A priest who was posing as a police sub-inspector has been arrested in Devala near Gudalur in Nilgiris, on Tuesday for using his fake status to convert tribals.

K Shymon P Paul, 38, of Koladi in Kottayam and a member of Nelliyalam branch of Gospel in Action Fellowship in India was seen wearing a police uniform. When Devala police inquired into the matter, it became known that the priest was not only converting the tribals, but was also conning people into giving him free food, accommodation and transport services.

He also used his fake status as a policeman to covert tribals into Christianity, police said.

Paul had a fake ID and a bank passbook with his picture in police uniform.

He has been booked under IPC sections 419, 420, 468 and 471 for cheating and fraud.

The forced conversions of tribals by Christian missionaries is not a new thing.  According to christianagression.org, “Missionaries are systematically targeting specific regions of India in hopes of converting the entire nation to their brand of fanatic Christianity.”

A few days back, while the world watched with bated breath the unfolding tragedy in Nepal, a few on twitter were busy propagating Christian missionary agenda.

The twitter handle, belonging to a certain Matthew Armendarez, which was the first to tweet religiosity, tweeted that about how 99.5% of Nepal is untouched by Christianity and could not hear the Gospel before death.

Similarly, an insensitive US pastor Tony Miano had tweeted, “Praying 4 the lost souls in Nepal. Praying not a single destroyed pagan temple will b rebuilt & the people will repent/receive Christ.”
