For the first time an all-India picture has emerged of anti-Christian violence from a people’s tribunal.Victims of Christian persecution from across India shared their horrific stories and highlighted the denial of justice to them before an independent people’s jury.
According to International Christian Concern (ICC), the depositions were part of “The Independent People’s Tribunal against the Rise of Fascist Forces in India and the Attack on the Secular State,” a three-day program which concluded here on March 22.

In its report, ICC said the independent jury was organized by non-profit organizations Anhad and Human Rights Law Network, and supported and attended by a plethora of rights groups, including Christian organizations, like the All India Christian Council (AICC) and the Christian Legal Association.

Of the 100 victims who submitted their statements, about 40 were Christian. The rest were mainly were from Gujarat state, which witnessed a wide-scale killing of members of the Muslim minority community in 2002.
