Madhya Pradesh(AsiaNews)– Police in Satna, Madhya Pradesh, arrested on Sunday three evangelical Christians for forced conversion and insulting Hindu religious sentiment.
V.A. Anthony of the Brethren Assembly Church, his wife Prabha and another woman were taken into custody as they returned from Aber, where they go every week to lead prayers. They were jailed after their demand for bail was turned down.
Sajan K George, president of the Global Council of Indian Christians (GCIC), slammed the arrests. He told AsiaNews that the three Christians are innocent people “who were detained based on false allegations of forced conversions.”
