Eleven Christians Beaten Up in Bastar, Jagdalpur, Chhattisgarh

On 25 Oct, Hindu extremists brutally beat up eleven Christians after they were summoned to assemble for a discussion in Madota, Bastar.

Around 9:30 a.m, an announcement was made through drum beats that the local villagers should gather together under the presence of the administrative officials to discuss an issue between the Christians and the Hindu villagers, reported our correspondent.

However, nobody except the Christians turned up till late that day. "In the evening, about 4 armed Hindu extremists wearing saffron bands came in a truck, accused the Christians of forceful conversion and beat them up." Arun Pannalal, President of the Chhattisgarh Christian Forum told EFI News.

The eleven injured Christians were rushed to a hospital in Jagdalpur where they were all admitted.
