Thank you for posting this Secundulus. I have actually heard about this violence in India for quite a bit longer than when it was first posted on this forum, and I am rather familiar with the persecution of the Lord's church in Orissa. This is my prayer for these Hindus:
O daughter of Babylon, doomed to be destroyed, blessed shall he be who repays you with what you have done to us! Blessed shall he be who takes your little ones and dashes them against the rock! (Psalm 137:8-9)
May the Lord Jesus inflict vengeance even to eternal destruction on those who do not obey his Gospel. And may our fellow Christians remember the wrath that God has treasured for our enemies, so that they will not seek any personal retribution of their own.
This severe Hindu persecution of Christians has an underlying cause. It is rooted in the fundamental belief that a Hindu is one by birth, and hasn't the right to reject the idolatry of Hinduism. Note what is stated in the article:
“Who am I to give assurance?” he snapped. “Those who have exploited the Kandhas say they want to live together?”
Besides, he said, “they are Hindus by birth.”
The Christians are "Hindus by birth," therefore it offends the Hindus that they reject the evils of idolatry and false Hindu religion to obey the voice of God and the Gospel of his Son. I have found that this sentiment is held even by the less sanguinary Hindus.
