ICC Note:

Two Christians in India’s Madhya Pradesh state were arrested on Monday after being falsely accused by Hindu radicals of kidnapping six children and attempting to take them to Mumbai for religious conversions. Hindu radicals often abuse anti-forced conversion laws to falsely accuse Christians of forceful conversions. In this case, the police have already admitted that the six children in questions came from a Christian neighborhood and were with the two Christians with the parents’ consent. 

10/24/2017 India (The Indian Express) – Two Christians were arrested from Indore station on Monday after being accused by right-wing organizations of kidnapping six minor children and taking them to Mumbai for conversion.

The Government Railway Police took into their custody Anita Joseph, 50, and Amrit Kumar, 51, and sent the six children to Childline.

Inspector Kunwarlal Warkade said the police were informed by Hindu organizations that some children were being taken to Mumbai by the Awantika Express by a group of Christians. From Mumbai they were to be taken to Kerala.

Anita and Amrit were booked under Sections 363 (kidnapping) and 34 of the IPC and Sections 3 and 4 of the Madhya Pradesh Freedom of Religion Act.
