Radicals Demonize Christians in Chittoor district of Andhra Pradesh in South India

Global Council of Indian Christians

3/19/07 India (Persecution Update India ) – Last week in the university a student named Umamaheswari committed suicide. Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), a student wing of radical Hindus, allege Umamaheswari had been converted to Christianity sometime ago.

The ABVP has now added a proselytisation angle to the student’s suicide.

A fresh row over alleged evangelical activities on the campus of Sri Padmavathi Mahila University has erupted again giving a handle to the ABVP to take up cudgels against the State Government as well as the University’s Vice-Chancellor Veena Noble Das.

What triggered the controversy again was the suicide last week in the university hostel by a student Umamaheswari, who had allegedly been converted to Christianity sometime ago.

The suicide has touched off violent protests on the campus by the BJP and its various frontal organisations charging Veena Noble Das of complicity in the alleged evangelical activities on the campus during the last two years.

The Chittoor district unit of the ABVP has, in a statement here on Sunday, taken strong exception to the State Government turning a deaf year to all the so called `questionable activities’ on the campus despite its repeated complaints.

It is interesting to notice that all Hindu cult groups and new age Gurus outfits are having a field day in the campus advocating promiscuity of Osho and promotion of gender discriminating child marriage

Every conceivable opportunity is used by the radicals in Andhra Pradesh to demonize the Christian community to blunt the social empowerment mission of the church in India to bring back century old bondage and medieval mindset of exploitation
