Wikipedia:WikiProject Hindu mythology[edit]

Have you visited the Wikipedia:WikiProject Hindu mythology. We have a category dedicated to Category:Hindu mythology. maybe your could help in improve the articles and give references and sources for them.--Dangerous-Boy 18:18, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

xyz Kingdom[edit]

Why did you create so many articles named "something Kingdom" that overlap with other articles that already exist? For instance, Magadha Kingdom and Magadha, Yaksha Kingdom and Yaksha, etc. - Nat Krause(Talk!) 04:19, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

Ah, yes, I understand what you are doing. Two things: 1) I think it would be a good idea to make sure that new articles are integrated with the existing articles, so people can get all the information about them in one place. So, I think it's a great idea to document the many kingdoms mentioned in Mahabharata, but I still think Magadha and Magadha Kingdom should be one article. 2) If there are kingdoms that we don't know much about, especially if they are only mentioned in Mahabharata, maybe they don't need separate articles. Maybe there should one article that discusses numerous obscure kingdoms. - Nat Krause(Talk!) 03:16, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

Ancient kingdoms[edit]

You have done an excellent job on Ancient Indian kingdoms. Interested in ancient Indian history, I find it really interesting to read. Kudos. Your work reminds me on S.L. Bhyrappa, a novelist in Kannada. Gnanapiti 17:30, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

I just wanted to let you know that I have requested speedy deletion of Pushkara Tirta because it is a redirect to itself, and I have been unable to find any other article on Wikipedia that appears to be a potential target of the redirect.

Kuru and Yadu familytree[edit]

Hello Jijithnr!

my name is Made Adiputra (please call me "Madé"), I am Indonesian Wikipedian, can't speak english well as I am not a native speaker. I have interest to Mahabharata. I have created Kuru and Yadu Familytree for Wikipedia Indonesia (see here).

It has references from Bhagawad Gita (from my Indonesian-Bhagawad Gita version) and Mahabharata (Adi parva).

It is corect? or wrong?

Made Adiputra 08:26, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

Good work Sir[edit]

Hello, Im really happy to see your work. its really sad to hear Indians themself telling Ramayana Mahabharata mythical and even doubting the existance of Rama, Krishna etc. I wonder nobody never even thought of telling same about Budha or Chrst, such is the power of British educational system and the Marxist(read ant-hindu) historians. I sincerely appreciate your works. Are you at SAT/ISRO Ahmedabad? Sreekanthv 10:02, 4 October 2007 (UTC)

Orphaned non-free media (Image:GeometricLogo.jpg)[edit]

Nuvola apps important blue.svg Thanks for uploading Image:GeometricLogo.jpg. The media description page currently specifies that it is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, it is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the media was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that media for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of 'image' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "Image" from the dropdown box. Note that all non-free media not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. BetacommandBot (talk) 20:19, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

File source problem with File:Kasmira.jpg[edit]

Thank you for uploading File:Kasmira.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, please add a link to the page from which it was taken, together with a brief restatement of the website's terms of use of its content. If the original copyright holder is a party unaffiliated with the website, that author should also be credited. Please add this information by editing the image description page.

If the necessary information is not added within the next days, the image will be deleted. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem.

Please refer to the image use policy to learn what images you can or cannot upload on Wikipedia. Please also check any other files you have uploaded to make sure they are correctly tagged. Here is a list of your uploads. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.  Ronhjones  (Talk) 23:30, 22 August 2011 (UTC)

Understanding "Epic India" Images[edit]

Fantastic work with the maps of "epic india"!! Your work on wikipedia in general is fantastic. I am building a chart of "Indic Traditions" (cut off on the ends here [1]), and would like to create a map using your work. I'm not clear - what sources have you used? Did you do the original research, or did you use some reference to the ancient literature? Also, what program did you use? Could we have a link to the file? I'd love to make a GIS version, so that it can be viewed in Google Earth/maps, etc... Thanks

Speedy deletion nomination of Kerala Kingdom[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Kerala Kingdom, requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the page appears to have no meaningful content or history, and the text is unsalvageably incoherent. If the page you created was a test, please use the sandbox for any other experiments you would like to do.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Akhil Bharathan 11:08, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

Kerala Kingdom[edit]

