Sunday Shalom, a widely circulated weekly Christian news paper recently surprised many with their editorial titled “Narendra Modi as Servant of God.” The national media and the Modi supporters were quick to cash in on this opportunity to herald this as an ultimate approval which could wash away the sins of Godhra riots and instill a glowing hallow around the newly elected PM. Many Christians too were caught off guard reading the ‘Servant of God’ claim and wondered whether it was clever opportunism at work to get into the good books of Narendra Modi. To uphold a Christian vision is a challenge in a highly secularized world and to make people understand the real sense is a herculean task especially when vested interests are working hard to turn anything and everything in their favour.
A Christian Response! Not a Political Response!
