How did Unitarians end up in India?
From the mid-1800’s until independence in 1947, India was ruled by the United Kingdom. Among many other things that happened during the British Raj, missionaries came to India and attempted to convert its people to Christianity. I would say this was not a particularly successful endeavor, but let’s keep moving to Unitarianism specifically. In the 1880’s, Khasi Hajjom Kissor Singh was disappointed in the local Christian missionaries. He had many questions about and qualms with their doctrines. In Kolkata, he established a relationship with a Unitarian missionary, and, agreeing with the religion’s tenets, brought Unitarianism back to Meghalaya. Since then, there has been a thriving Unitarian community within the Khasi tribe.
