India: Missionaries to Unreached Tribe Attacked

Friday, January 10, 2003 | Tag Cloud

Hindu radicals attacked missionaries working among the Dhakti Bhils in the Thar Desert of Rajasthan Christmas week.

The militants destroyed an electric generator, microphone and Christian literature, and then turned on the missionaries themselves. The exact state of the missionaries' wellbeing was not known. Due to problems with communication, a messenger was sent to the site for more information.

The Dhakti Bhils are an unreached people group that inhabit the Thar Desert of Rajasthan and neighboring Pakistan. The missionaries had pioneered work among them and had planted a small worshipping congregation among them.
