India: Christians in Haryana Assaulted at Burial

FAIRDABAD (Worthy News)-- A mob of more than 700 Hindus assaulted 45 mourners as they began burial rites for an elderly Christian woman at a cemetery in Faridabad, India, on March 6.

According to Morning Star News, about 35 Christians were hospitalized.

Eventually the Christians were forced to flee with the very body they had intended to bury. They later returned, escorted by two police vehicles, but the mob blocked them from burying the body.

Although the funeral party had all the required paperwork for a Christian burial, Muslims claimed that the plot was too close to their village.

A plot had been allotted to Christians in 2008 near Budhana village outside Faridabad, but opposition from local villagers forced authorities to re-allocate another plot close to Hindu and Muslim cemeteries near Pali, where the same scenario was repeated.

  1. So the muslims got the Hindus to attack.. What weak willed useful idiots. It is bad enough to hear they do such things to anyone, but I always try to imagine myself in the place of those people treated to this kind of outrage and that's what we Christians should all be doing. How would we feel if this was our own family just trying to bury our precious loved one?

  2. Again grateful to be in America. Again heart stricken for my Christian family around the world who can't live in peace and are being brutalized and slaughtered.

  3. What the Christian needs today is the daily dispensed grace that biblical Stephen had. After all on the other side, everything perfect is waiting for them as Jesus promised in Jn.14:1-3. In view of Rev.14:13, ultimate victory is what they should be aiming at, since the hatred around is pervasive and galloping as to degree at breakneck speed. Who knows what the persecution climate will be like by this time next year! May the Lord daily give us all perfect love that drives out fear1Jn.4:17-18.
