The Conversion Agenda

"Freedom to convert" is counterproductive as a generalized doctrine. 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.

Eminent Kannada literature U R Ananthmurthy today expressed strong reservation over Chief Minister N Dharam Singh attending religious prayer meeting of Christian leader Benny Hinn to be held here on January 21.

In a statement here, he said that Mr Singh should uphold his secular credentials and keep away from such meetings.

He said that practice of religion is an individual personnel act and it should be only an internal affair instead of being organised as an open show. Even Christians have expressed displeasure over Hinn's meeting, he added.

Mr Ananthmurthy said that just as the Ayodhya-Babri Masjid issue and Bababudangiri row being dubbed as anti-national by some section of the people even such meetings are anti-national.
