by Nirmala Carvalho
Hindu fundamentalists burst into a Protestant church, and block the religious service. Police arrest four faithful of the 'New India Church of God. " On April 8, the Stella Maris monastery attacked. Bishop Aloysius Paul D'Souza: "They are envious of our social work ... so they try to frighten the Christian missionaries, and invent false allegations. We are not treated as second-class citizens but as enemies. "

Mumbai (AsiaNews) - Christians are again under attack in Karnataka, targeted by Hindu extremists by police, complicit with the fundamentalists. Sajan K. George, chairman of the Global Council of Indian Christians (GCIC) condemns this new surge of intolerance in an interview with AsiaNews: "The police yesterday arrested 9 believers of the ‘New India Church of God’, at Mysore , Karnataka after around  25, Bajrang Dal Activists stormed the church  while the Sunday morning service was on. .  The Hindu Fundamentalists barged into the church, forcibly stopped the service and began abusing the believers, using the filthiest language.  Religious Freedom is our Constitutional Right and here in Karnataka is seems that the Christians are being threatened, attacked and harassed for their Faith and Practice of our Charitable Works.  The Bajrang Dal collude with officials to terrorize Christian institutions in Karnataka".
