I am writing this to underscore the fact that I/NGOS and foreign donors have been doing amazing jobs in the various parts of Nepal.
However, it is intellectually-depressing that some of the foreigners who come to Nepal through such noble projects tend to fulfil their ulterior motives by proselytising people in the rustic part of Nepal who are not scientifically literate.
I am deeply concerned for the fact that in the name of religious freedom institutions or people can’t bait the innocence of intellectually disabled people by means of theological enlistment or recruitment. I think in the free society let people to make their own independent choices for who they are.
We have been noticing the ground reality that within the Hindu society there is a profound influence of Christian missionaries who have been systematically uprooting the local religions and making the regions ideological-colonies. This is a deployment of theological humbled- troops for the ideological-warfare in the poverty-stricken nations. The religious freedom is the greatest tool to invade the innocence minds of millions. I would say when someone is insisting on someone to believe or subscribe their pattern of beliefs by pseudo-motives then that requires the government’s intervention for the further scrutiny.
It is not nice to cajole with them in order for hijacking their emotional intelligence. The culture of outfoxing the telescopic philanthropy by giving an inch to take an eel must be ended. There should be unconditional love and supports for the humanitarian issue.
The sorrow and misery of people are not the theological breeding grounds or the nurseries for any religion to sprout up on peoples’ bad time.
