During the Nepal Earthquakes and its aftermath, the Indian Govt, the Indian Armed Forces rushed to help.. Other neighbors including China, Pakistan and other countries have jumped in to help. There is a massive rescue operation that is currently going on in Nepal.
But what I have started noticing is the PR campaign by christian evangelicals organizations starting their spin…
“Nearly 5,000 Schools Have Been Destroyed In Nepal. Here’s Who’s Helping”.
Really? World Vision? WOW! Their PR is really at work here.
They did the same during the Tsunami of Asia.. All these evangelical organizations did was Photo ops so they can use such tragedy to collect more monies And also for the purpose of converting othersto create religious tensions, while ululating the battle cry of “Onward christian soldiers…”.
Convert Or Starve
