Re: Oppression of the Syrians?
- Mr. George Aramath,
You have rightly observed that no syriac fathers ever enslaved or
murdered any Malankara (Keralite)Christians. On the contrary, the
Holy Syriac fathers were either got killed or they themselves gave
up their lives for the Malankara Christians. They practised what
they preached-the unconditional love and affection of a responsible
shepherd towards his sheep. IOC member Dr. M.S. Alexander's feeble
attempt to white-wash some dark figures of methran kashi is highly
deplorable. He equates our holy fathers to Chinese and Pak army!!!
What a shame....Even non-Christians know that the Portugheese were
the Chinese or Pak army to the Syriac Christians, not the Holy
Syriac fathers. Dr. Alexander should know that his faction (IOC)
never got independence from the mother Church. If his faction got
independence, how can they have the Holy Patriarch as their head in
their Bible, the 1934 constitution? Why his rebel group has
everything similar to the Jacobite Church? We can ask several
similar questions knowing that IOC will have no answeres for the
same. Hence, The 'independence' argument of IOC is baseless.
Mahatma Gandhi always preached and worked for unity in the mother
country, not for its division. Gandhi even had to give his own life
for that good cause. It was Jinnah (the father of Pakistan) who
argued for and caused the division of our mother country. Like
Mahatma Gandhi, the holy syriac fathers gave their life for the
unity of the mother Church-The Universal Syriac Church.
Unfortunately, it was the 'Jinnahs' of our church (like Vattasseril
thirumeni and Basaelios Geevarghese II catholicose) caused the painful
division in our mother chuch because of mere greed.
And who killed the 'dove of peace' in the Indian history? It was one
senseless person-Nathuram Godse.
And who killed the 'dove of peace' in the Holy Universal Syriac
Church? There is a long list of peace killers...and Dr. M.S.
Alexander of IOC has listed a couple in his posting.
Glory to God.
