Mangaluru: Alleged abetment to religious conversion - Man warned, sent away


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Oct 16: A person was found distributing the Holy Bible and other books in Old Kent Road area, Pandeshwar in the city on Friday October 15 to the general public. Allegation of abetment for religious conversion was made by some people.

When the locals questioned the person about the books distribution, it is said that he gave vague answers. Therefore, they conveyed information to the police. Staff in charge of Hoysala 112 facility went there, and took the man to the police station where he was questioned.

The man gave his address as Thiruvananthapuram and gave his name as K Rajayyan. He explained that he has been suffering from mental disorders and that he was told by someone that his problems will go away if he distributes the Bible and other books free of cost. He said because of this, he was distributing books in Malayalam to the people free of cost.

Police sources said that the man was warned and sent away to Kerala.

    All cooked up stories by the sanghis to defame Christian, he was planted by the very same people who complained to police, the very fact police let him go only with a warning and no inquiry . If there was inquiry truth would have come out.

    Which Hinduism book are you talking about ?. The mahabarath and Ramayana are Ithias, which means history and is an indian's cultural book. Whereas, the other books are foreign and culturally not related to us and that is where conversion comes about. I hope you understand

    Distributing bible, Quran or Bhagavad-Gita is not a crime. It is a sacred act. It is up to the people to accept it or reject it. It cannot be construed as forced conversion. We are free to follow or propagate our views, be it political, religious, educational or otherwise. Police did a mistake in taking him to Police Station and warning him because he has not committed any crime. In this country even eating your favourite food is a crime !!

    Police should enquire who chose this person???… Who gave him those books????…..How much money did he get to do this????…This is same as those anti social rogue right wing elements giving alcohol to a person and ask him to vandalize the church. It’s fabricated and preplanned case to spread conversion allegations and bring bad name to Christian missionaries. Even cow thefts have been promoted and supported by these right wing elements.

    It is sad that 80% Hindus are si scared of <2% Christians!? That's the strength of theur faith? They get automatically get converted the moment they take Holy book if anither faith? Those who accuse Catholic Church must go to church and ask any Catholic Priest to make him Catholic and see what happens? Stop drumming third rate accusations against Church. As Catholic I am ready to give my life for my Jesus and the Church but will not take life as the others do.

    Article 25 of the Constitution.////There is a huge difference in salesmen distributing advertisements, about products, printed on paper that can be thrown into the dustbin or burnt by those who are not interested. Such advts appear all around us even in newspapers! Even Arnab Goswami does not force me to hear his screaming sessions, I have a choice.////How is it that FORCED proselytisation and brainwashing is allowed from buildings called masjids using powerful 110dB(in blatant challenge of the law) loudspeakers at full volume in all directions meant to FORCE everybody 2 kms away to hear their advertisements and programmes that their God is the only true God , and therefore all other Gods are false, and their God is the greatest God and their founder is the only messenger and he is the greatest, wisest and all knowing and all other prophets are subordinate to him? How is it that the jihadists can practice loudspeaker CAA/NRC and yet get away with murder of the constitutional rights of the people in the neighbourhood who have no desire to hear their beliefs but yet are forced and tortured into hearing their beliefs? How is it that the police do not stop that? How is it that the jihadists are allowed to scream their advertisements 365 days on loudspeakers for 2 to 15 minutes at 4.45,5.00,5.30,6.00AM;2.45,1.00,3.45,5.00,6.30,6.45,7.45,8.30PM;every Friday between 12.45 -2.00PM and on 10-12 days a year for 3-4 hrs during programmes? Am I living in India or Saudia? Why the hypocrisy in application of the rule of law? Where is the secularism? I shudder to think of the day when the dream of the founder of the jihadists's - of turning Hindostan into the Islamic Emirates of India - comes true! They are nearly succeeding in Europe!

    he is tall and well built (no fat, not bulgy, hard bones), must be in late thirties or early forties... see how straight he stands and how healthy he is... look at the way he has held fingers twisted and bent inwards... (usually identified with people with violent mentality)... he is staying somewhere locally... his mask, shirt, lungi and bag are all spotless clean... forget religion, conversion... he might be a criminal in disguise... likely that he is trained in martial arts... do not try to confront him without weapon... by sherlock holmes....

Otherwise, why is he allowed so easily to go to your favorite place without much interrogation??? Why ? Other communities read such books? By distributing anyone will get converted? Some groups in Christian communities do such things which is condemnable. Because, books are misused, thrown to the dustnin and made fun of....and what not. They are insulting their own religion by distributing like this. Legal authorities should take proper care of such people and punish...

    Following what your left liberals are doing in the west. ... Deadly boosters to people by liberals (another name for communist) government there ? Following Divine message to John Leary says so.....(Message mainly to american but also for rest of the faithful and believers) ... Monday, October 11, 2021: (St. John XXIII)... Jesus said: “My people, you are dealing with an evil government which will use viruses and vaccines to control your people. You will first see more persecution of the unvaccinated people. Then these evil ones will try to force Covid boosters shots, that are more deadly, on the vaccinated people. More people will get sick and they will use this to cause another shutdown. This is when you will have your churches closed again. For a while you will only be able to have Holy Communion from priests doing private Masses. You may not have Mass on the internet for very long. Before they release the next deadly virus, I will bring My Warning and conversion time. After this, I will call My faithful to My refuges, where My angels will bring you daily Holy Communion, or you will have a priest for daily Mass and Holy Communion. Trust in Me because I will find a way for you to be with Me, despite any future shutdowns.” Ref: http://www.johnleary.com/index.php/?cat=3&order=DESC
