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.

Christian priest arrested for abetting conversion

Bhopal, June 30 : A Christian priest has been arrested for allegedly abetting conversion by enticing people with promises of work in Madhya Pradesh's Badwani district, police said Monday.

“We have been receiving complaints that priest Hatte Singh in Navalpur has been luring poor people, promising them work and other benefits if they adopted Christianity as their religion,” Vijay Sisodia, a police official, told IANS over phone.

“The priest was held on Sunday after members of a Hindu outfit complained to us. We raided his residence in Navalpur and saw that he had collected about half a dozen poor people who, according to the complainants, were brought for conversion,” he said.

Singh has been arrested on similar charges earlier also.

Police said a case has been registered against the priest and the matter would be probed.
