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.

Saraswati punished for countering Christian propaganda: RSS

Mangalore, Mar 13 2005
[India News]

RSS leaders have said that Jayendra Saraswati, has been punished for countering Christian conversion propaganda.

RSS chief KS Sudarshan, has accused the Central government of harassing Jayendra Saraswathi.

Saraswathi, implicated in a series of cases, ranging from money laundering to assaults, was earlier arrested in a case relating to the murder of a temple official, Shankararaman, who incidentally was also a bitter critic of the Seer.

Saraswati ic was granted bail in January, after nearly a month of detention and massive nation wide protests by Hindu groups.

The RSS said that the seer's extensive charity work was increasingly luring India's poor away from Christian missionaries.

"Even now the seer is being harassed and victimized and all this is happening at the behest of the Central government. It is under pressure from Christian missionaries who have been destabilized by Shankaracharya. The number of hospitals, school and charity organisations opened by him came as a boon for the poor people," Sudarshan told thousands of party workers at a conclave in Mangalore.
