The Indian government arrested fifteen Christians for worshipping Christ during the New Year’s celebration. This is just another example of Hindu tyranny against Christians. Here is the report:
According to the report:
Persecution watchdog groups are speaking out against the arrest of 15 Christians celebrating New Year’s through prayer at a parish in the Indian state of Karnataka, where they were surrounded by a radical Hindu mob.
Sajan K George, president of the Global Council of Indian Christians, said that the Christian minority “is vulnerable and subjected to harassment and persecution by both extremist as well as authorities, who are responsible for protecting citizens. Clearly, Christians are considered second-class citizens in secular India.”
AsiaNews reported on Monday that the incident occurred at the parish of bannur Jodukatte Puttur on New Year’s Eve, where police stormed the Protestant church and arrested the 15 Christian worshipers as a means to “protect” them from a mob of Hindu radicals that had gathered outside.
The Christian celebration had reportedly attracted the attention of two Hindu extremist ultranationalist groups, the Bajrang Dal and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, who had in mind to raid the church and stop the ceremony, before police intervened.
While the arrested Christians were released a few hours after they were taken to the nearest police station, they were warned against proselytizing, and told that they must always alert the authorities before any prayer services or celebrations.
