However, radical Hindu groups such as the VHP accuse Christian missionaries of forcibly converting poor Hindus in rural areas - a charge Church leaders strongly deny

Cannot believe such thing. Yes there are intolerant closed minded Christians, but no I cannot believe a Christian preaching love of all, and forcing people to convert. Perhaps making it attractive to convert by providing financial aids.

I don't know, I really cannot say. I think anyone is capable of violence, and I hate it especially when it is done using the garb of religion. I wouldn't want to share the guilt of absolving someone else's act of violence.

IF you see the (bitter) rivalry between opposing sections of India's oldest Eastern Orthodox groups,you will think that the usual Catholic-protestant tiff is child's play.One group owes alliegiance to the Patriach at Antioch,while a breakaway faction has now installed a 'Metropolitan' based in India as their head.There have been more than 1 violent clash & court disputes for control of massive wealth owned by the community.Come to think of it,many of these folks are descendents of Christians who came from Syria ages ago!!
