Re: Agenda for the inaugural meeting of the NIC on
31st August 2005

Greetings

The Christian Community of India, and specially its Dalit and marginalised
sections, congratulate the Government of India, acting on your commitment,
for reconstituting the National Integration Council, and convening its
meeting after a gap of more than 13 years.

The reconstitution of the NIC had been received with great hope and
enthusiasm by the Minority communities and general and the Christian
community in particular as its cries of anguish had gone unheard in the
corridors of governance and administration for much the last decade. The
hope was the greater because of several other welcome steps taken by your
Government, including the setting up the National Commission on Minority
Educational Institutions, the Rangnath Commission on backwardness among
linguistic and religious groups, and the Justice Sachchar Commission to
evaluate the economic condition of Muslims in India.

It is therefore that we received the Agenda papers of the NIC meeting with
great disappointment and some alarm. Some of us hope to present to the
inaugural Council meeting a Paper on `A Christian perspective on National
Integration' reflecting our anxieties and expectations, and our great faith
in the nurture and security of democracy in our great country.

But we feel obliged to challenge now certain basic assumptions in the
Agenda papers which reflect insensitivity, to say the least, if not
pre-conceived notions about our work, that seems to be a carryover from the
past NDA government.

The agenda draftsmen of papers seem to believe that forcible and
fraudulent conversions (to Christianity) are the main cause of civil unrest
in tribal and other rural areas. This is a malicious myth propagated by
obscurantist and fundamentalist - and often violent - political groups and
their frontal organisations of a well known exclusivist ideology which
believed in the thesis of One nation, One people, One Culture" totally
negating the Indian reality of Unity and Diversity. The lie has been
perpetrated for decades without evidence. Nuns have been raped, Priests
murdered, churches attacked and believers harassed under the umbrella of
this lie. No court, no state government and no district administration ahs
been able to adduce a straw of evidence to prove fraudulent and forcible
conversions. On the contrary, forcible and often violence `ghar wapsi'
programs by criminal gangs have been the norm in the tribal belt. And yet
state governments have fortified Anti-Conversion law!
s till they totally erode all Constitutional Guarantees of Freedom of
faith and come dangerously close to India seemingly rejecting InterNational
Charters of Freedom to which it is a proud signatory.

We would have expected the Inaugural NIC Agenda to be more focused and
holistic, reflecting the National concern at the hijacking of the
educational system, the communalization of the body fabric including the
police force and the subordinate judiciary (as pointed out by the highest
police and judicial officers in the land), the hunger deaths in various
states, and finally, the collusion of the state and political apparatus in
Gujarat, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, in the victimization of the
religious minorities.

We also expected the Government to promise to give Statutory and
Constitutional shape to the National Integration Council, to give it at
least a permanent and powerful Secretariat.

I am sure you will look into it.

God bless you, you Government, and God bless India

With warm regards

JOHN DAYAL






AN OPEN LETTER TO JOHN DAYAL

FROM P.N.BENJAMIN,
Coordinator, Bangalore Initiative for Religious Dialogue (BIRD)

Dear Mr. Dayal,

This has reference to your recent letter to the Honourable Prime Minister
on the National Integration Council.

I would like to as you some genuine questions on the subject. Most of them
are questioning your own integrity. So, do not get perturbed or try to evade
answers. You are first of all no Holy Joe, Mr. Dayal.

Can one have integration without integrity? Where is your integrity? What
is integrity of the people like you who talk about it, but keep quiet when
everywhere the essence of integration is being deliberately destroyed by
vested interests? Are you really interested in integration?

And is integration only to be between Muslims, Christians and Dalits whom
you have been using as cannon fodder for long for your vested interests, to
occupy cushy positions as member of NCM and the like? Or should integration
be widened to bring the whole of our neglected, despised India into the
mainstream of the nation's activities, its hopes and its dreams?

Hindu-bashing, especially RSS/VHP/Bajrang Dal bashing, seems to be your
only hobby.
This business has been bringing you millions of dollars and
invitations to umpteen seminars and consultations in Western countries. How
can such a despicable character talk of national 'integration' when your
personal integrity itself is under cloud?


Have you ever bothered about the hungry people with hunger pangs growing
in their intestines when you enjoy your life in five-star surroundings and
shed copious crocodile tears for the minority communities and Dalits? What
is the use of talking about integration when the hungry cannot partake at
your dinner table? Will you answer these questions, Mr. Dayal, here and now?

A struggle can be linked to an onion. You take it off layer by layer and
sometimes you cry. This is the situation in India, the India of the poor,
which is in ferment, stirring itself to challenge the chains of bondage that
have seared their very souls over the years. They are fighting the
carpetbaggers and the charlatans, like you, of this country.

Without integrity, without a deep and abiding commitment to the poor of
the country, all talk of national integration is only a lot of bullshit.

We are passing through a crisis of unprecedented dimensions, symbolized by
the collapse of values. Self-styled Christian leaders like you have emerged
bereft of principles. Our national life has been polluted by the venality of
the discredited men like you. You have therefore no moral right to talk of
'national integration'.
