India denies the persecution of Christians


Last Tuesday, the Indian government denied any persecution of Christians in the country, despite dozens of reports proving otherwise. For a government run mainly by radical Hindu fanatics, such denials bear little weight.


As thousands of reports and news stories have shown, the reality continues to worsen for the Christian community that is targeted by extremist ideology from the Hindutva movement.

Attacks against Churches, threats and intimidation of Christians, social boycotts, beatings, and arbitrary arrests have become far too normal for Christian minorities.

Week after week, organizations around the globe report on the dozens of attacks against Christians throughout India – and rather than address the grave human rights abuses occurring within its own country, the Indian government seems more interested in maintaining a public image that tells of a harmonious, tolerant society.
