” The missionary business remains one of the largest in the world and has enormous funding on many levels.It is like several MNCs with the different Catholic, Protestant and Evangelical groups involved. There are full time staffs and organizations allocating money, creating media hype, plotting strategies and seeking new ways to promote conversion. The local native religion has about as much chance against such MNC incursions as a local food seller has if McDonald’s moves into the neighbourhood with a slick, well funded advertising campaign targeting his customers. Yet while many Third World countries have government policies to protect local businesses, they usually do not have any safety mechanism to protect local religions.”

Again, Dr David Frawley (Acharya Vamadeva Shastri) wrote: ”



 

In fact missionary activity is like an ideological war. It is quite systematic, motivated and directed. It can even represent a blitzkreig using media, money, people and public shows to appeal to the masses in an emotional way. Therefore, with missioanry activity we are not talking about unplanned, spontaneous or isolated events. We are talking about a religious effort towards world conquest that is quite happy to put an end to other religious traditions – that looks to establish one particular religion for all human beings, in which diversity of human religions is discredited and forgotten.”

Against the foregoing backdrop, please read the Article below from ‘ Businessweek’ .

 

Religion – sans spirituality – is reduced to ‘Best business practices‘!!

 


However, in the light of recent events in the West – if ‘American Best Business Practices’ is the model to be followed – there is then HOPE FOR INDIA – Kandhamal, Mangalore et al!!!
