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.

Growing church activities in Hindu Kingdom

With Nepal going through rough political patch, anti-India lobbies including China and Pakistan have become active there. Now, on religious level, Church has also become active, as it is also spreading its tentacles in Nepal. One can gauge the increasing activities of Church with an aim of conversions of Nepali Hindus as Sister Nirmala, the head of the Kolkata-based Missionaries of Charity, visited Nepal on January 13 and also met Minister for Foreign Affairs, Ramesh Nath Pandey. This was the first visit of Sister Nirmala, who is Nepali by birth, to the country after she was appointed a successor of Mother Teresa in 1997. Before this, she had toured the north-eastern states of India to strengthen Christianity. The Missionaries of Charity movement used her visit to get a foothold there. It is planning to open its branch in Pokhara, Nepal, as she also attended a mass at Assumption Church at Dhobighat.
