CHRISTIAN PASTOR ASSAULTED, FORCES TO CHANT ‘JAI SHRI RAM’


New Delhi: On 25th Feb 2022 an anti-Christian vigilante group of RSS thrashed, humiliated a Pastor and forced him to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’ accusing him of carrying out religious conversions “forcibly”. Any religion other than Hinduism has become a liability in Modi’s India. Vicious Hindutva ideology, seeking Hindu domination in India, is the chief guiding principle for BJP-led Indian government. Under the patronage of Indian government, Hindu terrorists threat and kill Christians and vandalize their places of worship with sheer impunity. Anti-Christian vigilantes are sweeping through villages, storming churches, burning Christian literature, attacking schools and assaulting worshipers. As a result, Indian Christians are forced to hide their faith or perform religious services in secrecy. Almost 300 million Indian Christians are the target of Hindu-terrorism. The world must act now to halt Christian persecution; otherwise, another genocide is underway and this time Indian Christians will be the target. According to a report by human rights groups, more than 300 attacks on Christians took place in first nine months of 2021, including at least 32 in Karnataka. The report found that of the total 305 incidents of anti-Christian violence, four North Indian states registered as many as 169 of them: 66 in BJP-ruled Uttar Pradesh, 47 in Congress-ruled Chhattisgarh, 30 in tribal-dominated Jharkhand, and 30 in BJP-ruled Madhya Pradesh. US Commission on International Religious Freedom recommended that India be put on its red list for “severe violations of religious freedom”. Government officials and non-state actors continue to use social media and other forms of communication to harass & spread hatred disinformation against minority communities, including Muslims, Christians, and Dalits.
