DEBATE WITH THE ARCHBISHOP OF HYDERABAD
On the Conversions Issue

In late 1998 a Hindu backlash occurred against the Christian conversion effort in India. This happened mainly in tribal communities that had long been targeted by the missionaries. Note that Christian missionaries don’t come to dialogue with Hindu religious leaders, whom they cannot possibly convert, but to target the poor and uneducated. What does  this say about their motives?

Rather than looking to the real cause of the problem, which was missionary interference in tribal life, the western influenced media tried to blame Hindu fundamentalism as the danger. They portrayed Hindus as intolerant and exaggerated the violence against Christians while ignoring Christian violence against Hindus. They failed to remember the bloody history and intolerant attitudes of the missionaries.

Though only one missionary was killed during the entire period, they tried to portray it as a bloodbath or massacre of Christians in India. In response the Prime Minister of India, Atal Behari Vajpayee, asked for a national debate on the conversion issue.
