Gujarat, January 10, 2018: Christianity has destroyed the world’s environment, this according to the latest anti-Christian provocation by a right-wing Hindu radical in India.

S Gurumurthy, a member of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh RSS), a Hindu ultra-nationalist paramilitary organisation, made the claim at a Hindu fair in Ahmedabad, Gujarat.

From a stage he railed against the Christian religion, which he deems responsible for environmental destruction because it has no “reverence for nature”.

The Hindu fair was held from 5 to 8 January and was organised by the Hindu Spiritual and Service Foundation (HSSF). In total, 315 Hindu organisations came together. So far, 24 similar gatherings have been held in 13 Indian states. The one in Ahmedabad was the first in Gujarat.

Speaking at the event, Gurumurthy said that Hinduism stresses conservation, saving the environment for posterity, and even teaching compassion towards wildlife. The Hindu civilisation is the only one that teaches mankind to live together despite differences.

“We have a culture in which even the wildlife is worshipped and importance is given to the conservation of nature. In my village, nobody cuts the tree when even a single woman is pregnant. It is a way of linking our lives with nature.”

Over the years, all major Orthodox, Catholic, Protestant and Anglican organisations have come together to encourage the 2.2 billion Christians in the world to pray and act on ecological issues.
