Here is the Swami's contention:
What is surprising is the insistence that the prayer is, “a universal one,” the very “same one,” recited at the sittings of the National Assembly. This is a blatant untruth. Two significant changes, inclusion of “heavenly father,” and “amen” the signature ending of Christian prayers, which are not the National Assembly so-called universal version, were sneaked in. Clearly, not the “same one” used in the assembly. Why those responsible for perpetrating this mischief have chosen to ignore the changes and repeat the lie is known only to themselves, but the changes, especially the first one, “heavenly father,” are critical from a purely Christian theological perspective and simply cannot be swept away by this deception. It is also clear that both the decision to Christianise the prayer and the decision to exclude others were intentional. It is for this reason that we feel that attempts now being made to pass off it as “the universal prayer” doubles the insult to those who have been so ignored and marginalised.
