Missionaries did not spare fisher folk


Srikakulam: Christian missionaries are exploiting the innocence and backwardness of fishermen of coastal areas of Srikakulam district by indulging in mass conversions.


Christian organizations have been deceiving people in the name of services. Massive number of conversions are going on in Ranasthalam, Eccherla, Sompeta, Kaviti, Vajrapu Kotturu, Gara mandals of the Srikakulam district.


Missionaries and Christian population in huge numbers from Orissa have been spreading their tentacles across Icchapuram mandal, Donkur, Sompeta, Erramukkam, Ranasthalam,Eccherla and indulging in forced conversions. The culprits have occupied forest lands, while flouting CRZ rules have started Churches and prayer houses across the villages of the Coastal region.

Lack of opportunities in this area forced many youth and male members of the families to migrate to distant places for work. This situation is viewed as a boon by missionaries. The women folk are lured by various fake promises and converted to Christianity. About 30 percent of the population in Sompeta, Kaviti, Icchapuram have so far converted to Christianity. Fisherman who worship Gangammatalli according to their age old tradition have abandoned the same upon conversion to Christianity. Social tensions are rising due to the foolish and fundamentalist behaviour developing among the converts.

    Converting pimps must be chased like rabid dogs till they stop preying on innocent Hindu villagers, they deserve no mercy as their main weapon is fraud, lies and dis-information. They don’t stand scrutiny of truth, and can never face a Hindu scholar in a debate. They are devils in human guise and would surely meet their suitable END. 5

    This report reminds me the the fooling of thousands of innocent tribals belonging to the Santha tribe in Orissa-Bengal border by yet another christian denomination called oasis India ministries donkeyed by one Manoranjan telecast in another venomous channel powervisiom(n).Replacing the words praising their Gods(mainly Hindu Gods)with the name of exhaling tone person, …su, and using their tarditional orchestra, several tribals are made to sing and dance to the tunes of these cunning people who move around distributing the black book among them. Several of the tribals were seen to be immersed in water as part of their so called viduthal.

    Until and unless we go into the lower strata and reinforce their beliefs and traditions, these rascals will easily eat into them wiping off our rich culture from the tribals also. The way the Hindu name bearing converter was exhorting shows that it is a lucrative business for him and he has found a fertile land for rich harvest of souls there. If we do not stem this rot, the catastrophe of the North-East India will soon percolate to the other areas of this Great Bharat. 5
