DARJEELING, INDIA, March 13, 2001: The West Bengal Government has withdrawn orders on furnishing details on conversion following strong exception to it from the State Minorities Commission. The matter was taken up with the authorities after the Darjeeling district intelligence branch issued a circular asking for monthly reports on the number of persons converted to Christianity. This article continues with accounts of openly available conversion schemes (www.bethany.com/profile) and statistics. Government recommendations include withdrawal of proselytizing missionaries and prohibition of "quid pro quo"-style medical services -- referred to as the "patients in one end, Christians out the other" style of missionary hospital management.
