CWN Editor's Note: Anti-Christian violence in India reached an all-time high in 2021, with 486 episodes recorded in the year, the United Christian Forum reports.

The acts of violence peaked toward the end of the year, with 180 incidents recorded in the last three months, with a flurry of attacks just before Christmas.

The violence was attributable almost exclusively to Hindu nationalist mobs.
