Coronavirus is getting even worse in India. But for Indian Christians, it’s only half the story.
Appalling Christian persecution hasn’t stopped during the pandemic. It’s fuelled by Hindu extremist propaganda and lies, and Christians are attacked, discriminated against, rejected and even murdered just because of their faith.
Today, the Indian church urgently needs your help to keep going.
Indian Christians are facing an existential threat. Hindu extremists use anti-Christian propaganda to fuel systematic violence. Everyday life is an excruciating struggle for Indian Christians.
You can stand for truth by sending Nigel Adams, Minister for Asia, a powerful video about this violence – and asking him to take action.
Destructive Lies: Disinformation, speech that incites violence and discrimination against religious minorities in India is a new report commissioned by the charity Open Doors and independently conducted by researchers from the London School of Economics and Political Science.
The report is based on extensive research and field interviews with Christians and Muslims across India.
Christians in India are urgently asking for our prayers as they find themselves caught between two crises: pandemic and persecution. There is much to pray into, but also many things to be grateful for.
Thank you for joining with us in this month of prayer – your prayers make such a difference and mean so much to your persecuted family.
Your support helps persecuted Christians continue to courageously follow Jesus.
Together, we can reach those where persecution hits hardest.
