OP's Perspective

On 13 October 2008, the National Integration Council of India called a special meeting chaired by Manmohan Singh, then Prime Minister of India and raised the voice against spreading anti-Christian violence in India. The prime minister had earlier publicly admitted that the ongoing violence against the Christian communities was a matter of great "national shame"

On 12 October 2008, Pope Benedict XVI criticized the continuing Anti-Christian violence in India.

Human Rights Watch has blamed Hindu organizations like Vishwa Hindu Parishad (World Hindu Council, VHP), the Bajrang Dal, and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (National Volunteer Corps, RSS) for violence against Christians in India.
