“JESUS CHRIST lived in India for 15 years, was buried in Kashmir and learnt his lessons of love and non-violence from reading Buddhism,” claimed RSS Sarsanghchalak K S Sudarshan on Sunday.
Addressing a tribal congregation organised by the Vanvasi Kalyan Kendra at Bargaon village in Dindori district, situated about 90 km from Jabalpur, the RSS chief claimed that Jesus had come to India when he was 12 and returned when he was 27.
“Christian evangelists should know that what Jesus Christ preached, he had learnt during his 15-year stay in India,” Sudarshan averred. The function was held to mark the birth centenary of second RSS Sarsanghchalak M S Golwalkar. Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan was also present at the function.
Yet another claim that Sudarshan made at the gathering was that Christ die not die on the Cross. “He (Jesus) was only injured and after treatment returned to India where he actually died. His grave still exists in a place called Isha Nagar in Kashmir.”
Cautioning tribals against Christian evangelists, Sudarshan said Christianity considered every one a sinner by birth. ‘‘Can God send a newborn to the world as a sinner,” he asked?
Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said he had given more teeth to the anti conversion law in the State to ensure that no one converted to another faith due to allurement, fraud and coercion. He said that the State was committed to ensuring strict action against cow slaughter.
He also said that the State Government was popularising Sanskrit language and a Sanskrit University would be opened in Ujjain shortly. The state government will bear half of the expenditure for Kailash Mansarovar pilgrimage, Chouhan said.
