    • However, Anand Bernad, the Christian member of Madhya Pradesh’s minority commission, told UCA News he initiated the law to protect the interest of Christians in the state.
      He said several Protestant groups sell off common properties without consulting their people, thus impoverishing communities.
      According to him, the legislation will also protect the properties from land encroachers and help people use their income for their community’s welfare better.
