Indian: Christian pastors assaulted--then arrested
Catholic World News - June 30, 2011
Two Christian pastors were assaulted by Hindu militants, then arrested by local police, after being accused of forcing Hindus to accept the Christian faith. The Global Council of Indian Christians protested the “complicity between extremists and the government” in Karnataka, a region that has been troubled by frequent attacks on Christians and unsympathetic responses from police.
