Persecution Update March 2011: India

(Used with permission from Compass Direct)

The persecution of Christians in India continues to spread across the country.  Last month in the state of Rajasthan, Pastor Ninama, age 65, was abducted, stripped, and beaten by radical Hindus, and had to be hospitalized.  The reason for the attack was that he had been falsely accused of forcing Hindus to become Christians.  Twelve years ago Pastor Ninama came to Christ from Hinduism and has been faithfully serving as pastor of a house church.  Please pray for God’s grace for Pastor Ninama, as well as other pastors who stand for Christ in India, a country that is becoming increasingly hostile to the Cross.
