11/10/2009 India (Christian Today)-More than 20,000 letters are to be handed to the Indian High Commission later in the month in a show of solidarity with Christians in India ’s Orissa state.

The letters have been gathered by Open Doors and Premier Christian Radio as part of their Faith Without Fear campaign, which is calling on Christians in the UK to contact Indian Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and urge him to help Christians displaced by violent attacks last year to return to their homes.

He explained the situation that many Christians are facing: “Many people still can’t go back to their homes for fear of being forced to convert to Hinduism.

“I have met some of the victims and it is heart-rending to hear their stories. What amazes me is their resolve to follow Christ at any cost.”
