Abscence of Level Playing field in Battle of Religious Conversion

This front page article in Mumbai Mirror reinforces my arguments regarding, why Christian missionaries have unfair advantage over their Hindu counterpart(here). Funds received by Christian Missionaries can be utilised for setting up Hospitals,School and colleges and support to weaker sections, tribals and dalits.State or Union Govt has no control on these funds. They can be then motivated to convert to Christianity. Hindu temples Trusts receiving crores in donations from Hindu devotees, have to give money at the dictate of the State govt to organisations controlled by Politicians. Nothing is spent to set up Schools,Hospitals etc. as done by Christian Missionaries.Besides there is no Transparency and Hindu Temple Trusts have donated money to propagate other religion's causes. In such situation how can anyone propagate Hindu religion?.--PK
