The COVID-19 crisis has been devastating for all Indians, but sadly, a crisis of increasing religious violence and discrimination rages on even during the pandemic.

 

Every day, Christians and other religious minorities across the country are being harassed, arrested, beaten, raped, and even murdered. They’re being withheld COVID relief, and in some areas of the country the local police and politicians are participating in and advocating for this persecution and discrimination.

 

But you can help.

 

We're asking Canadian Christians to speak out and stand for truth in a unified way.

 

Will you help fight for the voiceless?

 

We can all be part of the solution.

"This may be the last time we are able to speak up for our country. Even if it doesn't make a difference, we have to do it."
