CWN Editor's Note: The northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh (map) is 80% Hindu and 19% Muslim; only 0.2% of its population is Christian. “Dalit women are discriminated against threefold: for their caste status, for gender, and for the different economic treatment they receive at work,” said Bishop Sarat Chandra Nayak of Berhampur. “Christian Dalits are also persecuted for their faith.”
