Recently a few days back tribal-majority Mandla district of Madhya Pradesh came in the news because of the sexual exploitation of girl students in Junwani Christian mission school at Dindori, a small township under it. Even the principal of the school and the Padre of the church are alleged to have been found to be involved in this bizarre incident. Notably against the principle, Nan Singh Yadav, local Yadav Mahasabha has furiously stood up in agitation.
The issue of contention is that despite having embraced Christianity Nan Singh Yadav has not changed his Hindu name, due to which the entire community is subjected to bear the brunt of social stigma.
However, this is not something to have been heard of for the first time in the country. The latest to emerge high in priority in the book of Christian mission is the state of Punjab.
First, ambition among the people to land in Canada, America and other countries; second, on one side the peril of cancer and drug addiction; and, third, the lack of medical facilities have provided Christian missionaries with fertile ground in Punjab to deepen their tentacles. Through duping the victims to have their ambition fulfilled and ailments cured through so-called divine intervention in ‘Changai Utsav’ that the Christian fathers and their syndicate have unleashed the rein of evangelization.
It is not due to nothing that the biggest Church of Asia is coming up in Jalandhar. More than 10% of the Christian population of the State is the cause behind this ‘outstanding’ achievement. And the man who led the project is also said to be the one Christian with Hindu name !
Just remember on the occasion of Christmas what Rahul-Priyanka’s favourite former CM Charanjeet Singh Channi had said in the conference of ‘ Voice of Peace Ministry’. ‘I have faith in Christianity. Born as Sikh, I love Christ though.’ – was the sentiment of his heart thus expressed unabashedly. On this former President of Delhi Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee, Manjinder Singh Sirsa, had then reacted that what could be far more painful and a matter of shame for Punjab that its own Chief Minister was justifying the conversion in the State.
Late Rajshekhar Reddy’s (YSR’s) father adopted Christianity. Later when YSR’s daughter Sharmila wanted to wed with Brahmin youth, Anil Kumar, living in America, she could do that only when he had embraced Christianity. And thus came into being one more crypto Christian; who then grew in prominence as a Christian preacher ‘Brother Anil’, redeeming the suffered and sorrowful by the virtue of the grace of Christ inviting them in so-called Changai-Utsav. As YSR became Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh it is said that the evangelization events held by Anil Kumar drew the people in droves. Voices too were raised against such events making the people forsaking Hinduism by deception. But nothing happened as Sonia Gandhi’s UPA government was there at the centre.
