Pastor Beaten by Mob, Church Set on Fire as Violent Christian Persecution Escalates in India
India has seen a sudden increase in attacks on Christians as more people are circulating since the COVID-19 lockdown was lifted.
According to International Christian Concern (ICC), eight separate attacks have taken place in two weeks involving radical Hindu nationalist groups that are physically assaulting Christians and damaging their property.
The most recent incident occurred on June 21 where a pastor was praying for a sick person in Kolonguda village.
A mob of 150 people broke into Pastor Suresh Rao's house, then dragged him out and severely beat him.
