Over a dozen Christian families left homeless after attack in India

According to sources reached by International Christian Concern (ICC), fifteen Christian families from three villages in India’s Chhattisgarh State were left homeless after being attacked by religious fanatics.


On the 22nd of September, members of the Sarya Adivasi Samaj (SAM) group summoned fifteen Christian families to a meeting in Kakadabeda village. At the meeting, the Christians were told they had to renounce their faith or they would be forced to leave their villages.

Because the Christians refused to obey, SAM members attacked them. The Christians were beaten and forced to sign an affidavit which stated they agreed to stop receiving government subsidies, including basic food assistance that is normally distributed on a monthly basis.

In total, fifteen homes were demolished over the course of two days, including ten in Kakadabeda, two in Tiliyabeda, and three in Singanpur. The Christian families fled into the jungle for safety. Many fear further attacks by SAM members. Most of them don’t believe they will receive any form of justice.
