As per the affidavit filed in the court by MHADA ,100 flats are to be given to Mhada in Marinagar.

As you are all aware Marinagar, is a colony with 99.9 per cent catholics.

Marinagar is 15 % of St. Michaels strength.

Various catholic festivals are held in Marinagar.

Masses are held. It has also been a point where the congregation used to gather for the final Christ the King feast.

Presently 25% of Marinagar is reserved for gardens.

Now as per the new plan the area of the gardens are reduced to 8%.

100 flats are to be given to Mhada so one can imagine what is the total number of flats proposed to be constructed.The catholic fabric of Marinagar will soon disappear.

The sales talk given is that only catholics will be allotted flats by Mhada in Marinagar.

To prove this wrong an application under the RTI was made to Mhada asking them if they had a master list of the dishoused persons who are to be rehoused from the quota of flats given to them by builders based on religion.

As expected the answer is NO.


About The Voice Of Bombay's Catholic Laity

Bombay Laity Ezekiel’s Chapter 3 Task as Watchman 17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. 18 When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for[b] their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. 19 But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself.

  1. The archdiocese Estate office at The Archdiocese of Bombay needs to give a explanation. I am sure and convinced that there is well connected hand behind this deal. I believe that there could be much more to this.Its shameful that catholic church land is being sold off, there is def some one who has made tons of money on this deal.
    Lets get to the bottom. What has our Dear cardinal Oswald Gracias to say, or does he continue to repeat his one liners ” Its pains me to ……..
    How shallow can our administration get.?

  2. Amit says:

    I am not a Christian, but as a citizen of Mumbai I find it very shocking how lands worth hundreds of crores are allegedly sold off for nuts under your noses. And all you guys do is vent your anger on the net. If prayers were always answered there wouldn’t have been any wrongs in this world. God helps those who help themselves. So pull up your sleeves and get down to cleaning the dirt, the way we clean our home toilets! Duniya jhukti hai jhukanewala chahiye!

  3. Thank you Amit for your response. Yes the laity have been fooled for too long by the clergy.When we put the questions to them they put on a act that deserves a Oscar, they say they are unaware. There has been a lot of time spent trying to get our “Dharma Gurus” who i now call “Dharma Sevaks” to understand yet I believe the jungle in the bag is much more attractive to some one along the chain of command. If However there is a claim that the clergy was unaware, then I believe there is some one behind the curtain who has made the clergy who command all the authority, yet know nothing to sign papers for the benefit of some on or people in the chain of command.
    Yes you are right its time that we take the broom and sweep the dirt from under the carpet.
    I am aware that my feedback is causing much discomfort in the Hierarchy of the administration of the Catholic church, yet being a practicing catholic I will stand up for what is right, come what may.
