Pratap Simha > Others > Kaan Kholke Suniye Mr. Khan!

Kaan Kholke Suniye Mr. Khan!

“My Name Is Khan….released on 12th Feb … the movie can be summed up quite simply in one word ‘Horrible”!!If you need 2 words, then “Bull Shit”!!A 3 word review:  “It’s sheer torture”! ‘Pain in the ass’ is the 4 word summary.

Sit through this lousy movie for 3 hrs and tell me if you don’t agree!

I watched the 3-D flick AVATAR  @ Urvashi Cinema(a theatre in Bengaluru) on my last visit .. Got a Coke & Popcorn free. I watched MNIK at the same place, and wondered why they didn’t give at least ONE Anacin tablet free!!On the eve of it’s release, this lousy movie got the wholehearted support of Barkha Dutt (NDTV) and Rajdeep Sardesai {CNN-IBN} “Go watch MNIK, give, an answer to the Shiv sena”. It left me with a sinking feeling of how the media misleads the general public. What an honourable deed indeed, from this very Sardesai, who, as recently as 2 ½ months ago created such a brouhaha about ‘paid news’ and it’s follies!

For all this, what’s in this MNIK ? The dialogue “Mr. President {Bush}, my name is Khan, but I’m not a terrorist” runs in a nauseatingly repetitive manner throughout the movie. It’s irritating, disgusting and maddening, to say the least! To spread the message that all Muslims are not terrorists, they’ve created this crashing bore of a 3 hr movie… MNIK!!! After all, did anyone say that all Muslims are terrorists? Even a dimwit wouldn’t!! Yet, why is Shahrukh so consumed by this guilt? Where’s the need to shout from the rooftops that all Muslims are not terrorists? Let’s take this further, WHY did this need to shout, arise?

You have shown that America views all Muslims, all those with ‘Khan’ as their surname, as terrorists. Tell us, Mr. Khan,

WHO are * Mohd. Atta * Abdul Azeez Almori * Majid Maqib * Nawab Al Hazmi *Fayeed Rasheed *   Mohd. Algamdi * Hamdaa Algamdi *Khalid Almidar , who bombed  The World Trade Centre on Sep 11th, 2001 and killed 2995 innocent people?

WHICH are the countries supporting and financially aiding those mentioned above?

Isn’t it AFTER the WTC bombings that Americans started viewing all Muslims with suspicion?

Hello, Mr. Shahrukh Khan, WHO killed the 11 people  in the RDX explosions in Pune, the day after your movie was released?

WHO is responsible for *The Lumbini Garden bombing in Hyderabad * Coimbatore Blasts * Ahmedabad & Surat Bomb blasts * The train bombings in Spain *The London bombings * The Akshardham attacks * The Parliament attacks * The Mumbai attacks ??

WHO is spreading panic and terror in the name of all merciful GOD??

WHO is stooping so low as to attack and terrorise innocent women and children from other religions?

You feel humiliated when KAANS (ears) become alert and suspicious on hearing the name Khan; have you EVER FELT the depths of pain and agony of the common man who’s lost his parents, his wife and his child in the bombings from people of YOUR community, MR. KHAN???

Is it so difficult for you to feel the pain of children from other religions when they die AGONISING deaths?

Forget about Israel and America; what have WE INDIANS done to you? WHY are we killed in bomb blasts on roads, in restaurants, houses, marketplaces??

WHO is it that’s killing us this way?? To WHICH RELIGION do *Mullah Omar * Osama Bin Laden *Mohd. Ali Zarkhawi * Ilyas Kashmiri , belong???

If you want to justify your stand saying “Terror has no religion” PRAY…. WHY then do YOU ‘OWN ‘the above mentioned as “one of your own”?

WHY is your sick movie running to packed houses in Pakistan, Arab countries and Britain, even when it FLOPPED in INDIA? In WHAT frame of mind are the people who collect funds in Karachi, Islamabad and Dhaka, with the aid of Mullah Omar & Bin Laden’s posters?


