Hindu attack on church in India
July 22, 2014
Armed with hammers and hockey sticks, Hindu fanatics attacked a Protestant church near Bulandshahr, a city in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.
After assaulting the pastor and others who were taking part in a Bible study, the assailants climbed on the church’s roof, destroyed the cross, and raised a Hindu flag.
Sajan George, president of the Global Council of Indian Christians, told AsiaNews that “the situation in Uttar Pradesh is alarming. The tiny Christian community that lives here is very vulnerable to attacks, which are never provoked, from Hindu fundamentalists.”
