Pastor Sent Home to Die After Severe Beating

[196] prayers in [13] nations have been posted for Pastor Rajan.

Pastor Rajan is an impoverished day laborer with three children, ages 2, 7 and 13. He also pastors four house churches. During a church service at his father’s house, local members of Hindu nationalist groups burst in and beat him severely. They had him arrested and paid the police to beat him as well. He was eventually released, but he was in such bad shape that he was unconscious for a day and a half. He suffered a few fractured ribs and severe bruising. Pastor Rajan was released from the hospital in June, but he has multiple brain bleeds that cannot be repaired surgically, and the doctors expect him to die.