WHO created for themselves the atmosphere of SUSPICION? Agreed, there are thorns to civilised human society to be found in each of the thousand castes, creeds, communities and religions of the world.

WHY, then, is it that only Muslims are singled out for suspicion where others aren’t?

Sure, there are traitors and anti-social elements to be found aplenty even among Hindus. If inflicting pain can be labelled “terror”, then, Naxalites are terrorists too! All the Naxalites are Hindus, the major difference here, is that NO HINDU would ever accept a Naxalite as ‘ one of our own’!! We call them anti-social elements, and ask that they be eliminated only with the use of force! These Naxalites are being quietly hunted down in a secret mission, ‘Operation Green Hunt’, by none other than HINDU soldiers! But, why do Pakistani soldiers and the ISI support so blatantly, the Jihadis?

What can we call this mindset? On what basis do the Islamic Terrorists call for Separate Homelands in The Philippines, Thailand and China’s Xinjiang region?

To which religion do they belong, those who kill thousands of innocents in bomb attacks, in the name of religion? Your call for Separatism is heard in The Philippines, China, Thailand, even Britain and America!!

Where’s the guarantee that you will not demand separate homelands, in each and every district and state, where you turn into the majority community, either by political arm-twisting or terror tactics??

Then again, on WHAT basis is Pakistan claiming Kashmir as it’ s own?

On what basis have Kashmiris plunged headlong into the Separatist struggle? Is it not RELIGIOUS FUNDAMENTALISM playing on YOUR minds in all of the above instances?

We have no better example than Kashmir to understand what happens to the rest of the people when Muslims turn into the majority!!

When the match-fixing scandal surfaced, we mercilessly threw Azharuddin out of our psyche , just as we did Ajay Jadeja and Nikhil Chopra . Though Jadeja emerged Victorious, being proved innocent, we never stopped suspecting him!! But what did Azhar do? Instead of denying the allegations and facing an enquiry, rather than appealing to the court, he claimed that “I’m being made a scapegoat just because I’m a Muslim”, when he got caught!!Through this he’s clearly accepted that he’s a traitor!!

Who sent such a heinous traitor to parliament today? Why was the Hyderabadi Azhar made to contest from Moradabad? Isn’t the fact that Moradabad has a Muslim majority the sole reason?

Don’t you feel the NEED for INTROSPECTION, MR.KHAN?? Even Hindus have facilitated victories of cheats and looters, but have they EVER sent a TRAITOR to Parliament?

Isn’t the “GHETTO mentality” of a particular Community glaringly obvious here?

Hindus like Rakesh Sharma and Rahul Dholakia have made documentaries and feature films about the Modi Govt. and the Hindu Khattar community; regarding the 2002 Gujarat violence. 700 Muslims died in the Gujarat violence… more than 10,000 Hindus have died as victims of terrorism in Kashmir. More than 7 Lakh Hindus have been displaced from their homeland, living in refugee camps.

Which Muslim has made documentaries and feature films about their plight? In the wake of the IPL team selection controversy, you issued a statement that “Pakistanis are good neighbours”!

How did you have the heart to make such a statement, Sharukh Khan??

From which country are the terrorists who attacked Mumbai on 26th Nov 2008 and killed183 Indians? Where is Kasab from?

WHICH country is responsible for ALL the bomb blasts in India right up to now? Do you know what Pakistani fast bowler Sohail Tanveer said to the Pakistani media after the IPL controversy? “The zehneeyat( nature by birth] of Hindus is like this” ! A Pakistani journalist added to this by saying “Ram Ram is the chant, but a dagger by their side”. It’s another issue that the great Indian secular media, which creates a controversy over every statement written by Baal Thackeray in ‘SAAMNA’; conveniently chose to cover up Sohail Tanveer’s insulting and infuriating statements!!

