ITS ABOUT TIME, SHE HAS ALWAYS BEEN CONSIDERED A SAINT IN MY BOOK …
The Vatican stated today that Mother Teresa will be made a saint in the Roman Catholic Church. There is probably no person I can think of who is more deserving of this honor. Mother Teresa dedicated her life to helping the poor in India and the slums of Calcutta. She was beatified in 2003 as Blessed Teresa of Calcutta for healing an Indian woman’s tumor through divine intervention. However, two miracles are required for sainthood. It appears her second one was when she was involved the curing of a man in Santos, Brazil, with a serious viral brain infection.
I can remember doing a report on Mother Teresa back in high school and just being completely amazed by the conviction and compassion of this woman and her humanity in dealing with the poorest of the poor. In my personal opinion she was always a saint, now its just official.
Mother Teresa Last Speech
Mother Teresa, who dedicated her life to helping India’s poor, will be made a saint in the Roman Catholic Church, the Vatican said Friday
She will likely be canonized in September to coincide with the 19th anniversary of her death and Pope Francis’ Holy Year of Mercy, according to an Italian Catholic newspaper report.
The pontiff marked his 79th birthday on Thursday by approving a decree that the nun had performed a second miracle 11 years after her death, the Vatican confirmed in a statement.
She was beatified in 2003 as Blessed Teresa of Calcutta for healing an Indian woman’s tumor through divine intervention, but full sainthood requires the declaration of two miracles.
Her Missionaries of Charity helped the poor on the streets of the city, now known as Kolkata. She won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979.
LOOK HOW THEY TREATED AN ILLEGAL ALIEN RAPIST IN INDIA ….
A mob consisting of thousands stormed a jail in the northeastern Indian city of Dimapur, seized the accused rapist, marched him through the streets and then lynched him. Syed Sirf Khan, accused by locals of being an illegal migrant from Bangladesh, was arrested on February 24 on suspicion of raping a woman from a Naga tribal community. It would appear that the Dimapur saved the formalities of a trial or incarceration by using mob justice and taking care of the matter themselves.
After the rape accused was caught, he was stripped naked, paraded and beaten up by a mob while the police personnel remained silent spectators, security sources said. The accused later died of severe beatings after being paraded naked from Central Jail to the Clock Tower Junction in the heart of Dimapur.
The body was dragged and later strung on the fencing under the Clock Tower Junction where armed personnel were seen standing with the crowd, security sources pointed out while clarifying that a total of 186 prisoners were lodged in the prison. Three convicts among the prisoners also tried to escape, taking advantage of the melee, but were later caught by the prison personnel, security sources said.
Here is an interesting back story of the events in how it relates to illegals. The local residents told this newspaper that the incident was a manifestation of the prevailing tension between the suspected illegal immigrants and local Naga residents of the area. Pointing out that large number minority youths, who came in search of jobs and livelihood to the state, got married to Naga girls and settled in the area, they said this creating a fear of demographic invasion among the tribal population of the state. But I guess if this same illegal came to the United States, he would have been provided a drivers license, pathway to citizenship, amnesty and income tax refunds all at the expense of John Q. Public. Also, had he raped some one in America, Obama’s policies would have just have allowed him to remain here and not be deported. The point here is not to justify mob rule, although dealing with a rapist like this was swift justice. The point is that don’t ever let anyone tell you that the US treats illegals poorly. If anything, these days they are treated better than American, law abiding citizens.
A mob of thousands stormed a jail in the northeastern Indian city of Dimapur, seized a prisoner accused of rape, paraded him through the streets and beat him to death before they could be stopped by police gunfire, a police official said on Friday.
The dead man, identified by the authorities as Syed Sirf Khan, was accused by locals of being an illegal migrant from Bangladesh and had been arrested on Feb. 24 on suspicion of raping a woman from a Naga tribal community the day before.
How the mob was able to overcome armed police officers on Thursday at the jail in Dimapur, the commercial hub of Nagaland State, was not clear on Friday. The top police official in Nagaland, L. L. Doungel, said that because there were a number of students wearing uniforms in the crowd, the police did not want to resort to violence.
“There would have been a lot of casualties,” Mr. Doungel said. “That was one reason. The mob was in the thousands.”
Ram Singh, one of the suspects of the gang rape and murder of a 23 year old Indian woman, was found dead in his jail cell in New Delhi’s Tihar Jail. According to accounts Singh hanged himself from the ceiling with his own clothes. Singh was one of five men [sixth suspect in a juvenile] that have been accused of kidnapping, rape and murder. Singh was the driver of the bus aboard which several men brutally raped a 23-year-old woman on December 16. She later died from her injuries. All had pleaded not guilty. The crime grew international attention and outrage. The heinous crime has prompting widespread debate over the way the country handles sexual assaults and the treatment of women in Indian society.
One of the five men accused in the gang rape of a 23-year-old Indian woman—a crime that received widespread international attention—was found dead in a jail here, his lawyer said Monday.
Ram Singh was found dead at Tihar Jail, Delhi’s main prison, at around 5:15 a.m., said his lawyer, V.K. Anand.
Mr. Singh, 33 years old, and four other men were being held at the jail during their trial at a special court in Delhi on charges that include kidnapping, rape and murder. The five men have pleaded not guilty.
“He hanged himself [from] the ceiling with his own clothes,” said Sunil Gupta, spokesman for Tihar Jail.
However, Ram Singh’s lawyer and parents claim he was murdered. They stated, “there was no reason for him to commit suicide”. Oh of course not, he was only being accused of a crime where is found guilty, he could be facing the death penalty. Their trial began in February. If convicted, the men could face the death penalty. Also, a sixth suspect is 17 and will be tried separately in juvenile court.
