Indian government says church attacks not political

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India's Hindu nationalist government has denied that "communal" politics were behind a series of attacks on churches and the rape of a nun in recent months, as it seeks to quell rising concerns among religious minorities.

"We have found that all these incidents were law and order problems. Not a single case was carried out by the majority community ... nor was it of political nature or communal," Finance Minister Arun Jaitley told the NDTV news channel late on Tuesday.
