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.

Strong nexus between Christian missionaries and Naxals: VHP

January 08, 2008 19:17 IST

The Vishwa Hindu Parishad on Tuesday alleged a strong nexus between Christian missionaries and Naxals. The VHP sought an immediate ban on the foreign funding to these organisations as they were a 'massive threat' to the country's security.

A VHP delegation called on President Pratibha Patil [Images] in New Delhi today and gave a detailed account of the situation in Orissa's Kandhamal district, which recently witnessed communal violence.

The VHP leaders presented a memorandum to the President, seeking an immediate ban on the conversion activities of Christian missionaries and foreign funds to these organisations.

They also demanded a thorough scrutiny of the accounts of these Christian missionaries and urged the President to ensure that no foreigner is allowed to practice religious conversion in the country.

''The President gave a patient hearing and assured us that she will look into the matter,'' said VHP national secretary Dr Surendra Kumar Jain.

He alleged that the Christian missionaries had a strong nexus with Naxals across the country.

''In the North East, these missionaries have links with Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence and other terror outfits. They are a serious threat to the country's security,'' Dr Jain alleged.
