Faithful Preacher Dies After Beating by Hindu Radicals

[184] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Sita and children.

Biman was preaching the gospel in five villages near his home, intending to plant churches. In one village, he was tutoring poor children, hoping to also lead their parents to Christ. In February, while ministering to these children, Biman was surrounded by a group of radical Hindus who attacked him. Many others joined in and beat the pastor mercilessly. By the time they stopped, he was badly bruised. Biman managed to get back home but was experiencing severe pain. His health steadily deteriorated, and he died from his injuries the next day. Biman is survived by his wife, Sita, and two children, ages 8 and 10.
