Pattanam Not Muzuris - 200 crore Public Money spent to prove the myth

Archaeological Survy of INDIA -KODUNGALLUR WAS UNDER SEA Till Early 9TH Century CE.
 


ASI Excavated Kodungallur in 1947, under P.Anujan Achan  and found articles of 14th century or later only. KERALA CHURCHMEN AND POLITCIANS put on pressure showing the above referred Copper plate and wanted ASI do more detailed Survey  Archaeological Survey of India under Highly Reputed Archaeologists Dr.K.V.Raman went for excavation , K.V.Raman and K.V.Saundararajan (1969-70). Archaeological sites such as  
Cheraman Parambu 
Thiruvanchikulam 
 Karuppadanna 
Mathilakam 
 Kilatali 
  Thrikkulasekharapuram etc.,  provided cultural remains of iron and copper tools, glass beads, semi precious stones, ceramics of dull red ware, celadon ware roof tiles, earthen lamps and coins. They are all dated between 900-1100 A.D...   

Dr.K.V.Raman wrote a book on his excavations in Tamil and has given details about Kodungallur excavations in each of his locations and all locations in and around Kodungallore (Cranganore) had same type and that Human Habitation took place in Later chera period in 9th Century CE Only and this is uniformly found in all locations. 

Archaeologist calls for excavations at KodungalloorKCHR has not come to any conclusion that Pattanam is Muziris. -     Prof K.N. Panikkar, chairman of KCHR

Prof K.N. Panikkar, chairman of KCHR, said that the tourism component has been included in the project to raise money for it.  He also said that KCHR has not come to any conclusion that Pattanam is Muziris.

Dissolve KCHR Take over Pattanam excavation by ASI - Dr N M Nampoothiri 


On 23 march 2004(one month before the starting of excavation by CHS), Shajan conducted an exhibition at Trivandrum with the help of KCHR. The media report goes thus:
”Pattanam near North Paravur was the ancient city of Muziris or part of Muziris according to geo-archaeological evidences unearthed during a study led by researcher K P..Shajan. The other members of the research team Included Roberta Tomber of the University of Southampton, V Selvakumar of the centre for historical study ,Thrippuuniththura, and Kerala Council of historical research Director Dr P J Cheriyan---.Fragments of Imported Roman amphora used for importing wine, and other materials Yemanese and west asian pottery, were found at Pattanam.The Indian roulette ware-----was also found.Bricks tiles pottery beads and artifacts found at pattanam were very similar to those found----at Arikkamedu.”
None of the places or structures hold any heritage factor of Muziris.They are all modern items compared to Muziris factors.
KCHR started their work in pattanam area only in 2007.Benny Kuriakose, an Engineer was given the charge of Muziris Heritage project by KCHR in 2006!. Now according to The Hindu, The excavations by KCHR were started in 2005!

“ He drew the muziris plan in 2006” media reports says. How can it is possible? He says that he started the project in 2008 with an aid of 41 crore rupees as central govt aid.In sept 2009 another allotment of 141 crore was made by Govt of Kerala.Hon: Finance minister of Kerala made this announcement :The Muziris Heritage project a unique tourism and conservation project linking monuments in the area surrounding the bygone 2000 year old Muzirisport will be opened to the public next month”


