One year ago, 50,000 Christians were forced from their homes in Orissa state, India, because of their faith. Three hundred villages were destroyed. Over one hundred and twenty people died. Every few weeks there are further reports of attacks on Christians in the region.
Premier Christian Media has started a petition to the Prime Minister of India, Dr Manmohan Singh urging him to seek justice for Christians who have suffered persecution and help them practice their faith without fear. They hope to raise 50,000 signatures - one for each Christian who has lost their home.
