    *  Number of persons going to church reduced to 5 from 60 after guidance
    * HJS appeals to citizens from other villages

Bhor (Dist. Pune, Maharashtra): There was increase in cases of conversion by Christian missionaries deceiving Hindu families. Mr. Vilas Gaikwad of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) and H. B. P. Jadhav Maharaj, the ‘Mathadhipati’ of Dattagad Mutt at Bhongivali created awareness among Hindus at Alande; therefore, many people stopped going to Katraj where missionaries had set up their base.

Christians deceive Hindus

Few Christian missionaries had made an appeal to people from various villages to meet at a hall in Katraj. It was advised to them to carry a bottle of oil and water claiming that after making prayers in the hall, the oil and water can be used to cure any kind of diseases. As a result, 60 persons from Alande itself were going to the hall. There were other people coming from nearby villages. A youth informed members of HJS that 57 Hindu families had converted to Christianity.

Ideal of Dharmaveer Sambhaji Maharaj is before Hindus ! – H. B. P. Jadhav Maharaj

HJS activists then created awareness among people of Alande village. H. B. P. Jadhav Maharaj and Mr. Gaikwad of HJS guided 70 youth so gathered on 17th October. H. B. P. Jadhav Maharaj said, “We have ideal of Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj before us who sacrificed his life for Dharma. How can we even think of adopting other religion? If it is happening due to ignorance in matters related to Dharma, it should be stopped. Many ailments like joint pain etc. can be cured with practice of ‘Yoga’. We can arrange a ‘Yoga’ camp for the villagers. We can impart knowledge related to Hindu Dharma to people.”

International conspiracy to convert Hindus ! – HJS

Mr. Gaikwad said, “Christians from USA and Europe are learning about the supremacy of Hindu Dharma and adopting Hindu Dharma. In many Christian countries, people have stopped going to church. Many Christians are affected by depression. It is very difficult to be born in Sanatan Hindu Dharma. Enticing Hindus with offering money, name, fame and health etc. with the intention of conversion is an attack on Hindu Dharma and an international conspiracy. Get ‘Dharmashikshan’ and be ready to foil this conspiracy.”

After listening to the guidance, the youth called Mr. Gaikwad at one place and requested him to guide 40 people once again who used to go to Katraj. After this guidance, number of persons going to Katraj reduced from 60 to 5. An appeal has been made to contact HJS if such type of conversions were going in other villages also.


   1. Father of Mr. Indrajit Bandal was sick. He was asked to attend the prayers but he flatly refused.
   2. The driver who was taking people to prayer hall admitted that he was taking people only for money.
   3. A small boy named Akshay Bandal was very active in the drive to stop conversions.

Comments by Hindus

Mr. Mahesh Gund : I was trying to dissuade my family for past so many days from going to prayers. It was very good that HJS undertook such drive.

One Hindu : People, who had gone for the program, were talking among themselves that going to church, getting cured etc. was all hypocrisy of Christians. Now we should meet the driver and see to it that he did not take people for prayers.
