Young Christian Woman Killed by Neighbors

[356] prayers in [20] nations have been posted for Naadir.

A young woman from Jharkhand state, in eastern India, was attacked and killed by neighbors in front of her home recently as her husband and 3-year-old daughter watched in horror. Qacha married her husband, Naadir, in 2014, and they both became Christians in 2017. On Aug. 27, 2019, the family was preparing to have dinner when Naadir’s father came to the door and began arguing with Qacha. When he began to beat her with a stick, Naadir and his younger brother intervened. In the ensuing scuffle, Naadir’s brother struck his father with an axe. At that point, a group of neighbors drinking nearby joined the fight, beating Qacha to death as Naadir and his daughter watched from behind some bushes. Afterward, the men chanted, “Whoever will do ‘hallelujah’ [a reference to Christians] will have the same consequences!” Please pray that the peace of God will comfort Naadir and his daughter, and pray for the protection of other Christians in the region.
