The Conversion Agenda

It fails to come to terms with the complex interrelationships between self and society that make the concept of individual choice meaningful. Hence, religious conversion undermines, and in extremes would dissolve, that individual autonomy and human freedom.

16 January 2005

With the scheduled Hinn performance next week already generating heat, the matter came up in the courts as well on Saturday.

Six petitions were filed seeking to prosecute Hinn. All the petitions have been filed by advocates, NGOs and cases have been listed for arguments on Monday.

Dorai Raj, counsel for the petitioners, stated that all the petitions had a common ground and sought directions to investigate into the matter and also prosecute Hinn.

Apart from this, they have also sought an order of injunction on the ‘Festival of Blessings’ programme starting from Friday.
Earlier, the police filed an application seeking clarification on the earlier order of the court, which had directed them to seize all publicity material being used for the show.

The public prosecutor sought to know whether prior sanction from the government was required to prosecute Hinn and the organisers.

Raj further stated that two writ petitions had been filed in the High Court seeking similar directions. He said that the matter could be taken up on Monday.
