Right-Wing Group Members Set Christian Religious Books On Fire In Karnataka

Bengaluru: Activists of a right-wing group have set on fire Christian religious books alleging conversions by the church in Kolar in the latest communal attack against Christians in Karnataka.

There has been no arrest so far in the case. The cops said the Christian community was warned against distributing religious booklets. No member of any right-wing group has been arrested.

“We have warned the Christian community to not create any communal disharmony by going door-to-door and preaching. Both parties, the right-wing and the Christian community members have settled the matter amicably,” a police officer was quoted as saying by NDTV.

The incident happened when Christian community representatives were on a door-to-door campaign as part of a preaching drive. Right-wing group members intercepted and quizzed, before snatching the booklets and setting them on fire.

Admitting that about burning religious books, an activist insisted that they “did not act violently”. “We did not trouble them. They were distributing books in our neighbourhood and were propagating about Christianity,” the activist said.

This is the 38th attack on religious minorities in the southern state in the last year. There has been a flurry of such attacks since the time the BJP-led Karnataka government began contemplating a bill to ban forcible religious conversions.
