In the final month of 2021, there has been a huge spike in attacks on Christians by vigilantes, including several by Hindutva groups.

From a mob vandalising a Christian school in Madhya Pradesh, to attacks on churches in Karnataka, from a Jesus statue broken in Haryana to Christmas celebrations disrupted in Assam and Santa effigies burned in UP, the list goes on.


As these incidents continue, here is a special Quint Lab interactive that allows you to locate these incidents on a map and helps you find out more details about them.
