copies of a book called "The Life History of Jesus Christ" were burned on
June 18 by Hindu militants in central Karnataka who claimed the books were
being used to convert school children to Christianity. When the militants
received word that the books were to be distributed in local schools, they
went to the Block Education Office in Sirsi, Karnataka to protest.
Discovering no books there, they learned that the books were being stored in
the office in Siddapur, a city south of Sirsi. They took the books from the
Siddapur office, brought them to Sirsi and burned them.
