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.

Missionaries Trying to Create Christian Belt

13 Sep 2005 UNI

The Bhartiya Janata Party today alleged that missionaries were trying to create a Christian belt in the country through largescale conversion of the poor in the name of spreading education and health services.

Addressing a press conference here, senior BJP leader and Jharkhand state unit President Yadunath Pandey alleged that the missionaries were trying to create a Christian belt from Nagaland to Nagpur. ''The missionaries, who are enticing poor people for conversion in the name of education and healthcare, are no less than the mythical demon Taraka, who tried to kill Lord Krishna by trying to breastfeed poisonous milk to him,'' he said.

Mr Pandey said the 'vices' of the missionaries should be stopped to prevent any attempt to create another nation. ''Conversion is a big problem in the nascent state of Jharkhand also and the state government is taking measures to check the menace,'' he said.

The BJP leader said the missionaries in the state were resorting to divide and rule policy and 'instigating' the poor tribals and non-tribals to fight among themselves.
