A delegation of Rashtriya Isai Maha Sangh (RIMS) members lead by Fr Anand Muttungal met the Law Minister PC Sharma at his residence on Thursday.
Fr Muttugnal said the Minister has agreed to withdraw the false cases of conversion slapped against Christians. We briefed him that the Bharatiya Janatha Party led Government in Madhya Pradesh has persecuted Christians in the name of conversion to take revenge because they believe that Christians are supporters of the Congress Party.
He said even though many cases have been registered, not even one incident has been proved in the court of law. The BJP and other fundamental organisations believe that Christians and all those who benefit from the works of the Christians too will support the Congress Party. So, they used all means to stop Christian works in the State.”
RIMS’ spokesperson Richard James said there havebeen about 264 cases in Madya Pradesh during the long 15 years of rule in the State. The fundamental organisation, supporting the BJP, has taken help from the police and administration to persecute Christians working in the fields of social work, education and religious activities. They have used power to defame Christians and stop the works done for the poor.
State Secretary in charge of RIMS Office Mohit Ratre said, “We are writing letters to all the victims, office bearers of RIMS and in-charges of various Churches to help the victims to avail the benefits of the Government.”
