It's a good thing she didn't see this before I went to India:
Angry Hindu youths beat three American missionaries and tried to kidnap one as they held a bible studies class in Bombay, police said on Monday.

About 30 or 40 men attacked the three, part of a group of eight, on Saturday night because they thought the missionaries were trying to convert Hindus in the Indian financial capital.

The three were treated for bruises and cuts at a hospital but were not seriously injured, police said.

Not pretty, but I think generally if you're careful about what you're doing and where you're doing it things will be fine. I met with no hostility at all during my time in Hyderabad.
