Pastor beaten up and arrested for praying, Madhya Pradesh
ICC Note:
This brief report, released as the incident was still unfolding, details an attack by a large mob on a Christian pastor who was apparently visiting a family that had requested prayer. According to the report he was then taken to a police station and arrested under false charges. It is not uncommon for Christians in some parts of India to not only be attacked and beaten by angry mobs, but then to be arrested under trumped up charges while the instigators of the attack go unpunished.
