India: Hindu radicals threaten Catholic school

Catholic World News - July 14, 2011

Police in Khargone, a city of nearly 100,000 in the central Indian state of Madya Pradesh, are protecting St. Jude's Higher Secondary School following threats from Hindu radicals.

With their Catholic schools in India attract non-Catholic students because of their reputation for high educational quality. When a Hindu was denied admission to the school because all seats had been filled, radical Hindu youth broke into the headmaster’s office and threatened him. Blasting the school for not having a portrait of the goddess Saraswati, the radicals then tried to disrupt the school’s activities over the course of a week.
