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.

RSS flays attempts by Church to divide North-Eastern states

October 24, 2005

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) today accused the Church leaders for ''instigating'' the recent Karbi-Dimasa clashes in the Karbi-Anglong district of Assam with a view to createing ''Greater Nagaland'' by ''dividing'' three North-Eastern states.

The three-day national executive of the RSS here adopted a resolution to this effect, spokesman Ram Madhav told newspersons here.

The resolution called upon the civil society to ''thwart the designs of the separatist designs of the Church who are propagating two-nation theory''.

''It is the constitutional and democratic duty of the administration and political leadership to initiate moves to defeat the communal forces,'' the RSS said.

''The demand to include some districts of Manipur in the proposed Greater Nagaland will put the very existence of the small state in jeopardy and therefore the resistance of people is natural and justified.'' Flaying the Manipur administration for its indifferent attitude towards the 52-day economic blockade in the hills of Manipur in July-August, the RSS said the blockade was ''totally deplorable''.

''The proposed Greater Nagaland would also include parts of Karbi-Anglong and North Cachar Hills districts where Hindus are present in large numbers. The separatist forces are trying to create divide between the Karbis and Dimasas who were so far cohabiting peacefully to achieve their plan. Many were killed as a result and thousands rendered homeless,'' the RSS said.

The resolution also flayed the move of the Churches to convert people in the Tirap and Changlang districts with a view to including them in ''Greater Nagaland'' and called for a need to check the drive.
