In September 13, families did not receive the benefits they are entitled to. The rations canceled because Christians did not want to pay the fee for a Hindu festival. Sajan K George: "These policies want to divide tribals."

Ranchi (AsiaNews) - In a small village in Jharkhand, food rations to 13 poor tribal families have been denied only because they are Christian. This is a complaint to AsiaNews Sajan K George, president of the Global Council of Indian Christians (Gcic). He complains that in the Indian state, "the right of the poor to food has been denied, utilizing the policies of conversion. The social boycott of people in extreme need is not just a question of human rights or a religious affair, but it wounds the soul of the individual deep inside. "

Some 5,000 Christians marched silently through India's Jharkhand state demanding the release of six Christians jailed last week on complaints of offering money to villagers to attract them to Christianity.

The Sept. 25 ecumenical "silent protest" was organized after a local court on Sept. 21 rejected the bail application of six Pentecostals, who were arrested Sept. 15 from Tukupani village in Simdega district.
