The same category of citizens who had put their trust in me to rescue them from a force they could not comprehend have now come out of the woodwork to condemn me for practising a religion that is different from theirs I am not an Indian anymore at least in the eyes of the proponents of the Hindu Rashtra Is it coincidence or a well-thought-out plan that the systematic targeting of a small and peaceful community should begin only after the BJP government of Narendra Modi came to power last May “Ghar wapsi” the declaration of Christmas as “Good Governance Day” the attack on Christian churches and schools in Delhi all added to a sense of siege that now afflicts these peaceful people Christians have consistently punched above their weight — not as much as the tiny Parsi community but just as noticeably Education in particular has been their forte Many schools colleges related establishments that teach skills for jobs have been set up and run by Christians They are much in demand Even diehard Hindus have sought admission in such centres of learning and benefited from the commitment and sincerity of Christian teachers Incidentally no one seems to have been converted to Christianity though many many have imbibed Christian values and turned “pseudo-secularist” Hospitals nursing homes hospices for dying cancer patients needing palliative care — many of these are run by Christian religious orders or Christian laymen devoted to the service of humanity Should they desist from doing such humanitarian work for fear of being so admired and loved that a stray beneficiary

per cent of the total populace has been subjected to a series of well-directed body blows If these extremists later turn their attention to Muslims which seems to be their goal they will invite consequences that this writer dreads to imagine I was somewhat relieved when our prime minister finally spoke up at a Christian function in Delhi a few days ago But the outburst of Mohan Bhagwat against Mother Teresa an acknowledged saint — acknowledged by all communities and peoples — has put me back on the hit list Even more so because BJP leaders like Meenakshi Lekhi chose to justify their chief’s remarks What should I do What can I do to restore my confidence I was born in this country So were my ancestors some 5000 or more years ago If my DNA is tested it will not differ markedly from Bhagwat’s It will certainly be the same as the country’s defence minister’s as our ancestors arrived in Goa with the sage Parshuram at the same time Perhaps we share a common ancestor somewhere down the line It is an accident of history that my forefathers converted and his did not I do not and never shall know the circumstances that made it so What does reassure me in these twilight years though is that there are those of the predominant Hindu faith who still remember my small contribution to the welfare of the country of our birth During a recent trip to Rajgurunagar in the Khed taluka of Pune district to visit schools that my NGO The Bombay Mothers and Children Welfare Society had adopted I stopped at Lonavla for idli and tea A group of middle-aged Maharashtrians sitting on the next

Sandeep Ashar | Mumbai | Published: June 30 2017 4:56 am Related News While Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has announced a Rs 34022-crore loan waiver his government continues to be in a bind over tackling part of this waiver Senior government sources said that state-owned banks and other rural banking institutions are hesitant to lower the interest rates for outstanding loans that have turned bad Of the Rs 34022 crore outstanding crop and agriculture term loans official data show that loans worth Rs 12629 crore availed by 1388 lakh farmers were non-performing assets as on March 9 2017 About Rs 10001 crore or nine per cent of all outstanding loans approved for 1013 lakh farmers had been restructured into a medium term loan Banks charge an interest of 12-13 per cent for agriculture term loans After announcing the loan waiver scheme on June 24 the Fadnavis government has been holding talks with banks on the final structure of the waiver and finding ways to minimise the burden on the state treasury Sources said that the CM had initially requested banking institutions to permit compensation for writing off the farm loans in three to four annual installments on an interest-free basis But the bankers opposed waiver of interest The government has since been requesting banks to levy a 6 per cent interest rate for repayment on installment basis While the bankers are willing to consider this for outstanding crop loans they are reluctant to take a hit on the interest amount for the outstanding term loans including the ones that have turned bad without a special permission from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) The banking sector regulator has indicated in the past that it is against the idea of burdening banks for running the populist agenda of debt waivers

loans and lowering of interest rates was made The Congress on Thursday attacked the Fadnavis government over the issue It accused the government of “misleading” and “making exaggerated claims” regarding the loan amount Party leader Sachin Sawant alleged that the farmers whose loans had been restructured had been excluded from the benefit a contention that the ruling party has denied With the BJP being targeted by the opposition and the Shiv Sena over the issue the government is preparing for plan B in case the banks do not cede ground On Wednesday Mungantiwar also requested Jaitley to enhance the state’s borrowing limit by another Rs 15000 crore The government has plans to securitise idle deposits lying with various state-run corporations An independent finance corporation is being
