Delhi Police has launched a Facebook page to address grievances of Christian institutions and individuals in the wake of a series of attacks on Christian institutions in the city.

Last month, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had also said that his government will not allow any religious group to incite hatred and will strongly act against any religious violence.

According to Delhi Police, the new Facebook page 'Delhi Police Minority Brethren' has been created on February 22 and it can can be used for posting problems related to any institution or school. On the page timeline, Delhi Police wrote, "Dear Christian brothers and sisters, this page has been designed by Delhi Police to add a forum for all Christian people in Delhi to put across their views regarding law and order situation in Delhi with special reference to the security of our churches and educational institutions."

DCP Joy Tirkey has been nominated as nodal officer for the redressal of the problems of minority community. Police claimed that security has been beefed up at all the churches and frequency of patrolling in the area has been increased.

The PM had also recently summoned Delhi Police Commissioner B S Bassi in the wake of vandalisation of a prominent Christian school in South Delhi's Vasant Vihar area and directed him to come down hard against those involved in such attacks.
