India nun cow

Indian Cardinal Baselios Cleemis Thottunkal (front, in C) walks out of the Convent of Jesus and Mary school after meeting with the school staff in Ranaghat in the eastern Indian state of West Bengal March 18, 2015. In the days before the rape of an elderly nun in an armed assault that has shaken India, death threats and extortion attempts had already shattered the peace at her Convent of Jesus and Mary school, police and school officials say. The attack also comes amid a trend of worsening security for India's Christian minority, less than one year since the government of Hindu nationalist Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to power.

NEW DELHI (Reuters) The Catholic cardinal's comments appeared directed against hardline Hindu nationalists who have stirred up animosity against India's Christian and Muslim minorities while successfully lobbying for tougher laws against killing cows.

    It seems the Cardinal has some special ability to decide who the accused are with no evidence and no investigation. But he was wrong. His rant was purely political with an icing from his black heart filled with communal hatred through a tongue sharpened at the Palace of Satan. It turns out some of the accused are fellow Abrahamics from Bangladesh.

    I also understand that the ALLEGED victim has been removed stealthily from Calcutta and will soon be shipped abroad so that she cannot be questioned by the CBI. I also understand (subject to verification) that the money lost from the place was black money and that the victim had this habit of acting superior and abusing all and sundry – be it staff or students or their parents. IF it is true there were enough enemies. Matter requires thorough examination.

    Or is the removal of the victim an attempt to save the fellow abrahamics as it seems, some feel, fellow abrahamics are ENTITLED to such fun just like their priests at convents.
