Crisis In India Update
Brothers and Sisters, the issue in India is still very terrible as you know already cause this was posted on the 3rd of September here. . . I am indeed so sad to say that it is bad people are still being killed and Churches Burnt.
Yesterday a very good friend of this blog Alan Pardoe of POD requested that I post this on COH Blog so am posting a link to the site due to it's very graphic nature you may want to view them on the original site CHURCH ON THE ROCK
I also got this piece of news from the Compass News so you grasp how serious an issue this is. . .
Murder, Rape and Arson Continue in India
The unprecedented wave of anti-Christian attacks that began a month ago continued in the past week with more incidents of murder, rape and arson, mostly in the eastern state of Orissa and southern state of Karnataka. Two Christians were also found murdered in the northern state of Uttarakhand.
“The atmosphere in the Kandhamal district of Orissa is still volatile,” an attorney visiting Kandhamal with a team to provide legal aid to victims told Compass. “Yesterday afternoon, we were going to the Raikia area, but as we were about to reach there, we were informed that a mob had attacked a police station and the police had to open fire. We had to flee Kandhamal right away.”
According to The Indian Express, around 2,000 people, including women, surrounded the Raikia police station yesterday to demand the release of two fellow villagers from Masakadia village who had been arrested on charges of arson and rioting.
