Kiren Rijiju the Union Minister of State for Home Affairs tweeted about a disturbing fact and what has been a sad state of affairs for his home state.
Since 2001 Christian Population has grown at a humongous rate in this North-Eastern state.
In 2001 they were only 18.72% of the population, whereas in 2011 they are 30% of the population and the major religion in Arunachal. It has been possible only because of the mindboggling amount of money spent through the missionaries and Churches and their continuous patronage by Congress in the garb of fake ‘secularism’. The once minuscule population of less than 1% in 1971 has been able to build Asia’s biggest statue of Christ in their state to show their dominance.
Things heated up on Monday when congress attacked Rijiju by claiming that BJP is planning to convert Arunachal into a Hindu state.
They got a befitting reply from the Junior Union Minister. He said “Hindu population is reducing in India because Hindus never convert people. Minorities in India are flourishing unlike some other countries around”.
Rijiju posted screenshots of a news article to convey his message in the next tweet that people enjoy religious freedom in India and that Congress should not provoke people. AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi, the top Arabic stooge said that Rijiju was not a minister of Hindus but for all Indians. It’s a laughable statement coming from someone whose party has descended directly from Razakars who had raped and killed Hindu women.
A landmark research done by ‘Centre for Policy Studies’ shows that in 1971, there were only 3864 Christians in Arunchal Pradesh which has increased to 4,18,732 in 2011.
An overwhelming growth of more than 10,000%. in the last 40 years. This is a rate of conversion which even their Vatican bosses would never have imagined. Official data shows that the Christians were less than Buddhists till 1991, The Buddhists are now reduced to only a few districts. 2001 was a milestone year for conversion agents when they had crossed the indigenous Buddhist population in the state, in 2011 they had finally managed to reduce Hinduism to the 2nd place, with Christianity being the dominant force.
If we look deep in the research we find that most of the converted people belonged to the Scheduled Tribe community. The research points out that although Christians were 18.7% of the overall population in 2001 their share of ST population was 26.5%.
Keeping the trend of mass conversions by catholic missionaries they have now become 40% of the population. Jatinder K. Bajaj, a pioneer in research points to the fact that Christianity may even be higher than 40% in some Major ST communities since data for individual Scheduled Tribe communities based on religion is not available.
Critics may argue that Arunachal was never a Hindu majority state and Other Religions and Persuasions (ORPs) were always the majority there. But if you go through the statistics, even the (ORPs) also followed some kind of a ritual of the Sanatan Dharma just like Buddhists do and there was never any problem for the tribal people to simultaneously mix with their Hindu brethren. The power of Sanatan Dharma is to allow every individual to follow their own path and not keep itself unbending like Abrahamic conservatism which spreads hate among converted people about their past religious beliefs.
There are still 26% ORPs are there in the state down from the once majority 63%. If we don’t take check the conversions rampant in the state, Arunachal – this ever so unique North-eastern state will lose its indigenous culture forever.
