CONVINCED CHRISTIAN-COMMITTED MISSIONARY
Having joined the Catholic community, Devasahayam Pillai himself started exhorting others to receive Baptism and even converted some to Christian faith, one of them being his own wife and continued leading others to Christ. Because of his newly found faith he disregarded caste distinction. Noticing the marked changes in Devasahayam Pillai after his conversion, the high caste people accused him of the crime of betrayal and contempt of religious practices and of insult of gods, of the Brahmins and the royal throne.
