Sex-change specialist practises at Mumbai Catholic hospital
Dr. Kalpesh Gajiwala, a Mumbai plastic surgeon, conducts surgeries to alter the natural gender of people.
According to the teaching of the Catholic Church, gender reassignment surgery is wrong. Immoral. Sinful.
There are individuals who reject their natural sexual identities and go to doctors like Kalpesh Gajiwala for “sex-change” surgery. So, males are transformed by these “doctors” into “females” and females into “males”.
Rome holds that “‘sex-change’ procedures which purposefully destroy the bodily integrity of the person must be condemned and that they do not change a person’s gender in the eyes of the Church. Attempting to satisfy psychological states is not a valid therapeutic reason to amputate healthy genitals and to undertake to reconstruct new ones.” More Catholic information on this subject is available at my article on SEX REASSIGNMENT SURGERY
After extensive study, the Vatican issued a “sub secretum” (secret) document on this subject to papal representatives in all continents in the year 2000, and sent it to the bishops’ conferences of the universal Church in 2002, according to a Catholic News Service report of January 14, 2003.
But the Archdiocese of Bombay is either unaware of the Document or acting in contravention of it because it has endorsed Dr. Kalpesh Gajiwala‘s clinic at the Holy Family Hospital in Bandra.
Holy Family Hospital email@example.com
is administered by The Bandra Holy Family Hospital Society, a public charitable trust, and the Congregation of the Ursuline Sisters of Mary Immaculate (UMI).
According to their web site (http://www.holyfamilyhospital.in/health/about-us/mission-statement.htm), their values are “Respect for life in all its stages … Holy Family Hospital, Mumbai, upholds the highest medical and ethical standards.”
If all that is true, how do they allow their Catholic hospital to be used by a Hindu sex-change surgeon who (among others) “reassigned” the sex of a female scion of Mumbai’s famous Mafatlal family in 2003 and was embroiled in a major controversy in 2012 in the case of twenty-one year old Bidhan Barua who came to him to be turned into a woman against the wishes of his parents, forcing the Bombay High Court to intervene.
Gajiwala told reporters that he has started getting three times as many queries after the Mafatlal story broke.
He said that a father who had many daughters approached him to have one turned into a boy.
is available at the Holy Family Hospital‘s General Out-Patient Department Thursdays from 1:30 PM.
He can be consulted privately (it will be more expensive I am informed) at Holy Family on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM. His mobile number is 98200 16319.
I said above that the Bombay Archdiocese endorsed the allowing of Dr. Kalpesh Gajiwala‘s clinic at Holy Family, because the Gajiwalas are the archdiocese’s “First Family” even though they are not Catholic.
Mrs. Gajiwala is a “theologian” who preaches to gathering of bishops, teaches in seminaries and is on the editorial board of the archdiocesan weekly The Examiner. Her values are thoroughly liberal and secular.
The Indian Church’s Gender Policy, 2010,
mentions Mrs. Gajiwala as one of those who drafted the document: http://www.cbcisite.com/Gender_Policy.pdf.
Now she uses that certificate to promote her agenda for women’s ordination as a leading activist of groups that advocate and militate for the ordination of women.
Though she is already in several of our reports on this issue (see the list of files at the link given in the following paragraph), an exclusive report on her from this ministry is long overdue and will be released soon.
Their daughter Gayatri, an English teacher who is in her twenties and practices an eclectic mix of Hinduism and Catholicism like the rest of the Gajiwalas, was “selected” by the Archdiocese and the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India, and deputed to be the voice of the Indian Church at a Vatican conference last month.

The above-mentioned report from this ministry is also at the Laitytude blog from Mumbai:
and the ephesians511 blog (neither owned nor operated by me despite the name similarity) from Bangalore:
The Gajiwalas have the blessings and support of their mentor Archbishop Felix Machado of Vasai as well all of the bishops of the Archdiocese of Bombay, including Cardinal Oswald Gracias.
This “syncretized” unCatholic family is favoured over numerous faithful and more capable and experienced Catholics, prompting Advocate Joseph Sodder to send the following email (Friday, April 22, 2016 8:05 AM) to the Cardinal and other bishops:
Subject: CARDINAL OSWALD GRACIAS PAMPERS ONE FAMILY AT THE COST OF GENUINE DESERVING CATHOLICS?
YOUR EMINENCE CARDINAL OSWALD GRACIAS,
I AM AMAZED THAT YOU KEEP ON PAMPERING ONE FAMILY WITH IMPORTANT CHURCH POSTINGS AT THE COST OF THE ENTIRE CATHOLIC ARCHDIOCESE OF MUMBAI. YOU APPOINT THE MOTHER TO BE ON THE BOARD OF THE EXAMINER AND YOU NOMINATE THE DAUGHTER TO REPRESENT THE CATHOLICS OF MUMBAI AT THE CONFERENCE AT THE VATICAN CALLED THE VOICES OF FAITH.
YOUR EMINENCE WHAT IS THE CONTRIBUTION OF THE DAUGHTER TO THE COMMUNITY THAT YOU CHOOSE HER OVER THE LAKHS AND LAKHS OF CATHOLICS OF MUMBAI TO REPRESENT THE ARCHDIOCESE?
YOUR EMINENCE IS THIS FAMILY SPECIAL TO YOU?
YOUR EMINENCE DO OTHER CATHOLICS IN MUMBAI DONT COUNT FOR YOU?
THE BEST INDIVIDUAL I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT DESERVES THIS IS JANESSA. SHE WORKS FOR ALL THE KIDS IN THE COMMUNITY. SHE IS ACTIVELY INVOLVED IN THE CHURCH OF MUMBAI AND DEVOTES ALL HER TIME FOR THE CATHOLIC COMMUNITY. BUT I KNOW THAT YOU ARE BLIND, DEAF AND DUMB AND IN THIS YEAR OF MERCY YOU HAD NO MERCY ON ROOPESH AND GEORGE WHO WERE FASTING TO RECTIFY AND HIGHLIGHT THE WRONGS OF THE CHURCH. BUT YOU HAVE ALL THE TIME AND ENERGY TO PAMPER ONE CATHOLIC FAMILY. HAVE A HEART AND GIVE THE MANY CATHOLIC FAMILIES A CHANCE AND DONT PAMPER YOUR LOVED ONES AT THE COST OF THE COMMUNITY OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN AND AGAIN.
For more information on the Gajiwalas the reader may check out the two files identified above as well as the lists of files on the last page of the latter.
Incidentally, Holy Family Hospital promotes the New Age remedies of homoeopathy.
“With an eye on holistic medicine, the hospital also opened a special homeopathic clinic with highly qualified doctors.”
The 3 February 2003 Vatican Document specifically identifies homeopathy and clearly defines the New Age aspects of holistic medicine, warning Catholics against the spiritual dangers posed by these “alternatives”.
The Ursuline Sisters of Mary Immaculate took over the administration of the Holy Family Hospital in Bandra, Mumbai from the Medical Mission Sisters (MMS) in 1978 when virtually the entire MMS order abandoned the practice of allopathic medicine for New Age holistic health therapies ranging from acupressure to pranic healing, from healing with crystals to colour therapy, from reiki to yoga. The MMS nuns have their main occult arts centers at Changanacherry in Kottayam diocese, Kerala and Bibwewadi in Pune diocese, Maharashtra.
