Christian Today India (01/04/06) – The chief of the Hindu right-wing organization, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), has urged loyalists to come to the rescue of Hindu nationalism and curb the growth of Christianity in India , Christian Today has confirmed.

In a letter addressed to the outfit’s thousands of volunteers and political activists, inviting them to participate in a series of meetings in various cities in early 2006 to celebrate the centenary of the birth of Hindu nationalist leader Madhavrao Sadashivrao Golwalkar, the RSS supremo, K.S. Sudarshan lamented that political elites are blind to the problems of Hindu demographic decline and social harmony.

“Political parties are now competing among themselves to make populist announcements and for immediate political gains but they don’t have time to ponder over their long-term implications. Infiltration from Bangladesh to Assam , Bengal and Bihar is unabated but no government is ready to throw them [illegal immigrants] out,’’ Italy-based Catholic news agency, AsiaNews quoted him as saying.

The RSS chief flayed both the Muslim and the Christian communities, accusing the former of “growing” in number while the Hindus were “declining.”

Charging the Christians with forcibly and fraudulently converting innocent Hindus, he asked, “Crores [tens of millions] of rupees are being pumped into the country for conversion to Christianity. [And] there are demands to introduce reservation for converts from scheduled castes and tribes to Islam and Christianity. If such reservation is extended, conversions will go up manifold endangering the unity and integrity of the country. Should we remain silent spectators because conversions are done with political motives?”

According to Sudarshan, the RSS volunteers can make a difference by putting “their heart into awakening society” and foil the “conspiracies of devilish forces” by devoting at least one week to make Hindu conversions successful, getting in touch with ten new people per year, and spending at least 15 days promoting the Hindu cause.
