Hindu dharma is implicitly at odds with monotheistic intolerance. What is happening in India is a new historical awakening... Indian intellectuals, who want to be secure in their liberal beliefs, may not understand what is going on. But every other Indian knows precisely what is happening: deep down he knows that a larger response is emerging even if at times this response appears in his eyes to be threatening.

HC fines two protesting Pope mourning

Posted online: Thursday, April 21, 2005 at 0929 hours IST

New Delhi, April 21: The High Court has fined two men Rs 10,000 for legally challenging the mainly Hindu country's official three days of mourning for the death of Pope John Paul II, a newspaper reported on Thursday.

The High Court in New Delhi said the petition urging the government not to declare official mourning for people "less significant for our country" and complaining of lost working days was a publicity-seeking "abuse of process".

It was not clear if the two men, one of them a college lecturer, must pay Rs 10,000 each or the combined amount together.

Note: Not a single Indian English paper objected to national mourning on pope's death which is clearly a violation of secularism. While pope's blessing, melo-dramatic tales about the new nazi popes relation to India is given front line coverage. Not a single one of them mentioned that the pope had nazi links or that he openly claims that anyone who does not follows catolicsm is not following a true religion. According to the Indian English media such a pope is a benovolent compassionate person, but ekal vidyalaya is fanaticism. If you follow the english media you will realize that according to them hinduism == fanatiscm and christianity, islam is good good.
