Pastor faces death threats by Hindu mob in India


A pastor in India’s central state of Madhya Pradesh has been falsely charged with forcible conversion and received death threats even as his attackers are roaming free.


On the 14th of January, a mob of more than 20 radical Hindu nationalists physically attacked Pastor Dudwe and six other Christians, including his wife, their 5-year-old daughter, a 16-year-old girl, and four men.

“My wife caught the rod and stopped it from hitting our daughter,” Pastor Dudwe was quoted as saying. “I still get terrified at the thought of their brutality, that they showed no mercy toward my little girl.”

In a video of the attack, Christian women are seen pleading with the mob to allow them to give water to the pastor who had fallen to the ground semi-conscious with a bloody nose and unable to lift any part of his body.

The pastor’s wife and brothers-in-law, Aakash Joshi and Vikas Joshi, were also seriously injured in the attack.
