    Default Hindu Nationalists Call For Forced Expulsion Of Christians From India, Trample Pope’s Image

    I've heard of Jewish-Muslim clashes, and Muslim-Christian clashes, Muslim-Hindu clashes, etc, but I never heard of Hindus being anti-Christian before.

    This is what is going on in India:



    Hindu nationalists openly called for a Christian-free India, accused Christians of supporting terrorism and trampled an image of Pope Francis in a recently published online video.

    The group, led by Hindu leader Om Swami Maharaj, chanted “Pope Francis murdabad,” translated as “down with Pope Francis,” after Maharaj called for the forceful expulsion of Christians from India, according to Crux Now. Hindu nationalists spread the video online in response to Delhi Archbishop Anil Couto’s appeal to India’s Catholics to fast and pray in the lead-up to 2019’s elections.

    “We are witnessing a turbulent political atmosphere which poses a threat to the democratic principles enshrined in our constitution and the secular fabric of our nation,” Cuoto’s appeal read.

    “It is our hallowed practice to pray for our country and its political leaders all the time but all the more so when we approach the general elections. As we look forward towards 2019 when we will have new government, let us begin a prayer campaign for our country from May 13.”

    Cuoto also attached a written prayer to the appeal.

    “May the ethos of true democracy envelop our elections with dignity and the flames of honest patriotism enkindle our political leaders. This is our cry, Heavenly Father, in these troubled times as we see the clouds eclipsing the light of truth, justice and freedom,” Cuoto’s prayer read.

    Several leaders of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party objected to Cuoto’s appeal and to his prayer, calling it divisive and accusing him of meddling in India’s politics. One BJP member of parliament even called for the Indian government to sever diplomatic relations with the Vatican.



    The PM must direct MEA to scrap the diplomatic relations with Vatican and seal the its Embassy in Chanakyapuri because the Archbishop is a formal nominee of the Vatican

    Cuoto responded that he and fellow Indian Catholics pray and fast regularly and that his appeal was in no way an attempt to meddle in India’s government.

    “I’m not meddling in partisan politics. Absolutely not,” Cuoto said. “But we’re really praying that nation should walk in right direction.”

    Hindu nationalist attacks on Christians in 2017 doubled from those recorded in 2016, coming to a total of 736 attacks compared to 2016’s 348.

    Shibu Thomas, founder of Persecution Relief, said the attacks follow a growing trend among Hindu nationalists of accusing Christians of committing acts of sedition and thereby portraying them as threats to India’s national security
    .

    The trend “is a clear indication that those opposed to Christians want to portray them as serious threats to the nation’s safety and security,” Thomas told UCA News.

    Well, I'm sure the fact that British Christians brutally oppressed India for decades has nothing to do with it?

    The Hindoo fanatics are only following the example of the Tipoo Sultan, who supposedly fed redcoats to his pet tigers.

    I have a modicum of wary respect for Muslims bc they consider Catholics to be 'ppl of the book' and they also venerate Mary Most Holy and the Savior Jesus Christ, i.e. which the Muslims call a prophet and the messiah; I have no respect for Hindoos bc they equate Him to the level of some kind of guru or a yoga master.

    Makes no sense, they’re such a small minority.

    Without talking politics and own opinions, it could be the issue. Last week I talked with a Bangladeshi taxi driver about this same topic and his opinion was that all this religious fight between Hindus, Muslims and Christians is a legacy of British colonial rule. I don't know how, maybe someone wants to explain.

    I1 - Transdanubia 5000 BC

    Three simple facts about Finns:
    1. Baltic Finnic languages (including Finnish) never came from the Volga basin along with ancestors of present-day Finns.
    2. Finnish I1 (around 30% of all Finns) has Germanic roots from the late Bronze Age or the early Iron Age.
    3. As to the Finnish prehistory we have no evidences about any Iron Age (or later) east-to-west migration, but many unquestionable evidences about west-to-east migrations.

    The British used to play them against eachother, propping up one group. It was usually Muslims over Hindus (only 2% of India is Christian so not many of them). Then there is the whole issue with the partition which screwed both Hindus in Pakistan and Muslims in India. Then you have the whole Kashmir issue.

    Modern Hindu nationalists are kind of nuts, though. There are a lot of them here in Canada too. When you hear about far right street marches in Canada, people assume it’s all white folks, but that is not true, most of them are Hindu. And politicians of that type mostly target Hindu voters in the vote-rich Toronto suburbs.

    Don't take this news seriously. There are a few extremists in every part of the world, nothing is actually going to happen to Indian Christians.
    And where would they expel them to? Most Indian Christians (and people of other religions throughout South Asia) are native converts.
