Christian victims being evicted from relief camps in Orissa, India


[Religious Intelligence] 13 Jan 2009--New Delhi: A displaced Christian woman in the eastern state of Orissa has approached the state high court alleging that the government is forcibly evicting the thousands of people who lost their homes in a spate of anti-Christian violence in Kandhamal district in August 2008.

Kesamati Pradhan from Raikia area of Kandhamal filed a public-interest litigation in the Orissa High Court seeking intervention against “forced” evacuation of the victims from relief camps “without adequate life protection measures, relief and compensation,” reported The Telegraph newspaper today.
