As the General Elections to the Lok Sabha and to legislatures States like Andhra Pradesh approach, various Christian organisations and leading Christians are coming out with the truth that has been long suspected, namely the internationally funded multi-national conversion (MNC) enterprises of Christians bringing about a demographic havoc in the country.
What used to be a whimper has now become a thunder, what with their co-religionists virtually controlling the UPA-led government in the Center and the most resource supplying (money) state like Andhra Pradesh being ruled by ones among them. They used to say that Hindus should not be perturbed by the proselytization activities of as small a community as less than 2.5% of India’s population. But of late some of them are asserting that they are about 19% [just like Muslims asserting that they are not 12.5% as the census of India says but about 20%]. In Andhra Pradesh they are making militant demands that since they are not less than 10%, 30 out of the 294 seats in the Legislative Assembly and 3 out of 42 Lok Sabha seats must be the minimum to be allotted to Christians by every party. How their figures of 19% or 10% in Andhra Pradesh have come up, while for example, as per the census of India, in Andhra Pradesh the proportion of Christian population has been progressively declining as below has to be explained; there is a deliberate fraud here:
Christian Population in Andhra Pradesh
|Total population mln||43.5||53.6||66.5||76.2|
|% of Christian population||4.19||2.68||1.83||1.44|
Christian organisations are now inventing victim-hood. They are saying hat their properties are being encroached upon or occupied by force; that their churches are under attack and their pastors and even Christian laymen are being set upon and subjected to violence in many ways. They commit an aggression; the defenders pay in their coin. The aggression is not recorded; it is said to be peaceful exercise of the Constitutional right of propagating their religion; even as propagation is provocation, fraud and inveiglement and enticement. The defending Hindus are called as oppressors; attackers, fascists, fundamentalists, communal etc. The propagandise in the domestic and foreign media that Christians are persecuted and denied freedom of religion. They are “victims” of Hindus!
They are demanding that there should be special protection force for their properties and churches; they should have unfettered right to preach in the precincts and around Hindus’ temples; they should have a separate government department for their welfare and a separate finance corporation to give them loans; they should be free to found and manage any type of colleges and sell seats in those colleges to Hindus, thus abusing the privilege of so called minority educational institutions without limit. They are demanding that SC converts to Christianity should be extended the reservations meant for Hindu SCs. They have demanded and as never before and in no other state, in Christian ruled Andhra Pradesh they have got a subsidy of Rs.25,000 for Christian pilgrimage to Jerusalem [just like Muslims getting Rs.35,000 for their Haj pilgrimage to Mecca; Christians are given and Rs.15,000 for a Christian’s marriage. Unsatisfied with these extra ordinary rights and privileges, they are wanting welfare disbursements in proportion to their increasing population by converts. Different sects of Christians are competitively planting Churches in villages in numbers totally unrelated to the number of converts. Form these, they broadcast provocative content to belittle Hinduism and extol Christianity and get converts. Hindu Bhaksti Gitas and stotras are appropriated by them with the names like Hari and Krishna and Sita and Rama substituted by Yesu and Mary giving the impression that Yesu and Mary worship is not unHindu. Thus they inveigle the wary into conversion by inducements like immediate cash and kind relief and promises of giving foreign assignments to the educated unemployed.
Christian organisations are inviting vote-hunting 'seculars' [like the TDP and Praja Rajyam Party (PRP) in Andhra Pradesh] to their congregations and are representing to them that they are being attacked; that their life and properties and places of worship are under threat, that the constitutionally guaranteed propagate right to their religion is being extinguished by government orders prohibiting preaching conversion in and around temples. Vote-hungry 'secular' leaders are promising whatever Christians are wanting, no matter that pilgrimage and marriage subsidies, special rights and privileges are not admitted to Hindus. The Hindu ministers in a Christian Chief Minister’s cabinet are so cowed down, have so little self-respect and are so frightened that not one of them asked for extension of the pilgrimage and marriage subsidies given to Christians, to Hindus also.
The Minister for minority welfare in Andhra Pradesh, a Muslim is organising job-melas inducing company chiefs to come to them and prevailing upon them to recruit minorities, with special consideration into their companies. Almost all executive, money-disbursing and policy-shaping positions are assigned to Christians. Crypto-Christians (those who have converted to Christianity but continue to show themselves as Hindu SCs in government records to avail of reservations, are inducted even into Hindu Religious and Endowment Board and temple administration and management. Within the last five years, what could not be achieved by way of conversions in the 400 years since they started their conversion activities in our country seems to have been achieved during the central government under the dictates of a foreign-origin person at the head of India’s oldest political organization and the first committed practicing Christian Chief Minister in the state. Andhra Pradesh is now heading for a minority take-over. The powers that be as well as the non-Congress 'secular' leaders and parties are attending rallies of Hindu castes. All most all castes are demanding to be declared as backward and most backward so as to be included in BC category, if not in SC or ST category.
It is strange why Hindus are not reacting; why they also cannot form pressure groups and invite the leaders of political parties and place before them Hindu grievances and seek their reddressal from them, telling that if they only concede what Christians and Muslims are demanding and not what Hindus are requesting, they would vote only for such candidates and parties which secure for Hindus justice and equality with the minorities. This itself is a humiliating thought that an 85% Hindu population of a state is wanting equal treatment, equal to that of the militant and organized minorities of alien faiths. If in these General Elections, governments which are pro-minority and apathetic to, if not inimical to Hindus, come to power then, Hindus can be sure relapsed to dhimmitude; that is, second rate tolerated persons paying Jejia type taxes for the benefit of the ruling minorities who have seized power. They will thus prove the prophesy that Dr B R Ambedkar made at the session of the Constituent Assembly which finally adopted the Constitution of India:
:…..Here I could have ended. But my mind is so full of the future of our country that I feel I ought to take this occasion to give expression to some of my reflections thereon. On 26th January 1950, India will be an Independent country. (Cheers) What would happen to her Independence? Will she maintain her Independence or will she lose it again? This is the first thought that comes to my mind. It is not that India was never an Independent country. The point is that she once lost the Independence she had. Will she lose it a second time> it is this thought which makes me most anxious for the future. What perturbs me greatly is the fact that not only India has once before lost her Independence, but she lost it by the infidelity and treachery of some of her own people..”.
It may be worthwhile recalling that Dr B R Ambedkar, the great statesmen and nationalist refused to convert himself and his flock to Islam or to Christianity holding that they are not Indian origin religions. He advised people to take to Buddhism which is an Indian origin religion, in the line of India’s millennial culture. Finally, we advise our readers to imbibe the wisdom contained in the following inimitable and challenging words of Winston S Churchill:
IF YOU WILL NOT FIGHT.....
"If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."
