UP: Bajrang Dal burns Santa’s effigies over alleged religious conversions

Agra: Accusing Christian missionaries of using the Christmas festival as an opportunity to spread Christianity by resorting to a gift-distribution spree through Santa Claus to attract children and the poor towards their religion, some Hindu outfits on Saturday burnt effigies of the mythical character.

The activists of Hindu outfits Antarrashtriya Hindu Parishad and Rashtriya Bajrang Dal burnt effigies of Santa Claus, also known as Father Christmas or Saint Nicholas outside St John’s College on M G Road and various schools in the city.

“As December comes, the Christian missionaries become active in the name of Christmas, Santa Claus and New Year. They allure children by making Santa Claus distribute gifts to them and attract them towards Christianity,” regional general secretary Ajju Chauhan of the Rashtriya Bajrang Dal alleged.

The outfit’s other member Avtar Singh Gill claimed, “We will keep an eye on the missionaries who visit slums and convert Hindus to Christianity. The members would also act strictly against them.”
