Anti-Christian vandalism, attack in Karnataka
Catholic World News - January 03, 2012
Three incidents of anti-Christian violence have taken place during the Christmas season in Mangalore, a city of nearly 500,000 in the southwestern Indian state of Karnataka.
On Christmas Day, 15 people attacked members of a Protestant church as they were dining. Three days later, an outdoor Nativity scene at a Catholic parish was burned, and a dozen people threw stones at a Protestant prayer hall, breaking its windows. Hindu extremists are suspected in the attacks.
