Mission Network News - A prayer group survives attack in Punjab

  • tags: no_tag

    • A mob of fundamentalist Hindu women attacked 12 believers in India's Punjab State. Grand Rapids, Michigan-based Mission India says one of their church planters was leading a day of fasting and prayer in the home of a new Christian. 

      Around 20 women surrounded the group, shouted anti-christian slurs at them, and threw rocks. The meeting's host, Balaram, was hit in the head, and the female-led mob fled when he fell to the ground unconscious. He was rushed to the hospital and required 8 stitches in his head. Other believers also suffered minor injuries.
