HJS files complaint against conversion by Missionary

Mumbai: A Christian missionary and organizer named Sunil Samuel Kelvin had organised a program for conversion of faith, in the name of healing incurable diseases through miracles, at Mahakavi Kalidas Natyamandir, Mumbai on the 6 th November at 5 p.m. For this purpose, he had also published handbills containing objectionable advertisements.

In accordance with a complaint filed with the Mulund Police Station by Shri. Kashiram Parab, Convener of the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS), on the 5th November, 2006, the police have registered a cognizable offence under the 'Drug and Magic Remedies Act (Objectionable Advertisements) 1954'. Sunil Kelvin, the Christian missionary, had published handbills containing objectionable and illegal information under the title 'Live in the Spirit'.

He had made an indirect plot to convert the poor through these handbills by making claims about curing incurable diseases. The surprising fact is that the handbill did not have names of the printer, publisher and the organisation. Taking notice of this fact, the HJS filed a written complaint against the organisers, at the Mulund Police Station.

Accordingly, the Mulund Police interrogated Sunil Samuel Kelvin, the organizer of the program. The police have registered a cognizable offence against Kelvin under the 'Drug and Magic Remedies Act (Objectionable Advertisements) 1954'.

This case has been a second success story for the HJS' mission. In a similar case that occurred in January 2006 at Vasai Road, Father John Matthew had claimed to cure incurable diseases by miracles through prayers. At that time, after being warned by the HJS about conducting agitations, the police arrested Father John Matthew and stopped his program. The HJS appeals to all Hindus to be alert and fight against fake Christian missionaries through constitutional means.
