PLEASE PRAY: Christian preachers beaten for praying for sick [#IndiaPersecution #ChristianPersecution] 08/26
2 members of a neo-Christian sect were allegedly beaten a Hindu radical group when they prayed over a sick person in a village near Chatra town in the eastern Indian state of Jharkhand.
1 Lakhan, a member of the Gospel Echoing Missionary Society (GEMS), on August 22, 2020 took preachers Sanjeet and Siddharth to Kharik, a village around 7 km from Chatra, to pray for his relative Ramdev, who has been sick for 1 1/2 years.
When the 2 missionaries were praying for Ramdev and his family, a group of Bajrang Dal members came 11 am and took them out.
The Hindu radicals then started beating the 2 Christian preachers with sticks and kicked them.
Sanjeet was injured in his head, back, hands, and legs.
Siddharth’s left hand and thigh too sustained injuries.
Sanjeet now has difficulty in hearing.
The attackers also snatched away copies of the Bible and song books and Siddharth’s mobile phone.
The 2 preachers went to the Chatra Superintendent of Police to lodge a complaint.
The 2 were sent for medical check-up.
