It was on August 25, 2008, that hell broke loose on the Christians of Kandhamal, with the extremists attacking them for the August 23 murder of Hindu leader Swami ‎Lakshmanananda Saraswati, even though Maoist rebels ‎claimed the assassination.

The Pradhan brother and sister who escaped the violence were prevented by Hindu families from returning and rebuilding their home in Mundakanga.  It was here that the two returned for a ceremony of reconciliation and thanksgiving, in which the entire village joined the celebration. | See the full story here… vaticannews.va
