BRUTAL ATTACK: Christian familybrutally attacked by radical Hindu Nationalists for refusing to deny Christian faith [#IndiaPersecution ChristianPersecution] 07/07
On July 1, 2020 an Indian Christian family was brutally attacked by radical Hindu Nationalists for refusing to deny their Christian faith in Mohanbeda village (Chhattisgarh State).
Laxman (18 years old) and his older sister (21 years old) were seriously injured during the attack.
Their house was ransacked, and their land taken away by Hindu radicals.
According to Tunaviram Markham, a Christian from the same congregation, the entire village surrounded Laxman’s house and started throwing stones until they broke in and beat the family members.
“I came to visit this family when I heard about the attack on Laxman family. There was nobody to help; also, the police are not allowing outsiders into the village. It was pathetic to see helplessness (of) the only Christian family.”
– Tunaviram Markham
The family was experiencing a social boycott where Christians are not allowed to take nor drink water from a public hand pump.
They were also denied any association with non-Christians.
The victim’s family had requested on January 14, 2020 that the District Administration investigate.
However, they did not pay any attention and the police were biased.
As religious attacks against Christians increase in the region since the COVID-19 lockdown, 3 dozen police are patrolling the village.
They are not allowing the Christian victims to meet or talk to outsiders.
The police have even confiscated their cellphones.
