Daijiworld Media Network - Brahmavar (SP)

Brahmavar, Oct 11: Alleging that religious conversion of Hindus is going on at Hallady-Harkady village within the jurisdiction of Kota police station on a large scale, and demanding stern action against people involved with such activities, activists of Hindu Jagarana Vedike (HJV) tried to stage a flash protest in front of Kota police station on the night of Sunday October 10.

It is said that a family which has changed its religion from being a Hindu family previously, has been offering lures to the members of particularly the Bovi community living locally. Reportedly they have succeeded in converting several Hindus into another religion. On Sunday October 10 too several people were invited to attend a prayer programme held in a house in Hallady-Harkady. Members of the Jagarana Vedike, who came to know of the incident, informed the police. The police, on their part, went there and took six to seven people into custody.

Hundreds of Hindu activists, after coming to know of the incident, gathered in the police station premises at Kota and poured out their anger about such things. They also sought stringent action against the culprits. Kota station house officer Santosh B P, held talks with the Vedike leaders and succeeded in easing the tension. The locals have registered complaint against Jyoti, Prakash, Manohar and Ravi, who reportedly are involved with religious conversions.

Bovi district unit honorary president, Jagadish Kedoor, said that thousands of people from his community living in Saibrakatte, Shiriyara, Hallady-Harkady, Kedoor and others, have been converted into another religion by offering different lures. He said that if this is allowed to be continued, his community faces the danger of losing its association with Hinduism and sought legal action against the concerned.

District leader of the Vedike, Jagadish Kukkehalli, speaking on the occasion, urged the police to take strong action as illegal religious conversion is happening in the district on a large scale.

Jagarana Vedike leaders, Chandra Acharya Shiriyara, PraveenYakshimatha, Shankar Devadiga Kota, Bovi Sangha district leaders, Arun Kalvara, Ganesh Ulloor, Anand Saibrakatte, and Pramod Hande etc were present.

Kota police station police sub-inspector (crime) Pushpa, Brahmavar station house officer Gurunath Hadimane, and Malpe police circle inspector Sharanabasappa got involved with handling law and order situation.

    Why arrest anyone, just beat the people who got converted. Tie them up to pole and beat black and blue and ask them to say JAI SHREE RAM. You do not have guts to do that, what you do is attack the silent meek christian pastor who beleives in sharing gospel. He doest not promise job,housing,money, but he might offer them tea/coffee and snacks. Your Kalladka Bhat school took hundreds of tribal kids from North east and trained them like RSS army and sent them back and they were tribes and not Hindu but tribes. Nobody wanted to know the truth.

    Shanker mangalore,One God or ten Gods,we believe in God with different names and different religions .Many ofus forget that accepting a religion is a personal right ,and wish.Why should make a big issue about someone accepting different religion?They are not children to force.As a adult ,can do and vote why not choose once religion which he finds better to live?There are so many christians turn off their old religion and embrace other religion.we dont make big issue out of it.Even I know other too..Police also should know it and leave to individuellsNot arrest.where are we then?Only everyone who are not steady in their old religion ,do convert.

    Ms. Kusuma Kumari (I purposely let go your professional title here), Do you believe that anybody, who wishes to and has the capacity to study that stream, can be a doctor ? A Lawyer, an Engineer, a journalist, so on ? Similarly, any person can worship Ram, Rahim, or Yesu. Well, we are following our parents' faith by default but once we are 18, we are free to follow whichever faith we want or are interested in. As an educated person, you should know about this freedom than locking yourself within the four wall of social setting. Humanity is above all religions. If you are not a human-being, you are a failure whether you are a doctor, lawyer, engineer or a journalist. These groups, HJV, BD or Sene do no good to the society, they are society's parasites. They are looked after by a political bigwig for his own benefit. The day any of them gets into a trouble, the bigwig will wash his hands off and say I don't know you. That day his Hindu worship will vanish and he will beg for food for survival.

    If you treat them with your good deeds why people from your religion convert to other. Are you fighting for God and His party ? If your argument is they are lured..... don't worry ....You also help them with equal rights with in your religion, give food for hungry , give shelter to homeless , give clothing , listen to their problems, their health , help them in their need. Every religion teaches the same(I think you don't know your own holy scripture) Anybody can convert their heart to true religion of humanity which you are lacking behind....

    I am failed to understand how easily one can sell his faith? If their faith in Hinduism is so shallow it is better for them to leave Hinduism. Any religion you follow your faith in that religion must be strong otherwise the person is oscillating one religion to another. Do not force them to stay back in Hinduism let them go wherever they want neither they stay there too because there faith is very shallow.

    Sir, if your surname is indeed Bhat, you shouldn't be surprised. Before the 18th century, no Indian writer has ever written about a religion called Hinduism. It was term used by Arabs and Persians, who also recognised Brahmin as a separate religion. Slowly and steadily, people followed Brahmin customs (to a tiny extent) and aligned themselves with the Brahmin religion! But they do not understand the Brahmin religion.

    In some of the comments dumb people say conversation is willing done, my question is how can you say it's willingly done are you in touch with those people? Holding public gathering in villages and trying fool poor people. There are few antisocial people in other community, targeting people who are in very desperate situation like illness or financial problems etc, brainwashing them and converting them to their religion. And dear readers kindly don't talk bad about any religion, respect every religion.

    Samarth: how do you classify willing conversion and forced conversions. No single person will get converted in a single day, you people should take more care of these people and allow them in temples, and treat them equals and also get married in their community. And for your kind information all people are intelligent and as you said they are brain washed, so all the people are having brains and cannot be washed as you think. If these people are getting converted please blame yourself and try and change your attitude towards them.

    Many times, I have replied to this question here in this forum. Hindu and Christian boys are being raised with good moral values and with full attention from parents. Full attention is possible because Hindus and Christians do not consider women as delivery machines! Your boys, born in a group pf 10 to 12, do not get any moral upbringing. Indulge in cow theft and smuggling, make easy money, see females as just an object for sex. By hook or crook tame the girls of other religion for sex. That is the only reason while hindu and Christian girls fall for your boys.

    HJV should take to task those who are willing to convert, than those who are asking them to convert. Because, when the foreigners come seeking enlightenment, you guys don't drive them away, you guys welcome them with open arms. Don't play double standards, keep your people happy so that they don't go outside your religion seeking peace.

    D'Souza, here the question is not about self belief, the nuisance is about people from one faith are angry that members of their community outflow to other beliefs. Let whoever want, have any high feelings about their own faith but that does not give them right to force people stay in one faith - each and every person is a free human being to accept any religion - nobody is a slave here on this earth.
