On December 25, a mob of 30 Hindu radicals from the Bajrang Dal stopped four buses carrying 200 children on their way to a Christmas program in India’s Uttarakhand State. The radicals claimed the children were being taken to churches in Dehradun to be forcefully converted to Christianity and abused by pastors.
All 200 children were Hindus from the slums of Haridwar and were on their way to Dehradun to attend a Christmas program when they were stopped. The radicals pressured local police into arresting Sandeep Kashyap, a Hindu teacher escorting the children.
