Worship Service Disrupted in Madhya Pradesh, India

ICC Note:
Hindu extremists attack non-Western missionaries.

The Voice of the Martyrs Canada (1/24/07) – A worship service in Kanpur, Madhya Pradesh was disrupted within the past week when members of the Hindu organizations Bajrang Dal and VHP stormed the meeting. According to a report from the Global Council of Indian Christians (GCIC), the militants appeared to be targeting foreign missionaries from Japan who were present at the meeting. The pulpit and sound system were destroyed and those attending the meeting were pushed and abused for approximately two hours before police arrived.

A police report has been filed against the Hindu attackers and the GCIC reports that the local media has condemned the attack.

Pray that these believers will remain steadfast in the faith (1 Peter 5:8-10). Thank the Lord that no one was seriously injured in this attack. Ask that the Lord will enable Christians in India to continue to lovingly and boldly proclaim the gospel (Ephesians 6:18-20).
