|Statement on Christians and Iraq and the conflict in Gaza|
The Christian community in India condemns unequivocally the targeted violence against the Christian community In Iraq by the militias of the ISIS. We stand in solidarity with the martyrs and our persecuted brothers and sisters in the Middle East We join our voices with other peace-loving people of the world to call for an immediate end to these war crimes against humanity.
Christians have lived in the Arab nations since the First Century. And at present there are almost 40 million Arab Christians who face a threat of death and displacement.
As followers of Christ, we can also not be blind to the violence in Gaza where over 2,000 men, women and epically children, have been killed in an unethical war. We are opposed to this wanton violence and pray for an abiding peace in the region.
