India – Hindu Extremists Disrupt Prayer Service
Morning Star News December 22, 2017
Hindu extremists have kept hundreds of Christians from a prayer service and attacked those who managed to attend.
2,000 people were expected on Dec. 6, but only 300 Christians made it past Hindu extremist check-points.
Hindu nationalists positioned men at village entry points and asked people where they were headed.
If they said they were going to the church service, they were shooed away, and if they tried to reason with them, they were threatened and manhandled.
Christian women who objected at the check-points were disgracefully manhandled. They were caught by their throats, and their clothes were pulled to threaten them.
When the worship service began, 700 hard-line Hindus attacked, led by members of the Hindu extremist VHP. They struck vehicles parked outside the prayer hall with sticks and set two of them on fire.
