Annie Wood Besant (1847-1933)

“Make no mistake, without Hinduism, India has no future. Hinduism is the soil into which India's roots are stuck and torn out of that she will inevitably wither as a tree torn out from its place. And if Hindus do not maintain Hinduism who shall save it? If India's own children do not cling to her faith who shall guard it. India alone can save India and India and Hinduism are one. "

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) has initiated Ghar Waapasi to welcome back those Hindus who took a wrong path by the deception, allurement, and force of Christian missionaries for centuries. Many Hindu organizations have been trying to raise the awareness of the potential danger to the Hindu community, Hindu Temples and Hindu samskaras with no success.  Although many Hindu activists are doing many things, their efforts have not infiltrated into the villages where the conversion is taking place on a large scale. As Hindus concentrate on their intellectual endeavors, Christians are concentrating on conversion. It is time for all the intellectuals and activists to pause for a few minutes and look at the ground realities. Our intellectual endeavors and activists’ protests are not reaching the villages where conversion is rampant. We cannot ignore or turn away from what is happening on the ground. Centuries of our efforts have not produced desired results in increasing the Hindu population. Hence GHHF initiated Ghar Waapasi.

Why GHHF initiated Ghar Waapasi?

1. Dwindling Hindu Population: As per the 2011 Census, Christians constituted only 1.4 percent in Andhra Pradesh. Relentless conversion efforts over the last 8 years have yielded a bumper crop. On May 20, 2020, the AP government recognized the Christian population at 18 percent. But the actual percentage of Christians is likely to be around 30 %. Why such discrepancy? With Muslim Population at 10%, there are only about 60% Hindus in Andhra Pradesh.

  1. Christian Populations is purposefully under-reported and suppressed. Pastors instruct their converts not to reveal their faith to reap the benefits of being Dalits. Also, to make Hindus believe that their numbers are not a threat to their Faith. They are like termites working underground to collapse the Hindu edifice.
  2. Churches are being built with no permits. Illegal construction of Churches all across Andhra Pradesh is happening over the years. We all know how many churches are built with no morals, no scruples, all across Andhra Pradesh and India without even permission from the authorities. Even in Tirupati, they built more than 50 churches without permission either from the Collector’s office or other authorities. TTD should request the District Collectors to demolish those churches that are built without permission. In fact, TTD should make every effort to ensure the sanctity of Tirupati by declaring 50 Kilometer radius is Punya Kshetra where no other religion would be allowed to practice similar to Mecca and the Vatican. If you cannot build a Hindu Temple in Mecca and Vatican, why would you allow the Mosques and Churches built in Tirupati?
  3. For Christian Pastors, it is a business. More Hindus they convert, the more money they get from foreign countries and from converted Hindus who are required to pay 10% of their income. They find people who are experiencing financial problems, health problems, admission to educational institutions, and lack of education. They exploit them to the fullest. How can an illiterate person change his religion overnight unless he is lured with incentives or by force?

               Many Converted Christians from Hinduism are asked not to report their newly embraced Christianity to ensure no reaction will be forthcoming from Hindus. They are supposed to hide their religion. For the last 8 months we are able to employ 11 Pracharaks in 7 locations to engage in Ghar Waapasi to welcome back those Hindus who were duped to get converted. Our Pracharaks will meet with these converted Christians and talk about the richness of Sanatana Dharma and discuss about the differences between Hinduism and Christianity.

               Every day, we are updating our Ghar Waapasi activities in Facebook, WhatsApp groups, Telegram, Twitter, LinkedIn and text messages. But we have not sending the emails highlighting our activities. Realizing that many people are not able to access the information, we decided to send emails once every week or two weeks so that you would know what is happening on the ground level. Here are some examples of our activities in different locations at the ground level

1. GHHF Ghar Waapasi in Anantapur District – Stopped one Colony becoming Christian.

There are about 200 families in Vadde Colony in Kalyandurgh Village. Christians belonging to different denominations area roaming around the Colony visiting families and promising all kinds of things to get them converted to Christianity. Realizing that one of the families did not have children, the Christians were promising Children once they get converted to Christianity, attend Church regularly and have full faith in Jesus. Because of their intense desire to have children, they decided to embrace Christianity.

