Hindu Extremists in India Attack Christians


Morning Star News, March 7, 2018



Christians on their way to a recent Christian camp in eastern India shared the purpose of their trip with fellow bus passengers, not realizing one of them was a Hindu extremist.


He began cursing and accusing the Christians of “always converting innocent and poor villagers.”


When they arrived at the bus station, 60 to 70 angry Hindu extremists were waiting for them. The hard-line Hindu had made phone calls to Hindu nationalist groups.


The mob separated out the native missionary, D. Joseph, as well as another Christian, Baldev Singh, and assaulted them.


  1. Joseph sustained several internal injuries and was hospitalized in a state of deep shock. Singh also was hospitalized with multiple injuries, including internal damage to his ear.


There was a media person present to record and publish the entire episode in the media, along with the Hindu extremist mob.
