After capturing power and establishing Crown rule in 1858, the British government gifted vast stretches of lands to the churches and supported them with other infrastructures.
Approving untouchability, he said in 1650, “A person need not disown his caste, creed and culture to become a Christian. Outwardly conducting himself like a Hindu sanyasi, he took care of the conversion business in the districts of Madurai and Thanjavur. This Protestant priest landed in Tranquebar (Tharangampaadi) in 1706 and worked with a Danish company which was the first to bring German printing machines to Tamil Nadu. Even while indulging in conversions, he often quarrelled with the Danish authorities who put him in jail for some time. His retrospection of married life leads him to keep contact with the Deva Dasis serving the Temple.Those who say that these would get spoilt if one becomes a Christian are ‘Saathaans’. He was the first to stoke anti-Brahmanism by creating a hatred for Brahmins among other communities. Pope in general and the Dravidian-Christian combo in particular have spread the following story for years: “G. Pope has the habit of beginning with a Thiruvaachakam hymn every time he writes a letter to his acquaintances in Tamil Nadu. Pope would have certainly included it in the reprints of his translation. Even well-known Tamil scholar ‘Thiruvaachakamani’ K. As he lost his control and crashed down from the higher level of sanyas, he developed a sort of complex, which created a guilty consciousness forcing him to sing this hymn.” To quote Pope, “From the evidence of these verses, we conclude that there were two things from which he suffered.Speaking about the beginning of Christian encroachment, Subbu says, “The Dutch established their trade centres in Pulicat (Pazhaverkaadu) in 1609, Sadras (Sadurangapattinam) in 1647, Nagapattinam in 1660; the British set up shops in Masulipatnam in 1622, Madras in 1639, Cuddalore in 1683 and also in Calcutta; the French got Pondicherry in 1674 and the Danish settled in Tranquebar (Tharangampaadi) in 1620.” He adds, “On one hand the Padires straight away indulged in conversions and on the other hand they started creating rift among the Hindus to divide them.” In the chapter “Trisakthi Publications, Chennai, 2010; pp. As part of the agenda of grabbing political power and converting the population, the Christian missionaries, to destroy the native culture, also indulged in “Inculturation”. The man who laid the foundation of inculturation was the Italian priest Robert de Nobili (1577-1656).He learnt Sanskrit and Tamil, wore saffron robes, sacred thread (attached with a small Cross!There’s probably more proof to that proving the world is flat and if you sail to end of the ocean you fall of the planet.
The following is an exposure by writer Thamizhchelvan showing how Tamil language and society came under the manipulation of the art of inculturation…It is pertinent to note that Indians have not woken up to this threat even after Independence, hence the government is being run by an Italian Catholic via a puppet prime minister, and many policy decisions are being taken in deference to the US administration.Journalist Subbu in (Tamil) says that the Christian priests who landed in Tamil Nadu from foreign lands laid the foundation for Dravidianisation in Tamil Nadu as they knew Indians could not be subjugated as long as Hindu Dharma prevails.Of these, Francis Whyte Ellis or ‘Ellis Durai’ in Tamil, was a Madras-based civil servant in the British government and Samuel Green a doctor in Sri Lanka; both supported missionaries in evangelical causes. Meenakshisundaram termed the era of these evangelists as the “Golden Period” of Tamil in his book, , originally presented as the author’s thesis at the University of Madras, 1966.All the above mentioned missionaries landed in Tamil Nadu with one “holy” aim of converting Tamil Hindus and christianising Tamil Nadu. So it is all the more imperative for us to demolish this myth of Christian contribution to the development of Tamil and bring out the truth.The Portuguese, Dutch, French, German and British establishments landed in places such as Goa, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Bengal and the North-East, etc., in the guise of trade and missions, and started encroaching fast and armed invasions followed suit.
