Pastor Attacked by Hindu Radicals

[212] prayers in [14] nations have been posted for Pastor Tamang.

Pastor Bhim Tamang, 63, was visiting a new believer in Christ and sharing the Word of God with him on Sept. 4 when a group of Hindu radicals burst into the home. They hit Bhim, broke his hearing aid, burned his Bible and warned him to stop preaching. Police officers arrived to protect Bhim and his colleagues, but the radicals pushed through and smeared black paint on Bhim’s face. The police believed that, due to the aggressiveness of the radicals, Bhim and his colleagues would not be safe at the local station, so they took the Christians to district headquarters. Pastor Bhim’s son reported that the Hindu radicals were well organized and ready to escalate the attack if any other Christians had stepped in. Pastor Bhim, who has been imprisoned for his Christian faith in the past, said he was glad about the incident because he becomes more courageous during seasons of persecution.
