Re: CONVERSION IS NO VERSION - UNITY IN VARIETY IS THE NATURAL PLAN !
I went through the above article very carefully. All persons have freedom to criticise others for their wrong work. But rarely there are some persons in the world they will even criticise others for their noble work. Late Mother Therese left all her pompous life and took noble service to serve the suffering and rejected ones in the society. Even her enemies who first stood against her service, became friends. Even Muslim countries came forward to offer their cooperation in order to carry out her yeoman service to the public irrespective of cast, creed and colour. It is very easy to write all non-sense sitting in a glass house, but it is very difficult to serve the lepers and aids affected persons by throwing their precious lives into risk.
Of course, seeing her yeoman service and sincere attitude some people must have come to Christianity. She never tried to convert anybody by force or giving some other allurements. The whole world appreciated her excellent service and granted her many national and international awards. One day the great writer Kushwant Singh asked her why you perform this service of sacrifice, she calmly replied 'I see the gracious love of Lord Jesus Christ in others. Hearing her answer he wept without his knowledge. This had come in the Times of India News several years back.
Many people have not taken efforts to study the positive side of Christianity which faced severe persecution up to 3rd century. Of course, there were many people who really deserted the life style of Lord Jesus Christ and went after the titles and pleasures of this world. The crusades always remain in the pages of history as a black spot. The Christian leaders who are supposed to stand with suffering class in the society, stood with Emperors and Kings. During communist revolution in Russia many such leaders were sent to gallows. The so called communists leaders Lenin and Stalin massacred millions of innocent people. Ultimately this movement has become outdated. However, the teachings of Lord Jesus Christ are outstanding. Of course, the so called spiritual leaders must have gone from the the original path. But their services are sincere and genuine.
Many people do not know the truth that the Christian missionaries went to the unreached areas of the world. They established best Schools, Colleges and Universities, Even they formulated grammar for all languages in India too. They impart best education. The Christian community as whole imparts 80% of social work in the world. The Christian countries welcome other religions and allow them to make their own worship places which I saw throughout the world. If you take the whole world, the best education goes to the Christian community and top most leaders including LK Advani of BJP studied in Christian colleges. If there should have been forced conversion, the whole population of this world would have been Christian community. In India too best Schools and Colleges are run by christian community with so many number of social works. Of course, as long as the weaker human beings conduct these programmes, there will be some mistakes and errors. Graham Stain was burnt alive but his wife pardoned the hard core criminals who did it.
Late Fr Damien left his own house and parents in Europe and went to Hawaii Islands to take care of the lepers and ultimate he died of leprosy. What a genuine and sincere love for the humanity?. The people who are least worried about the affliction of the suffering class, can write anything as they want. What is the contribution by the so called Communists in India? The West Bengal went back to 100 years and in Kerala nobody comes to establish any company? They are really looting the public in the name of socialism. The Stalin and Company killed millions of poor ordinary people. Ultimately Russia rejected the socialism which is wrapped in hypocrisy.
Let us not condemn the sincere and yeoman service whether it is being done by Hindu Brothers, Muslim Brothers, Sikh Brothers or Christian brothers. Let us admire and appreciate instead of slinging mud against them.
