India: Hindu Extremists Pass Laws Restricting Christianity

Prophecy Sign:  Christian Persecution


It's not just Islam that is persecuting Christians but Hindu's in India are also doing whatever they can to chase Christians from their midst.  As always, please pray for persecuted Christians around the world.

In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 2 Timothy 3:12-13 NIV

India: Hindu Extremists Pass Laws Restricting Christianity
Christians in India are facing threats as Hindu extremists have taken over village councils to pass laws restricting religions other than Hindu. The laws reportedly make Christian prayer, meetings, and literature illegal, and non-Hindu missionaries are now banned in 50 towns.  Though India’s constitution guarantees citizens freedom of religion, state government authorities in Chhattisgarh have not intervened with the new laws. Authorities maintain that they are monitoring the situation. Church leaders say that Christians have already been affected. At the most extreme, Christians have been denied access to food and water, or evicted from villages.  Aneesh Andrews, Methodist district superintendent for the area said, “In some places, the passing of the resolution has been followed by attacks on pastors and pulling down of village churches.”
