Events in Washington,

July 2016

June 8, 2016, Washington DC.(Updated 6/9/2016@ 12 noon) The Federation of Indian American Christian Organizations (FIACONA) held a Prayer Vigil across the US Capitol where Mr. Modi was addressing the Joint Session of the US Congress.

 

 

Ms. Ann Buwalda, the Director of Jubilee Campaign USA, shared how the situation for Christians and other minorities has gone from bad to worse in India since Modi’s coming to power. She explained that Mr. Modi cannot travel around telling world leaders that the government has religious freedom, referencing Article 25 in the Constitution, while his supporters are let loose to create mayhem in India against Christians. She gave the example of the forced conversion campaigns lead by BJP members, in an effort to re-convert minority members back to Hinduism, where the victims face threats and violence if they try and resist. Minority organizations also face discrimination through administrative restrictions on receiving foreign aid, being accused of using funds for "proselytizing Hindus," she said.

 

Mr. Prabhudoss, the President of FIACONA said that the organization promotes cooperation between US and India. He said Prime Ministers come and go and so are the governments in the long history of the Union of India. But the people of India and the US must come together despite these aberrations that takes place in their respective leaderships from time to time, he pointed out. Read More.....
