VIJAYAWADA: Expressing fears over the increasing attacks on Christians, the Association of Integrated Christian Council (AICC) has demanded that the Union and state governments make a special legislation to ensure that Christians feel secure in this country.

Speaking at the meeting held in the city on Thursday, the AICC representatives alleged that attacks on Christians had increased within a month of BJP forming its government at the Centre.

They also demanded that the government set up separate community halls for Christians in urban and rural areas. They also wanted the government to fill all Christian nominated posts and appoint Christians officials as heads of the departments meant for the welfare of the community.  AICC national director Gera Hanock, national secretary Ch David John Abraham, state secretary M Kamalakar Rao and other members attended the meeting.
