CIA is not behind conversion in India!
August 25, 2006
I am sure Sudarshan ji is correct in saying that Christians wants to have one Christian church in every post office area. I can easily see this being planned by likes of Benny Hinn and other Christian Evangelists in US. One just have to visit http://www.christianaggression.com to find out all this information.
However, I strongly disagree with Sudarshan Ji’s assertion that CIA is behind all this. Until I see any proof, I will say that person saying this has no knowledge of CIA. Whoever fed this information to Sudarshan Ji doesn’t even have a remote clue about CIA. To the person in India who believe CIA is behind this, can you imagine Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), India’s external intelligence, equivalent of CIA, planning to have a Hindu temple in every county of United States or Sri Lanka or UK. No Right? This is just beyond imagination and ridiculous. Similarly, CIA doing such thing is beyond anybody’s imagination who knows even a little bit how CIA’s works and methodology.
Who works at CIA? Regular people like you and me who are not overly religious. CIA is not a big Christian fundamentalist organization and their sole purpose is not to spread Christianity. It is simply an intelligence wing of US Government working for the US interest and not for Christian Evangelists. This issue clearly seems like another case of extreme paranoia of US, that flows through the Sangh Parivar circle in India.
K S Sudarshan, leader of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh [RSS, paramilitary formation of fundamentalist nationalist Hindus, ed.], yesterday accused American Intelligence of seeking to convert India to Christianity with the help of non-governmental organizations.
The leader said: “The CIA [Central Intelligence Agency, ed.] wants to have one Christian church in every post office area. To attain this end, the American President Bush allocated 20 billion dollars.”
Sudarshan made these charges during celebrations marking 100 years since the setting up of the RSS that were held in Madurai.
The leader said: “So NGOs started to build schools, hospitals and public infrastructure only to veer the rural people away from their Hindu moorings.” He added: “Missionaries are also involved in this plan, because they mislead tribals when they say we invaded their land.”
Finally, Sudarshan hit out at Indian Maoists who “just as they did in Nepal, resort to terrorism and attack government offices to demoralize government officials and bring areas under their control.”
