“Religious freedom laws” recently passed in the Indian states of Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh are targeted at Christian missionaries and their converts.
Freedom? Essentially, if you want to renounce Christianity and return to Hinduism or other traditional religions, you won’t be penalized. Otherwise, you need to apply thirty days in advance most likely to have your petition denied. If you fail to give notice of your intent to convert, you’ll be fined and/or imprisioned for up to three years.
Gospel for Asia’s site quotes national BJP chief Rajnath Singh who admitted to ordering all state governments to bring in:
“legislation forcefully punishing conversions to the purpose of destroying the plans of Christian missionaries.”
Overt persecution. How far are we from this in America? Please pray for the millions of women, men, and children who now face even higher stakes in making their choice about eternity.
