Hindu militants forcibly enter two Christian worship services

By March 3, 2008

India (MNN) — Voice of the Martyrs Canada reports that there have been at least two attacks on Christians in the past two weeks.  

In one case, Hindu militants entered a worship gathering at a believer's home by force. They shouted, "Stop conversions" at one man and proceeded to drag him out of the
home. Another man followed to find that 15-20 more militants were waiting outside the home.

These two men were beaten along with three others, causing internal injuries.

In another incident, as many as 125 militants came to a church where 15 believers were beginning a worship service. With drums they shouted, "Stop conversions" and "he who talks in favor of only Hindus will rule the nation."  After the Christians left the building
and locked it down, the militants broke windows and threatened to burn it. Police arrived on the scene, however, and stopped any further destruction. One believer, a college student, was severely beaten as they fled the building.
