Hindu fanatics dictate Christians in Andhra Pradesh

By Dr George Karimalil

(AICC) 7/15/2006- “Don’t do this. Don’t do that. It’s a kind of anarchy where you are forced to comply with. You can’t protest. There’s no escape either. Believe it or not, it’s happening right in Andhra Pradesh, a State far ahead of others in terms of education and healthcare.”

About 20 activists of Bajrang Dal, a right-wing Hindu group, entered the office of the nursing superintendent of Gandhi Hospital in Hyderabad and removed the picture of Christ hanging there on 19 may 2006. According to Hospital Superintendent Dr Chary, the police registered a case against the trespassers after the hospital management complained. But no arrests had been made so far.
