Christian persecution in India has reached a new level as believers in one state are reportedly being fined for worshiping Christ.

Hindu radicals have attacked and threatened Christians with the “tactical approval” of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) government, reports Persecution.org.

Last month, a public meeting turned brutal when Hindu villagers tied up and beat 25 Christians.

“About 100 people from three neighboring villages were waiting when we reached the place and started to tell us that it is wrong for us to pray to Jesus and that we should follow Hinduism and perform Puja (Hindu ritual) to the idols only,” said Pastor Ravi who survived the attack.

The group refused and instead Pastor Ravi told Morning Star News that he shared his testimony with the crowd. He told them that Jesus healed him from an illness in 2007 and that he has been a faithful follower ever since.

“The pastor’s testimony enraged the crowd more,” said Rev. Akash Nandi, an area Christian leader. “They started to beat him and the other five Christian men while they shouted that they should renounce Christ or else they will kill them. They told them to chant, ‘Jai Shri Ram {Hail lord Ram},’ perform the Puja and worship the idols there and then.”

The villagers attacked six of the men from the group for about 30 minutes. Pastor Ravi suffered was also attacked leaving him with severe chest pain, as well as a cuts to his hands and his body.

One man’s hands were broken and four others suffered cuts and wounds on their mouth, eyes, hands, and legs.

“The extremists threatened to tie up the women as well while they mocked and hurled all sorts of vulgar abuse at them,” Pastor Ravi said.

The attack finally ended with the Hindus telling the Christians to leave the village.
