CHRISTIANITY IN INDIA


India is home to many famous religions and cultures in the world. Various religions like Hinduism apart from Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism started in India. Other religions Islam and Christianity have also flourished in India.
2001 census shows population of Christians at a total of 24,080,016 which equates to 2.30% of India’s population.

National Commission for Minorities (NCM) said there has been “abnormally high” growth of Christian population in the North-East,especially in the districts bordering Bangladesh, and the Commission had sought details from the Christian leadership.While the proportion of Christians in India has remained the same for both decades – 1991 and 2001 at 2.3 per cent – in terms of percentage, Nagaland, Mizoram and Meghalaya have the highest percentage of Christians – 90 per cent, 87 per cent and 70.3 per cent respectively, NCM Chairman S Tarlochan Singh said.

Reportedly Missionaries are systematically targeting specific regions of India in hopes of converting the entire nation to their brand of fanatic Christianity. Below is a detailed look into their designs and plans......Read full report here( http://www.christianaggression.org/features_survey.php ) It just might surprise everyone.

The 2005 edition of the World Christian Database   (http://www.worldchristiandatabase.org/)   says that India is now 6% Christian. The government of India last conducted a census on the Indian population in 2001 said that Hindus were 81.4% of the population followed by Muslims at 12.4% and Christians at 2.3 %( Read full report here). However, the more recent data from the World Christian Database states that Hindus are now 74% of the population and Christians are 6% of the population. The new survey claims that Catholics have grown from 1.52% of the population in 1970 to 1.66% in 2005. The recent data suggests that the rampant and aggressive conversion by Christian missionaries is much more widespread than previously acknowledged.

By 2050, Christian Missionaries want to make South India a Christian majority finishing off Hinduism (ttp://xa.yimg.com/kq/groups/23559769/422571809/name/THREAT+to+HINDUISM.pdf

Alarming facts. As long as minorities are treated as vote banks, politics and religion will be used in this manner.

Happy Kitten said...

Well...govt. needs to have stricter rules against conversion..no other way...

Sandhya said...

We have to be worried about this new data. Many of my servants relatives are gradually converting into Christianity. Some people follow the Hindu rituals. Many of them abuse Hindu members of their family. They are abusing their own ancestors, I told a converted Christian. The population in NE are mostly Christians and they are very fluent in English because of the Christian influence. One main reason for this, I feel, is the negligence of our Govt. in treating these territories very badly.

When I visited St.John's hospital in Bangalore, to visit a friend who had a by-pass surgery said that they openly compel the people who cannot afford good treatment to get converted and have free treatment. He said that he himself noticed 3 families converting within a week. Our religious leaders should open good schools and hospitals to treat the poor. Then this trend might come down. Don't you think so, Chowlaji?

Our driver payes 10% of his salary compulsarily to his church every month! Every member of the Church are asked to do so, he says!

This is becoming a post! Thanks for the details, Chowlaji!

Usha Menon said...

Your observations are correct. Conversion laws have to made very stringent.

Sushma Harish said...

Unfortunately the conversions go on and ate financialky politically motivated. Mangalore opposes this in strong fashion.

samurai said...

Mr Chowla, the religion that you call hinduism was fashioned by adi sankara around 700 AD. Thomas had reached India in 10 AD. Islam reached India by 700 AD. It might amaza you that your so-called hinduism is a new entry among religions. Sikhism, Arya Samaj, Lingayat religion are the religions that succeeded your so-called hinduism. buddhism and jainism are the original religions of the sub-continet, both dating from before christ. at around the same time, the secularism of saivism was flourishing in the south of the subcontinent.

samurai said...

the distance from kochi, ie adi sankaras origin, to karachi in sind is around 2000 kms. from karachi, sind to jerusalem, ie St Thomas' origin, is around 3200 kms. what is the big deal in 1000 kms difference. the person living in kochi and the person living in karachi have totalle different cultures and lifestyles. kindly make yourself aware that this so-called hinduism that you are talking about is the biggest sham that ever took place on this planet. please do not be a part of this sham.

Insignia said...

Well, no offense to anyone but I have witnessed being offered spiritual, emotional and financial support to people who can get converted. Now when majority of our country has poor and lower middle class folks who are abounded by friends, family and are in need of money do get any one of them, they get converted.

Blame the government. Blame the people. Its not only the missionaries or the people who insist to convert are culprits.

Shilpa Garg said...

Agree with Insignia. The financial and emotional support that people get motivates them to convert. When we were in Jammu, the traffic was moving slowly as there was a peace march by the Christians passing by. A look at the crowd and they were all Punjabis... (you can make them out by their build and dressing style)...

I posted my comments yesterday and it has vanished today.

BK Chowla, said...

samurai,
Hi,it's been a long time since you visited here.Good to see you.
Trust me,it is not me v/s you or Hinduism v/s Christianity.
Every word that I have written is supported by backups.
Have you been able to visit the various sites ref given in the post.If not,please do so and then please feel free to comment anything you want to.
Difference is......you are expressing sentiments and I have quoted documented statistics and numbers.
But,the fact is that all if us of any religion is respected in
India and that is why India is called a functional democracy.
I would appreciate if you keep visiting more often.

