Christian Missionary School in Madhya Pradesh’s Betul ‘Attacked’ by Right-Wing Mob

A Christian missionary school in Betul district faced an attack on Sunday, January 7, allegedly orchestrated by a right-wing Hindutva mob led by Bajrang Dal members.

During prayers, two Bajrang Dal members, including a woman, forcefully entered the school, creating chaos. They claimed that the Christian community members were conducting “forced religious conversions” and said that locals were forced into praying at the empty school.

While Betul Police Station neither confirmed nor denied the incident, a video circulating on social media captures scenes from the alleged attack.

In a similar incident in September 2023, Sagar district witnessed right-wing Hindutva supporters storming St. Mary’s Convent School, accusing it of disrespecting the Hindu god Ganesh. The mob demanded a police investigation against the principal, creating a disturbance by entering her cabin.

Principal Sister Sarita Joseph strongly refuted the allegations, emphasizing the school’s respect for all religions without bias. “We offer education to all our students equally,” she said.
