(Compass) – A 25-year-old man, Kokala Govardhan, has confessed to the killing of Pastor K. Daniel and Pastor Isaac Raju in Hyderabad , southern India . Both murders occurred in May; police arrested Govardhan in late June. Govardhan told reporters that Dara Singh, who orchestrated the murder of Australian missionary Graham Staines in January 1998, was his inspiration. Christian groups have now called for Dara Singh’s life sentence to be changed to the death penalty as a warning to extremists. Staines ’ widow, however, has maintained her stand of total forgiveness. “If we don’t forgive men of the wrong that they do, then how can we be forgiven?” she said in a recent BBC interview.
