On December 6th, 1993 on the pretext of constructing Rama Mandir, BJP created religious violence between Hindus and Muslims. Later under the veil of religion terrorist attacks were started. India quaked with bomb blasts. Thousands of people lost their lives. Millions were wounded. Many innocent women and nuns were raped. Thousands of churches and temples were destroyed. In this religious fanaticism Australian Missionary Graham Staines and his two sons were burnt alive on 22nd January, 1999. During the year 2002 Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat and in Orissa states experienced religious violence. Many pastors were murdered and raided blaming them for conversion. On February 27, 2002 in Gujarat near Godhra Railway Station, 56 passengers of Sabarmati Express were burnt to death by the miscreants. In the aftermath of this incident the angry Hindus massacred Muslims in the Municipal limits of Ahmedabad on 28th February 2002. They even killed an infant aged just 20 days and other older people, two young Muslim girls were raped and split the wombs of pregnant women and stabbed the foetuses.


In this massacre 94 people died and 1500 injured. These incidents haunted the mind of Dr.Ashok Kumar. His heart was filled with agony. Later he started searching answers of the following inhuman atrocities. In Latin "religo" means soothing or control to the broken hearted. That means removing the difference among color, caste, creed and nationality. In English language "religion" means reconstruction, which means reconstructing the broken hearts of scattered groups, divided churches etc. The religious principles which should see the welfare of the people and fill the people with peace and make them to live with joy and comfort were kept aside for political gains. The innocent people were being changed as religious fanatics, rowdies, criminals and as anti social elements under the guise of religion for their personal benefits. Ashok Kumar has a passion for Society and a burden towards the poor & needy. These are the kind of situations that caused extreme pain as thousands died by the eruption of communal violence. Religion means to show or teach moral values or human values and to enhance spirituality. He wanted to remove the differences such as caste, religion, nationality and color from the society.


Dr.I.C.Ashok Kumar wanted to prove that Christianity is not a religion but a way of life. Not only had that he desired to tell the world that Christians follow Christ's teachings especially "love thy neighbour as thyself." Based on this principle many Christian organisations are serving the humanity by providing education, medical and social service irrespective of caste, creed and religion.


Premasaakshi Foundation goal is to display the love of Jesus Christ for all mankind.
