Dear Lisa

In the name of charity many rich organizations go to poor countries and convert people to other religions. If the real aim is charity, why these organizations create conflicts by trying to propagate religions.Whether it is a Muslim, Catholic or Hindu organization it is wrong that they go to poor and help them in return expecting that these people will change their religion.This is the reason I like Buddhism and Janism as they do not have any strings when they help poor. I remember the Eye Donating society in Sri Lanka was the first to establish an Eye Bank of the world and send eyes freely to more than 120 countries of the world.

In the past Muslims,Hindus,Catholics invade the countries and by force made people convert to other religions.Now they are coming as charity just to convert others. If you donate then there should be no strings according to Jainism and and especially according to Buddhism as it is a sin more than a charity if you are expecting something in return.

Please read about that.
