Unrest in Manipur Exposes Christians to Attacks

[153] prayers in [13] nations have been posted for Christians in Manipur.

The Indian state of Manipur is experiencing mass protests and fighting among indigenous tribal groups and ethnic Meiteis. The government is considering granting Meitei people the same government benefits as the tribal groups, which has led to widespread demonstrations and fighting. Many of the tribal groups are Christian, while the Meiteis are predominately Hindu and have burned schools, houses, cars and churches during the unrest. Pray for peace in this region and that the current violence doesn’t turn into widespread persecution against Christians, which has not been common in Manipur state.
