Pr Kapil Sharma, is a resident of Barwani District in the state of Madhya Pradesh.
Pr Kapil and his family were all excited and looking forward to celebrate the birth of our Savior Lord Jesus Christ, who came to the world to save sinners.
He made a replica of the manger, depicting the nativity scene and birth of Jesus Christ. This was displayed just outside his home on the courtyard, made with a dry grass and bamboo. A lot effort, hard work and money was spent on this project. Above all, this brought immense joy to Pastor’s kids and to the children in the neighborhood.
On 23rd Dec., Pastor had gone out with his family at around 9:30 pm. On their return, to their utter shock and dismay, they arrived to see fire all around the manger. As they rushed to put out the flames, they spotted some youngsters running away from the crime scene.?
Pastor informed the Police who initially passed it off as fire caused due to short circuit malfunction. However, after investigation, Police confirmed that this was a deliberate arson attack.
Celebrating Christmas has become a crime in the free India – especially Madhya Pradesh being one of the worst states. An FIR has been lodged and Police have launched an investigation.
