Kerala Muslim league minister refuses to light the lamp

In Kerala on November 20, 2011 at 6:56 am

Kerala cabinet minister Dr. M.K. Muneer, in-charge of Social Welfare and Panchayats, refused to light the lamp nila vilakku at this years’ inaugural ceremony of Revathi Pattathanam, the traditional literary colloquium of Kozhikode Calicut. Tradition maintains that this literary assembly was started in 1309 CE by the Zamorin King of Calicut. Muneer was the proposed inaugurator of the function which held at Tali Zamorin Guruvayoorappan Hall, Kozhikode, on Nov. 9, 2011. The universally accepted practice of inaugurating an event or beginning an auspicious occasion in Kerala is by lighting a lamp. It is a symbolic exercise by which the message of “from darkness to light” is transmitted. Even the oldest Muslim mosque of Kerala, Kodungalloor Cheraman Mosque, still keeps a lighted lamp, nila vilakku. Earlier, several such mosques were there, but now under fundamentalist pressure, such conventions are muted. Revathi Pattathanam, a seven day literary assembly, begins on the day of Revati asterism in the month of Tulam of Malayalam Era October –November. This intellectual colloquium was regularly conducted by the Zamorins in the premises of the Tali Temple of Calicut, except during the days of Tipu Sulthan’s invasion/onslaughts over Malabar in the closing decades of the eighteenth century. Distinguished scholars from all over India participated in the colloquium since its inception. At the end of the colloquium, the Zamorin honoured the outstanding scholars by presenting the title Bhatta along with a cash award.

Global terror spreading tentacles into Kerala prisons?

In Kerala on November 4, 2011 at 1:56 am

Global terror has spread its tentacles into the prisons of Kerala, which with its sobriquet of God’s Own Country used to be a state known for peace and communal harmony till some years back, if the contents of a report submitted to the State Government by the Additional Director General of Police (Prisons) are any indication.

The report presented by ADGP Alexander Jacob to the Government contains enough information to believe that serious developments affecting national security have been taking place in the State’s prisons recently. The ADGP has called for immediate remedial measures to ensure that terror does not get a foothold in Kerala’s jails.

Analyses of call details of some of the 120 mobile phones confiscated from various prisons in the State have shown that prisoners have been in contact with people outside India, even in countries like Pakistan and Afghanistan. Even satellite phones had come into play in this development, says the ADGP’s report.

If this can happen in Kashmir, Why not in other parts of India where conversions lead to riots?

In Kerala on October 31, 2011 at 11:52 am

Police have registered a case against “unknown” persons after a video purportedly showing conversion of Muslim youths to Christianity surfaced on various social networking sites.

“We have registered a case under relevant sections of the law over allegations of religious conversions in the Valley,” a senior police official said today.

He said the case was registered following complaints that Kashmiri youths were being lured away from their religion.

A Shariat court (Islamic Court) has issued a notice to a Christian priest to explain his position on alleged conversion of Muslim youths to Christianity at a Church here.

Police on the lookout for U.S. evangelist

In Kerala on October 14, 2011 at 9:15 am

Three squads of the City Police have been despatched to trace William Lee, a U.S.-based evangelist.

Contrary to initial reports, the City Police could not detain him for violating visa norms. Mr. Lee arrived on a tourist visa, which did not allow him to address a public meeting. On getting information about his speaking at a gospel convention called ‘Musical Splash 2011′ at the Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium, Kaloor, a police team arrived at the spot and asked him not to violate the visa conditions.

Even though the organisers agreed to it, Mr. Lee addressed the gathering by late night. This was spotted by two policemen posted at the venue and higher officials were alerted immediately. On being signalled to stop the lecture, Mr. Lee got off the stage and left by the back entrance.

Efforts by the police to detain him failed, as he was not available at the hotel where he was staying. Following this, a First Information Report was filed at the Palarivattom police station against Mr.. Lee and officials of Faith Leaders Church of God, the organisers of the convention.

Look-out alerts against Mr. Lee have also been sent to all airports to prevent him from leaving the country. He had come on a multiple-entry tourist visa valid till March 20, 2012. The organisers of the event, from Thiruvalla, are also absconding since the police intervention.
