Unprecedented Atrocities against Christians

Tribal Christians in the state of Chhattisgarh in India have been going through unparalleled persecution in the recent months.

The recent aggression intensified when the majority community groups conducted series of regional meetings and made various measures to pressurise Christians to either convert to their religion or leave the village itself. They banned Christians from attending prayers, conducting rituals like wedding or funerals. They also banned Christian leaders from visiting members’ homes, and even restricted Christians from buying or selling goods and from working.

When such tactics were not successful, Christians were brutally attacked and evicted from their homes. They also vandalised and demolished their houses and prayer halls. As a result, around 1500 were displaced in 33 villages of Narayanpur and Kondagaon region of Chhattisgarh.

According to some civil rights groups, it was due to the inaction of the authorities that violence escalated against tribal Christians. It is estimated that during the past 3 years, 400 incidents of violence against Christians have been documented in Chhattisgarh.
