India– According to Morning Star News, a small community of Christians in India’s Odisha state were attacked by a mob of animists trained and incited by radical Hindu nationalists. As a result of the attack, several Christians were injured and the church the Christian community used for worship was destroyed.

On December 13, Morning Star News reports a mob of animists attack a small Christian community in Chichima village. According to the Christian victims, the mob attacked while they were gathered in the small thatched structure they used as a church.

An influential man wielding an axe demanded to know why the Christians abandoned their tribal religion. When the Christians refused to leave their new faith, the mob, led by the man wielding the axe, attacked.

“They manhandled the Christians, damaged an adjacent Christian home, and broke the thatched structure with the axe,” Pastor Bibudhan Pradhan told Morning Star News. “They threatened to chase the Christians out of their homes and the village if they reported the matter to the police.”

According to Morning Star News, the entire church structure was destroyed by the mob. Another Christian had his mobile phone destroyed after he was discovered to be recording the mob’s attack.

Local Christians are afraid to report the incident to local police. The mob threatened to drive them out of the village if the matter was reported to police. To date, no action has been taken against the attackers or to provide security for the Christians of Chichima village.

Indian Pastor Bound and Beaten for Refusal to Contribute to Tribal Rituals

Published

on

India – According to Morning Star News, a pastor in India’s Jharkhand state was bound and publicly beaten by fellow villagers after he refused to contribute funds to the ritual worship of tribal deities. Despite this intense persecution, the pastor remained steadfast in his faith.

On January 24, Pastor Lakshman Oraon was called before the elders of Jungur village, located in the Latehar District of Jharkhand. The elders of the village demanded he contribute funds to the ritual worship of the village’s tribal deities. When he refused, his arms were tired behind his back and he was beaten.

“When they tied me and started kicking me, I was not at all angry,” Pastor Oraon told Morning Star News. “The Lord reminded me of the verses in Matthew 5:11-12. I received great strength from these words. There was a smile on my face all through.”

After the beating, village elders threatened to excommunicate Pastor Oraon and the other Christians of the village if they continued to refuse to contribute to the tribal rituals.

Facing expulsion, Pastor Oraon reached out to the Alliance Defending Freedom India (ADF). ADF contacted the local police station. Officers called Pastor Oraon and the village elders to the station to work out the situation.

“At the police station, we were asked to give the money, and we gave it,” Pastor Oraon told Morning Star News. “We are praying for the salvation of village leaders and the devotees of tribal deities. The police assured us that they will be a phone call away if any problem arises, and that we will not face any troubles from the villagers after giving the money.”
