Subject: Strong Rebuttal To Ribeiro Outburst By Dr. (Mrs) Hilda Raja
You may like to read this in continuation of yesterday’s mail on this issue. Hilda Raja, an upholder of Hinduism, is not unknown to our readers/viewers. Her piece, correctly titled, “Truth Must Prevail” is a clear denunciation of the “outburst” (we suppose only temporary) of Julio Ribeiro. The attached copy is worth reading and re-reading.
Some important paragraphs from Hilda Raja’s mail are reproduced below:
· To me who am 78 the whole accusation of his seems to have no foundation. As with Julio Ribeiro, my ancestry also can be traced to Hinduism. While he agrees on this the question arises why we are Christians today. How did it happen? What kind of inducement-allurement and what strategy of proselytization were used those days for my ancestors to become Christians?
· We must agree that there was persecution, forced conversion by the conquerors. It was a question of torture and death to which the Hindu ancestors were subjected to. This is not fairy tales but recorded history when thousands of temples were destroyed, houses were ransacked and people were brutalized. Those who indulged in this human rights violations were treated as Saints by the Vatican and raised to Sainthood. But now we raise a hue and cry against ‘ghar Vapsi’. What was good for one is not good for another. It is not though these were in the hoary past. Even today most of the NGOs do indulge in this proselytization. I wish the government of India ban all foreign funds. If China could develop without such NGOs and the foreign funds why should India not?
· It must be noted that the Vatican abetted and colluded with Mussolini and Hiltler in all their brutality. It stood to gain both in terms of power and money. Yet we often hear the word ‘Fascist’ being thrown against the BJP and the saffron brigade. This is part of the Christian parampara of the Catholic Church to which Julio Ribeiro and I belong to. Yet we are scandalized by the ‘ghar Vapsi. What about the Inquisitions held in India – in Goa. With so much of baggage how can we point a finger to others – to the saffron groups and then pretend that we are being victimized and discriminated? All rapes are abominable and need to be condemned in the strongest terms. But why only the rape of the nun – be it in Orissa and now in W. Bengal be internationalized? Why and how can the Vatican interfere and want to send a delegation?
· I am 78 and thought it is time to speak out. The ordinary people like me are happy and content – feel no persecution or discrimination and are not on the hit list. Even if we are, truth cannot be hidden. In fact it was the Church which had crucified TRUTH and continues to do so. Perhaps there may be aberrations to this. It must not be forgotten that Julio Ribeiro was hounded by a minority community for the alleged human rights violations in Punjab. It was not the Hindus who were behind it.
Friends, some of you would recall we had in the recent past occasions to share with you that some scholars had actually wondered that the reaction from the “victimised” Hindu community had come so late indeed. Nothing more needed to be said on this.
