#Verier_Elwin variously described as ethnologist, anthropologist, tribal activist was a First Rate Christian Missionary.
Incidentally, he was awarded a #PadmaBhushan by Nehru, for his “work” among tribals in India.
His only work was Conversions on the sly. He later moved to NE.
This old newspaper clipping is the Truth about Elwin.
A blue eyed boy, he signed an agreement with Nehru which named entry of Sadhus in Nagaland !
Nagaland had just 20% Christians in 1947 which rose to 97% in the latest Census.
Entire NE was left to this Missionary by Nehru.
At 38 years he married a 13 year old #Raj_Gond girl who was his student in 1940 !
Had a son in 1941, child of 14 giving birth a another Child !
This PERVERT was given a #PadmaBhushan.
Got an ex_parte divorce, poor Child that Girl #Kosi was still living in 2006.
