Reports of Islamic extremists attacking people of different faiths in South Asia have been growing in recent years, resulting in beatings and even beheadings, the Christian Post reports. In March alone in India, a Christian church was attacked, an elderly widow beaten and a 22-year-old woman driven from her village for giving thanks to Jesus. In neighboring Pakistan, the religious persecution is just as bad, where Christians are targeted even by government officials. Islamic militants in Pakistan have also targeted Sikhs, with recent incidents of kidnappings and beheadings. Attacks by Muslims against religious minorities are so common that they are at most condemned by authorities, and rarely punished -- and violence continues to spread throughout the region.
