PLEASE PRAY: 4th most dangerous state for Christians [#IndiaPersecution #ChristianPersecution] 08/03
With 21 cases of hate crimes and a murder, Jharkhand is rated as the fourth most “dangerous” state in India for Christians after Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Chhattisgarh, a half-yearly report by Persecution Relief, a nationwide missionary organisation based at Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh and working for Christian rights, noted.
BJP said the report seemed to be lopsided and demanded that similar studies be conducted on “forceful conversions” by missionary groups.
Ruling Congress said the Jharkhand government does not differentiate people based on their religions and persecutions, if any, are triggered by trouble mongers.
The report claimed that 293 cases of crimes against Christians have taken place nationally in the first half of 2020 (January-June) despite a nationwide lockdown since March 25, which is a staggering 40.87% hike compared to 208 incidents in 2019.
Of the total incidents in Jharkhand so far, 14 were reported during April (1), May (5) and June (8) alone.
