    Virtue Online: “The ‘most violent anti-Christian pogrom of the early 21st century,’ though, occurred in the northeastern Indian state of Orissa in 2008. Perhaps 500 Christians died in multiple riots, often hacked to death with machetes by Hindu radicals who also destroyed 5,000 homes and 350 churches and schools. Yet authorities resisted effective judicial action and even threatened false accusations against victims, lawyer Tehmina Arora from the Indian branch of Alliance Defending Freedom criticized. From 827 filed complaints, only 512 charges resulted, leading to 75 cases with 477 convictions, primarily for petty property offenses; only nine convictions involved killings.”

    Live Action News: “The University’s actions do shed light on why it makes the list for ‘Ten Worst Colleges for Free Speech,’ but what, if anything, they will do to rectify the situation remains to be seen. BSFL has retained the counsel of Alliance Defending Freedom and, with their attorney’s assistance, sent a letter to the University requesting an acknowledgment of the wrongdoing, and a replacement of the poster in the next available display slot. The University has yet to respond.”