When it comes to promoting your movie MNIK, you keep tweeting day and night,  Sharukh Khan…just go to You Tube,  see for yourself and hear Sohail Tanveer’s demeaning statements…..on what basis do you say “Pakistanis are good neighbours” , of a country which is filled with people only of this mindset?

You really have a very narrow frame of mind!

We never supported Tamilians, who were one of us, in their Separatist struggle. There may have been strikes and disturbances in TN for political reasons. But we sent our own Army in1987 to quell Prabhakaran. Except the Tamilians, none from Hindu society protested against this action! But, why is it that you create a ruckus and stone buses in India, when there are disturbances in Israel or Iraq??

There is this scene in MNIK, where a banquet has been arranged with the American president, for which entrance fee of $500 is charged .When Shahrukh wants an entry after paying up, the lady in charge there says ”Honey, this is only for Christians”! Have you ever come across at anytime, anywhere, Christians restricting a fundraiser to ‘Christians only’?! However much we may find fault with their missionary zeal in Conversions, none can point an accusing finger at the generosity of either Christians or Christian organisations!! Where was the necessity to portray Christians in a bad light? Today, it’s not just one religion which suspects you. The entire world looks at you suspiciously… WHY?

NDTV’s Barkha Dutt  asked Uddhav Thackeray of the Shiv Sena, “Are you creating such a big racket because Shahrukh Khan is a Muslim?” , in light of the controversy which had arisen before the release of MNIK. Just imagine what would be the scenario, if Hindus had looked upon The Three Khans, Aamir, Shahrukh and Salman as Muslims. They wouldn’t be stars on the small screen even, let alone superstars!!! If Shahrukh Khan is a big star today, remember it’s because of the love and faith of Hindus too!!We have always looked upon Shahrukh, Aamir, Salman, Saif, Bismillah Khan, Amjad Ali Khan, A R Rehman, Alla Rakha and Abdul Kalam as Indians, never as Muslims! Their religion has NEVER been important to us! This is why so much had to be written. If an ordinary person, any Tom, Dick or Harry had made this kind of movie, who would’ve bothered? But, Shahrukh being such a popular star, there are enough people hanging on to every word he utters as the Gospel truth. It’s unethical and unfair to make misleading movies, which create animosity and vitiate the atmosphere. Learn at least something from Aamir who has made movies with a social message like Sarfarosh, Lagaan, Taarein Zameen Par and 3 Idiots! Else, someday in the near future, people will say, “Shahrukh sucks”!!

    I Do not agree watever u’ve penned.. watering the weed of “Hindu-Muslim” hatred needs be condemned.. MNIK portrays and proves only an innocent’s Love..
    the movie title is proving to be controversial.. i agree the movie is not that entertaining but one cannot deny a message of humanity and peace in it..

    I hate those who hate SRK.. SRK is such a power personality on planet earth that someone strongly speaking against him gets noticed and gets famous instantly..
    irrespective of how good/bad his movies are, he’s reached the pinnacle of success that one can only dream of..
    Pratap its ur turn to get huge fame now.. keep up the work… All the best..

  19. Nalini says:


    Nice article. Along with SRK, Karna Johar should also be blamed for this ugly movie. Because he is the director and Sharukh khan’s chela. Have they thought of thousands of kashmiri pandits who have been killed innocently. How about a movie “my name is pandit”?

  20. Radha says:

    hi Sir….

    Nice article…. Now days movies also started showing more about religious than entertainment…. atleat one scene in mosque…. about my name is Khan is too irritating…

  24. Chinraj Shetty H says:

    i totally agree with what NIVEDITHA said… even i had same kind of things in my mind wen i was reading this article…. i dont understand, why a great journalist like you is writing such things like “WE HINDUS & YOU MUSLIMS”…. we all are firstly human beings ,which we should not forget… we all are same, and there should not be any kind of discrimination in the name of religion….. In this movie he has shown how these BLODDY AMERICANS treat the people coming from other nation and of other race, they have shown the attitude of americans towards others(of other nation)….more or less every individual of america has got the same attitude towards any one of us(indians),either it is muslims or hindus……. but most of the muslims are treated really badly in america, which everyone should accept…..

    many of them has written comments on your favour, they r all your fans and just take your words blindly…. please dont mislead them….

