India: police thwart Hindu plot to vandalize Catholic cathedral

Catholic World News - March 12, 2010

Police in Satna, in central India, stopped a group of about 60 Hindu militants that was seeking to enter the city's cathedral of St. Vincent on March 12. The group, which was protesting alleged attempts by Christians to convert Hindus, had burned effigies in the street outside the cathedral, and was marching inside, chanting slogans, when stopped by police. Father Joseph Kodakalil, the rector of the cathedral, said that officials had advised him not to appear outside the building. "We feel relieved since no untoward incident has happened," he said.
