October 01, 2013

Hindu fundamentalists have attacked two Christian churches in the southwestern Indian state of Karnataka, according to the Global Council of Indian Christians.

In Tiptur, a city of 80,000, radicals burned down a new church on the night of September 28.

Earlier that day, in Belur, a town of 9,000 with an historic Hindu temple, 20 Hindu radicals stormed into a church during a prayer service and “began to destroy everything that they could lay their hands upon,” the organization reported. “They tore the Bibles, broke the crosses, and destroyed the church instruments.”
