India: Christians still under attack in Orissa State

Last summer, widespread and unprecedented mob violence against Christians erupted in Orissa state following the assassination of World Hindu Council leader Swami Laxmanananda Saraswati. Although Maoists claimed responsibility for the leader’s murder, Hindu militants continue to use it as a pretext to attack Christians throughout the state and have burned over 2000 Christian homes and shops and hundreds of churches .The initial attacks lasted for weeks and left dozens dead, the majority burned alive. More than 100,000 fled their homes. Many are still unable to return and are living in tents or in relief camps.
