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.

Public outrage against aggressive proselytisation by a sect

Attacks on Hindu Divinities by Christists are the real reason for the public outcry in Mangalore to aggressive proselytisation

Subject: Christian-Police clashes in Mangalore, following public outrage against aggressive proselytisation by a sect.

Here are the facts:

1. First of all, this is not a case of Hindu-Christian clash. It is nothing but a public outrage against New Life – a Christian sect that is known for irresponsible aggressive proselytisation. New Life had distributed several pamphlets maligning Hindu Divinities in a language that can be termed crass, vulgar and abusive. The following is a list of abuses from one such book – Satya Darshini – distributed by the missionaries of New Life. This book is in Kannada and the translation of the abusive passages are as follows.

* Urvashi – the daughter of Lord Vishnu – is a prostitute. Vashitha is the son of this prostitute. He in turn married his own Mother. Such a degraded person is the Guru of the Hindu God Rama. (page 48)When Krishna himself is wallowing in darkness of hell, how can he enlighten others? Since Krishna himself is a shady character, there is a need for us to liberate his misled followers. (page 50)

* It was Brahma himself who kidnapped Sita. Since Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva were themselves the victims of lust, it is a sin to consider them as Divinities. (page 39)

* When the Trinity of Hinduism (Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva) are consumed by lust and anger, how can they liberate others. Their projection as Divinities is nothing but a joke. (page 39).

* When Vishnu asked Brahma to commit a sin, he immediately did so. How can such an "evil brahma" be a Creator of this Universe? How is it possible for both the sinner and the entity which provoked the sin to be divinities? (page 39)

* God, please liberate the sinful people of India who are worshipping False Divinities that believe in the pleasures of illicit 'Vyabichari' relationships. (Page 39).

2. All the 16 incidents that took place were not attacks on Churches. In fact, unauthorized prayer halls were attacked where the blasphemous pamphlets were distributed and aggressive proselytisation was taking place. These 16 incidents were not localized but took place across three districts of Mangalore, Udupi and Chikmagalur.

3. The only place where attacks took place apart from New Life Prayer Halls was at a small prayer hall in the premises of Milagres Church in Mangalore, where some miscreants had damaged a Jesus idol. The VHP and the Bajrang Dal have condemned the attack at this place. Following this incident, a Christian mob gathered and the situation went out of control as the mob started pelting stones and disrupting traffic. The police was forced to intervene and this resulted in violence.

4. Since the past two days (14th and 15th Sept. 2008), the events are more appropriately called "Christian-Police" clashes since the Christians holed up in Churches have been pelting stones and disrupting traffic. The Police were forced to enter the Church to clear the mob and they found arms inside the Church.

5. Incidents of stabbing were reported in four places across Mangalore district. In fact, an activist belonging to Shri Ram Sena was stabbed which led to a bandh call by Shri Ram Sena – a Hindu outfit that is not connected to Sangh Parivar.

6. The VHP and the Bajrang Dal have condemned the desecration of Jesus idol at the prayer hall adjacent to the Milagres Church in Mangalore. They have also clarified that they are not against the Catholic faith and the Churches. However, they have clarified that the public outrage would continue as long as illicit conversion activities and blasphemy of Hindu divinities take place.

7. Even the Kandhmahal murder -- which involved the killing of Hindu Sanyasi Swami Lakshmananda by missionaries – seems to have caste a shadow on this incident since the general public seems to have seen through Christian aggression.

8. It may be recalled that there was a public outcry against illegal prayer halls in Davanagere district last week. In that case, the administration had closed the unauthorized prayer halls that were mushrooming in the region.

1- Swami Vivekananda once observed in christist imegary - Their slanderous literature had a hindu woman throwing her baby...The woman was black in color.

2- When St Xavier murdered the hindus, he had the same problem with black.

3- The slaves that christists captured were not from eastern europe or Iran. They had black color.

The christian thuggery is based on the contempt of black colour. They have taken religion and screwed it beyond belief - The church itself has sheltered devil through its greed to convert. The christian world view is a racial world view.

It is in this context that, the plight of New Life missionaries may be understood.

A quick retort to their accusations is attempted at :
