(International Christian Concern) — Last Sunday, Christians were seriously injured in an attack by Hindu radicals in Belchori Village in the North Indian State of Jharkhand. The incident took place when eight Christian families from Friends Missionary Prayer Band refused to recant their Christian faith when threatened. At the expense of their faith, five of them were seriously injured.
According to reports from International Christian Concern’s correspondent in India, a mob of more than 100 Hindu radicals along with several villagers attacked the Christians during their worship service on Sunday. The mob beat up the Christians mercilessly angry at their existence in the village.
Pastor Massih (whose name was changed for security reasons), the pastor of the fellowship, while speaking to ICC, said, “the Hindu radicals kicked Christians like footballs, and there were none to rescue the Christians from the hands of Hindu radicals.”
