New Delhi — Christian missionaries are identified among the five biggest enemies of Hindus: that is what is said in a pamphlet distributed at World Hindu Congress 2014 which took place this week in Delhi. According to the literature, other "sworn enemies of Hindus" are Islam, Marxism, materialism, and "Macaulayism."

These concepts, expression of Hindutva ideology found space during the Congress, given the massive presence of militants and radical organizations.

"The combination of forces and anti-Hindus is weakening Indian society" is what is said and therefore the faithful are invited to counter the cultural system in force. The pamphlet defines Islam "poisonous" criticizes the cultural and religious pluralism and the approach of Christian missionaries who "wickedly introduce the value system of their own western societies."

World Hindu Congress in 2014 was attended by over 1,500 delegates from 40 countries.
