Persecution spreading at a 'rapid rate' across India
Persecution in India is at its highest level in 70 years, a new report has warned.

The report, by US-based charity Persecution Relief, said that persecution was spreading at a 'rapid rate' across the majority-Hindu country, with 477 incidents of violence recorded in 2018, up 37 from the previous year.

Instances of persecution included disruptions to worship services, vandalism, churches being closed off by the authorities, churches and Bibles being set on fire, congregations being evicted by landlords following pressure from hardliners, access to churches being blocked, and local authorities refusing to grant permission for new church construction.

According to the report, the most common form of persecution experienced by Indian Christians was threats, harassment or intimidation for their faith. ...

This should make you happy, Neil, I'm going to have to agree with you both points. The United the United States certainly doesn't pay much attention to US Constitution. I also will say that apparently the United States has won the most unwelcoming countries for refugees. (U.S. public seldom has welcomed refugees into country)

However, they have been very welcoming to people from India. They make one of the largest immigrant groups in the U.S. And actually the demographics immigrants some what matches their native country, for example 50% of the people who immigrated from India were Hindus and only 10% plus the 5% Catholics, are part of the total mixture. Perhaps a little more then is representative of the India. However, I have a feeling that most of the immigrants from India we're fairly well-healed when they came over here anyway.

Your CBN quote is now about immigration of Christian minorities. Are Indian Christians trying to emigrate here? You're shifting ground, trying to find mud that'll stick to Trump.

The US is hardly in a position to lecture other countries on heeding their constitutions.

Trump in words if not actions doesn't agree with you, Neil.
For example,
Max Greenwood wrote:
resettlement of Christian refugees over members of other religious groups, President Trump said on Friday.

“They’ve been horribly treated,” Trump said in an interview with Christian Broadcasting Network anchor David Brody. “Do you know if you were a Christian in Syria it was impossible, at least very tough, to get into the United States?”

excerpt from, "Trump: Persecuted Christian refugees will get priority"

[ ]

Well, that was supposed to be the official policy, I supposed Trump suddenly realize they didn't look like Norwegian so they didn't get in? I don't remember Christians from Syria getting priority treatment.

No, I don't remember any Republican administration griping to India or any other country about how minority religions are being treated, and probably in failing to remind Indian government's that it was in their country's Constitution that there was supposed to have religious freedom.

So no doubt, Trump behaved like any other past President.

Name a past administration which ever did; Hindu persecution didn't begin last year.

A visiting Indian missionary indeed told us about Hindu threats to Christians in a certain northern province, but didn't ask that we lobby Congress or the White House to "do something." Maybe he understands about keeping religion out of politics better than you do.

BBC wrote:

Trump has a licensing deal for buildings in Mumbai and Pune.

One of his deals is with the Lodha Group, whose founder, Mangal Lodha, is also a vice-president in the ruling government party, BJP.

Shortly after Mr Trump won the presidency, some of his Indian business partners flew to the US to congratulate Mr Trump, who took time out of transition meetings to discuss "US-India relations".
