We, are reading in todays newspapers that the Mumbai Church and its yes men are opposing the DP plan.While there is nothing wrong in opposing the DP if there are genuine problems which I believe there may be , but what is totally wrong is the Churches double standards.
The Churches lose their lands to public amenties- The Church hierarchy opposes and uses the mass and parish councilors to tell people to oppose and collect signatures.
The land on which the churches stands is shown not as a church but as a school- The Church hierarchy opposes and uses the mass and parish councilors to tell people to oppose and collect signatures.
The churches land is being lost for a public road – The Church hierarchy opposes and uses the mass and parish councilors to tell people to oppose and collect signatures.
Now my question is St. Michaels Church which had to give 150 flat owners conveyance(99% of whom are Roman Catholics ) are themselves not giving conveyance which is a statutory obligation as per the provisions of the Maharashtra Ownership Flats Act are themselves guilty of contravention of the law of the land why are these organisations not agitating? Where have all their ethics gone? Do they really believe in Christ?
St. Micheals Church passes a plan which shows three gardens. Flat purchasers ( not tenants) purchase flats on the basis of these plans and pay for these amenities.Two of the said gardens are resold and plans have been passed to build multistoried buildings on them . The Church declares the year of the environment. The Church states that open spaces, gardens etc are to be protected when it is not their property but the same rule does not apply to them when they sell my societies gardens.
On church property in Marinagar, 6 persons who have already been rehoused once are shown as yet to be rehoused . Quinny house which was demolished and on the same spot a seven storied building has been built and all tenants rehoused is shown fraudulently by all beneficiaries as yet to be built.The spot of Quinny House has been fraudulently shifted from its original spot to the place where Salus Infirmatory Stood.This unholy alliance benefits all ie the tenants get bigger flats , the builder gets over one lakh square feet additional fsi and more money. The Church benefits as more the fsi more the money. MHADA officials and BMC officials are all hand in glove. I dont need to say more. Bombay Catholic Sabha books an office in the same building which were sold to us as gardens.
The Church is clean then why is no police complaint being lodged till date?
We, should grow up. The Mumbai Church hierarchy should stop having double standards.Stop fooling people.
A wrong is a wrong irrespective of who the wrong doer is . The church authorities are custodians of the faith and should stop being capitalists.
Ezekiel Chapter 3 verses 16 to 21 states that if we are aware of a wrong it is our duty to point out the said wrong to the wrong doer other wise the said sin will be upon us. The sin of complicity.
Let one person contradict what I am saying .