  25. Mao Holloway says:

    Hey! Just had to chime in. I honestly liked your post. Keep up the good effort.

  26. Aditya says:

    Hi friends ….can some one tell me how can I make this article reach out to Shahrukh khan, Rajdeep sardesai and “Burkha” dutt….

  27. Sudhindra says:

    Many people already started saying “Sharukh Sucks!!”. I had been a great fan of him until I watched Kabhi Alvida Na Kehena, which too was a movie which tried to justify the wrong thing as the right. He is really acting as if he is unaware of social responsibility he has being a superstar.

  28. Anand says:

    Mr. Pratap simpha, this is a very nice article, all indians must stop watching Sharukh khan’s movies. It should be published through out india in all newspapers.

  29. I agree with you also it certainly seeing help lot of people.

  30. Vinay H M says:

    Hi Pratap ,

    Society can only be seen in the name of PEOPLE. Only the people who matters , but some selfish thoughts want divert the LIVING society meanwhile making the profits out of it. ULTIMATELY COMMON is the VICTIM,

    people are bringing AAMIR in between?.

    Dear Pratap, I think you have never thought of this….

    A responsible Journalist is the one who should be UNBIASED. When you were new

    to this profession, your articles used to be so fresh, they used to highlight the

    POSITIVENESS and used to show the BRIGHT SIDE of Life.

    They were so articulate that, It inspired many youngsters, people in middle age

    including me to look forward towards a bright future of our country with responsible

    journalists like you.

    But it’s unfortunate that you too are a BIASED Journalist, who is a PUPPET in the


    IF your article is boiled down, then the residue is just one point and one point only.

    HISTORY !!!!

    History depicting the Agony, pain, panic and turbulance.

    With the virtue of this History, you want to yell to the world that the people out

    there belonging to that perticular religion are Bad and cruel.

    And you want everyone to be against it and this is the sort of AWARENESS you want

    to spread.

    Let me give you an example of a country which has perhaps seen the worst history

    in the entire world, the country which has witnessed the worst possible cruelty, The

    HOLOCAUST, Worldwars……. GERMANY.

    This country was depicted as the country filled with DEUTSCH MEN who would

    mercilessly kill jews.

    But today, GERMANY is a country where peace prevails. HUMANITY EXISTS…….

    People have come out of the WORST HISTORY OF BRUTALITY, WITH LOVE AND


    Today they are SUPER POWER and a PEACEFUL NATION.

    I can say this confidently, because I have lived in Germany for long enough.

    People have become MATURE ENOUGH to realise that HUMANITY IS BIGGER THAN

    RELIGION or NATIONALITY. This is the reason for them to BREAK THE WALLS and

    Get united.









    Now let me come to few statements given by you……

    You had written in vijaya karnataka saying that ‘ for Mr.Khan his religion is of top


    and in the later edition you had written suggesting Mr.Khan’ to stop preaching the

    country the integrity of religion he has in his home (since in his home they practice

    both religions) ‘.

    Dont you think these two lines are CONTRADICTING !!!!!!

    one pointing the non integrity and the other intergrity !!!

    And This Contradiction is due to the BIAS you have against the people belonging to

    that religion!!!

    Coming to the movie.

    In the movie ‘My Name is Khan’,There is a SCENE where, inside the mosque, the

    verses of quran will be misconstructed by an extremist and preached in a

    provocative manner to others, to seek blood.

    This will be interrupted by Khan and he lets all know The real meaning of the verses






    DEAR PRATAP, You are still young, you have a lot of potential…… You can

    channelise this potential to show the country a new direction, TO BREAK THE

    Interview of a Christian Evangelist in India

    By: Bandyopadhyay Arindam
    The world today could have been a much better place for all of us, had we all refrained from trying to prove the superiority of our own religion………..

