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.”

      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.

    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.

June 17, 2018:

Restaurateurs Prodyut and Sumana Mukherjee have not only brought Indian cuisine to the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2018 here but also plan to dish out free dinner to countrymen if Argentina wins the trophy on July 15.

Based in Moscow for the last 27 years, Prodyut and Sumana run two Indian eateries, “Talk Of The Town” and “Fusion Plaza”.

Both restaurants serve popular Indian dishes like butter chicken, kebabs and a varied vegetarian spread.

During the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2018, there will be 25 per cent discount for those who will possess a Fan ID (required to watch World Cup games).

There will also be gifts and contests on offers during matches in both the restaurants to celebrate the event.

The Mukherjees, hailing from Kolkata, are die-hard fans of Argentina. Despite Albiceleste drawing 1-1 with Iceland in their group opener with Lionel Messi failing to sparkle, they believe Jorge Sampaoli’s team can go the distance.

“I am an Argentina fan. I have booked tickets for a quarterfinal match, a semifinal and of course the final. If Argentina goes on to lift

“We have been waiting for this World Cup. Indians come in large numbers during the World Cup and we wanted these eateries to be a melting point,” he added.

According to Cutting Edge Events, FIFA’s official sales agency in India for the 2018 World Cup, India is amongst the top 10 countries in terms of number of match tickets bought.

Prodyut came to Moscow to study engineering and later started working for a pharmaceutical company here before trying his hand in business. Besides running the two restaurants with the help of his wife, he was into the distribution of pharmaceutical products.

“After Russia won the first match of the World Cup, the footfall has gone up considerably. The Indians are also flooding in after the 6-9 p.m. game. That is the time both my restaurants remain full,” Prodyut said.

There are also plans to rope in registered fan clubs of Latin American countries, who will throng the restaurants during matches and then follow it up with after-game parties till the wee hours.

“I did get in touch with some of the fan clubs I had prior idea about. They agreed to come over and celebrate the games at our joints. Those will be gala nights when both eateries will remain open all night for them to enjoy,” Prodyut said.

Watching the World Cup is a dream come true for the couple, Sumana said.

“We want to make the Indians who have come here to witness the spectacle and feel at home too. We always extend a helping hand and since we are from West Bengal, we make special dishes for those who come from Bengal,” she added. (IANS)