I checked Mahabharata (Book 1, Chapter 177), given in th article, from Mahabharatha but was unable to see any reference to Kerakas, Udra-Keralas, Keralas, Kerala or Kerala Kingdom. Since there is no varifiable reference provided I recommend deletion of these paragraphs. If anyone disagree please provide varifiable references (Prefers links to the exact section, it won't be difficult as there exists a very good number of online copy of Mahabharatha). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Akhil.bharathan (talkcontribs) 14:22, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

Thoma's Twin Brother[edit]

Dear Jijithnr, I very much enjoyed reading your user page and ideas. Be well and blessed. I understand you have immense interest in Thomas in India . Was he accompanied by Jesus (being a twin brother)... as we read :

"“And the King requested the groomsmen to leave the bridal chamber. When all had left, and the doors were shut, the bridegroom raised the curtain of the bridal chamber, that he might bring the bride to himself. And he saw the Lord Jesus talking with the bride, and having the appearance of Judas Thomas, the apostle, who shortly before had blessed them, and gone out from them ; and he says to him, " Didst thou not go out before them all ? And how is it that thou art here now? And the Lord said to him, " I am not Judas, sur-named Thomas; I am his brother." And the Lord sat down on the bed, …

I would very much value your views. Be well and blessed my friend. (Dr Muhammad Ali)

Historical St Thomas[edit]

This is an automated message from MadmanBot. I have performed a web search with the contents of Historical St Thomas, and it appears to include material copied directly from http://www.christianity-guide.com/christianity/st._thomas_the_apostle.htm.

It is possible that the bot is confused and found similarity where none actually exists. If that is the case, you can remove the tag from the article. The article will be reviewed to determine if there are any copyright issues.

If substantial content is duplicated and it is not public domain or available under a compatible license, it will be deleted. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material. You may use such publications as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. See our copyright policy for further details.

Your contributed article, Historical St Thomas[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

Hello, I noticed that you recently created a new page, Historical St Thomas. First, thank you for your contribution; Wikipedia relies solely on the efforts of volunteers such as you. Unfortunately, the page you created covers a topic on which we already have a page – Thomas the Apostle. Because of the duplication, your article has been tagged for speedy deletion. Please note that this is not a comment on you personally and we hope you will continue helping to improve Wikipedia. If the topic of the article you created is one that interests you, then perhaps you would like to help out at Thomas the Apostle – you might like to discuss new information at the article's talk page.

If you think the article you created should remain separate, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Additionally if you would like to have someone review articles you create before they go live so they are not nominated for deletion shortly after you post them, allow me to suggest the article creation process and using our search feature to find related information we already have in the encyclopedia. Try not to be discouraged. Wikipedia looks forward to your future contributions. Cindy(talk) 06:26, 7 June 2013 (UTC)

Hello, Jijithnr, and thank you for your contributions!

An article you worked on Iswar Sharan, appears to be directly copied from http://ishwarsharan.wordpress.com/about-us/. Please take a minute to make sure that the text is freely licensed and properly attributed as a reference, otherwise the article may be deleted.

Proposed deletion of Iswar Sharan[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Iswar Sharan has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this newly created biography of a living person will be deleted unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within ten days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. Bihco (talk) 12:34, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Iswar Sharan[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Iswar Sharan requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section G12 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article or image appears to be a clear copyright infringement. This article or image appears to be a direct copy from http://ishwarsharan.wordpress.com/about-us/. For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material, and as a consequence, your addition will most likely be deleted. You may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences. This part is crucial: say it in your own words. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously and persistent violators will be blocked from editing.

If the external website or image belongs to you, and you want to allow Wikipedia to use the text or image — which means allowing other people to modify it — then you must verify that externally by one of the processes explained at Wikipedia:Donating copyrighted materials. If you are not the owner of the external website or image but have permission from that owner, see Wikipedia:Requesting copyright permission. You might want to look at Wikipedia's policies and guidelines for more details, or ask a question here.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. Cindy(talk) 13:38, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Abbanes until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Users may edit the article during the discussion, including to improve the article to address concerns raised in the discussion. However, do not remove the article-for-deletion notice from the top of the article. Stalwart111 05:41, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

June 2013[edit]

Information icon Please refrain from making unconstructive edits to Wikipedia, as you did at Thomas the Apostle. Your edits appear to be disruptive and have been reverted or removed.

