, according to the commission, the ``saving grace is that there is no evidence to conclude that it was motivated or influenced by any other force.”

"The impression created incidentally that due to the alleged excesses of the police during the lathi-charge etc in Dakshina Kannada incidents, the innocent people like children, women were also victimized unjustifiably is true in a few instances noted in the report categorically. The impressions and allegations that the government and the district administration did not treat the Christian protestors sympathetically and with compassion is justified in a few instances noted in the report categorically. The grievance that the compensation awarded in some of the districts is too meagre and scanty or inadequate and even contemptuous or nil and require enchancement is totally justified,” the commission observes in its findings without recommending any action to make amends.

While saying that the attacks against churches and places of Christian worship "are true and definite,” the commission says the ``extent and magnitude of attacks varies from very little to colossal.” Also, it says: "Not all attacks were spontaneous or accidental. Some were deliberate, well-planned communal antagonism with fundamentalism brewing since several years. The events leading to the attacks were many including local groupism, personal, competition in trade, education and political activities.”

"The allegations and impressions given to the members of the Hindu religion that Christians (by whom?) are indulging in mischievous activities by commercializing or inducements etc and by using their literature maligning the Hindu religion, Hindu ancient systems, Hindu sacred beliefs, practices and sentiments appears mostly probable and true at some locations. The allegations and the impression that some persons involved in conversions are getting funds from some sources including foreign countries and misuse it for mass conversions of innocent and helpless members of the society belonging to the weaker sections is true,” says the retired judge without explaining how he reached the conclusion or the so-called finding.

Interestingly, Somashekar holds that the suggestion of the "advocates for the government, police and Hindu memorialists that Christian places of worship should be brought under some legislation like Hindus and Muslims in the country for proper regulation and control within the meaning of Article 25 of the Constitution is well founded and accepted.” Will the BJP government, which hurriedly passed the legislation for banning cow slaughter, go ahead and implement this suggestion too remains to be seen.

Justice Somashekar, who labored for over 28 months and toured almost throughout the State and heard over 1500 petitions, contradicts himself on the issue of conversions by Christians, which was touted as one of the main reasons for the church attacks.

"The issue of conversions and circulation of derogatory literature with insulting attitude against Hindus has been the recurring impressions of large number of Hindu petitioners and is being projected as the reason for attacks,” the commission says and comes out with yet another finding: ``There appears to be no conversions at all by Roman Catholic churches or its members except for routine purposes like marriage or voluntary instances.”

Again, the commission says: ``But there are clear indications of conversions to Christianity in the districts of Bangalore, Kolar, Chikballapur, Bellary, Davangere, Chikmagalur and Udupi by few organisations and self- styled or self-appointed pastors continuing as Hindus by religion for all benefits of law by circumstances and inducements and as a commercial bargain using unaccounted local and funds of the foreign countries but necessarily by compulsion or fraud or coercion but definitely by inducements.”

Can anyone make out what the commission wants to say in this para reproduced in full? Incidentally, the 10-page synopsis is full of such gems of English prose. One wonders what the final report contains! The 10-page prepared synopsis that was released to the press while presenting the final report to the chief minister is full of vague terms and use of words like ``presumed,” ``appears,” ``probable” and ``impressions” several times as in the case of the synopsis released along with the interim report last year. Incidentally, most of the findings of the commission ``appear” to be nothing more than the retired judge’s ``impressions,” a word with which he seems to be quite fond of.

Panel Clears BJP, Hindu Groups in Karnataka Church Attacks 

Bangalore, Jan 28 (DHNS):  The Justice B K Somashekara Commission, appointed by the state government to investigate the church attacks of 2008, has given a 'clean chit' to the BJP, Sangha Parivar and the state government.

“There is no basis to the apprehension of petitioners that politicians, BJP,  Sangha Parivar and the state government are directly or indirectly involved in the attacks”, the commission has said in its final report which was submitted to Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa in Bangalore on Friday.

According to the report -- circulation of derogatory literature with "insulting attitude" against Hindus and issues of conversion were the main reasons behind the attacks.

The commission has stated that the impression and allegation that top police officers and the district administration had colluded with attackers in attacking the churches or places of worship had no merit.

However, the commission has noted that the government and district administration did not treat the Christian protesters sympathetically.

