    Recently, one Christian religious scholar (Not a priest) mentioned during the discussion(inter faith brain storming session) on the passing of new religious conversion bill in our state(He is welcoming it though) that - Any one who change his faith to Christianity b'coz of luring to monitory or other benefits; then it should be seen as a FEKU Christian believer/follower. He further went on to say that Christian believer/follower doesn't experience peace of mind then he can't be fit into the REAL definition of Christian (even though they born to Christian parents/family); By extrapolating this explanation it should be seen in the reported news the Complainant Dalit himself is a FEKU Christian (if at all he chose to change his faith b'coz of lurement) and the accused deserve to be punished.. if his action is proved beyond reasonable doubt by the police & the judiciary as per laws of the land.
