BJP MLA says Christian missionaries got his mother converted, demands action


Bengaluru, Sep 21 (IANS): Former Minister and BJP MLA Goolihatti Shekar has demanded action against Christian missionaries operating in the Hosadurga Assembly constituency for allegedly carrying out rampant religious conversions. He further said Christian missionaries have even got his mother converted to Christianity.

Speaking on the floor of the state Legislative Assembly on Tuesday, he said, "Christian missionaries are indulging in rampant religious conversions in Hosadurga constituency. They have got as many as 18 to 20,000 people converted to Christianity from the Hindu religion. The Christian missionaries have converted my mother and she has been told not to wear 'kumkum' (Vermillion) on forehead.

"The ring tone of my mother's cell phone has also been changed to Christian prayers. We are finding it difficult to perform 'puja' (worship) at home. It has been very difficult for us. If we try to tell her anything she says that she will end her life," Goolihatti Shekar said.

He further explained that the Christian Missionaries operating in the region called his mother for prayers telling that she would feel better and got her trapped. Now, she does not like the photos of Hindu gods at home and even things kept in the worship room for 'puja', he said.

The Christian missionaries are even managing to lodge false atrocity cases and rape cases on those who questioned them through those converted from Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribes. The government should take action in this regard, he urged.

Taking objection to the use of the word 'Church' while talking about conversions, senior Congress leader K.J. George said it is not fair to generalise and accuse all churches for the mistake of few. Speaker Vishveshwara Hegde Kageri supported K.J. George and asked Goolihatti Shekar not to generalise the allegations.

Responding to the charges, the Home Minister Araga Jnanendra explained that luring people for religious conversions is a punishable offence. The religious conversions are happening through a well established network in the state and across the country. The state government will initiate legal action regarding the issue, he added.

The state government will also study the law enactments regarding religious conversions of other states to deal with the menace effectively, he stated.

    With what did the christians lure the minister's mother into conversion ? Pan masala ? snuff and arecanut powder ? Or they 'forced' her with a toy gun ? This conversion story tells the truth about conversions. People are mature enough to accept a religion of their choice. Some news papers are probably frustrated they cannot use the word 'forced conversion' as usual because it is a minister's mother. Who can force her into conversion ?

There is a saying when the poor people show thier arrogance and stupidity towards human kind with pride that is the worst for that nation s of bad to happen. Look at many good nations turns into unrest and clashes everything has started with a mind set of religious differences. India is our motherland and pray for peace and love towards everyone. Also pray for the elected leader who are in power to talk good governance than religion and hatred.

Use your common sense in passing stupid judgement and first read the history of post independent India to know who built the Indian Armed Forces, who fought the wars, who built airports, seaports, ship building yards, defense establishments, IITs, IIMs, AIMS, Universities, ISRO, IISCs., BARC, BHEL, BEL, HAL, railways, dams, bridges, highways, Green revolution, white revolution in agriculture and many more.

    It is a sad fact that some people are converting people from other religion just to prove their religion is better. Why they can't practice their own and be to themselves instead of creating a ripples in the harmonious society?

But they have enough and more to talk about religious conversions and all that nonsense which does not contribute anything in improving the quality of lives of people. This is the only diversion tactics they have from the real issues just to fool the public. Given the situation this country will remain a developing even after next few centuries. Worst is christian faith has become a easy and soft target to attack to all these frog mentality politicians and their bhakts. The world must be laughing and they are happy that we remain this way busy fighting on religion and caste.

    Typical Bogie being raised about conversions. If a Ex Minister and present MLA finds his mother changing her beliefs then he has to respect his mothers sentiments instead of generalising the issue to target the Minority community. If in a Country like Iran, so many are embracing Christianity then there is need to ponder on why so many people are embracing Christianity.

    Every religion belives there is one creator for not just for earth n all creations but also for entire universe. And there are atheist who believe in nothing. Interestingly competition is between religions is to prove themselves to be superior to others, not with atheists. That's a big irony of all time. Any true beliver of his or her own faith, won't try to indulge in conversion. At the same time, definately won't stop any one changing their faith, on their own wish, without any humanly greed. As that could be written in their destiny. The minute one starts my faith is superior, it shows the inferiority of the person. They are sick and insecure.

Hindu Man: "My son just converted to Christianity." "I'm not sure," the Pujari replied. "Let me ask God. Come back tomorrow." The man goes back the next day. "Sorry," the Pujari said. "God told me He has the same problem." The reality is either Hindu, Christian, or Islam etc.. etc.. all human made. God never ever asked anyone to create a religion. God is asking to live as per his law obey him and do only good. To my knowledge even Ravana being a evil person did not raped Sita Devi. But our BJP MLA+MP are ready to do what ever they want.

