India: court sentences Hindu marauders for anti-Christian violence in Orissa

November 29, 2012

A court in India has sentenced 12 Hindu militants to prison terms in connection with the anti-Christian violence that broke out in the state of Orissa in 2008.

“It is the first step toward justice,” remarked Archbishop John Barwa of Cuttack-Bhubaneswar. He added that much more action is necessary to heal the wounds opened by the violence, including the provision of compensation to Christians whose homes were destroyed.
