From One New Now:
The founder of Gospel for Asia says recent violence against Christians in one Indian state is leading to ethnic cleansing.....Anti-Christian extremists in Orissa state began attacking homes last month. They also attacked churches and other Christian ministries after a well-known Hindu leader was murdered. While the attacks seem to be subsiding in larger cities, they continue in more remote areas.....Gospel for Asia (GFA) missionaries on scene say the current wave of attacks is planned out and now involve nine districts. K.P. Yohannan, president of GFA, says it appears the attacks are a type of ethnic cleansing....."Hindu radical fundamentalists want to kill out all the Christians they can possibly find and they're hunting them down…800 plus houses [have been] destroyed and burned down and 26 of our church buildings destroyed," he decries....The ministry leader reports that at least 24 GFA missionaries have been attacked and some have joined thousands of other Christians seeking refuge in the forests. At least six people have been killed.
