Terrorized by the humungous number of violent attacks against the Christians in India in 2017, and especially in Madhya Pradesh, religious leaders of the Hindu, Muslim and other religions have staged strong protest in support of the minority community, demanding that the government take strict and urgent action against the miscreants responsible for such chaos.

Acharya Sushil Goswami and Indore Shahar Quazi Mohammad Ishrat Ali led a number of religious leaders of Madhya Pradesh under the banner of All India Catholic Union (AICU). They protested communal and extremist forces targeting the Christian and other minority groups.

A memorandum was prepared to be submitted to the state governor, chief minister and home minister, expressing concern that the state had seen 25 serious incidents of violence last year.
