Saahasee ( An NGO) / Matter of Religious Tolerance, Religious freedom and Exploiting Human Rights.
My name is Anil Sanyal, since more than 5 years I am working as an Activist with Care2earth.com and I am working in Saahasee organization since from 21 November 2007 so that I can give my life for humanity, making needy people happy and to care for this earth, My designation is Administration Supervisor, But Saahasee kept me as an Artist.
On 6 April 2009 my organization gave me termination letter, and they gave reason of termination is global crises, but according to me there is not any kind of financial crises in my organization because they recruited some of new staffs after and just before my termination. And among those staffs some are from their own sources and references.
After my termination I asked some questions to the organization.
Those questions are:
· Why they kept new staffs when there are any financial crises?
· Why they did not adjust old staffs in other positions and places?
· Where is that audit report which is showing financial crises?
· Where is general body meeting report, which is showing any kind of financial crises? Where is administration notice to staff, which indicates that they are taking such step of reducing staff because of financial crises?
· Why only my termination happened because of financial crises?
· And very important question is that, why they harassed me and made my life hell and terminated me after 75 days of my complaint to Mr. Eddie Mall against Mr. G. Lazarus? Why Mr. Eddie Mall did not take and action or inquiry for the truth?
· Is there any secret sharing of doing crime and corruption together in the organization?
But they don’t have any answers of these questions. All these questions shows my termination is just a preplanned and I have many reasons to prove that my termination is a diplomatic and act of dictatorship in a social welfare organization. This is just because I am raising my voice against there corruption in the organization and also I denied changing my religion.
I have my mother, wife, sister and my sister’s son in my family. My father is just expired on 18 February 2009. Before joining this organization I and my family is going to the same church where Mr. G. Lazarus is going, By birth I and my family is Hindu in religion, but I and my family is having very deep faith in Christianity and we are in love with The Lord and his Loving Son Jesus, While going regular to the church we came in contact with Mr. G. Lazarus, that time my financial situation was very low, Because of this situation my church Pastor requested Mr. G. Lazarus about giving me and my sister some work in Saahasee organization, Mr. G. Lazarus talked to me and my sister and gave work to my sister first, but after few days of getting that work Mr. G. Lazarus disclosed indirectly his wish of changing religion to my sister, and my sister also took baptism, because she must be having some insecurity of her job and she was not having any problem also because she is having very deep faith in Christianity, after few months I talked again to Mr. G. Lazarus about joining Saahasee and Mr. G. Lazarus kept me also, I was very happy after getting this job because it was a big help for me in the treatment of my mother, my family was also very happy, my mother is very sick. She is having very serious heart problem, blood pressure and diabetes, while I was working in saahasee everything was going fine, one day Mr. G. Lazarus disclosed same wish of converting my religion indirectly and said that if I take Christianity than everything will be fine soon and also saahasee will help me for my mother treatment, but as I am hindu by birth so it was not easy for me to take such decision in haste, because religion is somewhere contacted with our soul and also I felt a kind of dealing to make a relation with God which I felt not good because when we are going to make a relation with God, there should not be any mediator in that relation, so I said him that it will take time for me to take such decision, that time he silently heard my decision and it was also surprising for me because I never heard that any time Mr. G. Lazarus said this kind of thing to any other so I felt this must be to me because he gave me work when I was really needy and he must be taking advantage of that. But Mr. G. Lazarus asked the same for many time and showed his anger in many ways. One day when he was saying same to me to change my religion I answered him in frustration that I am not ready to do this in pressure, this frustration was because my mother was not well and was admit in the hospital, after hearing my answer he said to me in anger that you will be out from saahasee, I answered him that he can’t do this to me just because I am not changing my religion, I also said him that my condition is not very good right now and also my mother is admit in the hospital, but he repeated same thing with anger that you will be out, he asked me that my sister took baptism so why cant I do the