    This is an interview of “Father Johnson’ after his award by the Government of India for his exemplary work in India in enlightening the people in the path of the ONLY God. Father Johnson returned to the USA after 10 years of service, to uplift the people of India in the name of God. The interview was taken in July 2005 by a journalist in Houston, USA……

    Welcome home Father. You have been in India for 10 years, where “our mission’ is still going on. Tell me Father, how is India?

    India is a fascinating country, a land of contrasts. Modern India is the largest democracy, the budding economic superpower, with the second-largest pool of scientists and engineers in the world. India is also the only surviving ancient civilization with over one sixth of the world population. At one time, not so long ago, when Europe was in the “dark ages’ and America was not even “discovered’, India was a far advanced and developed country with a contribution of over 25% of world GDP till the 17th century and far advanced in all aspects of life, be it knowledge, philosophy, science, mathematics, arts, astronomy or navigation.

    Ella Wheeler Wilcox, (1850-1919), American poet and journalist, wrote “India – The land of Vedas, the remarkable works contain not only religious ideas for a perfect life, but also facts which science has proved true. Electricity, radium, electronics, airship, all were known to the seers who founded the Vedas.”

    Dick Teresi, American author of “Lost Discoveries’ mentioned “Some one thousand years before Aristotle, the Vedic people asserted that the earth was round and circled the sun….Two thousand years before Pythagoras, philosophers in northern India had understood that gravitation held the solar system together, and that therefore the sun, the most massive object, had to be at its center….Twenty-four centuries before Isaac Newton, the Hindu Rig-Veda asserted that gravitation held the universe together….. The Sanskrit speaking people subscribed to the idea of a spherical earth in an era when the Greeks believed in a flat one…..The Indians of the fifth century A.D. calculated the age of the earth as 4.3 billion years; scientists in 19th century England were convinced it was 100 million years…”

    Despite all its riches, history says that India never invaded any country. On the contrary, India has been repeatedly assaulted and conquered by numerous invaders and has been ruled by “foreigners’, first the Muslims and then the British for over a thousand years. India, before the advent of the British rulers, was a rich and prosperous country.
    Rev. Jabez T. Sunderland (1842-1936), Unitarian minister and reformer, wrote that “…when the British first appeared on the scene, India was one of the richest countries of the world; indeed, it was her great riches that attracted the British to her shores. For 2,500 years before the British came on the scene and robbed her of her freedom, India was self-ruling and one of the most influential and illustrious nations of the world ….. This wealth was created by the Hindus’ vast and varied industries.”

    What about Hinduism as a religion?

    Hinduism has a deep philosophical and spiritual heritage that has repeatedly mesmerized the world including western scientists, leaders and philosophers. Despite propaganda to the contrary, Hindus, like us, believes in one Supreme God but they do so in many forms, that helps to develop personalized relations. Hinduism is the oldest major religion in the earth with 900 million followers. Unlike monotheistic institutionalized, religions like Judaism, Islam or Christianity, it is not based on any single prophet or scripture, but allows its followers all the freedom to pursue God and Truth in their own way, while living harmoniously with all creation.

    We know that the Hindus are tolerant of other religions. Recently, UNESCO pointed out that out of 128 countries where Jews lived before Israel was created, only one, India, did not persecute them and allowed them to prosper and practice Judaism in peace. Similarly the Zoroastrians, when driven out of Persia by Islam were given shelter by the Hindus in India and still coexist in India peacefully. Very recently, the Dalai Lama, driven from Buddhist Tibet, has been accepted with open arms. Such is the ethos of Hinduism and India.

    I have heard that Mark Twain once said that “In religion all other countries are paupers; India is the only millionaire’. I have also read Arnold Toynbee’s writing “…at the religious level, India has not been a recipient; she has been a giver. About half the total number of the living, higher religions are of Indian origin’. What do you think about it?

