`He is coming only to pray for people'

By Our Staff Reporter

BANGALORE, JAN. 17. The organisers of the `Festival of Blessings' have said that evangelist Benny Hinn was coming to India only to pray for the people and that he was not on a crusade.

At a press conference today, the members of the organising committee said the programme was not an exercise at conversion.

"This meeting is to pray for peace and welfare of people of all religions. We do not believe in invading another religion," said Gul Kripalani, national chairman, `Festival of Blessings.' Over 60 per cent of the people who attended Mr. Hinn's prayer in Mumbai last year were not Christians.

Mr. Kripalani said Mr. Hinn did not have any healing powers. "He only prays for the sick; he does not guarantee any healing."
