"Christians Under Attack in India"

A fact finding report titled, "Christians Under Attack" was released today at the Press Conference organized by Association for Protection of Civil Rights (APCR), United Christian Form, United Against Hate and Jaipur Catholic Diocese at St. Anselm's school, Malviyanagar Jaipur. Speaking on the attacks, Bishop Oswald Lewis said, "India is a country where every religion is respected and has been living together with peace and harmony since centuries. But in the last few years the minority groups have been targeted specially Christian and Muslim communities. It is being done by some fringe group to destabilize the unity of the country." He further said, "It is sad to see that a community that has been offering it's service to everyone in the country specially the poor and marginalised, has become the target. Such attacks are on increase. Besides, the inaction of the Government encourages such groups who go unpunished. Government must take stern actions against them to preserve the unity and democracy of the country."

On the occasion the other prominent persons present were: Fr. Edward Oliveira, the Vicar General of the Diocese, Fr. John Paul svd, the Media Incharge of the Diocese, Pastor Vijay Pal and Mr. Sawai Sing, the state President of Forum for Democracy and Communal Enmity.
