Christians In Orissa (India)

November 20, 2008

A report out today says that Hindu extremist groups are offering rewards for the killing of Christians. They are offering as much as $250 to kill pastors. Offers include foreign liquor, chicken, mutton and weapons.

Orissa has suffered a series of murders and arson attacks in recent months, with at least 67 Christians killed, according to the Roman Catholic Church. Several thousand homes have been razed and hundreds of places of worship destroyed, and crops are now wasting in the fields. In recent weeks, the violence has subsided but at least 11,000 Christian refugees remain in camps in Kandhamal, the district worst affected.

Pray for Believers in Orissa, India.
