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.

NAGPUR: RSS ideologue M G Vaidya has alleged that the Andhra Pradesh government has relocated some Christian families to the Tirumala hills on the foothills of famous Lord Balaji shrine and they were distributing Christian pamphlets to the devotees of the temple.

Vaidya also alleged that some Christians have been given employment in the temple administration.

In his weekly column in Marathi daily Tarun Bharat, Vaidya wrote that the Christians should not “provoke” Hindus, and asked “should we suffer only because the Chief Minister is a Christian... Will the Vatican allow building a temple of Lord Ganesh there.”

He, however, did not take name of Y S Rajshekar Reddy, a Christian. “These Christians are distributing pamphlets of their religion to those coming to seek darshan of Lord Balaji.

“Moreover, the Vice-Chancellor and some lecturers of the Padmavati University, which is run by the temple administration, are asked to attend Christian prayer meetings,” Vaida claimed. He alleged that the reports of attacks on churches in Andhra Pradesh were part of a conspiracy and were exposed thoroughly.

The former RSS spokesman warned that neither the government nor the Christian preachers should take it for granted that they have “full freedom” in the country.
