Hindu activists attacked Loreto Convent School in Lucknow Sunday, prompting Catholic officials to close 16 schools and other institutions—both as a sign of protest and for safety concerns. The attacks came after Indian newspapers reported that a "séance" had occurred at the school. "A visiting spiritual healer claimed Jesus Christ had entered his body to bless those present," the BBC summarized. "Many of the students later said they were scared, and some of the girls even fainted during the session." School officials say students just passed out from heat during a prayer session and that there was nothing resembling a séance.For more information on this, here are some links.
