Global Council of Indian Christians (GCIC)

(Agenzia Fides) – Beaten and stripped naked in the street: is the fate of the Christian Pentecostal Indian citizen attacked in the state of Bihar because he preached faith in Christ publicly. As reported to Fides by the Global Council of Indian Christians (GCIC), the incident occurred in the district of Patna, capital of Bihar. The Christian Deepak Kumar had stopped in front of Barh railway station and started to speak publicly of Christ, proclaiming his Gospel to who wanted to listen to him.
Suddenly ten militants, allegedly belonging to Hindu extremist groups, approached and started to beat and insult him, leaving him on the ground half naked and wounded. Sajan K George, president of the Global Council of Indian Christians (GCIC) has condemned the violence and told Fides: “These men have committed a crime and must be stopped. Kumar was not doing anything illegal: he was simply talking to people, exercising a freedom enshrined in the Constitution. The law is equal for everyone: even Christians are Indian citizens”.
