    Valson Taampu is the Principal of St Stephens. He is actually an Ordained minister of Church of North India i.e. A Christian priest. However, he tends to drop the 'Reverend' part of his name that all Priests use. Obviously, it is not that it is an embarrassment, it is just that it lets him merge into the Indian milieu as 'one of the many' i.e. an ordinary Indian with religious affiliation.

    Yet, he was recently in a huge row over the attempted conversion of St Stephen's administrative staff, Subhash Kumar Dash, and leading to the latter's suspension. Das had moved High Court challenging his suspension and accusing St Stephen’s principal Valson Thampu of trying to convert him to Christianity. Thampu astutely revoked the suspension order, issuing high moralistic rationalisation, possibly to avoid public scrutiny and interest that would have damaged the reputation of his Church.

    Now, he has made an interesting commentary.

    He does have a quaint terminology for conversion - head hunting.

    :lol:

    For 55 years, there was no problem with Xtians by RSS. Now since 1800 NGOs have been shut which funded illegal conversions of poor people using money and weapons, suddenly the "Attacks on Christians" have increased.

    Anyone with a sensible mind and some semblance of common sense can make out who has stopped using Muslim card and now using Xtianity as a weapon against Hindu and sister communties.

    Head Hunting! :shocked: Was the Principal of St Stephens sleeping for all these years. If it was Head Hunting then as part of the vaunted Civil Society he should have spearheaded the demand to stop the FCRA funding.

    About Ghar Vapasi part I am very certain it is not designed based on rewards, fraudulent claims, political machinations. So such a thing can and should stay. Actually even the Hindu society should change itself appropriately for this purpose.

    What the Civil member of Civil Society, Reverand Valson Taampu should realize is that even the Christian society (Catholics and Orthodox) are threatened by these evangelists. Before these evangelists try to turn India into another Brazil, we must act to uproot these evangelists. Now I understand why the Japanese and Chinese were against the evangelists in their lands.

    Brazil has 22% to cry corruption for the benefit of US foreign policy, whenever it needs such a war cry, raised. In our case the evangelists are a considerably smaller fraction of the Christian community right now, which itself is not very big currently. The evangelists must be treated like the Bhinderwalas otherwise people like Reverand Valson Thaampu will leave no opportunity to create a Militancy out of the normally peaceful Catholic and Orthodox Christian community. Already in the north east India there are factions of various militant groups that are predominantly evangelist inspired.

    A few cases of NGOs audited and Reverand Valson Thampu is trying to become the EkBall of the whole christian community. Even when these evangelists do not leave the oldline christians.

    It is interesting how the gravy train moves.

    In Finland one years military training is given to most evangelists that are going to India. I guess they are prepared for this anti-christianity mood that is prevailing in India.

    Or maybe preparing for Crusades 2.0.

    That would explain a lot actually.

    is it this Thampu guy who had distributed circulars in some Delhi college, which asked the students not to vote for BJP in lok sabha elections?

    Good they are scared that they will get the thrashing of their lives.

    I love the terms used like for pados, (padres), they are called 'Princes of the Church'. Some Princes indeed, wining and dining on the alms that come their way.

    Or pretend that they are some military organisation with foolish and comical titles like 'Superior General of X Order'! Superior General :pound: Do they have and Inferior General too? Mother Superior? Superior about what and Superior to who?

    Imagine this - The Provincial Superior is ordinarily elected by the Provincial Chapter, subject to confirmation by the Superior General or the General Chapter, depending on the regulations of the particular groups (in the Society of Jesus he is directly appointed by the Father General).

    Everyone is a General, including a 'Father General'. So, he is a General Father.

    9 hospitals and 100 schools. Wow, that is quite a lot. I hope you are satisfied with their work and do not view it as suspicious.

    Most of the states in India have strict Gun laws.
