Seven Christians in Agra, a city located in India’s Uttar Pradesh state, were attacked and beaten with hockey sticks by dozens of Bajrang Dal and VHP hardline activists. To justify their assault, the hardliners claim the Christians were attempting to forcefully convert Hindus and were using derogatory language against Hinduism.
On Tuesday, October 30, the Christians, including five men and two women, were leading a prayer meeting at a hotel in Agra. According to one of the victims, the Christians were just finishing a music program when the attack started.
