Persecution, Beatings and Arrests for Christians
ICC Note: Christians in India are constantly punished or attacked by Hindu radicals. Indian authorities also discriminate Christians and show favoritism for Hindus in their practices and persecution of Christians.
8/10/2018 India (Asia News) – Whilst acts of hooliganism and violence against Christians intensify in Uttar Pradesh, India’s “secular” authorities continue to show “preferences” for Hindus.
Yesterday, senior police and government officials in Meerut (62 km north-east of Delhi), threw rose petals from a helicopter to greet Kanwar pilgrims.
A video, shared on social media, shows Additional Director General of Police Prashant Kumar throwing rose petals during an aerial tour. He was accompanied by Meerut’s commissioner.
