Giving hope to persecuted Christians since 1995

Christians face a lot of pressure in India for reaching out to those who are considered the lowest of the low. One side effect is that conversion is a sensitive subject, and Christians are unjustly targeted and protested for professing their faith. The following article is a follow up after the local government had announced it would make conversions illegal.

( India News) – Three saffron outfits – Bajrang Dal, VHP and Hindu Jagaran Manch – which held violent protests against a Christian meet near Kota Raj, today announced suspension of their agitation in view of the organisers’ assurance that no religious conversion would take place during the function.
“We have decided to suspend our agitation against the meet after getting assurance from the Emmanuel Mission that there will be no (no) religious conversion or baptism during the five-day bible graduation function being attended by more than 3,000 people from various parts of the country,” Kota Mahanagar VHP chief Khuspal Singh said. The breakthrough was achieved after the mission authorities extended invitation to a delegation of the saffron outfits to attend the five-day function that began at Raipura, 10 km from here yesterday, and see for themselves that no conversion was taking place in the meet.
