Rose petals for Shiva pilgrims, beatings and arrests for Christians
What they are doing is paying homage to the false god Shiva, and at the same time Mocking the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem on what is known as Palm Sunday!
John 12:12-13 “On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.”
by Nirmala Carvalho | Asia News | New Delhi – Police chief and local official drop flower petals from a helicopter on Kanwariyas, the pilgrims of Shiva. Traffic and security are in a mayhem as a result of acts of violence and hooliganism. Violence against Christians in Uttar Pradesh fill a list.
Whilst acts of hooliganism and violence against Christians intensify in Uttar Pradesh, India’s “secular” authorities continue to show “preferences” for Hindus.
Yesterday, senior police and government officials in Meerut (62 km north-east of Delhi), threw rose petals from a helicopter to greet Kanwar pilgrims.
A video, shared on social media, shows Additional Director General of Police Prashant Kumar throwing rose petals during an aerial tour. He was accompanied by Meerut’s commissioner.
Kanwar Yatra is the annual pilgrimage of devotees of the Lord Shiva. Pilgrims carry water from the Ganges River in pitchers, balanced between their shoulders at both ends of a stick. The pilgrims, called Kanwariyas, walk this way for hundreds of kilometres, barefoot.
Prashant Kumar replied today to charges posted on social media of “favouritism” for throwing rose petals. “No religious angle should be given to this,” he said. “Flowers are used to welcome people. The administration respects all religions and actively takes part even in Gurupurab, Eid, Bakrid* or Jain festivals.”
Note: The Police Director left out Christianity in the mix! WHY? You will see a few paragraphs down!
The police official, along with other colleagues, monitored security measures and traffic, a major challenge during the pilgrimage because of the presence of thousands of pilgrims who move through cities on their way to Uttarakhand where they collect the water from the sacred river.
Despite denials, police “favouritism” towards Hindu pilgrims is clearly evinced by their nonchalant attitude towards pilgrims’ hooliganism.
Two days ago, in Moti Nagar, near Delhi, a group of Kanwariyas wrecked a car with sticks and iron bars because the car had tried to cross the road, swarming with pilgrims, inadvertently brushing against one of them.
In reporting the incident, The Hindustan Times wrote that “confrontations and violence [. . .] are reported every year” during Kanwar Yatra, adding that the pilgrims’ “outlaw” style includes refusing to travel on designated lanes and, for those riding their motorbikes, to wear a helmet.
Sajan K George, president of the Global Council of Indian Christian, spoke to AsiaNews about the festival.
Noting that “the police and governmental authorities of Uttar Pradesh drop flower petals from helicopters on Kanwar Yatra devotees, dressed in saffron-coloured robes,” he contrasted this with the fact that “Pentecostal Christians in Uttar Pradeeh continue to endure attacks.”
“Added to this, there are food restrictions. Senior Police superintendent Rajesh Kumar Pandey said that all restaurants and shops not serving vegetarian food have to stay closed or serve only vegetarian food during the days of the Kanwar Yatra. Like in Moti Nagar, violence by the ‘saffron’ people is ignored with police standing idly by.”
“These incidents send worrying signals to minority communities in Uttar Pradesh where they live in a climate of fear. India is a secular country, which means equal treatment by the state for all religions. Unfortunately, such signs of preference for the ‘saffron’ people by the police and the administration, push Christians towards greater marginalisation.”
To highlight the situation, Sajan K George compiled a short list of attacks on Christians in Uttar Pradesh last month:
– 2 July: Hindu radicals attacked 150 Christians who had gathered to pray in a meeting hall in Raikashipur, a village in Pratapgarh district. More than 20 Christians were injured, some with broken limbs.
– 9 July: Pastor Sabu Thomas, who was praying with a family in their home in Lucknow, was arrested on charges of forced conversion. He was released several hours later.
– 15 July: Hindu radicals, along with police, broke up a prayer service in the village of Birne. Christians were ordered not to hold such meetings any more, nor conduct any activity without the permission of the authorities.
– 19 July, a Christian pastor and his son were beaten for driving away a stray dog from their church.
* Gurupurab is a Sikh festival; Eid and Bakrid are Islamic celebrations; Jainism is an ancient Indian religion.
Who is Shiva? Shiva is “the Destroyer” or “the Transformer” and is regarded as limitless, transcendent, unchanging and formless.
These excerpts come from http://www.hinduwebsite.com/hinduism/siva.asp Knowing they are looking for the “God Particle” and some warn doing so could create a mini “black hole”, read the following.
“Shiva is the quintessential destroyer. His duty is to destroy all the worlds at the end of creation and dissolve them into nothingness. Modern theories of space do suggest the possible ending of the physical universe after some billions of years through the expansion of a gigantic black hole devouring the matter from endless galaxies. Perhaps Shiva would be the black hole performing this task. However this does not mean that Shiva would remain idle till the arrival of that time. Before the worlds really come to an end, Shiva has many things to do to keep the worlds going.“
More on the False god Shiva
Shiva (meaning “The Auspicious One”), also known as Mahadeva (“Great God”), is one of the main deities of Hinduism. He is the supreme god within Shaivism, one of the three most influential denominations in contemporary Hinduism. He is one of the five primary forms of God in the Smarta tradition, and “the Destroyer” or “the Transformer” among the Trimurti, the Hindu Trinity of the primary aspects of the divine.
At the highest level, Shiva is regarded limitless, transcendent, unchanging and formless. Shiva also has many benevolent and fearsome forms. In benevolent aspects, he is depicted as an omniscient Yogi who lives an ascetic life on Mount Kailash, as well as a householder with wife Parvati and his two children, Ganesha and Kartikeya and in fierce aspects, he is often depicted slaying demons. Shiva is also regarded as the patron god of yoga and arts.
The main iconographical attributes of Shiva are the third eye on his forehead, the snake Vasuki around his neck, the crescent moon adorning, the holy river Ganga flowing from his matted hair, the trishula as his weapon and the damaru as his musical instrument. Source: Wikipedia
If you go to the store to buy Meat, don't run to the Milk section or the Junk Food aisle looking for it!!
The Meat Section is the True Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Milk Section is likened to those who will not preach on sin and Hell, just a feel good message, the Social gospel.
The Junk Food Isle is the outright false doctrine AKA the prosperity gospel, name it and claim it, the Hebraic Roots movement and other false teachings!!
Feasting on just Milk and Junk will eventually cause you great harm, you can count on it!!
