Your contention that Arundhati's mother has contributed a lot to women's upliftment in the south is not correct..
Traditionally Christian families especially Syrian Catholics in Kerala,, when their daughters get married, used to give their portion of the family property to THEM at the time of marriage.(Some husbands used to insist upon this).Arundhati's mother Mary Roy married a Bengali Hindu(she is divorced now).She went upto SC pointing out that even if the girls got their property share at the time of marriage,they atill have a right to what is left of the property.SC in its wisdom decreed in her favour..All daughters who have got their share of property at the time of marriage started sueing the family for their rights.This opened a pandora's box.Rifts started between brothers and sisters in an otherwise closely knit families.This was the ultimate result of her action.Many Christians regret it.
Now Arundhati and her mother are not on talking terms even.

Thanks for your email, plus its good you have you back as a contributor.
1) IAC is unabashedly a "Hindutva" organisation with a lineage derive from secular Hindutva movements and with a Swadeshi philosophy. Let us recall clauses 3.005, 4.002 and 4.003 of the IAC Charter we drafted together which are specifically relevant
The IAC movement supports whatever rights and laws different communities may demand for themselves, provided they do not clash with the interests of other communities or the national interest and are extended to all citizens. Hearty and organic union in different communities must be conducted under a Common Civil Code.
In the spiritual domain, the IAC movement aims at establishing that this world is real and the manifestation of the one individual soul, the supreme source of all power, all knowledge and all beauty. IAC maintains that every living being possesses the inherent power to communicate directly without the need for intermediaries and at any time or in any place or manner.
Its well known that Arundhati's Roy's father was a "Hindu" (more on that in some other post) and her mother was a "Syrian Christian". They were lawfully married ("organic union in different communities") and there was no question of Roy's father taking or demanding any "DOWRY" as it is prohibited in the pure Hinduism he followed.
Not having received dowry, Mary Roy demanded her equal rights in the family property under the secular India Succession Act 1925. And apparently she finally received justice only in 2011.
So as its not clear to me why you are upset with by Mary Roy's legal actions if we all seem to want a Uniform Civil Code to secure a secular Hindustan, here follow a few queries to you :
1) Should women not have equal rights with men ?
2) If not, should women get special treatment over men, or vice-versa ?
3) Are UCC laws like the Indian Succession Act or Special Marriages Act 1954 not far better than Nehruvian hodge-podges like "Hindu Succession Act" or "Hindu Marriage Act 1955".
(a) Should IAC say that Hindu women should be effectively married under a 150 year old British law which was drafted exclusively for non-Hindus (ie. Keshub Chandra Sen's so-called "Brahmo Samaj of India") ?
(b) Should women be compelled to marry within their own community and be automatically disinherited if they marry outside it ?
4) Should there still be some antiquated concepts in law like
5) Are you in favour of the present Indian legal system and its
judges, advocate mafias AND "TAARIKH PE TAARIKH PE TAARIKH".
Since you seem to think I am pro-Christian, let me tell you, that as an Upacharya of the religion whose founder in 1857 publicly told visiting proselytiseing Christian Missionaries (the Rev. Charles Dall from Harvard) to get the f*** out of his house and not speak the name of Jesus Christ within its walls
(please read this article carefully, as a Kolkattan you will appreciate its subtleties
If you know history, you will know that this gentleman (Rev. Charles Dall) is the 'harami' who thereupon set in place a chain of events which have eventually resulted in the "Boston Brahmins", many of whom are actually secretly Jewish, controlling India today through their puppet organisations, like the RSS (who, like Gandhi, were nothing but British quislings during the Indian Independence movement), whose members include Namo and Kejriwal - who have both completed their so-called "officer training courses" which includes familiarisation trips to the USA and other Western countries for the star performers, and with stints at cabal front organisations like Mother Teresa or Ramakrishna Mission (in Kejriwal's case both) as part of their "officer" training.
In any case, neither Namo or Kejriwal were the first to benefit from these US religious proselytiseing groups (who are passing off some fake version of Hinduism, designed in USA, which is Christianity and nothing but Christianity). 120 years ago "Swami" Vivekananda was extensively trained as a Christian imperialist operative in USA for 3 years and, in the RK Mission's own affidavit in the SC, had abandoned his Hinduism and returned as a non-Hindu --> to propagate a manufactured persistent myth that "Christ=Krishna" (Herod=Kansa) and vice-versa and how Hindu India and Christian USA must stand together as one nation under God against the Muslim hordes and palm it off as "Ramakrishna-ism". In fact Vivekananda was a Rev. Charles Dall protege from start to finish, and this entire fake "Vivekananda nationalism" is scripted to break India into little Christian enclaves which can hold out against Muslims and the "Godless".
Does anybody, especially Arvind Kejriwal, deny that he has received huge amounts of money from foreign sources ?
Please remember, the last time the USA did so it was to get India to detonate a US gifted fusion device (supposedly to get India into the P-5 as a nuclear power), which China promptly check-mated by elevating Pakistan to the same club, then they made us fight a "war" with Pakistan and ensured that their Congress returned to power.
