Pray for Christians Targeted in Reconversion Campaigns

[232] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Christians in India.

Hindu activists are planning large-scale reconversion programs throughout India on Dec. 25 to bring Christians and Muslims "back to Hinduism." Rajeshwar Singh, leader of a Hindu extremist group, was reported as saying, "A large number of citizens of this country had earlier left Hinduism due to enticement and fear. ... Now they are coming back to their original faith. Christian missionaries have been doing large-scale illegal conversions in this country. ... It is time we take control." The reconversion programs will be centered in the city of Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh state. Organizers have even gone so far as to solicit donations for the events, sending letters to homes in Aligarh. "Dec. 25 and the weeks afterward are a critical time for Christians in India," said VOM’s regional director for India. "Please pray for Christians throughout the country as we anticipate a rise in attacks on believers."
