Rediff is reporting that four VHP leaders have just been bumped off by the Naxals in the Kandhamal district of Orissa. This district was recently in the news when some Christian converts vandalized a Hindu temple, resulting in social tensions. Newspapers reported that time that missionaries had called in Naxals and Maoists to “teach a lesson” to the Hindus. Today, we find that four VHP leaders have been killed by the naxals in the same area.
More on this episode and the Naxal-Church nexus soon.
