04/30/2010 India (Christian Today)-The World Alliance of Reformed Churches (WARC) has expressed grave concern at the growing violence against Christians in the country.

“We are very concerned at the escalating incidents of violence against Christians. I have personally called our member churches all over the world to pray for churches in India ,” Rev. Dr. Setri Nyomi, the general secretary of WARC, said on Friday.

World Alliance of Reformed Churches is one of the oldest confessional bodies serving more than seventy-five million Christians in about 107 countries. Among the WARC member churches in India are the CSI, CNI and Presbyterian Church.

Speaking to Christian Today, Dr. Nyomi refuted the allegations of “forceful conversions” and said it is used as a pretense to subdue minorities.

“Under the pretense of conversion, too many times Christians are being persecuted. It is my hope and prayer that the Indian government and security forces will investigate and take this matter seriously.”
