(BosNewsLife) – Indian Hindu militants claim they “saved the lives” of 80 church leaders but they do not rule out attacks against religious minorities, including Christians, who are accused of supporting terrorists, BosNewsLife learned Sunday, July 10. “Will somebody tell us who funds these [terrorist] outfits? Why these outfits don’t attack any church or mosque?”, said Shri Indresh Kumar, an official of the hard-line Hindu party Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). He spoke at the end of a controversial training program for RSS militants in New Delhi . It is one of 76 camps for RSS militants which the party is known to have set up across India this year, and an estimated 16,000 party members are believed to have received training there. Advocacy groups and churches fear many of them will use their skills to attack Christians, including pastors and missionaries. However the RSS suggested it was ready for a dialogue with Christians, including in the tense state of Orissa, where the party claims its activists saved the lives of 80 church leaders.
