I am Sasidharan and my wife is Lalitha. We are doing translation of the Bible into Chetti, our mother tongue in our hometown of Gudalur in Nilgiris and we are also doing a small village ministry. We have 3 children. Among them Karthik is doing +2 (science) and Prasanth (mathes bio). After finishing school, they are going to go to college. We humbly request you to pray for them to get placed in a good college.
Christian woman Asia Bibi may have finally safely exited Pakistan after years on death row after being falsely held on blasphemy charges, but the fight for justice is far from over.
Bibi’s very prison cell is now home to another impoverished Christian woman, and the same Lahore-based attorney, Saif-ul Malook, is representing both the woman and her Christian husband. The pair have been sentenced to death under a questionable conviction of insulting Islam.
“They did not get a fair trial. They are innocent.” – Saif-ul Malook
Shafqat Emmanuel and Shagufta Kauser – who are still waiting for their appeal to be heard by the Lahore High Court (LHC) – were tried and put on death row in April 2014.
Shagufta Kauser is the second woman after Bibi to be ordered capital punishment.

A group of Christians have been beaten and threatened with death as they gathered to pray in southern India.
Religious freedom charity Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) says believers at Praise the Lord Church in Tamil Nadu state were praying together last weekend when 6 men aged between 21 and 38 disrupted their meeting and threatened the church pastor.
The men who have been identified as part of the Nationalist group Hindu Munanni, assaulted members of the congregation after threatening to kill them if they continued to pray.
The hand of one churchgoer was fractured and an elderly woman sustained head injuries in the incident and Bibles from the church were also destroyed by the attackers.
The lead pastor of the church, Philip Rangasamy claims this is the second violent intrusion they have had from the Hindu extremist group in the past 3 months.
