Hindu Saffron Terrorists Form A Mob And Tries To Attack Catholic Hospital With A Bulldozer And Rocks, Catholic Priests And Hospital Staff Form A Line And Stop The Mob, The Police Come And Charge The Priests With “Rioting” And “Criminal Intimidation”

Hindu Saffron Terrorists Form A Mob And Tries To Attack Catholic Hospital With A Bulldozer And Rocks, Catholic Priests And Hospital Staff Form A Line And Stop The Mob, The Police Come And Charge The Priests With “Rioting” And “Criminal Intimidation”

Hindu terrorists formed a mob and attacked a Catholic hospital in India, throwing rocks at it and attempting to ram a bulldozer into it. Priests and hospital staff came and formed a human shield and  protected the hospital. After, police came and charged the priests with “rioting” and “criminal intimidation” for standing up to the terrorists:

Four Catholic priests have been charged with rioting and criminal intimidation in India’s Madhya Pradesh state over a land dispute involving a hard-line Hindu group.

The priests of Ujjain Diocese resisted an attempt by a Hindu group to take over a piece of land in front of a Catholic Church-run hospital in Ujjain, a city with a Hindu temple and a site for pilgrims.

“No one has been arrested yet,” an official of Madhav Nagar police station, where the case has been registered, told ucanews.com on Feb. 1.

The dispute revolves around a plot of land adjacent to Pushpa Mission Hospital, a 44-year-old facility with 200 beds. Hospital authorities say the local civic body gave the public land to the hospital for use as a parking area and to maintain its greenery.

However, some members of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the pro-Hindu party that runs the state government, attempted to take over the land on Jan. 27, accusing the church of illegally occupying the site. However, the church obtained a “stay order” to maintain the status quo from the Madhya Pradesh state High Court.

Gagan Singh, who led the crowd and claimed to be the owner of the public land, is the assistant to the local BJP parliamentarian for the area.

Church officials say charges against them were framed under political influence.

Tension intensified after revenue officials arrived to measure and demarcate the land. A crowd also claimed a portion of the land.

Attempts were made to demolish the boundary wall despite resistance from church officials, diocesan public relations officer Father Antony Nirappel told ucanews.com.

As priests and hospital staff created a human shield to block a bulldozer and called police, the crowd began to throw stones at the hospital. Police arrived and dispersed the crowd.

“But soon we were informed that police have charged four of us with rioting and criminal intimidation of people,” said Father Nirappel, one of the accused.

He said it was “just another instance of harassment” in the state, where Christians regularly face violence and harassment at the hands of Hindu groups who want to make India a Hindu-alone nation.

The accused include hospital director Anthony Pulickamandapam, who said the hospital has ownership documents for “every inch of land we possess” and a receipt from the civic body for paying mandatory fees to use the land, he said.

The hospital has been using the land for at least four decades. “We do not know how an owner has suddenly come to claim public land,” said Father Nirappel, adding that they “only want a competent authority to certify its rightful owner.”

Police are guarding the area to maintain the status quo after Singh threatened to organize a Hindu religious ritual to assert his ownership over the land.

The case has been posted for a hearing on Feb. 5 in the High Court.

Father Nirappel said the case is part of a well-organized plan by Hindu groups to tarnish the image of Christians by portraying them as law breakers.

The state of 72 million people, where Christians form less than one percent, has a history of anti-Christian violence.

It witnessed 21 violent attacks on Christians and hundreds of cases of harassment, threats and intimidation by Hindu groups from January to November 2017, according to data published by voluntary group Alliance Defending Freedom. (source)

Christians In India Say They Are ‘In Fear For Their Lives Because What Was Once Extreme Persecution Is Now Normal’ As Hindu Terrorists Threaten And Attack Christians With Impunity

Christians In India Say They Are ‘In Fear For Their Lives Because What Was Once Extreme Persecution Is Now Normal’ As Hindu Terrorists Threaten And Attack Christians With Impunity

Christians in India say they are in fear for their lives in light of growing Hindu nationalism. Saying that what once was considered extreme is now normal, Christians are under constant harassment and attack from Hindu terrorists who brag with impunity they want to force the Christians to convert to Hinduism or die:

IN the first week of January, a mob of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) members tried to storm St. Mary’s College in Vidisha, Madhya Pradesh, to conduct an aarati (Hindu ritual) in praise of “Bharat Mata”. The mob clashed with the police and said that it wanted to promote patriotism among students. The college director, Father Shaju Devassy, reportedly said that it was a symbolic attempt to impose Hindu dominance over minorities under the garb of promoting patriotism. It challenged the constitutional right of religious and ethnic minorities to own and manage institutions to help their communities, he added.

According to Alliance Defending Freedom, a United States-based Christian non-profit organisation, there were 21 violent attacks on Christians and hundreds of cases of harassment, threats and intimidation at the hands of Hindu groups from January to November in 2017 in Madhya Pradesh. Christians constitute fewer than 1 per cent of the State’s 72 million people.

