ICC Note: A Christian family was attacked and threatened by the police in India. The victims had gathered in their home with other friends for worship and prayer, but the authorities told them they couldn’t pray in their home and had come to arrest them.
8/14/2018 India (Morning Star) – About an hour before midnight on July 31, three policemen and a Hindu neighbor barged into a Christian woman’s house in northern India and ordered her and her husband to either give them money or go to jail.
The couple was immersed in prayer with their children and two other Christians in their home in Uttar Pradesh state’s Sarai Gunja village, in Jaunpur District. They worshipped in their house every night, and they had been fasting for three days, said the Christian woman, Anita Rajak.