One of the Colony members approached our Global Hindu Heritage Foundation Pracharak Sri Gopi Charya Swamy and asked our people to prevent the family from being converted to Christianity. Once one Family is converted in the colony, they fear that the Christians will slowly deceptively convert as many Hindus as possible. Sri Gopi Chary Swamy went to the colony and met with a number of colony residents along with the family desiring to convert to Christianity. Sri Gopi Chary talked to them about the importance of our culture, our scriptures, the richness of our dharma, and recommended certain Homas which will fulfill their desire to have children. He mentioned that he will do a number of Pujas and Homas such as Ganesh Puja and Homa, Navagraha Homa, Subramanya Homa, Mrutyunjaya Homa, Rama Taraka Homa and Santana Gopala Krishna Homa. The couple agreed and participated in performing these Homas near Anjaneya Temple in the Colony. GHHF did not request any money for any of these homas performed.

Lastly, the Couple performed Kalyanotsvam sitting personally to get their desire fulfilled. About 80 family members in the colony attended the function and they all agreed to keep an eye on the Christian activities in the colony and try to prevent them from conversion tactics. We thank Sri Gopi Chary Swamy and three Pracharaks who repelled the aggressive Christian missionary activities.

2. GHHF Ghar Waapasi in Two Districts in Telangana Welcomed 68 Families back to Hinduism

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) in association with Nitya Satyam has been organizing Ghar Waapasi in the Telangana area. Lakshmi Nivas and his associates visited Komaram Bheem District and Manchiryala District; and talked about the tactics they used in converting people and how they induce people to convert to Christianity. Many converts expressed their own experience of being pressured into accepting Christianity and how they created fear in them.

He talked about the difference between Bhagavad Gita and Bible. As Frederich Nietzsche stated that Christianity from the beginning forced their sheep to sacrifice their freedom, pride, and self-confidence. We say they sacrificed their freedom means that they have no freedom to express, debate, discuss and dialogue what is written in the Bible. You cannot even ask a simple question saying that why did Jesus make all human beings’ sinners for the mistake made by Adam and Eve. Why they have to be sinners for something they have not done. Why would Jesus make them burn eternally in hell for not accepting Jesus? You cannot ask why Jesus declares himself as a jealous God. How can you believe and trust a jealous God? Even children would be more tolerant than Jesus. All Christians are deprived of their freedom to ask the pastor any questions they may have.

 

The Christian missionaries come prepared to even engage in violence and threaten the Hindus to accept Christianity. Christianity practiced in India is an insult to humanity. It is the most violent, ridiculous, and bloody religion ever infected the earth. Even the Christians across the globe admit the missionary wickedness and vicious methods they use to convert the natives into Christianity. They cut your throat and or force the people to accept their customs and opinions. They make the converts insult Hindu Gods by stepping on them or spitting on them.

Laxmi Nivas and his Associates went to many houses talked to them individually, distributed the flyers, and met Hindus who were converted to Christianity. Many of them are receptive to hear what we are trying to say and started reading about what is happening in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

GHHF has prepared a 4-page document talking about the rights of Hindus to face the ruthless Christian missionaries and also showing some of the ex-Christian’s experience of being a Christian.

3. GHHF Ghar Waapasi near Tadepalli Village in Guntur District 20 Families returned to Hinduism.

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) is incredibly happy to organize the Ghar Waapasi program in Guntur District. About 20 families out of 40 came back to the Hindu fold. They live very close to the highway near Tadepalli village. Our Associate Srinivas and his friends came to know that many Hindu women were converted a few years ago and they are looking for a way out. He spent a lot of time talking to them and was able to convince these families to return to Sanatana Dharma. Some of them agreed.

About 20 families used to go to Hosanna Ministries for the last 5-7 years. Since we Hindus do not approach them to visit the Temples or ask them to practice Dharma, the Christian Missionaries had all the opportunity to talk to them and denounce the Hindu way of life and Hindu Gods and were successful in converting many of these people. Since some of them were converted through deception and anti-Hindu statements, slowly almost all of 40 families got converted and were attending the Church. Our associate Srinivas was able to convince 20 families to return to their mother faith – Hinduism. He is trying to welcome the rest of the families into Hinduism. Let us pray he would be successful.

