“Are we heading towards a Christian India?” – excerpts

Excerpts from a slightly dated but still relevant article by Francois Gautier: “Are we heading towards a Christian India?“.

“I am a westerner and a born Christian. I was mainly brought up in catholic schools, my uncle, Father Guy Gautier, a gem of a man, was the parish head of the beautiful Saint Jean de Montmartre church in Paris…There are certain concepts in Christianity I am proud of : charity for others, the equality of system in many western countries, ‘message of love and compassion’.

Yet, I am a little uneasy when I see how much Christianity is taking over India under the reign of Sonia Gandhi : according to a 2001 census, there are about 2.34 million Christians in India ; not even 2,5% of the nation, a negligible amount. Yet there are today five Christian chief ministers in Nagaland, Mizoram, Meghalaya, Kerala and Andhra Pradesh.

One should add that the majority of politicians in Sonia Gandhi’s closed circle are either Christians or Muslims…Ambika Soni…is General Secretary of the Congress and a very powerful person, with close access to Sonia Gandhi…Oscar Fernandes…Margaret Alwa…AK Anthony…Valson Thampu (a Hindu hater, is Chairman NCERT curriculum Review Committee)…John Dayal, another known Hindu baiter, has been named by Sonia Gandhi in the National Integration Council…and Kancha Ilaya…is being allowed by the Indian Government to lobby with the UN and US Congress so that caste discrimination in India is taken-up by these bodies.

…since she (Sonia Gandhi) is at the top, Christian conversions in India seem to have gone in overdrive.

More than 4,000 foreign Christian missionaries are involved in conversion activities across different states.

In Tripura, there were no Christians at independence, there are 120.000 today, a 90% increase since 1991.

The figures are even more striking in Arunachal Pradesh, where there were only 1710 Christians in 1961, but 1,2 million today, as well as 780 churches!

In Andhra Pradesh, churches are coming-up every day in far flung villages and there was even an attempt to set-up one near Tirupati.

…In Kerala, particularly in the poor coastal districts, you find “miracle boxes” put in local churches: the gullible villager writes out a paper mentionning his wish: a fising boat, a loan for a pukka house, fees for the son’s schooling. And lo, a few weeks later, the miracle happens ! …During the Tsunami, entire dalit villages in Tamil Nadu were converted to Christianity with the lure of money.

…The other day I was at the Madras Medical center, the foremost heart hospital in Madras. Right when you enter the lobby, you find a chapel, inviting everybody to pray, there are pictures and quotations of Christ everywhere and a priest visits all the patients, without being invited at all.

Educational institutes and orphanages run by Christian organisations have become big business…

schools…force their pupils, mostly Hindus, to say Christian prayers every day and attend mass. They are constantly fed anti Hindu slogans and biases under different forms, whether it is in history books, or discourses by priests during religious classes.

…In my country, France, a Christian majority nation , it would be unthinkable to have Hindus – or even Indian born French for that matter – in so many positions of power.

Impossible also to find a non-elected, non French, non-Christian person being the absolute ruler of the country behind the scene as Sonia Gandhi is in India.

Indians like to say that the greatness of India is that it accepts a foreigner and a Christian like Sonia Gandhi. But is’nt it rather a weakness, and an aberration ? Can’t we find a worthy leader amongst one billion Indians ?

This is an India where you see today Swami Avimukteshwarananda Saraswati of Dwarka Peeth, made to disembark from an Indian Airlines flight for carrying his holy dand, a thin bamboo stick which is a symbol of their spiritual designation, inside the aircraft cabin (See here).

Are we heading then towards a Christian India under Sonia Gandhi’s helm? It would be a tremendous loss not only to India, but also to the world….”

  1. #45, Yes, the media , films are being used as new tools for colonialism. I agree there is persecution of people from the other world by the first world. This is done very cleverly/

    I was in Japan for three years. Even though they do not have defence budget ( very minimal), their not being a colony has not made them a ready bully for the first world. In the western media they show some atrocities by Japanese in the earlier century, but it is nothing compared to what they show of the other world. This is because Japan did not have colonial masters. The power of technology and the hard work , they have put for it , is their own work ethics, whereas the erstwhile colonial states , try to copy the model of their colonial masters and the colonial masters take undue advantage by indulging in what you have written.

    The team work shown by Japanese in science and technology can be easily emulated by Indians as it is a Eastern concept. I was discussing with an Indian friend about Japanese science . He showed me a publication in a leading journal having 12 authors from Japanese University. This he says , you cannot expect in the individual character of the West.

    There are three layers in India. First is the media savvy,
    English speaking elite , who are like quasi ( almost) colonialists. The second layer looks to this first layer and third layer , the third layer being the poor and supressed. The second layer reacts, but does not act well. The second layer is a densely populated layer , less dense than the third layer. If the second layer can get their acts for positive action towards the third layer and debate successfully with the first layer, thru media, there will be a dramatic change.

  2. adding further to 51, Japan does not have the first layer, which gives them a great advantage over the erstwhile colonial states.
