‘From all over the world, Rs. 1 lakh crore are spent every year on conversions in Bharat.’ – Mr. KB Surendran, Bharatiya Vichar Kendra

1.1 Foreign aid received for conversions to Christianity

A. ‘Based on the report of the Union Home Ministry for the year 2008, a sum of about 210 million dollars is received as foreign aid for Christian priests, preachers and other religious acts.’ – Mr. PC Dogra (Retd. Bharatiya Police officer)
B. ‘According to a report published by the Union Home Ministry in March 2009, some Christian social organisations received millions of dollars as foreign aid for propagation of Christianity in Bharat.’

B. Mediums of transfer of money from Arab countries for conversions in Bharat : Money reaches Bharat from Saudi Arabia through ‘Western Union Money Transfer’ through hawala transactions (Illegal money transfer). Some jewellery businessmen in Bharat have their branches in the Gulf countries. Money is transferred through them as well. Since Muslim pilgrims returning from Haj are not subjected to a strict security check at Bharatiya airports, money is also brought in through them.’

2. National

2.1 Eight lakh Hindus get converted every year

Approximately 3.5 lakh Hindus get converted to Islam and 4.5 lakh to Christianity every year; thus, approximately 8 lakh Hindus get converted every year. If the population of 1947 is compared with that today, it will be observed that the Christian population has grown 5 times and that of Muslims 8 times. Approximately 1.20 lakh Muslims and 3 lakh Christian preachers are striving hard to convert Hindus in our country. – Daily ‘Tarun Bharat’ (20.11.1999)

2.2 Nationwide preparedness of Christians for converting Hindus

A. A Christian religious front that is tirelessly working for the mission of conversions in Bharat : ‘As per the ‘Catholic directory’ of 1998 there are 1,19,250 missionaries, 15,101 Christian educational institutions and 47 lakh students who are getting educated in these institutions. Such is the pace of conversions carried out by the missionaries in Bharat.’
B. ‘Christians have targeted 75,000 Pin Codes in Bharat.’ – Father Johnson, USA
C. Various churches and organisations active in Bharat to convert Hindus
1. Seventh-day Adventist Church : ‘Seventh Day Adventists owes its success in Bharat to Canadian evangelist Ron Watts, who arrived in Bharat in 1997. At that time, the Adventist Church had 2,25,000 members after 103 years of operation. In five years, he took the membership to 7 lakh. This Church forms a group of 10-15 villages, and under the guidance of a pastor, conducts the task of conversions systematically. The local volunteers then carry forward this task. In 1998, 9,337 Hindus from 10 groups of 10 villages each got converted. In 1999, the number shot up to 40,000 Hindus from 40 groups.

2.3 Muslim policy that has been active since 1983 to convert Hindus to Islam

1. ‘Enticing illiterate, ignorant and poor Hindus, especially the backward classes to convert to Islam
2. Marrying Hindu women and increasing the number of Muslims through procreation

– Monthly ‘Samanvay’ (March-April 1986)
This conspiracy being experienced by Hindus is being carried out even today in a systematic manner.

A. The ‘Joshua Project’ is concentrating completely on Hindi speaking States in North Bharat – Father Johnson, USA
B. In Punjab, the Christian population has risen to 1% due to conversions : ‘Presently, Christian preachers are preaching in a very aggressive way in Punjab.

C. Nagaland had only 200 Christians in the pre-Independence era; it has today become the largest Christian State due to conversions : In 1947, the population of Christians in Nagaland was a mere 200.

With the help of the earlier Congress Chief Minister, 10,000 people were converted every month in Andhra Pradesh : ‘The Adventist Church had made groups of 10 and 25 villages in Andhra Pradesh, 50 groups in all, for step by step conversions with the help of the earlier Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, Y Samuel Rajashekhar Reddy. There, every month a minimum of 10,000 people are converted. Now a target of 5,000 Hindus a day has been set. Gradually, the number of churches in Andhra Pradesh are growing. Attempts are being made to construct a church close to the Tirupati temple.’ – Father Johnson, USA
J. Hindu Dharma on its way to getting wiped out in Kerala : ‘Hindu population in Kerala which was 68.36% in 1901 reduced to 56.20% in 2001 – a fall of 12.16%.

L. Conversions in the Andaman and Nicobar islands : ‘In the Union Territory of Andaman-Nicobar islands, the Christian missionaries are taking undue advantage of the poverty, ignorance and helplessness of the people in remote areas. Thousands of tribals there have been converted. On both the islands, a group of 8 to 10 nuns wearing white or blue attire are seen moving around. Today, the Nicobar island has converted completely to Christianity. Along with the Nicobari community, other communities too have become Christians.’ – Mr. Bhaskar Nagare, Navi Mumbai

Informative lectures on Jesus are organised in Nepali language through Rai.’

4.3 The Muslim Government and Christian missionaries in Malaysia plot to convert 7% Hindus in the country
