Christians in India Demand Protection

(2 Oct 08 - RV) Thousands of Christians marched to the memorial of Indian pacifist leader Mohandas Gandhi today demanding protection following rising attacks on followers of their faith in India. Many Christians in India’s Orissa State remain in makeshift camps or have even fled into the woods to escape a nearly 6-week old spate of violent persecution. Pressure is mounting for the country’s Federal Government to take more decisive action to stop the murder, rape, expropriation and forced apostasy of Christians that began in Orissa and has spread through three states.
