Karnataka Lingayats targeted for conversion by Christian missionaries

Lingayats Targeted for Conversion
August 11, 2008 ·

To Lingayats, perhaps this is old news. To those in the U.S. or married to Lingayats this may come as a shock. I knew I was shocked and angered to discover that Lingayats are being specifically targeted by American Evangelicals for conversion.

Satya is not shocked at all. He’s heard of Christian missionaries settling near his home. He says that some people are initially tolerant of missionaries, until they discover that the missionaries are trying to convert them. Then there are reactions such as the missionary being ignored, beat up, or of people converting for material benefits.
