Hindu Population Decreased in India with Conversions by Christians – T V Mohandas Pai
Udupi: “By converting the Hindu’s to Christianity today the Christian population has increased to 8 crores in India. During Independence, the population of Hindus was 85 percent in India and today it is down to 77 percent”, said T V Mohandas Pai Director of Manipal Global Education Bengaluru.
He was speaking after inaugurating the Dharma Sansad office at the Royal Garden Udupi here on Tuesday, November 21.
T V Mohandas Pai further said, “Hindus were lured with money and forcefully converted to Christianity through coercion. For converting Hindus, Christians were getting funds in crores from America and other Christian countries. There is no doubt that large-scale conversions have been taking place across India, accelerating over the last many years led by evangelical groups from the West. Most conversions happen amongst the tribal’s and rural and urban poor, who are soft targets for inducements. If any Hindu leader raises his voice against the conversion he will be targeted. Hindus should consolidate themselves as a singular vote bank if they are to secure equal opportunity, enjoy equal rights and attain equal justice”.
Sri Vishwa Prasanna Theertha Swamiji of Pejawar Math graced the occasion.
VHU national secretary Rajendra Pankaj, Regional secretary Gopal, VHP leaders M B Puranik, Vilas Nayak, TMP Shenoy and others were present.
