India struggles with Hindu attacks on Christians

In this Sept. 15, 2008 file photo police officers chase away a Christian protester protesting against the attack on churches in Mangalore, India. Asked about a surge in anti-Christian violence that has swept India in recent weeks, the Sikh prime minister of this largely Hindu country was adamant in his denunciations: 'We are a secular state. We are a multireligious, multicultural nation,' Manmohan Singh told reporters during a stopover in France. He called the attacks 'acts of national shame.' (AP Photo, File)
