Legal Reprieve for Christians in India

by | Wed, Nov 25 2020

Christians in India have received a respite from Hindu persecution after the high court ruled in their favour.

The court ruled that Christians whose houses were bulldozed for refusing to convert to Hinduism would be allowed to rebuild without further persecution for their beliefs.

According to Christian Headlines, the Christians were called to a village meeting and told to recant their faith, or else.

When they refused, the extremists began the attacks in which 16 homes were demolished and the Christians were physically abused.

The Christians later filed a petition, and though the high court ruled against the extremists, local police reportedly have not intervened.

Four men remain imprisoned for refusing to convert to Hinduism.

This violates India’s constitution which states freedom of religion for all.
