9:11 am
the highlight of pastors oh i've read this week has always been the sunday sylvia. but now he's being alone at his church and hopefully it is the 1st time he had been back in more than see monday, last october. as faster was on his way to the church. he received urgent phone calls, wanting him that wall into uh, linked with him to right wing. but disrupting the sunday. break at that and they had barged him and started loudly john thinking. c when the bastard, i have to question them basically that they had proof, he had tried to forcefully convert him to manage them in the past to said he never met the alleged victim before. yet he was still taken to the police station on charges of bubbly abusing a man from a protected gar law. i was the one who called the police. i was going to file a case against them. but they pushed me aside and started beating the beat. 7 members of my church shut down,
9:12 am
entered the police station and abused and threatened with them. no action has been taken against the hindu group. it was the pastor who spent 11 days in jail and he continued to face charges. it didn't end. there's the past, his family was standardized in their neighbourhood. the landlord happened with hum if he didn't evict them in. but if they were forced to move that they also had to pull their daughter out of school because she was being bullied. my children's classmates were harassing them, daunting them, and their father had been sent to prison when my children were embarrassed. and i had to pull them out of school. they haven't been able to return for the last year . christian groups have reported a spike in similar attacks and had a good article, especially after plan for the new law, but on the 5th and not 5 in the process of fostering and 90 conversion loss, switched august conversion, fraudulent offers. but the definition of what is illegal is very broad and the
9:13 am
punishment, very strict, right wing him. the loops here strongly support the law. man, do not have sir, was amongst the men who stormed faster of it at this church. he alleges that christian congregations like of it are these being wash hindus into dejected their religion or offer financial incentives to convert the law. he says, will give them strong grounds to put an end to this event. once the law comes, we can demolish these judges or the already prepared to demolish them yet, but we are waiting for the lobby. a rule once it is passed on, our hands are no longer day and we are free to take action. we can get them and report them to the police and legal arizola day that the following up for now passed over the visits church members at home and only in areas considered safe on this man and his family, but also forced out of their village after the attack on the church, but they see the kind comfort and place all they want is the freedom to do so in
9:14 am
all did of his daily correspondence. mister jossla file, this report and she joins us now from day namisha. these attacks have been going on for some time. why is the government not doing more to protect these christian communities? baker had the simpler jesus is that the government is often one of those making these allegations in the case that we just watched. bill b, timmy's, elected representative, was actually one of the people who led the protests following the past as it all at odessa and actually called for action against him. now of course it's important to note here that the in that in your christian community is one of the oldest in asia and did facts, entities in the target of these groups as well as be debbie legislators is daughter was born hinder and of. and have i been officially converted or covertly believing in christianity, but of quite be debbie legislators themselves had actually been present or have ms fleet of the directly call for action and sometimes even violence against these
9:15 am
communities. and the out of was all for pushing and the conversion laws across the country are tell us more about this, this anti conversion. a bill. what's its purpose? where to look at the one and good not to forget hard. interestingly, it's called the freedom of religion. bill, and if you look at it, simply it actually is prescribe for me is to can word, for example, it says that you should lead authorities nor amount before can wording and also to report your conversion a month after it. however, all of these reports actually allow for die of a dime for alicia barrera. hindu rate when golds to attack would abuse these people for this is generally a weighted. in addition, many kinds of conversions are considered fraudulent or 4th and can be charged. the would only autumn wind, for example, is used for what is considered illegal and that has such a broad definition that pretty much any one can be charged with forcing conversions . and anyone can afford these conversions as well. not just family,
9:16 am
but neighbors and bystanders door and strict action taken against these people. mister india has also been recording arise in the attacks on minorities for quite some time as this impacting the modi government's popularity. while internationally, condemnation and attention has been brought to the fact that attacks and minorities are rising and india domestically, political analysts believe that this could actually be adding to the more the government's popularity because of the government's agenda, offer hindu josh, georgia, hindu nation. but has been promoted not only to want to see flag these, but also lawson and as well of silence on attack on minorities. now this for example, again, can include a thing that christians are forcing conversions or thing that muslim from adding him to girls and practicing love jihad all of these allegations, demonizing minorities and thing that him, those on the threat. and that hinder should take over by and should be the should
9:17 am

9:21 am
take place during the pandemic, tokyo 2020 ended up of course, taking place a year late and almost totally behind closed doors. so there are some precedents, but yeah, there will still be plenty of disruption. now, athletes are, of course, going to be contained in the coven bubble, subject daily testing. and if any of those are unlucky enough to test positive during that time, that obviously games over there will be immediately removed, taken into isolation. journalists of course, who reporting on the games from beijing or in similar conditions in a separate bubble, also subject to plenty of testing and will have to conduct their interactions with officials and athletes. at a distance and 4 spectators, the disruption has been almost total. now. last year the decision was announced that there would be no international spectators, and only recently we heard that there wouldn't even be a public se of tickets domestically within china now is said that there will still be some spectators. a slightly unclear exactly what the criteria will be. the
