-Orissa, India: Persecution of Christians Continues–35+ Dead, 140 Churches Burned, 50,000+ Homeless

by Dr. D ~ October 9th, 2008

image The Federal government of India has sent national police into the State of Orissa, but the persecution of Christians by Hindu radicals continues unabated.

One of the major issues behind the persecution is the traditional caste system. The lowest castes are converting to Christianity, particularly the Dalits or so-called ‘untouchables’, who used to live lives of servitude and virtual slavery to the upper classes, but now are liberated and receiving education. This change of status has caused a lot of anger among the Hindus.

We really do need to continue to support these folk in our prayers and attempt to influence the Federal Government of India to take better control of the situation.
