Christian worshippers attacked with Hockey Sticks

CHRISTIANS were attacked and beaten with hockey sticks by dozens of violent members of a Hindu militant organization in the latest episode of religious persecution in India. The vicious attack took place in Agra, an Indian city in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, on October 30. The Christians, five men, and two women were leading a prayer meeting at a local hotel. According to one of them, the Christians gathered had just finished a music programme when the violence broke down. The seven were severely beaten, before been handed over to the police by their attackers, in a twisted turn of the events. The thugs justified their assault by claiming the Christians gathered were trying to forcefully convert Hindus.
