"Christian Missionaries came to South Asia two thousand years ago. Christianity has therefore influenced the Indian subcontinent in many ways. Hinduism and other religions in this part of the world continue dialogue with Christian Missionaries and the culture and civilisation of South Asia has indeed become outgoing and global. While fanatics continue to defame humanity, dedicated missions have brought peace, prosperity and happiness to the suffering downtrodden millions in South Asia.
