`Devilish' Christians targeted


Delhi - India's largest Hindu fundamentalist organisation, closely connected to the nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) which heads the federal coalition government, has started a countrywide campaign to counter the "devilish proselytising of Christian missionaries under the "garb of social service", Rahul Bedi writes.

In their continuing assault against Christianity that allegedly included burning an Australian missionary and his two sons in eastern India, over 15,000 Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) activists plan on visiting nearly one million homes over the next fortnight in the capital, New Delhi, to educate them about the missionaries' plan to "conquer " India. India has 17 million Christians who run many schools, hospitals and charitable institutions.
