Christians Boycotted in Chhattisgarh

In Charama, Kanker, four Christian families were harassed daily after the village head along with the Hindu extremists called a meeting and publicly boycotted them on April 7.

According to our correspondent, the village head summoned the four Christian families to a public meeting, announced that they are outcast for following Christ, warned to punish anyone who talked to them, gave them water and sold them goods.

"The electricity has also been cut off from their homes," area Christian leader, advocate Sonsingh Jhali told EFI News.

The ongoing incident of boycotting the Christians erupted after the Hindu extremists stormed the marriage ceremony of a Christian, Vishwas Sahu, where they manhandled the Christians including his four sisters.

The situation is tense in the area.

In a similar incident in Mokhpal, Dantewada, Hindu extremists harassed the Christians and threatened to destroy the church if they continued to worship Christ in the area.

According to our correspondent, the Hindu extremists maintained that the name of Christ should not be mentioned in the village and anyone who continued to go to church will be banished, socially boycotted and that their agricultural lands will also be captured.

Kindly pray for the Christians in Chhattisgarh.
