More details on Indian attacks

World Vision office destroyed by Hindu attackers in OrissaChristian Today has more details on the attacks on Christians that occurred this week in Chhattisgarh, the neighboring state of Orissa.

Around 100 unknown attackers armed with lathis weapons (sticks) and petrol bombs attacked a prayer meeting led by Pastor Mohan C Thomas and Jose Kajur in Bothli village of Gurur area of Durg district., reports the Evangelical Fellowship of India.

The attackers rushed to the attack site in a truck where around 2,500 people from nearby villages had gathered to attend an open air prayer meeting last Wednesday.

The innocent Christian worshippers and workers were targeted on the pretext of forceful conversion. In a brutal attack lasting around 10 minutes, the attackers beat them mercilessly and burnt the huge pandal (tent) where they were assembled down to ashes, according to the EFI’s General Secretary, the Rev Dr Richard Howell. The incident was witnessed by viewers on a prime News Channel IBN 7.

  1. WHY CAN’T THE ADMINISTRATION DO ANYTHING TO STOP UNRULY ELEMENTS WHO PATENTLY TAKE LAW INTO THEIR HANDS? IF THERE IS A LAW IN THE LAND, IT MUST BE IMPLEMENTED… INSTEAD WHAT WE SEE, THREAT OF CREATING STRINGER LAWS AND THUG OUTFITS MARAUDING WITH TOTAL IMPUNITY… VIOLENCE WILL ONLY GENERATE VIOLENCE…
