Two Christian places of worship attacked by mob in India
On Sunday, the 7th of February, two Christian places of worship were attacked by a mob in India.
In both instances, the nationalists stormed the worship services, beat the Christians, and falsely accused the leaders of violating the state’s new anti-conversion law. The mob was composed of a hundred radical nationalists.
Local Christians suspect the mob members were associated with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), a Hindu nationalist organisation, because of the saffron scarves worn by members of the mob.
After the attack, the police detained several Christians in both places and inquired if they were forced to attend the worship service.
