The recent attacks on churches and Christians in Chhattisgarh, Karnataka, and elsewhere post-Christmas and in the New Year indicate continued violence against the minority community with alarming regularity. Several incidents of miscreants vandalizing churches and attacking Christians have been reported in India over the past few years, with the incidents moving from being sporadic to frequent.
The Archdiocese of Delhi joined 76 Oriental, Baptist, Orthodox and Pentecostal Churches for a ‘Peaceful Protest’ day at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi on Feb.19, 2023. The courageous, inspiring and peaceful protest was held on the theme “STOP Hate and Violence against Christians.”
Risking repercussions to stand for the cause were SCNs Ann Moyalan, Premila Parackattu, Kitamai Sinku, Swarupa Rani and Kalpana Kerketta of Patna and Bangalore Province who actively participated in this movement of advocacy to safeguard the Constitutional values of the nation.
Over 10,000 participants from across Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Haryana gathered to pray, and sing during the protest. A memorandum drafted this day was presented to government officials.
