Statement of BHPRC regarding Violence in Orissa

Ratings: (0)|Views: 6|Likes:
Barak Human Rights Protection Committee (BHRPC), a human rights organization headquartered at Silchar, Assam denounces the destruction of several churches and other institutions by a group of religious fanatics in the State of Orissa in India. Reportedly at least a dozen churches and prayer houses were ransacked and torched by Hindutva activists belonging to the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Christmas day. One person was killed and 25 hurt in the ensuing violence in different parts of Orissa. This atrocious act displays an increasing trend in anti-Christian violence in India, similar to the attack that was orchestrated against Christians in 1998 in the Dang district of Gujarat.
