BIG BREAKING NEWS – CHRISTIAN DOCTOR – CRIMINAL CHARGES: – Christian doctor working on COVID program faces criminal charges for saying ‘Jesus heals’ [#ChristianPersecution #IndiaPersecution] 05/31
A young Christian doctor in India’s central state of Madhya Pradesh has been suspended from a government program to help combat the deadly second wave of COVID-19 and is facing criminal charges for telling families to pray to Jesus if they get infected with the virus.
Dr. Sandhya Tiwari was suspended from the Madhya Pradesh state’s “Kill Corona” program and is facing criminal charges, possibly under the state’s anti-conversion law, the U.S.-based persecution watchdog group International Christian Concern reported.
As part of the program, the doctor visited homes in the Bajna area of Ratlam District on May 22, 2021 and distributed Christian leaflets along with a recommended diet chart.
Dr. Sandhya Tiwari also encouraged families to pray to Jesus for healing.
Activists from India’s chief Hindu nationalist umbrella organization, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), objected to it.
One of the men there made a short video of himself interrogating the doctor.
