Indian security forces have been urged to increase protection of Christians.

CALCUTTA, INDIA (BosNewsLife)– Christians in India’s eastern West Bengal state were recovering of their injuries Thursday, April 12, after Muslim militants broke up a prayer meeting and beat up believers, including women, local police and Christians said.

The March 30 attack in the village of Nutangram in Murshidabad district involved “about 100 Muslim radicals” led by Muslim leader Mohammed Aanu Shaike, local Christians explained.

There was no immediate reaction from the leader and no group claimed responsibility for the attack.

The Muslim mob allegedly “barged into the prayer meeting” at the home of a Christian and verbally abused them and mercilessly beat up the Christians including women.”

Muslim women were also provoked to beat up Christian women, witnesses said. The Muslims reportedly chased the Christians, including children, with a knives, threatening to murder them all.


Christians were seen “running for their lives including children who were crying in fear but they were stopped at every corner by radicals who kicked, pushed and verbally abused them,” added Christians, who did not want to be identified.

Some 500 Muslims allegedly watched the scene “in amusement” as the Christians were chased around for about one and a half hour, injuring some Christians.

Local police said they rushed to the spot after being informed about the tensions by Christian leaders. There were no reports that suspects have been detained.

Increased Muslim attacks against Christians are a relative new phenomena in India, a predominantly Hindu nation where often Hindu militants are known for violence targeting the nation’s minority Christian community.


  1. The twin fascisms that causes most massacres, wars, “conflicts” today:
    Arabism is racism (Arab racism, Arab-apartheid)

    Millions upon Millions are/became victims of [pan-] Arabism which is the worst current form of racism in its gigantic proportions, like: Kurds Jews (not just in Israel) Berbers (the real natives of North Africa), Africans (not just in the genocide in the Sudan or in Egypt on native Nubians by Arab invaders – till today), Persians, etc.

    Islamism is bigotry (Islamofascism, Islamic-apartheid)!

    The Islamic supremacy that “works” towards its vision of “final Islamic domination on the entire planet”, from Middle east to Africa from Asia to Eurabia, from forced conversions, terrorism, & massacres in multiple countries (like: Thailand, Philippines, China, Indonesia, Tunisia, Morocco, Kenya, Tanzania, Nigeria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Lebanon India, USA, France, Israel, Russia, UK, etc.) to propaganda, the war includes on Muslims who are not radical enough…,

    Let’s face it! that entire war on Israel & the Jews since the 1920’s by infamous fascist Mufti Haj Amin Al-Husseini who started the “genocide campaign” [and continues by the children, grand children of Arab immigrants into Israel – Palestine – now conveniently called “Palestinians”] in a clear outlined declaration to ‘kill all Jews’, is nothing but out of pure Arab Muslim bigotry.

    Why does biased media blame Israel defenders from vicious Arab Muslims who use civilians when they attack Israeli civilians… so that their civilians (they prefer kids to) die, then parade with the casualties as “innocent victims”???

    While the Islamo Arab dictatorship (& real Apartheid upon the non-Arabs, non-Muslims) goes on…
    Israeli [ungrateful] Arabs won’t mention FAVORITISM by democratic pluralistic multi-racial Israel in: land, courts & universities. By the same token, the totalitarian & mullahcracy dictators of Iran with its Hezbollah thugs & militant “Palestine” anti-freedom forces cast their genocide plan under “freedom fighting.”
