Violence against Orissa Christians Spreads

Ad Feedback

CWN.com - In India, attacks against Christians continue to spread.

Radical Hindus have destroyed scores of churches in southeastern Orissa state since late August. They've also burned thousands of Christian homes, killed at least 25 Christians, and forced 22,000 to flee their homes.

Now the violence has jumped across the country to the western state of Karnataka. This week Hindu mobs destroyed 11 churches there.

Radicals blame the murder of a prominent Hindu priest on Christians, but say communists are to blame.

Christian World News recently spoke with Sajan George of the Global Council of Indian Christians about the situation.
