WHAT CHURCHES CAN DO TODAY FOR INDIA
On last Christmas, Dec 25 2021, the government of India barred other Teresa’s operations of serving poor in India from receiving any donations from your churches or any other foreign entity. Mother Teresa won a Nobel Peace Prize for her selfless work running homes for people who are dying of HIV/AIDS, leprosy and tuberculosis.
On Christmas Eve, Hindu extremists burned effigies of Santa Claus and disrupted church services and Nativity plays, and vandalized statues of Jesus.
The New York Times estimates that there are 30 million Christians in India who are being attacked regularly while RSS-BJP led government remains silent or complicit.
India is a beautiful country, with a lovely culture, where Hindus, Muslims, and Christians have lived together for centuries. It now the only country in the world with two genocide alerts. India is falling apart at the hands of the extremists who praise the killer of Gandhi and where Hitler enjoys popularity, according to an Israeli essay. These extremists want to establish a Hindu only country. They are perhaps the reason why India today, is rated as the most racist country in the world according to the Washington Post. Amnesty was forced to leave India8 and other human rights activists are attacked so no one can dare to raise their voice.
BJP government is behind the thugs on the street. Its leaders are members of RSS whose member killed Gandhi.

About Justice For All
An NGO with Consultative Status at the United Nations (DPI), Justice for All is an Illinois registered nonprofit organization based in Chicago, with staff in Washington DC, New York, Boston, Houston, Toronto, and Ottawa. The organization, which was incorporated in 1999, grew out of advocacy efforts on the human rights abuses experienced in Bosnia and later Kosovo during the break-up of the former Yugoslavia. At that time, it was instrumental in shaping the discourse around the ‘genocide’ debate and campaigned to declare rape as a war crime in international law. 27 E.