The commission in its 21 recommendations has suggested that the an exclusive police station with specially trained police officers for religious matters in each district should be constituted with special powers to function without the interference of the government.

The commission launched its investigation on October  2008 and held several sittings in Mangalore, Bangalore, Davanagere, and Udupi. It accepted a total of 1,500 petitions and 34 advocates representing various sections of society presented their cases before the commission.

The churches were attacked in the districts of Mangalore, Udupi, Chikamagalur, Kolar, Chikkaballapur, Bellary and Davangere during September 2008.

    Satish Kunder sir, Mangalore/Kuwait why are you bringing sangh parivar into the matter everytime. Do you know anything about Sangh parivar especially RSS. Sir You please go through the website of RSS before commenting. RSS are organizations who have worked during tsunami and natural calamities in our country without making any discripency between caste and religion. Even the people from minority have appreciated the work of RSS. Do you know that thing ??

    Mr.Shivanand Shetty to your kind attention if RSS drove us Christians off from Mangalore RSS ko khane ke vaande hojayenge. I'm afraid RSS too well aware of this truth, for the majority of contribution in the trade that takes place across Mangalore is by the Christians with comparatively less bargain spot payment, which is why the church attacks didn't last long. Furthermore what made Yediyurappa to rush to the Archbishop of Bangalore to render his apologies to the Christian community. It was the huge international pressure mounted upon him.Perhaps everyone forgot the afore said act of the CM which was the very indication that he himself & his monkey troop was more directly than indirectly involved in the church attacks. However for those who think that they could wipe out Christians from Mangalore it would be as if running an axe through their own legs.

    Dear Friends,
    In my personal experience, Hindus are the most peace loving people I have met...Its not the human individual but politicians & fanatics who brainwash them to create friction in society....I have hundreds of Hindu friends who take very active part in decorating the church, making the Gigantic Church cribs for X-mas, chariot decorators as well as chariot pullers for various novena devotions here in Bangalore, and we too as Christians take active part in their festivities....
    Coming to conversion, digest this one: The Christian Missionaries started educational institutions hundreds of years back and a majority of the students who educated themselves here were mostly from religions other than Christianity....So if the missionaries had to convert them then today the present Christian population would have been 60% easily....
    From the RTI Act read the following info:
    According to the National census survey of 1991, the Christian population in India was 2.32% and according to the National census survey of 2008, the Christian population in India is 2.14%...So the Christian population HAS GONE DOWN by 0.18%....If conversions were taking place as claimed the figures should have been higher...It is important to know the facts before making conclusions.....
    Also our great leaders Vajpayeeji, Advaniji and many other RSS cadets were products of Christian institutions.
    So why this hatred.Live and Let Live.Let everyone practice a religion of his or her own choice.
    Jai Hindustan

I don’t believe that New Life people have attacked churches, don’t try to mislead us, we are not fools like you. Mr. Mahendra Kumar himself admitted that they have carried out all this attacks. We trust in God not in evil spirit, we have faith in GOD that he will bring these people to justice, if the court n govt does not do justice, God will do justice with natural calamities that time everyone will suffer. Still I say God forgive them.

    Dear Raj Ullal,

    What comparison you are making?

    Whether throwing animal head just outside the temple is same as ransacking and breaking the idol inside the "Garba Gudi"of Milagres Church?

    I have rightly not commented on such a small matter which happenned just outside the temple as it will not disturb the sanctity of the temple in any way. In the same way Pork meat was thrown near masjid near Ullal. I have not commented on that either.

    Raj Ullal, I am pained by the fact that many of my Hindu brothers are getting mislead by the preachings of Sangh Parivar which is focussed only on political benifits for few powerful Hindus rather than poor and weak Hindus.

    We require another Sri Narayan Guru for social changes in Hindus and unfortunately we do not see such a personality among Hindu leaders today.

    In your words you make me understand as follows:
    The Hindu missionaries converts huge christians in US/France/Germany/Austrlaia etc., should be burned to death or stoned to death because they convert poor christians to Hiduism in a foreign land. And the religion is foreign to them.

    You have not thought that these Hindu missionaries loot a lot of money from these christian countries.

    Kindly note that The christians don't act or think like the Coward Hindu fundamentalists because even if you convert us to Hinduism we preserve in heart the teachings of Jesus Christ, the saviour of the world said Love one another as I Loved you.

