The persecution of Christians has increased fourfold in Asia during the past decade, according to an ecumenical organization. The rise in hostility has been most pronounced in India.
Gospel for Asia, which that monitors the work of a variety of Christian groups, said that "persecution has become the norm" in most Asian countries. K.P. Yohannan, the president of Gospel for Asia, said that Christians who have not experienced persecution "cannot fully understand what it means."
