Ex-Mizo chief minister questions Sonia faith – The Times of India

Former Mizoram chief minister and chief of the opposition Mizo National Front (MNF), Zoramthanga, has questioned the religion of UPA chairperson and Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

Addressing party workers at the Hnam Run MNF office in Aizawl, Zoramthanga alleged that Indian nationalism has sought to do away with other religions and nationalities in the name of secularism.

“Sonia Gandhi used to be a Roman Catholic, the most orthodox church among Christian church denominations,” he said, adding that after she immersed herself in Indian nationalism it has become impossible to identify her religion. He further said that Indian nationalism is sacrificing other religions by trying to bring other nationalities into the mainstream. “Equality of all religions was espoused in the name of secularism,” he said.Slamming chief minister Lal Thanhawla and his wife for allegedly performing puja before a Hindu idol, Zoramthanga termed the incident as “most serious”.

“The Congress tried to defend its leader by saying ‘even our former governor attended a Christian church service’, but the fact remains that the chief minister disobeyed the Bible,” he said. He referred to the Bible and said Jesus Christ did not amend the Ten Commandments which says, “Thou shalt not have other Gods except Me and do not worship idols.”

Lal Thanhawla and his wife have been in the line of fire of the MNF and the opposition parties after a Kolkata-based English newspaper published a photograph showing them lighting candles before an idol of a Hindu goddess.
