Story number 5 for 18 Jun 2001

(India)–And, Open Doors reports the Indian government plans to review a controversial 1971 law. It requires all Indians hosting foreigners to report their presence to the police. Believers say the potential for harassment is immense. If an Indian fails to comply, he may face jail time, a fine, or both. Open Doors adds that the order could also hinder the activities of churches and Christians with contacts abroad, especially in India’s current climate of increasing Hindu militancy.
