Pope John Paul II in India
DEL99110704 - 07 NOVEMBER 1999 - NEW DELHI, INDIA: Pope John Paul II celebrates a special Mass at sprawling Jawaharlal Nehru stadium in New Delhi with tens of thousands of Christians of India, November 7. The pontiff called for greater evangelization of Asia. The papal visit to India has been clouded by irate protests by angry Hindu zealots who allege that Christian missionaries are inducing illiterate and poor tribal Hindus to convert to Christianity. jr/str UPI