BK Chowla, said...

Alka Gruha,
All the acts are based on deep research.
But,where is India heading?

BK Chowla, said...

Happy Kitten,
Well,govt has been winning votes on minority appeasment policy

BK Chowla, said...

Usha Menon,
Govt will never ever change any policy which will cut into their votes.Damn the national interests

BK Chowla, said...

Shilpa Garg,
I know..even I have noticed these incidents.
Can we call this..Hindu tolerance..?Govt policies..? Or accept it as a process in a democracy?

BK Chowla, said...

Insignia,
Bindu,I am concerned.I actually dont know if we should be blaming anyone.I am not sure of numbers,but,it seems there is a massive drive to get conversions going.

BK Chowla, said...

Sushma Harish,
Yes,situation is alarming.It is not in Mangalore.They are identifying areas with great research.

BK Chowla, said...

Sandhya,
Yes,it seems they have taken conversion program seriously.There is very little one can do about it and in a democracy one is free to choose ones religion.

BK Chowla, said...

Musings,
Your comments are very much there---right here

samurai said...

mr chowla, anyone, at least in the south, who sees some RSS/VHP talking on behalf of the Hindus, will want to be out of this so-called religion. till adi sankara wrecked the Indian subcontinent and caused mass killings of buddhists, we were a dynamic country. ashoka, kanishka and harsha were buddhists. so were many kings of the south. the philosophy of buddhism brings unity and frees the mind. what adi sankara did was to win back a return to the blind ritualism. from that moment on, it was all fractured and disintegrated. this hindutva is the thing that caused the downfall of us and the subcontinent. it is a horrendously and hopelessly failed ideology, and that is why lingayats, sikhs etc broke away. many others are breaking away, will break away. what you are referring to will happen in 2025, not in 2050. only then will our people be free, to dream, create and realise all their potential. if there is really any case at all for this so-called hinduism, someone needs to state that the caste system, ie the hierarchical model, is a shame. next, they have to realise that saivism and vaishnavism are fundamentally different schools of thought. some childish attempts have been made to create fables about sivan and vishnu having reconciled to each other, as if there are two different persons, out there somewhere in the universe. they are two different thought schools, that attempted to make sense of the world. exactly like the fundamentally different thought schools of dvaita and advaita. as of today, hindutva is based on falsehood, lies and nonsense. the propagators of this hindutva, try to make out a scenario as if we are the only people with religious thinking, as if we are the only people with noble living, as if we are the only people that was afflicted by invasions, as if we are the only people with elevated thinking. it is a big bunch of lies, and nothing else. in 500 BC, the philosophers of greece were arguing logically, and not attempting fancy thoughts about the moment of creation. even today, we cannot have a reasoned debate on logic, on the lines of socrates and plato. we just have some people who pretend that they are in connection with some divine aspect. if there is any good in our civilisation, it must be set aside from the diseased aspects. the most primary thing to do in that direction is to get rid of the advanis, modis, swarajs who would like all o0f us to continue to be idiots, and to continue to sink in hatred, so that they come to power, and continue the dominance of the brahmin community. you have to make it clear, whether you are interested in hinduism of the millions or brahminism of the 5%.

Hey SAMURAI ..What do u know about saint adi shankara ? Blind stupid converted Christians like U are not even eligible to speak about him... India should be made a Hindu country like Nepal.. Christianity is a rapidly spreading virus supported by money... If India became a Christian country then there ll no space for peace, harmony, and truth... As said in ur stupid book bible, u ppl a satans... Ur Pope says Thomas never came to India... And even if we assume that he came to India he came to India , its b4 or after British swines rule.... God should only save India from Christian beasts and sonia Gandhi !

Hi MR who ever you what do you know about Hinduism, Hinduism is something who thought about untouchable and lower caste, what do you know about Christ and his teaching I am not talking about Christianity for namesake, Hinduism kept women at home and no freedom, education given to her and sati system, shameful, you say If India became Christian nation there will no peace and harmony, where in hindu scripture teach love your enemy, forgive, love your neighbour, stories like good Samaritan. why is there no hindu temple in abroad so called Christian nation and I know their belief in Christ is declining not because they are fed up its because they don't want to follow the teaching of Bible who teaches to be holy from fornication, adultery, gay marriage. You call Bible stupid book, what do you know its not mythology like our book where God itself got married and had many wives, and they is no one who had not sinned. I know the next thought in your mind about Christ being married to mary Magdalene and it was story created people like you who hate Christ and there is no solid evidence found on which everyone agree on.

Hindu gods are imaginary and not real it arises from novels like ramayan etc. Christianity never injects communalism and terrorism to grow relgion like hindus and mislims. Hindus are the cruellest and narrow minded people in the in the world (for eg in gujarath it was organised by BJP govt.) there is only one Hindu nation in the world (except nepal)other wise hindu terrosrists would have killed all the minority people in india. afraid of RSS bjp hindu terrorists going behind

jude said...

just wanna ask one thing when ill Hindus leave cast ism,communal ism v are Christians and we are a bunch of peaceful,civilized, and soft spoken group not like illiterate,Hindus breaking temples ,breaking church you can distinguish between a Christan an Hindu just by their behavior,gentleness

George Egms said...

