To: Dr. John Dayal, secretary general, All India Christian Council and Member,
Dear Dr. John Dayal:
I was going through your interview responses to senior journalist Shri Sai Prasan.
Please read the following news. Such events are daily routines in all the states, but except BJP ruled states, no where they are arrested. They get state protection from our 'secular bone' CMs and hence people often take law in to their hand.
As leader of Christian community, you are requested to keep your house in order before blaming Sangh Parivar. Please note that Mr. Prabhod Kumar Das is no 'Sanghi' and hence he registered a case as opposed to Sanghis would do under these circumstances.
3 held for forceful conversion 5 Jan 2009, 0147 hrs IST, TNN Print Email Discuss Share Save Comment Text: Bangalore: Tension prevailed for some time near HAL airport police station after a group of people approached the police and handed over three persons, who allegedly tried to convert others into a particular religion.
The three persons, including a couple, were later arrested by the police on charges of proselytism. Books and pamphlets used in the activity were also recovered from them. Two other persons who worked with the three are absconding.
The arrested persons are Rama Reddy (26) from Nanjareddy Colony, who came from Andhra Pradesh, Micoh Barbosa (35) and his wife Asmira Barbosa. Police said the crowd brought them from Murugeshpalya, where they allegedly tried to perform a conversion.
Micoh Barbaras is a native of Karwar and resident of Rajanakunte. The three were arrested on a complaint filed by Prabhod Kumar Das from Murageshpalya. He works in a private company.
According to police, the three visited Das' house for the past one week and persuaded him to change his religion. Das is a native of Orissa. Police said they also gave books and other reading material to Das.
On Sunday, the three came to Das' house while he was with a relative. Then Das went out and called some people from the colony and asked the three about their intention, after which the three spilled the beans.
In the complaint, Das stated that the accused were involved in "denigration of Hindu gods". The complaint also stated that the three persons promised him money and a job if he agreed to convert.
The three are in custody and will be taken to a court on Monday.
