Christian Taliban’s and Inter Religious Dialogue

via Poor Christian Liberation Movement (PCLM) - Press Release published on March 16, 2009

New Delhi:

Of late the Church in India is stressing on inter religious dialogue. While this step by the Church in India looks innocence but it is full of dangerous pitfalls and is a ploy to divert the attention of other religious communities from the actual issues of conversion.
The Catholic Church
is organizing a meeting on inter religious dialogue at Mumbai to
discuss how to proceed in this matter. The moot question is who are the
people behind this move? Little probe would reveal that fanatic Christian Taliban type leaders like Dr. John
Dayal , Dr. Joseph D’Souza, Mr. Sajan George, Rev. Fr. Dominic
Emmanuel, Rev.K.P.Yohannan and others have been spreading lot of false
information about Hindus that they are “violent people” and that there
is no “ salvation outside the Christianity”.

If there is no Moksha
or “salvation” for the followers of other religions and only
Christianity is the way of salvation through the organized church then
the question arises why the inter religious dialogue ?

“Inter religious dialogue must be with open mind and without hidden agenda”
pleads Mr. P B. Lomeo, a ‘Christian journalist’ of long standing and
member National Governing Board of PCLM. This view is also supported by
R.L. Francis, President of Poor Christian Liberation Movement (PCLM).

Human rights activists and writer Joseph Gathia
when contacted to respond on the inter religious dialogue stated that
in an era of globalization and identity conflict peaceful coexistence of all religion is the only way out. Mr. Gathia further mentioned that “Indian culture
is assimilating and people of all faiths are living here hence any
effort of inter religious dialogue must be free from ulterior motives”

For inter religious
dialogue one needs to practice living with the Hindu , Muslim and Sikh
brethren and stop poaching the “souls” from these religion. But the
fact remains that Christian Taliban type leaders in India are engaged
in converting Hindus, Sikhs (in Punjab and Chattisgarh) and Muslims (in Kashmir ) and Buddhist (in Leh –Laddakh).


For real inter religious
dialogue “hidden agenda activities “would have to be stopped. Next, to
create atmosphere of respect for all religion the Christian educational
institutions ought to give admission to Muslims children, children of
non -Christian tribals and Hindus . Are they ready for it?


Can Christian Taliban’s really enter into a inter-religious dialogue?