Many say ill of Christ. By doing so one day you will come to Christianity. Ask the converts who are now Christians, they will tell you. As a rule If you won’t convert then your children will become Christians. This has happened ever since Christianity was formed. Praise be the Name of the LORD.

Christianity is not a religion..it is a relationship with Christ..Only one person has died for the sins of all people..all people include hindus , muslims , Jews and every single denominations. .if we believe in Him we are saved eternally! Jesus is the only way to Heaven..The is no other way brothers and sisters..Give hin a chance in your life and see the wonders of God in your life. If you want to know more about God read the bible. GOD BLESS YOULL

I am an Indian Christian and after reading this blog I can conclude hinduism is the most stupid,lunatic,insane and absurd religion on earth.How much,intolerant we have already seen in 2008 Kandhamal riots.Parents disown their own children if they convert to christianity by what tolerant hindu logic I don't know.The most clear example is Nepal as soon as it became a democracy 1 million people converted to Christianity and estimates are of more who are not registered as Nepal was the last hindu stand it perished.What hindu philosophy or god or godess failed to protect it,I don't know or may be because hinduism is just an evil imagination of some stupid people.Only Lord Jesus Christ can save India now from hinduism.May Lord Jesus bless India(Prabhu Yeeshu hi satya marga aur jeevan hai.Let us all say Jai Yeeshu)

please don't fight on the basis of religion....it is going to do no one good...every person should have the free wil to chose his faith...many hindus will be more open minded about other religions due to the effect of globalisation..it is in the natural course of things..many socalled christiansof europe left their faith in christ when they were exposed to ideas of free thinking and globalistion...muslims if ever given free will,they will also change their faiths....

Respected people,

Can one anyone change his/her parents????

In the same manner one cannot change their Religion which has been practised upon for such a long period of time..and if a person changes means it shows how much ruthless he has become....adopting an alien custom which is no way related to them...the teachings of Jesus may or may not be good....it was for the people around his place where he lived if he had said so...moreover the teachings of Jesus was not written during his period they were written down by 4 people during four different periods of time after a long period of time after his death...People have been made to believe that it is the teachings of Jesus...Christianity & people following it have been fooled for more than 2000 years now believing some ones ideologies(people who wrote it)....Hinduism has been preaching Love ,affection & compassion much before these people have been doing so..the caste system,during the years of conquest of the Muslims & British have been completely tinkered & portrayed as it had done utmost worst thing to the people & country and these religions have been projecting themselves as the saviours of the people & the country..
I feel very sad for the people getting converted because they dont understand that they are getting into a vicious trap which the other religions have done before....
Earlier they did it with force killing more than Crores of Hindu people, one of the best brains in the world , why did they do so it is because for a simple reason they did not want our best of our brains to survive so that there wouldnt be any kind of resistance to their preachings & ideologies...

When our great ancestors were technically advanced in all aspects of life...people from other religions were just forest dwellers or sheepherders etc..

When they came across to our land of plenty they were completely awestruck by the growth & prosperity ....and started plundering our wealth & massacaring people....our country was plundered for more than 1500 years .....

The Christian missionaries now act as if they are doing a Social service to our country & people and keep propogating Hate speeches against our religion& Gods....

they are giving us nothing but PEANUTS when compared to the bounty they had stolen from our country.....our country was the richest country in the world before the advent of the Britishers, by the time they left we had become one of the poorest...

Muslims are even more cruel & Barbaric & they are using the Money stolen to Kill other people in the name of JIHAD...

So my dear converted people....Pls think for a moment....can you go & ask the people of Britain,USA,Italy,Saudi arabia,etc... to convert to other religions......Mind you , you will be murdered ...it is the Openess of Hinduism which has allowed people to go this farther....instigating the complete destruction of the Hindu religion..

But remember too much of unwanted pressure ....will make people to erupt like a Volcano destroying the radical forces & elements altogether..

Well my brothers and sisters in India got to understand and admit the truth. Christianity is booming in all asian countries not only India. Look at china ! China will be tha largest christian nation by 2025 if the current rate goes on !!!!! The Communists are still scratching their heads what they might do !!! The Christian Church is built on the rock called JESUS Christ and the gates of hell will not overcome it !!!!! Where ever there is christian persecution ,there will be tremendous growth of the church as well !!!! The truth is like sun, It will rise whether you like it or not !!

and another thing in my early life I always go with all types flowers and coconut and vibhutis and scent sticks to see the Idols in that temple or man made images and bow before them and saluted and wasted my time
and Now every day I will go to my room or my cabin close the door and bow before the real GOD and tell all my doings. Whenever I cry I will have the things before me. What I need he will provide in time. Whoever reading this leave all your doings bow before him one day definitely he will judge.