Mr. Yeddyurappa was accused his own wife's murder and the case was covered. Is he a suitable/a model person to rule the citizens who was unable to keep his own house in order and what he will do to the state only the murder of democratic values. The fundamental organizations like VHP, BJDL, RSS, RAMA SENA, and other recently sprouted fundamental organizations are zealous of other religions. But we Christians are not jealous of Hindu religion. Your comments displays you are also colluded with the fundamentals.

    Repent of evil and walk righteously and lawfully. I am not fully supporting Congress as you are hell bent on to support by hook or crook to the above specified fundamentals. What will be expected from you? Only evil. Congress has secular values and those are unwilling to secular values will jump and jump and many are still a frog in the well.

    @ Bobby Malhotra.
    you say "The person who has behind church attack is none other than from 'New Life' who has not given chance in priesthood" = biggest joke of the year. lol!
    1. No one stops any one in Catholicism to join priesthood.Seminaries follow an open door policy.P.N- If you DO NOT HAVE an idea of another religion please refrain from making such preposterous comments.
    2.WHen Mahendra Kumar - Convener of Bajrang Dal (which is a branch of RSS)claimed responsibility for the attacks then who are you and Shivanand Shetty to give it a clean chit?
    3. The report istelf has not mentioned any thing about New Life attacking churches....so please stop bluffing.It is impossible for such a miniscule sect to arrange resources in terms of logistics, network and manpower, weapons for such attacks.
    4. No one's making a mountain out of a mole hill. A few folks like yourself, Shivanand , Jayaram, Raj wanted facts which i duly placed forth but the question is do you'll have the stomach to digest it?
    5. The Indian Constitution guarantees every citizen equality and freedom irrespective of his faith Hence we DO NOT need to thank any one esp. your fraternity for our existence in this country.
    E. We all know this a corrupt land hence this 'two penny' report by Somshekara and his political masters can be torn and flushed down the toilet.
    Conclusion - The whole world know what happened and who was behind the Church attacks in September 2008.

New life is nothing but a group of Christ believers any body free to practice his religion so dont bother about Newlife or Oldlife, afterall it is christ which matters all of us

In the same way someone had thrown animal heads near sharavu ganapathi temple in mangalore last year and even many people had gathered there. This was solved without making a big issue. My question to you is why this was not made a big issue by congress or JDS like church attack or pub attack. Even i didnt see your comments when there was a matter posted about this in the website.

    Christians must be thankful to BJP Govt. for not fixing them and alleging that the attack was planned & excecuted by Christians themselves to defame BJP. See how all the recent bomb blast even though carried out by RSS Sanghparivar, more than 100 innocent Muslim youths have been fixed and languishin in various jails across the country. Dear christian brothers, this is the only Test dose for your community to terrorise, more lethal poisonous plans with the Sanghparviar to deomonise you (like they domonised muslims).

    The RSS has been censured for its involvement in communal riots in at least six reports by judges who presided over commissions of inquiry:
    1.Jaganmohan Reddy report on the Ahmedabad riots 1969
    2.D.P. Madon report on the Bhiwandi riots in 1970
    3.Vithayathil report on the Tellicherry riots in 1971
    4.Jitendra Narain report on the Jamshedpur riots in 1979
    5.P. Venugopal report on the Kanyakumari riots of 1982
    6.report on the Bhagalpur riots in 1989.
    In addition to the above:
    A. Its involvement in Babri masjid demolition is well documented.
    B. The way it orchestrated the Godhra riots at the behest of Modi is a well known fact ...no rocket science here!!
    C. We all know who sponsored the genocide of thousands of christians in Orissa as a result of which Mr. Naveen Patnaik booted BJP out of the alliance prior to the assembly and General election.
    D.Indresh Kumar the national utive member and the sahprachar pramukh in the RSS has been accused of the Ajmer Blast.

Government's soft approach on these elements have emboldened them to carry out more attacks.

    Many BJP supporters argue that this was against Conversion, then what was the need to vandalise Holy sanctum of Milagres Church, which is considered holy even by Hindus.

    Dear Shiva, Karkala:

    I think Justice Somashekara has been quite vague in this report on regards to accountability and the definition of the terms that he has used in his report:

    First, he had to define in his report, what is the meaning of "mainstream " Sangh Parivar and what is not mainstream Sangh Parivar!

