india 161509 640India (MNN) — Earlier this month, a group of British parliamentarians presented a “Commentary on the Current State of Freedom of Religion or Belief” and called out 27 countries for religious freedom abuses. They presented the report on December 10 — the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. India was one of the nations on that list.

India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s political party, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), has a goal to make all of India a Hindu nation — or “Hindu Rashtra” — by 2024. Due to a planned campaign by Hindu nationalists, between four and five churches have been attacked every day recently, according to sources from Voice of the Martyrs Canada.
