A Christian body in Jharkhand on May 13 expressed grave concern over what it says is the misuse of media to systematically spread false and sensational allegations against their community in the eastern Indian state. “The media are systematically implicating Christian institutions in order to incite the public,” says a press release from the All Christians Media Cell that met in the Jharkhand capital of Ranchi earlier in the day to address repeated attacks on the Christian institutions.
The cell has pleaded with “responsible citizens to ignore such misleading reports” and urged the administration to enforce stringent measures against those conspire through irresponsible, unnecessary and inflammatory designs “to vitiate the educational and social atmosphere.”
These forces also seek to dislodge the long standing ambience of peace and harmony in the state, the cell bemoaned.
The cell noted that in the past few months certain organizations and individuals have repeatedly attacked the Christians
The latest were the “false allegations” levelled against the St Anne’s hostel superintendent, the press release said.
