India: The Rising Levels of Violence against Christians

The levels of violence against Christians in India from Hindu extremists have significantly intensified. And since the onset of the pandemic, the challenges facing persecuted believers have become even more alarming. On May 18th, the father of Pastor Ramesh Bumbariya was shot dead during an attack on his Christian family in Rajasthan state. A mob of 15 radical Hindu nationalists – carrying swords, sickles, and a gun – attacked the pastor’s family at their home in Banswara District, killing his 52-year-old father Bhima. Three other family members were injured in the attack. VOM Canada’s Greg Musselman spoke with Abihijit Nayak, the Director of Step, a ministry partner of The Voice of the Martyrs Canada, about the rise of persecution in India and the extra struggles facing Christians during the pandemic.