    Second, he also has to define in his report what does he clearly mean when he mentions there was no "direct" or "indirect"
    by the politicians, BJP, Sangh Parivar and State Govt.

    Also by not mentioning who are these "defined" and "undefined" groups, terms that he has mentioned in his report, he is stirring a debate with his vague and broad-based conclusion which does not highlight much, inspite of doing his due-diligence for 2 years.

    Knowing about the propensity of indians to immediately jump to conclusions, he should have mentioned clearly who and what are these terms that he brings out in his report. By not doing so, it gives the impression that his report was adulterated by powerful elements in politics to give a partial conclusion favoring a certain segment of society.

The conclusion was already written at the start. That is why Yedyurappa has 'full confidence' in the judiciary. He knows that Somashekar like fellows would sell their conscience for a few bucks. Expect next, the Padmaraj Commission report as'Yedyurappa is totally innocent and the opposition parties are trying to malign his image'.

    Nithin Poojary, Mangalore\UK, you say "the attack was not done on churches it was only on missionaries convention centre." Are you aware that those sisters living within four walls, with no activity outside were attacked and later those crooks that they mistook them for conversion groups. Don't sell your ignorance, Nithin Poojari. You are in Uk, you are totally ignorant about what happened in Mangalore. I want objectivity, not just say that Hindu outfits were not guilty. A handful of crooks bringing shame and disgrace on entire Hindu community is not acceptable. Who chose them to represent the Hindus? I am against forced conversions, but if i want to voluntarily to believe and practice any faith, who are you to be against my free will and personal decision?

    Yedurappa is a big fraud but still claims he is innocent.
    What do you expect from a committee set up by a fraud?
    What was Justice B. K. Somashekara’s job? - To find out who was behind the attacks and not to find out who is innocent.
    It would have been nice if Justice B. K. Somashekara had stated “I am unable to conclude who conducted the attacks because I am incompetent”.
    Once again BJP is exposed and has become the laughing stock of this country.

    It took Somashekara 2 years to come to this conclusion? I am sure he had this report ready on day one. He just wanted to make money so prolonged it for two years.

    When a panel is set up they should identify the individual or the group which is responsible for the attacks. Just giving a vague conclusion like is not right.

    Mr. Nagesh Nayak, In the west people are converting to Hindusim. So you are ok if the local christians beat up the hindu priests there for conversion?

    DEAR ALL COMMENTATORS: THE JUSTICE DID NOT MENTION ATTACKS WERE CARRIED OUT BY CHRISTIANS AND THAT SENTENCE HE FELL SHORT OF HIS REPORT BECAUSE OF EMBARASSAMENT AND ELIMINATION OF THE COMMISIONS REPORT. LOOKS LIKE SOMASHEKAR'S SURVIVAL CASE FROM THE TERRORISTS.

    Dear Nelson, Udupi
    If majority of boarders are so sure that RSS / Bajrang Dal/BJP or any other Sangh Pariwar’s involvement, then kindly produce the proof, name the persons who are affiliated to the above organizations are directly involved in those heinous crimes and anti social activities. Then it is easy for the authorities/police to take direct action against them. Instead of naming the culprits you keep on crying here that they did this, they did that. You accept or not, the real reason is conversion and the relatives of the converted people angrily keep on attacking the institutions engaged in such activities. I never noticed all these years anybody from my place who is affiliated to Sangh Pariwar, ever made any attempt to attack Churches or ever talked about it. Increase in such incidents also due to foul play by Congress and JDS during Parliament election time to garner minority votes, if I remember correctly, even Governor has sent a recommendation to the Centre to remove the BJP Govt. from power on the grounds of attack on minorities, after all the game was played by all anti Sangh Pariwar elements and now got exposed.

    The Report that took two years to come out says only fundamentalists were involved- why noy say the Bajrang Dal whose boss went on TV to say it was done as retaliation for some trash article first written in Telugu by a Hindu who converted to Christianity years ago.This old article was translated into the local lingo and circulated in just a small pocket of DK by a splinter group of misinformed New Life persons.
    So tar all Christians and target the Catholics, their churches and their institutions.
    Where are these gutless characters who can see lakhs and lakhs of Hindus who have converted to Neo Buddhism thanks to the great Dr Ambedkar- they are still getting converted every day thanks to the bad treatment they get from the so called 'high class and pure representatives of Hinduism'.
    If they try their tricks with the Neo Buddhists they will all go to eternity fast- come on Bajrang Dal/ Ramsene/ others (and our masters standing in the background) try re-converting them back to your pure faith.
    Why do you send your children to "convent schools" why do you go to "christian colleges" why do you go to "missionary hospitals & clinics",etc etc- if you do not go to them then you will not get "polluted" by the christian way of life.
    You cannot have your cake and then bite the hand that has educated & treated you.
    More conversions are because people see the good in one against the bad of another and that is why they have a change of HEART,HEAD & MIND.