same? Than I answered that I will take baptism if I feel it from my soul. He took my frustrated answer on his ego, Now he started taking revenge from me, he did same revengeful behavior many times whenever he got chance, he harassed me mentally and made my life fully disturbed, my life was already very disturbed due to my mothers sickness and also because of financial crises and Mr. G. Lazarus made my life hell by misbehaving and mentally harassing in his closed room. One day an incident happened, in our organization a guy named Thangson, who is also doing some drawing work, One day he gave some of his drawing to another working employ in some CD, accidentally, some of nude pictures which was drawn by Mr. Thangson but was in hidden folder was also written to that CD, those pictures he made in his house but brought it for scanning in the office, and he made that folder hide after scanning, but when he searched those pictures he didn’t find those pictures in the computer, after few months when he was not aware of that folder he made this unintentional mistake, but that girl complained against this incident and asked Mr. G. Lazarus to take appropriate action for this, when he asked Mr. Thangson for this than Thangson told him that he is inspired by my art and my statement that whoever can make human figures good is a good artist, after hearing this from Thangson, Mr. G. Lazarus told him to write a letter in which he told him to do some change and involve Anil and save your job, Thangson did same as Mr. G. Lazarus said but also requested Mr. G. Lazarus that Anil is no where in this mistake so please don’t involve Anil in any punishment or action taken by Administration, but Mr. G. Lazarus gave me a meaningless warning letter to me without any of my mistake and I never even asked him to draw such kind of pictures. All pictures he made by his own wish and in his own house. when I asked Mr. Thangson that, Why he involved me in this incident which is nowhere connected with me than Thangson told me that Mr. G. Lazarus told him to write it like this and involving Anil name. So I feel Mr. G. Lazarus involved me in this case in his revenge of denying for changing my religion and to protect his prestige from blame in front of victim in this case, I am having correct document with me which is signed by Mr. Thangson himself in which Thangson wrote the correct words which shows I am not there in this incident anywhere and also requested me not to show that document to Mr. G. Lazarus because he might lose his work than and also promised me that if any time I get effected because of this issue than he will himself stand with me and confess his fault. But now he is changed. I also went to Mr. G. Lazarus with my warning letter and asked him why he did this to me than Mr. G. Lazarus answered me that you are not required in this organization anymore so resign as soon as possible, but I told him that I will not do that as you are saying and I will talk to Mr. Eddie Mall about this issue, or if Mr. Eddie will not help me to solve this problem than I will go to labor court for justice than Mr. G. Lazarus told me again same that you will be out and also said that you cant do anything against saahasee because we have muscular power, political power and money power. After hearing this from Mr. G. Lazarus I became little afraid that if really I cant get any help from any side than what I will do? But on the day of reflection meeting I heard some words from madam Farida ( A Board member of Saahasee ) from the bible and she also said that if we have guts of speaking truth than those truth world can change the worst part of life on the earth. These words inspired me and same day after meeting I said my problem to Mr. Eddie Mall, but he told me that he is not having any time right now so please send me an email about this complaint, and I sent an email to him after few days, after sending an email I realized that my problem became more worst and Mr. G. Lazarus Snatched each and every work from me and told me to make paper bags, that time I felt that Mr. Eddie Mall is also supporting Mr. G. Lazarus. Now my days in Saahasee become more painful and unbearable. Mr. G. Lazarus become more easy in doing worst behave with me and harassing me. Now I was feeling that he got Mr. Eddie’s instructions and permission of doing everything against me. He started all new things leaving humanity aside and taking more revenge from me and exploiting my education, Working experience and capability by not giving me any work, this action of Saahasee made myself very insulted and broken and my life became hell. My life was already very disturbed because of my mother’s sickness and because of over expenditure on the treatment of my mother. And Saahasee knew everything about my poor condition than also Mr. Eddie Mall and Mr. G. Lazarus was doing cruel acts against me. One day when I was in the work place, in the afternoon my wife gave me a phone call that my mother is in very serious condition and doctor want her to