Tamilnadu—A Play Ground For Christianity And Islam

 

Dear Friends,

Jai Hind!

Subject: Tamilnadu—A Play Ground For Christianity And Islam

We had the other day sent you a mail on “Christianity In Andhra Pradesh“.

Scrutinising the Census data of 2011, the Centre For Policy Studies in Chennai, has analysed the situation in Tamilnadu on the growth pattern of Christianity and Islam. We have put that as “Tamilnadu- A Play Ground For Christianity and Islam.”

The following table tells the story based on cold facts.

The picture is clear.

1) Both the Christians and Muslims have registered growth between 2001 and 2010;

2) Christians and Muslims have. both grown at a rate faster than the Hindus between 2001 and 2011;

3) Between the two, The Christians have grown faster than the Muslims.

Well, taken as a whole, we have been watching a victory march of the Christians in India that had started soon after independence. This has been true in the south as a whole in recent times.

And, the north east is already lost –thanks to Nehru.

Well, we do not know whether we will witness any tussle between these non-Hindu religions, in India.

Good or bad, our feeling is the power that be ought to find out the fundamental reasons behind the victory march of Christianity in India. Francis Pope in his visit to India in 2009 had said this would be their world now”. May be that has encouraged the Christian friends, who want to fulfill his dream in India.

Our past experience tells us it is mass conversion in tribal areas. Many among the poorer sections of the OBCs will also fall in this category. The Intelligence Bureau has a significant role to play in this respect.

The Centre For Policy Studies has indicated the security vulnerability arising from concentration of certain non-Hindu components of the population in some parts of India. This has happened on the field. The State Jammu and Kashmir is an example. Should we like, for the sake of argument, a heavy concentration of Muslims in West Bengal? Or, would we like more Muslim population in areas in Rajasthan, bordering Pakistan? We are already witnessing what has been happening in the recently created State of Telengana. The Muslims are in minority there. But, they have succeeded in getting Urdu as the second official language.

Well, Friends, this is how we have read the last religion data report of the Centre For Policy Studies, Chennai Studies.
