VHP hopes to win back Mangalore’s neo-converts

It was an issue waiting to explode. Although there was talk about forcible conversions in Karnataka, things had not taken such a drastic turn until Mangalore burnt for three days in a row. Not only Mangalore, but incidents of Hindu activists desecrating churches and places of worship were reported from Udupi, Chickmagalur and also Davangere.

According to the Bajrang Dal, nearly 15,000 people have been forced to embrace Christianity in Mangalore alone in the past one year. They said they have been watching the situation and had even warned against forcible conversions, but no one paid heed to their advice.

While the Catholics have openly condemned forcible conversions, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad has embarked upon a mission called as reconversion. The VHP claimed they have managed to re-convert at least 50,000 persons in Karnataka alone.

The VHP has set up a team that is actively involved in reconversion. This team is assigned the task of visiting the houses of persons who have converted to Christianity. They meet with these persons regularly and convince them to come back to their original faith.

Once these persons are convinced that they want to return to their original faith, then a priest from the Veerashaiva mutt visits the house and performs a ritual called as the ‘Ling Dharana’. A VHP leader told rediff.com that they focus more on persons who have been converted recently through inducements. Those who have embraced the religion voluntarily many years back are not the target here.

It is said that conversions are highest in the north Karnataka regions of Bijapur where the Lambanis and other tribals have been converted. Apart from this, conversions are also rampant in Mangalore and the Hyderabad-Karnataka region, according to Hindu activists.

      Forced conversions in any form from any religion and for any religion is bad!

      But conversion if its ones own will cannot exactly be considered as wrong ,every person has a the fundamental right to choose and follow ones own religion.

      If a person is christian or muslim or belongs to any other minority it does not make him any less Indian than a hindu person.

      No body should be ashamed of their religion because somebody else says so,religion is a persons own belief.

      There are people who don’t even believe in any religions ,it doesn’t make them any culprits to be mocked for.

      I believe all people visiting and maintaining these sites should be well read and informed so i guess isn’t if we spread a little bit of more love our country would become a better place.

      Preach LOVE and not HATRED

      Hinduism cannot be destroyed and I personally don’t want it to be destroyed but if it is the ” proved,tested and scientific” way of life then other religions are the way of life for other people.

      I had read Hinduism believes that all religions lead to the same God,so I guess converted or not our good deeds would reach to the same Lord.

      Our country is beautiful because it has so many different “flowers” spreading fragnances.

      And if any religion spreads “Satanic something” let God decide and not us trying to be God.

      No religion gives the right to any person to create a stir of hatredness and it is the only thing that will destroy our country

    Let me tell you some thing Jhon. this forcible conversion is not new,. What you are witnessing is nothing but accumulated anger over the past few centuries.
    If you are not aware, here is some information that is a fact that you can not deny.
    Hindus are far from being the heathens, as had been portrayed in Europe, Hindu only believed God’s diversity, the wonderful concept of avatar, but had given refuge to all persecuted minorities of the world, whether the Syrian Christians, the Parsis, the Jews (India is the only country in the world where Jews were not persecuted), the Armenians, or today the Tibetans. So dont you DARE blame the country. For 300 years conversions have been happening in this country with out much resistance and now when the you have the NERVE to blame the hindus . Enough is enough .We are hospitable people but every thing has a limit.I do not intend to promote the violence that has been going on.But i can definitely patronize with what is going on. Our love and compassion has been misused.

    There is another thing that the rest of the world has to understand.Hindusim is NOT i repeat NOT A religion. It is a way of life that has been followed even before GREAT MOSES was born ,. The term hinduism was given by british. As they did NOT know how else to refer to it. If you wanna show anger show it at the people who are converting Us.
    Just thought you should know. Making use of a persons weakness to change his faith is a bigger sin than the violence that you witness right now. Buying people into christianity is going to give you a much bigger punsihment as you are not physically damaging them but cutting them of from their very roots.
    This is a SATANIC trait.SO u make your choice on where you want to be.
    I totally agree that you are supporting your religion, but do it the right way.

    well john, no matter where you are from in India, please remember your ancestors were Hindus. Do not try to justify your shame by practicing false evangelism!

    Christans have no right to talk about persecution and human rights. It is the very same religion that has supressed the indigenouse people of Europe, America, Australia, Asia and Africa. The very same christians who have colonised the world, eliminated indigenous cultures and replaced them with a European language and christianity. I infact dont believe in blaming the european race because had they remained polytheists, I dont think we would have had to worry about colonialism and genocide.

