Highly Disturbing

There are some highly disturbing reports in 'The Hindu' and 'Dinamalar' (14 Dec11, issue) titled " Villagers oppose construction of church " and mentioning about lorry loads of B.Manihatti villagers staging a demonstration at the Collectorate[Ooty] and submitting a memorandum that the activities of some persons - to construct a church in the village - that are threatening the unity of the village.

As correctly pointed out by these villagers, this move to construct a church and the reported forced religious conversion is bound to affect not only the Badaga Culture but the very fabric of this unique community that has striven to safe guard its traditions, customs and rituals for centuries.

We all stand by the Villagers of B.Manihatti and offer our complete cooperation and solidarity and appeal to the authorities to stop this construction.

When will these 'traitors' of Badaga Traditions, who are on the pay rolls of some of these Pastors and Impostors learn to respect the great Badaga sensivity ?

It is enervating to read this encroachment by external parasitic forces that are troublesome for the sovereignty and specialty of unique Badaga Culture. this issue must be tackled with the help of local people approaching the collector to demolish new buildings in the vicinity of hatties by Christians,

Unless opposed at early stage, we may have to search for native Badagas after few years. The tolerance shown by badagas need not be shown in this matter. We should be ruthless to such elements
