13 September 2008: Masihi Mandir Church, an 80 year old landmark in the city of Indore was burnt by suspected VHP activists in Indore today in the evening.
The Church had also been attacked sometime ago by Bajrang Dal members and they had broken down its window panes, furniture and fixtures during that attack.
The Church is only a few meters away from the Chawni Police station but even that has not stopped it from being an easy target of the hate forces.
The damage due to fire has not been very extensive but doors, windows and other wooden material has been burnt irrecoverably.
Christian Persecution India blog condemns this incident and calls for unity in the Church of Indore to address this issue.
