India’s political parties told to make Christian security a priority

| February 3, 2009

The safety and security of minorities must be the top priority of India's political parties in the forthcoming elections, says the All India Christian Council.

AICC secretary general John Dayal said on Monday that there was a need to "reassure minorities…that India continues to be the secular country envisaged by its founding fathers and guaranteed by the constitution".

Denouncing the rise in anti-Christian violence across India, Dayal stressed the urgency of security, adding that at least 14 states had been hit by violence during 2007-2008. They include most notably Orissa, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.
