Unfortunately in India the sunshine of intellectual inquiry (or more appropriately the intellectual mob) can fall only on the hapless Hindu thought and culture; with very few Hindus present to actually defend her.
I am not sure that intellectual exposure is the best way to beat them back though. The root of Christism's power in India is western money. Money is what they use to buy goodies to entrap the unfortunate, money is what helps them pay the Indian 'priests' (no hesitation using scary quotes here - most of these people are lazy free loaders looking to make a quick buck) - money is what everyone congeals around.

The existing law may be used to beat back this threat. I quote from the constitution.

(1) Subject to public order, morality and health and to the other provisions of this Part, all persons are equally entitled to freedom of conscience and the right freely to profess, practise and propagate religion.
(2) Nothing in this article shall affect the operation of any existing law or prevent the State from making any law—
(a) regulating or restricting any economic, financial, political or other secular activity which may be associated with religious practice;

It is the first exception we must exploit. Restrict and regulate the flow of funds and you take away the majority of their power. This has already happened to Hindu temples where the state has taken over the governance and receipts of donations etc. The state should take over their money too.

Combine this with an idea which that brilliant reader, Shahryar expounded. A "no win no fees" basis of litigation against the Church. It works simply as follows - I convert to Christianity and then hire a lawyer to sue the Church for money claiming mental anguish at not finding Jesus (as promised by them) and also that my wife left me because I converted. The lawyer gets to keep a share of the winnings from the case if I win - if I lose my lawyer gets nothing.

Now you will say - what if I consistently lose? The great Indian gift of graft and venality comes into play here. Fix the system so that everyone - judges, court-clerks, sundry legal 'pimps' all get to share in the loot. Pile up those cases high with Hindu activists converting and suing (the flip side of Teesta Activism). It is their wealth we must destroy - take away their money and everything goes with it.

conciliation (saam), money (daam), punishment & fines (dand) and creating splits or rift (bheda) - we must use all instruments available to us!!!
