India Hindu Militants To "Behead" Evangelists

By Stefan J. Bos, Chief International Correspondent

IndiaNEW DELHI, INDIA (Worthy News)-- The leader of a hardline Hindu group wants India's constitution to legalize the killing of Christian evangelists and, for instance, promoters of other non-Hindu religions.

Praveen Togadia, the general secretary of the influential Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), or 'World Hindu Council', told supporters in the western Indian state of Gujarat this week that the constitution should be changed and "allow anyone who converts Hindus to be beheaded”.

His remarks, obtained by Worthy News Friday, November 11, came as American evangelist Franklin Graham began a series of massive evangelistic rallies in the south Indian city of Hyderabad.

On the second night of Graham's 'Hyderabad Festival' on Friday, November 11, some 50,000 people poured into Lal Bahadur Stadium in the capital city of Andhra Pradesh state, witnesses said, despite protests from VHP supporters.

NEW BELIEVERS

During the rallies in Hyderabad, which continue this weekend amid tight security, so far at least hundreds of people made clear they want to follow Jesus Christ, organizers said.

Hindu nationalist claim "Christian missionaries" seek to convert Hindus by offering money and other benefits and have urged the state to ban the event.

Previously, well-known activist Swami Agnivesh of the Hindu group Arya Samaj, or "Arya Society", reportedly urged Pope Benedict XVI to establish a moratorium on the conversion of “unlettered tribals” and others.

His letter was a response to the pontiff's Diwali message, which urged Christians and Hindus to work together for religious freedom, including “the freedom to change one’s own religion”.

MORE CONTROVERSY

In July, an article by Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy sparked controversy for its comments about Muslims, recommending a “national law prohibiting conversion from Hinduism to
any other religion”.

Rights activists have expressed concerns about the situation and urged India's government to protect minorities, including Christians, in this heavily Hindu nation.

“India’s pluralist pedigree is once again under concerted fire," said Andrew Johnston, the advocacy director of religious rights group Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW).

"Inflammatory remarks such as Togadia’s can be a spur for prejudice and violence against Muslims and Christians...For example, communal attacks against Christians in India are often linked to unsubstantiated accusations about conversions," he told Worthy News.

EFFECTIVE LAW?

His group has "encouraged" the government to continue with plans to "pass an effective law to prevent, control and deal with the aftermath of communal violence" and "make this as effective as possible.”

Johnston said the United Nations Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion reiterated that "international jurisprudence" includes "the freedom to change religion, and the right to manifest a religion includes the right to share religious beliefs with others."

Christians comprise roughly two percent of India's over one billion population, but Hindu nationalists have expressed concerns about the spread of Christianity among 'Dalits', the 'lowest' caste in India's ancient system of Hinduism, and in other areas.

  1. Praying~!

    God Bless India

    Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. Matthew 24:9

    May She See Her Creator And Bless His Holy Name

  2. so far in the USA we do not have to face this kind of persecution, but it won't be too long till it hits america.  Christians world-wide must stand strong for the faith in Jesus Christ.  We must endure to the end no matter what the cost might be.  We pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world. Stand strong!

  3. Govt should ban conversion of Hindus by force,allurement,money and materials.The ban is in fact invoked in many states.But Christians are abusing the law by working stealthily unscruplously and hiding the facts from Govt.The names are not changed by the christian church missionaries.The Tribals and dalits are being converted as main line hindus upper hindus donot want to be converted.In many cases the christian girls allures hindu boys to marry them and later convert them 2 christianity.In Indian states they are emboldened after sonia gandhi came to power in 2004.The conversion has picked up largely after 2004 and also many siants of hindus who are engaged in re conversion of converted hindus in tribal belt are killed.In Kandhmala swamy and his chelas are kiiled by christian missionaries as he was a  threat to them in their agenda of conversion of hindus in orissa.Now hindus are awakened and if the missionaries peristss in their attempt to conversion people anger would drown them and force them to le from india.

    • Truth To Tell

      Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6

      If You Love The Hindu And The Muslim

      That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
      He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
      And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John 1:9-14

      You Will Tell Them The Truth

      The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.

      He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. John 3:35-36

      Believe And Be Blessed Beloved

      Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. John 3:7

      In Jesus' Holy Name I Pray

      Amen~!

      Love, Joe

    • May You See Jesus

      And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,
      Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved. Acts 2:46-47

      And Believe

      For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

      And Be Blessed Beloved

      In Jesus" Holy Name

      Amen

      Love, Joe

    • "Our is a HINDU RASHTRA ie HINDU NATION" ... it ain't no HINDU Nation!!! before commenting on any such issue go study the constitution first and then comment!! According to the Constitution of India, India is a SECULAR country...I assume you don't know the meaning of secularism! Secularism= Freedom/right to follow any religion. According to the Constitution of India, everyone has the FREEDOM of SPEECH!! I assume you do not know the meaning of that either, hence your comment explains that!! Freedom of Speech= You have NO RIGHT WHATSOEVER to DICTATE ANYONE WHAT TO SAY AND NOT SAY.......Everyone has the right to PREACH and PROFESS their own religion.....if you don't want to hear that move away from that place/gathering....and your challenge has been taken up by many many many many Christians across the world even in MUSLIM COUNTRIES.......trust me many Christians have stood up for their faith......it just shows your limited knowledge and your brains and thoughts revolving around "Our is a HINDU RASHTRA ie HINDU NATION."

      Dear Pravin Togodia ji                    

       

      My regards and God’s love to you in the most
      loving name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Loving our enemies, helping them when they are
      in need and praying for their welfare is the definition of God’s Love according
      to the Holy Bible.

       

      Sir, Heaven and Hell is a fact not a fiction
      and only through Christ Jesus one can  attain
      salvation / mukhti / reach heaven the
      Holy Bible proclaims that is the only reason I am writing this mail to
      you.

