WHAT HAPPENED TO FREE THINKING AND FREE SPEECH IN DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF INDIA? HOW IS SRIRAM YADAPADITHAYA DIFFERENT FROM COPERNICUS, GALILEO GALILEI, AND OTHERS THAT QUESTIONED THE DOGMA OF CATHOLICS ALL OVER THE WORLD? WHAT IS SO SACRED AND SACROSANCT ABOUT THE DOGMA THAT IS DESIGNED TO DOMINATE AND CONQUER THE WORLD WHICH IS NOT ANY DIFFERENT FROM THE ISLAMIC INTOLERANCE OF THOSE WHO DO NOT AGREE WITH THEM? WHY SHOULD NONBELIEVERS IN CATHOLICISM OR FOR THAT MATTER IN CHRISTIANITY NOT HAVE FREE SPEECH WHEN THE EVANGELIST ICONOCLASTS ENTER HINDU TEMPLES AND PUBLICLY BERATE "IDOL WORSHIP" WHICH THEY IDIOTICALLY FAIL TO COMPREHEND AS A LEGITIMATE SPIRITUAL PATH? IS THIS A BEGINNING OF ANOTHER GOA INQUISITION IN INDEPENDENT INDIA UNDER THE NAME OF SECULARISM ?
City Police arrest Bengaluru based former telecom executive for hate comments
MANGALURU: Mangaluru City Police on Tuesday have arrested Sriram Yadapadithaya, 27, a former telecom company executive and resident of Balaji Nagar, Uttarahalli in Bengaluru on charges of posting objectionable message on social media networking site against a particular religious community. Sriram arrested in Bengaluru was brought to the city and produced before the jurisdictional court on Wednesday, which remanded him in to judicial custody.
Fr William Menezes, public relations officer of Mangaluru Catholic Diocese had lodged complaint with Mangaluru City Police against Sriram based on his comments on Facebook. The complaint alleged that the comments questioned the basic tenets of Christianity. The comments, Fr William said were also an affront to the Indian Constitution which upheld secularism and also created a situation of creating a rift between two communities and causing law and order problem.
A case was registered against Sriram in Mangaluru South police station under section 66 of IT Act and sections 153A, 153B and 295A of IPC, commissioner of police S Murugan said. Incidentally, Catholic Sabha, Mangaluru Pradesh, taking offence to what it described were derogatory references and writings about Christianity, Jesus Christ, Mother Mary and Mother Teresa in social media platforms, writings and speeches, had sought arrests of those involved.
The Indian Constitution respects and gives equal opportunity to all religions. However, certain vested interests are trying to vitiate the atmosphere with such acts, Flavy D'Souza, president of the Catholic Sabha, stated, and had urged the state and central governments, and authorities concerned to take strict action against people who indulge in such acts. The Sabha had warned it would resort to democratic means of agitation if the authorities failed to do so.
