Attacks in India against Christians rising in 2016

NEW DELHI (BP) -- The Evangelical Fellowship of India's Religious Liberty Commission has tallied 134 attacks on Christians or their churches in the first half of 2016 -- nearly as many as the annual totals for both 2014 and 2015. The EFI, pointing out that the cases chronicled from Jan. 1 to June 30 were just a "fraction of the violence on the ground" (only "carefully corroborated" incidents were included), made several recommendations to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's nationalist government, including the repeal of the controversial "anti-conversion laws."