According to Open Doors USA, a “non-denominational mission supporting persecuted Christians worldwide”, in 2017 India jumped to the 11th position in the 50 most dangerous countries for Christians; it was at the 15th position in the previous year “amid the continued rise of Hindu nationalism”. The first six months of 2017 witnessed 410 incidents of persecution against Christians, compared with 441 incidents for the entire previous year. Some 40 incidents were reported a month on average, according to Open Doors USA. These included pastors being beaten, churches being burnt and Christians being harassed. “While the source of persecution for Christians in India depends on their location within the country, most of it comes from Hindu radical groups. Because Hindu radicals view Christians as outsiders, they experience increased persecution. These radicals are intent on cleansing the nation of both Islam and Christianity, employing violence to this end. The government continues to look away when religious minorities are attacked, indicating violence may only increase,” Open Doors USA said.

M.S. Golwalkar, the second “Supreme Leader” of the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS), had famously said that “non-Hindu people in Hindustan must either adopt the Hindu culture and language, must learn to respect and revere Hindu religion, must entertain no idea but the glorification of the Hindu religion, that is they must not only give up their attitude of intolerance and ingratitude towards this land and its age-long tradition but must also cultivate the positive attitude of love and devotion instead; in one word they must cease to be foreigners or may stay in the country wholly subordinated to the Hindu nation claiming nothing, deserving no privileges, far less any preferential treatment not even citizen’s rights.”

Hindus who converted to Christianity bore the brunt of most of the attacks and were constantly under pressure to return to the Hindu fold, Open Doors U.K. said. “Ghar wapsi”, or homecoming, was used as a tool to bring them back to Hinduism.

Coercive means, such as dragging them to a nearby temple, performing rituals and smearing them with cow dung or urine for purification, were also employed.

Freedom of religion is enshrined in the Constitution of India, but States such as Gujarat, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Chhattisgarh, and Arunachal Pradesh passed their own anti-conversion laws.

In Jharkhand, Christian organisations under the banner of Rashtriya Isai Mahasangh (RIM) submitted a memorandum to the Governor against the government’s anti-conversion Bill, stating that the proposed Bill was “aimed at harassing the Church and missionaries”.

The RIM memorandum said that Section 5 of the Bill made it mandatory to get permission from the Deputy Commissioner in advance before performing any conversion. The Christian organisations said that this was against constitutional provisions of the right to privacy and the right to practise one’s religion. It was widely felt that the law was used to register cases against Christians. The RIM is often accused of large-scale evangelising and conversion of Hindus, especially tribal people. It asked the government its basis for such a claim, stating that it if it were indeed true, the number of Christians would have risen much above the current 2.3 per cent of the population.

According to Open Doors U.K., at least eight Christians were killed last year and nearly 24,000 physically assaulted. “As a result, the level of fear and uncertainty among the majority of Christians was increasing,” it said.

Sunday sermons in a church in central Delhi revolved around taking stock of the increasing violence against people of the faith. “On an average, 10 churches were burnt and one person of the Christian faith was killed in India over the past year,” said a pastor while addressing the congregation. Each person who was part of organising a public event recently was individually targeted, he added.

Soon after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) came to power, two churches in the national capital were attacked—one was gutted in a fire while holy objects in another were desecrated. As Christians protested outside the Sacred Heart Cathedral and marched towards Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s residence, the police detained them. The police initially blamed the fire on faulty wiring, but after the protests they registered a first information report against unknown persons. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has not made any statement on the violence against Christians but has instead said that there is no persecution of minority communities, Muslim or Christian.

Open Doors USA has classified the persecution level in India as “extreme”. According to its profile of persecution, 86.5 per cent of the incidents involved direct violence, 77 per cent was around disruption of church life, 79 per cent community life, 76 per cent family life and 75 per cent private life. Apart from physical violence or beatings, other forms of persecution were also employed. Pastors were targeted and forced to move out of the community or village. Social boycotts were imposed where Christians were not allowed to draw water from wells, buy ration from local stores, or keep a job.

In September 2016, stones and countrymade bombs were thrown inside Christ Church in Lakhimpur Kheri district of Uttar Pradesh by men on motorbikes, damaging window panes and furniture. Last Christmas, carol singers were attacked and Christmas celebrations disrupted in many places.

According to the Evangelical Fellowship of India, a national alliance of evangelical Christians, 14 incidents of persecution were reported in November alone. On November 1, 2017, five Christian families of Mura village in Dhamtari district of Chhattisgarh were socially boycotted by the village council. They had earlier been threatened by the villagers to stop participating in Christian activities and renounce their Christian beliefs. As they did not pay heed to these warnings, the village council decided to deny them access to drinking water and essential commodities from the village market and blocked access to food rations. The growing tensions brought the Superintendent of Police to the village, who ordered the Christian families to immediately stop conducting all prayer services.

On November 4, in Haryana’s Faridabad district, RSS activists barged into a Christian meeting at the New Industrial Township and accused those present there of running a conversion racket. Before the incident, the pastors had requested for protection and permission from the local police but none had come. On the same day, in Sathyamangalam taluk of Erode district, Tamil Nadu, Pastor K.S. Jaisujanth of India Every Home Crusade was summoned to the Bangalaputhur police station on the basis of a complaint filed by some RSS activists against him. The police questioned him and ordered him to stop all Christian prayer services he had been conducting in the area.

