In India, over six hundred incidents of violence against Christians were reported during 2023.

Christian institutions are being attacked by RSS, Bajrang Dal, Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad and many other militant groups in rural areas of India.

A local Hindutva group in Assam threatened Christian schools to remove all Christian symbols within fifteen days.

In Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, Hindu extremists also warned missionary school managements to install Saraswati idol at school gates.

Challenging the religious independence of Christians, the Modi government made compulsory reading of the Preamble of the Constitution of India in Catholic schools.

The BJP siphoned off significant amounts of money for churches from international religious donors and Christian leaders began to be targeted by the Indian government.

The Indian Conference of Catholic Bishops wrote a letter to highlight the challenges faced by Indian Christians due to the unjust policies of the Indian government.
