Complaint filed against Goa activist over vulgar image of 'Christ'

Jan 14 2013, 9:50am CST | by

Panaji, Jan 14 (IANS) A digitally altered image posted on Facebook allegedly of Jesus Christ has prompted the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Goa to file a police complaint against a lawyer and activist who had uploaded it on the social networking site.

Panaji, Jan 14 — A digitally altered image posted on Facebook allegedly of Jesus Christ has prompted the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Goa to file a police complaint against a lawyer and activist who had uploaded it on the social networking site.

The complaint lodged with Director General of Police Kishen Kumar has sought action against activist Aires Rodrigues for hurting religious sentiments by uploading an image of "Christ" showing the middle finger, Goa BJP's vice-president Wilfred Mesquita told reporters here Monday.

"This is a vulgar picture of Jesus Christ that he has uploaded in order to make a point against the BJP. Such use of religious imagery is aimed at creating hatred with a community," Mesquita said.

Rodrigues has in the past taken on both the Congress as well as the BJP government over issues like governance and overspending.

The photo was uploaded days after Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar reportedly said that in his role as chief minister, he was suffering like Christ himself.

"The stoic silence by the Church on this outrageous and demeaning comparison by the chief minister is deafening. A very sorry state of affairs," Rodrigues said in his controversial Facebook post.

Rodrigues said that he was himself a born Catholic and the post was "without any malice and should offend none".

"Nowhere in the post is it said that the picture accompanying the post was that of Jesus Christ," the lawyer activist said.

Blacks turn on Democrats in new video

Oct 28 2014 3:43pm CDT | Source: WND

Several black Chicago activists who are part of RebelPundit.com have made a video that blasts black-on-black crime – but not the type of wallet-taking, knife-wielding black-on-black crime so many see. They’re talking about blacks in power, especially Democrats, doing crime against blacks who are not. And they got a fast endorsement from talk-radio icon Rush Limbaugh. On Tuesday’s program, he said, “These guys are in Chicago. They’re nailin’ it. They ...