Similarly, incidents of threats by Hindu groups to pastors and believers to stop worship, in connivance with the State administration and the police force, were reported from Morappur village of Dharmapuri district, Tamil Nadu; Gabitwada village of Uttara Kannada district, Karnataka; Ward 2 of Lanji town in Balaghat, Madhya Pradesh; Ahladpur village of Kaushambi, Uttar Pradesh; and Balod and Bhilai Charoda of Durg district, Chhattisgarh.

Unrelated incidents were also used to fan communal fires. On September 15, a mob attacked St. Anthony’s Convent School in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh, after an 11-year-old boy committed suicide. Several schools and missionaries in Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh recently came under attack. Bishop Gerald Almeida of Jabalpur told Union of Catholic Asian News that the attacks were part of an organised campaign by Hindu nationalist groups to tarnish the image of Christians and also involved false accusations against missionaries.

The National Christian Federation counted over 20 attacks on Christian schools across north India. Many incidents are not reported for fear of a backlash.

Nityanand Rai, president of the Bihar BJP unit, while speaking at a function in Patna on August 8 to honour Ministers of the coalition government, said that the “sound of ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’ should replace azaan from mosques and sounds of bells from churches”. After the statement became controversial, he backtracked and said: “I said that the sound of Bharat Mata ki Jai and Vande Mataram should come from mosque and church and did not mean in place of azaan and bell.”

The Christian leadership has been vocal against the persecution. In an open letter to Catholic and Protestant leaders, 101 Christian theologians, academics and members of different organisations expressed concern over Hindu nationalism and called upon the community to safeguard pluralism and fight fringe elements targeting Christians, Muslims and other minorities. “What used to be fringe has now become mainstream,” the letter said. “In unison with members of all faiths, ideologies, we should marshal India’s tremendous spiritual resources in consolidating peace, resolving conflicts and infusing a sense of values in the body politic,” it said.

India’s largest and oldest forum of lay Catholics, the All India Catholic Union (AICU), urged President Ram Nath Kovind to initiate action against “hate mongers” who polarise society against religious minorities. Responding to the June conclave of Hindu organisations in Goa, where sentiments of establishing a Hindu Rashtra were expressed, the union released a statement denouncing the “hate speeches that emanated” from the conclave and said that such talk further vitiated the already “surcharged atmosphere, and aggravated the communal polarisation in the country….The politics of the cow has targeted Muslims and other communities whose food habits and economy depended on the trade in bovines. Its ramifications have not been fully understood, and AICU fears they will irretrievably damage the economic health of the farmers and the poor”.

In June 2017, Christians in Surat, Gujarat, protested against a Class IX Hindi textbook published by the State Board that referred to Jesus Christ as a “hevaan” or demon. Chapter 16, titled “Bharatiya sanskriti mein guru-shishya sambandh” (teacher-student relationship in Indian culture), said, “Is sambandh me hevaan Isa ka ek kathan sada smaraniya hai (In this context, one statement of demon Jesus is always memorable). Jesus Christ was quoted as saying, ‘My followers are much greater than I am and I am not worthy enough to even untie their shoes’.”

After BJP leader Amit Shah met bishops in Kerala in June, the Kerala Catholic Bishops Council (KCBC) expressed anguish over the Centre’s ban on the sale of cattle for slaughter in animal markets and said that they would not accept a government that dictates what people should eat.

In Goa, Muslims and Christian groups came together to fight the anti-slaughter order. With influential Muslims and the Roman Catholic Church in the State backing a civil society collective called Goa for Beef-Beef for Goa, the Qureshi Meat Traders Association filed a writ petition on June 12 before the Goa bench of the Bombay High Court seeking a stay on the May 26 Central notification banning the sale and purchase of cattle from animal markets for slaughter.

Even as Christians join hands with Muslims and other minority groups against the Hindu right wing in the political domain, they find recourse in their religious doctrine. “It is well known that Christianity thrives under persecution and that is what will happen here. The more the right wing attacks us, the more we will grow in strength,” a believer told Frontline. (source)

University Shuts Down Amid Chaos After Muslim Student Government Candidate Loses Election And The Muslims Riot, Attacking Christians, Kill One Student And Injure Two, And Then Claim ‘It Was Because Of Blasphemy Against The Prophet Of Islam’

University Shuts Down Amid Chaos After Muslim Student Government Candidate Loses Election And The Muslims Riot, Attacking Christians, Kill One Student And Injure Two, And Then Claim ‘It Was Because Of Blasphemy Against The Prophet Of Islam’

Muslim students are rioting right now at the Federal University of Technology in Nigeria after a Muslim student government candidate lost to a Christian candidate. Almost immediately after it happened a rumor went around that somebody ‘blasphemed Mohammed’ on a Facebook page, and the Muslim students started rioting and the univeristy is working to regain order. So far at least one has been killed and two injured:

There is an ongoing pandemonium at the Federal University of Technology, Yola, FUTY over claim by Muslims students that, a fellow student made a blasphemous remark against Prophet Muhammed.

