On 9 June, police in Charikot, Nepal arrested 7 Christians for allegedly attempting to evangelise school children. Nepali church leaders, however, stated that no such attempt was made by the Christians.

According to reports, police are now preparing to file a case against those detained under Article 26 (3) of the Constitution that makes it punishable by law to convert a person of one religion to another.

Prayer points:
  • Pray for the release of those detained by police;
  • Pray for God’s wisdom and guidance upon all church leaders handling this situation;
  • Pray for greater religious freedoms in Nepal.
