(Compass) – India ’s extremist organization, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), has announced plans to establish a number of Raksha Sena or “Defense Army” groups in Chhatisgarh, central India . In a two-day training session held for recruits in mid May, Dilip Singh Judeo, former Minister of Forestry and Agriculture, encouraged the recruits to “move into the interior parts of the country to check religious conversions.” Christian leaders are concerned about the development. “We have enough evidence that they are targeting Christians,” says John Dayal, general secretary of the All India Christian Council (AICC). AICC sources claim up to 20,000 Christian members of tribal groups have been forcibly “reconverted” in a campaign initiated by Judeo over the past five years. “Local RSS leaders, including Judeo, have gone on record saying their main target is Christian missionaries,” John Dayal told Compass.
