Indian Pastor Accused of Illegal Conversions

(Worthy News) - The pastor of a church in the village of Raiguda in India's Orissa state was arrested earlier this month for "illegally" converting 300 people to Christianity.

According to Barnabas Aid, police arrested and imprisoned Pastor Sisir Nayak after local Hindus accused him of falsely convincing more than 300 members of the Munda tribe to become Christians.

Although India's "freedom of religion" laws look like protective measures, this legislation only serves to make it more difficult for Hindus to convert to another faith. Freedom of religion laws are also misused to punish Christians for evangelizing by encouraging unprovoked attacks against evangelists.