  • If you are engaged in an article content dispute with another editor then please discuss the matter with the editor at their talk page, or the article's talk page. Alternatively you can read Wikipedia's dispute resolution page, and ask for independent help at one of the relevant notice boards.
  • If you are engaged in any other form of dispute that is not covered on the dispute resolution page, please seek assistance at Wikipedia's Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents.

Please ensure you are familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines, and please do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive, until the dispute is resolved through consensus. Continuing to edit disruptively could result in loss of editing privileges. Thank you. The fact that the article does not conform to your literal reading of the Acts of Thomas does not make the article "non-neutral" and your tagging it as such is clearly pointy; aimed at making a point in defiance of those who have suggested your related original research elsewhere be deleted. Stalwart111 05:55, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

To Stalwart111. Christian falsehood has destroyed that great Greek civilization and Greece is now devoid of the grace of Apollo and devoid of heroes like Achilles. A dozen of pro Christian editors including you have ganged up and are deleting my articles, using the pretext of upholding Wikipedia rules. Remember that you are supporting falsehood and are trying to prevent the truth from coming out. Be assured that despite all your attempts truth by its inherent property of self-revelation will eventually reveal itself and falsehood will be defeated. Jijithnr (talk) 10:30, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
You need to go back and have a proper look at my contributions if you think I edit with a "pro Christian" bias. I have an interest in Christian history and the history of the Catholic Church in Europe but I have created and contributed to a good many articles that the "Church" would be horrified by - gay cardinals, wiccanism, apocryphal gospels and more. The difference between you and I is that I base my edits on what reliable sources have said about events, people and places and not what I personally believe about those things. I attempt to remove things from Wikipedia that are contrary to Wikipedia rules, yes. Want your theories to be taken seriously? Find some proper reliable sources that agree with you and start citing them. Simply spamming quotes from the apocryphal Acts of Thomas into Wikipedia won't get you very far. It isn't, in and of itself, a reliable source just because it happens to agree with your world view. If you continue down this path you'll end up at WP:ANI and you'll probably end up blocked, which will be a not particularly productive end to your work. Why go down that path? Read what the other editors are telling you and you'll find a way to contribute much of what you want to contribute. If you think I'm telling you lies, take a look at the history and talk page of Roza Bal and the history of the Gospel of Jesus' Wife. Stalwart111 11:07, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
You seems to be a reasonable man and I exclude you from the list of editors with a pro-Christian bias. But I would really like to see how long your article Gospel of Jesus' Wife is going to last as it stays now. I know pro-Christian lobby is forming an army of Christian evangelist freelancers to edit Wikipedia articles and remove contents that are not in line with the dominant Christan view. I am a PhD student and I do not have much time to edit and edit Wikipedia articles for eternity and my recent edits are due to the hope that some freequent Wikipedians would pick up to restore some balance in the articles I see as having blatant POV violations. You neither allow me to edit it nor create another article which can balance its POV, stating rules like POV-FORKING, Original Research, Copyright