According to the students who are currently on the run following the unrest at the campus, few weeks to the Student Union Government, SUG election, there was a threat by a student on a Facebook page warning the school authority should take action against the alleged claim of blasphemy or the Muslim students would take all necessary action to stop academic activities in the institution.

However, other students who spoke to DAILY POST at the time of the incident said, the riot was not as a result of the alleged claim of blasphemy, but as a result of the election of the Student’s Union Government, where one Haliru Amos emerged the Union President, as against the expectation of the seeming majority Muslims students.

” The Fellowship of the Muslim Students, wanted one Hamza to be the SUG president, and they promised to give him all the backing. The Fellowship of Christian Students also brought in Haliru Amos, and gave him all the backing. Along the line ,the Muslims students could not reach an agreement, which made Haliru to have a smooth run to emerge the SUG President.

“This is what annoyed them and informed the unrest this evening. I believe some of the lecturers are backing them. The student who issued out a threat earlier was not called to order or arrested by the school authority. So, they always feel they can do anything and get away with,” a student told DAILY POST.

Our Correspondent also reportsthat, the students who are trooping out of the school said, they were asked to leave the school premises as at the time of this report. (source, source)

Christians Flee For Their Lives As Muslim Raiders Burn 50 Homes, Destroy Churches And Slaughter Eight Christians

Christians Flee For Their Lives As Muslim Raiders Burn 50 Homes, Destroy Churches And Slaughter Eight Christians

Christians have been fleeing for their lives as they are being hunted by Muslim raiders throughout Nigeria. In the past two weeks 50 homes have been burned, churches destroyed and at least eight people killed in the raids:

Attacks on villages in north-central Nigeria that killed eight Christians in the past two weeks were carried out by Muslim Fulani herdsmen aided by terrorists from Islamic extremist groups, a local pastor said.

The Rev. Sunday Gado Biri told Morning Star News that the assailants also torched 50 houses belonging to Christians, including his own, and his church building was partially burned in the attacks on Zanwra, a suburb of Jebu-Miango near the city of Jos, Plateau state.

“A critical look at these attacks has revealed that it is not only the herdsmen who are attacking Christian communities, as there are terrorists collaborating with them to carry out these attacks,” said the 54-year-old pastor of the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA), Zanwra.

He appealed to the Nigerian government to bring to an end unabated attacks on Christian communities.

“It is unfortunate that the soldiers brought here are not taking decisive actions against the herdsmen,” he said. “When the herdsmen were burning down houses, the soldiers could not stop them. In spite of this, I still want to appeal to the Nigerian government that it should stop these killings.”

In attacks on Zanwra village between Jan. 22 and Jan. 25, the eight Christians were killed in four ambushes on different days, while the houses were destroyed in two separate attacks.

Pastor Biri said one of his church elders, 60-year-old James Nengwe, was slain the evening of Jan. 24 as he tried to escape.

“He was on his way to the military camp just about two kilometers from his house when he was ambushed, shot and killed by the herdsmen,” the pastor said. “In fact, he was just a few hundred meters from the military camp. He decided to take refuge at the military base camp when he saw the herdsmen attacking and burning houses close to his house.”

Zanwra resident Moses Chohu confirmed that armed herdsmen shot Nengwe to death as he fled for safety.

“A Christian community leader, the ward head of Zanwra, Nengwe, was ambushed and shot to death near a military base camp by armed herdsmen as he tried escaping to the military camp,” Chohu told Morning Star News. “Houses in Zanwra village were being burned by the herdsmen when they ambushed Nengwe and killed him.”

Pastor Biri said the attacks have reduced the number of people attending his church services.

“Some of our members have been displaced, and church attendance has drastically dropped,” he said. “Prior to these attacks, church attendance was at about 400 worshippers, but at the moment we hardly have about 200 worshippers during services on Sundays.”

The pastor said Nengwe had a family and was dedicated to the church.

“When the attack on our communities began we constituted a committee to cater for Internally Displaced Persons,” he said. “Baba James was a member of this committee. Recently, there was an attack on this community by herdsmen, and five houses belonging to some members of my church were burned down by the herdsmen. This is the reason we constituted the committee on the IDPs.”

Another Zanwra resident, Patience Moses, 30, told Morning Star News that on Jan. 25, a day after killing village head Nengwe, the assailants attacked again at about 7 p.m.

“All houses around the DTV area [near Zanwra] to the ECWA Church, Zanwra, were burned down,” she said. “The house of the pastor of ECWA church, Rev. Sunday Biri, was burned down, while the church itself was partially burned. Soldiers who were trying to repel the attackers ran out of bullets, and so the attackers succeeded in burning down houses.”

A mini-van carrying persons from Jos to Kwall was ambushed near the ECWA church, Zanwra, and “the driver, the conductor, and one other Christian” were killed and about 20 others injured, Moses said. Police identified two of the Christians killed in the ambush as Danlami of Kwal District and Emmanuel Audu of Jebbu-Miango.