Hajj Stampede death toll crosses 1100

Death toll reportedly climbs to at least 1,100 in Saudi Arabia hajj stampede

An estimated 2 million people are undertaking the traditional hajj pilgrimage. Reuters, citing Saudi state television, reported that the stampede took place in Mina, a tent city located approximately three miles east of Mecca itself. The area is on the main road from the center of Mecca to the Hill of Arafat, revered by Muslims as the place where Muhammad gave his farewell sermon to Muslims who had accompanied him to Mecca near the end of his life.
It was the second major disaster during this year's hajj season, raising questions about the adequacy of measures put in place by Saudi authorities to ensure the safety of the roughly 2 million Muslims taking part in the pilgrimage. A crane collapse in Mecca nearly two weeks earlier left 111 people dead.
Photos released by the Saudi civil defense directorate on its official Twitter account showed rescue workers in orange and yellow vests helping the wounded onto stretchers and loading them onto ambulances near some of the white tents.
Many of the victims were crushed and trampled to death as they were on their way to perform a symbolic stoning of the devil by throwing pebbles against three stone columns in Mina.
Two survivors interviewed by The Associated Press said the disaster began when one wave of pilgrims found themselves heading into a mass of people going in another direction.
"I saw someone trip over someone in a wheelchair and several people tripping over him. People were climbing over one another just to breathe," said one of the survivors, Abdullah Lotfy, 44, from Egypt. "It was like a wave. You go forward and suddenly you go back."
Lotfy said that having two flows of pilgrims interacting in this way should never have happened. "There was no preparation. What happened was more than they were ready for," he said of the Saudi authorities.
King Salman ordered the creation of a committee to investigate the incident.
The Interior ministry's spokesman, Maj. Gen. Mansour al-Turki, said high temperatures and the fatigue of the pilgrims may also have been factors in the disaster. He said there was no indication that authorities were to blame for the event, adding that "unfortunately, these incidents happen in a moment."
Another survivor, Ismail Hamba, 58, from Nigeria, recalled falling down and then being trampled over by marching pilgrims. "It was terrible, it was really, really terrible," he said.
Thursday's tragedy struck during a morning surge of pilgrims at the intersection of streets 204 and 223 as the faithful were making their way toward a large structure overlooking the columns, according to the civil defense directorate.
The multi-story structure, known as Jamarat Bridge, is designed to ease the pressure of the crowds and prevent pilgrims from being trampled.
Ambulance sirens blared and helicopters hovered overhead as rescue crews rushed the injured to nearby hospitals. More than 220 rescue vehicles and some 4,000 members of the emergency services were deployed soon after the stampede to try to ease the congestion and provide alternative exit routes, according to the directorate.
Amateur video shared on social media showed a horrific scene, with scores of bodies — the men dressed in the simple terry cloth garments worn during hajj — lying amid crushed wheelchairs and water bottles along a sunbaked street.
Survivors assessed the scene from the top of roadside stalls near white tents as rescue workers in orange and yellow vests combed the area.
International media covering the hajj, including The Associated Press journalists in Mina, were restricted from visiting the site of the accident for several hours and from immediately leaving an Information Ministry complex where the press is housed during the final three days of the pilgrimage, per government rules.
There has been a history of crowd tragedies during the hajj, which every Muslim is required to complete at least once in their life.
In 2006, 364 pilgrims were killed in a stampede at the entrance to a bridge leading to the site in Mina where pilgrims carry out a symbolic stoning of the devil by throwing pebbles against three stone walls. In 2004, 244 people were trampled to death on the final day of the hajj ceremonies.
In the lead-up to this year's hajj, at least 111 people are killed and scores wounded when a crane collapsed in bad weather and crashed onto the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Islam's holiest site.
However, none of these tragedies comes close to matching the deadliest recorded accident during a hajj. That happened in 1990, when 1,426 were trampled or suffocated in a stampede in an overcrowded pedestrian tunnel leading to Mecca's holy sites.
The latest tragedy is certain to have touched many different countries as the victims likely included pilgrims of different nationalities.
Sudanese pilgrim Mahmoun Mahmoud, 55, witnessed what he said appeared to be pilgrims from many different countries.
At least 89 Iranian pilgrims perished and 150 were injured in Thursday's crush, according to the official IRNA news agency. The chief of the Iranian hajj organizing agency, Saeed Ohadi, blamed Saudi Arabia for "safety errors" and said in comments to Iranian state TV that "mismanagement by the Saudis" led to the tragedy.
No Egyptian nationals died according to initial reports but Egypt's hajj delegation executive president, Maj. Gen. Sayed Maher, said 30 Egyptians were injured in the deadly stampede.
The United States expressed its "deepest condolences" for the victims of the "heartbreaking stampede" outside Mecca. National Security Council spokesman Ned Price said the U.S. joins in mourning for "the tragic loss of these faithful pilgrims."
The U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon was "deeply saddened" to hear of the deaths, his spokesman said in a statement.
In the Pakistani city of Lahore, Sajida Arif, said her father, Haji Arif, died in the stampede. "Before leaving for the hajj, he told me he had a wish to be buried in Mecca," she said.
The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Pattanam: ASI stops KCHR from any more Excavations

We have been pointing out KCHR Fraud claims by claiming artefacts from some pits of same heights of same area in Pattanam and saying to belong from 10th Century BCE to 10th Century CE.

