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.

Preparing for the harvest ...

This could be the plot of a fevered thriller. A jingoistic president, multi-million dollar corporations, high technology, a grand if furtive mission, networks spanning the globe, and biblical invocations.

Only it’s real. And its got India in its crosshair.

Religious expansionism has not witnessed this scale, scope, and state resources in a long time. Detailed investigations by Tehelka reveal that American evangelical agencies have established in India an enormous, well-coordinated and strategised religious conversion plan. The operation was launched in the early 1990s but really came into its own after George W Bush, an avowed born-again Christian, became president of the United States in 2001.

This could be the plot of a fevered thriller. A jingoistic president, multi-million dollar corporations, high technology, a grand if furtive mission, networks spanning the globe, and biblical invocations.

=> India has become a key target of pro-active evangelism; North India is the main target.

=> US-based evangelical bodies use their vast resources and manpower convert people and churches in India.

=> American intelligence has more exhaustive ethnographic maps of India than the Indian government itself.

=> Evangelist organisations dupe government agencies to enter India and conduct operations

=> Evangelists working closely with American intelligence. Each corner of India has been mapped; socio-economic groups have been identified for targeting.