Around 50 houses belonging to Christians were burned, Moses said, including those of Pastor Biri; Dauda Babuje; Jonathan Davou; John Huyep; Danladi Sunday; Sunday Ragwa; Yakubu A.A.; Morris Ragwa; Joro Sunday; Adamu Hunye; Timothy Audu; Audu Hunye; David Saku; Luka Adamu; Infor Aji; Demi Sunday; Damjuma Gah, and two identified only as Maley and Monday.

In the DTV area near Zanwra, the houses of the following Christians were burned down by the herdsmen, she said: Joshua Audu; Saku Leh; Musa Akwa; Paseh; Audu; Shehu Audu; Danlami Gyah; Monday Njwe; Friday Monday; Igya Danlami; Monday Gyah; Uwah Audu; Gbah Gyah; Kuku Gbah; Adeh Njweh; Jonathan Ndeh; Musa Njweh; Ishon Njwe; Yakubu Njweh; Ishaya Barry; Fidelis Barry; Monday Ishaya; Musa Dahro; Christopher Musa; Joshua Musa; Guba Bitrus; and Friday Saku.

Zanwra resident Chohu said attacks on Christian communities in the area began on Jan. 14, when three Christians from Kimakpa village went to Maiyanga village, and herdsmen attacked them as they were returning to Kimakpa at about 6 p.m.

“One of them was killed, the second was injured, while the third escaped unhurt,” Chohu said. Their names were not readily available.

On Jan. 22 three Christians from Kpachudu and Kwall villages who had gone to a mining camp at Telma village were returning at about 6 p.m. when Muslim Fulani herdsmen ambushed them at Chuvo-Kpara village, Chohu said. The three died in the attack, with the herdsmen chopping off the head of one of them and taking it with them.

“On Jan. 24, at about 7:50 p.m., just about an hour after the ward head was murdered by the herdsmen, they also set afire four houses in Alleh village near Zanwra,” he said. “The houses burnt were those of Christians Dauda Ahmadu, Musa Nengwe, Danjuma David and Sunday Nengwe.”

The ward head, Nengwe, was buried on Jan. 25 at about 10 a.m. in a funeral witnessed by a Morning Star News correspondent, and by evening of the same day, the herdsmen invaded Zanwra village anew, burning more houses of Christians and displacing many of them.

Zanwra residents identified two of the dead as Emmanuel Audu and Danlami.

Matthias Tyopev, spokesman for the Plateau State Police Command, said in a press statement that three people were killed in the Jan. 24 attack.

“Three people were killed and burned by the armed men,” he said. “Eight others sustained various degrees of gunshot injuries. About 20 housing units were also set ablaze. An investigation is ongoing to unravel the remote and immediate causes of these attacks.” (source)

Muslim Man Abandons Islam For Christ, In Response His Wife And Seven Children Leave Him, His Parents Disown Him, And Now Muslims Are Hunting To Kill Him

Muslim Man Abandons Islam For Christ, In Response His Wife And Seven Children Leave Him, His Parents Disown Him, And Now Muslims Are Hunting To Kill Him

Munabi Abdullah gave up everything after he put his faith in Christ. A former Muslim, the day he told his wife that he accepted Jesus as his savior she abandoned him and took their seven children, his parents cursed his name and disowned him, and now Muslims are hunting to kill him according to a report:

In a village in eastern Uganda, it took no more than a day for Munabi Abudallah to lose his wife and seven children after putting his faith in Christ.

“The Muslims are searching to kill me,” Abudallah, 37, told Morning Star News by phone. “My family members have deserted me. I am spending sleepless nights.”

The former Muslim is in hiding after a few simple inquiries of Islamic and Christian leaders in Tirinyi sub-county, Kibuku District, put him on a short journey to faith in Christ.

About two months ago he asked an Islamic teacher, or sheikh, why Arabic was used during Friday prayers at Kataka mosque in Kataka II village. He did not understand Arabic, he told the sheikh.

“When I questioned the sheikh about the use of Arabic language, he said that Arabic is the language in which Allah communicated his message to prophet Muhammad, hence it should not be questioned,” Abudallah said.

Troubled by this reply, he began asking Christians how their God communicated to them.

“The church pastor said that God is the God of all people who communicates to people in various languages,” Abudallah told Morning Star News. “After several private sessions with the pastor regarding the God of Christianity, it was on Jan. 20 at 4 p.m. when I was convicted that the God of Christianity is a God of love and then decided to put my faith in God’s son, Jesus, for which I received a unique peace that I had not experienced before.”

After departing, he returned home. That evening, with an irrepressible joy in his heart, he shared his experience with his wife, Aisha Namukoli. She became furious, he said.

“My wife shouted at me in front of the children, saying, ‘Kafir, Kafir [infidel]! You are a big shame to the family,’” he said. “She then pushed me out of the house.”

That night Abudallah managed to get back in and slept in the kitchen. Early in the morning he got up and went to see the pastor of a church, undisclosed for security reasons, and told him the hardships he was facing. The pastor prayed for him, and he turned back toward his home.

As he approached his house at about 6 p.m., Abudallah was surprised to see several people, including his father and members of the Kataka mosque. Their anger was evident, he said. He greeted them, and there was total silence.

