Comment posted General Discussion by Paul Xavier.
MGS is saying that Namboothiris came to Kerala much later, so the story of “St. Thomas converting Namboothiris is not reliable”. Why shouldn’t he consider other options. St. Thomas could have converted some other people, like Jews, Romans, Greeks (Yes, they were here, evidently!) or at least indigenous Dravidian people? How can he totally dismiss the substantiated existence of pre-Portuguese Christianity in Kerala?
I have seen a news article that MGS is justifying ‘Saffronisation’ of education. This itself is enough for understanding to which camp he belongs.
Whether some church people accept him or not doesn’t count. After all, these church people don’t even accept each other.
