New Delhi: Just ahead of the Delhi Assembly polls, hundreds of Delhiites have come together for a protest march over the recent church attacks and governments inaction in the case.
The protesters will be marching from the Scared Heart Church till Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s residence in Delhi.
It’s a silent protest to express our anguish over government’s inaction in the church attack cases, said a protester to TV reporters.
The protesters demand an answer as to why police has not taken any action against the miscreants and why the government is silent.
The Delhi police has reached the spot and is detaining the protesters.
Section 144 has been imposed outside Home Minister’s residence.
A church was vandalised by unidentified miscreants in South Delhi’s Vasant Kunj area on Feb 2, 2015.
This is the fifth such attack on a church since November last year.
Last month, a church was vandalised in West Delhi’s Vikaspuri area. In December, the St Sebastian’s Church in Dilshad Garden, was partly gutted and the Christian community had alleged foul play in the incident.
