Thousands of victims of religious atrocities from India entered Canada illegally

Atrocities against minorities have been on the rise all over the world. This can be gauged from the claims of about 60,000 asylum seekers who entered Canada through illegal means. A report in the Vancouver Sun indicates that among them were more than 6,800 immigrants from India and more than 95 percent of them indicated there was a threat to their lives from people in the religious majority in India as their reason for seeking asylum in Canada. Canada Border Services Agency officers usually reject such claims of religious persecution.
