MUMBAI, (Abraham Mathai), 7th July 2012 — Christian community condemns Sangma for cosing up to Narendra Modi and exonerating RSS/VHP. Such lack of integrity and values disqualifies him for the highest office.
It is a rather disturbing and distressing situation for a person of the caliber and stature of P.A. Sangma to stoop so low by compromising his principles to warm up to Narendra Modi the main perpetrator of the 2002 Gujarat genocide in lieu of his support for his candidature for Presidency.
To add insult to injury, last week he absolved and exonerated the VHP/RSS from the Orissa pogroms of 2008 where Catholic priests were killed brutally, nuns raped before being murdered and burned, Church property destroyed and vandalized. Does this suggest that Sangma is undergoing a spell of amnesia which has conveniently obliterated from his mind these horrendous accounts that shocked civilized humanity to the core?
Such acts are a total betrayal to the very principles and tenets of Christianity and a severe and degrading insult to the martyrs who have laid down their very dear lives for the faith in Christ.
Cosing up to Modi is a clear sign that Sangma has lost his moral bearing hence entrusting him with the Presidency which is the highest office in the land is absolutely dangerous as he is proving to be a person who cannot be relied upon as a last resort in times of crisis.
The BJP has specialized in the art of tokenism whereby the victim minority is often rewarded with the Presidency after a pogrom…. a Muslim Abdul Kalam after 2002 pogrom and a Christian Sangma after Orissa and Karnataka attacks.
In view of the above, it is imperative for the Christian community to write to the Pope through his representative in New Delhi to ex communicate Sangma since he has proven that he does not have the community interests at heart but would rather fraternize with the communal elements who are maliciously targeting the community.
