(Compass) – Hindu extremists violently attacked Christians at a prayer meeting in Rajasthan state on midnight of August 14, seriously injuring nine believers. The Christians were taking part in an all-night prayer vigil in a private home in Pathda village, Banswara district, near the border between Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh states. One of the assailants struck with an axe, and another tried to strangle a woman, damaging her vocal cords. Police are seeking seven people in connection with the incident — but attempts to obtain justice have already provoked a rampage by Hindu extremists.
