Orissa: violence against Christians becoming commonplace
Catholic World News - September 27, 2010
After Hindu militants burst into a Protestant church in the Karnataka region of India’s violence-marred Orissa state, and assaulted the pastor, local police arrived on the scene—and arrested the pastor who had been the victim of the violent assault.
Episodes of anti-Christian violence have become commonplace in Karnataka. Members of the Christian minority charge that local officials are indifferent to their suffering. The state government is controlled by the Hindu-nationalist BJP party.