    Christianity is a narrow minded religion and the doctrines explicitly state that none go to God except through jesus, etc etc blah blah blah. As for John who says forcible conversion is unchristian how does that seperate you from those who engage in forced conversion. Your mentality still states that you have no tolerance for Hinduism. So I guess you may have a different approach into getting Hindus to become christains. In my eyes how the hell are you differnt from those extreamist christians apart from maybe your more toned down approach in gaining converts (??? yeah right!!!). If people need to pay for their crimes then those to first be punished are the christians and muslims for genocide. Until both you people make a global public apology for racial, ethnic and cultural genocide dont talk to a Hindu about tolerance.

    dear brother.. Christianity is the only proven religion for health, education, joy, peace and happiness. example usa, england, europe. like three religions.. Three medicines are also there. sidha and kasini leaves wilL NOT CURE YOU. Only christian medicines you people swallow without shame. Alongwith christian inventions. if you people have 1% self privilege eat sidha medicines first. in india 3% are bold open christians. Rest 87% are coward secret christians.

    Till we have Congress in this country,Hinduism will always be threatened.In this case,I would not like to blame the Christian evengelist.Its their duty to convert people by hook or by crook.They are paid for this work!!!
    What I find shameful is the attitude of most Hindus.In India talking about religious issues is seen as anti-secular. though there are 80% hindus,we still have to accomodate the rest.In other Islamic and some Christian countries,the minorities are dont have enough freedom to practise their faith even though they are peaceful and integrate well with society.
    In India,foreign faiths have not done anything productve.We were slaves of Muslims rulers and then of Christian British.Still,shamelessly,people from India accept these faiths.
    People who do us have no respect for their ancestoral tradition.Either hindus should help these low esteem people or treat it as black sheep leaving the faith of this land.
    Jai Hind

    No one should dream of destroying Hindus, it will always be a dream….even Jesus was a Hindu…ha ha

  13. 15 hinduism can not be destroyed December 31, 2010 at 12:15 pm

    Dear Indians,

    Remember this, End of Kaliyuga – God Vishnu will come & kill the sathans like other religion terriorists..that i am sure..

    Hinduism has proved that existence over millions of year. Example – Rama bridge near srilanka, Ayothi temple etc..

    It’s not just faith, it has lots of scientific stuff(we cant completely read everything)…

    – Hindu(Proud to say this)

  15. 17 manoj (true hindu from madurai age 17) June 24, 2011 at 7:40 pm

    What is happening with a forced conversion?

    – A destitute hopeless person’s poverty is exploited by a foreign-funded missionary, who regards the former as an inferior being. In proving that inferiority, there are attacks on the rights of others to practice their religions – this is against secularism.

    – A person made destitute by a natural disaster is also at such risk of being exploited. One bishop described the Bihar floods as a divine event that “sent the heathen flocking” to the church.

    – A person’s religious affiliation is “bought.” Would we be concerned if votes were bought in a similar way? What implications does that have for democracy? Especially one in which political parties play religious politics, appealing to religious vote banks. Hence, conversion becomes a political event.

    – When one person converts, their family suffers, as it is tantamount to the convert rejecting the ways of his/her family. As such it is an act of violence, if they are forcibly converted in a “convert or die” ultimatum.

    Read Naipal’s Among the Believers and Beyond Belief to see the extent of the self-deception – invented relatives, denied family histories, the rejection of affinity to one’s own country replaced by a glorification of some foreign land. Quite a number of British Muslim converts from Pakistan hate Britain even though they are citizens. The Taliban extremists blew up the Bamiyan Buddhas, too, to cover up their pre-Islamic history.

    -According to Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation, “Conversion nowadays has become a matter of business, like any other. India is in no need of conversion of this kind. To those who would convert India, might it not be said, “Physician, heal yourself.” (Young India: 23 April 1931)

    – Usually conversion is a precursor to some other form of invasion. Her Majesty’s armed forces consisted of the Admiralty, the Air Force, the Army and the Church.

    – Those opposed to forcible conversion, such as Swami Lakshmanananda of Orissa, have been assassinated by those fundamentalists who are for it.

    If this was a harmless thing, no one would oppose it. The fact is, forced conversions are harmful. To reject the harm caused by forcible conversions and saying it is ok, is to look at life with blinkers on.
