(Worthy News) - A Christian villager was tortured for his faith last month in Chhattisgarh state.

According to Barnabas Aid, Jai Singh was warned that if he didn't leave Paremapara village he would be cut to pieces. Singh was then tortured by Hindus with a heated coin applied to his tongue and other parts of his body as punishment for refusing to deny Christ.

After burning him with the hot coin, mustard oil was applied to Singh's body to cause even more pain.

"This absolutely inhumane cruelty to a human being should shock the nation," said John Dayal, spokesperson of the United Christian Forum. "It is a reflection of the feudal power structures at the grassroots, bolstered by caste and political muscle power, and religious bigotry. But more dangerous is the evidence of impunity in the state administrative and police structures. While this permeates most states of India, Chhattisgarh is amongst the most notorious."
