(Worthy News) - Last month in Punjab state, India, a Christian was severely beaten after he protested the desecration of a Christian graveyard by local Hindus.

According to Barnabas Aid, Anoop Masih, an auto-rickshaw driver, was ambushed by seven men when he tried to pick up a fare.

"They hit me all over my body with many blows using their fists and legs, and then started to hit me in my private parts. One of them was wearing boots and his boot repeatedly hit one of my testicles so hard that I collapsed with the intensity of pain and I almost thought I’ll soon be dead," said Masih.

The attackers fled, leaving Masih lying on the street.

Earlier that day, Masih had admonished a group of Hindus who were throwing garbage on a graveyard reserved for Christians.

"I told them not to demean the Christian land and reminded them that the sentiments of the Christians are with their dead buried here," said Masih.

Later that day Masih was violently reminded that Christians have no say in Punjab.
