Attack on Christian School Raises Alarm in India

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi meets with Dehli's police commissioner today to investigate violence against religious minorities.

(Reuters) – Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday summoned Delhi’s police commissioner after a sixth attack on a Christian building in the capital in the last two months, fuelling concerns that religious minorities are being targeted.

Suspects broke into a Christian school in south Delhi on Friday, stole some money, damaged closed-circuit television cameras and ransacked parts of the building. Police say they suspect the case is one of burglary rather than intimidation.

Religious intolerance in India would have shocked freedom fighter icon Mahatma Gandhi, U.S. President Barack Obama said last week. India’s success depended on its not splintering along religious lines, Obama said on a visit last month.

Even after a spate of attacks, Modi, a self-proclaimed Hindu nationalist, has yet to publicly comment on the violence.
