Persecution Update, May 2019 - INDIA


In India, non-Hindu citizens have seen increasing religious oppression over the five years that Prime Minister Modi has been in office. Under Modi, an advocate of a radical view of Hinduism, the discrimination and attacks against Christians have increased greatly. This past February Anant Ram Gand (age 40), a new believer in Jesus for only nine months, was abducted from his home and decapitated by radical Hindus. Please pray for his wife and five children. Also pray for the national elections underway this month in India, which will determine whether Prime Minister Modi is re-elected for five more years and who is elected to many regional offices. Pray for our brothers and sisters to have grace to endure a climate of religious hostility.
