Radical Hindus attack, arrest Indian Christian pastor
On September 7th, a mob of radical Hindu nationalists attacked Pastor Raju Manji and the 25 Christians who gathered for prayers. He was arrested on false accusations of forced conversion in India’s Uttar Pradesh state, reports International Christian Concern. Since late June, he is one of 71 pastors and other believers who have been arrested.
His wife, Nuri Manji, said, “I was broken when I received the phone call that let me know my husband was in jail.”
Pastor Manji leads eight to 10 congregations in different villages. His wife said, “I have seen God working in the lives of people and people testify they have been healed through prayers.”
