Dear All: I’m opening a new thread on “Why are Christian Missionaries Targeting India” – Part V (Part IV is overloaded with 100+ comments).
Pl. discuss all aspects related to conversions, missionary activity, distortions and mis-interpretations of scriptures and sacred stories by Christian media on this thread.
To kick off the discussion, here is an observation that I posted on twitter just now:
Here’s how you include Jesus & avoid ShriRam in a news-story on Diwali.
I wonder if this inspired the image & shloka (note the words “Sanskrit” instead of “Vedic”?
Is this another example of the secular assault on ancient traditions of this land – or am I over-reacting? By the way, I did not go looking for this…I stumbled on the article completely by chance, while browsing through Google news earlier this morning:
Parts of the short news-story (mentioned above) are also open to mis-interpretation, I think..specifically:
Thousands of years back, Kings and Kingdoms tried to conceal this Light from the world….
Today, again this message of truth is being subdued and confined. The modern world and its substances have replaced this Light with manmade traditions and false doctrines
I am also including a somewhat related comment by VOP on the last thread to maintain continuity in the discussion:
