International Christian Concern (ICC) has learned that police in India’s capital of New Delhi have arrested hundreds of Christians demonstrating against a recent string of attacks on churches. Christians claim that five churches in New Delhi have been attacked over the past two months as religious intolerance continues to grow in the South Asian nation.
Hundreds of Christians gathered in New Delhi Thursday, Feb. 5, to demand greater protection for Christians and their places of worship. Demonstrators gathered outside the Sacred Heart Cathedral, near the Indian parliament, and planned to march to the residence of the Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
