Dalits denied fellowship dining in Karnataka cultural festival

Alva's Nudisiri, the seventh annual literary and cultural convention organised by Alva's Education Foundation was mired by controversy on Sunday after various Dalit groups charged the organisers with practising casteism and lodged a complaint with the Commissioner of Police.

Christians can Change this World:Dr Peter Hammond |

If God can change you, then God can use you to change some part of this world. That our fallen world needs changing is beyond question. When our newspapers and films glamorize immorality, undermine traditional family values and encourage selfishness, greed and lust; when criminals escape justice by legal technicalities; when half of the world suffers under totalitarian dictatorships and persecution; when pornography, perversion, abortions, terrorism and the occult are increasing - then we know that this world needs to be changed. But most Christians have abandoned their moral responsibility to bring the light of the Gospel into heathen darkness. Many Christians are allowing their own children to be brought up by godless humanism in state schools and entertained by occultism and pagan magic through Hollywood films and television.