violation etc. I hope I can entrust you with the task of finding a solution to this problem by creating a better article, by properly adhering to all Wikipedia rules. If you can do justice to this problem, one billion Hindus will be endebted to you. The St.Thomas Apostle page is abusing the Hindu community by accusing them as murderers of St.Thomas, where as it is very clear that St.Thomas never came to India but died in Indo-Parthia (now in Pakistan). The South Indian Hindus were the ones who gave assylum to the Christians who came here fleeing thier persecution in Iran in 4th century CE. But the South Indian Christians are not ashamed of abusing their Hindu brethren, dispite this magnanimity and mercy shown to them. Instead they are trying to destroy Hinduism in India by planting false stories, like the St. Thomas in Mylapore story, Jesus in Kashmir story, Adam & Eve in Srilanka story, by editing Hindu Vedas (saying Rig Vedic hymn Purusha sukta is actually praising Jesus!), by copying Hindu festivals (Shivaratri as Mishiha Ratri, the night of Jesus and many other activities abusing and hurting Hindus. Please do something about it. Please!!! Putting POV in St.Thomas page is only a symptom. Instead of focusing on the symptom, cure the greater problem. Jijithnr (talk) 11:34, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
Unfortunately, solving that "greater problem" is not really the role of Wikipedia, because Wikipedia is not the place to right great wrongs. Trust me when I tell you that the fringe theorists who support the views you are concerned about (like Jesus in Kashmir, for example) are having a pretty tough time injecting their POV into Wikipedia too. The reality is the Thomas the Apostle article "attacks" Hindus no more than the Jesus article attacks Jews or Romans. People from Rome aren't tarred with that brush (in fact the Catholic Church is based there) and only the wackiest Christian fundamentalists blame modern Jews for the death of Jesus. Stalwart111 12:19, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for starting your point with 'Unfortunately'. Your position reminds me of the Mahabharata hero Bhishma who sided with Adharma (falsehood) due to various compulsions and family ties though he was highly concerned with upholding Dharma (truth). You are obiviously winning this battle but loosing the greater War. The credibility of Wikipedia is fast declining because of its blatant neutrality violations, especially in articles dealing with history and religion. I can tell you this, because in scholary community, if you are submitting a thesis, not a single Wikipedia article is admissible as scholary, thanks to various Wikipedia editors and administrators who abuse various rules of Wikipedia to hide their bias and erode Wikipedia's credibility. Scholars are not affected by Wikipedia articles. Yet I bothered to edit because its target is the common man, in the case of Thomas the Apostle article, the poor Hindus of Tamilnadu who live in the streets. Jijithnr (talk) 12:52, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
Well, I would question how many "poor", "street-dwelling" Tamilnadu would have access to Wikipedia, let alone to the English version, though I'm sure many have tried to use the text contained therein (or at least related material) for their own means. But the point I would make is that Wikipedia is user-generated and while it might require reliable sources, it doesn't even consider itself a reliable source, and with good reason. I'm not surprised lecturers and academics don't considered it reliable. That relationship is a one-way street - we will accept their scholarly work as sources, but they won't accept our work in return. I, personally, think that's a good thing. It should be that way. Wikipedia has never been a credible source of scholarly material, so I disagree with the idea that it's reputation as such is "declining". Stalwart111 13:07, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

