We're deviating from the issue -- the Gujarat govt is kicking the nuns out, IMHO, purely because they are Christian. That's wrong. period.

I'm not sure.

Minaben Patel, 81 years and a Hindu, has worked with the sisters for the past 50 years. She said the "real aim" of not renewing the nuns' contract could be to take over the land. Thanks to the development of the city, the value of the property has increased. She said there was no one ready to replace the sisters. "The government may gain some land, but they will lose these wardens of the poor permanently,” she said.

I'd say we need more sources for this incident.
