Murder of catechist in Orissa stirs new fears of Hindu violence
CWN - December 16, 2011
The killing of a prominent Christian activist in India's troubled Orissa state has roused new fears of violence as the Christmas season approaches.
Rabindra Parichaa, a touring Catholic catechist, was found dead on Friday morning, December 16. He was the 3rd Christian leader killed this year in Kandhamal, the region where anti-Christian violence exploded in August 2008. And the murder stirs memories of the Christmas-time violence in 2007, when Hindu radicals torched Christian homes and churches.
