(Compass) – On June 4, a government official in Orissa , India , ordered the demolition of a Christian settlement “within 48 hours” to make way for a boating park to attract tourists to the area. However due to a public outcry, an interim order was passed on June 6 delaying the demolition until the monsoon season had passed. Christians say the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), a radical Hindu group, held a paramilitary training camp in the town from June 2 to 4, attended by some of the state ministers; this may be connected with the demolition order. “The administration is trying to harass the minority Christian community,” the Rt. Rev. Aman Khosola alleged.
