A Christian farmer was attacked in Ambapani village near Vansda in Gujarat on
October 28, 2007.

The incident took place when Bharat bhai, a local farmer was returning back
from his field along with his family. The radicals started to beat him up for
his Christian faith and also threatened his family that they will be killed if
they continued to go to church and follow Christianity.

Later, the radicals also went to the local church and threatened the pastor
and his congregation that they would kill them if they continued to worship
there.

Unfortunately the police seem to be on the side of the radicals so have not
registered a complaint on behalf of the farmer. Mr. Bharat, therefore, has
sent a report to the Human Rights Commission regarding the incident.

Please pray for justice to be done in this case and that the believers would
remain strong in their faith.
