More than four thousand protesters took part in a rally in New Delhi, India, recently to demand that the Indian government acts to quell the recent increase in violence against Christians. The rally was called in response to two attacks against Christians which were televized on several news channels. Christian leaders are concerned that copycat attacks could take place in the future unless the government vocalizes opposition to these and other similar attacks, many of which are committed with impunity. The protest was organised by the All India Christian Council (AICC), the All India Catholic Union, Truth-Seekers International, the Christian Lawyers Association and the All India Confederation of Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes. Muslim, Buddhists and Hindu representatives, women’s groups and students joined the thousands of Christians from all denominations who took part in the rally. (Christian Solidarity Worldwide)
