    • MAURITIUS, April 10, 2010: What was to be a big concert in Triolet to mark Mauritius’ Independence celebration anniversary was, surprisingly, just a mere tactic to lure Hindus to Christianity, reports the Hindu Common Front. The Light Ministries of Mauritius, a Christian Federation representing the several Protestant and Pentecost Churches of the island, invited Johnny Lever — a famous Bollywood star — as chief guest to entertain the audience at Triolet, a well known locality mostly populated by Hindus.

      What annoyed many Hindus attending the concert was that other than seeing Johnny Lever performing as a comedian, which he is usually in Bollywwod films, the latter was mainly involved in Christian prayers on the stage. The Voice of Hindu deplored that Johnny Lever was there to purposely convert the crowd and many Hindus were disappointed by his performance. This led to a serious a incident where the concert had to be immediately stopped due to angry reactions from Hindus of the locality.
