Muslim Terrorists Are Wiping Out Entire Christian Villages And Kidnapping The Survivors In A Massive War Against Christianity In Nigeria

Muslim Terrorists Are Wiping Out Entire Christian Villages And Kidnapping The Survivors In A Massive War Against Christianity In Nigeria

Islamic terrorists from the northern regions of Nigeria have been waging an all-out war on Christianity throughout the country. Entire villages have been depopulated, churches destroyed, and countless people kidnapped and held for ransom. Christians live in constant fear of Muslim gangs who remain on the hunt for Christians to kidnap and hold captive according to a report:

Kwanti and its surrounding villages of large estates inhabited mostly by farmers have been taken over by armed bandits believed to be Muslim Fulani herdsmen and terrorists. They are working in concert to terrorize local communities through kidnappings and thus force people from their lands.

“Even if you give me 1 million naira [US$2,750], I will not take the risk to take you to Kwanti,” one of the drivers told me.

Unable to convince one of them to be my guide to the area, I watched as they discussed in hushed tones among themselves in the Gbagyi language. I approached them again with a Gbagyi greeting “Agife,” and they engaged me in talk of how mine was a trip of no return. Finally one elderly fellow consented to take me there – at five times the usual charge.

“If going to Kwanti will bring into the open our plight as a people, I am prepared to die for it so that my people can be rescued from kidnappers who have made our lives miserable,” he said.

On the one-hour drive to Kwanti, we did not meet a single soul on the roads. At every village we passed, the driver would stop and inquire how safe it was to proceed. The answer was always the same: “Watch out, but is the risk worth it?”

The “road” was a bush path that only vehicles fitted with special gears can negotiate. My guide was sweating profusely. Surrounded by forest, his eyes were roving from side to side checking for lurking kidnappers. To him we were traveling in the shadow of the valley of death, and I recited Psalm 23 to him, telling him that we were protected by the power above that is greater than that of the kidnappers.

When we arrived Kwanti, we found a ghost village. There were four abandoned church buildings – Catholic, EKAS, Baptist, and Assemblies of God – and numerous houses deserted out of residents’ fear of kidnappers. We met some few persons in the village who were moving their belongings out.

Once inhabited by prosperous, large-scale commercial farmers, the village had been attacked by marauding kidnappers four times within one year, I learned. Many lives were lost, many people were kidnapped and millions of naira had been paid as ransom for mostly women victims.

The few people left in the village told me all the church leaders had left because all the residents had fled. I got a phone number of one of the pastors and called him. He was shocked that I was in Kwanti. He urged me to leave the village immediately.

“The kidnappers are heartless,” he said. “They can kidnap you if they spot you. They strike any time, and ransom must paid before a victim can be released. Sometimes you may not be lucky to come out alive if they kidnap you. So please leave Kwanti now, and let me know if you’re out of the place safely.”

Other villages attacked within that triangular “axis of evil” include Ungwar Rimi, Bauta, Kunuko, Ronu, and Taso 2.

On our way out, as a safety measure we took a different route out of the village, but like the road in, it had broken culverts that forced us to drive into stream water to find our way. My guide’s relief was palpable when we arrived back at Kaduna city, but even as we thanked God for journey mercies and protection, my heart was still with those in Kwanti struggling to move their belongings out.

Surprisingly, the next morning some of the villagers phoned me to inquire whether I had safely reached Kaduna. They had been praying for my safe ride back.

The federal and Kaduna state governments urgently need to investigate the extent of lawlessness in this triangular axis between Kajuru, Jere, and Sabon Wuse/Ganya. Officials need to take measures to end the kidnappings that have become dreaded monsters devouring innocent lives of our citizens.

Kidnappings are not just a menace in southern Kaduna state but are becoming a phenomenon pushing the country to the brink. Leaders of the Roman Catholic Church recently lamented that the whereabouts of three nuns kidnapped in Benin City, Edo state in southwest Nigeria, are still unknown after two months. They were abducted along with three student-nuns at a convent by armed gunmen on Nov. 13.

The Rev. Alfred Adewale Martins, archbishop of Lagos Archdiocese of the Catholic Church, told reporters on Jan. 1 of his sadness over the incessant invasion of churches, kidnappings of priests and pastors and attacks on Christian communities across the country.

“It is disheartening that the security agencies have not been able to get the sisters out, and one wonders why this is the case,” he said. “We still do hope that the security agencies would do much more than is being done now to ensure that the sisters are released.”

Roseline Isiocha, Aloysius Ajayi and Frances Udi, along with the three nuns in training, were kidnapped at about 2 a.m. from a convent of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus (EHJ) Sisters, in Iguoriakhi village, near Benin City.

