While every modern educated civilized community in the modern world of shrinking resources have recognised the value of planning small families and restrict to having two children, evangelist Churches with a single-minded view of increasing Christian population in India by conversions have now resorted to incentivise Christians to have more than four children by providing free delivery facilities and monthly financial allowances to raise children.

Evangelist churches have never hidden their mission to convert Hindus to Christianity in India. They in fact even used the raging pandemic as a boon to increase their conversion rate by converting nearly one lakh Hindus and setting up 50,000 churches in the past one year. The evangelists even boasted the conversion rate was highest during the pandemic than in the past 25 years. The Church always uses social welfare schemes and so-called social service as a means to convert marginalised sections of Hindu society to Christianity. They even use intimidatory tactics when their numbers grow substantially to put pressure on the resisting Hindus to convert to Christianity.

Now a Catholic church in central Kerala has announced a financial aid scheme for Christian families having five or more children, to increase Christian population in the State. Notably, Hindus are a minority in several districts of Kerala, where the North Malabar area is a den of Islamists and many other areas are Christian dominated.

Family Apostolate under the Pala diocese of the Syro-Malabar Church, in Kerala has launched a scheme to offer a monthly financial assistance of Rs 1,500 to the couples who got married after 2000 and have five or more children.

Women delivering their fourth child delivery onwards would be provided free delivery care at a hospital run by the Church.

The Church would also provide free education and scholarships at colleges run by the Church. Free education would be provided to children of these Christians who produce children in large numbers in the Church run engineering college.

This move has evoked an outrage among netizens and public at large and is being called out for the communal attitude of the Church to multiply the Christian population in a secular country. Pastor Joseph Kuttiankul who heads the Family apostolate Church claims that the birth rate of Christian population is going down in the state and this move is aimed to increase the Christian population in Kerala.

Pertinently, recently the most populous state of India Uttar Pradesh government under Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath came up with a draft policy proposing to dis-incentivise those with more than two children by baring them from availing government benefits like subsidies, scholarships to help curb exponential population growth putting pressure on precious state resources. Soon the so-called rights activists along with evangelists and Islamists bodies started criticising the move as being inhuman.

With Church now openly doling out funds to produce five or more children Hindu organisations’ fears have been proved right about the sinister plan to overwhelm Hindu population by rampant conversions and increased birth rates.

While the Islamist policy to overwhelm Hindus with fraudulent conversions with tools like Sex Jihad and threats along with extremely high birth rate by exploiting the exclusive rights to have four wives at a time in a secular nation is only too self evident.

Last but not the least, the Hindu community cannot even leverage its Mandir funds to run free schools and hospitals to poor Hindus and generate jobs for Hindus like the Christians or the Muslims as all the main resource generating Temples have been taken over by governments across party lines. The governments helps itself to Temple funds for funding Maulvis, Madrasas, Pastors and Christian convents while giving zilch to Vedapatshalas or Mandir Priests!
