Two nuns “dragged” to police station by Hindu nationalists in India


According to Asia News, radical Hindu nationalists “dragged” two nuns to a nearby police station while they were waiting for a bus in northern India’s Uttar Pradesh State.

The Nuns were accused of participating in fraudulent conversion activities and were released from police custody after several hours.

In the same instance, Hindu extremists interrupted a house prayer meeting where a group of evangelicals had gathered. They, too, were forced into police custody.

Speaking to Asia News, Father Anand Mathew of the Indian Missionary Society said:

“The episode took place on Sunday in the Mau district of the eastern part of Uttar Pradesh. A horde of extremists attacked a group of Christians who were gathered for Sunday services. It was about noon. The two nuns, Sister Gracy Monteiro and Sister Roshni Minj, of the Franciscan congregation of the Ursulines, were not part of the group but were waiting for a bus at a nearby stop to go to Varanasi. Still, they were dragged to the police station. They were not released until 6 p.m., following pressure from the capital of Uttar Pradesh.”