Warning[edit]

Please stop your disruptive editing, as you did at Talk:Thomas the Apostle. Your edits have been reverted or removed.

Do not continue to make edits that appear disruptive until the dispute is resolved through consensus. Continuing to edit disruptively may result in your being blocked from editing. The text was removed as a copyright violation. That applies to talk pages too. Do not reinstate it. Stalwart111 10:54, 17 June 2013 (UTC)

Jijithnr (talk) 11:46, 17 June 2013 (UTC):- This is the content you have deleted. What is the copyright violation here?:-
  • And I have deleted it again. You don't deal with a copyright violation by posting it again and asking, "is this it?" The whole thing is (word-for-word) copied from this blog. It doesn't matter if it pertains to the same thing or is a commentary on things at Wikipedia. If you want to say those things again, you need to do so in your own words. You can't copy the work of others, even if others have (foolishly) done so in the past. Other people's prior stupidity should not be an excuse for our own. Stalwart111 12:29, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
You are not getting it. This content is part of Wikipedia itself. See here:- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Thomas_the_Apostle#Historicity_of_St._Thomas_controversial_and_disputed. If you find it in http://ishwarsharan.wordpress.com/chapters/chapter-four/ it is because that blog is talking about this particular edit War in Wikipedia Thomas the Apostle page that is going on since 2008. Ths source is Wikipedia itself and Ishwar Sharan's blog is talking about it and hence qouted it. It does not come under copyright violation!!! Jijithnr (talk) 12:34, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
No, the section included the introduction from that blogger before the quote from User:Vena Varcas (edit | talk | history | links | watch | logs). You can quote another editor (though those are covered by their own attribution copyright) but you can't include word-for-word commentary from someone else. The quote on that page is easy to link to, so you're better off doing that. There's no need for it to be at the top of the talk page, especially since you can't use the copyright introduction anyway. Besides which, that introduction suggests a group of people used a Wikipedia username to collectively edit and push a POV. It would be unwise to draw attention to it... for their sake. Beyond anything else, you are clearly a proficient writer (being a PhD student, if nothing else) so why rely on other people's 5-year-old commentary anyway? You are capable of making your own argument (which is better and more up-to-date than theirs anyway) - I would suggest you do so. I've managed to get more coherent material out of you in the last half a day on this talk page than anything else you've produced at AFD or in your articles or on talk pages. I imagine that's because you were stressed and upset and here you're putting forward logical argument and addressing specific queries. Isn't that more rewarding anyway? Stalwart111 12:52, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
This is not about me. I being upset or stressed or getting killed is not significant. All I care is that 1 billion Hindus should not be blamed unnecessarily using a fringe theory of St.Thomas's arrival in South India and his murder at the hands of a Hindu while the historical fact remains that Hindus instead gave asylum to the Christians who came to South India fleeing from their persecutors in Iran and that St. Thomas, with what ever limited historicity that can be attributed to him, was executed in Indo-Parthia (now in Pakistan). Certainly an injustice is being done to Hindus here. Certainly injustice is being done to Ishwar Sharan who braved to expose this truth in front of an army of Christian missionaries staking his life. It is cruel. When I see people like you using Wikipedia rules to silence him and his well wishers, I find you nothing better than some lawyers who use various laws which are themselves right but use them to protect great criminals and to punish innocents. You may be winning but what good is that victory? You are contributing to suppress truth from coming out and to sustain centuries old falsehood. Jijithnr (talk) 17:28, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
People like me? I'm not trying to silence anyone, certainly not Ishwar Sharan who I've never heard of. What interest would I have in doing so? You need to lay off the personal attacks and start to realise that most people volunteer here to contribute to an encyclopedia, not to push some agenda or poromote a POV. Your campaign to insert your personal view of the world into Wikipedia, without sources, won't get very far. Not because people are trying to "suppress" you, but because you are simply going about it the wrong way. Plenty of people have given you advice on how to move forward. I suggest you take their advice, rather than continuing to suggest some bizarre conspiracy theory. Stalwart111 17:55, 17 June 2013 (UTC)
You may not be directly involved, but your actions are leading to the suppression of truth. Besides making an all out war on me and trying to educate me about the rules of Wikipedia, you have not raised a finger about the blatant POV in Thomas the Apostle page which abuses 1 billion Hindus using a fringe theory that St.Thomas visited south India and was murdered by a Hindu, as if showing their gratitude for giving asylum to these Christians who fled Persia fleeing persecution. You are dismissing my contributions to St.Thomas pages as my individual point of view. But the fact remains that same point of view is expressed by many Christian scholars themselves and also by several Hindus who are victimized by this propaganda. All of these people are not logging in and expressing their point of view in Wikipedia because 1) they do not know how to do it in Wikipedia, 2) they do not find it worth to waste their time in Wikipedia because contributing to Wikipedia is like writing on top of flowing water, with the hope that it will be preserved. Jijithnr (talk) 04:33, 18 June 2013 (UTC)
There's no war and as I explained earlier, the article in question "abuses" Hindus in the same way that the article Jesus "abuses" Jews or Romans - not much at all. If your views on Thomas the Apostle or the Acts of Thomas are shared by "many Christian scholars" then quote them and cite them. Quoting the Acts of Thomas with your own personal interpretation won't work because you are not a reliable source and your interpretation is original research. It's got nothing to do with the "rules of Wikipedia" until you decide to break them. At that point, you don't need me to educate you. So far I've contributed to one AFD, started one other and have reverted edits to a single article because of a copyright violation. And in an area I really don't care that much about (most of my work revolves around 17th century European Church history). I'm just as happy not to come here and be attacked - I can happily limit myself to reverting your POV OR and just template-warning you for it. Eventually you'll be blocked anyway.

Christian Scholars on St.Thomas[edit]

Listed below is the list of Christian Scholars who have stated that St.Thomas domain of activity was in Parthia (Iran).

