The main reasons for the attacks on churches were circulation of literature with "insulting attitude" against Hindus and attempts at conversion of Hindus to Christianity, stated the panel.

The commission was set up to initiate investigation over the attacks on churches in the coastal town of Mangalore and in Udupi, Chikamagalur, Kolar, Chikkaballapur, Bellary and Davangere districts in 2008.
