Christian evangelism has been tightening its grip on southern states of Bharat in general and Andhra Pradesh in particular where both public servants and politicians have often been caught promoting Christianity. Those in position of authority are forbidden to propagate a particular religion, especially while on duty, both by law and constitution. However, time and again this law has been violated.
The latest violation took place in Guntur district where a police constable was caught preaching Christianity while on duty. It has come to light that police constable TG Vara Prasad was preaching Christianity, while still in uniform, at a service event for migrant labourers on 21st May. He has been suspended from duty for this violation.

Earlier too a complaint was lodged against Guntur District Collector Samuel Anand for promoting Christianity through bias in government job appointments. Anand had openly admitted at a public function that 6000 Christians were given government jobs in Guntur district alone in blatant violation of the Central Civil Services (Conduct) Rules, 1964.
Proselytization on duty is a serious offence that needs to be taken cognisance of and strict action must be taken so that it serves as an example for all.
