Installment #2 - Persecution Watch - India

In India, 5 Christian workers were beaten by Hindu extremists. This is unfortunately a normal occurrence in India. However, a disturbing trend is that the police are aiding these attacks according to this report. In this recent case, the Christians were arrested and the attackers were not. The charges: hurting religious sentiments of Hindus. People don't normally think of India as a place of persecution, but unfortunately it happens way more than it should for the so called world's largest democracy.
