valsa john

this was in the front page of toronto globe and mail today.

yes, front page. not because canada is a xtian country, and sticking up for the nuns. but more, the concept of mafias controlling the economy.

here is another article, also in today's globe. it is about robber barons. what we call dadas.


i think, this is yet another occassion for our religious heads to come out and speak against injustices to the adivasis. it can be a start to redeem their reputation. would the head of kanchi mutt, open up and utter some words of disapproval over what happened to sr. valsa john and the deprival of santals of their ancient lands, and forced eviction.

dont we care about such injustices ? why should we leave this burden to the catholic sisters and hierarchy? where is our conscience?

Dear Kunjuppu,

I read a different version of this incident in Times of India, Mumbai. Ms John initially was supporting the adivasis, joined their movement and fought against a Coal company. She, therefore, gained a lot of respect among the people. For the last three years, however, she had abandoned her agitational path and got appointed in the school run by the very same coal company. This angered the adivasis, who considered her as a traitor and they killed her. Of course, her family members tried to cover up by saying that it was the coal mafia that killed her. Even police investigations indicate the involvement of local people who were angry with her for her sudden change.
thanks subbu.

let us hear from other sources about this. i was surprised, to put it mildly, that this story got the front page of the toronto globe.
Suspicion now is about Maoists also, see here.

Normally, the Christian church makes use of these nuns to convert adivasi population into Christianity. These people are given adequate training and all that so that they will be able to get the affection of those adivasi women first. But when a large number of families are converted -or attempt is made to convert them in large nymbers - these people do not like it. May be nowadays, the Maoists are also playing a role in resisting such conversions.

But when the goi itself is subtly spreading xianity (e.g., the two rupee coin with the pattern of a christian cross in it) we have to wait and watch what all news comes out in the valsa john murder case.
