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.

Indianised version of Bible hit among Christians

Mumbai, July 12 : An 'Indianised' version of the Bible released in India has become a huge hit among the Christian community here.

The Bible has proved to be extremely popular among the Catholics in Mumbai where over 15 000 copies were sold out within ten days of its release.

An interesting feature of this Bible is that it has drawn references to other religions like Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism.

"What made it special because they have also drawn the Indian mythology into it. Its not only based on Bible all like you know foreign standards," said Corin Mendonsa, a buyer of the book.

Another interesting thing about the book is that it depicts Mother Mary and other characters in typical Indian clothes.

"I wanted to buy only one copy, but after seeing the presentation, brought five copies. I felt happier because the pictures that are given are very impressive," said Father Wilset, another buyer.

According to the catholic community this Bible is getting a good response from the market.

The new Bible, which has about 2,200 pages, costs just 250 Rupees.

So unfotunate for the christian community to encourage "indianised Bible"!

The bible categorically condemens uttering names of pagan gods and ironically the indinised bible includes names from hindu mythology. No wonder muslims claim about the corruption of the word of God. Profanity!!

Will "blind charistians" in the west accept Mary being portayed like Brintey Spears ? Shame on such christains.

Danny singh is correct.Mary is the mother of jesus protrayed as feminine part of god while jesus is masculine part of god.so mother and son figure in christianity controry to hinduism belief of mother and father or husband and wife genders are worshipped together. infact,mary was not worshipped in the early part of christianity but only during the time of st paul,roman god venus was
protrayed as mary and started worshipping her.this is nothing to do with indianising bible which contains many verses not acceptable even to christians and not in line with what present day christianity preaches to convert illitrate and poor ignorant hindus.
