Tumakuru: A complaint has been filed against Christian missionaries for distributing books similar to the Bhagavad Gita for religious conversion.


The complaint was lodged by the Karnataka unit of Bajrang Dal in Tumakuru city and Kora police stations of Tumakuru district in Karnataka. According to police, missionaries have taken up a huge drive in Tumakuru aiming at converting Hindus to Christianity.

Incidents of distribution and selling of books resembling the Bhagavad Gita have come to light in various parts of the district, the Bajrang Dal said.

In the book, Hindu Gods and Goddesses are insulted. It also says Baba Adam is equal to Brahma, Mahadev, and Mohammad and that Adinath, revered by Jains, has taken birth as Baba Adam, the book claims.

It also claims that Baba Adam came from the planet of Brahma and is the reincarnation of Lord Brahma.


Bajrang Dal has alleged that the distribution and selling of the book titled ‘Geetheye Ninna Jnana Amruta’ in the Kannada language has been taken up aggressively. People from other states have come to Tumakuru and carried out missionary work.

The books are being printed by Kabir Printing Press in New Delhi. The complaint has also been submitted to the Superintendent of Police in Tumakuru district to stop forces which are operating with an intention.

Further investigation is on.