His father, he said, stood up and said, “You are no longer my son, be cursed forever.”

“He hit me with a walking stick that was in his hand and hurt my left hand,” Abudallah said. “I managed to escape through a banana farm, and after a short while I was at the pastor’s house.”

Abudallah, father of four boys and three girls between the ages of 17 and 3, appeared shaken and in deep emotional pain.

“I need prayers,” he said.

Uganda’s constitution and other laws provide for religious freedom, including the right to propagate one’s faith and convert from one faith to another.

Muslims make up no more than 12 percent of Uganda’s population, with many concentrated in the eastern part of the country. (source)

Muslim Gang Attacks Christians In Church While At Services, Egyptian Court Exonerates All Of Them For “Good Behavior” And Fines The Church

Muslim Gang Attacks Christians In Church While At Services, Egyptian Court Exonerates All Of Them For “Good Behavior” And Fines The Church

Nineteen Muslims attacked a church just before Christmas 2017, ransacking the building and beating the Christians in the middle of services.

Their sentences were just handed down, and all of them have been released, exonerated from all crimes if they have “good behavior” and instead gives a fine to the church:

An Egyptian court gave a suspended sentence to 19 Muslims who attacked an unlicensed church, giving them no jail time on condition of good behavior.

A misdemeanor court sentenced the 19 defendants Wednesday, showing immense leniency to those who destroyed church property and assaulted congregants within, according to the Associated Press. The defendants took part in a Dec. 22 attack on an unlicensed Coptic church in Giza. The assailants destroyed the inside of the church and beat Christian worshipers until police broke up the assault.

The attackers stormed the church after Friday prayers at their local mosque, screaming for the building’s destruction and ransacking the property. They wounded several of the Christians within. Security forces transported the injured to a local hospital.

While the court let the 19 assailants go free with a sentence that amounted to little more than a warning, another court fined one of the assaulted church’s leaders about $20,383 for starting and continuing an unlicensed church.

The church has operated for 15 years but has yet to be officially licensed by the government despite church leaders seeking to legalize the church in 2016, according to Haaretz. Local governments in Egypt sometimes refuse to license new churches in order to avoid stoking the ire of the Muslim population. New mosques, by contrast, easily obtain the proper licensing from their local governments. (source)

Well-Known Local Muslim Man Tricks Seven-Year-Old Christian Boy Walking Home From School, Lures Him To A Farm, Then Rips His Clothes Off And Tries To Strangle Him To Death While Violently Sodomizing Him

Well-Known Local Muslim Man Tricks Seven-Year-Old Christian Boy Walking Home From School, Lures Him To A Farm, Then Rips His Clothes Off And Tries To Strangle Him To Death While Violently Sodomizing Him

Thankfully the man was caught quickly and the boy survived the horrible ordeal, but without serious scars:

A Christian boy of only 7 years old was brutally sodomized by a Muslim rapist who later fled the scene when two Christian men ran to the screaming boy and rescued him from his terrifying and brutal ordeal.

Daim Masih (7 yrs) is a grade one student attending Bethel Christian School, from the district of Sahiwal in the punjab. His school is 2km away from his home and usually he would be dropped to school by his father with his 9 year old sister Carol and collected also. However, on some occasions when the father was working Carol would lead her brother home and they would walk with many other children also used to the unaccompanied journey.

On 29th January, Carol was ill with a very high fever so her mother Sheeba (36 yrs) was looking after Carol and her youngest child Komal so Daim’s father Javed Masih (42 yrs) explained to his son that he should follow the other children and arrive home, especially as on that day their were exams in school so his day was shortened. Daim had walked home by himself on several previous occasions and was not fazed by this, unsupervised travel to and from school is a very common practice for children in Pakistan which normally begins from the age of 4 years.

Daim started his journey to his home at village Minar Wali 86/9 and was making good headway and was at the mid-point of his journey 1km from his home, when he was met by Shan Muhammed (19 yrs), who is a well known local village youth. Shan spoke to Daim and shared exiting news, he said:

“Hi Daim, it’s nice to see you I have good news one of our cows has given birth to young calves. Would you like to come with me and see them?

Shan knew Daim and his family from before as they live in the same community. He was well aware that Daim had a great fascination and passion for animals and was using this love for farm creatures to entice Daim to go with him to a secluded spot on his family’s farm.

Shan held Daim’s hand and described the beauty of the young calves and the way in which they were playing to Daim. However, Daim some realised that they were not going in the direction of the animals. He began to get sacred and asked Shan why they were going the wrong way. Shan told him he had another big surprise for him.

They walked a few metres to some trees when suddenly Shan ripped of his shirt, then the rest of his clothes and threw Daim to the floor. Shan then jumped on Daim and proceeded with a sexual assault and sodomization of poor Daim. While the attack was happening the tiny 7 year old struggled to fight of Shan who was much bigger and more powerful then him.

