Hindu youth group creates ruckus over conversion of Dalits 

Bhadohi: Activists allegedly belonging to the right-wing Hindu Yuva Vahini (HVY), founded by Yogi Adityanath, on May 19 created ruckus at Aurai in this district of Uttar Pradesh over “forcible conversion” of Dalits.

The activists reached a newly constructed house in Tiuri village that was being used as church and alleged that forcible conversion of Dalits to Christianity was going on there.

They also caught hold of a person, Ajmon Abraham from Kerala, for his alleged involvement in the conversion. When police reached there the activists handed over Abraham to them.
SHO of Aurai police station Onkar Singh Yadav said a probe into the matter was on and Abraham was being interrogated.

“We are asking the villagers, who were allegedly converted, to know the reality. Security has been enhanced around the house being used as church,” he said.

District in-charge of the HVY Surabh Sharma claimed that forcible conversion was going on in the house and administration was informed earlier about it, India Today reported.

Last month, police had stopped a church event attended by more than 150 people, including 10 American tourists, in Maharajganj after the HYV alleged that religious conversion was being carried out.

The right-wing group was set up in 2002 by Yogi Adityanath, now the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister.

    Vincent Bagul: Have you ever read this verse in the Bible?

    The Spirit of the Lord is with me,
    because He has anointed me to
    preach the good news to the poor.
    He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
    and recovery of sight for the blind,
    to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. Luke 4:18,19. The Gospel of JESUS CHRIST is the message of redemption for the whole humanity, it is not the ” gospel of capitalism”.

    Six Stats of India have anti-conversion law, which is a clear-cut proof that India is not a democracy but a theocracy. The cow mother worshipers will be creating far greater terror for the poor discarded people of the society, but the rich are exempted to convert.

    The book of Ecclesiasticus says that there is a time for everything, and Jesus also advised his disciples to read the signs of the times. At this time discretion is the better part of valour. Just last Sunday a young man knocked at my gate to tell me about Jesus, and he was pretty persistent, even though I told him that I was a Christian.It is this time of misplaced enthusiasm that invites trouble.When will we learn?

    Why do the Evangelists or Preachers try to convert the poor and illiterate Dalits or tribals? They should change their strategy and try to convert rich and highly educated people who are interested.

    Is there freedom for citizens to talk,converse, discuss about Christ and his teachings ? No bishops,no yuvavahini, no govt. Officials care to study this question and answer. So madness prevail, hatred prevails, fear prevails. Can we get answer to this question from our Politicians and Govts ?
    Is Christ so inhuman and cruel that he should be banned from India ? If not why a compaign against the freedom through goons a elements?
