Abstract:According to both the English Indian Press and the claims of some scholars and analysts, the incidence of violence on the part of Hindus against the Muslim and Christian communities in India has increased substantially since the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came to power in 1998. Some of this violence has been aimed at Christian missionaries and missionary activity. A common perception is that such violence is perpetrated largely by groups linked to the Sangh Parivar, and that the violence is a reaction to questionable methods of proselytization. The contention of this thesis is two-fold: that objection to conversion is not confined to the Sangh Parivar, and that the objection is not simply to questionable means of proselytization, but to the idea of conversion per se. Further, I will argue that the antipathy to conversion is driven by a vision of India that essentially defines proselytization minimally as an act of destabilization and maximally as an act of violence.
