Conversion from one religion to another has been a thorny issue throughout the history of the Indian subcontinent. Recently the controversy over conversion has received new life, given a number of events which in effect resulted in a great deal of debate over the place of Christians within the State of India. Perhaps the two most recent controversial events were the gruesome murder of Rev. Staines and his two children in orissa and the visit of the Pope to India.
