In the wake of recent attacks on Christian churches and other minority institutions in India, Home Minister Rajnath Singh today said that the government will take strong action against anyone found guilty for such acts.
“Whether it is an attack on a temple, mosque or any other religious place, whatever action is required, we will take that strongly,” he told reporters on the sidelines of a function here.
The Home Minister also said that there is no need to create a sense of fear among the minority communities and efforts should be made to “instead instil confidence in them”.
A church was allegedly vandalised in Haryana and an aged nun allegedly raped at a convent in West Bengal in the last fortnight.
Also, in the last few months, several churches and a school have been allegedly vandalised in Delhi, prompting Christian groups to demand protection for their institutions and strong action against those involved in such acts.
