Sharia Court In Indian-Controlled Kashmir Issuing Decrees Against Christians…
Muslim-Majority = Christian persecution.
(CNSNews.com) – India’s Christian minority has long faced harassment at the hands of militant Hindus, but in the Indian-controlled portion of Muslim-majority Kashmir the threat is coming from Islamic fundamentalists.
A shari’a court in Srinagar, capital of India’s Jammu and Kashmir state, has issued a decree expelling four pastors from the territory, after accusing them of using financial inducements to convert young Muslims to Christianity.
Although the court has no legal jurisdiction over non-Muslims, political parties have reportedly remained silent; Indian churches have been alone in protesting the ruling.
“Surprisingly the political class has not spoken a word about it [the court ruling], which is disastrous,” Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India president Cardinal Oswald Gracias said this week.
