India: Resolution Bans Christianity

(Worthy News) - Christians in India's Chhattisgarh state have been assaulted by Hindus after a local resolution banning all non-Hindu religious activities in their village was passed.

According to International Christian Concern, the attack happened in Karmeri village on Sept. 8 when a mob of 50 or more Hindus assaulted Christians with clubs and sticks.

Tension between Christians and Hindus intensified after Christians began to build a church in the village. When news of the construction spread, local leaders passed a resolution under Section 129 (G) of the Chhattisgarh Panchayat Raj Act that banned all non-Hindu propaganda and prayers in the village. Similar resolutions passed in 50 other villages in Chhattisgarh, effectively making Christianity illegal in that state.

Following the passing of the resolution, life for Christians in Karmeri became even more difficult when they became the subjects of a social boycott.

Although India's constitution guarantees religious freedom for all of its citizens, local authorities often deny this right to India's Christian.

  1. Yes Christians will always try to victimize themselves. Christianity is a true plague. No matter which country you go to you will always find Christians persecuting Jews, Hindus, and other religions.
