07/02/2013 INDIA - TIBET
The Tibetan leader warns against proselytism, the problems that arise between different religious communities and recommends no conversions. The murder of missionary Graham Staines and massacres in Orissa and Karnataka taken as an example of negative fruits of conversions. Jesuit priest: Graham Staines was not proselytizing; Orissa in the fight against Dalits has social roots. Cardinal Gracias freedom to preach, propagate the faith and convert is guaranteed by the Indian Constitution. You can not compromise a principle so fundamental out of fear or for convenience.