Oxford  University to various other Western Universities were part of this KCHR - but Archaeological Survey of India ASI Ecperts were not part of excavtions. ASI had earlier done excavations in Kodungallur and surrounding area and Found First Human settlement takes place only in 9th Century CE,and Virgin soil below it. KCHR never referred this report and planted artifacts - but no Professional Archaelogist was convinced of its claims.
KCHR group of So called researchers who has not got a single proof for a port city, town or any such dwellings went on to Various churches and claimed that St.Thomas Hoax stories were Historical due to Pattanam Excavations, all these proved their Intentions and predetermined excavations.


Sep 20 2015 : Mirror (Bangalore) 
No more excavations at Pattanam: ASI
http://epaperbeta.timesofindia.com/Article.aspx?eid=31820&articlexml=No-more-excavations-at-Pattanam-ASI-20092015007010
Archaeological Survey of India has denied permis sion to the Kerala Council of Historical Research for excavation at Pattanam, near Kochi, which they claim is the site of the ancient Muziris port, where it is widely believed that St Thomas, one of the 12 Apostles of Jesus Christ, landed in 52 AD.
The decision was taken during the Central Advisory Board of the ASI's meeting on September 11-12.
Ostensibly, the reason stated for denying the permission is that as per Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains Rules 1959, no excavation license for an area can exceed five years. KCHR has been excavating Pattanam village, 20 km away from Kochi, for the last nine years. However, sources within ASI confirm that the decision has been also prompted by a series of complaints and memoranda sent out to Culture Minister Dr Mahesh Sharma. Based on the complaints, an enquiry has also been ordered.

"The excavations have already been going on beyond the prescribed time limit. There was considerable pressure," he said. Other than Bharatheeya Vichara Kendram Research Centre, ICHR (India Council of Historical Research) newly appointed members including Michel Danino, Professor Dilip K Chakrabarti and Professor C I Issac have objected to the excavations. Professor Chakrabarti had in his book "Nation First" requested the Government of India to intervene and take serious note of foreign interference in Pattanam project that receives funding from various international bodies.

Pattanam - Archaeological Research Fraud with Oxford and other International Universities.

Kodungallur   has been the focal point of Kerala Churches which has been spreading St.Thomas Hoax myths, of the so called Apostle landing in Cranganore as is called. But Archaeological excavations proved the total area was under Sea till early 9th century by ASI, by world renowned Archaelogist.                                                                                               Enter -KCHR Church supported Marxist Historians with absolutely no Archaelogical background and select  a site NOT Far from Kodungallur - which was under sea, and from Ground level pits with in a space of 600 x 400 Meters they claim extracting more than 1,29,000 artifacts. They are dated to a age difference of 2000 years from 10th Cen BCE to 10th Cen CE, all the pits of same level, and not a single house like building or street and town - nothing is found.                                                                                  Pattanam wiki says -  According to the recent archaeological excavations,   Pattanam seems to have been first occupied by an indigenous population around 1000 BC and continued to be active till the 10th century AD. Some archaeologists identify it as the ancient Muziris.

Excavations  - Pattanam   here   says The site at Pattanam covers approximately 1.5 sq. km and the core area measures about 600 x 400 m
With in an area of this size and Pits of same size and depth gives more than 129,000 artefacts  a varying of period 2000 years  difference, from 10th Cen BCE to 10th Century CE.

Strongly criticising the archaeological excavations at Pattanam site in Kerala and the rambling hotchpotch of cultural remains without periodisation especially of pottery, veteran Archaeologist and former Director of Archaeology and Museums, Karnataka, A Sundara’s strong criticism came after the Kerala Council for Historical Research (henceforth KCHR) Director presented his paper on Pattanam excavations.
Professor PM Rajan Gurukkal, historian and one of the members of the MHP  also admitted that the site was unfit for any archaeological excavation as the soil has been virtually tampered for various construction purposes and digging of wells leaving no space for stratigraphical analysis of the cultural remains which have agglomerated."
Is this the way Western universities do their research? 
Absolutely unreliable KCHR, but to spread St.Thomas myth various Scholars from International Universities were involved, but no body has answered any querries on the sites, and the possibility of Planting those Artifacts at site.

Kodungallur and St.Thomas frauds continues with Pattanam excavations

Jesus said : Do not take the Road of Gentiles and do not enter Samaritan town in Matt 10:5-

These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not, 10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
8:The Kingdom on God Heaven is at Hand
23:Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.
Jesus was very clearly a Jewish Fanatic and a Fundamentalist.
Even in his Sermon on the Mount- his attack on God Believers , but not Jews in foul language as Dogs and Pigs. Such a racist was Jesus, that he said on the face of the  Greek woman of Syro-phoenician Women - he was for Only the lost sheep of Israel and not for others and Children's food cannot be given to Dogs.
Only when the Women said that she be blessed as Falling Crumbles of Children's food to Dog, Jesus said that for this answer your problem is attended.

