Six Christian families in a village in Chhattisgarh State, India, have experienced community pressure from the time of their conversion.
They were socially excluded, and the adults lost their jobs. On August 18, 2022, Hindu radicals disrupted their church service and took the Bibles of all the believers. One Christian suggested that the intruders read the Bibles they confiscated, which angered them. The next day, the group returned with representatives from the media. One believer responded to media questions by sharing his testimony of faith, which further incensed the Hindu mob, which then went from house to house, damaging the homes of the Christians.