Unless drastic measures are adopted to curtail kidnapping, the practice threatens to spread into a dangerous conflagration. (source)

Three Christians From Nepal Are Arrested And Jailed In India For The ‘Crime’ Of “Spreading Christianity”

Three Christians From Nepal Are Arrested And Jailed In India For The ‘Crime’ Of “Spreading Christianity”

Three Christians from Nepal were arrested in India while handing out Christian literature. They were charged with “insulting the Hindu gods” and “spreading Christianity” according to a report:

Three Nepalese Christians who shared Christian materials in Shahjahanpur city in India have been arrested and sent to jail after some locals accused them of spreading Christianity and insulting Hindu gods.

The Times of India identified the accused on Thursday as Indra Bahadur Tamad, Shukra Rai and Mekh Bahadur, who arrived in Shahjahanpur on Sunday and began distributing Christian books.

The Nepalese citizens had rented a house and had planned to stay there for a while, but on Wednesday when addressing a crowd, they got into an argument with a couple of local Hindu men, Ravi Prakash Dikshit and Vimal Pandey.

Dikshit and Pandey later filed a complaint against the Christians, accusing them of insulting Hindu gods, which led the to the arrests.

Other locals who witnessed the exchange said that the Christians are innocent, however.

“The three of them are innocent and were only sharing the teachings of the Bible. A group of Christians come here every year and do the same, but such an incident has never happened before. They never uttered a single word against any god or goddess,” a resident, who wished not to be named, said.

Local police said that the Christians belong to the World Council of Churches and were there to promote Christianity, charging them under IPC Section 295A, or “deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs.”

Christian pastors and other believers are regularly arrested in India and threatened with prison for sharing the Gospel. Seven pastors were arrested in Northern India in December after they were accused of forcible conversion by Hindus in the Uttar Pradesh state.

The Christians were also accused of resorting to violence after Hindus refused their evangelistic efforts, though they deny the charges.

London-based charity British Asian Christian Association said at the time that the believers were denied bail.

“I can’t express the frustration I feel for these pastors. Words simply cannot convey the anger I feel when I think of their unwarranted arrest based on the lies of local people fearful of the Gospel message of Christ,” BACA’s lead officer in India, Pastor Naresh, said in a statement.

“Men trying to save the lives and the souls of others are arrested on the whim of extremists, but they never lose their calling or faith.”

In another incident in November in Chhattisgarh state, two pastors were beaten by Hindu extremists and forced to apologize for spreading the Gospel, which had offended some locals.

“Pastor Vijay Jogi and Pastor Santosh Rao were receiving the people at the entrance,” Pastor Amos James said about the Gospel meeting that attracted attention.

“Suddenly a mob of 70 Hindu Dharm Sena and Bajrang Dal activists gheraoed (encircled) the entrance, and Pastor Jogi and Pastor Rao were beaten and summoned to the police station,” he described. (source)

Fifty-Five Christians Have Been Murdered And Two Hundred Homes Burned By Muslim Terrorists In Just ONE State In Nigeria Last Week And The Violence Is Getting Worse

Fifty-Five Christians Have Been Murdered And Two Hundred Homes Burned By Muslim Terrorists In Just ONE State In Nigeria Last Week And The Violence Is Getting Worse

Almost half of Nigeria’s population is Christian and the numbers continue to grow, and with that violence against Christians in Nigeria continues to increase. Just last week alone 55 Christians were killed and 200 murdered in ONE state by Islamic terrorists according to a report:

Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) said Fulani herdsmen are attacking and not clashing with Christians.

Mervyn Thomas, Chief Executive of CSW, told Premier not enough is being done to stop the violence.

He said: “It’s an awful situation. The world knows very little about it and the sad thing is… this goes on with impunity. Nobody is ever bought to book about it.”

Last week suspected Fulani ethnic militants – groups of semi-nomadic, Muslim herders – reportedly killed at least 55 people in Lau local government area of Taraba state.

According to local reports, since the attacks which began during the weekend, about 200 homes have been destroyed and 25 bodies were recovered and given a mass burial on Tuesday. (source)

Nine Out Of Ten Countries Where Christians Suffer The Most Persecution Are Islamic, Being A Christian Is Illegal Or Punishable Where Almost 1 In 12 Christians Live In The World Today

Nine Out Of Ten Countries Where Christians Suffer The Most Persecution Are Islamic, Being A Christian Is Illegal Or Punishable Where Almost 1 In 12 Christians Live In The World Today

Open Doors USA just released their annual Christian persecution watch list with the 50 nations Christians suffer the greatest amount of persecution in. Not suprising, 9 of the top 10, 19 of the top 25, and 36 of the top 50- or 90%, 76%, and 72% respectively- of all of the persecution of Christians comes from Muslim-majority nations, and 1 in 12 Christians in the world lives in an area where Christianity is illegal or punishable. according to their report:

But the new report reveals an alarming trend as countries driven by Islamic extremism reach persecution levels rivaling those in North Korea. Afghanistan (#2) and North Korea nearly tied for the No. 1 spot. Never before have the top two countries been so close in persecution incidents. Both countries are extreme in intolerance and outright persecution of Christians in all six areas of life that Open Doors monitors.

Countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East are intensifying persecution against Christians. Perhaps the most vulnerable are Christian women, who often face double persecution for their faith and gender.

Every day, six women are raped, sexually harassed or are forced into marriage to a Muslim under threat of death due to their Christian faith. Research for the World Watch List documented 2,260 such incidences against women—and this number only covers those who had the courage to report such an incident, representing only a fraction of those actually raped and harassed in this way. Throughout this year, we’ve shared numerous stories of women, such as Debora in Nigeria, Rana in Iraq and Workitu in Ethiopia martyred for her faith, who have experienced dual persecution because they 1) believe in Jesus and 2) because they are female.

The overall numbers signal an increase in violence–especially against women, says Open Doors USA CEO David Curry. “It’s imperative we continue to advocate and call leaders to prioritize issues of religious freedom.” (source)

The report noted that while Christian persecution is most severe in Pakistan and Islamic violence remains the primary driving force of Christian persecution. It said that six countries saw a dramatic increase in persecution of Christians, of which five of them are Muslim- Egypt, Libya, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, and Turkey. However, there was one exception to this list, and that is India. Additionally, the report noted that the cause of the persecution in India was religious nationalism.

This fits with the assessment we gave during our 2017 end of the year summary for our major stories and trends of 2017 to watch going into the next year in which we wrote:

Christians are suffering persecution all around the world. However, a major nation to watch in the years coming is India because plans are actively under way by Hindu Nationalists to exterminate all non-Hindus and create a Hindu ethnostate no different than what Germany and Japan attempted to do centuries ago. These plans have been confirmed by both Christians as well as former Hindu Nationalists involved in creating them yet nobody is discussing them. Shoebat.com is the first and only website to systematically identify and outline the plans of these Hindu nationalists and call for Christians to prepare to help their Indian brothers as their lives will need it in the coming years. (source)

The fact remains that Muslim persecution of Christians is the single greatest cause of Christian persecution throughout the world by an indisputable measure. However, this does not mean that Christians persecuted in other areas should be ignored. At the same time, the persecution of Christians at the hands of ethnonationalist Hindus fits with the trend that Shoebat.com has been following in the west, which is the like rise of ethnonationalist paganism that is inherently anti-Christian and is being increasingly defined by anti-Christian pagans. While the form is different and the state of advancement might be delayed, the “alt-right movement” is simply a tool and will go down as such in history books as the vehicle by which ethnonationalism and the inevitable persecution of Christians that will follow was introduced and normalized to the people. What is happening in India is an extension of this.

According to official statistics from the Indian government, there are approximately 24 million Christians in India, or the population of both Kazakhstan and Libya put together. As the report noted, India is not yet in the top 10 nations for persecution, but in the duration of one year it went from #15 to #11. If trends continue at the rate they are, and currently they are, India will be in the top 10 nations where Christians are persecuted and will along with North Korea be the only one whose persecution does not come from the enforcement of Islamic theology by Muslims.

Additionally, another interesting point was that according to statistics, 6 Christian women each day are sexually assaulted worldwide as part of the persecution of Christians that is a way of life in so many areas in the world. While these statistics are terrible and certainly not something to boast about, there is hope, for thanks to your help, Rescue Christians was able to report that we have been able to Rescue an average of 5 to 6 Christians each day, EVERY day, from slavery. This could not have been accomplished without the assistance of many people who have supported us in this important and life-saving ministry.

It has scarcely been two weeks into 2018 and already Christian persecution has been making headlines in the news around the world with all of the horrors that defines it. There is much work ahead this year, and given the political and social climates with rising and institutionalized hatred of Christianity done in the name of race, “tolerance” or other popularized ideas, much preparatory work that needs to be done to prepare for the persecution in the years to come.

Major Hindu Terrorist Group With A Long History Of Violence Against Christians Says ‘If You Are A True Hindu, You Will Go Out And Buy Guns And Prepare To Fight The “Evil Forces” In India’

Major Hindu Terrorist Group With A Long History Of Violence Against Christians Says ‘If You Are A True Hindu, You Will Go Out And Buy Guns And Prepare To Fight The “Evil Forces” In India’

Bajrang Dal is a major Hindu terrorist group with a long history of violence against Christians in India. Founded in 1984, the group’s self-stated goal is the “reversal” of all “non-Hindu” influence in India, including the purge of all non-Hindu religions and making the cow the national symbol of India. This accords with what we have been warning about with the “Hindutva Rashtra,” or the “pure Hindu ethnostate” that Hindu nationalists state they want to realize and in both idea and the means by which they wish to go about realizing it are absolutely no different than what happened during World War II in Germany and Japan, except in an Indian context. Bajrang Dal has also been tied to racist, ethnonationalist, and anti-Christian movements abroad, including the Kahanist movement in Israel.