Jews are the worst Nomads with No civilization before the arrival Greeks and Romans as per Archaeology and entire Old Testament is a product of 2nd Century BCE to 1st Century CE. Jesus refers OT as "Law and Prophets" many times, OT is TaNaK- Torah-Law; Nabiyam- Prophets; Ketubim- Writings.
Ketubims were added almost 100 years after Jesus, though some of them could be in use in few synagogues.

Old Testament has no Histoical Value, Israel of Bible never existed. 
Dead Sea Scrolls Torah says that the Local Small Deity of Israel - Yahweh's Temple was in Mt.Gerzim in Samaria, that means entire today's bible were remade to make it to Jerusalem specifice fictions.

Bible As Literature, Oxford University Press, written by 3 Professors John.A.Gabel, Charles B.Wheelr and Antony.D.York.
How was Hebrews living during OT times.
The small Corner of the Eastern Mediterranean, we have to keep reminding ourselves that it take up only Lower Third of that coast- particularly speaking was the Whole World to them.
Page-77
With Just a Few Exceptions, No Canaanite Or Israelite City before the Roman Period occupied more area than that of an American University Football Stadium, most Villages were hardly bigger than the Playing Field itself. King’ David’s Jerusalem is estimated to have measured about 300 x 1300 foot. Inside the City-walls houses would be crammed together according to no particular pattern, leaving room for Passages bu not for Streets. Before the Greek Period there were no Public Building of the Kind that we take for granted, provided by the Municipal Government. -Pages- 87,88
Foreign Countries appear in the OT only as Military Allies or Enemies of the Israelites or as the Habitat of Alien Gods; otherwise, not a Slightest interest is shown in them. Page-77
The Best Opportunity for Economic Development, it might seem was One they never took; Commerce by Sea with Mediterranean always at their door, the Israelites stubbornly remained a Land Locked People. They were effectively Shut off from the Coast at first by the Philistines, but the warfare between the two, more had to do with the Philistines attempt to expand toward the east than with any desire of the Israelite to gain access to Sea. Although the Palestinian Coast has no natural Harbors south of Carmel, this need not have been a Permanent Obstacle.
The Israelites were Content to Let others – Phoenicians and Egyptians conduct their Merchant Shipping for them, almost as though they Believed the Covenant Language in its Narrowest Sense as a Promise of Land and Nothing Further.
It is clear from their writings in the OT THAT THE SEA WAS ALWAYS to them, had no significant part to Play in their Thought. -Pages 86-87.
History of Christianity-Vol-I-   A.M.Mundaden:
“Dr.Walter J. Fischel, ‘the Greatest Authories on the Jews of Cochin’ prefersto refrain from taking any definite position regarding the pre-sixteenth century history of Kerala Jews.Page-20

JEWS in India could earliest be from 9th Century if they were in Kodungallore - Kochi as Kodungallur was below Sea till early 9th Century as per ASI Excavations in 1969.

