India: Christian women arrested on ‘forced conversion’ charges

August 22, 2014

Four Christian women who were distributing religious leaflets have been arrested on “forced conversion” charges in the southwestern Indian state of Karnataka.

The four were subsequently released.

Sajan George, the president of the Global Council of Indian Christians, called the arrests “a matter of serious concern, because not only did they target innocent faithful, but are likely to tear the fabric of society,” according to an AsiaNews report. “The Hindu nationalist forces want to spread a feeling of suspicion towards Christians.”