Daim was punched, slapped and kneed by Shan who was shouting obscenities during the attack and demanding Daim to stop his screaming. The violence and the unlawful penetration of Dain was so painful however, that he could not stop his screaming. Desperate for him to be quiet or thrilled by the power and subjugation of his prey, sexual predator Shan began to tighten his hands around Daim’s neck and was slowly throttling him to death while having his wicked way with him.

Fortunately a grandfather Younas Masih (62 yrs) and uncle Samuel Masih (32 yrs) of Daim heard his piercing screams from their home which was near the farm and came rushing out to see what was happening.

When he saw the two men arriving at the scene of his attack, Shan pulled up his Sharwar (trouser) tied it up and ran for the wall of the farm. He leapt over the wall and disappeared from site but not before being seem by Younas and Samuel.

The two men grabbed Daim, they picked up his clothes and covered him with them (clothes were placed on top of him not reworn) as they carried him to their church to get help. At Gospel Church which is affiliated with the Church of Pakistan, they met Bishop Abraham who called the police using the emergency services number 112.

Despite the serious nature of the crime the police arrived after 30 minutes and a few later an ambulance arrived. Daim was put into the ambulance and taken to District Headquarters Hospital 8 km away from the church and Bishop Abraham, Sheeba, Younas and Samuel were with him.

At the hospital the police took a statement from Bishop Abraham, Younas, Samuel and Daim and an immediate FIR was registered by the police at Police Station Gala Mundi, Sahiwal and an investigation began immediately.

The same day the family were contacted by Sub Inspector (SI) Nazeer Ahmed and advised that Shan Muhammad had been arrested and was safely in their custody. Police have also informed the family that Shan has admitted the rape and kidnap of young Daim and that he will stand trial.

Shan’s parenst have approached the family of Daim to apologize for his crime and ask if the family would accept a payment as per Pakistan’s Qisas and Diyat laws, but the family of Daim have refused. Sheeba spoke to Mehwish Bhatti of the BPCA, she said:

“I have not slept since I discovered the attack on Daim. I cannot imagine the horror he felt as he realised he was going to be attacked or when he knew there was nothing he could do to stop the attack.

“I want to meet Shan so I can ask him why he attacked my son in this way, I want to know what made him do such an evil act that will scar my poor boy forever and has rocked our family. I want him to know and understand the pain he has inflicted on Daim and all those who love him.”

Wilson Chowdhry, Chairman of the BPCA, said:

“The constant rape of young children in Pakistan is a blight on the nation’s reputation. The rape and murder of Zainab has highlighted this problem more globally but still the world fail;s to understand that Christian children are more susceptible to such crimes and their number of victims are in the thousands every year.

“Only the screaming of Daim saved hm from being murdered in my opinion. In response to the noise the quick-thinking grandfather and uncle of Daim saved him from being strangled to death by an over exuberant and violent youth who clearly is imbalanced.

“Justice in this case will serve to frighten others from such a audacious atack but in a country riven with extremism, anarchy and criminal impunity how much will it really dent the existing malaise – I doubt very much.

“Pakistani authorities must take seriously their obligatios to protect the innocent children preyed upon by these evil, sexually depraved beasts in their country. They must bring about a rule of law that frightens would-be-killers and rapists from such attacks.

Moreover they must get to the root cause of the sordid mentality that has destroyed the very fabric of their society and enact programs of education and social welfare that attempts to eradicate the moral vacum that leads to such crimes.” (source)

Muslim High School Students Demand Christian Teens Convert To Islam At School And They Refuse, The Muslims Attack Them And Stab Them With Knives

Muslim High School Students Demand Christian Teens Convert To Islam At School And They Refuse, The Muslims Attack Them And Stab Them With Knives

Muslim high school students demanded that a group of fellow Christian high schoolers. When the teens refused, the Muslims attacked, beating them and stabbing them with knives:

Muslim students at a high school in Nairobi on Tuesday night (Jan. 23) beat and stabbed Christians who refused to convert to Islam, a local source said.

Tensions had been growing for weeks at Jamhuri High School in northern Nairobi, with Muslims primarily of Somali, Boran and Oromo descent complaining of discrimination. Due to increasing hostilities, the boarding school had designated separate bathrooms and separate sections in the library for Christians and Muslims, a source told Morning Star News.

The conflict came to a head Tuesday night (Jan. 23), when Muslim students began speaking in inflammatory terms and tried to force Christian students to recite the Islamic creed for conversion and force students to participate in Muslim cleansing rituals, a source on campus who requested anonymity said.

“Some Muslim students forcefully tried to induct Christian students into their Islam faith, and those who refused were knifed, while others were physically beaten,” the source told Morning Star News by phone. “The knives and machetes used are alleged to have come from outside the school.”

At least 35 of the school’s 1,500 students were injured, including some Muslims when the Christian students tried to defend themselves, the source said. Some Christian students received hospital treatment for stab wounds and dislocated bones in their hands and joints, he said.

Police were investigating the cause of the attack at this writing. The school has been closed indefinitely.

