Pastor Jayakumar of Kallukotam, Kanyakumari Dist, Tamilnadu used loudspeakers as part of his evangelising campaign from his house.When villagers protested, Pastor Jayakumar complained to the District Collector. But the Collector ordered that a residential place cannot be converted into a Church.

Pastor Jayakumar went to the Madras High court appealing against the Collectors' order. Justice Suguna who heard the case dismissed the petition of Pastor and ordered that ‘ a residential place cannot be used for evangelism and upheld the District Collector's order’.

Don't use residential places
I request all Hindu schools and colleges to start a project to invent a loudspeaker jammer. Just like a mobile phone jammer, this will be of great use to curb the howls of the desert religionists.

Why shouldn't hindus proselitize
Hindus don't have to try and cram their religion down people's throat like Chrisitans and Muslims do. But nothing stops them from ringing those bells loud and clear, and fixing mega-loudspeakers to trees and blaring out "ohm namah shivaya' or 'Hare rama hare krishan' at 4:00 am in the morning. Out-shout the allah-cries, and soon you will find the muslims willing to negotiate a settlement over time and duration of these cries.

counter at the same coin
Opposing the constitutional rights physicaly will get our brethren land in jail, so we should intellectualy fight evangelisation.
The evanglists zealously propagate their faiths through various means , here i feel how can we counter them.

1. The pastors visit the dalit ghettos and provides physical and spiritual support , they sit and eat together and welcomes dalit's children to their English medium schools. they will provide food, medicines and other utensils also

The same way the traditional Hindu priests should do - 'Manava seva is Madhava seva'.

2.The evangelists provide micro crdeits to poor families and provide group prayers which has its own spiritual advantage
Hindus should emulate this

the right to practise,preach and propagate one's religion is safe guarded in the Indian constitution written by baba Saheb Ambedkar. first thing he did after drafting our constitution is to burn symbolicaly the Manu smruti. Apperently he drafted this clause in view of the subjugation practiced in Hinduism under aegis of caste

Opposing the constitutional rights physicaly will get our brethren land in jail, so we should intellectualy fight evangelisation

right to protect one's religion
At present, the Indian constitution provides for a right to practise and propagate one's religion. This right to propagate is abused by the so called minorities and, as the Hindus do not have this concept of propagation, they are placed at a disadvantage vis-a-vis these minorities. So the constitution should also provide for a right to 'protect' one's religion so that Hindus can physically oppose conversion of other co-Hindus.

Counter Evangelism
If Christians evangelize, let us practice counter evangelism with following mantra:
How can a man who could not save himself, become savior of entire Mankind? Christianity is the biggest fraud ever to be perpetrated on humanity. Why should God turn infertile after siring just one son? Jesus Christ- if he ever existed- tried to establish a parallel power center claiming divine authority. Naturally, he invited wrath of the ruler who sentenced him to death like a rebel. Christian Church follow such perfidy all over the world to enjoy power and exploit people .That's all the 'Truth' about Christianity.

Why is evangelism even allowed?
While this is a good court order, evangelism/conversions should be banned. We are a Hindu majority country and would like to remain as one. Jayalalitha had introduced an anti-conversion law the last time she was in power, but the demographics seems to have changed enough that she is reluctant to bring up this law again. That itself is an alarming sign!

Powerful loudspeakers from masjids
The noise from the towers of masjids five times a day just gets louder and longer day by day. A masjid in a chennai neighborhood has now procured very powerful loudspeakers to call out to allah five times a day, starting at 5:00 in the morning. Once, some grandkids of neighbor who were visiting the neighbor starting crying when they were rudely woken up very early in the morning (not even 5:00 in the morning) by the loud wails from the masjid.

Some years ago, the loud wailing was only for a minute, but now the duration has increased from a minute to five minutes, and on some days to 10 minutes at a stretch.

Why should all Indians have this forced upon them - is there no sound ordinance that not only curtails the time and duration and decibles in place to protect the fundamental rights of citizens to not go deaf nor have their sleep or life constantky interrupted by these muslim maniacs.

If the muslims won't stop, then let the temple bells (with loudspeakers attached everywhere) ring out at 4:00 in the morning late at night everyday.

"Silence Please" is applicable only to Hindus
Blocking the main road for prayers and obstructing traffic and human movement - not an offence if done by minorities.

Loud prayers through powerful loudspeakers tied on the tree-top or at top of the buildings - not an offence if done by minorities.

The moment a Hindu conduct Pooja in a make-shift pandal, Police permission is impossible; even if granted, it is on strict time and other specified conditions. Many a times I wondered are we really living in a Hindu-majority country.

Atleast some Courts are looking at it is a welcome move.