    "There is no basis to the apprehension of Christian petitioners that the politicians, BJP, mainstream Sangh Parivar and state government directly or indirectly, are involved in the attacks."

    On who was responsible, the report suggests, "The attacks are indulged in by misguided fundamentalist miscreants of defined or undefined groups or organizations against Christians and Christianity who have mistakenly presumed that they would be protected by the party in power with their policies at the relevant time."

    The Creator has not formed any religion. Sun when it gives light, it won't discriminate on anybody but gives light to the earth. Those who have done this grave act of vendalising one's religious place irrespecitve of religion will be paying the price in their own life and time will be the witness. Those who are party to this vendalisaiton will be the proof amongst each other. Wrath of the Creator for one's act, no body can evade or avoid.

    Justice Somashekar commission in its interiom report submitted earlier to the govt. had clearly vindicated that shri ram sene and bajarang dal's involvement in the attaccks. It had also said that the police personnel were directly or indirectly involved and women and children were beaten up in the church vicinities mercilessly. But the same commission has this time hidden all those facts and given the police and BJP and Sangh Parivar a clean chit. Though the commission has said that some hindu fundamental groups with hatred towards christian community have committed these acts the commission has not disclosed who are these so called hindu fundamental groups with hatred towards christians. This is a clear cut case of eye wash and Justice Somashekar has not done any justice to Christians. Knowingly or unknowingly he has tried to please the BJP govt.May God save the minorities in India.

Otherwise just shut your mouth and do not spread lies. I sometimes get so enraged that I do not want any christain hospital or institution to admit people who are not christians. But in the end our faith tells us otherwise. "Whatsoever you do to the least of my brothers....... that you do unto me". That is our weakness and that is what our missionaries cannot get over. There is no cure for this sickness. What use is our faith if we do not fulfill this wish of our Lord. Therefore honour them and do not cast unnecessary aspertions.

    Communal forces were directly involved in violence in following states (a)Karnataka-Church Attacks (b)Orissa-Burning of Children Of stain and burning of children. Buring of christain elderly people and rape of hindu girl in orissa. Communal heads have clearly and indirectly supported these forces
    (c)Gujarath-Indefinte riots and murders on minorities. These attacks now are covered under thir graves by the roads created by Modi .
    Needless to say which governments are ruling in above states.

    Recently I saw a irresponsible MP of a communal Party In Bihar saying(MR Singh) as long as there are improvements people are not bothered about communalism. India must make a rule to immediately jail such MPs who encourage killing of our brothers .In the meantime one must appreciate navin patnaik who was fed up with BJPs vandalism in Orissa and broke relationship with them.Bjp was trying to take advantage of collision with them and was directly encouraging attacks on poor minorities.they were shocked when Patnaik kicked them off.

    Recently when i was in Karnataka my friend said speak slowly .I asked Why? He said now its BJP rajya.If Goondas hear you speaking against they will attack you.I asked him in past we used to speak freely.My friend said things have changed Now

    Last but not the least there is good news finally. Padmaraj who is making enquiry against yeddu will soon clearoff Yeddu and others from all multi corruptional charges and clearing him off once for all.

    Hi Brother, Nagesh! What else u can say? Patient wanted Milk & Doctor prescribed too was milk. So there is no wonder that you make this kind of a statement. In case, the inquiry commission would've submitted a report accusing government & other offcials, u would've again blamed the commission,stating that they too R involved & therefore,favouring Christians. Well, regarding the conversion what you R talking about, even if anybody comes with leaflets or religious articles, if one's faith is emborsed irrespective of any religion, nobody can convert anybody, unless he fully trusts & experiences the truth of other religion. If a person wants 2 change his religion, it's only from his heart & by not external means. With reference 2 your comments regarding the treating of patients, this is a good deed which every human being must do 2 his fellow brethren. Its not only treating patients, but even a kind word towards ur neighbour can make a person 2 think about u saying, "I do not know this person, still he came 4 my help. This is what Jesus did 2 others during His time in this world, healing the sick of any nationality, caste or religion. He preached only 2 love 1 another as he has loved every person. If U really R a kind hearted Good Samaritan, & give ur helping hand 2 your fellow brethren,then, why not, by seeing ur example, others too will follow your foot steps & extnd their helping hand 2 others. This is how V can show our love 2 1 another. 4give me, if I'v hurt u my brother!!!!

