CWN Editor's Note: Officials in the state of Madhya Pradesh closed down a Catholic college that served the poor, after Hindu nationalists complained that the school was designed to encourage conversions.

Archbishop Leo Cornelio of Bhopal spoke of “harassment against Christians and an anti-Christian atmosphere surrounding our mission.”