In a statement by Bajrang Dal leaders, they have told their followers that they need to go out and buy guns to prepare to fight the “evil forces” in India, according to a report:

In a bizarre statement, Bajrang Dal leaders in western Uttar Pradesh have asked Hindus to purchase guns and not mobiles to protect Hindu religion as “evil forces persists in India”. An appeal was also issued asking Hindus to visit Hanuman temples and not `Mazars’.

The statement came from Balraj Singh Dungar, regional coordinator of Bajrang Dal, who said during a Sant Samaj Sammelan in Meerut that Hindu dharma was in peril because evil forces were raising their heads. “If you are a true Hindu, take a vow to protect your religion. So, instead of purchasing a new mobile, purchase a gun,” he said in the meeting.

He did not specify who the evil forces were but talked about “love jihad” and how this practice was spreading its tentacles.

Dungar said that all Hindu Gods and Goddesses have arms to protect the society and religion from evils. “If Hindu Gods have arms, what’s wrong if we (Hindus) get arms and ammunition? These are not for attack but to defend ourselves,” he said.

In the same meet, the Maha-mandaleshar of Sankat Mochan Hanuman Sri Balaji and Sri Shani Dham Peeth, Mahendra Das, said Hindus should not visit `mazars’. They should admire the divine power of Lord Hanuman and visit Hanuman Temples.

The statement of Bajrang Dal came at a time when the Vishwa Hindu Parishad has launched a massive enrolment campaign where volunteers were enrolled in Bajrang Dal at special camps held across Uttar Pradesh.

At present, there are around 10 million active Bajrang Dal members in the country and the target was to increase it to 40 million. In UP alone, the target of the Sangh Parivar is to enrol 1.2 million new Bajrang Dal members.

The VHP’s department secretary, (Awadh Prant), Devendra Mishra, told this reporter that the criteria for new membership is that the members should be in the age group of 15 to 35 years and swear by the ideology of ‘Seva, Suraksha, Sanskar’.

The issue of ‘ghar vapsi’, protection of Hindu community and opposition to ‘love jihad’, besides service to the poor and downtrodden were some of the prime activities of Bajrang Dal, he said.

Clarifying that Muslim youths are not enrolled in the Bajrang Dal as the Sangh Parivar has separate wing for them called Rashtriya Muslim Manch, Mishra said Christians won’t be accepted.

Mishra said that the Bajranj Dal was yet to commence its much-publicised Trishul Diksha, which was stopped in 2006. “Every year, in the months of May-June, firearms training camp are organised in different parts of the state. The first camp was held in Ayodhya while in 2017, the camp was held in Hardoi,” he said. (source)

After A Christian Church Was Set On Fire, Police Investigating Eerily Warn The Christians ‘It Was Done By Those Who Don’t Like Christianity In The Middle Of A Muslim Country’

After A Christian Church Was Set On Fire, Police Investigating Eerily Warn The Christians ‘It Was Done By Those Who Don’t Like Christianity In The Middle Of A Muslim Country’

A Baptist Church was burned down in Muslim-majority Kyrgystan. When the police came to investigate, they eerily warned the Christians saying ‘the church fire was done by those who don’t want Christianity in the middle of a Muslim country’ according to a report

A Baptist community in eastern Kyrgyzstan fears for its safety, with its 40 Kyrgyz and Russian members searching for a new place of worship, after unknown attackers set its church building on fire, World Watch Monitor (WWM) reported.

According to WWM, when local radio and TV stations broadcasted news of the arson attack, in Kajisay, a small town in the Issyk-Kul region that borders China, it caused a ‘great public outcry’.

The organisation reported an investigating police officer as saying that the attack was ‘organised by those who don’t like your church and Christianity in the midst of a Muslim country’.

Meanwhile, one church member reportedly said: ‘We don’t believe that the police will find and punish those who burned our church.’

Local Christians said that instead of pursuing the arsonists, police have asked questions about who funded the church building, how many Kyrgyz are members, and why, as ethnic Muslims, they do not go to the local mosque.

In August last year, WWM reported an attack on a Christian community in which, according to local sources, Islamic radicals sprayed ‘We will kill you’ across the church’s walls.

A source added at the time that ‘police and the authorities will stay away from this case because they do not want to help Christians’, who make up only six per cent of the population of the country. (source)
