During the typical week in India, there are ten incidents of anti-Christian violence, such as church burnings or attacks on clerics, The Guardian reported.
“There is a clear pattern of rising religious intolerance across the
Indian sub-continent, which affects many millions of Christians,” said
Lisa Pearce of Open Doors UK & Ireland, a group that advocates on
behalf of persecuted Christians.
“Religious nationalists attempt to forcibly convert people to the
dominant faith of their nation, often turning to violence when community
discrimination and non-violent oppression do not succeed in imposing
their religious beliefs on minority Christians,” she added.
The nation of 1.27 billion is 80% Hindu and 14% Muslim.