    We know India gave birth to religions like Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, and Jainism. Hinduism, though the predominant religion, has, to quote Aldous Huxley, “never been a persecuting faith, have preached almost no holy wars and have refrained from that proselytizing religious imperialism which has gone hand in hand with political and economic oppression of colored people.’

    What many do not know and I will not elaborate further for obvious reasons, is that there are researchers who think that the teachings of Jesus Christ have something to do with the ancient wisdom of Vedas. The Hindu concepts of “karma’, and “reincarnation’, which are part of the New Age Movement that we see today, were not unknown to Jesus.

    Then Father, why do we need to convert people in India?

    You see, we in the western world, have the “white man’s burden’ of civilizing the rest of the world. We also have the need and desire to spread the message of Christ, since we believe that it is the ONLY way to salvation and all other nonbelievers will go to hell. The faith in Christianity is being eroded in Europe and America. That is why our Pope on his visit to India said, “Just as in the first millennium, the Cross was planted on the soil of Europe, and in the second on that of the Americas and Africa, we can pray that in the third Christian millennium a great harvest of faith will be reaped in this vast and vital continent.’

    Why do you target India?

    India is the right country because Hindu Indians are generally peace-loving tolerant, law abiding people who are truthful and virtuous. India”s devotion to being good rather than being clever comes nearer the heart of a true civilization, said W. J. Grant, in his book,
    “The spirit of India’. The unsuspecting Indians have always welcomed everybody on their shore and still keep on doing so. You cannot say the same about a Muslim country or of communist China. You see Hindus are such naive – they go out of their way to say that “all religions are same – they all lead to God’. Christians and for that matter, no other religion, says that.

    Where does your resource come from?

    There are five major aid-giving countries, viz., USA, Germany, Britain, Italy and the Netherlands. According to the available data, in the last decade alone, foreign aid organizations received more than 2.5 billion dollars. This is only official statistics. According to the record and report of the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India, the statistics about the foreign aid being received by Indian Non Government Organizations shows that 80% of it is meant only for the Christian organizations that have been buying their ways into the Indian society and converting unsuspecting people under the guise of social service.

    How powerful is Christianity in India?

    Oh, though we are only 2.4% of the population officially, we have a large control over the country because of our economic invasion. You see, the present leader of the main political party-The Congress Party of India is a Roman Catholic with close contact with the Vatican. There are Christian Chief ministers in 5 out of 29 states. Because of the British rule of India, we have a large section of the leaders of India who look up to us. Believe me, we are the second largest land owners in India. We own and control 80% of the Indian media like NDTV 24*7, CNN-IBN ,AAJ TAK, THE TEHELKA etc and newspapers .The best example is how these media made a huge hue and cry over the Gujarat riots.Riots have happened everywhere in India.But in case of Gujarat riots, the reports were deliberately inflated,stories were built up and a systematic,planned malicious and slanderous campaign was launched against the NDA government.
    Inspite of the fact that India took giant leaps in progress in every field and there was a surge in National pride and self confidence for every Indian during their tenure,India’s Most Popular Government led by India’s Finest Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee was made to suffer shock defeat. We overtly or covertly have alliance with key political associations. So it is very easy for us to influence the right people.

    You must have a very organized system?

    Yes, we do. Have you heard about the Joshua Project? It identifies and highlights the people groups of the world that have the least exposure to the Gospel and the least Christian presence and shares this information to encourage pioneer church-planting movements among every ethnic group. The Joshua Project has identified the North India Hindi belt as “the core of the core of the core” because of its population density (40% of the Indian population- the states of Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh lies in this region); it is the religious hub of India; and it has the smallest Christian presence in India. Thus detailed plans have been drawn up to target India’s 75,000 Pin Codes.

    The Seventh Day Adventists owes its Indian success to Canadian evangelist Ron Watts, President for the South Asian Division. When he entered India, in 1997, the Adventist Church had 225,000 members after 103 years of operations. In five years, he took it to 700,000.

