While the US decries “religious freedom” in China, she has turned completely away from India, which as Shoebat.com has reported for years, as seen continual increases in violence so that India is now one of the top ten most violent and unstable places for Christians in the world. We have noted that this is part of a long-term program against Christianity with the purpose being eventually to do to Christians what the National Socialists did to numerous groups in Germany, and that is to identify, round up, concentrate into one area, and exterminate Christians in the name of pagan nationalism. As we have noted in the past, the plan seems to be to do this under the cover of a major world war when the major western powers are not looking and therefore are not concerned with what India may do.
The result is that while the world is focused on the state of Christians in China, the Christians of India are suffering just as severely, and they have almost nobody to advocate for them.
In another round o violence, coming from the evil Hindu nationalist group Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), is ordering that all churches in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh be closed by the government or else the group will start engaging in acts of violence.
As part of Hindu nationalists’ ongoing campaign to stop India’s tribal, or indigenous, people from converting to Christianity, a rightwing Hindu leader has demanded that all churches be closed down in a district in the central state of Madhya Pradesh.
Azad Prem Singh, a leader of the Hindu nationalist group the Vishwa Hindu Parishad or the World Hindu Council, handed over a memorandum to the administrative head of Jhabua district, demanding that all churches be banned in tribal areas, the U.S.-based persecution watchdog International Christian Concern reported Sunday.
Singh claimed that Christians were fraudulently mass-converting people to Christianity. “In the past 70 years, Christian missionaries have converted gullible indigenous people to Christianity and built churches specifically on protected tribal land,” Singh claimed. “All the illegally built churches should be shut down immediately and action should be taken against all priests and pastors involved in the process.”
In the Jan. 11 memorandum, Singh gave the local government 30 days to meet his demands, threatening to use violence to stop church activities.
In March 2004, anti-Christian violence broke out in Jhabua district, where tribals constitute 85% of the population.
Last November, a group called Janajati Suraksha Manch (Tribal Security Forum) in eastern Odisha state wrote to India Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Ram Nath Kovind, urging them to exclude converted tribal people from availing reservations in educational institutions and government and public-sector jobs as well as other protections that the country’s constitution provides for.
“Maintain your religion, culture and traditions,” Megha Oraon, an official of Janajati Suraksha Manch, was quoted as saying at the time. “Those who are taking benefits reserved for scheduled tribes from other religions should be stopped and a law should be enacted to stop people taking advantage.” (source)
