Hunsur Christian Persecution, another Kandhamal in the Making in Karnataka?

By a staff reporter
First Pakshirajapura, Hunsur, Mysore: 30-06-2013 – Hunsur, a small town on the way to Mercara from Mysore, the headquarters of Hunsur Taluk in Mysore District of Karnataka, has been witnessing a spate of protest rallies during the last few weeks. The rallies were organized by the Hindu fundamentalist outfits and the persecuted Christians on allegations and counter allegations of atrocities and alleged forcible conversion of Hindus to Christianity. The first rally was on the 15th of May and the second was on the 6th of June. A large number of people drawn from different parts of the Mysore District as well as the neighbouring districts also supposed to have participated in the two rallies. Apart from the rallies, press conferences, a number of group level meetings were also supposed to have been held in different places to get the people worked up against each other. There is a genuine fear among some Christians that people with vested interests would stop at nothing and that there is every likelihood of planned attacks on the lines that took place in 2008 in Kandhamal, Orissa, Mangalore and other parts in Karnataka, if the government fails to take necessary measures in the matter.
