(Worthy News) - Christians in a tribal village in India had their bamboo hut church burned down by animists on December 1st, 5 days after their Bibles were confiscated and set to a bonfire.

Pastor Bibudan Pradhan was visiting Perigaon village in Odisha state to conduct a worship service, when he and his wife were dragged away by tribals and held hostage for 4 hours.

"They abused us in vulgar language, words that I can’t utter with my mouth, and threatened us that their gods and goddesses will swallow us alive for propagating Christianity," he told Morning Star News.

When local Christians attempted to report the incident, police instead forced them to sign an agreement that they would not worship in the village anymore.

“Tribals are dominant in Rayagada, and the tribal families’ sentiments have been affected,” Morning Star News was told by the local Police Superintendent when they contacted him for an explanation.
