    5 incidents against Christians reported on Palm Sunday

    On 9 April 2017, which was also Palm Sunday, at least 5 incidents targeting Christians were reported from Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Tamil Nadu. Targeting Christians on special days of worship as Palm Sunday and Christmas is condemnable. We urge the respective State Governments and the Central Government to intervene in the situation and to control the non-state actors who seem to operate with impunity.
