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.

Malaysia Hindu Sangam President Resigns In Protest from Interfaith Group

Press Release

KAULA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA, January 22, 2005: The Malaysia Hindu Sangam issued the following press release:

"It is with deep regret that Datuk A.Vaithilingam, President Malaysia Hindu Sangam, resigns from the Executive Committee of the Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism and Sikhism (MCCBCHS). Datuk Vaithi has already tendered his resignation on December 1, 2004 but the MCCBCHS did not accept it and appealed to the Central Council of Malaysia Hindu Sangam (MHS) to urge him withdraw his resignation. The Central Council met on January 21, 2005. After hearing the explanation from him, the Council unanimously accepted the decision to resign. The meeting also decided that the MHS will withdraw from the MCCBCHS if the Christian partners do not respect the existence of the Hindu Community in Malaysia. A call was made to immediately stop the unethical methods of lies and falsehoods preached to non-Christians about their respective religions. The Malaysia Hindu Sangam will soon be meeting the Buddhist and Sikh partners to explain his stand. The Taoists leaders will also be meeting the MHS leaders soon on this issue."
