Indian church protected pastor from Hindus in “human fence”
On November 7, Pastor Chandrakanth and his congregation were attacked by a mob of 40 radical Hindu nationalists as they gathered for worship in India’s Karnataka state, reports International Christian Concern.
Pastor Chandrakanth explained, “The congregation stood before me as a human fence. Otherwise, [the Hindus] would have killed me. The radicals want to wipe out Christianity from this area and they think it is easy under the BJP government, presently ruling the state.”
After an hour, police arrived on the scene and took control of the situation. However, they filed a case against Pastor Chandrakanth for disturbing the peace. He was told to appear before the local magistrate on November 13.
On the day of the hearing, 16 pastors went to the local magistrate’s office for peace talks on behalf of the Christian community and Pastor Chandrakanth. However, when they arrived, the group of pastors was also falsely accused of disturbing the peace.
Proverbs 12:17 says, “An honest witness tells the truth, but a false witness tells lies.”
