Increased Security for Churches in Delhi – Unique Times

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a declared Hindu nationalist, vowed earlier this month to protect all religious groups at an event organised by the Catholic community, a long awaited reassurance widely seen as a response to the violence. The government said on Wednesday it had boosted security around hundreds of churches in New Delhi after a spate of attacks on religious institutions unnerved minority Christians. Minister of State for Home Haribhai Chaudhary told lawmakers that extra police had been deployed to protect 240 churches in the capital, and that surveillance cameras had been installed in and around all religious centres. Since December, five churches in the capital have reported incidents of arson or theft.
