India Ignores Barack Obama’s Advice. Church Attacked Again

Attack on Church

Attack on Church

As religious hatred is on the rise in India for the past few months, miscreants attacked a church in New Delhi on Monday.

The incident happened in India’s capital from where Prime Minister Narendra Modi leads his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to run the national affairs.

Recently, the U.S. President Barack Obama during his visit in India had expressed his concerns over the growing incidents of communal violence and religious hatred in India. He had also advised that the people in India must be given full religious freedom, as the Constitution of India prescribes.

However, just a few days after Obama’s message, the attack on Church has happened right in the country’s capital.

A member of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) in India today visited the attacked church in Delhi’s Vasant Kunj area to assess the damage. This is the fifth such incident of church attack in the past couple of months.

In December, NHRC had issued notice to local authorities on an incident of arson in the Catholic Archdiocese of St. Sebastian’s Church in Delhi.

The incident had led to widespread protests by Christians in India. Over 1,000 Christians participated in a protest in Delhi demanding police action in the case.
