Indian Christian Abducted And Tortured For His Faith

Indian Christian abducted and tortured for his faith

Gallu Kowasi, an Indian Christian, recently was badly beaten by locals while they demanded that he renounce his faith. Afterwards, his house was destroyed. But this was not the end of his ordeal – he was blindfolded, abducted and taken to an unknown place, where he was further beaten and tortured. Thankfully he managed to escape…

Since June of this year, over a dozen houses belonging to Christians have been attacked by local Hindu extremist groups, across five villages within Gadchiroli district in India.

A local source said, “If one person in the family [converts to] Christianity, the rest of the family unites with the village and all of them immediately socially boycott that person.”

Please pray for strength for Christians in the Gadchiroli district who are extremely fearful. Some families have given up the faith, but many are still standing with much courage. Pray too for physical and emotional healing for Gallu – may he keenly experience the Lord’s nearness as he recovers.

Thank you for your prayers

  1. I had the privilege in 2007 to live and experience Indian culture for 3 months on an India/Namibia scholarship programme, and enjoyed hostel life in a suburb some 12 kms north of New Delhi called Narela. Despite being overwhelmed by the HUGE population, it was very evident that the majority practised Hinduism, who followed their numerous gods and goddesses. For an Indian to denounce his/her religion to follow Jesus, is a bold but dangerous step of faith. As in Gallu’s case, it’s more often than not an emotional and physical ordeal. Yet Father God is a God of mercy, love and grace. For Gallu, Psalm 130:7 was indeed a mighty abundant redemption. May he be a shining light in that spiritual darkness (Ps.18:32 and Prov 3:1-6) All glory, honor and praise be to our Father in Heaven (Ps. 91:1-7)
