The Voice of the Martyrs recently reported a note threatening Christians was posted at a train station in India. The note, from the RSS Hindu radical group, told Christians to convert, leave, or be killed by 2021.

Currently, Hinduism makes up 80.5% of India’s religions. Christianity only accounts for 2.3%. The goal of RSS is to create a unified India under the Hindu religion. However, the group can’t stop the work God is doing.

VOM works in a variety of ways in India to help and enable persecuted Christians continue to share the Gospel. VOM also helps provide these Christians with practical and spiritual relief, fellowship, and encouragement in their projects. But for security reason, not much more can be said.

Still, you can help your persecuted brothers and sisters by interceding for them through prayer. Please pray that their faith will not be shaken but that it will grow stronger under adversity. Pray for their testimony to be seen and for others to know the saving grace extended to them through Christ. Pray for their safety and well-being. And also pray for their stories to be heard across the world, and for others to be encouraged by them.

*India is ranked #17 on the World Watch List (WWL). WWL is a list of the top 50 countries where Christians face the most sever persecution for their faith.


  • Dear Joseph,

    Why don’t Indian high priest talk to pope regarding this issue. Present christian youth are not interested to stay in India everybody is going to abroad and settling there peacefully. I suggest to govt to give free visa to Christians in India to go away. and by 2030 no Christians wants to live in India.

  • All Christians who believe in Lord Jesus Christ must pray to God to give our hindu brothers to a heart of love and understanding. All Christians at least once in a week fast and pray for the deliverance of all Christians of the world. If we pray surely God will make every one a Paul who was touched by Jesus himself.

    Will USA give Christians in India Refugee status ?

  • this can’t happen our Northeastern States of India are Christian majority. There are just crazy.

    Dear friends leaving to USA is not the final solution for the Christian. He is in control of all creation

    (Colossians 1:16-17) For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: (17) And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

    (1 Samuel 2:8) He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD’S, and he hath set the world upon them.
