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.

On Christmas Eve forcible conversion of Hindus into Christianity continues – eleven including a pastor in jailed in India

It is sad that other religions do not respect someone else’s religion. It is sad what happened in India on the day of the Christmas eve. Eleven including a pastor is in custody for committing civilized world’s oldest crime – bribing to covert into other religion.

They have been charged with attempting to forcibly convert people after one Pandu Lal Sona, an employee of Dhamtari municipality, complained on Saturday evening to police that the members of the minority community were offering bribe for conversion in his Jalampur locality, 75 km from the state capital, the Indian authorities said.

Whether it is bribe or threat to kill – it is the same crime. Jesus Christ preached. He never said to bribe to convert. It is sad what these missionaries have done in India in the last three hundred years. It is a shame on them and shame on those who sponsor them.

The incident that occurred on Christmas eve in the district headquarters Dhamtari sparked off protests by Bajrang Dal and other saffron party activists who gathered at the police station demanding strict action against the arrested persons, officials said.

The ruling BJP had passed a legislation in the monsoon session of the Assembly for stringent punishment and imposing fines on those involved in religious conversion by force or allurement.
