A big revelation has been brought to light regarding the ongoing mass conversion in Fatepur district of Uttar Pradesh. According to reports, foreign funds of more than 60 crore rupees have been received from America, Canada, London, and Pakistan for the mass conversion.
At a speech in front of critics, board member of the university, Dr. Isaac Frank, presented documents of foreign financing from 72 accounts of various banks related to the conversion. He also revealed that crores of rupees were taken from abroad by the Chancellor, Vice-Chancellor, and Managing Director of Naini Agricultural University in Allahabad for spreading Christianity.
The crores of rupees received were used for opening Jesus Courts in different cities such as Mirzapur, Roorkee, Bangalore, Lucknow’s Mohanlalganj, Etawah, Ajmer, and New York in America.
Investigations and Notices Issued to Christian Organizations
Investigations into the alleged conversions of Dalits and the poor in Fatehpur district took a new turn when police issued notices to a British-era missionary hospital, an NGO, and the Evangelical Church of India. The notices were issued to the chairman of Broadwell Christian Hospital, a clerk working since 1909, an employee of the Fatehpur office of the NGO World Vision International (WVI), and the bishop of the Evangelical Church of India in Prayagraj.
This was the second notice issued to Broadwell Hospital; officials were previously asked to join the probe and share documents under Section 91 of the CrPC in December.
Similar actions were also taken against Paul Sigamoni, chancellor, vice-chancellor, and administrative officer of Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences (SHUATS), a prominent Christian institute in Prayagraj, and senior pastor of Allahabad Bible.
Conversion of 90 Hindus
Media reports state that prayers were stopped after Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) activists entered a church in Fatehpur’s Hariharganj area, alleging their involvement in the conversion of 90 Hindus.
Since early 2022, three police stations in Fatehpur have registered at least seven FIRs and made dozens of arrests. Police action was taken based on complaints by VHP and Bajrang Dal where it was alleged that Christian groups or individuals are trying to convert Hindus by force or money.
