Hindu seers calls for halt to conversions

source: Outlook India, September 23, 2008

A delegation of pontiffs of various mutts in Karnataka today called for a halt to forcible conversion of people and any one religion "interfering" with others.


Seers led by Pejawar Mutt pontiff Vishweshatheertha Swami called on Governor Rameshwar Thakur and submitted a memorandum, opposing conversion of people with allurements.

Later, addressing a press conference, the Seers said such conversions would vitiate peace and harmony.

They also condemned the attacks on churches and demanded a ban on distribution of pamphlets denigrating Hindu gods and acts that promote conversions.

Those who were part of the delegation were: Rahaveshwara Bharathi Swami of Ramachandrapura Mutt, Ramanand Swami of Kulya Ahram, Mangalore and Vajradayi Mutt seer Rajashekharan Swami.