admit urgently and she told me to come soon in the hospital, after hearing this I went to Mr. G. Lazarus and asked for leave, than Mr. G. Lazarus said me in anger that as much leave you want you take it now because I will not give it again, I filled One and half day leave but I took one extra leave and Mr. G. Lazarus put me absent. After few days my father suffered from pneumonia and doctor told me to admit soon, I admitted him and next day I asked Mr. G. Lazarus to give me some more leave because doctor told me that without any relative they will not admit my father, but Mr. G. Lazarus told me that he will not give me any leave and if I take any leave than he will terminate me, after hearing such decision of Mr. G. Lazarus I went to the hospital in the evening and said to doctor that it is very difficult for me to take the leave because my organization is not ready for giving me leave, so doctor took me every thing in written that I am taking back my father to home in my own wish and if anything bad happened than hospital is not responsible for that, Unfortunately my father died of lack of good treatment, so I feel Saahasee administration and Mr. G. Lazarus is responsible for my father’s death. After death of my father, Mr. G. Lazarus granted me 10 days leave and also put the back one-day absent in sectioned leave. I want to ask you that is it not a cruelty that being an NGO and committing about a big and kind helper of humanity, my organization’s main seniors ( Mr. Eddie Mall and Mr. G. Lazarus(Pastor ! which means the man of God) are doing such kind of merciless acts in the name of Jesus and also holding pious bible and preaching the teaching of the lord and the son of lord. In reality Saahasee is not a social welfare organization, it’s a business of some rich and influenced persons who are indulged in earning maximum money by the easy way of getting donation money by showing poor and needy people to international funding organization and making fool of donors and poor illiterate communities and they are not spending even 20% of donation money on the right way. You must be thinking that I am saying all this just because I am the victim of cruelty and must be taking revenge of my pain, But I want to tell you that all this I am telling you because I am working as an activist, and I am acting as a reformer and raising my voice against the corruption and criminal way of earning money by a social welfare organization in the name of God. I am sending you a proof of my international activity as an activist. Whatever I am telling you is reality of an NGO. Many of staffs are now out of the organization just because they know truth about. Saahasee took diplomatic ways to making them out. Every staff who are working or non working, knows about every fishy activities going in the organization but those who are working will not tell you truth because they are getting salaries without doing any work or very less work. Some non-working staffs will also never tell you truth because of fear. Some are also afraid of Saahasee’s money and muscular power. And some senior staffs are getting unexpected promotions and increments leaving beside their education, experience and capabilities just because they are helping Mr. Eddie Mall and Mr. G. Lazarus in corruption and criminal way of running organization. I also feel that I need some protection for any bad happening from some Top-level persons of Saahasee. But I am taking such action just because I wish to work for the betterment of humanity and want to make the earth a good place where each and every human can live without any feeling of bad happening and with justice, Bible also tell us to stand for humanity. I have much to tell you but I need your support and interest of acting on this complaint. I am feeling very insecure while telling all this truths, because I got 2 very cool suggestions verbally or you can say threats by Mr. G. Lazarus after an email to Mr. Eddie mall which I gave after my termination and in that mail I told about taking action against them if they will not give me satisfactory reasons about my termination. Mr. G. Lazarus said me that all whatever I am doing or taking action will result a painful suffering for my family and me. And also said that I cant do anything for them because they have money and contacts to get rid of every situation. He said that donors would not take any action against them because many people tried many times before but never succeed. He said my every step will be going useless and I will be the one who will be suffered financially, mentally and physically. I complained many times to Donor organizations also but I am not sure if any action yet has been taken from them. That’s why my mother and my wife also told me not to do anything against them. Few senior staffs also told me same as Mr. G. Lazarus said to me but I can feel that they are also making me afraid so that I do not take any action against saahasee’s leadership. I have Hope that I get help from you and have faith on God.
