Hindu nationalists warn Christian missionary schools they celebrate Christmas ‘at their own risk’

A Right-wing Hindu revivalist organisation has warned Christian missionary schools in northern India that they celebrate Christmas at “their own risk” as it claimed Hindu children were being “lured” to Christianity.

In a letter to several Christian-run schools in Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh, 110 miles southeast of the capital New Delhi, the Hindu Jagran Manch stated that Christmas is “essentially a ploy to lure and convert Hindu children”.

      And if you want to know why the UK is getting overrun by Muslims, just read the comments, especially the first one by the Stern clown.

    I have the honour of being friends with an Indian Christian pastor in that area. We met at a church in Canada many years ago, and we have wrote back and forth every since. The Hindu population is no better than Islam for its persecution of Christians. Maybe the vote whores in Canada should remember that, when they kiss ass for their votes. My friend’s churches and people go through terrible persecution by the Hindu population there. But what is great, is that the evangelical churches are growing in that country.

    I can understand the Hindus are angry.

    How about Canadians reciprocating in the same manner by banning their vaisakhi parade and all diwali celebrations in surrey & vancouver. Remedial steps are overdue.
    Bloody ungrateful people.

    Graham Staines an Australian Christian missionary working among lepers & destitute of India, which are often abandoned by their own people & govt., was burned alive along with his 2 sons by hindu radicals in 1999.
    Only 1 among the 50 or so people who attacked the Staines family was convicted to life in prison (which in india runs for roughly 14 years only). The supreme court of india noting in their judgement that the murder of Staines family was in reaction to their missionary work among poor; “the intention was to teach a lesson to Graham Staines about his religious activities, namely, converting poor tribals to Christianity,” the court said.