God the Father September 16, 2021 Once again, I (Maureen) see a Great Flame that I have come to know as the Heart of God the Father. He says: “Children, every soul ever born into the world goes through his life, passion and death. The choices he makes and his relationship with Me – his Creator – determines his eternal destination. I do not make this choice for the soul. The soul chooses himself. As he stands before My Son* in judgment, he knows where he will be going.” ........ “Live according to the path of Holy Love. Respect and abide by My Commandments.** In charity, pray for one another before the soul is born into the world and during his life on earth and even after his death. Be generous with your prayers. In so doing, I will be generous with the graces I send to you.” ...... “Most people live as though I do not exist. This is why you have wars, disease and hunger amongst you. Through these Messages* and this Shrine,** I am trying to capture the attention of the human race. Assist Me in My efforts by evangelizing these Messages.” ........ Read 1 John 3:19 * The Messages of Holy and Divine Love at Maranatha Spring and Shrine. Ref: https://www.holylove.org/messages/

    Before Judgement because of God's infinite Mercy for those who do not Him, as it is not their mistake, a MINI judgement to all to choose between Good and evil. Soon A Warning, Two Asteroids collision in the sky, and a MINI judgement (life review). All people will have a REAL taste of their future destination heaven or hell in a recent message to John Leary dated Tuesday, September 7, 2021: ....... Jesus said: “My son, you have been out evangelizing people so they could be converted for over 25 years. Now the time to bring people to Me is growing short before the coming Warning and the tribulation of the Antichrist. Your mission has been to help save as many souls as you can, and the time to save people from hell is running out. The devil and the media are controlling the minds of many people, but My power is greater. So call on Me and the Holy Spirit to help you every day to have people understand that they are both body and soul, and made to My image with a free will to choose between heaven or hell. My Warning will wake up every person to realize how I will judge each life with your life review and your mini-judgment when people will have a real taste of their future destination. If you love Me and repent of your sins, you will be on the narrow road to heaven. But if you ignore Me and refuse to repent of your sins, you will be on the broad road to hell....

    An adult has full right to choose a religion. It is not mandatory that a person follow same religion from birth to death.

    Even changing from Party Ideology to another Party's ideology is also conversion. Why they don't talk about it. Why don't they bring anti defection (conversion) law for such conversion. Crores of Rupees or plum posts are offered to lure in these Political conversions. Such conversion too should be banned. But, here no politician will talk about political conversion as it suits their convenience. But when it comes to religious conversion, they open their big mouth putting all sorts of allegations. Both are ideologies and people change from one ideology to another as they have freedom to choose the religion. People are not dumb and if any one forces them to change their religion, how many days can they force. In his heart, he will definitely worship his own God. It is the real change of heart could only lead to true conversion. There cannot be any other type of conversion, and if it happens, it would be only temporary.

    Seriously, in this day and age, all this BJP leader thinks is about conversion of his mother. Our constitution clearly advocates freedom of religion and expression. The mother is a free adult and can do what she wants - why should the MLA want to suppress her? Why can't he demand action against his mother who joined Christianity on her own free will. Did the missionaries beat her and arm-twist her? The minister Goolihatti Shekar should focus on bigger things that concern the people - health, education, transport, etc. Causing religious disharmony among the peace-loving people of Karnataka is counter-productive.

    people were accusing conversions by force, luring poor people by paying them money etc.Here in this case she is MLA's mother who neither can be forced nor she is in need of money. Its purely her individual and voluntary choice.So why blame christians or Church?

    GOLIHATTY SHEKAR should listen to his mother, obey her and follow her. Mother is the best guide to truth in life.

    Election is coming near. BJP started collecting points to blind Bhakths. Such a old lady how she can be brain washed. MLAs mother means she may be well educated. Simply showing some colour and making people blind to get votes.

    Actually it's not conversion but diversion to right path. I think it's individuals liberty to choose the path..

    Congress leader K.J. George is quick to respond saying, it is not fair to generalize this for all Churches for the mistake of few. As he admits that there are 'few churches' indulging in these conversions, why don't he help the government in spotting culprits ? These kind of silence and soft approach of community leaders towards the illegal activities committed by their own community members is the boosting force behind these conversions. Where there is conversion, there is friction!

    We don't expect any politician to take custody or speak for the religion. These people are well known for making irresponsible statements. Let the lady (mother of Goolihatty Shekar) come forward and give her statement.

    If your mother has no objection then what police or Govt can do. Even courts have rejected such cases. There is no law in thier books to punish people who have accepted the religion of thier choice without compulsion or lure.

    Jeevan, dont fight or think of fighting. Sooner or later you will convert yourself for the love of christ. If you read the reality of Jesus christ you will never thinking of going against him. Jesus thought us to be merciful and kind. Forgive and love thy neighbor as we love ourselves. . Jesus died on the cross even with pain and agony he said please forgive enemies and love them more than we love ourselves. Also thought us to serve the poor and cloth the naked. In your theory it is conversion but in reality is converting from poverty to normal. Many poor non Christians are educated by Catholics not with a intention of conversation but make them good citizens of this earth. If you go and do a survey if your brother and sister studied in catholic school they will have a completely different mind set than your because they were thought to love one another. Brother stop hatred and love your fellow humans. God bless you.

    Both of you don't worry just for that politician's story. He has to score political mileage using dharma. There are lot of things we as a nation have to focus on. BJP has able leaders to make it happen. Unfortunately it has many who try to use dharma ladder too , to achieve their personal goals.
