(Open Doors USA)— Preeti and her husband were tied up with ropes and brutally beaten by neighbors in their community for one simple reason: They refused to reject their Christian faith and participate in a local ritual.
When Preeti and her husband told the people in their village that they didn’t want to participate in the ritual because they had left their old gods and found Jesus—it stirred up anger within the community.
The couple reports that a group of 30 to 40 men from the village gathered and chased Preeti and her husband with spears, sticks and swords. At one point, they tried to rape Preeti—partially tearing her clothes—before she escaped.