By using the word christian missionaries Roman catholics are not involved in any such activities, it is organizations like New life are involved in it. Here the question is why Roman catholic churches are attacked?
    Secondly why are we blaming other religion for conversion, Lets keep are religion United and give equal rights to all the castes.
    In Udupi can Pejawar swamiji have is lunch with lower caste hindus?.
    Can BJP give higher positions to Lower castes?
    If there is no equality in Hindus,then the so called upper caste hindus dosen't have any right to talk about conversion, it is every individuals right to choose his religion were ever he/she gets respect. Who are you and me to talk about it.

    Nithin Poojary, Mangalore\UK The church attack happened is not at all correct, but do you know the reason behind this attack. The christian missionaries were circulating unnecessary information about hindu religions and gods which is also not correct. That's the reason the church attack was done and our state govt or RSS is not involved in it. Please comment about this also??

    No church attacks took place in Mangalore in 2008. Who said churches were attacked? There is complete communal harmony in Karnataka. B.S. Yeddyurappa is such a wonderful Chief Minister and our state is 'Heaven on Earth'. God's favourite State where there are no land scams, no illegal mining nor crimes or any attacks on any religious places. It's a 'Ram Rajya'.

    RAM, Mangalore / Bahrain i think you cannot hear the truth. It's the congress who made a big issue of church and pub attacks and people of our district have thought them a good lesson.

    Nobody had faith in this commission as it was set by communal BJP govt. The BD plaaned these attacks with the support of govt and how can one expect the real justice in this case. But no one is above god , and if BJP govt is in cris today because of this only. No body will survive who destroys gods house.

    We christians thought to forgive people and we will pray for those who went against god.

    If dog didn't bite, how can you see the dog bite marks?.

    If these Hindu gropes not attacked churches, then Alians came and attacked the Churches in Mangalore? All people including Hindus knows who attacked the churches and also Hindus groups accepted on National television.

    We Christians not surprised by this report.Shame on Somashekeran inquiry committee.

    Shame on this Government.

    Iam not suprised by the judicial enquiry this was expected, and further adding more even Yeddy will come clean in the land scam despite all the evidence. Governor please do something, you are the only hope as of known.

    SLAP ON PSUEDOS & OPPOSITION PARTIES.

    SIDDU & DKS WERE PRESENT WITHIN A MINUTE AFTER STONE THROWING INCIDENT ON CHURCHES IN BANGALORE.
    THIS SHOWS WHO ARE BEHIND TO SPOIL SHRIMAAN YEDIYURAPPAJI'S NAME.

    DISHARMONY IN THE SOCIETY IS BECOZ OF CONVERSION OF HIDUS INTO CHRISTAINITY BY FORCE, BY MONEY POWER , BY GIVING FREEE MEDICINES TO CONVERT THE PATIENTS.

    WE HAVE SEEN SEVERAL INCIDENTS OF CONVERTING POOR PEOPLE BY OFFERING MONEY. CHRISTAINS COME WITH THE BIBLE & LITERATURE WITH MONEY.

    THEY USED TO SAY JESUS WILL CURE UR DISEASE & INVITE THEM TO CHURCH .

    STANE & CO. IN ORISSA DID THE SAME THING. SHRIMAAN DARA SINGH TEACH THAM A LESSON.

    IN INDIA SOCIETY IS SPOLING BECOZ OF CONVERSION BY CHRISTAINS & TERRORISM BY MUSLIMS.

    HINDUS ARE STILL UNITED & HINDUISM IS THE BEST RELIGION IN THE WORLD.

    I would be foolish if I had expected anything other than this from this esteemed Justice Somashekar Commission. He enjoyed so many months at the expenses of the Tax payers money and turned a blind eye to the truth. I hope God will forgive him for this.
