India: Rising Anti-Christian Extremism

10-21-2020 - India has emerged as one of the worst offenders of religious freedom, as Hindu extremists have ramped up their anti-Christian activities in recent years. The Hindu extremists are anti-Western and want to rid India of all Western influence. They see Christianity as the "colonialist" religion of the West that must be purged. These Hindu extremists are usually tolerated current Indian government officials, many of whom are members of these extremist groups themselves. 

In the latest attack, a Christian church in India’s Andhra Pradesh state was burned down by arsonists after repeated threats by local extremists. According to the church’s leadership, extremists had issued several threats against the church if the church was not closed down.

On September 8, at around midnight, neighbors of the Christian Miracle Church, located in Ponduru town, reported flames and smoke coming out of the church building. As Pastor Prabhu Das, and his son, Jeevan, arrived on the scene, they witnessed the flames consume the church building and a car that had been parked beside the church. 

After the arson attack, Pastor Prabhu Das filed a formal complaint with local police. Police say that the incident is "under investigation," but so far no arrests have been made. 

“We have encountered opposition from the Hindu religious extremists several times in the past,” Jeevan told International Christian Concern (ICC). “The radicals have threatened us to stop the church activities in the town. They have warned us of the consequences if we failed to close down the church.”

“I never expected this to happen,” Jeevan continued. “I suspect this is the work of those who threatened us and told us to close down the church.”

Pastor Prabhu Das has been running the Christian Miracle Church in Ponduru town for nearly 38 years. Nearly 300 Christians regularly worship in the church.

Recently, 14 US Senators signed a letter to US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, asking that India be named a Country of Particular Concern (CPC) for its repeated violations of religious freedom.
