It is not unknown that Christian Missionaries mainly target Janajatiya areas for their conversion project. Many such areas of North-Eastern Bharat are already fully converted. But, now an organisation backed by ISKCON is taking important steps at ground level that can stop the conversion mafias.
‘India Tribal Care Trust’, an NGO, has been building schools in Janjatiya dominated areas of North-Eastern states. The organisation has been opening free coaching centres also. In those schools, small children are given books, education, dharmic traditions and clothing, all free.
Till now, ISKCON backed ‘Tribal Care Trust’ has build 200 schools in remote area of North-Eastern states with around 4, 300 students are studying currently, according to Radharaman Das Prabhu. And interestingly, many such school has hostel facility attached. In the hostel, children from poor families stay there, receive education, all free.
As the villages are situated in remote hill areas, surrounded by forests, very few schools are there. Janajatiya people remained deprived from better education and other facilities. Taking that as an advantage, Christian Missionaries run their campaign to convert them. Christian Missionaries are targeting the new generation to convert by simply offering them free education. To get better education facilities, poor Janajatiyas are sending their children to those missionary run schools. But, for the past many years, no dharmik organisation cared for them. But now, ISKCON is there on the ground.
But, in the last few years, India Tribal Care Trust, backed by ISKCON, has been building ‘Pathshala’ in Janjatiya dominated areas of North-Eastern states like Assam and Tripura. Small children are receiving free education in a dharmic atmosphere. They are also given clothes and other facilities. This initiative could prevent the tribal children from falling in the trap of the Christian Missionaries, hope many.
Recently, two renowned Sadhus from ISKCON, Radharaman Das Prabhu and Amogh Lila Das went to visit those dharmic schools. They visited several such schools, situated among forests and hill areas. Such schools can fight against the conversion of Christian Missionaries, hoped Amogh Lila Das Prabhu.
