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.

T Minus 14: Mega-Rich Donors Keep Democrats Competitive, Races Tight

Oct 21 2014 9:41am CDT | Source: Big Government

With just two weeks until the midterm elections, polls suggest many Senate races remain within the margin of error. While momentum seems to have shifted to Republicans, the party is still struggling to lock-in victories in a number of states carried by Mitt Romney. The political map has not expanded in the way one would expect given Obama's disastrous approval ratings. A significant reason for this is the big money edge enjoyed by Democrats. The party of Andrew Jackson is awash in contrib ...
