(Worthy News) - Berating and slapping a pastor for reading the Bible instead of Hindu texts, police in Uttar Pradesh state, India last month detained six Christians under “unlawful assembly” laws for worshiping together, sources said.

After traveling from Etah village to a church in nearby Pujaripurvah, the six Christians were detained for nine days before they were granted bail by Bahriach District’s Second Class Judicial Magistrate Court on July 5.

Police on June 25 arrived at the worship service in Pujaripurvah village and confiscated Bibles, hymn books and devotionals. Station House Officer (SHO) Aravind Kumar of Nanpara demanded that Pastor Asha Ram Sahni hand over literature he suspected was used to convert people, the church leader said.

  1. As degrading and painful as this has to be, we as Christians accept that these things need to happen (as written) before the one event that 1/2 the world prays for to happen, and the other 1/2 ridicules - takes place. Pay attention to Prophesy. We will be hated and persecuted. It is all part of the package. To expect the blind to have awakenings of spiritual light first requires that Christians, true followers of the Christ pray for their awakening with the same love that we pray for ourselves.
