Police and local officials in central Madhya Pradesh state have been harassing Christians at the behest of hard-line Hindu groups, according to the Indian Christian leaders.

Richard James, Bhopal district president of the National Christian Forum says, Hindu groups have been “more active and targeting minorities” since the BJP won recent national elections.

Another Christian leader and rights activist AC Michael of New Delhi said events in Madhya Pradesh reflect what is happening throughout India since the BJP assumed power.
