ICC (02/10/06) You might have been hearing about the preparations of attack and re-conversion of hundreds of thousands of Tribal Christians to Hinduism in Gujarat . This is mainly focused in the District of Dang in Gujarat and the three districts of Maharashtra that are bordering to Gujarat, namely Nandur Bar, Nasik and Dhule. All these districts have hundreds and thousands of Tribal Christians.
You may remember the atrocities of the Hindu Militants, especially the VHP (Viswa Hindu Parishad), to the Christians of Dang in 1998 when many Christians were attacked, churches were damaged, and properties of Christians were destroyed. The one that they are planning now is much bigger in focus and intensity.
It may please be noted that these Christians do not have too much commitment to non-violence especially if their women and girls are touched.
The state Governments of Gujarat and Maharashtra and the district collectors are all (it appears) committed to help the Hindu Militants. Even the media is not giving any coverage according to the seriousness of the situation. The Human Right Organizations seem to be interested to do things only after everything is over.
This is a time to pray and intercede for the Christians of Gujarat and Maharashtra . Many Churches all over India have declared Saturday February 11th, 2006, as a day of fasting and prayer. Please join in this prayer and continue till the evil designs of Hindu Militants are defeated in Gujarat and Maharashtra .
