"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

[Media Source*] Note: One may also add that this group is also jealous.
(BosNews Life) Hindu militants who already threatened to burn and kill members of an evangelical congregation in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh have turned that church into a Hindu temple, a missionary group said Tuesday, December 13.
Apparently the Hindu group was upset about a ministry called Gospel for Asia, which has been successfully convincing Hindus to leave their former faith towards Christianity. The leader of the Hindus in Himachal Pradesh is threatening to lead a campaign forcing the Christians to convert back to Hinduism. The Indian police have thus far done nothing to retake the church back, although it may appear that they were surprised by the Hindu hostile take over.
(BosNews Life) [K.P. Yohannan] said he had urged GFA supporters to "pray and fast on behalf of Pastor Bhatti and his family and for all of the believers in their church" so "God's protection will be upon them, and [...] they will stand strong in the face of this horrible persecution."
Human rights groups have expressed concern about what they regard as growing attacks against churches and individual Chriastians across India, a predominantly Hindu nation. Christians comprise roughly two percent of IndiaÂs nearly 1.1 billion people, according to estimates of the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
The Hindu takeover by extremists demonstrates this groups intolerance of other beliefs, philosophies, creed, etc. that do not line up with their own. Such groups generally have more in common with Al Qaeda as opposed to the general population of the world, who would reasonably "agree to disagree" and would move on with life. Hopefully the Indian police can neutralize this force, otherwise India will not be a suitable place for business let alone tourism.
