Pastor in India Perseveres amid Persecution by Hindu Extremists

Friday, September 1, 2017

(Worthy News) - A band of Hindu extremists who had snuck into a house-church service beat a pastor with steel rods and sticks, one of them yelling that they would stop if he shouted, “Hail, Lord Ram [Jai Sri Ram]!”

“I remained mum,” pastor Harjot Singh Sethi, 26, told Morning Star News. “I did not even squeal from pain. My mouth was shut as they beat me.”

He suffered serious head and leg injuries in the Aug. 16 attack in Dabli Rathan village, Hanumangarh District, in Rajasthan state.

The young pastor and eight other Christians were attacked on the terrace of the home of Madan Lal Arora, where 20 people had gathered for worship. Police Station House Officer Jagdish Prasad said the assailants were members of the Hindu extremist group Bajrang Dal. [ Source (Read More...) ]

  1. Finally, a story of real persecution of Christians, or at least, we can hope so.

    Why, though, is it important that he did not even make a sound as Pastor was beat? That makes it somehow more righteous unto God? He is equating himself with Jesus not saying a word in his defense when beat and then crucified?

    Well, perhaps it is an Indian thing. Or perhaps it is a "china thing" where they too often believe God loves for them to suffer and seek it as much as not.

    We are all sinners, God takes no pleasure (unlike US and now UK Psychologists) in the sufferings of his saints. He will recompense His enemies (our enemies) for the sufferings they cause to us. This is how Satan hurts God, it is the only way Satan can still hart God's heart, by hurting His kids.
