The issue of the fire at a church in Delhi was raised in the Rajya Sabha Tuesday, with Trinamool Congress member Derek O’Brien saying Christians are being targeted.
“It is a case of targeted arson,” he said.
“The timing is important. The incident is not an isolated one. Similar incidents have happened in Madhya Pradesh. Christians are a minority in minorities and they are being targeted,” he said.
The Trinamool Congress member also said that Home Minister Rajnath Singh should make a statement on it.
A Catholic church in east Delhi was gutted under mysterious circumstances last week.
The caretakers of the church have alleged the involvement of some unidentified men in the fire. A special investigation team (SIT) is probing the incident.