They were given literature explaining the difference between Hinduism and Christianity. As Gore Vidal observed that the Orthodox Christians forced their beliefs even on non-believing liberal Christians and forced their superstitions on all of them. He observed the believers of monotheism are the most dangerous people who infected many countries with their hatred, violence, and terror. "The great unmentionable evil at the center of our culture is monotheism," Gore Vidal asserted, “From a barbaric Bronze Age text known as the Old Testament three anti-human religions have evolved – Judaism, Christianity and Islam. These are sky-god religions.” He said that the Church was and is a powerful force influencing science and politics. They opposed many social, scientific advancements for more than 2000 years. They opposed gay marriages, same-sex couples, contraception, and abortion. The Christians want to control your mind and body.

Many priests or pastors are cheats. Their livelihood depends on the number of conversions. They go to any extent to lie, cheat, and falsify our Hindu scriptures. It is a terrible religion. In fact, the Bible vividly described the atrocities, killings, dashing the children against the wall, and stoning to death if you disobey. Even if you have performed your duty as per your customs, the Bible encourages wiping out the whole nation. They were persecuted and tortured unto death. Bible is full of fabrications, contradictions, revengeful and atrocious.

GHHF is committed to engaging in Ghar Waapasi by giving utmost importance to welcome the converted Christians back to Hindus who may have drifted away for different reasons without full comprehension. This is the only way to bring back those who took the wrong path for different reasons.

4. GHHF Ghar Waapasi in Pakala Mandalam near Tirupati - 12 Families were welcomed back to Hinduism

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation has organized the Ghar Waapasi program in Ramireddy Palli Village in Pakala Mandalam. Mandalam and talked to them about our efforts to welcome back to the Hindu field those who converted to Christianity. Our Associates K. Reddappa and K. Subbanna have been actively involved in visiting a number of villages in various villages and Mandalas in Chittoor District. They distributed a 4-page document containing the rights of Hindus to encounter Christians and how to stop the construction of illegal churches.

They were able to convince 12 families to return to Hinduism. They were honored with Upper garment for men and Blouse pieces for women along with God’s pictures, the Hanuman flag, and other items.

As Humbolt mentioned that Bhagavad Gita is the only true philosophical treatise in the world. And perhaps the loftiest t and deepest thing in the world. Krishna cajoles Arjuna, “Nothing is higher than a war against evil. A warrior such as you should be pleased with such a war, as it leads to heaven.” Krishna‘s discourses are described in the eighteen chapters of the Bhagavad Gita. At the end of his discourses, Krishna successfully convinces Arjuna to fight the battle of Kurukshetra only to eliminate adharma – evil. Unrighteousness, deception, and cruelty. Compare Bhagavad Gita to Bible which Thomas Paine stated that that the Bible teaches us to rape, cruelty, and murder. In fact, Bible sanctions the rape: Judges 19:24-25; “Here is my virgin daughter and his concubine. Please let me bring them out that you may ravish them and do to them whatever you wish. But do not commit such an act of folly against this man.”

As many of you are aware that the Christians are moving into the sacred city of Tirupati and its periphery in the Chittoor District. They are planning to start converting within a radius of 50 kilometers. Christians are moving into this area to convert as many people as possible to make Tirupati a sacrilegious place instead of keeping it as a sacred place.

Although many Hindu activists are doing many things, their efforts have not infiltrated into the villages where the conversion is taking place on a large scale. As Hindus concentrate on their intellectual endeavors, Christians are concentrating on conversion. It is time for all the intellectuals and activists to pause for a few minutes and look at the ground realities. Our intellectual endeavors and activists’ protests are not reaching the villages where conversion is rampant. We cannot ignore or turn away from what is happening on the ground.

5. GHHF Ghar Waapasi in Vishakhapatnam Agency Area; 65 Families Welcomed back to Hinduism.

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation has organized the Ghar Waapasi program in Vishakhapatnam are and talked to them about our efforts to welcome back to the Hindu field those who converted to Christianity. Sri Sai Datta Manasa Swamy and his associates met with villagers in the Agency area and talked about the Vedas and scientific nature as well as our rich cultural heritage, have been actively involved in visiting a number of villages in various villages. They distributed a 4-page document containing the rights of Hindus to encounter Christians and how to stop the construction of illegal churches.

