Comment regarding my post, on Western media coverage of the ethnic cleansing going on in Orissa and other parts of India.
Dear Prof. Guptara,
I am surprised to learn that the killing of Christians and destruction of their habitat is considered by the Western media to be by what you term"religious nutters".
In fact it is a planned attack on Christan's by VHP (Vishwa Hindu Parishad) and Bajrangdal on the tribal Christians in Orrisa because these tribals and backward class people have found freedom in Christianity from the caste system and from bondage to the upper castes.
The upper castes, who constitute only 10% of the total population of India, are agitated because the tribals and other backward class people are finding the true meaning of life and freedom in Jesus and are therefore no longer prepared to believe that they were born simply to serve the upper castes.
Thus it is not that a large number of Hindus are becoming Christians which is disturbing the VHP and Bajrang Dal but the new ideology of Christianity that all are created in the image of God and are therefore equal.
Upper caste Hindus cannot see the masses of people, whom they treated as slaves for centuries, now going out of their cluthes due to the good news of Jesus Christ.
