2011 worst year for Christians in India

The Christian Today reports on a study released January 13, 2012 by the Catholic Secular Forum which describes the year 2011 as the worst year for Christians in India.

The study, titled Rising Anti-Christian Violence, focuses on 250 specific incidences using evidence from sources, including government records and "categorizes the nature of the crimes with the list including death and murder, grievous injuries, rape/molestation, destruction of churches/houses and Christian property, desecration of bibles/religious articles, Christians jailed and arrested, church workers insulted/threatened, foreign missionaries deported, and more."
The report also lists the most dangerous Indian states for Christians:
Karnataka heads the list of top 10 persecution states, followed by Orissa where half a dozen martyrs died for refusing to yield their faith. Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Kerala, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, and Jammu & Kashmir follow the list.