    Some methods used include the 10-Village and the 25-Village Programs, which involve five sets of laymen, under guidance from a regular pastor, who identify 10 or 25 villages in close proximity. Once the villages were selected, the teams would approach the leaders of each village and invite them to send two leaders to a 10-day seminar at a nearby resort, at the organization’s expense. It is before no time that the local leaders will then start working for our faith and organization. In 1998, there were seventeen 10-Village Programs and 9,337 were baptized. In 1999, forty programs were held and nearly 40,000 people baptized.
    Under the Christian Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y. Samuel Rajashekar Reddy, the Adventists shifted to a 50-village plan. They began baptizing at the rate of 10,000 persons per month and have increased it to 5,000 persons per day all over India.

    The US-based Maranatha Volunteers International provides buildings for the Seventh-day Adventist Church. They are committed to build 750 churches in 2 years in India. The Oregon based, Fjarli family have a goal to build 1000 churches at a rate of 1 per day.

    How do you carry out conversion attempts?

    You see the local people are so simple and naïve that they do not have any clue as what out motive or means are. We target mostly the poor, illiterate, tribal people because they are the easiest to convert. We do that by various means – we establish schools, hospitals that overtly or subtly promote our faith, we allure them with money or goods to the needy when they convert, we “stage’ miracle cures, we use our influence on the media, we use our experts in propaganda, we promote the influential people and so on. We use the money sent to us by unsuspecting religious and faithful Christians from all over the world. We have numerous NGO and AID organizations to funnel the money into the country. There are a great number of missionaries of various denominations who are working there, all literally competing for the most number of converts. The Southern Baptists alone are a group that has nearly 100,000 career missionaries in North India, all working to spread our “good word.”

    We convince the “natives’ by our appearances and even use their own culture. A native converted person will continue to use his Hindu name so as not to alienate himself. Some of the numerous Catholic priests in Southern India dress like “sannyasis’ (monks), and call their organizations “ashramas’ (hermitage). This is to make Christianity more similar to the Vedic traditions. Bharat Natyam, the classical dance of India, is also taught in the Christian schools, but with Christian symbols and meanings replacing the Vedic. This is all in the attempt to actively sway Hindus over to Christianity. The Evangelical Church of India (ECI), established in 1954, targets the slums, scheduled castes and scheduled tribes, in cities and villages. Its logo depicts a cross struck deep in a lotus, the seat of Hindu divinity.

    Is the so called caste system in India an advantage?

    The “Caste-ism in India’ is a boon to us. Though Varna or caste was once an essential part of the culture, based on occupation and vocational skills, which kept the civilization going for over 5000 years, caste-ism is a degenerated socio-political system now that has been declared illegal. However it is one big weapon against Hinduism. We have learnt from the colonial British that it is very easy to divide the population on the basis of caste and religion based politics and we use it to our own interest to the maximum. We join the anti-Hindu forces and help to keep the stigma of caste-ism alive for our own benefit. We target the “untouchables’ (the unprivileged people, that has so marvelously crafted to be a result of the Hindu religion and not the social system) and convert them in the lure of “liberating’ them. However I must confess that we maintain their “untouchability’ by not allowing them to mix with the general Christians, maintaining separate entry to churches and even giving them separate churches and cemeteries.

    We also use opportunities that God gives us. During natural disasters like floods, earthquakes and the recent Tsunami, taking advantage of the need, we were able to convert successfully entire low caste villages in Tamil Nadu to Christianity with the lure of money and aid.

    How successful are you in your conversion attempts.

