Re: Demand for recognition of Adivasi religion in the national census.
I personally support Home Coming as coming back to their ancestral culture.. whether they worship krishna or rama or jesus, they should not be deprived of their ancestral god and their ancestral culture..
Now coming back to the main issue, please clarify your stand on what you consider on conversion of tribals to christianity? Do you feel, that a systematic attack on tribals by missionaries?
Next, i would like you to clarify on your stand on Tribals being projected as animists or pagans by western media and missionaries? Do you feel, they are also a systematic attack on tribal religion?
You have often termed tribal as separate religion.. On my reference, i found that as per the constitution, the tribals are classified as separate religion .. I will correct myself on my earlier assertion that tribals are part of hinduism..
I also remember, that the tribals also worship Goddess (Devi or ammans).. and they are also nature worshippers, which is also highly relevant to hinduism..
