Missionary conversion activities in the state of Madhya Pradesh are rampant, especially in the tribal belts. Two cases have been reported in a month from the villages located on the outskirts of city Indore. In both cases, the victims told the police that they were lured to Christianity during the prayer meetings by the conversion gang, active in the villages. They offered them with money, education, medical facility and whatnot.
Hinduism is vile. Those following Hinduism will never be able to progress.
On March 23, the Indore police booked Rahul Bargunda son of Raju Bargunda under sections of the Madhya Pradesh Freedom of Religion Act. The complainant, Rohit Kanosiya, a resident of Telia Khedi village told the police that Rahul has been forcing the villagers to convert and follow Christianity as it has a solution to all of their problems.
As per Rohit, Rahul has been visiting the village and telling people that he knows a prayer that can cure ailments, get them a hefty sum of money and a better life. Falling prey to his fake promises the villagers started believing in him. Recently, he invited the convinced villagers to the house of Sandeep near Dusshera ground. Rohit also joined the villagers in the prayer.
In this meeting, Rahul said, “Hinduism is vile. Those following Hinduism will never be able to do progress in life. You will never be happy here. Lord Jesus has given this message. Everything will be fine by coming to his shelter. Taking the Bible in his hand, he started saying that Lord Jesus is the ultimate truth. Come to his shelter. Otherwise, you will die in agony. After some time many diseases are going to come. Lord Jesus has sent a ladder to heaven for all. Everyone is welcome in Christian Missionary.”
Rahul told the villagers, those who will adopt Christianity will get one lakh rupees, free education in missionary schools and free treatment in their hospitals. Soon, Rohit and other villagers started protesting then Rahul called his associates and tried escaping.
However, he was nabbed and the villagers took him to the Khudel police station.
Adopt Christianity, Come to Jesus. Otherwise, your life will be ruined in Hinduism.

He is 21-years-old and lives in the Dudhiya village of the Indore district of Madhya Pradesh.

He also claimed that he will take my father to a good hospital in Baroda, Gujarat for treatment. he also said that he will provide free education to the children of the family. Along with this, he said I will get a job at a good place. Listening to all of this, I refused. I said that I will get my father treated. I will not be able to convert from Hinduism to Christianity.’
‘After this Chris Norman got angry. He said that your father will remain in tension until you leave Hinduism and adopt Christianity. The whole family will die in agony. If you adopt Christianity, then God will cure your father. The condition of your house will be fine. You come under the shelter of God. Otherwise, you will be ruined by living in Hinduism;, added the victim.