School Principal Fred Awuor was reportedly injured in the attack and had received hospital treatment. (source)

Muslim Man Finds Out Woman And Mother-Of-Four Abandons Islam For Christ, He Takes A Knife And Stabs Her 16 Times In A Supermarket Right In Front Of Her Children

She died on the way to the hospital, but the murderer has been arrested and is going on trial for the brutal murder that took place right in a supermarket in front of her children:

The trial has begun for an Afghan failed asylum seeker accused of killing an Afghan Christian convert woman in front of her children.

The 30-year-old Afghan is said to have known the 38-year-old victim as they had lived in the same asylum home in Germany. The prosecution has alleged that the asylum seeker was upset with the woman’s conversion to Christianity and her offer to help him convert angered him so much that he stabbed her to death, Bayerische Rundfunk reports.

The killing occurred last year in April outside of a supermarket in the German municipality of Prien am Chiemsee in Bavaria. The Afghan man approached the mother of four and then used a knife to cut and stab her 16 times in front of two of her underage children.

An ambulance and police arrived on the scene a short time later but the woman succumbed to her wounds on the way to the hospital.

Since his arrest, the rejected asylum seeker admitted to the murder claiming that he had done so because he was frustrated regarding his failed asylum application.

Christian Man Arrested By Police And Sentenced To Over Three Years In Jail In Cuba For Having Bibles, Police Tell Him ‘We Do Not Believe In Your God- Our God Is Fidel Castro’

Christian Man Arrested By Police And Sentenced To Over Three Years In Jail In Cuba For Having Bibles, Police Tell Him ‘We Do Not Believe In Your God- Our God Is Fidel Castro’

A Christian man was arrested and sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison after he was caught with Bibles in his home. He was charged with “pre-criminal social dangerousness” and was told by police that ‘we are revolutionaries  and our god is Fidel Castro’:

Details have emerged about the arrest and imprisonment of a Cuban Christian rights activist who was sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison late last year after authorities raided his home and confiscated Bibles and crucifixes.

Misael Diaz Paseiro, a dissident who is a member of the Orlando Zapata Tamayo Civic Resistance Front, was arrested in November and charged with “pre-criminal social dangerousness” by the Communist government, according to the watchdog NGO Christian Solidarity Worldwide.

Paseiro’s arrest came after state security agents raided his home on Oct. 22 and confiscated two Bibles, several crucifixes and five rosaries. According to CSW, it was on Nov. 4 that Paseiro was beaten by “political police.”

“Misael, in addition to being a counter-revolutionary, you are also a Christian,” CSW quoted a police official as telling Paseiro. “You should look at us, we are revolutionaries and we don’t believe in your God. Our god is Fidel Castro.”

Paseiro was initially denied basic rights in prison, such as access to a Bible and visits from a priest. Paseiro’s mistreatment led his wife, Ariana López Roque, to go on a 19-day hunger strike.

During López Roque’s hunger strike, CSW reports that police officials prevented a pastor from going to their home to provide counsel. Pastor Bárbaro Guevara tried to visit López Roque twice but was physically blocked from doing so.

López Roque has since ended her hunger strike after receiving assurances that her husband’s rights will be respected in prison, according to CSW.

As the government agents who beat Paseiro reportedly told him that the deceased revolutionary and brutal dictator Castor was their God, Cuban pastor and rights activist Mario Barroso told The Christian Post on Thursday that it is not uncommon for people in Cuba to invoke the name of Castro.

Barroso, a missionary who’s been arrested many times by the Cuban government who came to the United States as a refugee with his family in 2016, told CP that invoking the name Castro as a deity is the “strategy of some people in Cuba to cover crimes and corruption.”

“Invoking Fidel Castro in Cuba helps cover acts of corruption and even crimes. This proves that the followers of [Castro as a God] are not really so adept as Fidel himself but rather at the benefits that are covered by invoking him,” Barroso explained. “Deep down they are imitating Fidel with this behavior since Fidel Castro was like that too: an opportunist, a blackmailer. So the believers in Fidel Castro act in the image and likeness of their god, Fidel. They are faithful followers of the evil example of their god.”

“There may be 5 percent of those who claim to have Fidel Castro as god who really adore him,” Barroso added. “The other 95 percent is just opportunists who imitate Fidel’s bad example.”

The news of Paseiro’s detention comes as a new CSW report on Cuba released this month relays that there were as many as 325 religious freedom violations in the island nation in 2017.

Although the 325 figure is lower than the number of religious freedom violations that CSW reported in 2015 and 2016, it still continues an increasing trend in violations since 2011, the organization reports.

“CSW is deeply concerned by the growing number and severity of [religious freedom] violations reported by a wide variety of denominations and religious groups, which seem to show that the government is attempting to tighten its control over the activities and membership of religious groups,” the CSW report reads. “Many of the documented violations were in line with the types of violations seen in previous years — for example the use of temporary arbitrary detention, harassment of church leaders, and attacks on property rights.”

“It appears, however, that the government is now also diversifying its tactics by threatening activists and religious leaders with trumped up criminal charges, arbitrarily preventing them from traveling out of the country and targeting their children,” the report continued. “It is essential that the European Union, the United States, and other governments in dialogue with Cuba use their positions to press for improvements to religious freedom and the general human rights situation in the country.” (source)
