Hindus who go to church in India are threatened to be beaten by nationalist leader
According to the Union of Catholic Asian News (UCAN), the leader of a radical Hindu nationalist group has threatened to attack any Hindu who visits a church during the Christmas season.
On the 3rd of December, Mithun Nath, leader of the Bajrang Dal in the Cachar district of Assam, threatened to have his group attack any Hindu found visiting churches during the Christmas season.
“Hindus will be beaten up,” Nath said addressing a public gathering. “I condemn such Hindus. They need to be taught a lesson. No Hindus will be allowed to visit churches. If anyone does, Bajrang Dal will give its reply.”
The threats issued by Nath drew strong criticism from Christian leaders. These leaders claim such threats will only divide India’s religious communities.
