Radical Hindus led 10 violent attacks against Christians in India
Since late June, Christians in the area have suffered at least 30 incidents of persecution. And police have detained over 70 pastors accused of making converts. Radical Hindu nationalists use the state’s anti-conversion law to target Christian leaders.
William Stark with International Christian Concern said persecution is spiking after the new anti-conversion law, and Christians fear for their safety just to go to church.
STARK: “Just the fear factor that comes from that. You don’t know join the church. If you are going to be the next community that has a mob show up at your door, break in, beat the pastor, beat everybody, accuse you falsely have some sort of crime, and then you end up in jail for 10 to 11 days and have to deal with police harassment.”
