Pictures and news from Nepal after the massive earthquake shocked people across the globe, but amidst all these chaos, tragedies and cry, Christian Missionaries were busy selling Jesus and Christianity. It was more shocking because many of these individuals and organizations are influential and they reach many people via social media and other channels. One of the most disturbing messages common in many tweets was stress on Christ and Christianity by pointing out the helplessness of other religions like Hinduism and Islam.

These scavengers pose a far more serious threat than what we can anticipate. These tweets can’t be ignored with the assumption that these may spread hatred. If neglected, these people will not only demean the efforts of organizations and governments working for people, but they will opportunistically romanticize sufferings of people for their malicious gain.
