11. Kesalingayapalle, Andhra Pradesh – The Only Hindu Village
Kesalingayapalle village of Andhra Pradesh’s Kadapa district is a “Hindus only” village. This decision was taken after some Christian evangelists came to their village last year and lured some of their villagers to Christianity on the pretext that they would be cured of their physical ailments if they pray to Jesus.
According to villagers, if a person converts into other religion, it amounts to changing one’s own mother.
Any attempt by anybody from other religions to enter the village to campaign or preach their respective religions is strictly prohibited. If anybody violates this norm, strong action would be initiated against them by the villagers of Kesalingayapalle.
