Pastor who organised hate speech, booked on gang-rape charges too

  • Swami Vivekanand had said, “Every man going out of the Hindu pale is not only a man less, but an enemy the more !”

Chennai – A 36-year-old married woman from Veeyannoor of Thiruvattar District in Tamil Nadu has registered a complaint against Christian priest Arumanai Stephen, the Secretary of Arumanai Christian Association (ACA), accusing him of not only gang-raping her but also recording the act. Seven others allegedly committed the crime along with the Pastor. (This is the true face and intention of these missionaries ! Despite the fact that numerous incidents have come to light, with allegations of even Sisters in the Churches claiming rape by such ‘Fathers’, neither the people, nor the Government take any action. – Editor)

Pastor Stephen has been under arrest for organising an event in the Kanyakumari District in which controversial Catholic priest George Ponnaiah had made hate speech against Hindus and abused Hindu Deities.

In April, the victim had filed a complaint with the Police, but no action was taken due to their close relationship with the ruling DMK. (Such is the clout of these ‘loving missionaries’ ! – Editor) Fearing Police action a few days later, one accused Jefferson ended his life. After the Police arrested Stephen in the hate speech case, along with Pastor George Ponnaiah, the victim came forward to file another Online complaint against Stephen seeking justice.

The Police have also booked Stephen, DMK functionary John Bright, Henslin, Callister Jebaraj and others under IPC sections for unlawful confinement, stealing, sexual abuse, issuing death threats, etc.

Stephen had organised the hate speech event of Father George Ponnaiah

Stephen was the organiser of a public meeting at Arumanai in which Father George Ponnaiah had made a hate speech against Hindus on 18th July at Arumanai. (Swami Vivekanand had said about such people a hundred years ago – Every man going out of the Hindu pale is not only a man less, but an enemy the more. What else can we expect from such people ! – Editor)

During the meeting with his followers, Father George Ponnaiah had condemned the closure of churches and the ban on conducting prayer meetings amidst the Coronavirus lockdown. Father George Ponnaiah had paid tribute to late Maoist sympathiser Stan Swamy and criticised the move to deny permits to build new churches on Patta land.

Father George Ponnaiah slammed the Minister for Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments Department (HRCE), PK Sekar Babu, “It does not matter how many temples you renovate and consecrate. No Hindu, no devotee of Mandaikattu Amman, is going to vote for you. If you won, then it is the alms we Christians and Muslims have thrown to you. You won not because of your talents”. (This has come out into the open yet again ! And, Hindus fool themselves by running after and believing in so-called ‘secularism’ ! Do the Hindus not feel ashamed of such demeaning words ? Do Hindu leaders have any self-respect at all ? Let the Government also get a clarification from Ponnaiah and suitably punish him. – Editor)

While speaking about the role of the Church in ensuring DMK’s victory, he had said, “Bishops just signalled with their eyes and our workers including the Pentecostal movement workers went and canvassed for you (DMK and Congress)”. George Ponnaiah was heard admonishing another candidate for not openly associating with the Church.

He had also insulted Bharat Mata. During a public address, he mocked a candidate for not wearing footwear out of respect for Mother Earth (Bhumadevi/Bharat Mata). “But we wear shoes. Why ? Because the impurities of Bharat Mata should not contaminate us. The Tamil Nadu Government has given us free footwear. This bhumadevi is dangerous, you could catch scabies from it”. Besides vulgar rhetorics and open polarisation, Ponnaiah made despicable remarks about PM Modi and Amit Shah.
