Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday said security at churches will be stepped up and asserted that any discrimination on the basis of religion will not be tolerated. He also said an impartial inquiry has been ordered into the recent incidents of attacks on churches in the capital.

A delegation of Christian leaders met Singh and informed him that five churches were attacked in the last two-and-a-half months in Delhi.

“Police has done nothing. They have described the incidents as simple thefts, burglary and trespassing. We told the Home Minister that these were not simple incidents but attacks on our religious places,” delegation member John Dayal said.
