Pastor Jailed on False Charges

[210] prayers in [13] nations have been posted for Pastor Jawahar.

On Dec. 26, Pastor Jawahar was sitting in his home in western India, talking with members of his church, when Hindu fanatics—including police officers—burst in, accusing the Christians of trying to convert Hindus by fraud. After interrogation and intimidation in Jawahar’s home, the police took him and two elders to the police station in a larger town. Pastor Jawahar was jailed without due legal process. He was released after 45 days and forced to pay a large fine with money his wife had to borrow at high interest. Pastor Jawahar was discouraged about finding himself in prison, but also confident that he would not lose his faith or stop his kingdom service. He is now receiving assistance to pay this debt and to provide for his family’s needs.
