Clash over church land leaves 21 Christians injured

Twenty-one followers of the Methodist Church were injured during a clash with Hindu believers. The clash started when the Hindu group attacked the Christians over a land dispute.

On February 13, violence broke out when a group of Hindus attacked Christians over a land dispute in Janwada village, Telangana state, southern India.

Twenty-one of the Christians who belong to the Methodist Church were injured. Twelve of them were sent to the hospital. Three are still in critical condition.

The clash was probably because the Christians were agitated by attempts to appropriate church land for road building.

The police are still investigating the case, but no arrests have been made. Bishop M. A. Daniel, head of the Methodist Church in India, visited the injured in the hospital and reassured them of their support.
