Militant Evangelism

The burgeoning market of harvesting “Souls” in India

Welcome to the new age militant evangelism in India.

In the past decade, there has been a spurt of NGOs in India, which have played a key role in spreading communal hatred and have actively engaged in converting people (mostly Hindus) in the garb of doing charity.

One of them, Elijah Challenge, openly professes on their website - 'The Elijah Challenge trains committed disciples & missionaries to proclaim the "kingdom of God" effectively to non-Christian, "gospel-resistant" people groups... The goal is the fulfillment of the Great Commission - making disciples of all nations and "teaching them to obey" everything Jesus commanded his disciples.'

They declare on their website – “We have received reports that churches trained by The Elijah Challenge are now the fastest-growing congregations in North India.”

Another such NGO – aptly named ‘Harvest India’ harvest souls for Jesus, under the garb of providing care to the orphans, elderly and Leprosy affected population in rural Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. They have been getting full support and even encouragement from the ‘secular’ ruling political party in these States.

There many such extremist evangelist organisations - like the following - which receive funds from foreign sources:

- Elijah Challenge
- Harvest India
- Gospel for Asia & its sister organizations
- Joshua Project
- Shalom Global Foundation (SGF) 

These organisations and many more like these - vehemently dismiss the spiritual and cultural traditions of all other Faith but their own. They aim to 'liberate Hindus' from their cultural roots and enslave them with rigid, closed, divisive and linear Christian dogma. 

They are obsessed with the idea of converting the followers of the Sanatana Dharma, and reject the all-inclusive Vedic philosophy. It is undemocratic and unconstitutional for a religious group to not accept other faiths as equal and true.

Unfortunately the mainstream media has maintained a conspicuous silence on this issue. 

Do we have the strength and integrity to stop this?
