Expressions of Christianity with a Focus on India
Though claiming to act from and for “the love of
Jesus,” Christianity has brought suffering and destruction to
individuals, communities and cultures in almost every region of the world. This collection of papers by Indian and foreign scholars, which spans two millennia and includes Europe, America, Asia and Australia, does not focus on Christianity’s teachings or theology, but on its actual expressions in the world. http://www.indiaclub.com /shop/searchresults.asp?ProdStock=23599
Challenge of Religious Conversion and Hindu Response by Dr Subramanian Swamy
January 3, 2006
Excerpted from the address of The Chief Guest at the Anniversary Celebration of Arsha Vidya Gurukulam
Religious conversion of Hindus is threatening individuals, families, communities and the nation. Coercive religious conversion of Hindus contains a threat to spiritual tradition and the freedom of choice. If carried unchecked, coercive religious conversion would threaten the very existence of India as a nation.

Breaking India: Western Interventions in Dravidian and Dalit Faultlines by Rajiv Malhotra and Aravinda Neelakandan. Amaryllis. 640p.
Of the three global networks that have well-established operating bases inside India and undermining its integrity is the Dravidian and Dalit identity separatism being fostered by the West in the name of human rights. This book focuses on role of U.S. and European churches, academics, think-tanks, foundations, government and human rights groups in fostering separation of the identities of Dravidian and Dalit communities from the rest of India. The book is the result of five years of research, and uses information obtained in the West about foreign funding of these Indian-based activities. The research tracked the money trails that start out claiming to be for “education,” “human rights,” “empowerment training,” and “leadership training,” but end up in programs designed to produce angry youths who feel disenfranchised from Indian identity.
The book reveals how outdated racial theories continue to provide academic frameworks and fuel the rhetoric that can trigger civil wars and genocides in developing countries. The Dravidian movement’s 200-year history has such origins. Its latest manifestation is the “Dravidian Christianity” movement that fabricates a political and cultural history to exploit old fault lines. The book explicitly names individuals and institutions, including prominent Western ones and their Indian affiliates. Its goal is to spark an honest debate on the extent to which human rights and other “empowerment” projects are cover-ups for these nefarious activities.
