RSS for re-conversion if conversion continues

via Pioneer News Service | New Delhi published on February 15, 2011

With curtains finally drawn on RSS’ three-day mega conclave at Mandla in Madhya Pradesh, the mouthpiece of the outfit has hit out at those who have been opposing re-conversion of converted tribals. The editorial in the latest issue of Sangh’s mouthpiece, Organiser, said it must be made clear for once and all that as long as conversion takes place, anti-conversion and reconversion efforts will be made by Hindus.

“It is the duty of every Hindu to work towards protecting the religion, in order to safeguard the national unity and integrity. For, forces inimical to our country are working towards balkanising it,” it said.

Christian Missionaries had raised objection to RSS’ Narmada Mahakumbh in Mandla saying it was an effort to reconvert tribal, a claim that was vehemently refuted by the Sangh.

The mouthpiece wrote there was absolutely no reason for the Christian leaders to express fear over the Kumbh and went on to say their fear only goes to prove that Christian leaders have been indulging in coercive and aggressive conversions unchallenged and any faint sign of resistance was giving them jitters.

Organiser wrote, “If the Christians and Muslims have a right to carry on conversion, using means foul and unethical, the Hindus have double the right to bring the converts back to their original faith.”

Maintaining that rising religious conversions were tearing into the cultural and social matrix of the country, the Organiser wrote centuries old rituals, customs and practice that helped bind the communities were being forced to be abandoned.

“The indigenous knowledge and system are being demolished to pave way for imported, western models of life, thoroughly unsuited for Indian conditions,” the edit said, adding, “While it is a fact that decades of development has bypassed these communities living in the interior rural India, coerced religious conversion are not bringing them any closed to the advantages of development”.
