Last decade and a half has seen gradual intensification of violence against Christians. The worst of this was the burning alive of Pastor Graham Stains. The propaganda doing rounds against them is very vicious and ill founded. In the face of this violence the state machinery has not acted firmly and the suitable protective action is missing.
Various human rights groups have investigated these violations of democratic rights. This book is a compilation of most of the (12) citizen's inquiry reports. It also includes the report of Wadhva Commission. This commission was appointed by NDA in the aftermath of the ghastly murder of Pastor Stains. It also has reports from Gujarat. MP and Mahrashtra. Some these reports take an all Indian view and have investigated anti Christian violence cutting across different states.
It has some analytical articles on the theme. The contributors to these articles are Rudolf Heredia, Vinay Lal, K.N.Panikkar, Ram Puniyani, Rowena Robinson, M. Prakash Singh, Rowena Robinson and Virginius