  • Origen Century : 3rd century (185-254?), quoted in Eusebius; Church represented: Alexandrian/ Greek Biographical. Christian Philosopher, b-Egypt, Origen taught with great acclaim in Alexandria and then in Caesarea. Eusebius, Hist. Eccl., 3.1; Patrologia Graeca, Migne Edn., 20.215; Patrologia Latina, Migne, 21.478. He is the first known writer to record the casting of lots by the Apostles. Origen original work has been lost; but his statement about Parthia falling to Thomas has been preserved by Eusebius. “Origen, in the third chapter of his Commentary on Genesis, says that, according to tradition, Thomas’s allotted field of labour was Parthia". Farquhar, p. 30. 20th Century Discussions : Perumalil, pp. 50,51.E. R. Hambye, “Saint Thomas and India”, The Clergy Monthly 16 (1952). Comes, S. J., “Did St. Thomas Really come to India?”, in Menachery (Ed).) STCEI, II. Farquhar, pp. 30,31
  • The Acts of Judas Thomas: 2nd/3rd century (c. 180-230) [1] Gist of the testimony: The Apostles cast lots as to where they should go, and to Thomas, twin brother of Jesus, fell India. Thomas was taken to king Gondophares as an architect and carpenter by Habban. The journey to India is described in detail. After a long residence in the court he ordained leaders for the Church, and left in a chariot for the kingdom of Mazdei. There, after performing many miracles, he dies a martyr. Acts of Thomas
  • Eusebius of Caesarea: 4th century (d. 340); Church Represented: Alexandrian/Greek Biographical Patrologia Graeca (Migne), 19-24., 20.215. Quoting Origen, Eusebius says: “When the holy Apostles and disciples of our Saviour were scattered over all the world, Thomas, so the tradition has it, obtained as his portion Parthia….” J.C.Panjikaran, Christianity in Malabar w.s.r.t. The St. Thomas Christians of the Syro-Malabar Rite, Orientalia Christiana, VI, 2 (23), Roma I, April 1926, p.99 esp. for reference to Pantaenus’ Indian visit.
  • Clement of Alexandria: 3rd century (d.c. 235); Church represented: Alexandrian/Greek Biographical Note : Greek Theologian, b. Athens, 150. Clement of Alexandria makes a passing reference to St. Thomas’ Apostolate in Parthia. This agrees with the testimony which Eusebius records about Pantaenus visit to India.

Ishwar Sharan[edit]

Stalwart, if you have not known about Ishwar Sharan, it will be a good idea to know about him, since you seems to be a good scholar on Christianity and was bold enough to create an article like Gospel of Jesus' Wife and successfully sustain it resisting vandalism (something beyond my ability, considering the time at my disposal). He has become a great scholar on Church history, thanks to the continous attack on him by Christian missionaries both intellectually and physically. You can read him here:- http://ishwarsharan.wordpress.com. After reading his book, The Myth of St.Thomas and the Mylapore Shiva temple, if you come across any fault in his collection of facts, please let me know. I will be eager to understand it from a scholar like you.

Jews, Romans and Hindus[edit]

You are comparing the "abuse" of Jews in the Jesus page with the "abuse" of Hindus in Thomas the Apostle page considering both as similar in nature. Both are different. Hindus were friendly towards the Christians when they came to India fleeing the torture at the hands of Zoroastrian rulers of Iran, while the Jews were hostile towards the nascent creed of Christians. The Jews of Israel rejected Jesus. The act of abusing a friendly community (Hindus) who gave you asylum by calling them murderers of a Christian apostle is one notch above the act of abusing an enemy like community (Jews). Hindus are 1,083 million (1 billion plus) in number while the Jews are 15 million Jews. Numbers don't really matter but abusing Hindus are like abusing 1/6th of the human population, and when somebody is doing it for no fault of theirs it becomes hard to digest. Hindus have the track record of protecting the Christians persecuted by the Parsis, Jews persecuted by Christians and Muslims and finally the Parsis persecuted by the Muslims, giving asylum to all of these communities in India, when they came to live in the midst of Hindus fleeing their native lands in Israel and Persia. It is not in the characteristics of any Hindu to kill a Christian apostle by back-stabbing him while engaged in prayer. As regards the comparison of Romans and Hindus, Romans are already history, while Hindus are a live community that has, for the last 2000 years braved all the persecution by Abrahamic religions. When you abuse Hindus, it is felt on people who are alive with their culture and tradition intact unlike when you abuse Romans.