In his lectures, Swamiji talked about the greatness of Rama Nama and asked all those who reconverted to Hinduism to chant so loudly that their voice should be heard in Ayodhya. He said he was happy to invite 95 families back to Hinduism. He asked all of them to participate in Puja. He mentioned conducting Sri Rama Navami every year for more than ten years and this year we will have more people attend the function.

What is PUJA?

As you can see in the pictures about 65 families participated and performed Puja to Lord Rama. Many of us are unaware of the meaning and significance of Puja. Pooja is defined as "honor, worship, reverence, veneration, homage to superiors or adoration of the gods."(Monier-Williams).

Pujas maybe performed for different purposes. First, an individual may pray his Ishtadevata (God of one’s liking) for some blessing such as the health of the family member, good education, suitable spouse or promotion. Second, an individual may perform puja for the fulfillment of a vow (for example, one may take a vow that he will do puja if he gets a job, better grade, or desired partner). Third, one may perform puja regularly to a deity with whom one has entered into a relationship. Fourth, one may perform puja as an act of devotion on certain occasions and at different life stages. Fifth, one is performed for Loka Kalyanam (for human welfare).

He explained that every religion has idols, and they remember them when they worship. We Hindus acknowledge the greatness of the images of all Gods, we remember their energy, power and how they served as our role models, and how they protected us from evil forces. No society will function without images, signs, and symbols. How can Christians worship without the image of Jesus on the Cross when they talk about him? If they do not believe in Idols and images, why do Muslims pray in the direction of Mecca.

He addressed to hundreds of Hindus as well as Converted Christians. He mentioned that we should not be attracted to the false propaganda of Christians whose mission is to convert. If you refuse to convert, whatever they say about doing service to the community disappears. Their only motive is to convert. Their survival depends on the number of people they convert. Sri Swamiji is interested in doing two things. One is to make sure Hindus will not be trapped and the second is to welcome back those that left Hinduism.

Scholars and intellectuals understand the depth of Hindu dharma. Pastors and Christians in India are unintelligent and live in the dark side of Christianity. Christianity is a sick house and dungeon In fact, most of the churches are deceptive and cunning. They are based on no substance, no depth of knowledge, and no reasoning. The Pastors would not allow the members to even question or seek clarification because churches are built for doing business, not to impart the knowledge useful for worthy living. They create havoc in the community, sow seeds of disunity and division in the family and create enmity in the village. The Pastors keep pestering these Converts to donate 10% of their meager income and rob their income. Since Christian Pastors and Nuns target illiterate people, not only they do not know how to read but they have no idea about even examining what is written. It is filled with savagery, sin, sex, killing, creating division, and eternal burning in the fire.

6. [GHHF] Ghar Waapasi - First Time in East Godavari District. Formed a Women Volunteer Group

Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) is very happy to announce that we are able to expand our Ghar Waapasi program to three more places starting April 1, 2021:

Vijayawada,

East Godavari, and

Anantapur.

As many of you are aware that in East Godavari District, many fishermen families have been converted to Christianity. Many of them are realizing that they have made a wrong decision. Mr. Kollu Srinivas Raju who has been working in the fisherman community for a number of years, who have challenged the construction of new Churches and who has written letters to Mandal Revenue Officer (MRO), District Revenue Officer (DRO), and District Collector to stop the Sunday Christian sermons on the loudspeakers as per the Noise Pollution Act (2000) which specifies restrictions on the noise pollution. Now the Christian sermons were confined to their four walls in the area.

Since Srinivasa Raju is from the same area, he and his family members slowly start going to Christian families and talking about Hinduism and how it compares with Bible. You can see that he has distributed Kumkum Bharanis to the ladies who returned to Hinduism. And they have taken an oath that they will protect Hinduism, they will remain Hindus for the rest of their lives and encounter Christian deceptive practices.

Mr. Srinivasa Raju is distributing 4-page flyer and explaining the legal rights of Hindus to protect themselves from Christian aggression and has formed a WOMEN VOLUNTEER GROUP and asking them to go to the Christian families in the Villages to talk about the virtues of Hinduism and hateful passages from Bible.

We will keep updating the progress.
