Christian missionaries under the banner of ‘Elijah’ have launched massive campaigns across villages of Punjab to convert the poor Sikhs of the area. Generally, the Sikhs in scattered villages have little knowledge of the faith their born into and so are easy converts for Christians. The ‘Elijah’ trust have openly stated that they were able to convert 170 of the 260 people that showed up to their ‘healing’ and free food event at village Pandian of Nawanshar District.
Volunteers of the trust tell the vulnerable Sikhs that their pains will go away if they convert to Christianity. These Sikhs know little to nothing about Sikhi and go where ever it seems feasible.
After converting, the missionaries establish fellowships to encourage the converts to convert their friends and families in other villages.