    Oh we are doing a good job. The Northeast Indian states like Assam, Nagaland, and Manipur, have witnessed a surge of nearly 200% in their Christian population in the past 25 years.
    Their grasp is so strong now that practicing Hinduism is forbidden in some areas. Hindus can no longer do worship or “puja’ in the open because of our influence.
    In another northeast state, Tripura, where there were no Christians at the time of India’s independence, 55 years ago, there are now over 120,000 today. The figures are even more striking in Arunachal Pradesh, where there were only 1710 Christians in 1961, but over 1 million today, along with over 780 churches. In the southern state of Andhra Pradesh, churches are coming-up every day in far flung villages and there is an attempt to set-up one near Tirupati, the world famous Hindu temple. Many of the North-East separatist movements, such as the Mizo or the Bodos, are not only Christian dominated, but also sometimes function with the covert backing of the missionaries. Christian Nagaland terrorists have been killing non-Christians for decades on end. More than 20,000 people have lost their lives to insurgency in Assam and Manipur in the past two decades. We understand that there are some social problems that crept up – the northeast states are the highest in India in terms of drugs and AIDS related problem – but we accept that as “casualties of war” –that should not deter us from our goal.

    Do you face any resistance?

    Of course we do. But we brand any resistance as “Hindu fundamentalism or militancy” and the media and our favorite leaders take care of the rest. We have set the mind of the unsuspecting population in a way, that whenever any of our people are harassed, attacked or killed, from any reason including their own faults, the blame automatically goes to these so called “Hindu fundamentalist and Communal Elements” and even though almost all of these instances are later proved to have nothing to do with these Hindu groups, the initial hue and cry that is raised makes sure the memories persist in the mind of the populace and the sympathy stays with us. There are instances when nuns have been proved to be raped by Christians, but the blames continues to stay with the Hindus.

    Is there any legal barrier?

    Yes there are some rules and laws that sometimes impair our activities. The Indian Supreme Court had declared that: “The right to propagate religion does not mean the right to convert… Conversion done under allurement, use of force and fraud in which the poverty or ignorance of the individual is taken advantage of, is not only undemocratic but also unconstitutional…Respect for all religions is the foundation of secularism whereas the seeds of conversion lie in religious intolerance.”. Anti conversion laws have been passed in various states. But as I said, we have our ways.

    Sometimes the law does get us though. We had some instances where members of our faith have been convicted with resultant imprisonment or expulsion. As in churches all over the world, some clergymen have been penalized for cases of sexual exploitation, including pedophilia. But that does not deter us from our goal and our almighty Lord takes care of our soul.

    How satisfied are you with the progress of the missions?

    It is really satisfying. We find enormous pleasure in converting the Hindu “pagans’. However I wish we could do more. I wish I could say like St Francis Xavier, during the Goa Inquisition in 1560, “When I have finished baptizing the people, I order them to destroy the huts in which they keep their idols; and I have them break the statues of their idols into tiny pieces, since they are now Christians. I could never come to an end describing to you the great consolation which fills my soul when I see idols being destroyed by the hands of those who had been idolaters.”

    Thank you, Father for your time and honesty.
    Thank you, my son. God bless you.


    “Christianity offers nothing that is not already available somewhere in the many forms of Hinduism. Hinduism never rejected the teachings of Jesus. Those who have converted either agreed with a gun pressed at their skulls as in Goa, or because it provided an escape from caste tyranny, as well as a guaranteed professional advancement. Through its Vedic legacy, Hinduism respects all faiths. It clearly states that God is one, but has many forms”.
    (Paul William Roberts, author of, “Empire of the Soul: Some journeys in India’)

    When i read S L Bhyrappa’s Aavarana i came to know how Muslims destroyed our country and culture. This article shows the mindset of so called celebrities… If you talk against Hinduism and the our Culture you’ll become secular but if you talk against the Muslim/christian then you are a Non secular and narrow Minded. All hindus get adjusted to all the community and other communities hate them to the core. How many Muslims have Hindu’s as their Heroes ( Not even 5%).

  41. Aravind says:

    Mr. Shahrukh Khan, you addressed the country (and you always do) saying all Muslims aren’t terrorist! Everyone is aware of this fact, no need for awareness!
    DO THIS JOB: Address those who are spreading terrorism, ask them to stop violence! Being proud and possessive of community isn’t a bad thing, but also be possessive of your own country atleast of human beings.
