Two Christian youth attacked in Bhiwani, Haryana


A group of RSS activists attacked two Christian youth belonging to the Bible school
of Ambala, on November 14 in Bhiwani, Haryana.

According to reports, the youth were distributing gospel tracts near the Baptist
Church in Bhiwani as part of their field work. At about 1:00 pm, RSS radicals
surrounded them and began beating them for distributing the literature. Both
Christians have sustained injuries.

A First Information Report (FIR) has been registered under sections 147, 149,
452,435 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). The police also informed the Christian Legal
Association (CLA) that the accused are absconding but efforts are being made to
locate and arrest them.

Please pray that the youth will recover fast and that they will continue to grow
strong in their faith. Also pray that the accused will be caught and brought to
justice.
