(Compass) – A Hindu fundamentalist group has accused a Christian school in Sukma district, Chhattisgarh, of forcibly distributing copies of the New Testament to students with intent to convert them. In a complaint to Sukma district officials, the Dharam Jagran Manch (DJM) insisted that “Father Victor Manuel Raj and other school staff be criminally investigated and prosecuted for the distribution of 600 Bibles and other missionary literature to school students.” The DJM also demanded that the school ban Christian preaching and music, that it hire at least 50 percent non-Christian staff members and that an image of the goddess Bharat Mata (Mother India) be prominently displayed on the school grounds. District officials asked the school to comply, despite lawyers’ assertions that the demands violate India ’s Constitution.
