Fundamentally Wrong

On the 9th Feb. I blogged about Rony Tan, the Christian pastor here in Singapore who got into trouble for denigrating Buddhism and Taoism. Unfortunately, this sort of thing is often associated with fundamentalist churches. Have a look at this three part documentary (about 20 minutes altogether) about the form it is taking in those parts of rural India that are being ‘targeted’ by such organizations. I would be a bit cautious about one or two things said by the politician being interviewed (the Congress Party controlled by foreigners!) but other than that the claims being made are generally accurate. Similar things are taking place in Buddhist countries too.
