September 28, 2016:  Author of ‘Shiva, the Lord of Yoga’ and thirty other books- Dr. David Frawley talks about the missionary assault on Hindu dharma in his recent article in Hindu Post. The Padma Bhushan awardee believes, Christian acceptance of religious freedom is mainly to allow their freedom to convert others and does not include any true respect for other traditions.

He says, “As a western Hindu critic of Christian theology, I have often been criticized, including by some Hindus, for my statements against Christianity, including Christian missionary efforts. I have been called a hardline or fundamentalist Hindu for questioning prime Christian dogmas like salvation by belief, Jesus as the only Son of God, or suggesting that Christian charities can be a mask for conversion activities.”

NewsGram brings to you top news around the world today.

Dr. David Frawley’s perspective about Christians is criticized by liberal Hindus who believe all religions are one and they all have the same goal, so each and every religion should be honored and not criticized. Some even state that Jesus was a saint or yogi, and many exalted Christian mystics and New Age Christians believe in karma and rebirth.

But, Frawley considers the thinking to be narrow and naïve which misses the reality of missionary conversion activity that is going on in the world, especially in India.

He believes, Hindus in India are perhaps the main target of the global missionary movement and they use the money, media, and even false allures for conversation. They are well-funded missionaries from America, Catholic Church, and mainstream Protestant groups from European countries. The missionaries’ assault on other religions includes Buddhists, Jains, and Sikhs.

He further said, “As long as Christians unleash their missionary warriors against Hindus, Hindus must counter them and expose their wrong beliefs. Christians cannot talk about religious harmony and respect while setting their missionary armies upon the world. Their mentality is not one of honoring the Divine in all, but of promoting a well-funded and determined conversion agenda for one point of view only.”

Dr. David Frawley (Pandit  Vamadeva Shastri) D. Litt., is a western born teacher or guru in the Vedic tradition.

      if you don’t see elephants running across you neighborhood it doesn’t mean that elephants didn’t exist?, Move out of your basement then you’ll realize that Christian conversion is rampant in some parts of India and the downright unethical, purely scummy tactics they use to lure poor people into their cult is just appalling.

  • Aakash Mandyal

    We should consider this thought of David Frawly if its happening then we should take some strong step towards this to preserve our culture and religion. No one has a right to criticise other religion.

  • Antara

    I do not think that every single Christian tries to convert the Hindus essentially!

  • Aakash Mandyal

    We need to go at the depth of every issue then only we can come to realise what is real. Go and experience then only believe.

Google’s admission that it had in 2014 inadvertently coded the 112 distress number and the UIDAI helpline number into its setup wizard for Android devices triggered another controversy on Saturday as India’s telecom regulator had only recommended the use of 112 as an emergency number in April 2015.

After a large section of smartphone users in India saw a toll-free helpline number of UIDAI saved in their phone-books by default, Google issued a statement, saying its “internal review revealed that in 2014, the then UIDAI helpline number and the 112 distress helpline number were inadvertently coded into the SetUp wizard of the Android release given to OEMs for use in India and has remained there since”.

However, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) recommended only in April 2015 that the number 112 be adopted as the single emergency number for the country.

According to Google, “since the numbers get listed on a user’s contact list, these get  transferred accordingly to the contacts on any new device”.

Google was yet to comment on the new development.

Meanwhile, French security expert that goes by the name of Elliot Alderson and has been at the core of the entire Aadhaar controversy, tweeted on Saturday: “I just found something interesting. I will probably do full disclosure tomorrow”.

“I’m digging into the code of the @Google SetupWizard app and I found that”.

“As far as I can see this object is not used in the current code, so there is no implications. This is just a poor coding practice in term of security,” he further tweeted.

On Friday, both the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) as well as the telecom operators washed their hand of the issue.

While the telecom industry denied any role in the strange incident, the UIDAI said that he strange incident, the UIDAI said that some vested interests were trying to create “unwarranted confusion” in the public and clarified that it had not asked any manufacturer or telecom service provider to provide any such facility.

Twitter was abuzz with the new development after a huge uproar due to Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Chairman R.S. Sharma’s open Aadhaar challenge to critics and hackers.

Ethical hackers exposed at least 14 personal details of the TRAI Chairman, including mobile numbers, home address, date of birth, PAN number and voter ID among others. (IANS)
