Four missionaries were arrested in Palghar district’s Dahanu for attempting to forcibly convert a Vanvasi woman. They tried to lures the woman using money and saying that her troubles would end if she embraced Christianity. The arrested missionaries have been identified as Clement D’bella, Mariyama T Philips, Paramjeet alias Pinky Sharma Kaur, and Parasuram Dharma Dhingra.
On Friday afternoon, the four missionaries entered the old woman’s house in Dahanu’s Saravali Talavpada village. She was reportedly alone at her place when the four attempted to force her to convert. The villagers intervened and handed the evangelists to the police, who booked the four for forcible conversion. The vanvasi areas of the Palghar district, including Dahanu, Talaseri, Jawhar, and Vikramgadh, have been targeted by the evangelicals for their conversion activities for a long time.
The Dahanu police initiated action against the four accused based on the vanvasi woman’s complaint. The four have been booked under IPC (Indian Penal Code) sections 153 (wanton provocation), 295 (injuring or defiling a place of worship with intent to insult the religion of any class), 448 (house trespass), and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention).
The vanvasi population dominates several villages in the Palghar District; hence, the Church-Naxal combine has targeted the region for their activities. An independent fact-finding team set up by Vivek Vichar Manch confirmed the involvement of leftist organizations and Christian missionaries in the brutal lynching of Hindu Sadhus and their driver at Mumbai’s Palghar in April 2020.
In November 2020, the divisiveness sown by Christian missionaries in dividing members of the same family came to the fore when a vanvasi woman named Fulia Dhabade, belonging to Avandhe Village in Palghar, died leaving behind her husband Mahadu and two sons Sudam and Subhash. A fight broke out between two tribal brothers following different faiths concerning their mother’s cremation rites.
“Why Christian Missionaries do not go Muslim dominated areas and start their social service there ?Is it because they will not get sufficient return to their ‘investment” ?”P. Deivamuthu.”
It only happens in Hindu majority India. Can it happen Muslim majority countries?
Highly organised church and its members are masters in 2 types of organised crimes based on victim is a chuch member or outsider.
They are ready to do any crime to convert people to christianity as they are brainwashed to convert by hook or crook as this is a noble deed as per christianity. Missionaries should be treated as enemy of state and laws should be made to deal with them on iron hands which doesn’t look possible in sickular state like India which is pro muslim and christian but anti hindu.
