    Christians in India Hit with Beatings, Official Opposition, Discrimination
    April 3, 2015 | Filed under: Featured,Persecution,World | By: Editor

    [​IMG]NEW DELHI (Morning Star News) A rash of anti-Christian attacks this month hit Haryana state in northern India, where a new chief minister spoke against Christians and 45 were severely beaten at a burial service.
    A mob of more than 700 Hindu extremists on March 6 assaulted the 45 Christians as they began burial rites for an elderly Christian woman at a cemetery in Faridabad.
    “The Christians were beaten very severely as the mob targeted the Christians individually,” the Rev. Virendar Kumar of Bethenia Church told Morning Star News. “Each and every Christian was being beaten up by 10-12 people from the mob. Around 35-plus Christians are hospitalized in different hospitals in Faridabad. Some are seriously injured.”

    RANAGHAT, INDIA—
    Days after the rape of a 71-year-old nun, the vandalizing of a chapel, and the looting of money at a missionary school in eastern India, authorities there say they believe that robbery was not the primary motive of the attackers.
    Some Christian organizations say the attack on the Convent of Jesus and Mary School in Nadia district, 80 kilometers northeast of Kolkata, was part of an ongoing anti-Christian hate campaign across India.
    A gang of at least seven men entered the school during the early hours Saturday, tied up its security guard and forced their way into the rooms where three nuns, including the 71-year-old Sister Superior, were sleeping.
    After the gang fled the scene, it was discovered that the Sister Superior lay bleeding after apparently being raped. It also was found that the men had looted cash and some other valuables from the school and desecrated some holy items in the convent chapel.

    Days after Indian Police Torture Christians, Hindu Extremists Attack in Madhya Pradesh
    March 10, 2015 | Filed under: Featured,Law & Government,Persecution,World | By: Editor

    [​IMG]NEW DELHI (Morning Star News) Days after police tortured 20 Christians in India’s northwestern state of Rajasthan, Hindu extremists in Madhya Pradesh struck two churches in four days.
    In central India’s Madhya Pradesh, where a law against forced or fraudulent conversions is routinely invoked to harass Christians – though none has ever been found guilty – members of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal on Wednesday (March 4) stormed into a prayer meeting at a private residence at Haldad, near Julwania in Barwani District, with a contingent of police officers.
    After the Hindu extremists accused pastor Lal Singh and Indram Chauhan of fraudulently converting poor tribal people, the officers arrested the two Christians.
    “The Hindu group members caught hold of Pastor Lal Singh and Indram Chauhan, manhandled them and passed them over to the police, after creating much disturbance in the area,” pastor Anar Singh told Morning Star News.

    It does look like Christians treat Hindu's in the USA a lot better then Christians are treated in India.

    If these incidents are true, they are terrible and the criminals should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law; but it's not more or less terrible than when abuse happens to people of any faith; they have full access to recourse under the independent judicial system same as anyone else.

    In all of India's history as a civilization, there was never once an incident of a state power mandating discrimination against Christians.

    The Catholic Church has a vested interest in eradicating Hinduism but the opposite isn't true because Hinduism doesn't have any doctrine for proselytizing foreigners, nor does it mandate a uniform, immutable set of rules to guarantee salvation or damnation or whatever so the tendency has been for Hindus not to care what other people believe so long as they keep their beliefs to their own faith community.
    Clergy are not evil people, they just happen to believe this is how to bring others to salvation and if you genuinely believe that, then it's easy to justify being underhanded in reporting to achieve that ends.

    Kind of doubt the Catholic Church has a goal of eradicating Hinduism, though am sure some of them think everyone should be Catholics, but that includes Methodist, Baptist, 7 day Adventist, Presbyterians, Hindu's Communist, and Jews as well as Muslims. Don't think they are still killing anyone over it. No Catholic or Christian Mobs running around killing people that I know of.

    Plz stop this propaganda Mr. AA. It's an act of violence by a bunch of illiterate scums. They do not represent the Indian mass. And if you are so much concerned about Christianity then why don't you talk about the Christians in Pakistan/Iraq/Syria??

    It's a small incident of a people just getting injured. But in there, they get bombed to death.

    And your country is not also devoid of such acts of violence. Still we try to live peacefully with every other faith/religion. Be it Islam or Christianity or any other foreign faith.