       

      I read your statements
      on news papers, magazines and internet for a long period and in no term can
      believe a person like you, spent a good amount of money for studying (if you
      are really a medical doctor) to save the life of the sick and needy, trained to
      give life to the sick people, advocates for contradictory that is “beheading anyone who
      converts the gentiles, who risks their life to save the gentiles from the
      tormenting fire of hell”.

       

      If you are really a
      surgeon you know at least a little history. Jesus Christ was not at all an angrez (English man). He was born
      and brought up in a Jewish family in Israel . And I believe if you ever granted your Creator God’s grace and
      mercy to know who this JESUS CHRIST is then you will never talks the way you
      talks now. 

       

      Sir, my Hindu brothers believe
      what their many religious books teach for their well beings and SALVATION /
      MUKHTI, Moslem brothers believe what their Koran
      teaches and the same way Christians and other religion’s people believe
      what their religious books teaches.

       

      It is written in the Bible that we all are sinners and with all our good deeds none of us can
      attain salvation.  Therefore The
      Almighty God who is the Creator of all
      of us Himself manifested in flesh in the name of Jesus Christ and became a
      perfect sacrifice before the Triune
      God for the whole world. He died on the Calvary Cross for all the sinners of
      the world.

       

      Not me or the Christians
      but the Holy BIBLE says our Creator God ordained ONLY ONE WAY THAT IS JESUS CHRIST FOR
      OUR SALVATION / MUKHTI AND THERE IS NOT AT ALL ANY OTHER WAY FOR YOU AND ME TO
      ATTAIN MUKHTI.   

       

      This very truth of our Almighty God differ the
      HOLY BIBLE from other Religious books.

       

      If Jesus Christ is the
      ONLY ORDAINED WAY OF OUR SALVATION BY OUR CREATOR then you too have to accept
      that we the human beings NEITHER CAN STOP THIS PREACHING
      NOR THIS CONVERSION because we cannot fight and win the invincible God.   

       

      I preach this eternal
      truth of God in God’s love to every one where ever our Creator provides me an
      opportunity because this is an indisputable truth of God. 

       

      Bhai Sahib ji you too will accept that it is honorable for the
      spiritual preachers (who ever may be) to prove what he believes and proclaims
      to the multitudes.  Other wise none of us can believe what the preacher
      preaches also the atmosphere becomes unrest because of the many faith in this
      world. 

       

      By raising Jesus Christ from the dead on the 3rd
      day Our Creator Almighty God already confirmed His ordained way of Mukhti to
      the whole world some 2000 years ago and since then continuously confirming by His MIGHTY WORKS,
      SIGNS AND WONDERS  wherever His chosen
      disciples proclaims His ordained way of salvation.

       

      So being me a witness
      for Jesus Christ’s resurrection and a preacher of “our Creator’s only ordained
      way of MUKHTI” it is my duty to pray earnestly and get the answer from God and
      confirm the above said truth of God to you all.

       

      As a law abiding Indian
      citizen I request you with all my God given humility to gather every unfortunate sick and disabled people of
      your Gujarat, who really wish to get healed, wherever you like and
      arrange a crude platform and other arrangements for me to proclaim our Creator
      God’s only ordained way of salvation
      that is JESUS CHRIST.

       

      When I proclaim His
      truth that is Jesus Christ crucified for the remission of our sins, to make us
      the heir of the blessed heaven, our Creator Almighty God Himself will confirm
      His truth by healing these sick people instantly. Please gather at least 5000
      gentle people also there to witness this event.

       

      Pravin Togodia ji the Bible says one should always remember we are dust and “it is hard for any one to kick against the goads”.

       

      Because I love you, being
      I am elder I advise you, please do not talk / walk / act against the Jews and the
      followers of Jesus Christ. (It is up to you to accept or reject my advice) Your
      Creator doesn’t like it. Saddam Hussein, Usama Bin Laden, Col. Gaddafi the self
      boasted king of kings are some recent examples before our naked eyes, they all
      wanted to destroy Israel and Christians and we all know how the Almighty God cursed
      and destroyed them, they all died ungracefully and suffering in hell. 

       

      I believe you like a NAR
      AADMI will surely accept my request and will come forward in a friendly atmosphere
      to know the above proclamation of the Holy Bible is really true or not. 

       

      In God’s love

      disciple of Jesus Christ

  4. It is fact that Christians have succeeded to convert mostly hindu tribals and dalits in tribal belts by offerring them education health and money.But they can never convert any muslim in any part of world and alos in idnia.If they drae to do that they are being killed in muslim countries.In pakistan many evengelists were killed.Now kashmir muslim clergies has warned them not to convert any muslim.But hindus are impotents slaves and bootlickers oif foreigner lady who allowed them to convert hindus into christain catholics.shaemon hindus of india who tolerates them.Now all saints sadhus and sadhvis should spraed all over india and warn them not to convert andy hindus,as it would make them vulnerable to attacks.

    Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
    For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
    For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. Matthew 16:24-27

  6. The claims are not true.This is NOT reported in the Indian Media which is usurped by the Western Christians and Globalists.This is like blaming the USA for KKK.Christians are indeed creating problems,along with the Globalists to make Hindus look anti-Minority and ani-Dalit,to use it in future for "R2P",misusing many False Flags,in which the CIA is strongly suspected to be involved.This trick is being used by the West everywhere....In fact the Vatican and the Churches of India support Christian terrorism in the North East and of the Maoists.
    Please google for:-Conversion to Christianity in india's North East.

    • Christians should obey their Lord Jesus who told them to make disciples from all nations. Note, not converts but disciples, ones who learn and follow after. This is not about religion but about truth and the new life in Jesus.