Church History of Travancore” by C.M.Agur, (released by the Church in commemoration of Centenary Celebrations of the Church in 1903) reprint 1990, refers to the Merchant Thomas of Cana who came in 745 AD and clearly affirms-
“ Long after his Death the people Canonised him and the Subsequent Generation confused St.Thomas the Armenian Merchant with St.Thomas the Apostle, who never came to Malabar. This Confusion becomes more potent when we look in to the names of the Churches said to have been founded by the Merchant Thomas are Identical with the names of the Churches attributed to St.Thomas. Page-12
 Now Assume Jesus was a noble man, and Thomas went in for preaching - why should he come to India- Myth spread as Jews were in India earlier without any proof. 
Keralite Ramban Song in Malayalam is said to be a old Memoir of St.Thomas coming to India along with Acta Thoma.
HOW RELIABLE IS RAMBAN PATTU Or Other Keralite Traditions?
Rev.A.M.Mundaden says-Indian Tradition is clearly influenced by the accounts of the Acts of Thomas and also by the East Syrian Tradition.Some of the elements of the Sacraments pf Confirmation may be regarded as details, which have crept in to the Account from the Portuguese Sources P.32 ibid
The so called details available are mostly the fruit of fertile imaginations, generously employed to fill the gaps and provide facile interpretation. P-3 ibid
Rev. Mathen Manathala says in www.stmaryssharjah.com, -and article titled ST. THOMAS THE APOSTLE- -This tradition has many contradictions and factual errors. First of all there were no Brahmins in the Malabar Coast until the eight century. Secondly, the places where he is supposed to have founded churches were non existent as those parts of the western coast were still under the Arabian Sea. Thirdly, ordination of Kassesos and Rambans was not practiced in Christianity until the first quarter of the second century any where in the world. The only written evidence to this Malabar tradition is found in the Ramban Pattu supposed to be written in early 17th century, but the language used denotes a much later time, sometime in the 19th century.
 Opinion seems to be Unanimously in supporting the Hypothesis that the whole or Greater part of the western section of the Kerala coast was once under waters and that the formation of the Land was due to some process of nature either gradual or Sudden. Page-12  History of Christianity in India, Vol. I, by Fr. A. Mathias Mundadan
Ramban Pattu is made from Acts of Thomas and Portughese Legends.
Ramban Pattu says 7.5 church fictions.  Church spread St.Thomas building 7and half church in and around Kodungallur 
NO CHURCH ever built Till early 4th century mid 3rd century any where in World.
Why and when did Christians start constructing special buildings for worship? 
http://www.christianitytoday.com/ch/asktheexpert/ask_churchbuildings.html
St.Thoms Crosses shown in Church with insscriptions that are dated by Scholars as 9th century Pahalavi, and not properly deciphered till date does not prove any thing. 
The Apostle established seven “and a half” churches in Malabar at Kodungalloor (Muziris),  Paravur,  PalayoorKokkamangalam,NiranamNilackalKollam, and the Thiruvithamcode Arappally in Kanyakumari district. -   proved Fictions by Archaeological Survy of INDIA.  
KODUNGALLUR WAS UNDER SEA Till Early 9TH Century CE.

ASI Excavated Kodungallur in 1947, under P.Anujan Achan  and found articles of 14th century or later only. KERALA CHURCHMEN AND POLITCIANS put on pressure showing the above referred Copper plate and wanted ASI do more detailed Survey  Archaeological Survey of India under Highly Reputed Archaeologists Dr.K.V.Raman went for excavation , K.V.Raman and K.V.Saundararajan (1969-70). Archaeological sites such as

Dr.K.V.Raman wrote a book on his excavations in Tamil and has given details about Kodungallur excavations in each of his locations and all locations in and around Kodungallore (Cranganore) had same type and that Human Habitation took place in Later chera period in 9th Century CE Only and this is uniformly found in all locations. 

Pattanam Escavation Myth:
CHURCH Based Historians of KCHR Claims having excavated more than 1,25,000 artifacts in the pits they show has not convinced Professional Archaeologists. 

Archaelogists and Renowened Kerala Historians want complete Pattanam Excavations to be handed over to ASI and even the old pits must be re-excavated to check the periods claimed.


KCHR has not come to any conclusion that Pattanam is Muziris.     Prof K.N. Panikkar, chairman of KCHR 
http://www.deccanchronicle.com/local/kochi/should-tourism-bury-history-749
But everywhere in the Media - and internet it is spread as Muzuris. NO PORT CITY or Houses have been found till date. No Warf like As pulished in Foriegn Magazines are not at site

The venue was Thiruvananthapuram, at the Joint Annual Conference of Indian Archaeological Society (ACIAS), Indian Society for Prehistoric and Quaternary Studies (ISPQS), and Indian History and Culture Society (IHCS). Strongly criticising the archaeological excavations at Pattanam site in Kerala and the rambling hotchpotch of cultural remains without periodisation especially of pottery, veteran Archaeologist and former Director of Archaeology and Museums, Karnataka, A Sundara’s strong criticism came after the Kerala Council for Historical Research (henceforth KCHR) Director presented his paper on Pattanam excavations.

Professor Sundara is one of the most reputed Archaeologists in India, Dr R Nagaswamy, former Director of Archaeology, Tamil Nadu ,  Dr T Satyamurthy, former Director, ASI, Prof.M.G.S.Narayan all were not convinced by KCHR Claims.
Absolutely unreliable KCHR, but to spread St.Thomas myth various Scholars from International Universities were involved, but no body has answered any querries on the sites, and the possibility of Planting those Artifacts at site.
ASI must Take over and Re-dig even the Existing Pits.
