(Compass) – Christians from a small Indian village will have their day in court on May 9 following a violent attack on a prayer meeting on February 23. Members of a radical Hindu group broke up the meeting and left several Christians badly injured – while policemen who were assigned to guard the Christians failed to protect them. Local Hindus have since pressured the Christians to drop their complaint, threatening them with “death and burning down of their houses.” Meanwhile, India ’s top Christian leaders presented an unofficial “white paper” to Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh on Friday, March 11. The document listed over 200 violent incidents against Christians occurring in the first 10 weeks of this year and called on the government to protect the Christian minority.
