While converting, Christians sow anti-national sentiments among Hindus! – Smt. Esther Dhanraj, Co-Director, Bhagavad Gita Foundation for Vedic Studies, Bhagyanagar, Telangana
Ramnathi : When Christians convert Hindus, they sow anti-national sentiments in them. This policy is not limited to India, but also to the country where Christians go. Christians have been using this policy since the year 1700, said Mrs. Esther Dhanraj, co-director of the Bhagavad Gita Foundation for Vedic Studies in Telangana. She was speaking during the first session ‘Preventing Religious Conversion and Ghar Wapsi of the Converted’ on day 3 of the 10th Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Rashtra Adhiveshan, on ‘The plight of Christianity in the West and its impact on India’.
While continuing, Smt. Esther said,
1. According to a survey conducted by an American organization, 47% of Christians there do not go to church. Because of this, Christians have turned their attention to other religions and have started the work of converting them. This is why Hindus are being ‘brainwashed’.
2. Christians regularly take their children to church. It is also necessary for Hindu parents to teach their children Hindu Dharma.
3. If Christians are converting with rice bags, then Hindus should stop this conversion using rice bags. (‘If Christians use food as a lure, then Hindus should take the responsibility of feeding the poor Hindus and stop them from converting.)
4. Hindu organizations should help needy Hindus. If it is not possible to provide financial assistance, then we need to stand firmly with the needy Hindus.
5. We have to fight on individual, organized, constitutional and spiritual levels to protect Dharma. If we make a concerted effort, God will have to give us the Hindu Rashtra.
What kind of secularism allows for religion-based dole-outs to Muslims and Christians ? – M. Nageshwar Rao, former interim Director, CBI
The tax money that fills the government coffers is secular, but its benefit is limited only to certain communities. There is a separate ministry for minority welfare, but absolutely no ministry to look after the welfare of the Hindu majority. Over the last 8 years, the central government has spent Rs 37,669 crores on minorities, through various schemes. This figure would double if funds spent on minorities by different states are added to it. This money is being spent on Muslims and Christians who constitute around 20% of India’s population (as per the 2011 census). Obviously, financial assistance should be rendered to those who are in need, but why drag religion into developmental works? This is appeasement. The Parsis, who are also identified as minorities, only receive a limited amount out of these funds. The Jain community is usually self-sufficient, while the Buddhists tend to align with the Hindus. Therefore most of the money is spent on Muslims and Christians. What kind of secularism allows for such huge religion-based dole-outs? If the Constitution is secular, then everyone should be treated equally.
Practicing spirituality according to Hindu Dharma created love and affection among other religions ! – Swami Nirgunanand Puri, Treasurer and Sakha Sachiv, International Vedanta Society, Kolkata, Bengal
Swami Vivekananda had said that Hindus have a lot of spiritual wealth and they are unaware of it. This is the situation of Hindus. Although there are many Hindus in the world, there are few Hindus who perform deeds according to Hindu Dharma. Indonesia has a large Muslim population. They have also taken initiation from the maulvis (from the religious leaders of Islam). Despite this, after sharing about ‘Adhyatma’ and ‘Vedas’ online, some Muslims there are becoming attracted towards Hindu Dharma. Love and affection have grown in them just by practicing spirituality according to Hindu Dharma. They have noted that in Sanatan Hindu Dharma, love and not violence is taught. Christians in Europe do not go to church, they are Christians in name only. Through online outreach, we also asked such people to spend a few days in spiritual fellowship with us. After doing so, they gradually developed an interest and love for Hindu Dharma. Later on, when they start doing spiritual practice, they will experience our beautiful spiritual power. In this way, we can transform the whole world into a Hindu Rashtra. We say ‘Satyamev Jayate’. Victory cannot be achieved without Truth. The teaching of salvation and liberation in Hindu scriptures is not given in other religions of the world.
If Hindus follow the path shown by Dharma, they will definitely get power even without the support of those in power ! – Shri. Neeraj Atri, Chairman, Vivekananda Karya Samiti, Panchkula, Haryana
Many Muslims want to leave Islam. They need help. In the past, those who had undergone Ghar Wapsi (conversion from Islam to Hinduism) did not face their community; But now many Muslims who have embraced Hindu Dharma are coming to the fore. In the Muslim community, shops are run in the name of Islam. Looking at the history of the last 100 years, Muslims have perpetrated atrocities on Hindus and their women. After studying this, Swami Dayanand Saraswati first started the ‘Ghar Wapsi’ movement; However, in the year 1914, Mohandas Gandhi started putting the awakened Hindu community back to sleep. Gandhi weakened Hindus by preaching non-violence and inter-religious harmony. In recent times, social media has started responding to attacks on Hindus and Hindu Dharma. This is unprecedented. Former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma has been on the receiving end of malevolent treatment from religious fanatics and goons; But Hindus must support Sharma. Issues like Gyanvapi need to be continuously addressed. If Hindus follow the path shown by Dharma, they will definitely get power even without the support of those in power.
